Hey DJ Won’t You Play That Song And Keep Me Dancin’…

15 Jan

hakkasan-LogoLately, there has been so much nightclub buzz around Hakkasan, the $100 million dollar and then some gigantic dayclub/nightclub/restaurant taking residence on the corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and Tropicana Avenue in the former Rain Nightclub space at MGM Grand, and it’s exclusive DJ contracts as reported by the Las Vegas Sun with Deadmau5, Avicii, Tiesto, David Guetta, Steve Aoki and Calvin Harris, to name a few, you would think it will be the only place to get your groove on. But that is not the case. There are still plenty of DJs and nightclubs to go around.

Here are two new DJ announcements:

Dirty-SouthWynn Las Vegas just announced it has “42 Electronic Dance Music DJ Residencies” on its dayclub and nightclubs roster for 2013 including will.i.am, John Dahlbäck, Max Vangeli, Bassnectar, and Dirty South. You can see the entire list at WynnSocial.com.

PaulyDMTV Jersey Shore alum and current star of his own show The Pauly D Project, Paul DelVecchio, was added to The Light Group DJ roster as a resident with his own night called TURN UP at HAZE Nightclub at ARIA Resort & Casino debuting Saturday, January 19.


And don’t forget, Vegas has so many nightclubs and lounges (not all are listed) with something going on every day of the week, and when spring rolls in so does daylife and that’s an entirely new list.

After the Countdown

7 Jan

On New Year’s Eve I was celebrating with my three-year-old great-niece Brielle, my mother and brother (Happy New Year!) watching the fireworks from atop the Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower from my mother’s kitchen window. If I wasn’t such a wonderful aunt to stay in so my nephew Alex could go out, I would have hit up at least one of three great parties (A Vegas New Year’s Eve 2013) and sipped champagne all night. Instead I opted for a Ciroc Peach martini and some sparkling wine from Trader Joes that’s been in the wine fridge for a while.

New Year’s Eve would have been spent at Bagatelle Restaurant & Supper Club. They held a New Year’s Eve Gala hosted by Robin Thicke. I’ve been a fan of his since the Evolution of Robin Thicke album – 2006. It was a fashionable night with beautiful people.

The celebration kept going the next night at Hyde Bellagio at their “Lost Angles” party, a Tuesday night industry event. Common performed live with The Sayers Club on New Year’s Eve. Definitely a more relaxed night out full of celebrity.

Happy New Year!

The most rewarding about the end of last year and start of this New Year was/is spending it with my mother and brother and waking up with my great-niece Brielle (she’s three) who made it to midnight to yell into the phone “Happy New Year Daddy!”

As kids, we were to be able to watch the fireworks from our parents upstairs bedroom window. Now the trees are mature and blocks any view. However, from the kitchen window we had a clear view of the Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower fireworks and a little of what was going on Downtown as well.

Brielle was very excited to see the fireworks through the window and on TV. The more she anticipated the next pop of color, the more enthusiastic she became and the tighter she squeezed as I held her.  It was magical.

Welcome 2013. It’s going to be a great year.
