1. Rod Stewart is back for another run in The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. He will be there until May 17. The singer also recently announced 18 more shows at Caesars this fall.

A sing-along to the movie version will take place at 8:30 p.m. May 3 at the Tropicana's pool. Free admission with 2-item food donation. Benefit for Three Square Food Bank. Special guests and prizes.

12. Culinary Dropout at the Hard Rock Hotel is hosting a five-course craft beer pairing dinner highlighting signature brews from Las Vegas' Joseph James Brewery on May 8. Cost is only $50 per person, which is a pretty good price for a full dinner and good beer.
