If you’re the kind of person who reads our Cocktail of the Week column and thinks it all sounds a little too complicated, this event’s for you. On December 6, Tao hosts Milagro Mixologia, a four-course tequila and tasting dinner ($75) with dishes like hamachi “pastrami” and Chinese five-spice roasted duck matched with Milagro cocktails courtesy of brand ambassador Gaston Martinez. But this dinner is more than sipping and sampling; it’s an interactive night out where you’ll learn to re-create the signature cocktails at home. So the next time a Milagro drink graces these pages, you can smile and say, “Yeah, I got that.” Reserve your seat at taolasvegas.com.
And joining Body English and Light is the latest news of a Vegas club revival: Empire Ballroom is coming back from the dead. Or rather, the venue is being reincarnated. As Robin Leach reported last week, the one-time afterhours spot has been converted into the 19,000-square-foot Boulevard Theater for a cool pricetag of $10 million. Currently playing the venue is musical magician Tommy Wind (shows at 5 and 7 p.m. nightly) and Barbra and Frank: The Concert That Never Was (3 p.m. daily), with more bookings expected soon.
