Three Square extends its annual dine-out fundraiser and LVLT wraps up Fringe Fest 2024

Through June 21

It’s more than two weeks long, but who's counting? Three Square surely is, hoping to use that time to raise some very critical dollars for feeding the food-insecure in Southern Nevada (which numbers one in eight residents). The concept is simple: Participating dining locations — more than 200 were on offer in 2023 — feature a separate prix fixe menu and a portion of your bill goes to Three Square, which then prepares meals for those who need them. The promotion provides the perfect excuse to return to some of your old favorite spots — or try some new ones.

Through June 16

Many cities have fringe festivals; this is the 13th year of the Las Vegas edition. There are two great entry points for the more casual or even rookie theatergoer: 1. Every show is 60 minutes long or less; and 2. every show is just 20 bucks. This year's lineup features both new and previously released plays, including works by well-known playwrights Sam Shepard and Samuel Beckett, as well as homegrown talent, such as Juliana Renee Martin. All are produced by different producers and theater companies, so variety will abound at the Fischer Black Box Theater!

There will be adult language and situations. All seating is general admission.

June 12-15

The United States’ most recent addition to the federal holiday calendar is Juneteenth, which, even before its official designation was considered “America’s Second Independence Day.” That’s because the holiday commemorates the end of slavery, as it finally occurred on June 19, 1865. Juneteenth events typically include a variety of activities, many of which will be available at the one produced (for the 23rd time) by the community organization Empowering People Igniting the Culture (E.P.I.C.). Specifically, food, live music, family activities, artisanal goods, and other Black cultural offerings will highlight the celebration

Before retiring as Yellowstone’s chief wolf biologist in 2022, Doug Smith spent nearly three decades reintroducing wolves to the national park. Once listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act, the gray wolf population gradually stabilized thanks to Smith’s watchful eye and hands-on approach, and their return helped balance the park’s ecosystem as a whole.

Classical music has evolved over the years for many reasons, one being its adaptability for hybridized genres. The success of Hauser (born Stjepan Hauser) is a testament to that, as the Croatian cellist has nimbly blended his pop and rock influences with his four-stringed companion over two decades. Local entertainment devotees may recognize him from his stint in Elton John’s backing band during the English superstar’s Million Dollar Piano residency at the Colosseum. Lately, he’s been touring arenas with a show that adds even more genre blends to the mix, including Latin and soundtrack music. Las Vegas will get a more intimate Hauser show at the 1,480-seat Encore Theater.
