Guide highlights

FourplayHow smooth and seductive is  Fourplay’s  jazz? It’s like a cashmere-and-champagne bubble bath for your ears. In the morning, it even leaves a rose on the pillow and a Starbucks gift card. Oh, baby. This is love. Fourplay performs 8 p.m. Nov. 3 at UNLV’s Artemus Ham Hall. Tickets $13-$55. Info:

If you’ve lived in Las Vegas for more than a year, you know well that our fall season lasts approximately 4.7 minutes, wedged between mind-melting summer and gusty, bone-cracking winter. Better yet, savor the brief season indoors at the  Bellagio Conservatory’s  fall display, a wine-themed harvest thang featuring a real vintage wine press, cider mill and, that staple of any harvest scene, a tree with an eerie old-man face. It’s on display through Nov. 24 at the Bellagio hotel-casino. Info:

Tickets $24-$59. Info:
