A Lot to Pack In

For boxing fans, this week marks a significant moment in Las Vegas’ history. One of the most storied boxing venues in the country, MGM Grand Garden Arena, which over the decades has seen legendary fights like Evander Holyfield vs. Mike Tyson II in 1997, Oscar De La Hoya vs. Floyd Mayweather Jr. in 2007, and Deontay Wilder vs. Tyson Fury II in 2020, celebrates its 100th bout this week.

And what a bout it is! The card for the June 15 match is actually a co-main event, featuring four of the sport’s most exciting fighters: Gervonta Davis vs. Frank Martin and David Benavídez vs. Oleksandr Gvozdyk. This is one event fight fans do not want to miss (“Kings of the Ring,” p. 32).

Another milestone is being reached a bit north of MGM Grand. High Roller, the 550-foot observation wheel at The Linq Promenade, celebrates its 10th anniversary of showing tourists the valley like they’ve never seen it before (“Turn, Turn, Turn,” p. 18).

If you’re in town this week to get married, don’t skip the bachelor or bachelorette party, and we’ve got some great recommendations to make the most of your special event (“The Wedding Can Wait,” p. 34).

Hungry? How about some White Castle, available at five di erent Southern Nevada locations (“Small Wonder,” p. 17 ).

There’s a lot to pack into your week here, but we know you can do it!

Skywalk This Way

Natural Southwest wonder offers countless memorable experiences

Considering the absolute massiveness of the Grand Canyon—277 miles long and up to 18 miles wide at points—the nearly 18 square miles of Grand Canyon West may not seem like a lot. But trust us, Grand Canyon West packs the maximum amount of fun and excitement into that space, and best of all, it’s all only a two-hour drive from anywhere on the Las Vegas Strip.

If you only have a few hours to spare, make sure to include a visit to Skywalk,

an impressive glass-bottomed bridge built into the edge of a side canyon. It draws millions of visitors a year, and rightly so. The feeling of exhilaration felt as you see the Grand Canyon floor opening up beneath your feet as you walk cannot really be described in print. But trust us: It’s one of the most spiritual experiences you can have in the Southwest.

If you have extra time, squeeze in a zipline ride 500 feet above a side canyon for more than a half-mile, or head to

Peach Springs along historic Route 66, where you can schedule a whitewater rafting trip on the Colorado River. (We recommend checking weather reports first.) There are also plenty of hiking, off-roading and fishing opportunities available. Time to experience the Southwest in a whole new way. –Ken Miller

Feel the Beat

Have a blast with these painted pals

There’s a lot of genius that goes into the making of the Blue Man Group show that most people don’t even think about. For starters, there’s the look of the Blue Men themselves—all wear understated custom black jackets, pants and boots, about as muted an ensemble as one could imagine. But it’s brilliant, as it enables the audience to focus only on the faces of the performers (and the various items they experience during a typical show).

That’s only the beginning of the ingenuity at work here. Even before the show starts, a silent radio gets the crowd in a friendly, communal state of mind by flashing messages of congratulations, birthdays and more. By the end of this segment, you’ll feel like part of one big community, a feeling that only amplifies once the Blue Men emerge, making sounds and music from the most unusual of objects.

The feeling of discovery is the ongoing theme here, whether it’s finding out the decibel level possible from eating Cap’n Crunch, figuring out how to access an iPhone, or how many marshmallows you can fit in your mouth. (Spoiler alert: It’s a lot!)

Speaking of discovery, longtime fans of the show (this writer has been eight times and counting!) are sure to be thrilled to learn that, starting this year, the show is adding new components to the lineup. The bad news? The iconic Twinkie segment (called “The Feast”), which involves an audience volunteer, “poncho seating” for those closest to the stage and the effects of eating the snack cake on the Blue Men, is saying goodbye. The good news? A new segment is taking its place, this time for two audience participants. The company is very mum on the changes, so you’ll have to buy a ticket to find out.

