Here’s a look at our weekend best bets:
Friday: Pink at MGM Grand
If you missed the singer’s high-flying acrobatic performance at the Grammys this past Sunday, don’t pass up the chance to catch her signature stage theatrics in person Friday night at MGM Grand Garden Arena as the “Try” singer returns with her “Truth About Love Tour.” Tickets are $60 to $150. The show starts at 8 p.m.
Saturday: Moscow Festival Ballet’s “Cinderella” at UNLV

Sunday: Super Bowl XLVIII viewing parties
Backyard grilling on Super Bowl Sunday is good and well, but if you’re in Las Vegas, why not watch the game in Strip style? Check out our 2014 Super Bowl viewing party guide for the skinny on the best places in town to watch the Broncos take on the Seahawks.
