Las Vegas is giving every other city a run for their money this year with some of the largest gay events. We are not sure this one can be topped. Gay Days, our favorite party of the year which is held in Orlando during the first week of June is doing it big in Las Vegas this year. They will feature pool parties at the Tropicana host hotel and lots of eye candy from LA, Vegas, and all over the world. They come together during gay pride weekend which is the weekend after Labor Day weekend.
The weekend after Labor Day weekend is a big weekend all over and you would not expect it to be. Normally in any city you see lines outside the club on the 18 and up nights because they go back to school and every knows that summer is over! Gay Days is bringing their name to Las Vegas and remember that what happens there (and you could say the same about Orlando) um well stays there.
Kathy Griffin, Margaret Cho, and all the gay go-go dancers will be in town. What else do you need? There will be so many events and pool parties you will not be able to keep up. We may be riding all over town trying to make them all because there is SO much going on. We plan on lots of red bulls for sure.
Gay Days Las Vegas will feature a 18+ Expo open to the public at the Tropicana Las Vegas in the Cohiba Ballroom. This will be everyday starting Thursday from 11 AM to 6 PM ending on Sunday (closes at 4pm the final day).
Gay Days Las Vegas Opening Party at Bagatelle Nightclub starting Thursday, September 6th. Thursday night at 10pm you could also get 30% off Aces of Comedy at The Mirage with Margaret Cho. That would be a great night to relax and have some laughs with our favorite Korean American jokester.
One interesting suite party going on during Gay Days Vegas is the “Aspen In Vegas VIP Suite” at the Tropicana Hotel. The Aspen VIP Suite will be a “cool” experience with snow, Aspen trees, music, swag, drink sampling and more. You can enjoy this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 3 PM to 7 PM.
