The outrageously scandalous and award-winning musical “Cabaret” with lingerie-clad female musicians of the seedy, debauched Kit Kat Klub in Berlin launches an eight-show run at the Smith Center.
The Marvel Avengers STATION (Scientific Training and Tactical Intelligence Operative Network) attraction has its official opening at Treasure Island.
On display is an extensive range of equipment, including Captain America’s uniform and shield, Ant Man’s helmet, Iron Man’s MK45 suit and Hawkeye and Black Widow’s weapons.
As part of Day 1 of the EDMbiz Conference & Expo at Caesars Palace, Afrojack spins at Omnia. Gryffin spins the dual decks at Prism on the terrace at Omnia, and DJ Crooked is behind the wheels of steel in the Heart of Omnia.
Makj spins at Drai’s Nightclub atop the Cromwell.
DJ Mike Attack is at Bond in the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.
Eli Paperboy Reed plays Vinyl at the Hard Rock Hotel.
Geeks Who Drink is at Beerhaus in the Park.
And a reminder about a story we posted last Tuesday: Hard Rock Cafe on the Strip and Hard Rock Cafe at the Hard Rock Hotel are set to party like it’s 1971. On June 14, 1971, Peter Morton and Isaac Tigrett opened their first Hard Rock Cafe in London, with Eric Clapton being the first rocker to leave behind his guitar to hang on the wall, which started the companywide memorabilia craze.
Today, the empire has grown to 165 cafes, 23 hotels and 11 casinos in 69 countries. Now more than four decades later, the 45th birthday honors the military today with 71-cent burgers. 1970s music will be the only era played until closing. Last year, the Hard Rock hosted more than 31,000 music events.
We’ll have my review of “Cabaret” and Q+A with Clint Holmes and Ken Henderson about their new Palazzo show. Star chef Mario Batali serves Red dinners at his Las Vegas restaurants, and despite this being liquor central, we have a tea convention for global aficionados.
