GET OUT If Dino’s is a scene unto itself inside, imagine what the longtime Downtown bar will look like when it opens its brand new front patio this weekend. “I’ve always wanted to do it,” owner Kristin Bartolo says. “Our business has increased so much … it’ll allow for people to go outside and have more room for people inside.” Seating will be installed before it opens, while palm trees and misters are forthcoming—as is a window with easy access to the indoor bar and a possible summer movie night. –Mike Prevatt

AUTO GEMS Wayne Newton soon won’t be the only Las Vegas legend with a collection of his cars on display—the Liberace Foundation’s new experience at the off-Strip Hollywood Cars Museum (5115 Dean Martin Drive) opens to the public April 8. Liberace’s Garage will feature rides from Mr. Showmanship’s stage shows (including his production at the Las Vegas Hilton), and photos and artifacts from the performer’s homes. –Mark Adams

PROTECT AND SWERVE Deputies in Las Vegas now have motorcycles to enter parks and trails to combat crime, maneuvering more easily through the crowds and landscapes. The electric- and battery-powered vehicles are part of a pilot program that takes on more than 200 miles of trail systems and could someday reach Downtown. For now, the Las Vegas Marshals program aims to protect against theft, underage drinking, shooting, graffiti and other crimes taking place in the open recreational spaces, in Hollywood action-film style. –Kristen Peterson
