Taste, temptation and thrilling entertainment will be at the forefront when Fabulous Las Vegas returns to Sin City September 3-8. Now in its fourth year, this one-of-a-kind LGBT celebration will feature experiences and promotions across several MGM Resorts International destinations, complementing the citywide Las Vegas PRIDE events also taking place that week.
Fabulous kicks off Wednesday, Sept. 4 with PRIDE Family Bingo at Circus Circus Las Vegas. Hosted by Norma Llyaman and Miss Las Vegas PRIDE 2011 Diana Prince, guests will enjoy an evening of food, fun and flair while supporting the Southern Nevada Association of PRIDE, Inc. (SNAPI).
After daubing out the competition at bingo, guests can travel down The Strip for two nights of fearless stand-up comedy at The Mirage with a pair of LGBT icons. Stand-up queen Margaret Cho (September 6) and two-time Emmy Award-winner Kathy Griffin (September 7) give guests reason to laugh with rapid fire wit and comedic edge that pushes the limits. Additional entertainment options include Cirque du Soleil’s Zarkana at ARIA, and its most sensual show, Zumanity at New York-New York. Guests booking any of these entertainment options through the Fabulous website will receive access to special seating and pricing.
In addition to this buffet of entertainment offerings, guest can eat fabulously with the exclusive Dine OUT program at participating restaurants up and down the Las Vegas Strip. Through Dine OUT, guests receive 20 percent off their check when presenting their Fabulous hotel key card. The new 24-hour Citizens Kitchen & Bar and Red Square Restaurant and Vodka Lounge at Mandalay Bay are sure to turn on taste buds. Other Dine OUT venues include STACK Restaurant & Bar at The Mirage, The Pub at Monte Carlo and Rice & Company at Luxor, plus more to be added soon.
Nothing quite sends off the celebration like Temptation Sundays, the city’s original and longest-running LGBT pool party, hosted by J.Son. As the official closing party for the Las Vegas PRIDE festivities, Temptation Sundays invites guests to spend a warm Sunday afternoon socializing with locals, splashing around in the water, or simply showing off tempting assets. Guests can party until the sun rises again at REVO Sundays at Revolution Lounge at The Mirage, as the grand finale for the Fabulous weekend takes precedence over slumber. The only year-round LGBT party in a nightclub on The Strip, REVO pumps up the bass for locals and tourists for a night of dancing, flirting and celebration.
During Fabulous, guests are invited to participate in additional citywide LGBT celebrations: Las Vegas PRIDE Festival’s Annual PRIDE Night Parade on September 6 and the Annual PRIDE Festival on September 7 at the Clark County Government Center. MGM Resorts International is the proud presenting sponsor of the PRIDE Night Parade, granting Fabulous guests with a branded key card entry to the Fabulous Viewing Area to mix and mingle with other attendees. Transportation will be provided to and from the participating MGM Resorts hotels to the parade
