Brew’s Best at Lake Las Vegas The biannual beer fest is back this Saturday with more than 90 brews to sip and sample. The local lineup includes Big Dog’s, Joseph James and Boulder Dam Brewing, and hop-heads will be happy to find regional heavy-hitters like Uinta and Lagunitas also on the bill. Have a pint—or six—lakeside while enjoying live local music and the beautiful spring weather. March 9, doors at 1 p.m. (VIP) & 2 p.m. (GA), $40 (VIP), $25-$30 (GA).
GBDC: ’90s Party at Ghostbar The ’90s are making a big comeback atop the Palms Saturday afternoon, so break out the grunge-wear! Don’t be trippin’ when deciding what to wear, because the dopest dude and dudette will be crowned the day’s Fresh Prince and Princess. DJ Jazzy Jeff (of Fresh Prince fame) will bring the noise and play the best of the decade. March 9, doors at 1 p.m., $20, ladies free.
Rock ’N Roll Wine at Body English If 40-plus wines from more than 15 wineries don’t sell you on Rock ’n Roll Wine’s first tasting of 2013, maybe the music will. The last time RnR set up shop at Body English, The Script took the stage (they’re now a few radio hits in, including Will.i.am collabo track “Hall of Fame”). This time, VH1 “You Oughta Know” artist Eric Hutchinson is behind the mic, waiting to be discovered by winos like you. March 9, 7 p.m., $40-$45.
Porter Robinson at XS The EDM wunderkind returns, supplying a Saturday night set at the Encore club. Just don’t ask to buy the DJ a drink. March 9, doors at 10 p.m., $55 men, $20 women.
Sashay Away at Krave at the Rio Local queen CoCo Montrese is still killing it on RuPaul’s Drag Race, but this weekend she’s setting the competition aside to perform with a few of her Drag Race frenemies. Alyssa Edwards, Roxxxy Andrews and Serena ChaCha join CoCo to lip-sync (not for their lives this time), with DJ Michael Graves supplying sound in between. March 9, doors at 10:30 p.m., $20, free before 12:30 a.m., free w/text (“GAY” to 313131).
Ke$ha at Pure Make the most of your night (like you’re gonna die young) this Tuesday, as pop music’s bad girl hosts Pure’s 8-year anniversary bash. Note: Weekly recommends not brushing your teeth with a bottle of Jack. That’s gross. March 12, doors at 10 p.m., $30 men, $20 women, locals free.
Lingerie Money Machine at 1 Oak The Mirage nightclub presents this “sexy industry game show” as part of its One of a Kind Tuesday industry party this week. Watch the ladies in lingerie take a shot at winning $10K in cash and prizes in the money machine and jam to beats by resident DJ Que. March 12, doors at 10:30 p.m., $40 men, $30 women, locals free.
