With the beginning of Memorial Day weekend, there are more pool party openings and hot summer specials.

The Hard Rock is rarely outdone for summer beach parties. Hard bodies and eye candy are everywhere on Sundays for "Rehab," a weekly fiesta that focuses on music, relaxation and rejuvenation from the exhausting pace of Vegas nightlife. Rehab begins at noon and runs until the sun sets or the crowd loses consciousness. Rehab offers an extensive liquor menu, an outdoor taco grill and mobile massages from the Rock Spa. Music styles range from jungle boogie to rock ”˜n roll. There is a cover charge of $30 for out-of- state men, $20 for local men and $15 for out-of-state women. Local ladies enjoy free admission.

In North Las Vegas, Uncle Angelo’s Pizza Joint located in Jerry’s Nugget is offering a free 60 oz. beer special. When you order any 20-inch pizza (with one or more toppings) or one of Uncle Angelo’s 20-inch specialty pizzas like the Chicken Presto, Famous Meat Lovers, Maui Wowie or The Nugget for $13, you will receive a free 60 oz. pitcher of Miller beer (a $6.25 value). The special is available Sundays, Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, from 3 p.m. to 11 p.m.

On the Strip, Wolfgang Puck’s Chinois, located inside the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace, has a new happy hour called "Happy Ending" from 5-7 p.m. Specials include $3 beer, $4 premium well drinks, $5 specialty drinks and a $10 bucket of two large Sapporos and one carafe of sake, as well as sushi and appetizers ranging from $2-$9.

The Wolfgang Puck Fine Dining Group also offers Las Vegas locals specials at all of its locations. "Compliments of the Chef," launched to better serve the needs of local patrons, offers priority seating at all five restaurants just for being a Las Vegas local. Other perks include priority reservations, no waiting, preferred seating and either a complimentary appetizer or dessert. The group operates Spago and Chinois (Forum Shops), Trattoria del Lupo (Mandalay Bay), Postrio (Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian) and the Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill (MGM Grand).
