Final Fridays at The View While Las Vegans crowd the streets of the Arts District every First Friday, Palms wants you to bookend your month with cocktails and culture at this high-in-the-sky hangout. Artists will create works live, and hip-hop crew Rhyme N Rhythm provides the tunes. Did we mention happy hour runs from 8 to 11 p.m.? That’s half off your tab, party people. May 31, 8 p.m., free entry.
Bicycle Prom at Artifice No chaperones, no awkward date photos for the parentals, no Regina George—this is how prom should have been, right? DJ duo Totescity’s biannual bike bash comes complete with photo opportunities, giveaways and, of course, the crowning of prom king and queen. Start the party early by joining the group bike ride from UNLV’s student union (9 p.m.), and score free beer tokens for when you arrive. That’s way more fun than spiking the punch bowl. May 31, 10 p.m., $3 suggested donation to benefit World Bicycle Relief.

May 31, 10 p.m., $10 men, $5 women.
