It’s Fat Tuesday on the Mardi Gras calendar, so who better than multiplatinum rapper and hip-hop artist Fat Joe to celebrate by hosting and performing at Pure in Caesars Palace.

The spirit of Carnaval also is captured at Sushi Samba in the Palazzo with samba dancers, booming batucada drummers, bossa nova DJs and a live TV feed of the festivities in Rio de Janeiro.

Entertainers from Chippendales at The Rio, Josh Strickland and the cast of “Peepshow” at Planet Hollywood, Frank Marino’s “Divas Las Vegas” at The Quad and Anthony Cools will ride the ceiling-high fantasy floats in the Show in the Sky performance at The Rio to throw out Mardi Gras beads to the crowd.

Two of the 95-feet x 44-feet exterior building signs start installation on the Downtown Grand Hotel as the new model rooms are unveiled. The signs feature photos of a King and Queen of Downtown, which will be part of the property’s upcoming campaign “Make Your Move.”


Our preview of all the Valentine’s Day happenings, wedding crasher parties and faux ceremonies, plus, the arrival of the 2013 Sports Illustrated Swimwear Issue models.
