February in Vegas teases that Spring is just around the corner, with an average high temperature of 63 F. But watch out for early morning and late night chills, with an average low near freezing (34 F). So you might want to skip that early round of golf in favor of a pleasant afternoon outing! Wind will still be cool, so you might want to keep a jacket with you.
Matching the weather, February is full of cool events in the area; but to offset the chill, we’ve got a hot deal for you. Read below about a special room rate we’re offering for early birds.
At the Riviera:
Come watch the Super Bowl with us
February 3, 2013 from 2 p.m.
Le Bistro Bar
Join us at the Riviera’s own sports bar, Le Bistro Bar, where we’ll be watching the first Super Bowl to ever pit head coaching brothers against each other: John Harbaugh with the Baltimore Ravens and Jim Harbaugh with the San Francisco 49ers will be duking it out on the field. Oh, to be a fly on the wall of their next family dinner.
The Ravens are making their second Super Bowl appearance; this is the sixth time for the 49ers, who are in fact favored by 4½. If they win, they’ll tie with the Pittsburgh Steelers for the most Super Bowl wins. Watch the game unfold on our jumbo HDTVs.
Entry is free; for $40 you’ll get all-you-can-drink domestic beer and well drinks.

Springs Preserve CSI: Crime Scene Insects
February 3 to May 12, 2013 at Springs Perserve
The perfect follow-up to Dr. Entomo’s Palace of Exotic Wonders, which closed last month: all month in February, Springs Preserve is showcasing a special exhibit about crime-solving insects. This is a traveling exhibit that’s been hugely popular at other venues, like the Museum of the Rockies and the New York Hall of Science. Especially great for kids, it explores how insects can help solve crimes through “forensic entomology.”
If you’re a Bank of America cardholder, you might try to visit on February 2 or 3, when you get free admission (see below for more details).

First Friday Art Celebration (Free)
Friday, February 1, 2013 from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m.
Downtown Arts District
Vegas celebrates its arts community the first Friday of every month. It’s a fun and family-friendly event that includes artists, vendors and activities. It’s also free, but you may want to bring along some cash if you plan on purchasing any art or taking advantage of the many, many food trucks. The celebration also usually features multiple live bands and live performance “paintings.” It’s one of our favorite events to take the family, get away from the Strip for an evening and discover a cornucopia of artisans specializing in all kinds of media, like painting, photography, sculpture, ceramics, textiles, and more.
For more information about getting there and what it includes, visit their website.
