Matinee madness: The gay circuit-party festival returns

According to the Matinee party schedule, gay men don’t sleep, because there really doesn’t seem to be a time during Memorial Day Weekend when there isn’t a Matinee bash happening. From Friday night until Monday evening, the creators of this circuit-party festival make sure its patrons are covered, from the prime-time-to-dawn ragers at Share, to the daytime frolicking at the Rumor pool, to the nighttime dance-offs scheduled at Vanity and Rain (both reopened for Matinee). And, for the main event: WaterPark! isn’t just the name of the big Saturday evening party, it’s the actual venue—as in Cowabunga Bay, which will likely go down in history as having hosted the gayest, wildest party in Henderson’s history. Scheduled DJ talent includes LGBT nightlife faves such as Hector Fonseca, DJ Grind and Taito Tikaro. May 22-25. For schedule & pricing, visit matineevegas.com.
