Wed, Oct 5, 2011 (10 a.m.)
lair for the Cure at Rock & Rita’sF A dozen world-class flair bartenders convene at the Circus Circus party bar Friday night for a special fundraiser benefiting the American Cancer Society. Raffle tickets will be sold, or you can support the cause with a cocktail, as specialty drinks made in between all of the bottle-juggling will be auctioned off. October 7, 6 p.m., free.
Save Second Base at Tao Beach The Venetian venue commemorates Breast Cancer Awareness month with this tongue-in-cheek event to benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Pink “Save Second Base” wristbands will be on sale, and for $5, ladies can imprint their “second bases” onto the Save Second Base Wall of Fame. Be sure to dress in-theme, as dayclubbers in pink swimwear receive an open bar from 1 to 2 p.m. October 8, doors at 10 a.m., $30 men, $20 women, local ladies free.
Paul Oakenfold at Rain After three years of bringing some of the best names in EDM to the Palms, Paul Oakenfold’s Perfecto Vegas is coming to a close. Unless you plan on partying at the Palms this New Year’s Eve (a special installation of the party has been scheduled), Saturday night is your last chance to experience a Perfecto night out. The British DJ superstar spins his sensational sounds, with DJ Korean opening. October 8, doors at 10 p.m., $40, local ladies free.
Two-Hand Touch at Piranha Fall means football! Piranha teams up with Crush Saturday night to present this smoke-free, pigskin-inspired party. The Fruit Loop venue gives you plenty of opportunities to score, too—a $5K balloon drop is planned for the celebration. Dressing in football gear is encouraged, as a best tight-end costume contest completes the festive fête. October 8, doors at 10 p.m., $20, locals free.
A-Trak at Surrender You probably know that the Canadian DJ is one half of Duck Sauce, the duo behind the international smash hit “Barbra Streisand.” You probably didn’t know he’s worked extensively with Kanye West and even developed a notation system for scratching. Check him out Saturday night when he returns to Encore. October 8, doors at 10:30 p.m., $40 men, $30 women.
Miss Tropic Beauty at Bare Fifty beachy babes host the Mirage dayclub on Saturday as they vie for the title of Miss Tropic Beauty. Don’t leave too early, though—the finalists will be announced poolside late in the afternoon. Bangin’ beats will be supplied by resident DJ Que. October 8, doors at 11 a.m., $40 men, $10 women.
Rehab Season Finale After yet another successful summer of daytime debauchery, the infamous pool party comes to a close on Sunday. Wrapping up the eighth season of the Hard Rock Beach Club party staple are Cut Copy, electro duo Chromeo and mash-up master DJ Z-Trip. October 9, doors at 10 a.m., $40 men, $20 women, locals free.
Dada Life at XS The Swedish electro duo is known for high-energy sets—their showing at June’s Electric Daisy Carnival included accompaniment by a live marching band. Yes, a marching band. They take the tables at the Encore nightspot for the venue’s Monday industry night party. October 10, doors at 10 p.m., $30 men, $20 women, local ladies & industry free.
