Venetian really likes to go all in with their seasonal theme events. Their Chinese New Year exhibit was something to see. Their, hopefully, annual Winter in Venice completely takes over the front of the resort. And now, Carnevale, a summer-long celebration of events, has kicked into high gear. It's a really diverse selection of experiences. They claim 300 activities and it looks plausible. The full calendar is here. They keep updating and many events are free. We recommend you take a look. There's a lot going on.
Everything from fashion shows, celebrity chefs, and performers to a "Madame Tussauds Wax Figure" demonstration we're intrigued about. From June 12-18, along "restaurant row," a 3D painting will be created while you watch. It'll later go on permanent display.
With daily 100+ degree temps, it's something we're all likely doing, anyway. So, why not score a freebie out of it?
Tropical Smoothie Cafe will offer complimentary 24 oz. Jetty Punch smoothies next Friday, June 21. And, all you have to do to nab yours is to wear flip flops. Already got yours on, right? The deal will be available from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. just when
we're the sweatiest it's the hottest and relief couldn't be more needed. TSC operates three locales on the Strip, one at Excalibur, one at Harmon Corner and one that just opened a few days ago at Stratosphere. Off Strip, there are almost 20 additional locations. All will take part.
While spring was focused on butterflies, this season it's all about birds. On the ceiling, perched around the displays, and real-life inhabitants in the greenhouse. You can spy them through the windows. It can be tough in bright daylight, but inside are parakeets and finches.

Three ways to celebrate your 21st in Vegas? Make that four.
Off Strip Hofbräuhaus wants to toast patrons
trading fake IDs for legit ones celebrating their right to drink with a free liter of Hofbräu beer on their 21st birthday. We're sure quite a few will drink to that. But, if that ship has already sailed for you, here are some other Vegas deals you might want to redeem:

It may not be summer officially, but the temps in Vegas have called for poolside relaxation for weeks now. And, while the LVH pool may not be at the top of your list (or, let's keep it real, on your list at all), this just might get you to reconsider.
LVH has launched a daily "Cool by the Pool" happy hour that's open to not just guests, but to all who want to pop by. Set for 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., the best draw may be the chance to work on your tan for free while pregaming with 2-for-1 drink specials. Two dollar shrimp cocktails will also be offered. If that's not enough, LVH promises daily drawings with "fabulous prizes," too. If you win one, let us know how fabulous fabulous is.
LVH's pool deck can be found on the third floor.
Just when we were considering a trip out to Vegas' only drive-in, the Cosmopolitan has come through with a much better way to enjoy an outdoor movie -- poolside. The resort will bring back Dive-In Movies soon, but with a new twist. This summer will be all about the double feature.
Starting May 27, The Cosmopolitan will again host weekly Monday movie viewings at Boulevard Pool. Films will be a mix of classics and family friendly flicks, ranging from Ghostbusters to Despicable Me. But, the best part will be the two separate showtimes, one at 7:30 p.m. and the other at 10 p.m. which will give us double
the reasons to keep on drinking the selection.
Dive-In Movies are free to attend for hotel guests. All others will need to fork over three bucks. (Another change from last year when it was gratis for all.) Food and beverages will be available for purchase.

By now, after witnessing it finance and organize a record skydive from space, Red Bull ought to have earned our respect as a prominent entertainer and promoter (how you feel about its energy product is up to you). And, as Vegas will experience when Red Bull brings its BC One Cypher to the Fremont Street Experience on May 18, its parties are not limited to high risk and booze-fueled events.
BC One is a multi-layered competition that showcases a type of dance known as "B-Boying," or breakdancing, pitting contestants against one another in "battles" on the dance floor. When it started in 2004, the competition was by invitation only, but now the series is open all. The winner of the Vegas event will advance to the National Final in Houston in August. The National Champion will be flown to Seoul, South Korea to compete in the World Final this November.
Check out the video below for a preview of what to expect on May 18 on Fremont Street. It looks like a really fun event to drop in on and, considering it's free, we recommend doing so. With the date of the event being a Saturday, it might just inspire your own dance-floor performance later that night in the clubs. The competition kicks off at 8 p.m. under the Fremont Street Experience canopy. Find out more via RedBullBCOne.com.

In Vegas, not every live music act requires payment and accompanying service fees. Here's where to rock out without having to pull your wallet out. Unless, of course, you can't talk your friends or that hot stranger into buying you drinks...

Fremont Street is filled with
creepy characters and street performers, but not many have stopped us in our tracks for all the right reasons. The safe sax guy draws a crowd as do random dance groups or magician types. Then there's (nearly) naked Indian dude and fat guy in a little g-string that attract a lot of eyeballs, but tends to scare large crowds off. But, how many acts on Fremont have wowed you long after the Experience lights have gone dark for the night?
For us the answer is apparently not many since a recent act that stopped us in our tracks was the first that drove us to write 'em up. You may have guessed that from the title, though.
One of city's longest-running free attractions is about to become a piece of Lost Vegas.
Rio's Show In The Sky will mark its final performance on Saturday, March 30 at 11 p.m. Reps aren't saying why it's being shuttered, but we do know that the cast was informed last night. Show in the Sky has been a part of many a Vegas must-do list for some 16 years now. We hear that it's suffered cutbacks in both crew, performers and nights leading up to this news.

Happy hour goes down twice a night Mondays through Thursdays (5 to 7 p.m. and after 11 p.m.) with 2-for-1 cocktails and free bites. Guests only need to show a hotel room key to score happy hour specials.
Would free baggage transport make you switch hotels for a convention (or any other time) in Las Vegas? The Plaza is now the first hotel in Las Vegas to offer free baggage transport to and from McCarran Airport via Bags Inc.
Bags Inc. works with MGM Grand, Harrah's and four other hotels in Las Vegas, but The Plaza is the only hotel in offering the service for free. The service is only available to if you are flying Southwest, Delta, United, American, US Airways, JetBlue, WestJet or Virgin Atlantic. This service would be especially handy if you're traveling to Las Vegas for a convention with a lot of baggage.
