MDW? More like FPW for the GTL set. It’s a Fist Pumping Weekend as Jersey Shore madness spreads all over Vegas like the mysteries in a seaside hot tub. But if seeing Ronnie at Jet on Friday night (May 28), or DJ Pauly D during the Love Festival at the Palms on Sunday (May 30) isn’t Shoretastic enough, now it’s your turn to get in front of the cameras and show off those abs. That’s right, Jersey Shore wants YOU. The MTV show will hold a casting call at Bare Pool at the Mirage Sunday (May 30), starting at 11 a.m. Who knows? Maybe you’ll be lucky enough to be the next sucker-punch seen ’round the world.

Jet, the self-proclaimed ultimate nightclub experience, is a music junkie’s dream-come-true, featuring multiple levels and three different rooms, each with a distinctive variety of music. The sunken dance floor and various stages where patrons can join sexy dancers make Jet the prime place to show off your stuff or sit back and people-watch. A true sensory experience, Jet’s ceiling is embedded with video screens that display graphics that change with the beat of the music. The long main bar spanning the back of the club is a great place to chat and take a breather from the bustling dance floor. DJs on the large main floor spin hip-hop while smaller side rooms are dedicated to house and rock. Whatever your musical taste, Jet can accommodate.
