Continuing the tradition of fine “-nado”-based entertainment, Moon tonight is doing Cashnado. Where you can win a pile of cash, if you can survive inside a tornado full of sharks. At least that’s what we’re going to pretend this is about, until we’re explicitly told otherwise. Click for more words and pictures »
Moon tonight is just throwing a bunch of stuff you like together in the blender and hoping you like the milkshake. It’s the Back 2 School Cheeseburger Bash, in honor of National Cheeseburger Day. You like schoolgirls! You love meats and cheeses! They’ll also have a yearbook photo booth. Are you not entertained? Click for more words and pictures »
The former, as you can see in the five images below, are fairly self-explanatory. It looks like there’s going to be a lot of earth tones, some possible tweaks to the pool, and several dozen invisible people jamming out to a non-existent DJ.
But a few others are more of a conundrum. We already know Ghostbar is coming back tomorrow night, and the Rain makeover is well under way. So that just leaves the Moon/Playboy Club space for the apparently S&M-vibed Jane, right? Except The Palms just did over the former Playboy spot as View. Not to mention looking at those four images doesn’t entirely line up with the current architecture in place, particularly the windows. Still, it seems closer than not that those are the spaces we’re looking at here, whether as an upcoming makeover or an abandoned concept.
Both of these photos share this ornamentation, which would lead you to believe they’d be on the same floor. At the back of the top image is a bar backed by windows, just where the main bar in Playboy Club sat. There’s a DJ booth in roughly the same spot as there used to be as well. In the second image, the bar would be the one across from the elevator bank, with the side room to the left.
The top image again shows what could be the bar facing Moon’s elevators with the room on the left being what would be the Satellite space.
The problem is in the bottom image, which includes a high glass ceiling that doesn’t seem to be quite lined up as Moon’s retractable roof. It also doesn’t feature the mezzanine where you look down the dance floor or doors to the balcony. Neither does either of those two renderings take into account the windows that would surely feature prominently in any Moon redesign. That’s the best guess we have, but any other theorists out there are welcome to chime in.

Now that the World Series of Poker is done, Attack Poker is having its official afterparty at Moon tonight, hosted by the duo of Laura Croft and Christine Smith. We’ll pause so you can get all the “pair” jokes out of your system. Done? Great. Anyway, the online poker site seems to be aggressively pursuing an “attractive ladies and games of chance” strategy. We think, for some reason, people might be into that. Click for more words and pictures »
GBDC After Dark: The place you can find these guys. (Photo by Toby Acuna | SPYONvegas.com)
Moon does another edition of Ghostbar Dayclub After Dark tonight, because you don’t want to have to wait until fall to break another pinata at a nightclub. And also because you can’t actually go to GBDC because you’re literally a vampire. Sorry about that, Blacula. Click for more words and pictures »

Alie Layus and DJ Exodus hold it down tonight for Moon Tuesday. We’re still too buys in an Oscar Hangover to think about going out tonight though. We feel like there’s so much we missed. Like, say, seeing Argo in the theater. Pretty big one, all things told. Or like whether Life of Pi was actually a decent movie, or just a Neil Gaiman graphic novel in film form. So many questions still unanswered. Click for more words and pictures »

Just in time for the weather reminiscent of the chillier parts of Hoth, Moon is doing its Snow Bunny Bash tonight, where you can win $2,500 just for bringing the most ladies. Who then will probably want something in the way of booze, and you’ll have to keep them entertained all night. Which starts to seem like it would considerably eat into your $2,500 profit margin, but nothing ventured, nothing gained, we suppose. Click for more words and pictures »
We’re beginning to think that The Roots all have body doubles. (Photos by Joe Fury, Rowland photo by Erik Kabik)
The Roots’ ?uestlove took time off from the like billion other things he’s constantly doing to head out to Moon Saturday night to do a live set with DJ Jazzy Jeff, in what we’re assuming is the world’s first “Nightmare on My Street”/”The Seed” mash-up. (Note to self: If this wasn’t the case, learn how to DJ so as to properly compile a “Nightmare on My Street”/”The Seed” mash-up.)
Meanwhile, Kelly Rowland was taking Rain out for one more spin with a show there to do “Motivation,” “Soldier,” “Dilemma,” and “When Love Takes Over.” Kelly shook fans’ hands and posed playfully for pictures during her flawless performance. After the show she hung out with a group of 15, but before the performance she was at N9NE Steakhouse and Scarlet, where Questo was also spotted. Hopefully working out the details on a “How I Got Over”/”Say My Name” mash-up.

Ugly Sweater Parties: Still a thing, apparently. Moon is doing one tonight, so you can continue to get mileage out of that Christmas beast you’ve been schlepping to party after party for the last five years since these things seem to have taken over. Kid Conrad spins, and your grandmother will be ashamed when she sees you wearing your Christmas gift from last year she knitted you to this thing. Click for more words and pictures »
