Celebrities Stop ‘Rain’ from Falling in Parched Las Vegas

In another sign of our belt-tightening economy, Las Vegas Review Journal entertainment journalist NormFloydMayweather Clarke reports that the Las Vegas phenomena of “raining” – celebrities and the uber-rich engaging in the clubbing practices of champagne spraying and cash-tossing of large amounts of their money into the air inside of nightclubs – is rapidly waning.  One of the top “rain men,” boxing champion Floyd Mayweather, Jr. who used to show up in Las Vegas Strip clubs and rain stacks of cash, $10,000 to $20,000 a pop per week, hasn’t been seen for weeks.  “Vegas is drying up,” said Branden Powers, a partner and director of marketing at Poetry nightclub (formerly OPM) at the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. “December was off 25-40 percent on most nights,” Powers said.
