Art N Ink brings an all-in-one fest to South Point

A burlesque show is one small part of an action-packed weekend event at South Point.

Always having too much to do is the lucky dilemma of Las Vegans. What’s even better than deciding between several great events? Having them all happen in the same festival!

Expanding its JuneFest concept, the South Point is packing multiple weekends’ worth of fun into one three-day blowout called Art N Ink. Friday kicks things off with a vendor village of apparel, art and accessories among dozens of tattoo artists inking, and the first 300 attendees to hit the Food Truck FanFest (4 to 8 p.m.) will get a free entrée from the likes of Fukuburger, Sin City Wings and Coast 2 Coast Deli. All three days feature hot burlesque by Yadi and her “voluptuous vixens,” with themes ranging from rockabilly to ’50s starlets to Candyland. The pinup contest and classic car show might feel right in line with all of that, but what about the craft beer tasting on Saturday, or live performances by KC and the Sunshine Band, Tommy Tutone and Toto’s Bobby Kimball? If you can’t find anything to love at this fest, you might not have a pulse.

Las Vegas Art N Ink June 28, 3-11 p.m.; June 29, 1-11 p.m.; June 30, noon-6 p.m.; $45-$60 weekend packages, $15-$40 single-day tickets. South Point, 797-8055.
