Carolyn Goodman and Councilman Bob Coffin announced that April 18, 2013, is “18b Arts District Day” in Las Vegas. And to celebrate, there’s a party at Boulder Plaza honoring the neighborhood’s pioneers (Naomi Arin, Cindy Funkhouser, Wes Myles, Oscar Goodman, et. al.) and its current board (Marc Abelman, Brian Paco Alvarez, Sam Cherry, Brett Sperry and no fewer than 10 others). The event starts in ceremony and then carries on with a reception in the courtyard — which we can only surmise will be filled with lots of rosy-cheeked art folks. As it should be. MAX PLENKE
