McFadden’s Grand Opening Experience St. Paddy’s every day starting Thursday, when party-hearty watering hole McFadden’s (formerly at the Rio) sets up shop again at Town Square. Might as well order a Guinness ... or four. July 18, 8 p.m., free entry.
Rebel Bingo at The Act After installments at LVH and the Cosmopolitan’s Boulevard Pool, the self-proclaimed “black sheep of the bingo family” lands at the Venetian’s theatrical nightclub. “Don’t bring grandma” says it all, so leave the daubers at home and get pumped for a crazy night of bingo (no, really), complete with bizarre prizes. July 18, doors at 10:30 p.m., $30 men, $20 women, locals free.
Kelis at Palms Pool Her “Milkshake” brought all the boys to the yard back in 2003, and we’re guessing it’ll still entice you to hit the Palms this weekend. Check out lead single “Jerk Ribs” off her upcoming album before catching her tunes (and that infamous milkshake) live at the off-Strip hotel’s Ditch Friday bash. July 19, noon, $25 men, $20 women.
Krewella at Light & Daylight The EDM trio has been climbing the charts with poppy dance hit “Alive” and just-released electro awesomeness “Live for the Night.” Do just that this weekend when Krewella takes the tables during its Mandalay Bay weekend doubleheader. Okay, you can live for the day, too. Light: July 19, doors at 10 p.m., $75 men, $30 women; Daylight: July 20, doors at 11 a.m., $50 men, $20 women.
The Cataracs at 1 Oak Despite the name, this electro-hop group is a solo act these days. Regardless, we’re pretty stoked Niles Hollowell-Dhar (okay, maybe the Cataracs does sound better) is bringing the noise to the Mirage nightclub Friday. Here’s hoping recent Martin Solveig collabo “Hey Now” makes it into the setlist! July 19, doors at 10:30 p.m., $40 men, $30 women.
World’s Largest Bachelorette Party at Tao, Tao Beach & Lavo Tao Group’s annual bash for brides-to-be is back!

July 19-21, times vary, $99 WLBP wristband (includes cover), separate covers vary by venue and date, see club grid for details.
Little Black Dress Party at Blue Martini We know you have an LBD (or five) in your closet, ladies! The Town Square watering hole’s annual LBD bash comes complete with drink specials for ladies in dress code, raffles with luxury prizes and live entertainment. Plus, raffle proceeds benefit Opportunity Village, so you’ll feel extra good when you win that Platinum Hotel staycation. July 20, 7 p.m., $20 men ($10 local men) after 11 p.m.
Mad Decent Block Party at XS, Tryst, Surrender & Encore Beach Club Diplo brings a few of the artists signed to his Mad Decent record label to town this weekend for a cross-property takeover.
