On Saturday night, Grammy-winning star Pink and other half and former motocross star Carey Hart checked out Caesars Palace to check out “Absinthe.” “Thank you for the laughs, my stomach hurts!” Instagrammed the vocalist after the program. She’ll be back for a second tour stop at T-Mobile Arena on Might 26.

While he was in town last week to perform a solo show at your home of Blues, Korn frontman Jonathan Davis checked in at the Hard Rock Hotel to help unveil a new souvenirs case to add to the resort’s collection of musical relics.

. In 2015 at this time, NBA terrific Magic Johnson was in town to speak at the yearly Global Video gaming Exposition, predicting major league sports success for Las Vegas. He’s back on the Strip this week to be honored ahead of the preseason video game in between the Los Angeles Lakers and Golden State Warriors at T-Mobile Arena Wednesday, hosting the Magic Johnson’s Showtime pop-up concert tonight at 9 p.m. at Mandalay Bay Beach. Snoop Dogg will carry out together with a few surprise visitors. On Wednesday, Mayor Carolyn Goodman will declare October 10 Magic Johnson Day in the city of Las Vegas and offer the point guard-turned-entertainment magnate a key to the city. (UPDATE: The Mandalay performance and celebration has actually been held off.)

Flashing back to the action-packed weekend (and if you were anywhere around T-Mobile Arena for Saturday’s chaotic UFC occasion, possibly there was a little excessive action): On Friday, golf enthusiast Rory Mcllroy celebrated his Group Europe Ryder Cup win with dinner and fun at Tao Bar at the Venetian. Rapper French Montana dined with “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star Scott Disick at Tao Saturday night before Montana’s Marquee Bar efficiency at the Cosmopolitan. Montana had actually already partied at Drai’s Bar Friday night with NBA names Paul Pierce and Trevor Ariza as Migos carried out the first of two nights at the club. And naturally, superstars ranging from stars Matt Damon and Chris Pratt to artists Anthony Kiedis and Drake (who loaded MGM Grand Garden Friday and Saturday nights) were found at the fight, ideally avoiding any physical contact.

A true web sensation hit the Strip this weekend, too. On Sunday, Turkish chef, butcher and restaurateur Nusret Gökçe– you know him as Salt Bae– stopped in at the Cosmopolitan’s streamlined Japanese izakaya Zuma for an unforgettable meal and was certainly celebrated by the dining establishment’s personnel. Did trendy spices ensue? Most likely.

New york city City mezcal and tequila bar Ghost Donkey opened its Vegas version there over the weekend, serving specialized crafted cocktails and a comprehensive collection of Mexican spirits together with unique nachos topped with wild mushrooms, black truffles, chorizo and tripe stew and more.

Star Jonathan Bennett is best understood for playing Aaron Samuels in the 2004 motion picture “Mean Girls” and he’s still milking it … or, in the case of what took place Sunday at the Style Program mall, milkshaking it. Bennett was at Sugar Factory American Brasserie signing copies of his new “The Burn Cookbook” (like the motion picture’s “Burn Book,” in case you forgot) with co-writer Nikki Martin from “Food Network Star.” He tested the Twinkie Dinkie shake and signature Rainbow Sliders in between signing sessions.

Esports Arena Las Vegas, the first dedicated esports venue on the Strip opened 6 months earlier at Luxor, was named Venue of the Year recently at the inaugural Tempest Esports Business Awards, which are designed to recognize the industry’s most innovative business and executives. The arena hosted the awards event, part of the Esports Service Summit.

It’s that time of the year: The ladies of “Dream” will debut their 2019 calendar on Thursday, October 11, to accompany the 19th anniversary of the burlesque revue at Luxor. The new calendar has a “golden goddess” style as the program collaborated with style professional photographer and stylist Oscar Picazo, the guy behind The Black Tape Job, for images including the cast dressed in absolutely nothing however gold tape. A portion of the profits from the sale of each calendar benefits Keep Memory Alive in memory of the fantastic Robin Leach.
