OPEN BOOK

The Palms’ Brand-New Gambling Shrine

Big sports month: NBA playoffs, Stanley Cup, that pivotal A’s vs. O’s series not shown in your local TV market. Choosing just one game is like picking a favorite child. Your alternative: watching 33 of them simultaneously, spread across Cantor’s new 1,250-square-foot video wall. It’s just responsible gaming.

A Mass Assembly of Secret Picnickers

A secret picnic rendezvous between two people is a lovely thing. Between thousands, it’s Dîner en Blanc, the infamous Parisian pop-up picnic making its Vegas debut this year. Join the mass of white-garbed picnickers as they converge on the desert with wine and assorted cheeses. They’ll let you know where when the time is right.

Swim-In Movies at the Cosmopolitan
SWIM FAN

Swim-In Movies at the Cosmopolitan

Swimming pools and movies go together like the armed forces and beach volleyball. Which is to say, not at all. At first. But after watching Top Gun (or Casablanca) from the floating position at this weekly in-pool movie series, you’ll come around. Especially seeing as there’s popcorn involved.

PIE EFFECT

A New, Chemically Enhanced Grimaldi’s

General rule of thumb: you can’t copy New York pizza. Unless you’re Grimaldi’s, and you have a chemist on staff to duplicate the mineral content of Brooklyn’s water supply—the mark of their second location on the Strip, and third in Vegas. Remember to wait 20 minutes before swimming to the movies.

Your New Cocktail Mixer Is Beer
PINT BREAK

Your New Cocktail Mixer Is Beer

Just a classic Vegas steakhouse with a simple mission: to use any and all food as a conduit for beer. Blue Moon in your mayo. Italian sausages braised in Peroni. And now: the ale Bloody Mary and chocolate stout margarita (the breakfast and post-brunch-dessert of champions, respectively).
