On this week’s agenda: an all-you-can-eat gospel brunch, Grease in the park, a classic horror flick gone musical, plus a variety show and timeless R & B from Grammy winners Boyz II Men. Have fun, and as always, check Groupon for even more great things to do in Las Vegas. Gospel Brunch at House of Blues The Strip | Sundays At the House of Blues, Sunday is the Lord’s day. Local gospel singers belt out traditional and contemporary hymns handpicked by award-winning gospel singer Kirk Franklin. The accompanying all-you-can-eat Southern breakfast (with bottomless mimosas and bloody marys) tempts audience members to the sin of gluttony. (3950 S.

Discover in person why they're the best-selling R & B group of all time.

(707 Fremont St.; free) Evil Dead The Musical 4D The Strip | Tuesday–Saturday Sam Raimi’s cult horror classic transforms into a campy sing-along mutilation during Evil Dead: The Musical 4D.
