Nightlife

Volts, right out of the blue!

Let the sunshine in.

Since everybody spends so much time worshiping the sun at Vegas pools, it’s high time our star gave us a little something in return. N9NE Group and the Palms agree, and they’ve found a way to use the sun’s energy for something more than the perfect tan. Unveiled during the property’s Earth Day celebrations, Las Vegas’ first solar-powered DJ booth is in place for this Friday’s 2009 inaugural Ditch Friday.

DEEP THOUGHTS

BY JACK COLTON
“Hangovers are like our body’s way of taxing us for what was probably a really good time, and—like the Internal Revenue Service—they have unlimited power to seize your day if you try to avoid them.”

As the DJ booth is a permanent structure, N9NE and the Palms are making a commitment to environmentalism that will last long after the excitement of Earth Day has died down. Joining in on the environmental cause, Palms Pool & Bungalows sponsor Miller Lite is even using completely biodegradable BIOflex vinyl banners for the promotion.

But what if—gasp—it’s cloudy?! The solar-powered DJ booth also has the ability to store energy and will continue working when it’s less than sunny. Now somebody just needs to come up with a dance-powered DJ booth to fuel all the post-sunset partying.
