December full of entertaining events in town

The last month of the year is about to begin next week and the month of December will offer plenty of fun for all to enjoy.

Whether it be a night out for adults only or something residents of all ages can enjoy, there are several planned events ready to end 2015 on a positive note.

Kick off the month with some laughs at Bonkerz Comedy Club inside the Pahrump Nugget Events Center. The club presents comedians Christine Little and Warren Durso during the month of December. The pair of funny people have been featured on Fox Network’s “Laughs,” “Work of Genius” and more.

Tickets are $10, but the price of admission comes with $5 in free slot play. The shows kick off at 7 p.m., with Little performing Friday and Durso entertaining the crowd Dec. 26. For more information contact the Pahrump Nugget at 775-751-6500.

In an event that is good fun for the entire family, the Nevada Outreach Training Organization presents its Victorian Christmas. Taking place at the Bob Ruud Community Center on Dec. 11, from 4 p.m. through 8 p.m., the family-friendly event features children’s activities, hot chocolate, arts and crafts, face painting, photos with Santa and more.

In addition to enjoying an evening with the family, you can help support Nevada Outreach Training Organization by attending the event. The admission to the event is one non-perishable canned food item, so you’ll also benefit those less fortunate this holiday season all while having a fun time.

If you’re looking for a car part you can’t find, or have a stockpile of your own you’re looking to get rid of, the HUBB Classic Car & Parts Swap Meet has become a local favorite and the December edition should be no different. Taking place at The Hubb Bar, located at 3720 W. Bell Vista Ave. Dec. 12, beginning at 8 a.m., the swap meet is a one-stop shop where you can buy antique, vintage, classic and/or high-end cars and parts at bargain prices.

“It’s basically guys and gals who have classic cars and they are going to bring them out and have parts for sale or you can even sell your classic car if you want,” said Erin Hubbell, general manager of The Hubb. “It’s kind of a get-together for folks that enjoy classic cars to swap parts.”

If you miss December’s event, don’t worry, as it is held the second Saturday of each month. For more information call The Hubb at 775-910-9575 or visit them online at www.thehubbnevada.com.

As 2015 comes to an end, the town has a pair of events to usher in 2016.

If you want to make your own light show in the sky and skip navigating the over 300,000 people that walk on the Las Vegas Strip for their New Year’s Eve celebration, then Pahrump has your answer.

The town invites locals and visitors to safely launch their own fireworks for an exhilarating celebration during the New Year’s weekend at the launch site located on Gamebird Road, one mile west of Highway 160.

The site allows permit holders who are 18 years of age or older to discharge aerial fireworks purchased from permitted fireworks retailers located in town. Instead of one night to enjoy the show in the sky, revelers can shoot off their favorite fireworks for three nights of fun. Dec. 30, Dec. 31 and Jan. 1, from 8 p.m. until midnight each night, all permitted adults are able to launch.

To cap off 2015, guests are invited to enjoy a selection of wines, champagne, decadent dishes and more while saying hello to 2016 at Symphony’s at Pahrump Valley Winery, located at 3810 Winery Road. The night will feature a five-course meal that offers different pricing.

If you get the chicken entree it will run you $39, and on up to the steak and lobster option that will cost you $79.

There are three time slots interested attendees can reserve. Those are 5 p.m., 6:30 p.m. and 7:45 p.m. Pahrump Valley Winery warns they will sell out, so those who want to attend are asked to act fast. Reservations are required to attend, so don’t delay and get your spot saved today.

To reserve your spot or for more information contact 775-751-7800.

Divas on a Dime: Puff pastry palmiers offer versatile holiday baking

Puff pastry is a freezer staple year-round, but I find myself using it constantly during holiday season. Its ease is matched only by its versatility. I’m sharing a technique for making palmiers that’s so easy it’s a perfect treat to make with your kids. Or if you’re like me it’s a perfect shortcut to making people think you’re an expert on French pastry.

Divas on a Dime: Get all the goodness from your turkey with stock

If you have a turkey carcass in your refrigerator today (and who doesn’t?) you’re going to want to get all the goodness you can from it. Right? So, let’s make a rich stock. But can we say “frame” instead of carcass? Because I don’t think the word “carcass” is remotely appetizing.
