Hot things to do this winter in Vegas - Backstreet Boys performing "You are my fire..."

We can already feel our temperatures rising. The Backstreet Boys return to Las Vegas on Jan. 31. Photo courtesy of Caesars Entertainment.

Backstreet Boys 

Back-street’s back, al-right! If anyone can heat up the chilly winter weather, it’s these guys. Especially when they start singing, You are my fire…  from their smash hit, “I Want It That Way.” See the most successful boy band of all time, the Backstreet Boys, take the stage at the Zappos Theater inside Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. Sing along to their biggest hits like “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back),” “Quit Playing Games (With My Heart)” and “All I Have To Give,” among many others. And what’s a Backstreet Boys show without all the fun choreographed moves? They still got it goin’ on.


Stage fright? You better believe Chippendales at Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino will melt all of those fears away. Plus, these handsome fellas can dance. Each scene gives us vibes of a steamy music video and if you’re lucky, you might just get pulled up on stage. Don’t worry — the boys may be playful, but they keep it proper for sure. And if you’re wondering what Chippendales has to do with this fire theme we have going, just look at their abs honey.

fiery Hot Looks 

Get a fiery hot new look from COLOR: Caesars Palace Hair Salon in Las Vegas

Psst… here’s the secret to looking hot in Vegas. It’s all about COLOR Salon. Photo courtesy of Caesars Entertainment.

If you’re attending any of these hot shows, you gotta show them what a hot mama you are. Head to COLOR Salon by Michael Boychuck inside Caesars Palace. Need inspiration? The “shadow root” or “rooty blonde” are huge celebrity looks right now, as seen on Selena Gomez and Kim Kardashian. In this process, colorists highlight, hand paint and add dimension throughout the entire head and overlay a “shadow” on the roots. You’ll leave with gorgeous, lived-in color that blends effortlessly. Another plus? It’s easy to maintain and you’ll only need minimal touch-ups (which makes it easier when you’re back home).

Top you look with either a matte to glitter trans-formative lip sticks or glosses, which are other huge trends for 2018.

fiery Hot restaurants and bars  

Hell’s Kitchen

Things heat up at Gordon Ramsay’s fifth Vegas restaurant location. HELL’S KITCHEN at Caesars Palace is a delight for fans of the show and foodies alike. Modeled just like the reality TV show, HELL’S KITCHEN comes complete with the Red and Blue kitchens, two chef tables and seating for 300 guests.

You’ll enjoy everything like Wagyu meatballs, lobster risotto, roasted cauliflower and much more. Prix-fixe menus are also available if you want a bit of everything. And from what we read, HELL’S KITCHEN already has thousands of reservations in the short time that it’s been open. So you better get your seat.

Order a fiery cocktail, Smoke on the Blvd at Hell's Kitchen

Bonus: While you’re here, order Smoke on the Blvd., made with Woodford Rye, Aperol, Amoro Averna, sweet Vermouth and smoked with cherry wood. (Smoky counts as fire, right?)

Make your whole body warm, order the Spicy Fifty at Bound in The Cromwell

Nothing heats up the night like a red-hot chili pepper in your drink. Head to The Cromwell’s Bound bar and order the Spicy Fifty, made with Stoli Vanil vodka, elderflower syrup, fresh lime juice, honey syrup and chili pepper.

cool down with year-round pools

We’ve been talking about all these fire-related topics, so we’re going to wrap it up with a cool down session. Swimming in winter? Really? Believe it or not, this is a real thing in Vegas. It may be winter but if you’re from the colder parts of the country, 50 to 60 degrees Fahrenheit is a walk in the park. Venus Pool at Caesars Palace, The Pool at The LINQ, and Paris Las Vegas’ Soleil Pool are all open year round. Plus, it’s great bragging rights on social media for all your friends who are freezing back home.

About The Author

I live for a crazy Vegas adventure, but not in ways you may think. Sure, our nightlife scene is all fun and dandy, but I love hitting up all the city's vegan spots, having staycations and catching shows by my favorite musical acts. Since I've ditched rainy Seattle 20+ years ago, I graduated from UNLV and covered Las Vegas hotel and entertainment articles for, the LA Times, Frommer's and our very own Total Vegas Blog. When I'm not writing, you'll find me hanging with my two girls, along with our shih-tzu and tiger cat.

    Hello Jeannie, it states in your bio that you are well versed with the vegan options around town. My girlfriend is a vegan and she’ll be traveling with me for my 25th, any good restaurants or food outlets you can reccommend that’ll be a good experience? Also, my group right now consists of ten people. Five guys and five girls, do you still suggest splitting up and trying to get in faster with a group of girls. Any advice is greatly appreciated thanks in advance.

    Hi, Nathaniel! Check out my vegan guide I’ve written for Total Vegas Blog:

    There are plenty of places in town that serve vegan-friendly or strictly vegan. What do you have in mind and I can help with more specifics?

    Hello, Nathaniel! As far as splitting up into groups, you always have to make sure the ratio of girls to guys is more, then you should be OK. Check out my nightclub tips blog:
