Beer, McFast, at McFaddens

November 4, 2011 at 4:43 PM | by | ()

Editor's Note: McFadden's closed on Sunday, December 4, 2011.

We were at McFadden's Pub and Saloon at Rio the other day to meet up with some friends when we came across a table with its own beer taps on it. We read about this last year, but have not come across the actual technology until now. The taps work almost like putting gasoline in your car. You start a tab and are given a magnetic RFID button that will turn your taps on. You are charged by the amount of beer that is poured when you close the tab. This allows you to have a fresh beer whenever you want.

We like a nice cold beer and we tend to order small sized beers which are priced a little more than monster-sized beers by the ounce. Because we like our beer to be cold and fresh we'll spend a little more so that our beer doesn't get warm before we get to the bottom. This system would allow us to always have a perfectly cold and fresh Blue Moon next time we're at McFaddens. Blue Moon is best served with a slice of orange so we have to assume that they will just leave us a plate of oranges, which can become dangerous projectiles the more we drink. Consider this a warning.

Born In May? Drink For Free

May 6, 2011 at 12:03 PM | by | ()

Here's one thing we'll never get tired of - free drinks. Whether they're at the sportsbook or just for following a Vegas bar on Twitter, if Vegas bars are serving the freebies up, we'll always be there to guzzle them down.

The newest gratis drink special can be found this month at McFadden's inside the Rio. The Irish hangout will host a drinkfest for all May babies (who are now 21 or older) on May 21. Go down to McFadden that night from 10 p.m. until midnight and drink for free if you were born in the month of May! How awesome is that? The first 15 celebrants to get there will receive a special surprise, too. Here's to hoping it's free drink coupons for June!

Full Disclosure: This VC member is admittedly a little too eager about this story as our birthday just happens to be May 30! Woot! So, who are we going to see there??

Where To Catch The Kentucky Derby And Drink Specials, Too

April 26, 2011 at 1:11 PM | by | ()

The Kentucky Derby is closing in with nine more days to go. But, you don't have to go to the track to have a winning experience. In fact, being female with a really big (hey, now) hat will get you treated like a thoroughbred in Vegas.

Ladies with extreme hat-itude will be treated to an open bar at PBR Rock Bar during the big race, set for May 7 at 1:30 p.m. PST. Any female with a supersized hat will get free drinks throughout the race. Altho, men, we think if you're ballsy enough to wear one, too, you should ask the Planet Hollywood resto for the same.

McFadden's at Rio will host a "Getting Lucky in Kentucky" party on the 7th which will allow attendees to pony up a few bills to access an open bar. Ladies will need to pay $20 to drink all they want while fellas will need to pay $30. Wear a Kentucky Derby-esque hat here and have the chance to win cash and prizes.

Nom CHiPs With Erik Estrada And 8 Other Cinco De Mayo Fiestas

April 25, 2011 at 7:10 PM | by | ()

Erik Estrada. Midget wrestlers. Real Housewife cougar Tamra Barney and boytoy Eddie Judge. If you're looking to get loco on Cinco de Mayo, how about starting at a place that will make you feel like you've hit Crazy Town before you even begin to drink?

Tacos & Tequila at Luxor must have served up one helluva party last year as they're looking to do it all over again this year (with the addition of a, uhhh, tasty? dose of reality).

Estrada will preside over the mayhem once again which will include food and booze offers like $5 shots and $5 Dos Equis. The Half Pint Brawlers (made famous on Jackass 3D) will hype of the crowd and also take on guests filled with liquid courage in how-low-can-you-go limbo contests. Get cray-cray starting at 11 a.m. on May 5.

If that's not enough, here are eight other fiestas for Cinco de Mayo:

Where To Raise Your Glass on St. Paddy's Day

March 11, 2011 at 2:38 PM | by | ()

If the luck of the Irish will have you in Vegas next week for St. Patrick's Day, lady luck will make sure it's a holiday you'll never forget, if you're up to the challenge. Restos, bars and lounges all around town are planning to party hard, and many early, in celebration of the Irish holiday.

At Mandalay Bay, Sin City's newest pub - actually a hodge-podge of old pubs from Ireland itself - will officially welcome its first patrons on March 17. (Although, a soft opening is expected to take place a few days before.) Ri Ra Pub will have 17 beers on tap, 85 bottled beers and 140 whiskey labels to choose from. With the country's only Guinness store located right next door, it only makes sense that bartenders will be Guinness-certified on how to pour the perfect pint which will be served at 40 degrees in a 20-ounce glass.

The pub is a treasure to explore and if you don't go beyond the first bar, you'll be missing out as we found out on a preview tour a few days ago. Wander into each of the pub's four rooms to see something interesting and unique whether it's a gorgeous stained glass mirror salvaged from Dublin's Olympia Theatre where U2, Johnny Cash and others played, or the pub's quaint parlor room that will make you feel like you're boozing it up in grandma's house.

September 2, 2010 at 1:09 PM | by | ()

We obviously played beer pong in the wrong basements.

We'll bring you a roundup of the club and pool scene later on, but for now, here's what you can do that doesn't involve celebs or bikinis.

Where to Drink for Just $10 Tomorrow Night

August 6, 2010 at 5:12 PM | by | ()

Right now, The Palms is currently running a silly Fire and Ice room promotion sponsored by Trojan condoms that contains nothing fiery nor icey. But across the street at The Rio and inside McFadden's, "Fire and Ice" actually means something there.

Tomorrow night, the bar will open their oversized ice luge with chilled shots while other guests can engage in a spicy game made up of shots and hot sauce. Apparently, the first person who can melt their own shot glass first wins some cash and prizes. Not into playing games? McFadden's has an open bar from 8 to 10pm that's just $10 for both guys and girls. They do it again later from 11pm to 1am except the price increases for dudes to $20. But it might be worth it.

The bar is ending the night with a "Hot Bodies Hard Cash Contest" where two teams work to melt down a block with cash frozen inside. The first team to extract the money wins the cash and gets to spend it on blow and hookers a suite upgrade at The Rio! All that for just $10! (or $20 if you're a dude.)
