Miss March Calendar Model Search at Playboy Club Hey, ladies. Think you’ve got the Playboy look?

Try to say “in like a lion, out like a lamb” with your eyes. February 24, 10 p.m., $20.
High Rollers Weekend 2011 at Beauty Bar Forget card sharks and casino whales; the high rollers flocking to Beauty Bar Friday night will be arriving on scooters as part of the High Rollers scooter convention. The back alley will be blocked off for the parking and, perhaps more importantly, ogling of ultra-fine wheels. LA ska band Rude Boys Outta Jail play. February 25, 10 p.m., free.
Markus Schulz at Marquee At age 13, the German-born Schulz had a dance-music epiphany, courtesy of the burgeoning breakdance scene. Years later, he’s emerged as one of the top international DJs and producers, and just last year Schulz released a compilation album titled Las Vegas ’10 as part of his city albums series. On Friday he brings his considerable skills to Marquee’s decked-out DJ booth. Opening set by Jordan Stevens. February 25, 10 p.m., $30, residents with California or Arizona ID and printed promo flier free before 11 p.m.
Fergie Footwear Gifting Suite at Blush Diamonds are nice, but great heels are really a girl’s best friend. Get Fergalicious as Blush doles out the latest styles from The Black Eyed Peas front woman’s collection (while supplies last). February 25, 10 p.m., $30, ladies free.
Rock ’n Roll Wine with Jared Lee at Rok Vegas Take 30 wines, pair them with an upcoming singer/songwriter and top it off with a Strip-side venue with heated patio and you’ve got a rocking wine tasting that easily lives up to its name. Or you could just call it one helluva party. February 26, 7-10 p.m., $35 in advance, $40 at the door.
Darren Criss’ Birthday at Lavo The smooth-singing Criss may play a warbling teen on Glee, but he’s been old enough to party in Vegas for a few years now. On Saturday, Criss celebrates his big 2-4 at Lavo, extending the Glee kids’ efforts at Strip domination. Is it too early for a Jersey Shore vs. Glee nightclub throwdown? February 26, 10 p.m., $20 ladies, $30 men.
Bob Sinclar at the Bank Vegas, hold on. The French DJ might not have won the Best Reggae Grammy for 2010’s Made in Jamaica, but it’s still irie. Get an earful of his island tunes on the dance floor—just make sure to leave the flip-flops home. February 27, 10:30 p.m., $30.
