Simon Says Fight MSA, set for February 27 at the Keep Memory Alive Event Center, is an all-star food and music fest and fundraiser to support awareness of multiple system atrophy. Chefs including Kim Canteenwalla, Wylie DuFresne, Michael Mina, Daniel Boulud, Jean-Georges Vongerichten, Rick Moonen and Charlie Palmer will team up for a high-energy dine-around in the spirit of chef Kerry Simon, who is battling the mysterious disease. Alice Cooper, Sammy Hagar, Vince Neil and Slash will join the Sin City Sinners band to provide the sounds. Tickets start at $500 and are available at keepmemoryalive.org.

Simon’s Palms Place restaurant is partnering with Sky Combat Ace to provide three truly over-the-top experiences. For $799, couples get a limo to SCA’s hangar for a personal flight overlooking the Strip before touching ground again for dinner at Simon. More expensive packages let you take the controls of the plane or stay overnight in Phil Maloof’s 59th floor condo at Palms Place. For info, visit skycombatace.com/packages or call 888-494-5850.

Sambalatte recently opened its second Las Vegas store at 6555 S. Jones Blvd., and one of the city’s most popular home-grown coffee spots is not done growing. It will also add a Strip location in the spring as part of the renovations at the Monte Carlo.

Red Rock Resort’s T-bones Chophouse is hosting a four-course dinner paired with craft beers from Lagunitas, Angry Orchard, Rogue and Stone brewing companies on February 27. The price is $85, and reservations can be made by calling 797-7517.
