Come at 6:30 p.m. to dance to Sinatra hits by the Las Vegas Downbeats, view the Sands photo exhibit in the Mayor’s Gallery and enjoy no-host cocktails. If you’d like, come dressed in vintage cocktail attire or enter the Sinatra look-alike contest. Take home your complimentary commemorative scrapbook, The Sands & The Copa Room. After the show, stop for a nightcap at the Junior League’s historic Morelli House at 861 E. Bridger Avenue.