But c’mon—it’s the Blue Man Group! You were going anyway, right? Those compelling beats, courtesy of a live band, only serve to propel the audience to its feet, and by the time the lights come on, you will truly feel altered—just more of the genius of Blue Man Group. –Ken Miller

Small Wonder

Chain’s iconic sliders are now available throughout Southern Nevada

The word “slider” gets thrown around a lot these days, but only one chain can claim to have invented the term: White Castle, a chain whose small sandwiches consisting of 100 percent beef with onions and a pickle earned that term in 1921 because they were so easy to eat. And while the franchise has been around for more than a century, it only began operations in Las Vegas in 2015. But the brand has since exploded here, opening five locations in Southern Nevada.

The lone location on the Las Vegas Strip, inside Casino Royale at 3411 Las Vegas Blvd. S., serves slider fans their favorite food 24 hours a day, as well as serving alcohol. And yes, White Castle memorabilia is for sale here! For more 24-hour-a-day White Castle, there’s also a location at 107 N. 4th St.

Other locations include:

• 4501 Paradise Road, across from Virgin Hotels Las Vegas; hours are 8 a.m.-11 p.m. daily, 8 a.m.-2 a.m. Sunday

through Wednesday, and open 24 hours on Thursdays.

• 535 Marks St. in Henderson, on the east side of the Sunset Station parking lot; hours are 8 a.m.-10 p.m. daily, drive-thru open daily from 8 a.m.-2 a.m.

• 22625 NV-161 in Jean inside the Terrible’s Road House gas station; open 7 a.m.-6 p.m. daily.

In other words, White Castle is wherever you are. What are you waiting for? –Ken Miller

Attraction celebrates 10 years of helping visitors witness an ever-changing landscape

Over the last 10 years, the landscape of Las Vegas has changed dramatically, and no one knows that more than riders of High Roller, a 550-foot-tall observation wheel that offers 30-minute rotations, during which time the entire landscape can be seen.

And what a changing landscape it has been! In the 10 years High Roller has thrilled its visitors, Resorts World Las Vegas was built, the Fontainbleau Las Vegas was finally completed, Sphere was added and the Vegas Raiders stadium and T-Mobile Arena were built. It’s a perfect reason why High Roller remains a mustvisit experience, even if you’ve been before—you never know what you’ll see this time.

And it’s not all about the sights you see while taking a pod; there are so many ways to make High Roller an integral part of your Las Vegas experience. First and foremost among these is the Happy Half Hour, where you and a group of adults can enjoy a pod with a stocked bar for 30 minutes from noon to 11:30 p.m.

If you’re here for nuptials, good news! You can reserve a wedding, complete with flowers and music, which will end with you kissing the bride or groom as the cabin finishes its rotation. And gender reveal parties for the parents-to-be? Yep, High Roller has got you covered on that as well, with a gender reveal light show that lights up the High Roller’s 2,000 LED lights in your baby’s color for 15 minutes. This package also comes complete with a signature “Mommy Mocktail” from Sky Lounge Bar.

If you’re attending with your entire family, High Roller can become a wonderland of discovery, not just about the various sights you will see, but the attraction itself. Get on your phone and download information about High Roller. For instance, did you know each cabin weighs 44,000 pounds and has a diameter of 23 feet? Or that the entire wheel weighs more than three-anda-half tons? –Ken Miller

A Ton of Fun for Everyone

Food, drink and experiences round out this popular bar, lounge, arcade and much more

I mean, who wouldn’t want to play giant beer pong, order 5 pounds of chicken wings, sing karaoke, play arcade games or share a giant cocktail with friends? You can do all this and so much more at the bar-meets-lounge-meets-karaokebar-meets-sportsbar-meets-restaurant hot spot, RedTail at Resorts World Las Vegas.

The menu is full of craft cocktails that use fresh fruits as well as shareable cocktails that have kitschy names like the White Girl Wasted, a tequila-based concoction (some can serve up to 10 people). Draft beers, wines by the glass, seltzers and nonalcoholic options are available, too. The food menu is packed with yummy recipes like poke nachos, Wisconsin cheese curds, fish and chips, wagyu burger, Philly cheesesteak, vegan ice cream, caramel chocolate brownies and those aforementioned chicken wings in flavors like buffalo and sweet honey chili. You can order the wings in 1-, 3- or 5-pound buckets.

