Well, it’s Thanksgiving. If you’re reading this, you’ve either recovered from, or haven’t yet succumbed to, the inevitable post-turkey nap. Just don’t let sleep slow your party plans. There’s holiday fun to be had at the Return of the Tryptophan Dance Party at the Bunkhouse. Specials include turkey sloppy Joes and Wild Turkey whiskey, natch. DJs 8-Bit, Aurajin and Rex Dart provide the funky vibes. (124 11th St., 9 p.m., BunkhouseDowntown.com.) At Tao, DJ Five is on deck for the ninth annual Terminate the Turkey bash. Locals enjoy complimentary admission and a sponsored bar from Hangar 1 vodka 11 p.m.-midnight. (In the Venetian, 10 p.m., TaoLasVegas.com.)

What’s that? You’re complaining about how infrequently you find it appropriate to wear a space suit? Cry no more, cosmonaut, and come to Hard Hat Lounge for Deep Sbass, a space-themed “cosmic costume party.” EJ tha DJ, E-Rok and more guide your musical journey. (1675 Industrial Rd., 8 p.m., Facebook.com/HardHatBar.) Still craving something tasty after yesterday’s big meal? Head to House of Blues and catch drum and bass shaker Dieselboy lead the sixth annual Bass Gravy. This room-rumbling blowout is free for anyone 21+, $15 for everyone else. (In Mandalay Bay, 10:30 p.m., Facebook.com/HyperAudio.) What’s nicer than a Friday night at the Cosmopolitan’s Ice Rink? Sounds by Vice while you skate. Spend $50 at Vice’s sneaker store, CRSVR, and you can shred the ice for free. (10 p.m., CosmopolitanLasVegas.com.) Grammy-nominated producer Dirty South returns to Life for the first time since releasing With You, his soundtrack and short film project, earlier this month. While he’s said he won’t play many of the emotional tracks live, you can anticipate fresh remixes. (In SLS, 10:30 p.m., SLSLasVegas.com.)

DJ Five

Need four reasons to attend the Winter Formal edition of Bicycle Prom? Music is by TotesCity, bike valet is available, dress code is “cyclist chic” and oh, yeah, you can compete for the title of prom queen and king! Join the party at Artifice at 10 p.m., or meet fellow cyclists at UNLV’s student union at 9 p.m. and ride over together. This definitely beats the high school experience. (1025 First St., Suite A, 10 p.m., TotesCity.com/BicycleProm.) Can’t decide what to do next? Get down to an array of hits at the Rockabilly vs. ’80s Dance Party at Beauty Bar. The ozone will just have to deal with all the hairspray in the air tonight. (517 Fremont St., 10 p.m., TheBeautyBar.com.)

Sunday, Novermber 30

Shout out to Scorpios and Sagittarii! Liaison celebrates all November babies during this edition of Unlocked Sundays. Locals are free, and Nick Ayler mans the turntables, per usual. (In Bally’s, 10 p.m., LiaisonLasVegas.com.) 

Monday, December 1

Fresh off their Friend Zone tour, dance duo Candyland returns to Marquee. Josie of Candyland explained the tour name to RecoilMag.com this way: “If people come to [our] show and they don’t dance with someone in a way that gets them out of the friend zone, I’m not doing my job right.” So … good luck! (In the Cosmopolitan, 10 p.m., MarqueeLasVegas.com.)

If you’ve slept on the underground vibes at Downtown Cocktail Room’s Tuesday Cymatic Sessions, now is a good time to get acquainted. House star Oscar L. comes to us from Spain, with support by local DJ, Vixen. (111 Las Vegas Blvd. South, 10 p.m., Facebook.com/CymaticSessions.) Feeling warm and fuzzy? You can walk away with $2,500 for winning the Ugly Sweater Contest at
1 Oak. Then, you should probably give some of the prize money to the aunt who bought you that thing. (In The Mirage, 10:30 p.m., 1OakLasVegas.com.)

Wednesday, December 3

Mix a little holiday spirit in with your spirit drinking and bring a new, unwrapped toy to Surrender. You’ll receive complimentary entry and open bar from 11 p.m.-midnight during the fourth annual Toy Drive for Communities in Schools. German house producer Tujamo handles the tunes. (In Encore, 10:30 p.m., SurrenderNightclub.com.)
