FREE Fun in Las Vegas: 4-Letter Friday

Want to attend the day club at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino this week-end? FREE?????

There are a lot of exclamation points because typically these pool parties are spendy. No, REALLY spendy. I have never seen FREE to anyone who is not a whale. So this is a big deal.

Look who you will meet at the Breathe pool party tomorrow!

Here’s why: Back in the Rat Pack days, gaming was THE reason to come to Las Vegas. Today, activities at the casino pools is the No.1 reason people come to Las Vegas, according to the Las Vegas Visitors and Convention Authority. Las Vegas has borrowed from the Ibiza, Spain scene. The world’s big name DJs spin tunes poolside.

This week-end everything happens at the Breathe Pool Lounge. Carlos Melange is the DJ tomorrow and Ammo is the DJ Sunday.

The Palms just opened Kaos, it’s new day/night pool club. I’m assuming the Hard Rock doesn’t want us to forget its there. Remember, the Hard Rock started the madness with its Rehab pool parties.

The pool opens at 11 am. And since alcohol is a big part of these parties, you do have to be 21 to attend.

The pool party at the Hard Rock

I did say, incredulously, admission is FREE?

I, personally, am too old to wear a bathing suit. For folks not into the pool DJ scene, head out to Henderson a fun history lesson. Recalling Industrial Days celebrates Henderson’s Heritage.

The Recalling Industrial Days festival in Henderson

The festival transforms the Henderson Events Plaza into a time machine. The goal: to recognize each era from the year of Henderson’s incorporation (1953) to today. The name of the festival puts the spotlight on Henderson’s industrial past. Most people know about Henderson’s World War II effort. But did you know the Ocean Spray processing plant is here? What would Thanksgiving be without cranberries?

The best part for me: cars from 1950-1980. I owned many of them! They were gor-geous.

The Henderson Events Plaza packs ’em in.

There’s also a $500 grand prize for the decades costume contest. There’s a prize for each of the four decades from 1950s to 1980s. (Note to self: raid closet because I refuse to give away clothes even though I could NEVER get into ’em.)

Come to line dance. The line dance lessons are FREE too. Live bands strike up the music at 4. Sierra Black performs at 8:15.

And there’s a FREE barbecue dinner with the Mayor and the City Council at 5:30. That is, until the hamburgers run out!

Happens tomorrow from noon to 10. FREE!

Either way, these are quintessential Las Vegas happenings. Have a great week-end, Las Vegas.
