When youíre hungover and exhausted the last place you may want to be is trapped in a real-life snow globe with a bunch of other hungover, likely unshowered peopleÖ but, when in Vegas! They donít call January 1 National Hangover Day for nothing. After youíve finally gotten all the confetti out of your hair (and possibly found your missing shoe), it could be time to crash but this is Vegas and our best hangover cure is to keep on drinking.
Snow Globe Dayclub Dome at The Cosmopolitan has a good solution for those not ready to call it quits on New Yearís Day. For $20 for men and $10 for ladies, guests can enjoy a complimentary brunch and champagne open bar in the Marquee main room from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. then dance to the sounds of Carnage (sounds perfect for right after NYE!) and Cash Cash. It wonít cost you any cash cash, ahem, to attend if you purchased tickets to the New Yearís Eve festivities at Marquee or its sister clubs, TAO and LAVO. Thatís right, free NYE after, afterparty.

After weeks of fielding queries, we finally have a roundup of Super Bowl -- sorry, BIG GAME -- parties in Las Vegas to share. Due to high demand, we're launching our annual guide now. Make sure to bookmark this page as we'll add events as they're uncovered/revealed. The newest parties will always be listed first so you won't have to do any unnecessary scanning. If you see one we don't have listed yet, email us the deets at firstname.lastname@example.org! Know that an event is sold out? We want to hear that, too!
Also, make sure to follow our friends and party experts, @VegasBigGame, on Twitter. If you've got a question about a party, they have an answer. Operated by a group of friends who've traveled to Vegas to view the Super Bowl for 17 years now (2015 will mark year #18), their Twitter account is an unmatched resource. They've already created this awesome infographic reviewing the parties of 2014.

This week's auction is already making headlines, but probably not in the way the actor would have wished. He's felt compelled to publicly deny being in serious final need while publications have not held back in their descriptions of the event, from Vocativ.com heralding it as Reynolds "personal garbage fire sale" to Gawker terming the items up for bid as "insane garbage." Starting to see a theme? If you're in need of a good laugh, you should click on both of those hyperlinks as I dare you not to LOL at some of the commentary.

We donít need much goading to get excited about a Melody Sweets project. When it has reasonably priced tickets and a charity component, well, thatís pretty much a slam dunk in our books. The sultry singer who performs as the Green Fairy in Absinthe will strip down to something thatís sure to be festive at her XXXMas: A Burlesque Christmas Spectacular.
The naughty holiday show set for December 23 will feature eccentric performer Johnny Fayva as St. Prick (no, not a mistake) and will include some of Melodyís co-stars from Absinthe as well as the dearly departed Vegas Nocturne. The 18+ show is slated to feature insanely talented tappers The Scott Brothers, bubble girl Charlie Starling, aerialists Ming & Alexa (all from Absinthe) plus Vegas Nocturne contortionist Candy Charlotte and Aya Fontaine and Buttecup Delight from Holly Madisonís 1923 Bourbon & Burlesque.

Miranda Sings is YouTube famous so, if you've never heard of her, that's probably why.
I'd never heard of her, either, until this week's webisode of Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee hit the Internet. Since seeing her special brand of, umm, comedy, I'm not sure if I actually "get it" (this is the moment I turn "old"), but it did spark my interest when I discovered she's headed to the Plaza for a two-day run in January.
'Tis not really the season until Bellagio fires up the Christmas tree.
The resort held a lighting ceremony for its always breathtaking holiday tree (writing that just to make someone twitch) last night. This year's fir stands 42 feet tall, weighs 6,800 pounds (!!) and is covered in 7,000 twinkling white lights as well as 2,500 multi-colored ornaments.
Also within the Conservatory, guests will find those adorable polar bears made of white carnations, mischievous animatronic penguins, a walk-through snow globe, a model train display and tens of thousands of poinsettias. The winter exhibit will be on view through January 3. VegasChatter reader @paperposter has already dropped by and shares the images you see in this post.

If youíre not in the holiday spirit yet, get ready for a slew of events and attractions sure to get you out of a Scrooge-y mood. Many casinos are getting festive with holiday displays and shows plus several unexpected surprises like a snow tubing experience right off The Strip. Read on to plan your next few weeks of fun while we try to pretend itís a snowy winter wonderland in the desert instead of a foggy and wet landscape.
○Winter Wonderland in Downtown Vegas: Get festive downtown with activities like ice skating on a synthetic rink ($5), photos with Santa ($10), a real snow play area ($5 for a half hour) and sledding down a real snow hill ($10 for five sled rides). Local food trucks will be serving up holiday treats for purchase and there will be a tree lot so you can pick your own Christmas tree. There also will be a movie and lights show projected on a 20-foot wall that plays every 15-30 minutes. This attraction will be closed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, but is otherwise open Monday through Thursday from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to midnight and Sunday from 11 a.m. until 10 p.m. Click here for more.

Downtown Vegas will once again be overrun this May by the mohawked, safety-pinned, pierced and tattooed when the Punk Rock Bowling and Music Festival (PRB) returns May 22-25 for its 14th consecutive year.
Tickets will go on sale in next month for the fest which features live music, a two-day bowling tournament, and a punk rock poker tournament. Festivalgoers can expect nine bands to play each day, as well as dozens of small club shows and after-parties featuring some of punk rockís finest. Crowd favorite, Rancid, will count among 2015's headliners. They last played PRB in 2012.
Replacing its annual winter festival, but still benefiting the Lou Ruvo "Keep Memory Alive" Center, Ultimo is about to launch at Venetian|Palazzo. Three gargantuan events are planned for December 5-7.
Where last year's La Cucina festival -- especially, the Grand Banquet -- was the ultimate in food events for 2013, Ultimo is shoring up to blow last year out of the water. For a dinner that included food by Mario Batali and Dario Cecchini, Clint Holmes singing Christmas classics and a live reading of Dante's Inferno, that is not an easy task.
