Seven Nights

Your city after dark

Thu 14

“Random thoughts for Valentine’s Day: Today is a holiday invented by greeting-card companies to make people feel like crap.” Whether or not you concur with that sentiment from the opening of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, we can probably all agree that taking your date to a slammed nightclub isn’t as romantic as a fancy dinner and flowers—those never go out of style. But one party that’ll make it easiest for you to go from dance floor to pants-on-the-floor is Collective Zoo’s second annual Love & Lust Sleepover. In the Artisan lounge, all are welcome to dance to Kid Conrad’s tunes, but for the singles set, the third floor of the Artisan will be transformed into a sexy sleepover, and rooms come with lust-themed gift packages including goodies from Better Than New lifestyle boutique. Couples get love packages in their rooms. Mood Restaurant also features a special prix-fixe menu. Visit for room packages and pricing. (1501 W. Sahara Ave., 9 p.m.)

Fri 15

With Valentine’s Day falling on a Thursday, that doesn’t leave much time to get frisky and have an all-morning cuddle session. So the next night, get all riled up at the second annual Valentine’s Lingerie & Masquerade Ball: Angels in Bondage. (At the Erotic Heritage Museum, 9 p.m.,

Sat 16

Cedric Gervais has classed it up a bit from “Sh*t Show” to “Le Show” for his next Las Vegas residency ($1 says it’s probably because he’s at a Wynn property). But no matter what it’s called, the French DJ/producer won’t compromise with the energy and will work the crowd into a frenzy at Surrender as they run around joking they’re looking for “Molly” in reference to his hit track. We’re considering getting a “Hello, my name is Molly” sticker, and yelling back, “Here I am!” (In Encore, 10:30 p.m., Isn’t it nice we can now count on Saturdays at Body English for refreshingly different underground sounds? The awesomeness continues with Hard festival mastermind and DJ Destructo, some Spanish sounds with Oliver and Dirtybird label owner and techno/house DJ/producer Claude VonStroke. (In Hard Rock Hotel, 10 p.m.,

Sun 17

Yeah! Another XIV Sessions is here at Hyde! This month’s theme is Neon Jungle so, party monkeys, get dressed up in your best outfits while Zen Freeman and Julien Nolan drop the beats that will make you go bananas. (In Bellagio, 5 p.m., Got kids who love dancing around? The Jump for Joy Foundation and Tao Cares present the Dance Against Obesity Camp J.U.M.P. event. Dance instructors will be on hand as DJs Vice and Lema get everyone moving, including featured performances from Visual Audio, the Prodigy Dance Crew, Sean and John, and Hypnotix/WHK/TBP. Parents can attend a seminar about healthy eating habits with Tao Group sous chef Marc Marrone and Paul Rosenberg of Real Results Fitness. Register in advance at (In the Venetian, 12:30 p.m.) Once you drop the little ones off with a sitter, head back out to Lavo for the Baller’s Ball with Chris Paul of the Los Angeles Clippers. (In the Palazzo, 11 p.m., We’re still bummed Laurie’s baby wasn’t born a zombie, and are missing T-Dog like crazy. But you can lament and/or cheer the goings-on during The Walking Dead with the cast of Evil Dead: The Musical as they host weekly viewing parties of the AMC show at Hi Scores Bar-Arcade. (65 S. Stephanie St., 8 p.m.,

Mon 18

If the lines were too long to get hitched over Valentine’s Day weekend, the Pop-Up Wedding Chapel has returned to the Cosmopolitan. Because nothing says “I love you” like a ring that doubles as an eraser. (Daily at 3 p.m.,

Tue 19

Tonight will be a celebration at Pure when Miguel hosts. The R&B singer just scored a Grammy, wowed the awards’ audience with his performance alongside Wiz Khalifa, and found a new fan in Kelly Clarkson as she praised him during her acceptance speech. (In Caesars Palace, 10 p.m.,

Wed 20

Celebrate fashion, art and music with a new Wednesday night party at Commonwealth, simply called Wednesdays. Anyone down for a few rounds of “Let’s Get Naked and See Who’s Stronger”? The drink, not the game. (525 Fremont St., 6 p.m.,

The Executioner

By Deanna Rilling

You may want to invest in those big ol’ earmuff headphones folks who work around airplanes wear, because 100,000 watts of sound is coming to rattle your soul. Bass-music master Excision is bringing his new Execution Tour to Las Vegas’ House of Blues for his first solo headlining show. He’s also got a grip of subwoofers and an insane true-3-D video-mapping stage experience that will blow your minds as much as your eardrums. Vegas Seven geeked out on all the tech specs with Excision before the February 15 show.
