Superhero Pub Crawl at Insert Coin(s) Calling all comic book geeks! You’ve always dreamed of partying with Batman, Green Lantern and the entire X-Men crew (okay, mostly just Mystique), and this Saturday that fantasy gets real. Throw on that cape, grab your mask and head to Fremont East’s videobar/gamelounge to partake in this “super” bar adventure, featuring a number of Downtown hangouts. June 11, 8 p.m., free.
Holly Madison Book Party at Gallery First a role in one of the Strip’s hottest shows, then a locally based reality show about her life and now the former Girls Next Door star is at it again.

June 11, doors at 10 p.m., $30 men, $20 women.
Jungle Beats at Krave After two insanely popular Moulin Rouge-themed nights and this winter’s Snow Ball, it’s clear that the Strip-side gay club does themed parties right. This Saturday, Krave jungle-fies its dancefloor with decorations, Tarzan go-go dancers, vine-swinging aerialists and a sexy ape man! June 11, doors at 10:30 p.m., $20, no cover for locals before 12:30 a.m.
Clinton Sparks’ Awesome Party at Moon With the E! music correspondent in the house, there’s no doubt an “Awesome Party” is going down at Moon this weekend. Those at the event’s launch last month saw Sparks perform live with his new band for the very first time, and there’s no telling what tricks the artist/DJ/producer has up his sleeve this time. June 11, doors at 11 p.m., $40, local ladies free, includes Playboy Club entry.
Party Dolls and Pin-Ups at Bare Channel your inner Bettie Page and sip on bubbly all afternoon by the pool, as ladies dressed like pin-up girls receive complimentary champagne this Monday during the pool lounge’s industry day. If you don’t manage to show up looking all retro-sultry, an on-site stylist can provide an up-do free of charge. June 13, doors at 11 a.m., $20 men, $10 women, locals free.
Swimwear Fashion Show at Blue Martini Two of our favorite “inis” merge this Wednesday at this special edition of the Town Square lounge’s ladies night.

June 15, 4 p.m., free entry.
