  • MACK WILDS JOINS ERIC BELLINGER

    ell
    That’s a surefire way to get sued by Dave Coulier.

    R&B fans got a two-for-one ticket at Eric Bellinger’s performance last night at Haze inside Aria.

    Fans might have been satisfied with Bellinger singing his hits and the cover song we’ve been demanding – an acapella version of R. Kelly’s “Bump N Grind” (a thing that actually happened in real life). But after Bellinger was finished, the show continued with a performance by actor/singer Mack Wilds who sang a hit of his own. Unfortunately he did not finish with an acapella version of our favorite R. Kelly song.

    Interpol Plays Cosmopolitan

    Former alternative rock darlings Interpol took to the mophie stage at the Boulevard Pool inside the Cosmopolitan last night to perform a mixture of newer songs and songs you actually paid to hear.

    The dapperly-dressed band played hits like “Slow Hands” and “Leif Erikson,” filling the pool area with their darkly atmospheric sound before returning to their year-round job of ducking Joy Division’s lawyers.

    Las Vegas Is Comfortable With Its Sexuality

    The Associated Press ran a story yesterday noticing the shift in Las Vegas tourism advertising to let LGBT tourists know they – and their money – are welcome here despite the state’s current ban on gay marriage.

    One would think the fact that Elton John, Cher and Celine Dion all have shows here would be enough to let them know Sin City is gay-friendly, but new tourism ad campaigns featuring suggestively gay themes have been airing on Bravo and Logo since the spring with more in the works.

    We’re pretty sure the Rio’s neon sign already let’s the world know we’re cool with the LGBT community.

    Sailor
    Permission to board?

    Lake Mead is going to be a dirty puddle in a few years and we’re all going to have to escape this blasted-out dustbowl sooner or later. In the mean time: Nautical adventures. Haze is doing Industry Aqua-holics tonight, where the biggest group scores a three-day, two-night houseboat stay and personal watercraft rental on Lake Mead. Grab a few gallons of souvenir water while it’s still there. (more…)

    BottleRats
    Buzz can totally pull chicks. Chicks love astronauts.

    Nobody loves a bottle rat. Just like nobody loves a real rat. But if Michael Jackson taught us anything, it’s that rats can be wildly underrated. At least that’s what we’re pretty sure “Ben” was about. Anyway, Haze is doing the BottleRat Race tonight, wherein 20 ladies vie to collect the most mini-bottles and split $10,000 among the top three finishers. Wait, free booze and money? Nevermind. We’re back to not liking bottle rats. (more…)

    Here they are, clearly never meanin’ no harm.

    Here they are, clearly never meanin’ no harm.

    Haze is doing a Dukes of Hazzard-themed jam tonight, the Dukes of HAZEard. Because what on God’s green Earth could be a more American way to start Fourth of July weekend? Nothin’. That’s what. They’ve got the Crazy Daisies, which is great. But can it top an in-her-prime Catherine Bach? Maybe. Best of luck. We’re skeptical, but it could be done. (It probably can’t be done.)

    Let’s celebrate Easter the way the church intended: Worshipping a golden idol and surrounded by girls in skimpy bunny outfits. Haze tonight does the Hunt for the Golden Egg, where the lucky snooper can haul in raw omelet fixins worth up to $5,000 in cash and prizes. Which you’re going to blow on plastic grass and Cadbury Creme Eggs, because the spirit of Easter can’t be contained. (more…)

    J. Cole: ’80s stand-up comedian.

    Haze rolls with rapper and Jay Z signee J. Cole this evening. He’s probably not going to do too well in the ACM Awards this weekend, but we applaud him for coming out anyway. But let’s face it, Miranda Lambert is a lock in Female Vocalist of the Year. (more…)

    Ty$
    There is no way that isn’t just actual rope tucked under a hat.

    Haze brings in Ty Dolla $ign tonight. So. That’s happening. Look, is it any dumber a name than Wacka Flocka Flame? No. No it is not. Though it is dumber than Titty Boi. Which 2 Chainz never should have switched up from. In fact, someone else should be able to claim that name from whatever the Savers of discarded rap names is. Someone like Ty Dolla $ign. (more…)

    The Magic parties keep on rolling tonight, where Haze does Can I Kick It? with DJs Neva and Scene in a sneaker extravaganza. Shoe Palace, KNYEW, Suite 160, Hush, Hippo Esthetics and Dunk Xchange are all in on the action as $10,000 in gift cards are up for grabs. As always, in these situations, we strongly advocate for ‘Roos.

    MeanGirls
    Technically, it’s a brilliant Christmas movie, too.

    Haze celebrates that wonderful era of Lindsay Lohan’s pre-drug-nightmare hot years tonight with $5,000 for the hottest trio of pink-bedecked Mean Girls (with another prize for the largest group). We appreciate the extra effort they put into this. We would’ve just stopped at “Holy shit, redheads are awesome!” Wouldn’t have even offered a prize. It would’ve been more of a celebration. (more…)
