An (almost) unsolved mystery from Sunday night at Vanity
Tue, Jul 12, 2011 (5:44 p.m.)
I know these two. But from where? I asked myself that question a dozen times, but couldn’t come up with an answer. I was at Vanity for Las Vegas Weekly’s “Weekly Fling,” but I couldn’t even chat with my coworkers. I couldn’t focus on anything—not until I solved the mystery.
Do they work at XS? Are they famous? Have I seen them in that Hot Chicks With Douchebags book?
I met Michael Johns from Hypnosis Unleashed, and I danced to Rihanna (not with Michael), but my mind wasn’t in it. I was going through the motions. Where the hell do I know those two from?!
At 2:00 a.m. I figured it out: They’re the hot couple from the gym! Of course, by then, it was too late to have any fun. On the plus side, next time I see them, I’m not going to let it consume my entire night.
Arguably one the coolest joints in town, the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino houses some of Vegas' best entertainment, restaurants and nightlife.
At Hard Rock, it's all about the music. From the light fixtures made out of drum cymbals and guitar shaped door handles to stage costumes and tools of the trade of legendary musicians displayed on the walls, the hotel screams rock and roll. The Hard Rock's Joint has hosted some the biggest names in music — from The Who to Bob Dylan to hometown heroes, The Killers.Aside from the music venues, the pool at the Hard Rock is one of its biggest attractions. Spread out over 4.7 acres, the pool area features swim-up blackjack, a bar and grill, private cabanas, a bevy of secluded nooks, a waterfall and an extensive live music venue with a dance floor. During the summer, the pool transforms into the Rehab club on Sunday afternoons.
The resident nightclub Body English fuses European elegance with a rock star bachelor pad and it often a hot spot for visiting celebs and popular DJs. Vintage rock memorabilia lines the walls at Wasted Space, Hard Rock's anti-club.
Restaurants at Hard Rock are just as hip as the rest of the casino. Pink Taco serves up Mexican dishes, as well as a Central American and Caribbean menu. Nobu, one of five worldwide Japanese-specialty restaurants from famed Nobu Matsuhisa, satisfies a different taste. For round-the-clock cuisine, Mr. Lucky's 24/7, is sure to ease your appetite even after a Vegas-all-nighter.
