MOST SUPER PARTIES GO PRIVATE

If you’re not at the big bash at Planet Hollywood (see Saber, p12) your best bet for Super fun is a local tavern. The parties set at Vegas resorts are mostly invitation only. Rio has a private party at the Pavilion, while its I-Bar and All-American Bar & Grill have affairs for a $75 cover. Plaza has a VIP party in its Showroom and a freebie at Aqua Pit. Hard Rock goes private at the Joint.