Order some bottle service while checking out the hidden karaoke rooms, where you can sing Celine Dion’s hits at the top of your lungs, Thursday through Sunday, starting at $50 per person.

Don’t miss the happy hour deal, too, every Thursday through Sunday from 4-6 p.m. with $2 off apps, $2 wings and $3 off 20-ounce draft beers. RedTail is also home to many TVs, and on those TVs are the latest sports, including this summer’s UFC bouts. –Kiko Miyasato

A Natural Wonder

Attraction’s interactive components leave you spellbound

A trip through ARTE MUSEUM is sure to leave your head in a different space than you entered with. The immersive attraction features multiple rooms filled with a variety of incredible experiences inspired by nature. Start by entering a long room of waterfalls; mirrors and projections make them seem to stretch forever.

That theme of infinity continues throughout the exhibit, where you’ll traverse a tranquil, camellia-filled wonderland filled with subtle scents. ARTE MUSEUM actually has a

number of mild fragrances throughout, designed by Marianne Nawrocki Sabatier, a renowned French perfumer. And the audio component of the exhibit was created by music director Young-gyu Jang, to enhance each area’s theme.

Each new area you enter is different from the one before, with waves, ocean scenes and gardens inviting you to lose yourself for a few moments, and larger-than-life mythological creatures inhabiting a lush forest in season after season. If you have

a child with you, stop at the curved desk and create a natural work of art, which is then able to be scanned and will appear on a huge screen curving in front of you, where others’ artwork is also cavorting.

There’s so much more here, but be sure to take in a sweet spot of tea upstairs in the ARTE Tea Bar, where you’ll have a personal light experience of your own. –Nina King

Decade of Decadence


and dayclub celebrates 10 years of changing the game

Drai’s Beachclub and Nightclub at The Cromwell has taken its success to the top—literally and figuratively. This summer marks the venue’s 10-year anniversary, and the club sits pretty on the rooftop of the hotel, offering an open-air experience with to-die-for views of the Las Vegas Strip.

Dustin Drai, the president of Drai’s Management Group, recently reflect-

ed on the success of the past decade in an exclusive interview with Las Vegas Magazine

“It’s a testament to the staff; many are day one,” he said. “It’s a testament to us constantly changing and adapting to the market; never being complacent. I think the biggest thing is every day not being happy with the results, always looking to be better, to con-

stantly look at our business differently. Because of the adapting we’re able to do, it equals longevity.”

Longevity is something the Drai’s brand has a lock on. Dustin’s father, Victor, is a pioneer is Las Vegas nightlife, opening the city’s first after-hours club, Drai’s After Hours (in the basement of The Cromwell) nearly three decades ago. Dustin has followed in his

father’s footsteps, sharing the anecdote that his parents would bring him in his baby carrier to the after-hours club. “My mom would put my carrier on top of the bar,” he said, laughing. “I like to say that I’ve been in the nightlife industry for 30 years because from the moment I could open my eyes I was around it. I fell in love with it. It was just a natural instinct, and I really took the reins. I wanted to prove to everybody that I’m not just Victor Drai’s son but I’m actually worthy and good enough to do the job. I put pressure on myself to exceed (expectations). … I slowly grew through the company and understood the business and how to run it properly.”

To say he succeeded is a serious understatement. Dustin and the Drai’s team have successfully shifted the nightlife scene in Las Vegas. Drai’s Beachclub and Nightclub became the first venue to offer its guests full-blown concert performances by top artists in hip-hop and R&B.

“We wanted to be unique,” Dustin said. “And part of that was, let’s do live performances but let’s not just do two or three songs, let’s do full, 45-minute concerts, and that’s really what started setting us apart from everyone else

Tips/Insider Knowledge

Performing at the dayclub this week: DJ Direct (June 9), DJ Romeo (June 14) and 2 Chainz (June 15).

Performing at the nightclub this week: Paul Russell (June 11), 2 Chainz (June 14) and 50 Cent (June 15).

Drai’s After Hours stays open until around 6:30 a.m. Guests can enjoy hiphop and R&B music in the main room and the newly added house music room on Friday nights.

