Trust Us: Rebels hoops, Miley on the Strip and a Vegas(ish) ‘Iron Chef’

If the Rebels beat SDSU this week, it might make up for that nail-biting loss to Boise State.


Runnin’ Rebels vs. San Diego State UNLV’s up-and-down season took another tough turn last weekend, when an apparent buzzer-beater got waved off in a loss to Boise State. A Wednesday-night home win against the rival Aztecs, ranked 13th nationally, would take some of that sting away, and then some. March 5, 8 p.m., $25-$135, Thomas & Mack Center.


Miley Cyrus Let’s be real, the tongue and twerk antics are why you’ll go. Just remember to show up early for the super-solid openers: “I Love It” duo Icona Pop and on-the-rise synth-pop star Sky Ferreira. March 1, 7:30 p.m., $20-$94, MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Georgia on My Mind: Celebrating Ray Charles Paying homage to Ray and his incomparable sound takes a musical village, ranging from Grammy winners Take 6 and Kirk Whalum to local icon Clint Holmes and the Las Vegas Mass Choir, among others. February 28, 7:30 p.m., $29-$125, Smith Center’s Reynolds Hall.

St. Petersburg Philharmonic Haven’t had your fill of Russia quite yet? This renowned orchestra performs works by Rossini, Prokofiev and Rachmaninoff (Second Symphony) at the Smith Center. March 1, 7:30 p.m., $39-$150, Reynolds Hall.


A Harold Ramis film From Second City to Analyze This, Ramis, who died on Monday, left his mark on comedy in a way few ever have. Whether he wrote it (Animal House), directed it (Caddyshack) or starred in it (Ghostbusters), you really can’t go wrong. We’d recommend watching Groundhog Day … and then rewatching it.

Iron Chef America: Sosa vs. Flay Two Vegas(ish) chefs battle to see whose cuisine reigns supreme when challenger Angelo Sosa (of Poppy Den and Top Chef) takes on Iron Chef Bobby Flay (of Mesa Grill and Bobby’s Burger Palace). Eat up the action at home, or reserve a seat at Poppy Den’s viewing party. March 2, 9 p.m., Food Network; viewing party 8-10 p.m., 907-5227.


Donuts at MTO Cafe These spheres of fried dough bedazzled in powdered sugar and local honey are pure bliss, but you must sidecar those suckers with the apple rings, sweet battered fruit loops deep-fried and drenched in cinnamon-sugar icing. 500 S. Main St.
