Want to hit on a porn star?
For the next few days the adult film industry will be gathered at the Venetian for the Adult Entertainment Expo. Friday and Saturday allow fans to buy admission to see the stars and get autographs on the convention floor. And, then, of course, Saturday night is the self-proclaimed porn Oscars, The AVN Awards at the Palms.
But if you really want to rub shoulders with porn stars and industry insiders you can ignore the official convention, and the porn star hosted nightclub parties. Instead head over to the Venetian’s “circle bar.” This is a generic bar on the casino floor. But for over a decade, for reasons no one seems to recall, this innocuous casino bar area has become the unofficial heart of the AEE convention. From company owners to the hottest adult stars, anyone looking to mingle, strike deals, network and flirt will at some point go to the Venetian’s circle bar over the next few days.