Fun fact: You’re closer to the Bellagio fountains than the customers staying at the Bellagio.

Bungalows at the dayclub offer their own dipping pools.

The best tables in the nightclub, said Dustin, are the dancefloor VIP tables.

Over the years we’ve perfected that model and still today we’re one of the only clubs, if not the only club, that does the 45-minute to hour set concerts.”

Past performances have included everyone from The Weeknd, Kendrick Lamar and Cardi B to G-Eazy, Rick Ross and Wiz Khalifa. And, of course, R&B superstar Chris Brown, whose shows have been some of Dustin’s favorite at Drai’s. “Chris Brown, his show is to die for,” he said. “When he puts on a show at Drai’s, it’s one of a kind.”

Whether its day or night, Drai’s Beachclub and Nightclub offers guests live entertainment that one simply can’t find at other party venues.

“At the dayclub, you’re going to experience live performances just like they would at the nightclub,” Dustin said. “They’re going to experience amazing hospitality. Plus, 20-foot-tall palm trees and an open-air rooftop. The nightclub, you’re going to experience a once-in-a-lifetime live performance in a venue that has been designed for live performances with LED screens all around, completely engulfing you

in the experience. You’re going to be so close to the artist you can touch them. … Whatever you’re celebrating or whatever reason you’re in Vegas, I encourage anybody to come experience Drai’s. When you come feel it, there’s such a special feeling. I’m very proud to be a part of it.” –Kiko Miyasato

Peter Vitolo

Manager immerses himself in the job

Peter Vitolo, general manager of the restaurant division at AREA15, works in the belly of the beast. Seriously. “You walk into the belly of the beast when you walk into The Beast,” says the Bronx native. “The design of this restaurant is you walk through the rib cage of the animal.”

Vitolo also oversees the immersive arts and entertainment district’s other eateries, Kaia Handroll, Conduit Café and Dream Weaver Milk & Boba Bar. “It’s a

breath of fresh air to work in a place like AREA15,” he says. “It’s great that not a day goes by that someone walks into the doors and isn’t blown away by some facet of this place.”

Before Vitolo was a part of the mind-blowing experience that is AREA15, he spent decades working as a bartender, food and beverage consultant, beverage director and manager in New York and all over Las Vegas. A couple of years ago,

just as a side hustle, he began bartending at various events at AREA15 which eventually led to his current management position of overseeing the restaurants.

“I can never be a 9-to-5 office worker because it would not hold my attention,” Vitolo says. “I need constant stimulation and to be pulled in every direction, and you don’t have that in any other business than F&B. I love working under controlled chaos.” –Kiko Miyasato

Bistecca Italian Steakhouse serves up your favorite classics in a pleasant setting

As part of your Las Vegas trip, we’re sure you’ve booked at least one special meal, one where your every need will be catered to, where the décor is striking and unique, and where the menu has exactly what you want—not to mention

an award-winning wine menu. And Bistecca Italian Steakhouse at Tuscany Suites & Casino checks all of those boxes and then some.

The first thing you’ll notice upon entering is the striking interior, an inti-

mate space divided in half by shelves that hold attractive bottles, bowls and more. Throughout the restaurant, impeccably appointed tables and booths all have great views of original artwork on the walls, courtesy of contemporary visual artist Patrizia Didiomete. This is a space you look forward to spending plenty of time in.

All your favorite salads are here, from burrata, served with pear and crispy

28 | 6.9.24 Las Vegas Magazine Courtesy photos

prosciutto and accompanied by basil and tarragon purée and lemon oil, to hearts of palm, served with avocado, sweet onion, mixed greens, heirloom tomatoes, mozzarella and capers in an Italian vinaigrette. You can also opt to have a Caesar salad prepared tableside, something we highly recommend if you’ve never experienced it.

The classics continue on the appetizer portion of the menu, from meat-

balls, made with veal, pork and beef and smothered in marinara, mozzarella and Parmesan, to shrimp cocktail made using tiger prawns and a lemon-scented cocktail sauce. Charcuterie fans will want to check out the antipasti misto, a chef’s selection of cured meats and cheeses accompanied by house-made giardiniera, Kalamata olives, Parmesan crostini and seasonal jam. Soooo good!

