Ready for Avicii’s last Las Vegas run

It’s a sad day when a beloved DJ announces their retirement. Fond memories of “oonza oonza oonzas” and “bwoowahhhs” run over us as we think back on all the amazing parties for which they set the pace. So when we saw Avicii’s touching FB post about his retirement, we were…

Fall in Vegas means pool club closures

Fall in Vegas means pool club closures

In Vegas, we sort of take for granted that we have way more summer than most places. It’s like we have our own groundhog who sees his tan lines every year and gives us six more weeks of summer. But, alas, all good things must come to an end and…

Must dos this weekend in Vegas: Sept. 3 – 6, 2015

Night swimming deserves a loud Las Vegas

Night swimming deserves a loud Las Vegas

Las Vegas in the summer means two things: swimming and holy freaking god it’s hot out here. Those are usually linked. But in Vegas we’re experts at finding ways around stuff, like adverse climates or public indecency laws. Fortunately, physics took care of this one for us. We totally would…

Bodacious bottle service in Las Vegas

Few things in life are more satisfying than seeing someone walking toward you with a bottle of booze that you know is all yours. It’s like that birthday party when you were nine, except with, presumably, more alcohol and fewer clowns. It’s the epitome of Las Vegas partying and it’s…

Pick your Vegas pool club

We’ve each got our own style and personality. Some of us are reserved and enjoy quiet relaxation. And some of us are extroverts who get jealous of puppies for all the attention they get. Stop playing with puppies and look over here. Our personal styles mean a lot when it…

Vegas’ hottest nightclubs sign top DJs

Las Vegas has always been a prime destination for music, but the electronic music scene in particular has taken a liking to the city in the past few years. It should come as no surprise that the big nightclubs in the city are courting famous, internationally-recognized artists and DJs to…

Summer is coming to a close. Soon you’ll be back in your regular grind, whether it be going back to school, the no-vacations-through-the-New-Year policy your boss invoked or saving for that Christmas vacation with family members you don’t even like. Such is life. One last summer stand in Las Vegas,…

Exercise your rights in Las Vegas during Fourth of July weekend

The meaning behind Fourth of July may get caught up between red, white and blue bikinis, backyard barbeques and fireworks, but when you come to Las Vegas this weekend to celebrate your independence, you should remember what our country was built on: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that…

Plunge into Vegas’ pool party scene

Drop the parka, it’s pool season in Las Vegas

Punxsutawney Phil climbed out of his hole on February 2 and, luckily, didn’t see his shadow. While the prediction of an early spring is welcome news to most, let’s be honest, the East Coast will have at least one more big winter storm and rain will hit California hard before…
