UD - A Private Meal with Chef Thomas Keller

NATIVE CHEF

A Private Meal with Chef Thomas Keller

Every so often, a big-time celebrity chef rides into town and hosts dinner at the restaurant he founded. This is one of those times. Only here, it’ll just be you and 24 others enjoying a four-course feast (wines, confits, gras’s) manned by Thomas Keller himself. Ask him whatever.

Aug 29, 6pm, $195, Bouchon at The Venetian, 702-414-6251, reserve here
UD - Test-Driving a Supercar with a Pit Crew

DESERT THUNDER

Test-Driving a Supercar with a Pit Crew

The preparation is arduous—helicopter chauffeur transfer, 3D simulator sessions, five demo laps with a former professional driver in a barely-street-legal Ferrari 599. But the payoff (another 26 laps around Las Vegas Motor Speedway in a Ferrari F430 GT): worth it. You’ll have a pit crew.
411:
Booking now, $5,500, The Dream Racing Experience: Full Throttle via Dream Racing at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, 7000 Las Vegas Blvd N, 702-599-5199
UD - A New All-Night Sports Bar at Luxor

CENTRA STAGE

A New All-Night Sports Bar at Luxor

New plan for watching those out-of-continent games: walk to the middle of Luxor’s casino floor. You’ll see a raised bar (not a mirage). Inside: vaguely Egyptian lamping, live sports all night and drinks mixing Grey Goose vodka with watermelon Pop Rocks. Ideal camel croquet ambiance.
411:
Now open, Centra Bar & Lounge at Luxor, 877-386-4658
UD - Cocktail Pitchers at Hyde Happy Hour

FOUNTAIN BLEW

Cocktail Pitchers at Hyde Happy Hour

The early evening fountain show: you’ll be catching it, from a patio, with spicy jalapeño hurricane pitchers. This is the happy hour scene at Hyde going down every Friday through September—at which point you’ll have to go back to cocktailing from glasses.
411:
Fridays through September, 5pm, Fountains at Hyde Bellagio at Bellagio, 702-693-8700
UD - Grimaldi’s Finally Opens. Really.

FOR PIZZ SAKE

Grimaldi’s Finally Opens. Really.

Well, Grimaldi’s long-delayed second Strip location is delayed no longer. Which means blue-collar dough-slingers and highly trained pizza chemists working together at last, spinning Brooklyn Bridge water into desert pizza gold... but for real this time.
411:
Now open, Grimaldi’s at The Shoppes at the Palazzo, 702-754-3450