Now you’re ready for your entrée, and Bistecca has given every palate careful consideration. Meat lovers will appreciate how every steak here is prime grade beef, cooked to your exact specifications and garnished with cipollini onions and finished with Kobe beef fat. That means you’re getting even more flavor with your choice of filet mignon, boneless ribeye, porterhouse or New York strip, especially if you add on Oscar-style king crab.

Chicken fans have their choice of

marsala-style, served with sauteed mushrooms, and piccata, made with Mary’s chicken, lemon and capers in a white wine reduction. Seafood aficionados can opt for either halibut, drizzled in a lemon butter sauce and basil aioli, or wild-caught salmon in puttanesca sauce.

How about some pasta? Bistecca has many splendid options, from house-made lobster ravioli to Sunday gravy pappardelle, prepared with a braised tomato ragu of beef and sausage. If you’re a fan of duck, Bistecca serves a ragu made with braised Muscovy duck and served with root vegetables and orecchiette.

There are so many dessert options, you may be tempted to get more than one. And that’s a path we heartily recommend, especially when it involves delights like a chocolate tart topped with candied hazelnuts, cheesecake with caramelized bananas and tiramisu made with almond cake, co ee syrup, mascarpone cream and milk chocolate.

David Benavídez Frank Martin Gervonta Davis Oleksandr Gvozdyk

vs. Gvozdyk top MGM Grand Garden Arena’s 100th fight card

Whomever brought up the suggestion that the 100th fight night to take place at MGM Grand Garden Arena should be a double-header deserves recognition. While it’s not uncommon for a card to be promoted as a co-main event, combining Gervonta Davis vs. Frank Martin with David Benavídez vs. Oleksandr Gvozdyk guarantees a capacity crowd and an electric atmosphere full of hardcore boxing fans. The two matches already have two very di erent narratives that will conclude Saturday night. WBA lightweight champion Davis, who has risen in his 11-year career to become one of the faces of professional boxing, got under Martin’s skin at a May 4 press conference, with the two Davis vs. Martin and Benavídez

having to be separated at one point by the formidable figure of TGB Promotions’ Tom Brown.

Benavídez and Gvozdyk were all business and mutual respect.

“The Mexican Monster” and “The Nail” (the English translation of the Ukrainian fighter’s surname) vie for the interim WBC light heavyweight belt, a fight that materialized after Benavídez let go of his quest to unseat Canelo Álvarez as undisputed super middleweight champion and move up a weight class.

attention to matches via social media, making firmer connections between fans and boxers than any other time in recent history.

“The Tank” knocked out Garcia in their April 2023 catchweight fight at T-Mobile Arena. The origin of the dust-up between undefeated southpaws Davis and Martin was unclear but it seemed personal, although Davis has feuded with Stevenson and Floyd Mayweather Jr. as of late.

2:15 p.m. June 15, starting at $179 plus tax and fee. axs.com

At 37, Gvozdyk faces the usual ageism experienced by a professional boxer with a long career, but he stopped Isaac Rodrigues cold at MGM Grand Garden Arena in September with a solid right in two rounds before Canelo’s domination of Jermell Charlo in a unanimous decision. Benavídez demolished Demetrius Andrade at Michelob Ultra Arena at Mandalay Bay in November with his right, landing an overhand blow in Round 6 that led Andrade’s trainer to stop the fight.

While Benavídez may have outpointed Álvarez in their PR war, it’s Davis who has the most visible public persona of the evening’s kings of the ring. He and fighters such as Ryan Garcia, Shakur Stevenson and Devin Haney are masters at drawing

Performative provocations enable boxers to get in opponents’ heads as well as draw attention to fights. Davis has the punching ability to back up his boasts as evidenced by a blow in Round 2 that knocked Garcia down and slid him several feet backward on the mat. The touch-of-death left he delivered to Garcia’s ribs took three seconds to visibly take e ect and cause the latter to take a knee.

