Between filling the arena with water for a jet ski show and having food trucks pull directly into the building for some ringside eats at MMA events, South Point has clearly cornered the market on unusual and interesting events in Las Vegas.
This Friday, March 7, South Point will add to its list of outside-the-box events with Calvary Days, featuring the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment. Starting at noon, guests can enjoy a special (and free!) meet-and-greet with the riders and their horses. Then at 1 p.m., the four-hoofed action begins as the Armored Cavalry Regiment showcases a variety of pistol demonstrations with weaponry used over different generations of warfare. Riders will also demonstrate how they use their primary piece of weaponry, the cavalry saber.

Not long ago, we marveled at the amazing video marquee above the now-open Inspire Theater in Fremont East (on the corner of Fremont and Las Vegas Boulevard). Ever since, we've been chomping at the bit to get a look inside. Well, recently, we not only got through the doors, but took in one of the venue's first shows. Was the theater inspiring enough (cough, cough) to give it a thumbs up?

Blabbermouth pins May 21 through June 7 as the exact dates of a second GnR residency. Tickets go on sale this Friday, February 21 at 10 a.m. The information is confirmed on the Hard Rock's website via this embedded tweet which, strangely, can't be seen on Twitter.

With its first concert less than a month away, Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas is almost ready to
impress bowl us over at The Linq. Things are coming together so quickly that reps hope to receive a TCO (Temporary Certificate of Occupancy) by week's end, meaning construction is nearly complete.
One of the folks charged with making Brooklyn Bowl a reality on The Strip, David Pray, has been tweeting tantalizing peeks inside (and outside) the bowling alley-slash-restaurant-slash-concert venue for several weeks now. UPDATE: Brooklyn Bowl has decided no pics for you! All the tweets were deleted after our post. Thanks to Matt Brown for the heads up.
Seeing a guy dressed in what appears to be only a trench coat on Valentine’s Day might make you want to run the other way, no matter how desperate you are for a V Day date. If you encounter such a man outside of New York-New York this Friday, fear not. It’s all part of a fun publicity stunt, and not an audition for “To Catch a Predator.”
The newly opened Swatch store inside New York-New York is paying homage to its flagship Times Square store. Think old school New York where you’re approached by a man in a trench coat who opens it up to reveal watches he’s trying to sell you at a discount rate. Only these flashers aren’t selling hot watches in the stolen sense, but rather hot as in trendy new Swatch gear.

A few weeks ago, we filled you in on a scoop that the group would be rockin' out in Britney's showroom this March, possibly as a mini-residency. Tool now lists a stop in Vegas on their website, however, it's only for one night -- March 15. We're still really pumped about even that, though. The band will swing by Vegas after playing Fresno the night before. They'll head to San Diego the night after. And, who knows, maybe they'll come back this way again.
