Totally ’80s Celebrity Look-a-Like Contest at Tao Still have that crimper from 1982? Channel your favorite ’80s star at Worship Thursday this week for a chance to win $10,000. Weekly writer Rick Lax will be sitting in the judge’s chair, so extra points for dressing like Brutus “the Barber” Beefcake. March 10, 10 p.m., $10 ladies, $20 men, local ladies free.
Rick Ross After Concert Party at Moon Sometimes truth is better than fiction. Last summer, Rick Ross sued Rick Ross—that would be Cali drug don Ricky “Freeway” Ross, who sued the “Teflon Don,” aka rapper Rick Ross, for allegedly stealing his name and likeness to create a thriving music career. Guess which Ross is performing at the Pearl and then partying at Moon this Thursday. Hint: He’s the biggest boss you’ve seen this far. March 10, 11 p.m., $23, free with concert ticket stub.
Snooki at LAX She’s back. The 4-foot-9 Shore thing has been working hard, showing up in unlikely places (like onstage at the 2010 CMT Awards) and ringing the bell at the New York Stock Exchange. While Vegas isn’t quite her native habitat, the Snookster’s so comfortable strutting LAX in her stilettos, it’s only a matter of time before she gets a key to the city. March 12, 10 p.m. $20 ladies, $30 men.
Perez Hilton’s Vegas or Bust Party at the Bank It’s been more than a decade since celeb-blogger Perez Hilton graduated from NYU, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t value a good mid-March vacation as much as the next guy. On Saturday, he hosts a Spring Break fiesta for college students and people who just want to party like them. Jäger bombs, anyone? March 12, 10:30 p.m., $30 women, $40 men, 21+.
Destination Spring Break at the Palms It’s 11 a.m.; do you know where your Red Bull vodka is? The Palms Pool and Bungalows hosts an epic, cover-free Spring Break party Saturday with music by local and Cali-based DJs and a photo shoot with live models throughout the day. Make it a party to regret all year long. March 12, 11 a.m., free.
Kaskade at Marquee The Marquee resident and Vegas regular returns for his monthly gig at the Cosmo nightspot. Will he play till 8 a.m.? You’ll just have to show up, wear comfy shoes and find out. March 12, 9:30 p.m., $40.
Jersey Shore at Chateau The Paris Las Vegas nightclub’s second weekend is all about somewhere a little closer to home: New Jersey. Chateau’s got a Shore doubleheader on the books for this weekend with the Situation hosting Friday and new cast member Deena Nicole helping Sammi Sweetheart celebrate her birthday Saturday. That isn’t new-club scent you’re getting; that’s spray tan. March 11 and 12, $30 men, $20 women, local ladies free.
