  • Comedy: Chelsea Handler at Mirage Theatre

    Thank goodness for Chelsea Handler, who broke us out of our pandemic doldrums with her HBO Max special, Evolution, last October. Her recently launched advice podcast, Dear Chelsea, has been another bright spot at a time when we could all use more heart-to-heart. And now she’s hitting the road for a 40-city tour to spread her gospel of unvarnished truth, dubbed #VaccinatedAndHorny. July 10, 10:30 p.m., $70-$140. –Genevie Durano

  • Cosplay: Night of the Black Widow at Millennium Fandom Bar

    Disney+ spoiled Marvel fans this past year with WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Loki. But it’s about time we saw a hero on the big screen. On July 9, Black Widow debuts in theaters, and Downtown’s Millennium Fandom Bar will celebrate with a femme fatale party. Don your best Natasha Romanoff costume for an evening honoring the skillfully trained assassin and Avenger. No cosplay will feel too understated or too over the top, so

    go with what’s comfortable. July 9, 8 p.m., no cover, fandombar.com. –Amber Sampson

  • Party: Disclosure at Ayu Dayclub

    Everything about this pool party screams out shiny and new: the host property (Resorts World), the venue (Ayu Dayclub), the event (reoccurring bash Moonbeam, debuting here) and the headliner (U.K. garage duo Disclosure, making the first of two scheduled Ayu appearances this year). Brothers Guy and Howard Lawrence splashed onto the dance scene with 2013 hit “Latch,” and they’ve been a force ever since, sending all three of their albums into the U.S. Electronic chart’s Top 3. It’s a safe bet their DJ set will feature something new—or new-to-you—too. July 11, 3 p.m., $100+. –Spencer Patterson

  • Geek Out: Cineloggia's Grand Opening Extravaganza

    Movie props and memorabilia museum Cineloggia opened quietly during last year’s lockdown, but on July 10, it’ll be fully ready to rock and shock. The featured guest will be Ed Gale, the actor who provided the physical performances for Chucky in the first two Child’s Play movies and the title character in Lucasfilm’s 1986 Howard the Duck. Cineloggia will also introduce new exhibits, which, considering the museum’s already-formidable collection of sci-fi and horror props, is reason enough to show up. July 10,

    9 a.m.-6 p.m. (Gale arrives at noon), $20. 900 Karen Ave. –Geoff Carter

  • Concert: Garth Brooks at Allegiant Stadium

    Garth Brooks has already performed some of the most celebrated concerts in Las Vegas history, specifically his Wynn residency from 2009 until 2014. So we don’t need to remind you that his postponed show at Allegiant Stadium, likely to be the first capacity event at the 65,000-seat megavenue, could go down as one of the biggest Vegas concerts ever. It initially sold out in 75 minutes, but there were $80ish upper-bowl seats available at press time. July 10, 7 p.m. –Brock Radke

  • Exhibit: Rob Benson: Neon Black 2 at The Herbert

    After a personal experience with police brutality in Las Vegas, retired basketball player Rod Benson decided to express his pain through art. Several years later, the San Diego native is back in Las Vegas with a solo art show Downtown. Titled Neon Black 2, it features vibrant portraits celebrating black hair. “Few things are a signal of the Black experience more than our hair is,” Benson says in a press statement. “We love it. We hate it. We try to make it work in white spaces. We tie our identity to it.” Through July 17, noon-6 p.m., free, 801 S. Main St. #130. –C. Moon Reed
