“Enjoy an Unforgettable Evening Dining & Dancing Under the Stars” By Sandy Zimmerman
I was invited to review “Sax under the Stars”, a spectacular event at Club 172, (Rio All-Suites Hotel) that transports you back into the era of early Las Vegas, the time of Fred Astaire, the time when women wore evening gowns while men donned their top hats, ties and tuxedos. This elegant atmosphere is paired with gourmet upscale cuisine designed to thrill your taste buds.
When I came to Las Vegas in the 80’s, we had supper clubs, live music, dancing, no cover or minimum lounge acts, and socials but not now.
Sharen Black, “Sax under the Stars” Producer”, wants to bring back the big band sound with the well-known saxophonist “Sid the Kid” and a 9 piece band. Sharen commented, “We have jazz, Glenn Miller songs like “In the Mood” and also some special ballroom dancers here tonight.”
“Sax under the Stars” is a BI-MONTHLY charity event with dining and dancing at the Club 172 (Rio All-Suites Hotel), today’s version of the supper clubs of the past. Club 172 is unique as one of the few if not the only place with a retractable roof where you enjoy the added pleasure of dining and dancing under the stars! How romantic!
Sharon feels the need to assist 4th grade students in learning how to succeed for their future. The chosen Fourth Grade Cotillion students will have five weeks of training in etiquette and ballroom dancing and then will “show off” what they have learned at a Dinner/Dance on November 9 at the Club 172 at the Rio Hotel and Casino. There will be no cost to the students and all students will be given tuxedos and party dresses to wear to the event. Instructors will be dance professionals from the Las Vegas community and instructors who have conducted Cotillions from Kansas City and Las Vegas.
A portion of ticket proceeds will benefit the Fourth Grade Cotillion, a five-part class benefitting 50 Fourth Grade students by teaching etiquette, good manners, common courtesy, and commitment to gracious behavior. In addition, ballroom dancing will be taught by professional instructors from dance studios in Las Vegas.
Sax Under the Stars continues every 2nd Saturday until December. Formal length dresses, white tie & tails preferred. Tickets are available online for $120 per person, and at the door for $140. Limited seating available; to book your reservation, call 702-514-0488 or visit saxunderthestars.com. *Vegan dinner options available.
