Five Oversized Souvenir Drinks to Try in Vegas
1. Paris Las Vegas
You know you want a giant drink shaped like the Eiffel Tower. Peeps fill these "towers" up with daiquiris and sip them with a giant straw. Really, it couldn't be any less French if it tried. You can go for a little Parisian flair with a giant balloon-shaped vessel instead.
Le Petit Bar serves Eiffel Tower-shaped drinks for about $
Much like the Eiffel Tower, big plastic Stratosphere-shaped glasses, called The Stratoblaster, are served here which can be filled with what else? Daquiris. For more cheesey tourist effect, hold your Stratosphere drinks atop the Stratosphere for a picture!
Buy at the top for about $
3. Imperial Palace: The Rockhouse bar in front of the IP is home to several over-sized drinks including the 80oz guitar drink. These guitar-shaped drinks (picture your Guitar Hero guitar filled with booze) cost $32.
Refills, if you can handle it, are $20. *Rockhouse closes May 5, 2012.
There are other places that sell yard-long cups, but Harrah’s wins the mine-is-bigger-than-yours contest with their four-foot-long, purple version.
Various bars here sell the $20 drinks.
5. The Rio: This Latin-themed resort sells yard drinks with a tambourine on a handle. According to Flickr Member, Evil Yoda (a big fan of LV souvenir drinks), these were found at the buffet as well as the All-American Bar & Grille.
The drinks are around $20 (and not included in the buffet.)
Want a broader selection all in one place? For souvenir gifts that scream “I have far too much room and discretionary income and have not moved beyond my college dorm, beer-bottles-from-around-the-world-window décor!”, you have to hit Bonanza Gifts, the “world’s largest gift shop.” Here, your souvenir cup runneth over (literally), as does your Vegas-monogrammed potential. You can choose from magnets, key chains, games, clothes toys, and their best-seller: Polly the Insulting Parrot (she’s foul and fowl—clever, right?).
