While others are bundling up, Las Vegas is set for sunshine and clear skies this weekend. Get out and enjoy the warm weather with plenty to explore across the city.
Here’s a look at our weekend best bets:
Friday - Saturday: KISS at the Hard Rock
Get ready to rock and roll all night — and month — as face-painted rock legends KISS kick off the first weekend of their November residency at the Joint with a set of classics crafted especially for their Las Vegas run. Tickets are $49.50 to $225. Shows start at 8 p.m.
Tonight - Sunday: “Wicked” at the Smith Center
Halloween may be past, but the witching hour ain’t over — yet. Don’t miss your last chance to catch the Broadway hit as it wraps its extended run at the Smith Center’s Reynolds Hall this weekend. Tickets are $45 to $161. Shows are at 7:30 p.m. today through Saturday and at 2 p.m. Sunday.
Sunday: Las Vegas Legends vs. Monterrey Flash at the Orleans
Outdoor soccer is overrated. Get your futbol fix this weekend and cheer on the home team as the Professional Arena Soccer League’s Las Vegas Legends and the Monterrey Flash go head-to-head inside Orleans Arena for an afternoon of goal-worthy excitement.
Saturday: The Black Keys at the Cosmopolitan
Blues-garage rock favorites The Black Keys return to Las Vegas for the first time since their NYE run at the Hard Rock two years ago, this time bringing new tracks from their latest album “Turn Blue” to the Chelsea. British wunderkind Jake Bugg opens. Tickets are $75. The show starts at 9 p.m.
Saturday: 40th annual Children’s Service Guild holiday boutique at the Elks Lodge
Get your holiday decorating in early and stock up on unique goods at this boutique held by Child’s Service Guild. The shop will feature original handmade gifts and decor including tree ornaments, wreaths, Thanksgiving crafts, jams and baked goods, baby and pet items and more. The event also will include a raffle,performance by Las Vegas High School Madrigal Choir and an appearance from Santa himself. The event is 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and is free, with all proceeds and donations going to benefit the nonprofit.
The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas dares to be different. From the hotel’s red reservations desks to fine art found throughout the resort, The Cosmopolitan’s signature style is helping to pave its own path on the Las Vegas Strip.
Upon entering the resort, you’re greeted by pillars of video boards playing video art by Digital Kitchen and David Rockwell Studio exclusively produced for The Cosmopolitan. Just beyond that, you’ll find all your favorite casino games on the resort’s 100,000-square-foot casino floor.
The Cosmopolitan’s rooms standout as the resort’s most unique feature. About 2,220 of The Cosmopolitan’s 2,995 rooms have 6-foot deep terraces that span the length of the room, a first at a modern Strip hotel. Other in-room amenities include soaking tubs, kitchenettes and quirky accessories like artsy coffee table books.
The dining experience at The Cosmopolitan isn’t something you’ll find at other Strip resorts, either. All of The Cosmopolitan’s 13 restaurateurs are new to the Las Vegas market. You’ll find American steakhouse fare in a modern setting at STK, top-notch sushi at Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill and the freshest fish flown in from the Mediterranean daily at Estiatorio Milos.
Whether the sun is up or down, Marquee Nightclub & Dayclub is the place to find the party at The Cosmopolitan. The venue is a dayclub/nightclub, complete with a pool and cabanas outside and three different rooms with three different vibes inside.
If nightclubs aren’t your thing, you can grab a drink at one of The Cosmopolitan’s five other bars, like The Chandelier, which is encased in 2 million dripping crystals.
