See

The Godfather cHere’s an offer you can’t refuse: See this classic gangster epic on the giant XD screen at the Century South Point, in a restored edition to celebrate the film’s 40th anniversary. March 1; 2 & 7 p.m.; $10-$13.

Smash Despite what you’ve heard, it’s not a Marilyn Monroe musical; it’s a show about writing a Marilyn Monroe musical. A good show, at that. Mondays, 10 p.m., NBC.

The Angry Video Game Nerd James Rolfe revisits the old home consoles—and some of the worst titles ever—in a funny, nostalgic, foul-mouthed trip down 8-bit lane. Shaq Fu? Oh, the horror. On YouTube.

Hear

Mickey Hart Band He drummed for the Grateful Dead from the ’60s until the end and co-wrote a little song called “Fire on the Mountain.” How’s that for jam-band credentials? March 3, 8:30 p.m., $25-$29, Hard Rock Cafe (Strip).

Go

Seven Guitars Nevada Conservatory Theatre tackles August Wilson’s seriocomic play about the black experience in Pittsburgh in the 1940s. Get ready to have thoughts sufficiently provoked. March 2-10, times vary, $10-$30, Judy Bayley Theatre.

Cheer

C'mon, show support for your Rebels - Time's a-wastin'.

UNLV basketball vs. Wyoming The final regular season home game, which means senior night for Oscar Bellfield, Brice Massamba, Chace Stanback and Kendall Wallace. Wish them goodbye—and good luck in the postseason. March 3, 7 p.m., $23-$80, Thomas & Mack.

UNLV baseball vs. Reno Last year, the Rebels won 33 games in Tim Chambers’ first year as head coach. Watch them warm up for the Mountain West with this three-game showdown against the rival Wolfpack. March 2-4, times vary, $8, Earl E. Wilson Stadium.

Eat & Drink

Sam Adams Beer Dinner Any time you see onion rings in a salad, you know the booze pairing’s got to be beer. And dessert? Chocolate Cherry Bock. Mmm. March 2, 6 p.m., $55, Lagasse’s Stadium at Palazzo, 607-2665 for reservations.

Buy

Wild Watusi Mug Forget tumblers, highballs and flutes. You should drink your milk (and everything else) out of a bright orange tiki mug. Frankie’s newest vessel goes on sale Friday, with artist The Pizz signing the mugs from 8 p.m. to midnight. March 2-3, $20, Frankie’s Tiki Room.
