Check out the calendar-making festivities happening this month

By Melissa Gill

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!

“Hot Trash” at Majestic Repertory Theatre

Looking for some sexy entertainment with a twist? “Hot Trash” is a risque, avante-garde production set up in the likeness of a 1970s Times Square peep show with cabaret vibes. Guests will watch a variety of steamy performances from behind a plexiglass window. Sizzling acts will be performed by former “Voice” contestant, Sophia Urista, Vegas performer from “Opium,” Isabella Schleiker and many more. The show will open on Tuesday, May 4th and run from Tuesday to Thursday with showings at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m.. “Hot Trash” will be 60 minutes without an intermission.
