In a town like Las Vegas, we often need a day of R&R to recover from all the R&R endured over the weekend.
While the first set of Rs stands for “rest and relaxation,” the second pair includes one R that could stand for a range of things: “rum,” “rye,” “Riesling,” “[vodka] Red Bull” or “Rolling Rock,” for example.
The final “R,” however, definitely stands for Rehab.
Though Snoop Dogg helped reopen the city’s most notorious adults-only pool party over a month ago, on April 19, the Hard Rock Hotel recently announced that they’re bringing back their post-Rehab recovery session, “Relax,” for another year, too.
Rather than an afternoon of full-blown debauchery, Relax replaces Rehab’s intense party-like-a-rock-star-on-spring-break-in-Cancun mentality with a more laidback attitude featuring a range of games (raft races, tug-of-war, twister) and prizes, and no shortage of frosty beverages.
The weekly event, which kicks off its season today at noon and continues until 6 p.m., is geared toward the city’s hardworking service industry workers.
The first Relax-ing afternoon will feature DJs Ryan Wellman and Jack LaFleur scheduled to set the soundtrack.
The party is free for all locals (with valid ID) and all ladies, too, but out of town guys are subject to a $20 cover charge.
