Mmmm… this weekend is delicious

Look, but don’t taste.

Don’t eat that. It looks delicious, but it isn’t real and she’ll probably be a bit surprised.

Thank you, Playboy Mansion, for sharing the Kandy Vegas party with Sin City for the first time.

The “delicious fantasy weekend” spans three days-worth of events at the Palms Pool & Bungalows, Rain and Moon nightclubs with the main event, the Lingerie Ball, occurring poolside Saturday night. Snoop Dogg headlines while underpants-clad ladies prance around the outdoor venue.

The pool area will be transformed into a giant ultra-lounge as imagined through the eyes of Willy Wonka – psychedelic décor, barely dressed performers, oversized candy props and Kandy islands floating in the pool. Ladies will be adorned and painted in candy-themed sexiness while gents must be dressed in all white. Snoop, Manufactured Superstars and guest DJs will all provide the tunes. And if the candy theme starts to put you into a diabetic coma, you can always check out the adjacent Rain nightclub for a live show by Rabbit in the Moon.

Party in your panties!

It isn’t all pointless debauchery this weekend, though. N9NE Group and the Palms have teamed up with the Karma Foundation for the extravagant party, and a portion of the proceeds from the weekend’s festivities will be donated to Reading for Kids to inspire literacy in underprivileged children. Besides, if kids can’t read, how can they check out the fantastic articles in Playboy, right?

Since Kandy Vegas is a whole weekend of events, Ditch Fridays is getting in on the theme with Kandy Circus Friday at noon. Expect to see live burlesque, surprise performances and circus games in the sun. Friday night at Rain, DJ AM will be joined by his pal Travis Barker, fresh off the stage from the first night of Blink 182’s reunion tour, for the Kandy Vegas welcome party.

Before Saturday’s Lingerie Ball, the 2nd Annual Miss Sunset Tan Competition takes place at the pool, and the winner will host the final pool party of Kandy Vegas on Sunday and be awarded more than $100,000 in cash and prizes.


Wrapping up the kandy-coated madness, producer Junkie XL performs live at Moon while the new Miss Sunset Tan hosts at both Playboy Club and Moon and ladies sip on free champagne from 10:30 to 11:30 p.m.

Hope you’ve got a sweet tooth this weekend.
