Basket from Skin City

“Skin City was founded in 2006 by artist Robin Slonina, producer and judge on GSN’s hit competition show, Skin Wars. Over the years, she has assembled the most talented, award-winning crew of painters, makeup and hair stylists, photographers, models and circus entertainers in town, to form the best, most unique body painting and event planning service team in the US. Skin City has since organized countless promotions, events, theater fundraisers, photo shoots, fashion shows, parties, conventions, and more.

Skin City’s living art has been featured on scores of television shows — GSN, MTV, Showtime, NatGeo, Travel Channel, Lifetime, etc. — as well as in the Huffington Post, USA Today, Hustler Magazine, Las Vegas Magazine, and the Dallas Observer, just to name a few!

Highly professional, artistic, creative and fun, the Skin City team does single private body painting sessions all the way up to full event planning for hundreds or more. Skin City can create ‘living art’ in any style, to fit whatever theme you can dream up!” – Skin City

$100 Atomic Liquors Gift Certificate

“Atomic Liquors is the oldest freestanding bar in Las Vegas. We also operate The Kitchen at Atomic and Atomic City Brews, our festival program, all with the same passion that led the Sobchiks to reopen Virginia’s Cafe as Atomic Liquors in 1952 and spend the rest of their lives serving its patrons.

We want to elevate the Las Vegas craft beer scene, and that goal led us in 2016 to launch Atomic City Brews, a new festival program with a dual mission: to expose Las Vegans to a variety of great beer not readily available in the city, and to expose brewers around the country to the burgeoning craft beer scene here.” –Atomic Liquors
