Stripped

This dance if from a Russian ... with love

January 25th, 2011

When people guess my heritage, it's usual somewhere in Eastern Europe. So why fight it?

  • I worked on Monday for many reasons, mostly because of a bad weekend of soul-searching.

  • I fidgeted with my bottoms. I re-tied my top. I tried to impress during this rare Las Vegas audition.

  • It would have been good to turn to B, but he hates to be reminded that my work is dirty and illegal. Disappointment all around.

  • Black Bird is a picky eater and is not drinking, but her mom -- she eats everything.

  • The reservation doesn't allow non-natives, but one of us was a card-carrying American Indian with health-care needs.

  • Before the pregnancy, we used to be great drinking buddies. Maybe it was because of her heritage?

  • A breakup with B is necessary. Why stay with someone who doesn't appreciate passion and loyalty?

  • "Space" gave way to "camping trip" after an unexpected tryst with "B" in a motel room.

  • My head spinning, I probed further for explanation as to what I'd stumbled on. The outcome was not as planned.

  • In Alaska, there is no 3-for-$100 lap dance area. There are only $20. And, we go nude. Totally.

  • I had to explain jokes to a curious kid, and eventually dozed off. It's just as well.

  • The two breakout acts played the Cosmo after performing at Coachella.

  • The show alludes to naughty—but don't expect it to go there.

  • Lorde has the pipes to carry her performance, but the singer could use a full band.

  • The west side water park turns the H2O on this weekend.

  • From UNLVino’s 40th anniversary to a hotly contested fight night at MGM Grand Garden Arena — a rematch between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley — ’tis indeed a weekend to eat, drink and be merry in Las Vegas.

  • Residency lineup for upcoming party spot favors artists on the rise over expensive DJ superstars.

  • A big fan of the UNLV team who won the 1989-90 NCAA national championship, Brandon Flowers of The Killers wore Rebel red during a performance Saturday at Reunion Park at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

  • One guy has a Stone Cold Steve Austin shirt on. I believe in fashion terms that’s called “sad vintage."

  • The weekend ahead is packed with star power, from the Academy of Country Music’s five days of celebration starting tonight with Hunter Hayes to sports champions teeing up for a cause in the annual Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational at Shadow Creek.

  • Just months ahead of its Labor Day Weekend debut, the new north-Strip resort announces a 20,000-square-foot party venue.

  • The weekend ahead is laid back and locals-friendly, with a number of concerts, plays and even a chili cook-off to keep the whole family entertained. Here’s a look at our weekend best bets.

  • Kirn's new memoir focuses on the killer, as well as his own desire to be near him.

  • This month is Self-Injury Awareness Month, a grassroots event focused on bringing attention to self-harm and self-injury — commonly in the form of cutting — and combating stereotypes surrounding the condition.

  • The weekend ahead is one of signature Las Vegas entertainment, ranging from a revamped Strip classic to a new take on Cirque du Soleil for charity to community art for locals downtown. Here’s a look at our weekend best bets:

  • If you’re still struggling with the right way to pop the question — or with the right ring to choose — Las Vegas-based nonprofit the American Gem Society has got you covered with their Perfect Proposal Toolkit.

  • The Henderson waterpark opens May 24. Get your passes now!

  • St. Patrick’s Day Weekend is upon us with plenty of festivities and food and drink specials across the Strip. But if green isn’t your color — or you’re looking for something a little different — there’s still plenty else to keep you entertained. Here’s a look at our weekend best bets.

  • The new face of burlesque in Las Vegas is unpredictable, fun and downright sexy!

  • The Pinball Hall of Fame has a whole lot more than just the standard arcade game—Just take a spin on the "Relax-a-lator."
