Finally, a chill weekend. It’s been a busy few weeks in Viva Las Vegas. I am loving all the events and shows that have been popping up on the strip. I attended the opening of RockTellz and CockTails at Planet Hollywood.
This run features singer Meat Loaf. I like this concept a lot. He sang, he talked, and he answered questions. We were able to learn more about the artist behind the music. I think this type of show will have Vegas appeal. Die hard fans will love it. Others may be familiar with the artist, enjoy the show, and leave knowing more than when they entered the theater. Meat Loaf’s show runs until mid-November. I’m interested to see who they will feature next.
The ShowBiz Roast of legendary drag queen Frank Marino was held at the Stratosphere last weekend. This was the third roast to date. I think many people were looking forward to this one, because we knew it would be over the top! It was, of course.
It opened with singer Skye Dee Miles stripping down to her lingerie with male back up dancers and singing “It’s Raining Men.” A few of our famous news and magazine columnists dressed in drag. The cast of Frank Marino’s Divas took the stage. The Jersey Boys stripped down to boxers. Siegfried made a surprise showing on stage and played along with a fake Montecore tiger (it was Brian Thomas all dressed up,) and hypnotist comedian Marc Savard moved it all along as the Roast Master. AND, that’s just a taste of what went on!
I really enjoyed Marc Savard as Roast Master. Marc is one of my favorite people to follow on twitter. I think he’s absolutely hilarious! It was nice to see him up there, using his humor! Frank was such a good sport. He’s also one of the funniest people I’ve ever met. His one liners always amaze me. He’s so quick witted. Divas is a fabulously fun show that everyone must see.
Coming our way at the Cosmopolitan is the Social Club. I’m really excited about this. It’s going to be a restaurant, bar, club, and show… all rolled into one. I’m also glad to hear the hotel has signed Bruno Mars to a bunch of weekends in 2014. I like how the Cosmopolitan sticks to it’s NEW and NOW theme. It works for them. They stay really current.
I’m happy to be hosting a few things coming up soon. Taste of The Nation Las Vegas at the Palms on October 17th. 100% of ticket sales benefit Share Our Strength’s fight to end childhood hunger. I will be one of the emcee’s along with the Review Journal’s Doug Elfman. You can get 20 percent OFF your ticket if you use the code: DOUGDAYNALV – I hope to see you there!
I am also hosting the Fall Expose by UNLOKT to benefit After School All Stars on October 24th. It takes place downtown at Mingo’s Kitchen and Lounge. Food, fashion, and music. It should be a fun night out!
Thanks to everyone for your continued support, it was nice meeting some followers at the Three Square Food Bank event I hosted at Insert Coins, and at the KXNT Car Wash Wednesday. I love seeing your face and saying hello.
I’m tying up a few more things in my professional career, then… I will be settled in and ready to blog more often. Have a great week!
