Whole lotta Zep: Fathom’s Classic Music Series event is the closest you’ll get to a reunion … for now.

SEE

Led Zeppelin While there’s still no dice on an official regrouping, the second Classic Music Series installment by Fathom Events centers on archival concert footage from the British rock behemoth—a no-brainer given the popularity of Fathom’s 2012 cineplex version of the quartet’s one-off reunion show in 2007. March 30, 7:30 p.m., fathomevents.com for prices & locations.

Blinded: Awoken Local artist Allison Streater uses mixed-media collage to sort through emotions, from the desire for material possessions to the struggle against hardship. “This series followed me over several years through times of great self-development, introspection and severe pain,” she explains.​ Empathize at her reception, March 27 at 5:30 p.m. Through May 15, free, Winchester Cultural Center.

HEAR

Symphonic Spectacular The Las Vegas Philharmonic kicks it up with classical showpieces as part of its Pops Series. Leading off with Rossini’s overture to The Barber of Seville, the program also includes works by Tchaikovsky, Bernstein, Rimsky-Korsakov, Sibelius, Copland and Newman. March 28, 7:30 p.m., $26-$94, Smith Center’s Reynolds Hall.

EAT

Million Dollar Burger A classic deal at a classic restaurant awaits. Through April 12, Morton’s the Steakhouse offers its Million Dollar Burger, topped with foie gras, black truffle butter and braised short ribs on a brioche bun, with a glass of Stag’s Leap’s the Investor for $39, which is a lot less than a million dollars. 400 E. Flamingo Road.​

GO

Whiskey Revival Ready for two days of spirit sipping? If samplings of artisan whiskeys and other American craft boozes don’t quench your thirst, this Bar Back USA event also includes the Turn of the Century Whiskey Dinner at 6 p.m. Friday for $99, featuring guidance from Diageo master distiller Dr. Tom Turner. March 27, 7-11 p.m. & March 28, 2-6 p.m., $49-$79, Golden Nugget, goldennugget.com/lasvegas/whiskeyfest.asp.
