Gung Hey Fat Choy: A Chinese New Year primer

February 8th, 2010

Outside of China, few places celebrate Chinese New Year as much as Las Vegas. Here's how (and why) to get in on the party.

  • What one Strip chef really thinks of Yelp reviews and the people who write them.

  • If you had to rank the top qualities of a successful chef, his cooking ability would be near the bottom.

  • A no-BS explanation of the different types of papaya salad and how to order and eat them like an expert.

  • The west side water park turns the H2O on this weekend.

  • From UNLVino’s 40th anniversary to a hotly contested fight night at MGM Grand Garden Arena — a rematch between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley — ’tis indeed a weekend to eat, drink and be merry in Las Vegas.

  • Residency lineup for upcoming party spot favors artists on the rise over expensive DJ superstars.

  • A big fan of the UNLV team who won the 1989-90 NCAA national championship, Brandon Flowers of The Killers wore Rebel red during a performance Saturday at Reunion Park at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

  • One guy has a Stone Cold Steve Austin shirt on. I believe in fashion terms that’s called “sad vintage."

  • The weekend ahead is packed with star power, from the Academy of Country Music’s five days of celebration starting tonight with Hunter Hayes to sports champions teeing up for a cause in the annual Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational at Shadow Creek.

  • Just months ahead of its Labor Day Weekend debut, the new north-Strip resort announces a 20,000-square-foot party venue.

  • The weekend ahead is laid back and locals-friendly, with a number of concerts, plays and even a chili cook-off to keep the whole family entertained. Here’s a look at our weekend best bets.

  • Kirn's new memoir focuses on the killer, as well as his own desire to be near him.

  • This month is Self-Injury Awareness Month, a grassroots event focused on bringing attention to self-harm and self-injury — commonly in the form of cutting — and combating stereotypes surrounding the condition.

  • The weekend ahead is one of signature Las Vegas entertainment, ranging from a revamped Strip classic to a new take on Cirque du Soleil for charity to community art for locals downtown. Here’s a look at our weekend best bets:

  • If you’re still struggling with the right way to pop the question — or with the right ring to choose — Las Vegas-based nonprofit the American Gem Society has got you covered with their Perfect Proposal Toolkit.

  • The Henderson waterpark opens May 24. Get your passes now!

  • St. Patrick’s Day Weekend is upon us with plenty of festivities and food and drink specials across the Strip. But if green isn’t your color — or you’re looking for something a little different — there’s still plenty else to keep you entertained. Here’s a look at our weekend best bets.

  • The Pinball Hall of Fame has a whole lot more than just the standard arcade game—Just take a spin on the "Relax-a-lator."

  • The new face of burlesque in Las Vegas is unpredictable, fun and downright sexy!

  • NCT went with a modern take on a classic tale to create a production for the ages.

  • Come for the zombie TV show, stay for the drinks, zombie swag and unabashedly nerdy karaoke.
