As I suspected, despite our hard times, Las Vegas has come up with even more ways to celebrate Howl-O-Ween this year. So many, that for those of you coming in to town for this fright-filled weekend, I thought I had probably warn you: sleep now, while you can!
I mentioned the Beaux Arts Ball on Thursday 10/30 at Studio 54 already, but now can tell you that it will not only feature America’s Best Dance Crew (MTV) Super Cr3w, but also perfomers from American Superstars, Chippendales, Crazy Horse Paris, Fantasy, Folies Bergere, Jubilee, Le Reve, O, the Rio’s Show In The Sky and Zumanity. Wow! Also that night, Tryst (Wynn) will have a comic-book heroes & villains party, and Hawaiian Tropic Zone (Planet Hollywood) will be giving away a free “Booob Job” to the winner of its tricks-or-treats contest.
On Halloween (Friday 10/31), Korn’s Jonathan Davis performs at LAX (Luxor), while coincidentally, his former band mate Rob Patterson performs down the strip at ROK Vegas (New York New York), where Carmen Elektra — his fiancée — hosts. … Wilmer Valderrama (remember him from when he actually acted and didn’t just party?) hosts a Veuve Cliquot "Yelloween" At PURE (Caesars Palace)…the cast of Phantom hosts a masquerade ball at Lavo (Palazzo). … Randy Gerber’s sexy Cherry club (Red Rock resort) hosts a Halloween Fun House with costume prizes and — more importantly — $100 bottle service (if you don’t know what a deal that is — trust me). … And if Tera Patrick isn’t your taste in adult entertainers, Jesse Jane hosts TheDirty.com‘s party at Prive (Planet Hollywood)
Also that spook-tacular evening, Criss Angel performs the official opening night of his long-awaited Cirque du Soleil show Believe, If you’re lucky enough to be among the invited, well, boo-ray for you!
Last but ab-so-lutely not least, DJ Paul Oakenfold returns to his amazing Perfecto residency at Rain (Palms resort) Saturday night 11./1. Only a few weeks in, and this multimedia, multi-performance extravaganza has established itself as the only party that matters.
Of course, check my previous blog post for many more Vegas Halloween tips. Have a frighteningly good time this weekend!
Insider tip: Also over the weekend, Amy Smart hosts a "Get Out The Vote" party Saturday and Nelly celebrates his birthday, both at the Palazzo resort’s Lavo (the club too intimate for the celebs to hide)
