UNLVino Three nights, three reasons to raise a glass. Whether you prefer champagne, sake or wines from around the world, this annual fundraiser for UNLV’s College of Hotel Administration offers an opportunity to sample something delicious—and support education. March 31-April 2, $50-$100, various locations, unlvino.com.
Country Crawl If awards shows are your thing, Sunday brings the Academy of Country Music’s annual who’s who at MGM Grand. Or you could dress down the same night at Mandalay Bay’s ACM Fan Jam headlined by Sugarland, or on Monday at MGM, for the Superstar Women of Country concert featuring Miranda Lambert, Martina McBride and more. Or hell, leave your wallet at home and hit Fremont Street’s free Friday and Saturday shows with Sara Evans and Ronnie Dunn onstage. April 1-4, various venues, times and prices.
Kevin Nealon He never broke as big as some of his Saturday Night Live contemporaries, but Nealon remains one of the funniest men around. Here’s hoping we see Mr. Subliminal. April 2-3, 7:30 p.m., $33-$55, Suncoast.
Burlesque at Beauty Bar The Downtown watering hole presents a production featuring the art of the striptease, with world-renowned pinup model Bettina May headlining the sexy soiree. April 5, 11 p.m., $5.
Mega Shark vs. Crocosaurus With all the unanswered questions posed by Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus, a sequel was inevitable. Rave’s monthly B-movie night brings you that second installment, starring Jaleel White (aka Urkel). April 2, midnight, free. Rave Motion Pictures at Town Square. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for tickets.
