Bike Fest Welcome Party at Vanguard The Las Vegas BikeFest rolls into town this weekend, with events planned all across the city. Kick the motorcycle extravaganza off right at the Downtown watering hole, where they’ll be serving $2 Buds, $3 PBRs and $5 Jack Daniel’s cocktails all day long on Thursday. And for the hardcore bikers: BikeFest registrants receive happy hour drink specials all day Friday through Sunday. September 29, all day, free.
Dirty South at Marquee The Serbian-born Australian DJ picked up a Grammy nom for his 2008 remix of Marquee resident DJ Kaskade’s track “Sorry.” He returns to the Cosmo club to spin more of his acclaimed ear kandi Friday night. September 30, doors at 9:30 p.m., $30 men, $20 women.
Three 6 Mafia at Ditch Fridays It may be “hard out here for a pimp,” but everyone can enjoy the sights and sounds Friday at the Palms. “Ditch” the office and head to the hotel’s Pool & Bungalows for the afternoon to watch the Academy Award-winning crew take the stage. September 30, doors at noon, $25.
Steve Aoki & Sidney Samson at Surrender The two well-known resident DJs take over the tables at the Encore nightspot Friday night. They’ve collaborated before—so be sure to check out their track, “Wake Up Call,” before heading to the beachy, open-air venue. September 30, doors at 10 p.m., $40 men, $30 women.
What Is Your Color? Party at Mix Whether you’re single and ready to mingle, taken or temporarily available, this party is for you. Attendees will receive bracelets indicating their relationship status at the door, so if you’re “off the market” be sure to ask for blue. Singles don pink, yellow represents “taken ... but available” and those looking for a “sexy time” will wear green armbands. After successful parties across the globe, JV Agency brings its ice-breaking bash to the lounge atop Mandalay Bay’s THEhotel. October 1, 10 p.m., $20, ladies free before 11 p.m.
Back to the ’80s (with Tiffany!) at Krave The Strip-side gay club rewinds to a time when parachute pants, leg warmers and Members Only jackets reigned supreme. An ’80s costume contest (with a $1,000 prize) is planned. Oh, and did we mention decades-past pop icon Tiffany is taking the stage? We at Weekly think that’s, uh, totally awesome! October 1, doors at 10:30 p.m., $20, locals free before 12:30 a.m.
Steve Angello at Wet Republic The house DJ and producer (one-third of DJ trio Swedish House Mafia) helped kick off Wet Republic’s summer season when he brought his infamous Size Matters party to the MGM ultra pool. It seems fitting then that he returns Sunday to spin at the venue’s season finale. October 2, doors at 11 a.m., $50 men, $20 women.
Vegas Prom at Club Nikki That’s right—the opportunity to relive the high school ritual and actually get it right! By now, you don’t have a curfew, high school politics are long gone and there’s no need to spike a punch bowl. Live music by Boogie Knights and a Best Disco Outfit contest complete the nostalgic celebration. October 5, 8 p.m., $40 men, $20 women.
