Zombies, chocolate tarts and Willie Nelson: This week in Vegas
Wed, Jul 18, 2012 (6:08 p.m.)
The Flying Karamazov Brothers The “eccentric lunatics” bring their unique brand of vaudevillian comedy to the Venetian Showroom, where audience members can challenge them to juggle anything under 10 pounds (crutches, Godzilla toy, bottle of bubbly). How ’bout a stack o’ Weekly? July 19-21 & 26-28, 8 p.m., $50-$80.
Jerry Seinfeld Don’t see Seinfeld because he’s an icon; see Seinfeld because he’s constantly writing new material, and he’s still as funny as ever. July 20, 7:30 p.m., $75-$150, Colosseum at Caesars Palace.
Zombie Dawn This micro-budget zombie movie from Chile has been building buzz for several months, and this weekend is your only chance to catch it locally. Bonus: Attend the movie and get a free comic book prequel. July 20-21, 8 p.m., $7, Sci Fi Center.
Willie Nelson He’s always on our mind, and now he’s also in our town. Or he will be Saturday. And don’t assume just because he’s pushing 80 he’s slowing down; he played 27 songs last Friday in Costa Mesa. July 21, 8 p.m., $43-$106, Sunset Station Amphitheater.
First Food & Bar Watch Party Check out the Palazzo gastrobar on Cooking Channel’s Unique Eats this Sunday while munching on free samples of the dishes featured in the show. Mmm, pulled pork egg rolls and monkey bread. July 22, 7-8 p.m., free, Palazzo.
Starbucks Refreshers Mix green coffee extract (from unroasted Arabica beans) with fruit juices and ice—and voila! A tea-like treat for a hot summer’s day. Cool Lime or Very Berry Hibiscus.
Savory & Sweet Bites Cooking Class Acclaimed pastry chef Megan Romano instructs the first class at her new bakery, Chocolate & Spice, sharing the secrets of tasty gazpacho, bruschetta and chocolate tarts. Yes, there’ll be plenty of sampling. July 25, 6 p.m., $65, 7293 W. Sahara Ave., email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up.
