At last night’s Major Lazer performance at Haze, Afrojack came in to check out Diplo, Wlashy Fire and Jillionaire. He was parading around the club with a waitress on his shoulders. Which gives us an idea–instead of doing traditional, side-by-side two-by-four DJ collaborations, why not go for the more exotic, vertical, four-by-two? Sure, there’s going to need to be some construction work on the booth, but it seems worth it.

Haze is getting hot in here. Herre. Wherever. Point being, Nelly is going into be at Haze tonight. Which we suppose makes it more like HazE.I., right? Eh? Anyone? No? Fine. We tried. Not hard, mind you. But technically, we tried. Click for more words and pictures »
Someone’s getting a room charge for five robes when they check out.
T-Pain started his House of Pain residency on Saturday night at Haze, rolling in with a crew decked out in Aria bathrobes. Which is the kind of halfassed, last-minute costume planning we’d expect from a bunch of guys who came to Vegas for a long weekend only to realize once they got here it was Halloween.
He personally greeted people at the tables before spinning a track he produced just for the residency. Which we’re guessing involved autotune. In the crowd to check it out were the Dolphins’ Kevin Burnett, the Cowboys’ Anthony Spencer, Daisy de la Hoya and Darryl Strawberry, who probably shouldn’t be allowed in nightclubs for his own good.
Just like this, except Wonder Woman is way sluttier and Superman is ordering bottle service.
Haze tonight gives you an excuse to put on tights and prance around. Not that you needed one. They’re doing the League of Nightlife Heroes, where the superhero with the biggest crew wins $2,500. Which could be used more or less to buy a lifetime supply of underwear you wear outside your pants. Up, up and a-Haze? Click for more words and pictures »
“Even El Scorcho couldn’t ruin these finely crafted AG Jeans.”
Weezer took over Haze last night to play a private party for fashionistas from AG Jeans. AG Jeans: The jeans that won’t come “Undone!” AG Jeans: They’ll have you leading The Good Life! You’ll feel like you could walk Across the Sea in these finely crafted AG Jeans. If Buddy Holly didn’t die in a fiery plane wreck in 1959, he’d surely be wearing AG Jeans today!
Before the band did “Say it Ain’t So,” Rivers Cuomo said, “I’m just up here rockin in my AG Jeans – they fit sooo niiiice.” Which we’re guessing was said in the spirit of ’90s irony? Maybe?
There to check out the show was model, actress and, most importantly, heiress Lydia Hearst rocking an incredibly bare midriff. Which we’re guessing made her great-grandfather proud he went through all the trouble of starting the Spanish-American War to secure that kind of freedom.

One of the strange side-benefits of Magic/Project week are the private concerts. Like tonight, when Weezer is doing the AG function at Haze at 9 p.m., where they can finally play for a crowd full of black-frame-glasses-wearing fashion insiders. As opposed to their normal crowd of black-frame-glasses-wearing regular people. Click for more words and pictures »
We’re almost to the point where viral videos are over before they actually begin. The Harlem Shake, the Baauer-spawned internet sensation that’s gone apeshit over the last couple of weeks, has its own official Vegas edition courtesy of Haze. Of course, it’s perfect timing for The Light Group, as Baauer is set up as a resident at Light. Though we’re already at the backlash stage of things, just since the beginning of February. At this point, Doc Brown is the only one who’ll be able to participate in these things in a timely fashion.

Want to win a trip to Tahoe and/or stare at a bunch of girls in white lingerie and fur boots? Of course you do. Haze tonight is doing the Tahoe Takeover, where the top prize for the largest crew is a two-day snowboarding trip for 20. Although we’re assuming to win, it’ll take way more than 20 people. Which should lead to some delightful awkwardness after the fact. Click for more words and pictures »
Look, we think the Giants probably could’ve found the money for Smith, too.
Super Bowl weekend and comedians apparently go together shockingly well, especially if you’re Will Ferrell doing bizarre Old Milwaukee ads. While no one was making out with a middle-aged Asian lady (that we’re aware of), Adam Sandler, David Spade and Nick Swardson were all at Haze on Friday night in a private area with a group of friends.
Jeremih, meanwhile, was at The Bank to do “Birthday Sex” and root for the Niners. That worked out well. On Saturday Charles Barkley was at Citizens and J. Cole was at Haze to perform for Floyd Mayweather, Steven Jackson and Darren McFadden. Then Barkley was back at Citizens on Sunday, making him about the only person on the planet who goes out for lunch before going to a Super Bowl party.
Finally, A$AP Rocky was at 1 Oak for a Super Bowl afterparty, doing “Fucking Problems” and six other songs. All while someone in his crew was rocking a Giants Steve Smith road jersey so, we’re all of a sudden on this A$AP bandwagon.
The Bachelor’s Sean Lowe brought a rare reminder of ritualized, queasily public degradation to a nightclub Saturday night when he hit up Haze for the launch of T-Pain’s House of Pain residency. He was with three guys and one girl–script, you’ve been so flipped–took pictures with a few fans and was out shortly after 1 a.m.
Also there for T-Pain were members of the Rams Matt Daniels, Matthew Conrath and Cortland Finnegan, for the latter’s birthday. They got to see Cap’n Autotune stop his set to make himself a cocktail, which was surprisingly democratic of him.
Lowe went to The Bank on Sunday for another low-key evening. On Friday at the Bellagio spot, Ryan Leslie was filming the video for his next single, “Higher.” Expect lots of slow-motion dancing from ladies in low-cut tops, if “every video filmed in a club in the history of ever” is any indication.
