In May, there are many upcoming events we’re anticipating, including a pop-up sports lounge, the Scholar in Residence’s lecture, Majestic Repertory Theatre’s latest production and new Italian dishes at a local favorite.
“Crimson at Knight” Pop-Up Sports Lounge
Debuting on Friday, May 7, Red Rock Resort and Vegas Golden Knights unveil an immersive (21 years +) sports pop-up lounge, “Crimson at Knight.” The entrance way will be decorated in the likeness of the Knight helmet down an ice hallway leading aficionados into the “Fortress.” Snap photos with a life-size Fleury goalie for your social feeds, “Golden Misfits” can order an icy “Beer & Seltzer” party tub of 24 beers and seltzers.
Two specialty cocktails will be available: “The Frosted Puck,” made with Jack Daniels, sugar, angostura bitters and applewood smoke; and “The Fleury,” crafted with Grey Goose Essences Strawberry and Lemongrass, lemon and Bud Light Lemonade. The puck drops at Crimson on Friday, May 7 and the Knight lounge will be running every Friday and Saturday starting at 6 p.m. through July. The lounge will open one hour prior to all Golden Knights games. Go Knights Go!
