Here's Your Vegas Weekend Cheat Sheet: June 26-28

June 26, 2015 at 5:10 PM | by | ()

It's BAZ, baby, BAZ!

Here's a cheat sheet for what's happening in Las Vegas this weekend. These are events and listings that we picked because we think they're cool, noteworthy and/or funny. This is not a complete listing of everything that's happening in Vegas this weekend so simma' down now. Remember, what happens in Vegas...should probably be shared with VegasChatter. XOXO.

Melody Sweets Presents "Big Top Circus and Burlesque": The tassle-wearing vixen of Absinthe kicks off her break-out show tonight in the Absinthe Tent at Caesars Palace. Melody will perform both covers and originals from her album Burlesque in the Black accompanied by live Vegas musicians and a mix of aerial and burlesque acts (including Dirty Martinai, Buttercup Delight, and Absinthe Duo Fevrier.) Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door. Doors open at midnight.

"For The Record: BAZ" Opens Tonight: Not into the prodcution style of Absinthe? Head on over to Mandalay Bay's Light nightclub to check out the newest but most intimate Cirque du Soleil production yet, based on the music and style of movie director Baz Luhrmann who's best known for "Moulin Rouge", "Romeo + Juliet" and most recently, "The Great Gatsby." Tickets start at $55, plus fees.

Hard Rock's "Final Toast" for Center Bar: On Sunday, June 28, Hard Rock will host a “Final Toast” party for locals and visitors as well as past and current employees from 7 to 10 p.m. Top music hits from 1995 will be playing, and attendees can sign their name on the original Center Bar before it closes for good. The final toast will be given by Robin Leach, which may or may not affect your decision to be there at closing time. Meanwhile, guests can still enjoy the bar's "Last Call" promotion through Sunday. That gets them five of the bar's most popular shots for just $5 and which also come in with a limited-edition Center Bar shot glass.

This isn't the first time Melody has given us a little somethin somethin on the side, having previously won us over one one one before rolling out a Wild Wild West Burlesque Show followed by a holly jolly XXXMas Burlesque Spectacular.

Melody Sweets Knows How To Keep Ol' St. Nick Extra Jolly

Where: 3570 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109
December 9, 2014 at 10:36 PM | by | ()

We don’t need much goading to get excited about a Melody Sweets project. When it has reasonably priced tickets and a charity component, well, that’s pretty much a slam dunk in our books. The sultry singer who performs as the Green Fairy in Absinthe will strip down to something that’s 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 Melody’s 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 Madison’s 1923 Bourbon & Burlesque.

Absinthe's Melody Sweets Takes Her Burlesque Back To The Old West

Where: 3570 S Las Vegas Blvd. [map], 89109
July 11, 2014 at 8:06 PM | by | ()

If you just can’t get enough of the Green Fairy from Absinthe, get excited to see sultry star Melody Sweets in a different type of costume. On July 22, grab your boots and spurs and hit the tent in front of Caesars Palace for Melody Sweets’ Wild Wild West Burlesque Show.

The show (and music video premiere) features Absinthe’s vocalist as well as other cast members from the show including The Gazillionaire and Penny as Cowboy Summerlin Sam and his trusty steed, Phallus. It would be hard to imagine raunchier, rowdier dialogue than the two exchange in Absinthe, but if Penny’s character is named Phallus, our guess is this will be at least equally over-the-top.

Las Vegas Showgirls to Take On SI Swimsuit Models

November 26, 2012 at 1:42 PM | by | ()

VegasChatter's newest contributor is Will McGough or Wake and Wander, a writer who spends every waking moment wandering. (See what happened there?) For his first assignment, we threw him right into the deep end and he went, willingly, to report on swimsuit models, showgirls and Vegas.

We’re going to be hard pressed to find someone giving a greater gift to men-kind this holiday season. It’s been announced that the Sports Illustrated annual swimsuit issue in February will feature a blockbuster bikini battle between its swimsuit models and our Las Vegas showgirls.

Christmas, it appears, has indeed come early.

Is Absinthe Closing (Again)?

Where: 3570 Las Vegas Blvd S [map], 89109
January 17, 2012 at 2:06 PM | by | ()

Could Absinthe soon be taking its final bow (again)?

Absinthe, what a tease you are. Last fall, you worried us sick that you would be leaving us forever, but it turned out we were just on a break while you tore down old memories to erect new ones in the form of a permanent event structure. You can imagine our déjà vu then when we saw this recent tweet from our beloved Melody Sweets:

Melody Sweets: Hot Chocolate, Mimosas, and Margaritas

December 6, 2011 at 4:51 PM | by | ()

Time for another My Vegas. It’s hard trying to keep tabs on all the happenin’ stuff in Sin City, so we’re calling in expert advice. Every time we bump into a Vegas celeb, we’ll grill them on where they rate and what they like to do (yes, handily, this can also double as a stalker’s guide to Vegas).

No we haven't completely lost our minds yet, although we have had our doubts, and this isn't a VegasChatter Flashback. This My Vegas installment continues our discussion with Melody Sweets since we had to break to cool off, one too many times a lot to ask of the Absinthe star.

Last week, Melody let us peek behind the sparkly curtain to learn about performing as a child, leaving New York City, starring in the absolutely excellent Absinthe, and hinted at her future plans. Today, we add Melody's favorite Vegas places to our little black stalking book.

Absinthe's Melody Sweets Talks To Us About Snakes and Sock Puppets

Where: 3570 Las Vegas Blvd S [map], 89109

First we got the smile. Now we slide into the mind of Melody.

The Green Fairy, star of Absinthe, object of our affection, burlesque star, top Halloween costume idea. Anyway you slice and dice it, you can't help but notice Miss Melody Sweets and wonder what tickles those green feathers. Which is why we camped outside her dressing room in a jet black wig and panty hose until she caved asked her nicely for an interview for the sake of our readers.

Does Absinthe Still Have It?

Where: 3570 Las Vegas Blvd S [map], 89109
November 4, 2011 at 12:27 PM | by | ()

We don't care what "it" is as long as this is it. Swoon.

Earlier in the year, we proclaimed Absinthe was the best new show in Vegas. We may have overshot the adjectives in our excitement as new was extraneous. It was the best damn show we'd seen in a long, long time, period. So, fall rumors of our favorite new booty call disappearing gave us a sads until we learned a week later that we were only on a break.

The show re-launched in a new, permanent home outside Caesars Palace two weeks ago and we butt dialed our way in this week. So, what's our little darling like seven months later?

For those willing to step it up above this... but, not by much.

This Halloween, if you’re tired of the zombie craze or don’t want to be just some slutty (fill-in-the-blank), we’ve got a few options for you -- Vegas-style, of course! And, if you know us at all, you can guess that this won't be a list of the regular Vegas icons: mob men (snore)... showgirls (yawn).. not even Elvis (blasphemy)!

Once you decide what you're going to be, don't forget to check out our complete guide to all the hottest parties to decide where you're going to rock your look this Halloween! And, don't forget to email us a pic!

5. LMFAO’s Red Foo

Everyone knows and loves the boisterous party rocker, and we do, too. Especially because he can frequently be found at Marquee on Party Rock Mondays. Dressing the part is easy: Get a big ass ‘fro. Remove the lenses in your glasses, yo. Squeeze into some animal print pants (leggings, found in most women’s departments will do) and start shufflin’. Every day, as practice.
