Hunt for the Golden Easter Egg at Haze Forget poking around your backyard for sad chocolates stashed in the spider-laced shrubs. Haze has an Easter hunt for party people on deck, where “sexy bunnies” will scour their gilded environs for a share of $5,000 in cash and prizes. While you enjoy the beats and the booze, keep an eye out for eggs, especially the golden one. April 17, 10:30 p.m., $40 men, $20 women.
Sailor Jerry at Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend The cars, the jeans, the music, the hair, the rum. Sailor Jerry is setting up shop at the annual Rockabilly Weekend with a daily tattoo lounge (offering ink by Steadfast Tattoo Parlor), Friday night bowling (with Gutter Ball shots for those really bad rolls), a pinup contest and the Sailor Jerry pinup model dunk tank, where you can get a pretty girl soaking wet in support of combat veterans. Hooray! April 17-20, times and prices vary.
Tao Beach Opening with Jason Derulo Get ready to sing your own name and “Talk Dirty,” because Jason Derulo is kicking off the season for Tao Beach as host of its opening bash. With that huge hit song and a same-named third album dropping on Tax Day, no doubt Derulo will be ready to cut loose with the club denizens who know his words by heart. Backing him up in the booth: DJ Vice. April 19, doors at 11 a.m., $30 men, $20 women.
Peace Love & Hoppy-ness at Big Dog’s Draft House The annual spring brew fest features a lineup to satisfy brew beginners and ale aficionados alike. Be sure to check out the local-ish crop (including brews by Laughlin’s Pints and Reno’s Brasserie St. James), and don’t miss out on the guest taps, either—Stone’s new Saison and Go-To IPA brews will be on draught, as well as unusual pours from Uinta, New Belgium and Pizza Port. Live music and raffles for Big Dog’s merch (growlers for a year!) complete the hoppy happening. April 19, 3-9 p.m., free entry, $5 tasting pint glass, tasting token prices vary.
Seven Lions at Marquee Dayclub A group of lions is called a pride; former metal drummer Jeff Montalvo is now called Seven Lions, a name pulled from Gene Wolfe’s fantasy novel Latro in the Mist. The DJ/producer (and Game of Thrones fan) will bring his progressive dubstep sound to a sunny setting this weekend at Cosmo’s party pool. Bikinis + bass + fantasy-inspired electronic music, anyone? April 19, doors at 11 a.m., $30 men, $20 women.
Wine Walk at Lake Las Vegas An al fresco wine tasting, lakeside, on a gorgeous April day—do we really need to twist your arm? Nonprofit New Vista will have whites, reds and sparkling wines on hand at its fundraising crawl, as well as a specialty cocktail and interesting pours like Allure’s Peach Moscato and Camp Jack’s Apple Wine. Spend your Saturday night under the stars, glass in hand. April 19, 7-10 p.m., $25 advance, $30 at the door.
Aloe Blacc at Rehab He may have stolen the hook from Elton John’s “Your Song” for single “The Man,” but we’ll forgive Mr. Blacc—this time. Now that Rehab’s extended its weekend pool party for the 2014 season, catch the R&B star—best known for his vocals in Avicii’s club-crossover hit “Wake Me Up”—as he takes over the Hard Rock dayclub on Saturday. Then return to the Paradise Pool Sunday for a double-dose of boozy beach-life festivities. April 19, doors at 10 a.m., $40 men, $20 women.
Will Sparks at XS New York duo The Chainsmokers thought ahead when they wrote that bouncy hook to radio smash “Selfie,” but it was Aussie DJs like 20-year-old Will Sparks who helped bring bounce—also known as the “Melbourne Sound”—to the masses. While he’ll likely drop his “Blurred Lines” remix, we’re hoping this fast-rising DJ digs into his lesser-known stash of bangers that helped put bounce on the map. April 20, doors at 10 p.m., $30 men, $20 women.
