1 - Wine Amplified Weekend Returns

Get amped for this Friday and Saturday, as Rock ‘n’ Roll Wine presents Bubbles and Chocolate ($55) on Friday at 8 PM and its seventh annual Wine Amplified Festival ($65) on Saturday at 7 PM.

As if endless Moët & Chandon Champagne and gourmet chocolates by master chocolatier and Mandalay Bay executive pastry chef Vincent Pilon aren’t reason enough to indulge, the musical guest for this year’s Bubbles and Chocolate is Ed Kowalczyk, of the band Live, performing a set at around 9:30 p.m. Bubbles and Chocolate will feature several Moët Champagne labels to taste, including Moët Imperial Brut, Moët Ice, Chandon Brut, Chandon Rose, and Chandon Blanc De Noir.

The Champagne and chocolate extravaganza, held at Moorea Beach Club, was created three years ago as a more intimate pre-cursor kick off to Wine Amplified weekend, which always features a wine and music event on a September Saturday. This year’s Wine Amplified is September 15 at Mandalay Beach with Young the Giant headlining. More than 150 wines will be poured, eats from Mandalay’s restaurants will be featured, and multiple bands will perform over two stages. 702-240-3066
