After featuring Donald Glaude at Tommy Wind Theater It’s been awhile since we’ve seen the dreadlocks of funky/electro house icon Donald Glaude fly wildly in a Vegas DJ booth. But we’ll make our reacquaintance this week, when the Pacific Northwest sparkplug and former Ice Las Vegas resident headlines the newest Strip afterhours party, which commemorates both the two-year anniversary bash for local event producer Epyk Entertainment and After’s Friday night debut. March 14, 3 a.m., $20, locals and women free.

GBDC Finale at Ghostbar We say farewell to the beloved daytime debauch-fest Saturday afternoon, and GBDC is going out with a bang—to the piñata, that is. The liquid brunch goes ’90s for the final installment of its season, with clubgoers in retro wear scoring comp admission. Break out your flannel and Mossimo threads! March 15, doors at 1 p.m., $20 men, $10 women, local ladies & people in ’90s attire free, local men free until 2 p.m.

XIV Sessions: Game World at Hyde Have a killer costume of a video game character that you can’t stand to mothball until Halloween? Hyde Bellagio has planned a Wreck-It Ralph-style version of its monthly XIV Sessions bash, encouraging revelers to dress up as Link, Kitana, Dr. Robotnik, Samus Aran or—our pick—the evil fried egg from Burgertime. Remember, gamers: This one starts before sunset. March 16, 6 p.m., $50 men, $40 women.

St. Patrick’s Day Weekend at O’Sheas We shed a few tears into our green beers last year, as the center-Strip staple was still under construction with the rest of Caesars’ ambitious Linq project. Thankfully, Lucky the Leprechaun and crew are back in 2014 with O’Sheas’ signature revelry. Sip on green beers ($3), shoot some Irish Car Bombs ($10) and play a round of beer pong with a leprechaun (should you be so lucky). March 15-17, times vary, free.

Pubstep at E-String Grill & Poker Bar While every other bar in town exhausts House of Pain and Dropkick Murphy chestnuts, E-String in Henderson will provide a local bass-music alternative, and those 18 and over are welcome to join the party. This resurrected green-themed get-down features Japanese dubstep/drum ’n’ bass producer/DJ Ajapai as headliner, with support from local faves like Michael Toast and Byra Tanks. March 17, 9 p.m., $10.

St. Patrick’s Day at McMullan’s Looking for a more traditional way to celebrate the Emerald Isle’s patron saint? The beginnings of Brian McMullan’s west-side pub lie in Glenarm, Ireland, where his family first started slinging brews in 1908. That history now adorns the walls of the authentic pub, which also boasts a menu of traditional Irish bites and an almost-unrivaled Irish whiskey list. The St. Paddy’s craic starts on Saturday, but McMullan’s expands the party to its patio on Monday with live music and Irish entertainment all throughout. March 15-17, times vary, $20 Monday after 2 p.m.

Ratchet Olympics at Beauty Bar With events like the Walk of Shame Obstacle Course, a twerk throwdown and a no-hands drinking game, Tuesday night at the Fremont East watering hole will be ... interesting, to say the least. The “ratchet” edition of Nickel F*cking Beer Night also features a live performance by Lil Debbie and beats by Byra Tanks and others. March 18, doors at 9 p.m., $10.

Denitia and Sene at Insert Coin(s) Don’t say we get slept on when it comes to the up-and-comers of the music world. The Fremont East barcade gives us another special event this week with the booking of buzzing Brooklyn electro-soul duo Denitia and Sene, the former a singer-songwriter and the latter a producer/emcee. And speaking of rising stars, our own Sabriel opens, with DJ 88 behind the decks. March 19, 8 p.m., free.
