  • Gelato Festa at Eataly

  • Morgan Page at Daylight

    Earlier this year, the Grammy-nominated DJ released the track “Gone My Way,” fusing future house with progressive house and electro elements, and Page has spent the past year remixing the likes of Alessia Cara, Clean Bandit and Ava Max. He’s reportedly working on a slew of new singles— perhaps he’ll tease one at the Mandalay Bay pool club. July 27, 11 a.m., $20-$30. –Leslie Ventura

  • WNBA All-Star Game at Mandalay Bay Events Center

    Another landmark Las Vegas sports moment arrives this weekend when the House hosts the WNBA’s annual all-star weekend. Aces faves A’ja Wilson, Liz Cambage and Kayla McBride will start in the big game on Saturday, and Cambage DJs at the Mandalay Bay Beach pre-party Friday night, with Snoop Dogg and Iggy Azalea headlining. July 27, 12:30 p.m., $30-$62. –Brock Radke

  • Drag Queen Cuisine at House of Blues

    Longtime Las Vegas performers Toni James and Derrick Barry star in this new, original show in the House of Blues’ B Side space—July 27 and August 3 and 10—with the aim of bringing an evening drag production back to the Strip on a consistent basis.

    “Drag has come so far in the past 15 years since I moved here, when La Cage was all there was,” says Barry, best known for performing as Britney Spears and appearing on America’s Got Talent and RuPaul’s Drag Race. “It’s become so mainstream. To be back on the Strip on a Saturday night at the House of Blues, it feels like everything is coming together so perfectly.”

    Drag brunches have been popping up lately, but this is a drag dinner show with a cast of six performers including beloved burlesque act Kalani Kokonuts. “She’s incredible. It’s amazing to see someone do burlesque at that level, and it’s a totally different feel from drag,” Barry says. “She’s got her own niche, and she’s really great at it.” July 27-August 10, 7:30 p.m., $35-$65. –Brock Radke

  • Okeeba Jubalo at Classic Jewel

    The latest artist-in-residence to live and work at Downtown’s Juhl is Atlanta painter, poet and community leader Okeeba Jubalo. He’ll be in residence June 29 through August 6, making art in a studio that’s visible from the street. On July 30, Jubalo will host an evening of visual art and spoken world. July 30, 6-9 p.m., free. –C. Moon Reed

  • Chicago at Spring Mountain Ranch State Park

    Take all that jazz outdoors with Super Summer Theatre’s production of the Broadway musical that gave us Roxie Hart, Velma Kelly and all the merry murderesses kicking up the Bob Fosse razzle-dazzle. July 31-August 17, 6 p.m., $15. –Genevie Durano
