Celebrities in L.V.: Al Pacino, Jimmy Buffett, Sublime With Rome, Alessia Cara, Lakers, Red Bull Air Race, Barrett-Jackson

There’s something for everyone this star-studded weekend.

Sports fans not only have the pre-season game between the Los Angeles Lakers and Golden State Warriors at T-Mobile Arena, but also daredevil dicing-with-death thrills of high-flyers in the Red Bull Air Race World Championship at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Music fans have everybody from Sir Elton John at Caesars Palace, Donny & Marie Osmond newly renewed through 2017 at The Flamingo and Jimmy Buffett at MGM Grand to Foghat and Sublime With Rome Downtown and Alessia Cara at SLS Las Vegas. Yandel has been moved to Mandalay Bay, and The Moody Blues wrap their mini-run at The Venetian.

Comedy fans can enjoy Rita Rudner at Red Rock Resort for two nights and hometown hero Wayne Brady at The Mirage.

Film and theater fans have a treat of a sit-down session with Al Pacino as he spills studio secrets in a Q+A at The Venetian. Josh Brolin premieres his motocross doc “Unchained” at Caesars tonight with stunt kings Mike Metzger and Seth Enslow parking their motorbikes before striding into Octavius Ballroom for the red carpet.

Join us as we raise money for the homeless with Four Queens headliner comedy illusionist Mike Hammer’s Celebrity Go-Kart racing with Lance Burton, The Amazing Johnathan, Mac King, Murray Sawchuck, “Sexxy,” Melody Sweets and Lydia Ansel. I’ll handle grand marshal duties starting at 1 p.m. Sunday at Gene Woods Racing Experience.

Feeling old? The Las Vegas Review-Journal presents its Age Well Expo at Cashman Center with an opportunity to meet your hometown newspaper’s favorite columnists, including yours truly. If this is an overload of events and entertainment, join me to ponder how to pack it all into the weekend calendar on one of the nine benches at The Park with life-sized Lego people. Starting today through Dec. 30, they’ll listen silently to any complaints.

And high rollers can bid on the world’s greatest collector car auction at Mandalay Bay or play the $50,000 rock ’n’ roll craps tournament at Golden Nugget, so place the bets and roll the dice for this weekend’s jam-packed Robin’s Royal Rundown:
