Las Vegas Happy Hour + The Happy Hour Gang = Happiness!

We are so excited about our upcoming meeting that we have been double dog daring the days to go faster!

A few months ago we reached out to Las Vegas Happy Hour.  They have an amazing website that list happy hour times and locations by neighborhood!  THEY ARE AWESOME!

Vegas Uncork’d by Bon Appétit

OMG!  We jguysavoyust took a peek at the upcoming Vegas Uncork’d event by Bon Appétit…..HOLY CANNOLI!  4 days, 5 properties and beaucoup celebrity chefs (that’s French for a lot), host and food.

Prices for this amazing experience range from $109 per person to $6,450.00 (a private chef table for you and 5 of your closest friends with celebrated chef Guy Savoy). It’s not for the faint of heart, or the lint in your wallet, that’s for sure.

But one day. One day.

Check out our calendar  for this event and other festivals coming to the Vegas Valley.

OH we almost forgot!  Head to the Brews N ‘Ques Festival on Saturday, March 4th and say hi to our very own Sweet Pea, she’s volunteering to drink free. That’s one smart lady!

Where Did We Go?

That’s a fair question don’t you think?

We’re still here.

Just waiting on Biscuit to send in her review of B.A.R. (Very awesome place by the way) and for Johnny T’s review about a few places that he had the opportunity to travel to. (SIGH)

So we wait…but not for long.

I am in the process of getting something together for a random holiday in March.  Can’t decide on Thursday, March 16th, Everything You Do Is Right Day, Sunday, March 19th National Corn Dog Day or Thursday, March 23rd National Chip and Dip Day. It’ll come to me soon, so be on the lookout for an invite soon.

Time to go Coconuts!

When we arrived at Coconuts Beach Bar and Mexican Grill, there was a mix up on our reservations, but of course the gracious staff fixed us up with a great table and brought over Pepe, the bar mascot.  No, he’s not an actual person or an animal.  He’s a large red, pinata in the shape of a donkey…If he wasn’t so big, he would probably be our mascot today :).

The happy hour specials were great; two for one wells and house margaritas, and 50% off appetizers. We will be honest, the margaritas are a work in progress as they are trying to perfect a recipe, but we love that they admit they are still learning! And it was an honor to be a part of the taste test later on that night!  But let’s talk about the Sangria.  Delicious!  A pitcher works great for at least two people, but if you are like us, just order one and add a straw!

The atmosphere at Coconuts reminds us of a great little bar in Mexico where everyday feels like spring break. There’s a small patio area that over looks movie goers as they head to Rave Motion Pictures, and a nice high top table for larger groups right behind the hostess stand.  The huge main bar features hand painted menu boards, with great drinks like Butt Monkey, Malibu Barbie, and the Million Dollar Tequini. The DJ booth resides inside a VW shell next to a second bar in the back of the restaurant that leads into another section.  During the cocktail hour there are tables on the dance floor and stage, but during the evening festivities, they easily disappear.

Let’s talk about the food!  OMG!  If you don’t try the Coconut Cancun Calamari, your life will forever be bland!  Three of us devoured four plates in a matter of minutes. The Ceviche Cancun is great, but small…though it’s enough for two people, order one just for yourself! But if you and your friends are really hungry, The XL 4 FT Burrito is just for you!  This thing is HUGE!  BIG! Check out the photo for yourself!

All in all, we had an amazing time at Coconuts and many of us plan to go back again, but we eagerly await our invitation to go back  and help taste test the new margarita recipe!

Coconuts offers great events and specials, so  to help you keep up to date here’s a link to their site, their tweets and their status updates.  Thanks Coconuts, you’ve reminded us that our group is fun, wild and full of hyjinx.

For more photos of our “meeting” at Coconuts, head to our FLICKR account.  Next month we’re heading to Paymon’s Mediterranean Cafe & Hookah Lounge.  Please join us!  We are always looking for Happy people to join our gang!  Remember until next time Keep Calm and Get a Drink!
