Burlesque, Ring Girls and a Moonwalk-Off

Crown Theater’s Ring Girl Face-Off

Crown Theater’s Ring Girl Face-Off

In anticipation of their momentous transformation from a nightclub into a... nightclub with a boxing stadium, the Crown Theater is gathering the one thing that’s crucial to any boxing venue: ring girls. And true showmen that they are, they’re inviting in spectators and giving you a chance to vote for your favorites. Ah, democracy.

Lavo’s Moonwalk-Off

Lavo’s Moonwalk-Off

Time to start practicing your MJ moves: Lavo is celebrating the King of Pop’s 52nd birthday with a late-night moonwalking blowout, and there’s a thousand-dollar cash prize for whoever defies physics the best. Afterwards, there’ll be noncompetitive dancing... as if that’s even possible.

Aug 29, 11pm, $20 for men, $10 for women, Lavo at the Palazzo, 3325 Las Vegas Blvd S (at Jay Sarno Way), 702-791-1800

Wet Republic’s Restaurant Week Bash

Wet Republic’s Restaurant Week Bash

Here’s a hard-and-fast principle: you shouldn’t have to leave the pool for food. To that end, Wet Republic is kicking off Vegas’s weeklong prix-fixe-apalooza with food from spots like Jean Georges, Circo and Sensi served poolside, alongside ’60s-style go-go dancers and synchronized swimmers. We’re pretty sure the 30-minute rule doesn’t apply.

Aug 30, 8pm, $30.01, WET Republic at the MGM Grand, 3799 Las Vegas Blvd S (at Audrie St), 702-891-3563

L’Atelier’s Open Kitchen Burlesque Show

L’Atelier’s Open Kitchen Burlesque Show

Joël Robuchon’s buttoned-up French spot is transforming its stadium-style open kitchen into a stadium-style burlesque arena, with roving champagne buckets and a team of dancers (courtesy of 40 Deuce) to distract the chefs. Extra points to the first person to make it rain escargot.

Craftsteak Goes Cheesesteak

Craftsteak Goes Cheesesteak

Tom Colicchio’s beef haven is transforming into a pool hall for restaurant week, complete with dueling piano players, a few billiard tables and those legendary Kobe steaks ground up into Philly-style steak sliders—which either counts as a waste of steak or the best thing that ever happened to the slider.

Sep 1, 10:30pm, $30.01, Craftsteak at the MGM Grand, 3799 Las Vegas Blvd S (at Audrie St), 702-891-7318
