STRIPPERS: Kendra Wilkinson again teaches “Stripper 101” at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Sunday at Planet Hollywood’s aptly named V Theater ($250), which comes with a take-home pole and other goodies. And today the hotel launches Stripper Bar, billed as the only bar “run by strippers.”

MONSTER JAM World Finals sends Monster Trucks to Sam Boyd Stadium Saturday ($42-$130). I love Monster Jam. Even my dad, a hippie, love Monster Jam.
