Hula Dancers, a Burlesque Pool Party and Pizza

Pairing Wine with Art at Bellagio

Pairing Wine with Art at Bellagio

Bellagio’s master sommelier and BGFA’s director are matching wines from the cellar to paintings from the gallery’s current exhibition of landscapes at Art & Wine: A Perfect Pairing. We’re thinking Monet’s Haystacks and a French sauvignon blanc... with lingering notes of dry grass.

Classic New York Pizza in the Desert

Classic New York Pizza in the Desert

A Midnight Pool Party with Absinthe

A Midnight Pool Party with Absinthe

The Green Fairy’s known to do interesting things to people, so keep that in mind when you go to the Dip & Dance poolside party at Encore—it’s hosted by the cast of the contortion-heavy adult circus Absinthe. Be prepared for burlesque trapeze acts and drinks served from atop a human pyramid.

A Mai Tai and Limbo Luau at Tao Beach
