Undies for a cause

Socks and underwear, the gifts we all dreaded getting as kids. But going without new ones would be a much worse scenario. That’s why Caridad and Nacho Daddy have partnered up for Undie Sunday, a sock and underwear drive benefiting Catholic Charities, the Shade Tree and Salvation Army. The first of its kind in Southern Nevada, the April 12 event starts at 3 p.m. and will feature drink specials, with 10 percent of proceeds going to charity. So get to giving at Nacho Daddy’s Downtown location Sunday by raising a glass—so much more fun than unwrapping a box of tube socks. —Molly O’Donnell

Viral culture

There’s no better way to get the skinny on the Smith Center’s Broadway season than by watching Myron Martin and Seth Rudetsky discuss it with juicy, enchanting enthusiasm. Taped in Reynolds Hall, the video of “Seth’s Big Fat Broadway” sits on the Smith Center’s new blog, joining other tidbits including the Broadway season selection process and Las Vegas Philharmonic’s Donato Cabrera explaining symphony etymology. As Rudetsky would say, “That’s a brava!” —Kristen Peterson

A new library is in the works for East Las Vegas in a neighborhood that has never before had a branch. Approved by the library district on April 1, the deal will bring a new library to 28th Street at either Sunrise Avenue or Bonanza Road. Plans are still being finalized, but Las Vegas City Councilman Bob Coffin says it could open in a couple of years: “It will not be a cheap library; it will be a world-class library.” —Kristy Totten
