Nightlife news & notes: Reality shows, Godskitchen goes, beer for pong flows

Marklen Kennedy

Who doesn’t have a reality show these days? Last week we mentioned N9NE Group’s Jason “JRoc” Craig will be all up in your flat-screen in the near future (full story here). But also coming to a small screen near you: a new Showtime series created and co-produced by former Tao Beach marketing director Marklen Kennedy. He tells the Weekly he’s working with Richard Grieco on the Entourage-style show—working title: The Guys—which is filming at Vegas nightclubs, bars, malls, golf courses and … the Gun Store? “It’s a thrill ride,” Kennedy says. “It’s definitely going to be funny and talked about.” He’s also hoping the series inspires an action figure version of himself. “That’s my whole goal in life,” he jokes. “I want a cape.”

You probably heard the new cast of the Real World is filming in town, running around the Hard Rock Hotel. One party they won’t be visiting there anymore: Godskitchen Thursdays at Vanity. A staple in Angel Management Group’s party arsenal, the electronic dance music event held its last night at the club on November 11. HRH confirmed Vanity’s new hours: Friday-Sunday, 10 p.m.-4 a.m. At press time, a rep for AMG could not confirm whether Godskitchen will move to a different venue in the near future.

$50,000 For Beer Pong

You know what might make a good reality show? Beer Pong. The World Series of Beer Pong returns to Vegas January 1-5 at the Flamingo. Participating teams have a chance at a $50,000 grand prize. Packages start at $500, which includes a four-night stay at the hotel plus entry to the WSOBP. Locals will receive a $150 discount by using promo code VEGASLOCAL.
