Yay! Now that Halloween has passed (and I hope yours was great), it’s officially the holiday season. Why wait until after Thanksgiving to celebrate? I say the holidays begin on November 1st. Many holiday-themed parties and events occur this month, not to mention all those AWESOME sales. So, get in the spirit now and take advantage of the cheer that is spreading.
Join in the fun and start your Christmas shopping today. And while you’re at it, do a little shopping for yourself, too. Here are the best sales, special offers, and stylish events happening in Las Vegas during November. Have an amazing Thanksgiving!

And while you’re on a speakeasy kick, stop by The Mob Museum and visit the “Ready to Roar” temporary exhibition of Prohibition-Era fashion and culture. Opening November 4th, in partnership with UNLV’s Public History Program, the exhibit is designed to illustrate the impact the Prohibition Era had on not only women’s fashions, but also their social, political and economic freedoms. “Ready to Roar” will be on view until February 2017. Included among the items to be displayed will be an array of authentic dresses and accessories from the 1920s and early 1930s that demonstrate the different styles that evolved during the era.
