The Day of Awesomeness: November 12, 2016

Why is this date so important?  We will give you three reasons; tater tots, craft beer and wine. Sounds amazing right?  No it’s not what we’re serving for Thanksgiving, it’s the focus of the 3 festivals that are happening on that one day!

Obviously people who say there’s nothing to do in Vegas don’t drink.

LEE_WineExp16_FlyerThe Lee’s Wine Experience has been around for 14 years and shows no signs of stopping!  The event is a fund raiser for Lee’s Helping Hand Foundation, a 501(c)3 organization focusing on helping Las Vegas valley community strive and grow in areas of education, disabled family assistance and family safety.

Time: 4 pm – 8 pm
Location: Thomas & Mack Center
Price: $60 in advance (any Lee’s Discount Liquor or participating sponsors) or $70 at the door
Discount tickets can be found on Groupon: CLICK HERE

This is built as a family event….we know. So more than likely kids will not be allowed in the beer festival.  Just make sure to bring a babysitter/DD with you to this all day event.  There will be over 30 food trucks and all proceeds from the event go to New Vista, which provides assisted-living and group-home programs for the intellectually challenged.

Just like last year, some vendors agreed to offer what Sunset Park’d is calling a “tasting dish”. These tasting dishes will consist of (3) three bite sized specialty food items, at a price of $6 or less. Sounds NOM!

Time: 12 pm – 8 pm
Location: Sunset Park (our suggestion, carpool)
Price: FREE! (Purchase of food and drink is your responsibility unless otherwise noted)

As always, please drink responsibility and govern your behavior accordingly.  If you attend any, or all (if you are brave of heart and liver of steel) of these events take photos and let us know your thoughts.

Published by The Happy Hour Gang

The premise of The Happy Hour Gang was first created for a group of friends to get together weekly. But it has grown to over 40 people and moved to a monthly event that visits different bars or lounges. This blog has been created to highlight bars that we have visited and will visit during our time together.
