Hundreds of Las Vegas pool partiers were recently treated to a surprise appearance by Mark Wahlberg at Circa Resort & Casino when the former Hip Hop star, actor, and entrepreneur stepped behind the bar to personally hand out tastings of  his famous Flecha Azul Tequila. Check out the video here.

For those of us who were not lucky enough to be present when it all went down, there will be another opportunity to grab a glass with our recently new neighbor this Memorial Day Weekend. Wahlberg is scheduled to meet fans (21 & over) on Fremont Street Saturday, May 27 starting at 6pm.

Mark Wahlberg has been in the headlines lately having sold his house in Los Angeles and relocating his family here to The Summit Club in Summerlin in order to provide a better life for his children.

Excited for the future here in Las Vegas, our new neighbor has launched a second ‘Wahlburgers‘ on the Strip and hopes to create jobs with a state-of-the-art studio and a factory to produce apparel for his ‘Municipal‘ line.

Last seen in the comedy ‘Me Time‘ co-starring Kevin Hart and ‘Father Stu‘, Wahlberg‘s upcoming projects include an action thriller called ‘Our Man From Jersey‘ and ‘The Six Billion Dollar Man‘ based on the popular 70’s TV show ‘The Six Million Dollar Man‘.

Before the success as a Hollywood film star, MarkMarky MarkWahlberg achieved global recognition as a Hip Hop artist with his group ‘The Funky Bunch‘.

Marky Mark and The Funky Bunch released their debut album ‘Music For The People‘ in 1991 and reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 with the single ‘Good Vibrations‘. Their follow-up release, ‘Wild Ones‘ topped out at number 10.

Short-lived, the group disbanded in 1993 after providing the song ‘I Want You‘ to the original 1993 Super Marios Bros. movie soundtrack.

The question that fans have been asking for years is whether or not ‘Marky Mark‘ will ever make a return to the stage. Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres got the answer during an interview on her show which you can watch below.
