Bar-Hopping Around Vegas

August 11, 2014 at 4:35 PM | by | ()

Our long-running Sip or Pour series has covered some of the best bars in Vegas. Usually, we highlight two different types of bars, those ideal for a stop before you move on to the next one and those where you can chill all night long (the party in the street being optional). But, what about one ultimate night of fun and drinks and more drinks and maybe some shots? Here's how we would spend one epic night in Vegas. If you follow in our footsteps, make sure to cab it or bring along the ultimate designated driver. (And, in some cases, it's just a short walk!)

Three Ways To Spend NYE Under The Stars in Vegas

November 30, 2011 at 1:26 PM | by | ()

This picture will automatically focus itself on New Year's Eve.

We've done it a handful of times. Some at our own choosing, others under duress. But, each time we've spent New Year's Eve on The Strip, literally on The Strip, we've had a blast from the people watching to the drunk people watching to the dude, did you just see that guy slug that other dude in the face? In da faaace?!?

It can be cold as hell (once, it was raining), uncomfortably crowded (did someone just rub up on us on purpose?), and painful, too (even when those are your most comfy shoes on your feet). However, the good times always make it worth it in the end. That's why when you're considering just how you're going to spend New Year's Eve in Vegas, you shouldn't rule out the fun that can be had under the stars neon. And, we mean more than filing outside a few minutes before midnight.

It's BYOB On The Strip This New Year's Eve

October 20, 2011 at 12:22 PM | by | ()

Now this is a party we could sink our ass into.

Just last week we were admiring the Palazzo for planning to celebrate Thanksgiving like the pilgrims did. We were in the midst of looking for our giant buckled shoes when an original option to celebrate the same, old tired annual tradition of ringing in the new year came our way. Sometimes unique puts the party in party-time. This probably isn't one of those times.

New Year's Eve on the Strip is huge. Lots of people, lot of parties. Even fancy fireworks. This NYE offers a party on the move for those that are tired of standing around waiting for the show, like to bar hop, and we'll even say the active, healthy types. It's a BYOB party. As in Bring Your Own Bike.

Red, White And Fill-In-The-Blank, Fourth Parties Are Almost Here

June 21, 2011 at 4:00 PM | by | ()

If you're not working on saving up for an epic hangover, Caesars Palace wants to kick off your Fourth of July holiday weekend with a bang. The resort will launch a bang-up fireworks display from its rooftop at 9:15 p.m. on July 3. We're not really sure why July 3 and not July 4, but as long as we can ooh and ahh while we sip oversized novelty drinks, it's all good.

If you're more of a traditionalist, you can catch Fourth of July fireworks on the Fourth of July at five Station Casinos hotels around town. Just be at Aliante Station, Green Valley Ranch, Fiesta Rancho, Texas Station or Red Rock at 9 p.m. that night to take in the show.

Here are some other ways to have a blast in Vegas this Fourth:

McFadden's at Rio
Red, White and Booze party on July 2
Happy 2 Hours from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. will get you all-you-can-drink for $15
Also expect $2 red, white and blue Jell-O shots & a chugging contest 'cause there's nothing more patriotic than slamming a brewsky

Smoke It On The Strip At Rhumbar

Where: 3400 Las Vegas Blvd S [map], 89109
May 17, 2011 at 4:59 PM | by | ()

Puff lovers can now smoke 'em if you got 'em at the Mirage. No, we aren't referring to anything illegal and we also aren't riding out last week's pickle eating contest.

Rhumbar introduces Puff N' Pulse Thursday nights. While you may not be able to puff the magic dragon, hand rolled cigars and hookahs are available without going to the land of Honah Lee. Toke on the usual flavors of vanilla and mint or branch out with white peach and tangerine dream. Go for fruity overload sipping a Watermelon Smash cocktail while inhaling watermelon hookah.

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:

The Fastest Three Minutes In Sports

April 15, 2011 at 1:48 PM | by | ()

The Kentucky Derby is known as "The Fastest Three Minutes In Sports" and unless you're at the derby dressed all fancy in a suite or big hat the best place to be is Vegas.

We're not much into horse racing for much of the year, but race day for the Kentucky Derby in Las Vegas is phenomenal - especially since it's not the only event in town. Kentucky Derby day is also the same day for the biggest boxing matches every year. This year that fight will be Sugar Shane Mosely vs. Manny Pacquiao, which takes place at MGM Grand Arena.

In the early morning and afternoon, pacific time, we can stop off at a bar or sportsbook to watch all or some of the Kentucky Derby races. Yes, there's more than just one race, it's an entire day of racing. Races will start at about 9am with the main race taking place around 3pm. It's a long day, but one we enjoy especially if the racing is served with a mint julep or three.
