Nothing could halt the NTDLV.com website launch party, not even a hurricane. The stormy skies might have grumbled, but the energy at NUWU dispensary was electric as the event unfolded.
Located on Southern Paiute land, NUWU dispensary played host to this one-of-a-kind gathering. As the sole legal cannabis smoking lounge in Las Vegas, it was the perfect backdrop for an unforgettable and important night, celebrating the fully independent launch of There's Nothing to do in Vegas' website, NTDLV.com.
Originally planned for the courtyard, the event was quickly redesigned by RAOW RAOW arts collective, who lead and creatively directed the night. An intimate upstairs/downstairs ambiance emerged and that only added to the allure. Downstairs, a vibrant Vegas Vendor Village awaited, showcasing an array of local treasures. Live art and stylish lowrider bikes by Crank N Grind created a visual vibe. Visitors indulged in vegan delights by Simply Pure & The Edible Bunch, all while perusing marijuana products available for purchase.
The highlight of the night was the chance for @nothingtodolv fans to delve into the NTDLV.com website firsthand. Exploring the site unlocked a raffle ticket, a key to a treasure trove of local prizes generously contributed by notable businesses like Brooklyn Bowl, The Punk Rock Museum, Atomic Saloon, and Ellis Island.
Venturing upstairs, the vibes only intensified. RED, a masterful emcee skilled both on the mic and with buckets, had the crowd grooving to his rhythmic cadence. Olmeca, a luminary from Project Blowed & Acid Reign, captivated hearts and minds with verses alternating seamlessly between English and Spanish. Graphouse Wrestling added an unexpected twist to the evening, as an anti-weed wrestler was forced into taking a hit.
Guiding us through the enchanting night was none other than the unmistakable voice of Las Vegas, M.P.Art and sounds, including a bunch of Vegas artists, spun by DJ Edoc. As the night marched on, an announcement was made, heralding the official launch of NTDLV.com. Plus there was a cake (!) , a detailed and delicious vision, courtesy of Caked Up.
To complete the truly legendary night, Vegas icon Dizzy Wright commemorated a decade of his album, "The Golden Age." His live band, The High Vibrations, brought the house down with a performance that will surely resonate for another ten years.
Thank you to those who made it out to celebrate and have been rocking with us. We truly appreciate you and hope you join us on our new platform.
