On the surface, Las Vegas looks pretty chill.
All of the pool party grand openings are out of the way, Gronk has gone back to doing whatever he does when he’s not in Vegas, and the rest of America is huddled up with their phones reading that Brad Pitt GQ interview.
But this is the calm before the storm, and the storm’s coming straight to T-Mobile Arena.

Fight Night Beckons
Super middleweights Canelo Álvarez vs. Julio César Chávez—flanked by scantily clad “Tecate girls”—stood toe-to-toe at Wednesday’s weigh-in ahead of their Saturday fight at the Strip’s newest arena.
In between them: The Golden Boy himself, gold medalist, former champ and Mervyn’s fashion maven Oscar de la Hoya.
De la Hoya, as promoter, will be front-and-center for the sold out fight, and we’re sure to see plenty of celebs ringside as well when Álvarez and Chávez go at it in a couple of nights.
By the way, the official fight after-party is at ARIA’s Jewel Nightclub.
Vegas Extends Open Arms for Journey
Every day is Journey Day in the Vegas Seven offices. It’s about time the rest of the world caught up.
The legendary rock group was given the honor just a few hours before kicking off their 2017 residency at The Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.
Members Neal Schon, Ross Valory, Steve Smith, Jonathan Cain, and Arnel Pineda greeted fans and media at the unveiling of Journey’s memorabilia case (swipe on photos) inside the resort.
Journey is set for nine shows in May at The Joint, with the May 3, 10 and 17 performances to feature front-to-back performances of albums Escape and Frontiers.
Canelo-Chávez will not be the only big draw this weekend. Former wrestler and star of Universal Soldier: The Return and Half Past Dead 2 Goldberg will be making an appearance at Sugar Factory inside Fashion Show Mall on Saturday.
When you stop in, you can try the limited edition “Gold-Burger.” It’s a real thing.
