Well, it’s finally here… SEPTEMBER!
The kids are back in school, the pumpkin spice latte will arrive on the scene any minute to the screams of fans as fervently dedicated to seasonal coffee as teenagers once were to The Beatles and here in Las Vegas our famously extreme heat will take a chill pill and give way to a few more months of perfect summery weather while the rest of the country digs their scarves and boots from the back of their closets.
SEPTEMBER, I LOVE YOU.
With the weather cooling off enough for us to begin emerging from our air-conditioned burrows there’s so much to do it can be easy to miss something. If you're like me keeping up with these local events often amounts to driving by the billboard for something the day after it happens and wailing,
“AWWWWWW, that would have been fun! WHY DIDN’T I FIND OUT SOONER?!?”
So here I am going to do my best each month to make sure that doesn’t happen to you by rounding up as many cool events as I can sniff out.
Here we go:
Saturday September 1st-Sunday 8th
Sat Sep 1:
ROCKFEST and fireworks show at Palace Station
Palace Station just completed a massive renovation and is celebrating with a free party and fireworks show including some awesome rock cover bands. The renovations look really awesome and even though Stations has doubled the price of their famous bargain margaritas they are still a bang for your buck at just $2.
Thurs Sep 6th- Sun 9th
BIG BLUES BENDER FESTIVAL at The Plaza Hotel
This premium blues festival attracts blues lovers from all over the globe for 4 days of blues performances downtown at The Plaza and has sold out the last few years running.
Thurs Sep 6th:
MAIN STREET LIGHTS UP BLOCK PARTY
After almost 4 long years of work the construction on Main St has finally been completed ringing in a new era for the up and coming Arts District and they are throwing a block party to celebrate. I'm not missing this one.
