Cherry to Re-Open This Summer at Red Rock

LAS VEGAS – Red Rock Resort is gearing up for summer with an entertainment lineup that includes the return of the 22,000 square foot indoor/outdoor CHERRY nightclub, Red Rock Cabana Club pool parties and the newly expanded Red Rock Casino Amphitheatre.

Beginning May 25 over Memorial Weekend through October, “CHERRY Nightclub: Summer Affair” will open its doors every Friday and Saturday night at 10 p.m. to offer a sexy and seductive nightlife experience in Summerlin. CHERRY is known for its dramatic entrance through a long mirrored tunnel intended to replicate the stem of a cherry that leads out onto the main dance floor and club as guests are surrounded by electric red leather walls and translucent crimson glass doors in an intimate oval shaped venue.

Cherry Nightclub: Summer Affair will be an indoor/outdoor nightlife experience as the venue features floor-to-ceiling glass walls where the club’s dance floor pours out to its own pool deck with outdoor lounge areas and a glowing onyx stone bar. The nightclub will feature some of today’s top DJ’s playing a dynamic mix of vocal house, rock and pop mash ups and Top 40 mixes. Exclusive VIP booths and tables will be available starting at $200 and reservations are highly recommended by calling 702-797-7300.

Senior Vice President of Station Casinos LLC and General Manager of Red Rock Resort Mark Dunkeson said the decision to reopen CHERRY as a seasonal nightclub came as a result of feedback by local residents who wanted a late night high energy nightlife experience within the resort/casino. “We want Red Rock Resort to be the obvious choice for weekend and late-night entertainment this summer,” said Dunkeson. “We’re increasing the amount of amphitheatre concerts and are bringing back our exclusive day-club pool parties on weekends to round out the summer entertainment offerings,” he said.

The nightclub will be hiring for seasonal positions including bartenders, VIP beverage servers, bussers, porters and hosts. Apply now, prior to attending the job fair, online at www.stationcasinos and click on “careers”. Applicants must attend a job fair inside CHERRY nightclub on April 17 and 18 between 3 p.m. and 8 p.m.

Sunset Station to Host Rockin’ Fundraiser for St. Baldrick’s


LAS VEGAS – Club Madrid at Sunset Station will host a signature St. Baldrick’s head-shaving event, which benefits pediatric cancer research, on Friday, March 16 at 9 p.m., and the public is invited. Among the volunteers for head shaving: Sin City Sinners, who perform at Sunset Station’s Club Madrid every Friday night at 10 p.m. and “Big Mex” from KOMP 92.3. The event holds personal significance to “Big Mex,” who is a father of three, and Brent Muscat from Sin City Sinners who is both a parent and cancer survivor.

Before the concert, featuring self-penned originals and rock and roll covers from Sin City Sinners, the clippers will come out! Brent Muscat from the group, who is known for his many years on the music scene as founding guitarist for Hollywood legends Faster Pussycat in addition to his time with Sin City Sinners, will have his iconic long hair shaved. Team members of Sunset Station also losing their locks include Slot Manager Will Provance and Casino Host Mervin Siquia, a parent expecting his second child whose cousin lost a son to Leukemia. This is in addition to members from the KOMP 92.3 “Big Mex” team. Celebrities who will be on hand for the event include Carlos Cavazo of Quiet Riot and Eric Dover  of Slash’s Snakepit and Alice Cooper.

As of the release date, more than $6,100 has been raised for the event. More donations are expected to come from both the community and a fundraising auction at Club Madrid, held by “Big Mex,” on  March 9 at 10 p.m.

Worldwide, more than 160,000 children are diagnosed with cancer each year, and it remains the leading cause of death by disease among children in the United States. With only 4 percent of all federal cancer research funding dedicated to pediatric cancer research, St. Baldrick’s Foundation grant funds are critical to continue the battle against this devastating disease.

All ages are welcome at the event and show, tickets are not needed and admission is free. However, space is limited, so an early arrival is suggested. More details about the event are available at http://www.stbaldricks.org/events/mypage/8231/2012, about Sunset Station: http://www.sunsetstation.com/entertainment/club-madrid/weekly/ and Sin City Sinners: http://thesincitysinners.com/.

Fire Bet Hot at Station And Fiesta Casinos

LAS VEGAS – All Station Casinos and Fiesta properties are now offering the most popular craps side bet in the country: the Fire Bet, a side wager that can be made in conjunction with the operation of a standard casino Craps game, with all other house rules remaining the same. Locations include Aliante Station, Boulder Station, Fiesta Henderson, Fiesta Rancho, Green Valley Ranch resort, Palace Station, Red Rock Resort, Santa Fe Station, Sunset Station and Texas Station.

Guests may make a wager up to $5 on this side bet before the first “come out” roll of a new shooter. A Fire Bet cannot be taken down or “called off” once the shooter has established an initial point.

The Fire Bet is based on the number of distinct points the shooter successfully makes before “sevening out.” Repeated points count only once and points do not have to be in any specific order. Winning or losing on the “come out” roll will not affect this side bet. Only “sevening out” or successfully making all six distinct points will terminate the bet. Markers keep track of each “individual point” that the shooter has successfully made. The highest payoff level for six distinct points is 1,000 to 1.
