Halfway to Halloween Parties in Las Vegas

Look down the Strip and many will swear Halloween is everyday in Sin City.  Now, though, Las Vegas is hosting a couple of  “Halfway to Halloween Parties,” where people are being encouraged (?) to morph into naughty nurses, sexy vampires, or whatever purient interest happens to suit their demanted fantasy.

And it’s not just for fun and games- the winner of the most seductive costume pockets $5,000.  (That can pay for a whole lot of psychological counseling!)  Besides, the winner is not selected using some fancy schmantzy algorithm, but rather merely  from the most oohs and aahs of onlookers.  So, bring all your rowdy friends and maybe you can pull off the ultimate economy-busting coup.

The event is at Blush nightlcub in Wynn tonight, Tues., April 20, at 9 p.m.; $30 for dudes, free for dudettes.

But if you can’t make it to that event, you’re welcome to join former “Girls Next Door” star Bridget Marquardt -Hugh Hefner’s old fling; now her boyfriend is Nicolas Carpenter – as she hosts “Halfway to Halloween” at Eva Longoria Parker’s luxurious nightclub, Eve, this Sat., April 24.  

 Known for her love of playing dress up, Marquardt will host a sexy and scary costume party for those who don’t want to wait another six months to strut their stuff in costume. 

For those ready to go all out in the springtime spirit of Halloween, Eve will reward the top three costumes with $3,000 in cash prizes.  For VIP bottle service and table reservations please contact reservations@evethenightclub.com or call 702-277-3838. Doors open at 10:30 p.m. 

Sponsored by Nevada’s largest costume retailer, HalloweenMart (HalloweenMart.com), guests will enjoy 10% off their costumes when they use the promotional code “Eve” at the store (on South Decatur Blvd. just south of Russell Road), or on the website. 

Parker’s opulent nightclub Eve is located directly above her celebrated steakhouse, Beso, in Crystals at CityCenter. Eve is open Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 10:30 p.m. to close.

Actress Eva Longoria Parker Shows Her Stuff on Stripper Pole

Actress and frequent Las Vegas partier Eva Longoria Parker gave comedian pal and Las Vegas imbiber George Lopez a thrill of a lifetime on his new late-night TV show on Monday– by slithering seductively on a stripper pole! EvaLangoriaParker

The Desperate Housewives star told Lopez she’d show off the pole dancing skills that Carmen Electra had taught her if the pilot of his programme, Lopez Tonight!, got picked up. 

And when the Latino funnyman debuted on Monday, sure enough sexy Longoria Parker fulfilled her promise. 

Dressed in a sparkly black mini-dress and sporting a new blonde look, the actress shrieked when she realised Lopez had a pole set up on his stage, insisting she wasn’t dressed appropriately, joking, “You’re gonna see my hoo-ha.” 

But the game actress made a valiant attempt, revealing it was more successful than the one she had tried at home on St. Valentine’s Day. 

“Carmen Electra is a friend of mine and she has these stripper poles that she sells, so she sent me a stripper pole for Valentine’s,” said Parker. 

“I set it up myself… and I was trying to do the sexy dance for Valentine’s and I got on it to swing and I went `whack’ and I fell, so I never really got to do it.” 

Proving that her business skills are just as finely honed as her slick pole dancing abilities, the actress plans to follow her upcoming promotional TV campaign with Dutch beer giants Heineken, by launching her second Mexican eatery, Beso, in Las Vegas on New Year’s Eve 2010 and then branch out the yummy brand to airports across America, starting with L.A.’s LAX. 

Her first Beso restaurant was opened in Los Angeles in 2008.
