EDC’s Insomniac makes $162,000 donation; Oakville Steakhouse at Tropicana

Insomniac, the production company founded by Pasquale Rotella behind North America’s largest three-day dance music festival, Electric Daisy Carnival, partnered with eBay for Charity and Surreal to give back to the communities of Southern Nevada.

Together their third-annual EDC Week Charity Auction and first-ever EDC Week Charity Sweepstakes drew hundreds of participating fans who raised more than $162,000 for The Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada. The donation will fund 14 comprehensive art programs across the region.

TASTE OF NAPA VALLEY

As a part of the revitalization of The Tropicana, it will debut a Napa Valley-inspired steakhouse concept, Oakville Steakhouse, on June 17. Oakville will celebrate the acclaimed wines of Napa Valley such as Far Niente, Nickel & Nickel, Opus One, Plump Juck, Screaming Eagle, Silver Oak and Turnbull, to name a few.

The visually stunning wine wall that will greet diners showcases more than 150 bottles of prestigious red wines. Other design elements will showcase artwork and photographs of the vineyards, wineries and surrounding areas of Oakville, California.

ONE-DECADE RUN

Actor-magician Kevin Burke has performed the lead role of the one-man Broadway show “Defending the Caveman” more than 4,000 times here, and the show, which debuted here in June 2007, has just passed its 10-year milestone of consecutive performances. “Caveman,” which Kevin performs nightly at The D Las Vegas, is now the only resident Broadway production here.

“Caveman” premiered in San Francisco in 1991, moved to Broadway in 1995, and, after running 2 1/2 years and 702 performances at Helen Hayes Theater, became the longest-running solo play in Broadway history. Comedian Rob Becker wrote “Caveman,” a prehistoric look at the battle of the sexes with hilarious scenarios that celebrate the differences between men and women.

With three decades of experience, Ed’s designs will be on display throughout 2017. His company has created installations for the annual Macy’s Flower Show in Herald Square and floral-and-crystal compositions for “The Wall Street Concert Series.”
