The course itself carries on that fun vibe, too. Winding through city streets and local parks, the 5K route is dotted with hydration stations that dole out hot chocolate. Holiday music, a giant Santa inflatable, and snow blowers help to set
Home of Las Vegas’ first traffic light and high-rise building, Fremont Street keeps fans of vintage Vegas consistently starstruck, with lavish celebrations thrown by the landmark's eponymous party-planning committee. As 2011 wanes, the TributePalooza celebration shreds resolutions into neon ticker tape with eight hours of crowd-pleasing rock strewn across three stages. Headlining the event, raucous hair-metal heroes Steel Panther glam it up with unabashedly goofy stage moves and unapologetic spandex. Following suit with headbanging levity, fellow silly-string strummers Rock Sugar mash up sound-pies of ‘80s pop and mascara metal, creating laughter you can dance to.

During the concert extravaganza of the Country Superstars Tribute, four talented singers team up with a five-piece band to celebrate twangy legends such as Garth Brooks and Willie Nelson in a posh, 600-seat concert hall. After a collection of songs from Reba McEntire's Grammy-winning oeuvre, a Tim McGraw tribute artist culls from the star's 32 No. 1 hits, from the rascally "I Like It, I Love It" to a musical rendition of Munch's The Scream. In addition to mastering singers' tale-spinning vocals, tribute artists also capture their signature styles, from Kenny Chesney's signature cowboy hat to Reba's ubiquitous propeller beanie.
The bawdy, jubilant, and surprisingly tender Broadway musical smash The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas charms the pants off audiences at the classic showroom of The Plaza Hotel and Casino. Nominated for six Tony Awards and winner of two, the libidinous comedy whisks audiences to the fictional town of Gilbert, Texas, where foxy molls and peppy johns go about their frisky business at the fabled Chicken Ranch brothel. When a hypocritical TV reporter crusades to close down the house, the damsels-in-undress join forces with their local sheriff, who also happens to be a loyal client, in a comedic battle of the bulge. Drama Desk Award-winning composer Carol Hall’s songbook scores big laughs with rascally tunes such as “The Aggie Song” and the show-stopping “Texas Has a Whorehouse in It,” along with tear-inducing ballads such as “Hard Candy Christmas.” The hearty production boasts a singing, dancing, and teasing cast of actresses certain to put steam under the collars of the chilliest temperance leagues.
Naomi Rosen and Louise Carruth understand that tea is more than just a beverage. For Naomi, it’s the deep, complex flavors—from her position at Joy’s Teaspoon, she fills area pots with more than 75 loose-leaf teas and more than 30 spices. For Louise, it’s the community aspect. Enamored of tea’s ability to unite people, she frequently attends afternoon teas at assisted-living residences, where she bonds with residents over tea-leaf readings and tea-related yarns. The two have joined forces to organize the Las Vegas Tea Fest, which combines Naomi's extensive knowledge of her stock with Louise's appetite for togetherness. Their one-day event includes tea and food pairings, cooking with tea demonstrations, a traditional Chinese Wu-Wo tea ceremony, and on-site exhibitors such as Little Candle Tea Company. Tastings gather teas from countries such as India, Japan, and China, while local artisans hawk tea-related wares, such as giant teabags you can sleep in when you have a sore throat.