Martin may not cause the kinds of commotions Davis does, but he’s a rising star with 18 wins, only three less than Davis. It didn’t seem to be as much about what Davis said as much as the way he said it that seemed to get under Martin’s skin. “The Ghost” will get his chance to channel that fury as he helps make history at MGM Grand Garden’s 100th fight.

China faced a second cultural revolution after the debut of digital cameras. As the world’s second-most populous country moved toward its version of a market economy in the ’90s, its photographers began experimenting with digital photography long before it could be posted to the world via social media. Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art’s From Grain to Pixel: Contemporary Chinese Photography draws on that period to shed light on a previously underrepresented period in art history.

The transition from analog to digital technology created a sea change for visual artists. Precious film stock was less of a costly liability and memory

chips enabled near-infinite exposures. Approaches to composition, technique and post-work changed. Chinese artists gathered in new creative enclaves and took more risks.

From Grain to Pixel covers the period of 1993 to 2006 and draws on the visions of 14 artists. A vine-festooned gateway entrance provides a transition from the outer world to the abundance of imagery inside. An illuminated cityscape covers one wall and wish tags hang from gold chains, with visitors encouraged to make one and tie it to a chain.

and digital manipulation are used to create an 11-armed figure with symbols of commercialism and consumerism in each hand. He draws on art history for panoramic Romantique, which pays homage to Manet, Botticelli and Masaccio in an elaborate multicharacter scene.

Hong Lei, Tong Dazhuang and Cui Xiuwen also stage scenarios inspired by past masters, with the latter’s whimsical Sanjie recreating The Last Supper with a young girl standing in for the apostles. Other artists who use the body as a canvas are Huang Yan, Zhang Huan and Qiu Zhijie, the latter of whom used brush and ink painting to make patterns on his body that continue on the backgrounds behind him.


Large-scale works sometimes feature artists as central characters, such as Wang Qingsong’s 1999 photo Requesting Buddha No. 1. Buddhist iconography

Rong Rong and Cang Xin capture fleeting moments of artistic performance. Two of the latter’s Communication Series are closeups that depict him ritually licking, respectively, a 100 Yuan bill and rusted sheet metal. He places plaster molds of his face on the ground and invited people to smash them for East Village, Beijing (1994, No. 70) and, with Zhang

Huan, convinced a group of volunteers to lie naked atop one another to form a pyramid for 1995’s To Add One Meter to an Anonymous Mountain.

The exhibit is bookended by works of repetition and appropriation. Zhang Peili’s Continuous Reproduction is the first work revealed upon entering the gallery and depicts Mao-era peasant girls in a series of 15 images that deteriorate further with each take, representing fading memories of China’s past.

The penultimate piece in a counterclockwise tour of the gallery is Untitled (Andy Warhol). Inspired by Warhol’s Chairman Mao series of silkscreens, Tong Dazhuang lines up rows of Warhol portraits starting at a size smaller than a postage stamp to create a noisy canvas that demands to be looked at from different distances.

Los Bukis makes history as the first Spanish-language

residency on the Strip

Los Bukis with a third member who has remained with subsequent incarnations.

Los Bukis hit its stride in 1982 with the release of seventh studio album Yo Te Necesito, which garnered a Grammy nomination for Best Mexican-American performance. The lone composition not written by Marco Antonio, “Las Musiqueras,” was also the title of a film that starred the band, which would achieve cultural icon status during the decade.

It was inevitable that Mexican music would be represented with a Strip residency. The stars of banda, mariachi, norteño, Tejano and related subgenres have long found Las Vegas a welcoming environment. It’s particularly good timing for grupero gigante Los Bukis to have reunited in the wake of Vegas music venues upping their games to accommodate extended stays by the biggest acts from every major style of popular music.

Los Bukis was around for a quarter of a century before founding member Marco Antonio Solís went his own way in the mid-’90s. The bandleader carved out a successful career as a solo artist and songwriter for other singers as the rest of Los Bukis continued on under another name, but the appetite for the music of Los Bukis remained as constant over the years.

The lush, romantic music of Los Bukis has been a constant presence in Spanish-speaking households on both sides of the U.S./Mexican border ever since. It crosses generations, marks occasions, provided the backdrop for countless first dates and quinceañeras, and has been on set lists for an inestimable amount of wedding receptions and school dances.

