Cruise Update

Today is the last day for the $50 deposits. But don’t let that stop you from joining us on a fun filled adventure! (EDIT:  If you call our gal, she’ll hook you up with an extension!)

Many people still think cruising is for the over 45 crowd. I ensure you it’s not. It’s a great time to relax, catch up and enjoy doing something new.

It’s one of only times you will be happy to allow your phone to take a break.  The shows are cheesy, the drinks are expensive (read our post on this), but the food is good, the friends are plenty and experience can’t be beat.

Here are some photos of the last HHG cruise to Mexico.

On the Lookout for New Meeting Places!

We are always looking for new places to cover.

Our basic requirements are:

1. A Long(ish) Happy Hour

We understand that an hour means an hour, but that doesn’t help our members when the hour ends at 5pm and they don’t leave work until 5:30. Or if you know the owner or management team that would extend prices for us, that would cool too.

2. Uncharted Waters

We know about the places on the Strip and a few local bars, but where are some of your favorite places to go that have not been featured on Buzzfeed or flipped in a Bar Rescue?

3. Great Atmosphere

Let’s face it, were not everyone’s cup of tea, so the less hoity, is the best for our toity.  But if this place is something that we should definitely see, we will give it a try and stay on our best behavior.

4. Never the Same Place Twice

We try to never visit the same place twice.  Check out the Past Meetings page to see where we’ve been. (Yes, we know it hasn’t been updated, we’re working on it!) The Calendar page also has some past locations.

That’s about the gist of it. If you would like to host a meeting, drop us a line!  We’d love to have more members!

OH YEAH…here’s our shameless plug:

Keep Calm and Have a Drink!

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!

LET’S HAVE A DRINK!

The date is set and the location chosen!

Join us for National Chip and Dip Day, Thursday March 23, 2017! (Yes, we know it’s OVER a month away.)

Landry’s on Sahara has been a staple in the Las Vegas Valley for some time and made a big splash when the holding company purchased the Golden Nugget in 2005.  You’ve probably eaten at a Landry’s restaurant and didn’t even know it!  They are the owner of these famous brands:

(This is not a paid endorsement from the Landry’s organization or any of their brands…just passing on newly found knowledge.)

But we will buy you a drink if you tweet, friend, tag or share us!  Use the hashtag #HHGLV so we can find you!

Hope you can join us!  We’ll be the loud bunch at the bar!

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 

 

https-%2f%2fcdn-evbuc-com%2fimages%2f25357254%2f191960118166%2f1%2foriginalThe Tater Tots and Beer Festival hits Henderson this year with it’s

gluten fest of domestic and craft beer samples and taters. Yes that sentence is redundant, but we cannot wait to sample everything!  They are only selling a limited number of tickets to this event, and have already sold out of the GA stash, so you better hop too it!.

Time: 11 am – 2 pm (the 3 pm – 6 pm slot is SOLD OUT)
Location: Henderson Pavilion
Price: $75 per person VIP (GA is SOLD OUT)

12472487_645864588905322_795893374065533766_nRounding out the Saturday of amazingness is the 3rd Annual Sunset Park’d featuring New Vistas Community Brew’s Best Beer Festival at Sunset Park.  Food trucks, craft beer live music and more. 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.
