Ditch Fridays:  Every Friday throughout the summer, the Palms Hotel turns its normally serene pool side setting into a melee of bikini clad madness.  Miller Lite Beer hosts this Friday only event and will give VIP status to anyone seen chugging down one of their tasty brews.  The idea of ditching Friday to party hardy has the odd effect of drawing in an older, more sophisticated crowd than that seen at the other pool parties on the strip.