The band enjoyed 17 Top 10 Hot Latin hits and five No. 1s before its hiatus, but a post-pandemic reunion tour was wildly successful. Una Historia Cantada kicked off Aug. 27, 2021, at SoFi Stadium with a set list that included “Tu Carcel,” “Cómo Fui a Enamorarme de Ti,” “Y Ahora Te Vas” and “Quiéreme.” As far as fans were concerned, it was a musical miracle.


That music has its origins in early 1970s Michoacán, where Marco Antonio formed a band with cousin Joel Solís. Los Bukis released its debut album, Falso Amor, as a quartet in 1975, with Marco receiving sole credit as songwriter. By 1980, the band had moved to the U.S. and added flamboyant conga player José Javier Solís, providing

Now Los Bukis plans to make miracles at Park MGM’s Dolby Live, joining a roster of rotating talent that has included Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars, Mariah Carey and Maroon 5. Los Bukis has demonstrated the capability to fill nearby Allegiant Stadium, but Los Bukis: La Residencia enables audiences to return to Las Vegas for a more intimate affair in a 5,200-seat venue with a state-ofthe-art sound system capable of capturing every nuance of Marco Antonio’s songs.

So far there are 15 dates, which could be followed by many more if the Los Bukis reunion becomes permanent for the time being. More regional Mexican acts will follow in Los Bukis’ footsteps, but for now Michoacan’s finest stands alone atop the headliner hill.

Check out these hot spots to eat, drink and be merry

With all the iconic landmarks on the Las Vegas Strip, the Tower at The STRAT stands as one of the most recognizable. It’s the tallest freestanding observation tower in the country, coming in at more than 1,000 feet. The STRAT is also home to a plethora of things to do on-property—one doesn’t have to leave to find fabulous food, top gaming, tons of heart-pounding attractions and a

great mix of entertainment. Here, we’ve picked three of our top spots.

We love the design of this restaurant because it transports patrons right to the funky back alleys of China where the bustling streets are home to some of the best hole-in-the-wall eateries. The immer-

sive CHI Asian Kitchen restaurant sets the scene for authentic and reimagined Chinese eats along with other Asian favorites. Signature dishes include the braised mushroom yee fu noodles, bulgogi fried rice, pork and shrimp spicy Szechuan dumplings, char siu BBQ pork and oxtail noodle soup. Don’t miss the red bean mochi, hand-rolled oolong tea and the sake and soju selections.

Visit the top of that freestanding observation tower and get your drink on at the highest bar in the city, 108 Drinks. You’d be hard-pressed to find another bar and lounge with the views you’ll soak in through the floor-to-ceiling windows. While one does have to purchase a Tower admission ticket to reach the bar on the 108th floor, you’ll find many specials throughout the week. Don’t miss Sky High Happy Hour from 3-7 p.m. Monday through Thursday, where you can enjoy two-for-one Tower admission and two-for-one wine, beer and cocktails. Beginning June 15, don’t miss the Bottomless Mimosas With a View Package every Saturday and Sunday. You’ll be able to enjoy as many of those bubbly, orangey cocktails while hanging inside or outside on the observation deck from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. for only $28.99 per person. And, we can’t stress enough that you don’t miss purchasing a bag of gourmet dessert popcorn—you’ll want to scale the tower for more!

Two UNLV students loved stand-up comedy so much they decided to open their own club at The STRAT, the L.A. Comedy Club. The intimate theater that seats 270 guests offers comedy nightly at 6, 8 and 10 p.m. This Sunday, June 9, don’t miss the club’s buy-one-get-one special. And what’s comedy without some liquor? L.A. Comedy Club offers a full bar and a lounge to hang at before each show starts. You can even take selfies in front of a fake stage and microphone that’ll fool your friends back home into thinking you tried your hand at some stand-up comedy while in Las Vegas! And check this out: For an additional $30 you can purchase the all-you-candrink package. All this week, catch comedians Peter Berman and Brandon “Gooch” Hahn.
