    Memorial Day weekend is only a few days away. This year, instead of staying home and firing up the same old rusty grill, why not kick this summer off by spending your weekend dancing the night away in some of the hottest cities around the country. DJ Pauly D may be shooting season 4 of MTV's The Real World in Italy right now, but there are tons of other tunes you can 'beat that beat' to! Here are some events taking place in some of America's biggest party locations:

    1. Las Vegas, Nev.: Sin City drags in a New Years-size crowd to their many resorts and casinos during this three-day break. After taking in the Nevada sun poolside, head out to the hottest nightclubs on the strip - VIPnVegas lists performances from Deadmau5, Sean Paul and Drake at some of the city's top venues. Stay until the wee hours of the morning (or just don't go to bed) - maybe you'll rub shoulders with David Guetta or Tiesto at the roulette table. Now that's something you won't want to hide from everyone at home!
