21 Things to Do In Las Vegas This Weekend After Dark

LIGHT Nightclub reopens, George Strait performs at T-Mobile Arena and Gucci Mane celebrates his birthday at Drai's Nightclub

If this is what it’s like when the Super Bowl is not in Las Vegas, we may not be able to handle what happens a couple of years from now. L.A. may have the American football game on Sunday, but our city gets to have all the fun.

From club headliners to concert residencies, here are 21 things to do after dark this weekend.

DANCE: Hakkasan Nightclub’s American football festivities kick off tonight with “Do It To It” artist Acraze taking his turn in the DJ booth. 10:30 p.m., $25-$40, events.taogroup.com

And DJ Vice provides the soundtrack for the industry Valentine’s celebration “Girls Don’t Cry” at Zouk Nightclub. 10:30 p.m., $20-$30, zoukgrouplv.com
