  • Rock n Roll Wines @ Rio Voodoo Lounge
    If you have ever attended one of Chris’ Rock ‘n Roll Wine Tastings, you know that it is a primo gathering of the young, vibrant, hip and beautiful of Las Vegas. But that doesn’t mean that the over-40 or even over-50 crowd is excluded, just in the minority. His events have been huge (Mandalay Bay on the Beach), but often are smaller and more intimate....

  • Genevieve Sings Golden

She sings in the Monkey Bar Lounge where they do not serve food. I highly recommend...

  • Piero’s Italian Restaurant
    From the moment you pull up and the valet rushes to open your car door, you know you are going to be treated like a special person. Established in 1982 by Freddie Glusman, the Karen Avenue Piero’s restaurant quickly became a retreat for the colorful characters around town, including the Rat Pack. Glusman moved to the Convention Center Drive location in 1987 and...

  • MJ’s & Ronnie Foster
    There’s a new spot for live music on Sunday nights called MJ’s Bar & Grill. It used to be called the Boston or Sultan’s Table, but look for a new mood as the new owners Monica and Amanda have done a total remodel. Entertainment is by Ronnie Foster and his band. 9:30pm-12:30am. 3417 S. Jones (between Spring Mtn & Desert Inn) Las Vegas NV. Related...

  • A Wild Celtic Night
    We had a late start on St. Pat’s Day celebration. A day long seminar at the Las Vegas branch of the National Speaker’s Association and the election for the Board of Directors of our high rise kept me busy until evening. By the time we got to McMullan’s Irish Pub, which was my number #1 choice to party on this most special day, the line was long long...

  • St. Patrick’s Day Warm Up Pub Crawl
    For those of you who take the Emerald Isle celebration seriously, here’s an itinerary for the downtown 2nd Annual St. Paddy’s Pub Crawl, which judging by the list of venues and the time schedule, is a very hallowed event. As the organizers themselves quote from Paul Hennessey, an apparently very wise Irish philolosopher, “Drink Early – Avoid the...

  • Progressive & Modern Jazz @ Tuscany
    Tim Bratt plays on Sunday and Monday nights at the Piazza Lounge, which is by the reception desk in the Hotel. Don’t go to the Casino – they were clueless. While Tim anchors both nights with his innovative and unique approach to drums, he has two very different groups on those two nights. Sunday night is the Tim Bratt Quartet playing a jazz that Tim describes...

  • Ronnie Rose & Release All Star Band @ Barcode
    This event was cancelled due to some administrative problems. Look for the Release All Star Band evenings to start up again April 5. Don’t forget the cutting edge music of the Release All Star Band at the Barcode on Thursday nights. This is a blend of jazz, smooth jazz and R & B with a younger crowd than most venues. The musicians are all top quality and...

  • Downtown Grand Openings
    The push to gentrify Downtown Las Vegas and especially Fremont Street east of Las Vegas Blvd is gaining momentum with the addition of two very attractive venues designed to give a sense of elegance and intimacy in an otherwise diamond-in-the-rough milieu. The Cocktail Room located at 111 Las Vegas Blvd is celebrating its Grand Opening with DJ Robert Oleysyck on Thursday...

  • Blues Night cancelled
    I don’t know why, but unless it has something to do with the City coming down because of some sort of ordinance violation, the cancelling of Blues Night at 3rd & Bridger (the Church) is one of the dumbest things to happen this week. In fact, in a few weeks. A packed house on its second Wednesday, this was the very definition of success for an Off the Strip...

  • Tuesday Night Live – Jazz & Blues
    It’s Tuesday night and you want to hear some live jazz or blues in a place that doesn’t break the bank, is easy to park and you’re away from the mass of humanity clogging the Strip. Three places offer great variety, all located close to, but off the Strip. Larry (Wild) Wrice and the Gents of Swing play straight ahead jazz and old standards at Capozzoli’s...

  • Live Music Every Day of the Week
    Sunday Brunch @ Gordon Birsch. 11 am to 4 pm. This is definitely the place to be on Sunday afternoons if you want to dance your heart out. Every Sunday is a different group, so you need to try them all. A Brunch menu is available, with tables in the bar and dance area. Guest artists sit in and the afternoon can be full of suprises. No cover charge. Howard Hughes Parkway,...

  • The Golden Voice of Genevieve
    If you missed Genevieve last weekend at Piero’s, you still have another chance to enjoy the velvet voice of one of my favorite female Vegas vocalists at one of my favorite Vegas restaurant/lounges. You’ve got two good reasons to get out of the house this Friday or Saturday or both. Genevieve delivers a song in pure golden tones, and she is equally at home...

  • Wild Wrice Jazz Brunch
    Sorry to say that this brunch is no longer happening. I want to make another plug for my good friends Louise and Larry and the reprise of the Sunday Jazz Brunch that’s happening at Elvis Restaurant and Lounge from 2-6 pm. The Gents of Swing with Larry “Wild” Wrice on double bass drums, Randy Thomas on piano and Richard Straub on upright bass deliver...

  • Old Style Vegas @ the Bootlegger
    The Bootlegger Bistro is making a valiant effort to preserve the Old Vegas for those of us who appreciate the less corporate side of entertainment. Live music needs supporting if we are going to keep it alive. This 24 hr Italian landmark offers blues/jazz on Wed from 8:30-10:30 pm, blues/soul on Thurs 8:30-10:30 pm, Old Vegas entertainers Fri and Sat from 10 pm and crowned...

  • Blues Night @ 3rd & Bridger
    Sorry to say that this event is cancelled! Last night was HOT at the Church, or should I say COOL?! The first ever Blues Night at the locale on 3rd & Bridger known for Jazz and singers on Friday nights was an unbelievable debut to what I hope is a long and flourishing run. I don’t want to be thought of as prejudiced, but when I see that half the crowd are...

  • Brat Pack?
    Invited to join the original BRAT PACK by a lady friend who knows a lot about what’s going on around town, I must say that I was favorably impressed by her sole comment, “It might be fun.” Judie Brooks, Nancy Brady and Kat Ray are the names mentioned. I have NO IDEA, but I have been to Ferraro’s and liked the food and the old Vegas, “made...

  • Slainte! at McMullan’s Irish Pub
    Step inside and enter a wee bit o Eire in the form of an Irish pub best found down by the harbour in old Dublin. This is another of the multitude of “transport” experiences that carry you away to exotic and foreign places when you walk through a door and leave Las Vegas behind. The bar is packed and lively; you can join the boisterous crowd, or retreat to...

  • Spotlight on Horns at Pogo’s
    It’s like a music revival, the souls of each horn-player jubilating in high communion with keys, bass, guitar and drums, filling the smoky, packed confines of little Pogo’s Tavern with musical lyrics of pure joy. Are these guys having fun or what? Are we on the Left Bank in Paris or in a basement in Greenwich Village? This is as authentic a night of swingin,...

  • Ernie D’s Bar
    If you want to get really authentic, take a drive down to Jean, head straight west to the hills and meander through Sandy Valley to Ernie D’s. As gritty and downhome as it gets, Ernie holds down the end of the bar while a real-life constable moonlights as bartender. If you are special, Ernie will offer a shot of his Johnny Walker Blue that he keeps hidden in his...
