FREE Fun in Las Vegas: 4-Letter Friday

FREE fun things to do this week-end in Las Vegas.

It’s cold and rainy, a rarity here in Las Vegas. So this week I am going to showcase FREE indoor things to do. At least it will be back to 70 on Sunday before the next snowy storm hits.

Music and dancing always make me happy when skies are gray. Here are some options.

Live Music at the Luxor

I love the Luxor Las Vegas. The Pyramid has always intrigued me. I loved taking the Pharoah’s boat ride around the casino, long gone.

But a new, hip addition is the Centra bar. The site has FREE live music on Fridays and Saturdays. And it is open.

The bar is called Centra because it’s literally at the center of the casino floor. If you’re coming from the parking garage or from the main casino entrance, just head toward the middle of the casino and you will see it.

Colorful glass lights (the first thing a serial remodeler like me notices!) give the place a soft glow. You can play video poker or slots at the bar or watch sports on the wall of TVs. There’s a kewl 1920’s gold couch for hangin’ out.

The bar opens at 4 pm and closes at 2 am.

Gleam by Amal

Amal Nappa is a 24-year-old music producer in Silver Spring, Maryland. The Egyptian-born musician just produced Gleam, a four-minute electronic piece that will get you thinking. (He calls enjoying this song “glistening.”)

The song arrived on the FREE Bandcamp app on March 9.

He describes the sounds the best: Remain potent. Overcome everything.

This song was just what I needed as I watched hail hit my patio.

Attend a Sing-Along from Carnegie Hall

Singer-songwriter Emily Eagen invites guest artists from around the world to join her in a singalong.

The program is designed from young children. But during this forever pandemic, I find it cathartic to sing along … loudly!

Tomorrow’s show features Grammy-nominated musician Falu, who introduces us to the rhythms of India. Guest musician Deep Singh joins her.

I spent three weeks in India in 2010. Best food ever. But I digress.

The live show happens every Saturday morning at 10 am eastern, which is an ungodly 7 am here. Luckily, each show is available at this site so you can watch at a more reasonable time.


The live show is on both Facebook and YouTube. Here is the Facebook link: https://www.facebook.com/carnegiehall

Food Truck Frenzy

I hope the weather hasn’t cancelled this week-end’s Food Truck Frenzy event hosted by your favorite taxing authority, Clark County Parks and Recreation, along with Food Truck Frenzy and Exa 97.4 FM.

A host of food trucks gather ’round from 2-6 pm. The admission is FREE but you do have to pay for the food.

Hot Diggity Dog will be there, serving Nathan’s hot dogs and beer brats. Cactus Jack’s Outlaw Grill, Alpha Dawg and Auntie Annie’s are supposed to be there too.

Here is the schedule:

Thursdays: Mountain Crest Community Center

Fridays: Mountains Edge Community Center

Saturdays: Desert Breeze Park

Sundays: Sunset Park (McLeod entrance)

If you want to walk off your food in Sunset Park, here is a link to my blog about the trails there: https://offthevegasstrip.com/free-fun-in-las-vegas-4-letter-friday-70/

P.S. You can go sledding up at Mt. Charleston, but you will need chains on your tires.

Have a great week-end, Las Vegas!
