By Sara In AZ
Hey all you retro lovin’ Guys and Dolls! I just got word of the hip happenings in Las Vegas this weekend – so you know I just had to let y’all in on the action too. Check it out – a full weekend of fun, mid-century style, how could anything be more perfect! Here is some information on the Mondo Lounge weekend.
Don Draper and Fans of Mad Men will feel right at home in Las Vegas on October 22-23. The Mondo Lounge weekend brings to life the music, style and fashion of the Mad Men era at the Palms Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas from October 22nd through 24th.
Mondo Lounge is the Ultimate Retro Party and Conference. The event is themed around the lifestyle and culture of Americana from 1957 to 1963 and will bring together fans of Mid Century Modern architecture, retro fashion, tiki, pin-ups, exotica music, Atomic Age cocktails, bachelor pad living, ballroom dance and the vintage Vegas Rat Pack vibe. There will be plenty of vendors, exhibits, live music and hopefully you!
The in-person host of the weekend is highly collectible and popular fine artist SHAG(aka Josh Agle).
The entertainment will range from sophisticated jazz combos and vintage fashion shows to Sinatra-styled magic, from dancing girls and DJs to Vargas! (unanimously named the top Las Vegas lounge performers by AOL Citiguide, Las Vegas Life Magazine, and Vegas.com.) Attendees will even be treated to free Ballroom dance classes so they, too can be Dancing with the Stars!
Mondo Lounge rounds out with a Pinup Pool Party and fun exhibits such as a hands on display of vintage 1950s Playboy Magazines and a vast array of vintage shopping from vendors with ephemera, new and vintage clothes, pop art prints, collectibles, music and more…
