Neon Boneyard Open House
Dec. 18, 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., $5
McWilliams Ave. and Las Vegas Blvd., 387-6366

Now’s the time to see what the Neon Museum has been doing for the past several months while shifting old bones around behind its fences. The organization will hold an open house on December 18, when visitors can walk through the rearranged aisles of large and stylish signs rescued from hotel implosions, old businesses and remodeling efforts. The open house lets guests examine the monumental collection of vintage neon and bulbs that, for now, can only be seen on scheduled tours. Guests can even bring their cameras, but for snapshots only. Don’t forget to check out the adjacent Boneyard Park, a recently completed throwback to mid-century Las Vegas with boomerang-shaped benches, decorative cinderblock walls and a folded-plate roof serving as a canopy over atomic-style tables and chairs.
