Las Vegas may welcome more than the New Year this week. The valley may see two to three inches of snow, too.

For the gay and lesbian community (more appropriately and inclusively known as LGBTQ), the Las Vegas of 2014 has become more appealing than ever. The opening of hit nightclub Liaison inside Bally’s, a PRIDE/Gay Days weekend that attracted thousands, and the legalization of same-sex marriage in Nevada has given the gay community plenty to celebrate. Some of our readers keenly noted that “Sin City” was way behind the rest of the country on this civil rights issue so, perhaps, it’s fitting the final gay event of the year has been named EVOLVE.

The rumor about a JLo residency for Las Vegas has been around forever, but Jenny might be closer than ever to hanging around the block of 3500 Las Vegas Boulevard South.
It's been announced that Jennifer Lopez will perform a one-night-only concert at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace on New Year's Eve entitled, "The Best Is Yet To Come." I haven't checked Twitter yet, but that might come with a hashtag of #residencytest. A press release states Lopez will perform all her smash hits with the help of 25 musicians and dancers.
When you’re 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 people… but, when in Vegas! They don’t call January 1 National Hangover Day for nothing. After you’ve 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 Year’s 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 won’t cost you any cash cash, ahem, to attend if you purchased tickets to the New Year’s Eve festivities at Marquee or its sister clubs, TAO and LAVO. That’s right, free NYE after, afterparty.

There's another spot to enjoy all-you-can-drink bubbly on December 31st. Just not for $40.

The price includes a champagne toast at midnight and hors d'oeuvres. Table packages begin at $500 for a party of four. Guests can start raising their glass (after glass, after glass) beginning at 9 p.m.

HE WILL RETURN.
A coulrophobic's worst nightmare is coming back to Vegas for a very special performance this New Year's Eve. Puddles Pity Party will perform three shows at downtown's Commonwealth bar at 11 p.m., 11:45 p.m. and 12:45 p.m. December 31.
New Year's Eve in Las Vegas is a time when thousands upon thousands flock to the Strip for one big, raucous blowout. But, when nearly every spot is offering a special prix fixe dinner or what have you, what is the best way to do it? Here's what I would suggest.
If you've never done NYE on the Strip, you may be wondering, "What's the parking situation?" This is the situation: you can't park anywhere, ever, unless you are cool with getting there ten hours early and leaving the next day. Either that or get your walking shoes on and park somewhere a good mile away.

If you missed The Roots at Brooklyn Bowl before, you have no excuse this time. You’ve been warned. They put on a heck of a show and though it’s hard to explain if you haven’t experienced it, they just feel like Brooklyn Bowl. They feel like they should be on that stage. Jimmy Fallon should move his show to Vegas so they can be our house band at the same time.
You’ll have your shot to see what we mean over New Year’s Eve at The Roots Legendary New Year’s Eve Ball. Doors open and 8 p.m. and the band takes the stage at 9 p.m. If past shows are any indication, they should be good for a decently long performance.
First, yes, we know. The cheapest way to spend New Year's Eve on the Strip would be milling with the masses for free on Las Vegas Boulevard. But, what's the fun in that? For twenty bucks, you could still spend it outdoors and still ooh, ahh at fireworks come midnight, but be high above it all... ice skating.
The Cosmopolitan is just a few days away from transforming its Boulevard Pool into The Ice Rink and you can ring in the New Year there for $20 if you buy tickets early (i.e., now). At some point, admission will creep up to $30. If you'd still prefer free and were planning to book a room in Vegas, anyway, hotel guests will receive complimentary entry.
