DAY 2 OF MDW 2010

Plenty of pools parties, a UFC fight everyone has been waiting for, Nas, Snoop, Shaggy,  Chelsea Handler, Eva Longoria throwing a birthday party for her husband, Tony Parker and a ton of clubs with World Class DJs spinning the 1s & 2s.

Here is a list of places hosting the fight



Monday May 31st, 2010 is Memorial Day, a day to remember those who have fallen in defense of this fine nation. And why do we here at Sin City Trifecta call Las Vegas the Big Sin?

Out here, Memorial Day weekend is one of the craziest weekends in the Big Sin. So between the brods and the beers and the debauchery, or maybe on your way back where you’re visiting from, Take a minute to remember those who have fallen so that we can enjoy living and or playing in the Big Sin.

Not to take things too seriously, the following is a list of clubs and pools worth checking out this weekend.

Las Vegas…off the radar

Tens of millions of tourists flock to Las Vegas every year.
The majority of you stay and play on or around the strip. Regardless, the building boom here in Vegas has spawned many worthy restaurant, lounges and hotels, that are not on the the Vegas Radar. Especially, if you would rather do Vegas on a melow tip; not constantly surrounded by a mass of loud, boisterous tourists.

Firefly Tapas Kitchen and Bar is one such place; from Gazpacho to Mushroom Tarts and everything in between, the menu is first rate and the Mojittos are good enough to be deceptively corrupting to ones better judgment. Firefly is located at 3900 Paradise Road (A Two minute cab ride from the strip).

The Artisan Hotel is a boutique hotel located at 1501 W. Sahara Ave. (A 3 minute cab ride from the strip). It’s mannerism could blend very well in Miami. In a city filled with hotels lacking the intimacy and style of a true boutique hotel,The Sixty Room Artisan is by far, the most eclectic, unique, boutique hotel in Las Vegas. The lobby is reminiscent of Soho, while the bar-lounge is burlesque hip yet inviting while providing top service. If you are a fan of techno, the bar hosts live DJ’s every weekend. The restaurant went from average to good, back to average. However, since Siegel Suites purchased the property last year, I expect the restaurant to return to its old Italian glory days.

Veloce is a restaurant-lounge located on the top floor of the M Hotel and resort (12300 Las Vegas Blvd). Veloce offers a contemporary Italian menu as well as a roof top lounge that would be comfortable on Sunset Blvd.

As a Mack and Cheese addict, I must include a location that is not really off the beaten path, but has the best Mac and Cheese in town. Simon at Palms Place (Palms Place Hotel – 4381 W. Flamingo Rd.) is Chef Kerry Simon‘s follow up to his successful Simons Place at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. Same excellent comfort food wrapped in contemporary swagger, with a new, more impressive location.
