Neon Night Light at EBC/Surrender The indoor/outdoor nightspot presents a special, black-light edition of its weekly nighttime pool party. Wear glow-in-the-dark, neon and swimwear, and deck yourself out with glow bracelet, T-shirt and pool raft giveaways. In the booth: Swanky Tunes. September 27, doors at 10:30 p.m., $40 men, $30 women, locals and industry free.
Rock ’N Brew at Chateau Beerfest season is in full swing, though its best events usually don’t take you to Center Strip—let alone overlook the Bellagio fountains. Enjoy over 100 beers (including local breweries like Joseph James and regional producers like Lagunitas), plus live music by the Sin City Sinners and Love Vendetta, with proceeds benefitting UNLV’s Beverage Management Club. So after that last IPA, don’t feel full—feel philanthropic! September 28, doors at 6:30 p.m., $30.
Lacey Chabert and Clinton Sparks at Gallery The Planet Hollywood nightspot delivers on its hotel’s name this weekend. Chabert—you probably remember her as brunette beauty Gretchen Wieners from Mean Girls (her hair is full of secrets!)—celebrates her big 3-0 on Friday. Then comes a Saturday night set by DJ and E! News music correspondent Sparks. Lacey Chabert: September 28; Clinton Sparks: September 29; doors at 10:30 p.m., $30 men, $20 women.
