The Mad Caps Show up to welcome back Vegas escapees Ted Rader and Jon Realmuto. Show up to see how their roof-shaking rock sounds sans roof. And show up because The Mad Caps rule, and they don’t come around much anymore. With Dude City, August 30, 9 p.m., $20, Cosmopolitan’s Boulevard Pool.
MythBusters: Behind the Myths How do we know scientists have swagger? ’Cause we’ve seen Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman lie on beds of nails and subject audience members to the super-high-speed camera. This family-friendly show is as un-Vegas as it gets—and a damn good time. August 31-September 2, 7 p.m., $60-$205, Palazzo.
Hometown Heroes Cap your Labor Day local-style with a BMX demo led by MTV star Ricardo Laguna, music from DJ Kid Conrad, a dance battle and grub from Fukuburger spiced up by the one-night return of Sloppi Jo’s. September 3, 7:30 p.m. (afterparty at 9:30 p.m.), Insert Coin(s).
Shaq’s All-Star Comedy Jam As a comedian, Shaquille O’Neal’s a great basketball player. Thankfully, the lineup he’s assembled—Gary Owen, Capone, Tony Roberts and Michael Blackson—means he doesn’t have to be funny. Everybody wins. September 1, 8 p.m., $35.50-$71, the Joint.
ShoeZeum Calling all sneakerheads. Jordan Geller’s collection of more than 2,500 limited-edition Nikes goes on display at Neonopolis August 30, including shoes with a nod to the Mob, sneakers that look like lobsters and one pair worn by Michael Jordan. Daily, 4 p.m., $10.
Forever No More Landscapes and dark, quiet rooms are used to evoke emotion and explore memory in new works by Mikayla Whitmore at Winchester Cultural Center Gallery. Through October 12.
Pinkberry This frozen yogurt is arguably: A. the fro-yo that started the explosive trend, B. a favorite among sweet-toothed celebrities and C. one of the most delicious treats you’ll ever eat. The company celebrates its first Las Vegas store with free yogurt. Score! August 30, 5-8 p.m., Crystals at CityCenter.
