Stoplight Mixer at Blush Meeting new people in our bustling city can prove quite difficult sometimes. Blush makes it easier this Thursday with a dress code that gives you more insight than an Ed Hardy T-shirt. Wear green to indicate you’re flirting, yellow if you’re there to mingle and red if it’s networking and nothing more. Ladies enjoy free champagne 11 p.m. to midnight. April 28, doors at 9 p.m., $30, local ladies and industry free.
Gang Bang Mobster Party at Piranha Okay, so the “made men” at the St. Valentine’s Day massacre weren’t shirtless under their zoot suit blazers. But then again, those mobsters probably weren’t offered free booze to strip to their skivvies. Win tickets to the Mob Experience at Piranha’s gangster bash and remember your sexy mob attire to receive an open bar from 11 p.m. to midnight. April 29, doors at 10 p.m., $20, locals free.

Charlie Sheen at Chateau “The partying run I was on made Sinatra, Flynn, Jagger, Richards—all of them—look like droopy-eyed, armless children.” Well, the tiger blood tirade that the Two and a Half Men star talks of pretty much began right here in Vegas, and the winning warlock is returning to Sin City this weekend to host at the Paris nightspot.

Paul Oakenfold at Rain The international superstar returns this weekend to his Saturday night residency at the Palms.

April 30, doors at 10 p.m., $40.
