The Las Vegas edition of Eataly, a retail and dining hybrid dedicated to Italian cuisine, always seems to have cool events on the calendar, including special tastings, dinners, and classes. The regular Market Tours are an incredible deal at $35-50. Guests are guided through Eataly's stations and departments, enjoying samples of meats, pizza, cheeses (including fresh-pulled mozzarella), desserts, and wine while learning about the sourcing and secrets behind the dishes. Come hungry.
Legally smoke weed in public at NuWu
Now that recreational cannabis is legal in Nevada, Las Vegas is loaded with dispensaries. Count Planet 13, The+Source, Acres, The Dispensary, Apothecary Shoppe, Thrive, and Essence among our favorites. However, NuWu is the only one that has a lounge for on-site consumption -- an important detail, since it's still illegal to use outside a private home. (And yes, hotel rooms are off-limits, too.) NuWu is able to have the only lounge in Nevada because it's on Paiute tribal land and has more leeway in determining its own laws. A large selection and drive-thru window doesn't hurt either. NuWu also hosted the first publicly ticketed cannabis-infused dinner in the country late last year with more similar events expected in the future.
