Kina and Jamie started working together at the SHAG Store in Las Vegas in August 2022. As they continued to work together, so did their friendship. Together their creativity has been atomic; not just with the creation of Dressed to Dive For, but with ideas to help get the word out about the SHAG Store Las Vegas.
So with tiki in mind, these two have decided to host Tiki Saturdays at the SHAG Store. They will create Instagram and Facebook content for Happy Hour Gang, Dressed to Dive for and the store featuring merchandise, prints and cocktails.
But that’s not all. They want to feature you! Come into the SHAG Store Las Vegas on any Saturday starting Saturday, February 4 dressed tropical, tiki or in your favorite Aloha shirt and come take a photo with Jamie or Kina.
Also on Saturday, February 11, Josh Agle “SHAG” will debut a new Aloha shirt in partnership with Frankie’s Tiki Room starting at 5;00 PM at the SHAG Store inside the Palms, then heading to an afterparty at Frankie’s starting at 8:00 PM.
Tonight all across this great nation of ours, there will be a….
Yes, that’s right, crowds of people will pack into bars, theaters and rec centers to watch individuals take off their clothes. Some may cheer, some may take out their phones, and the majority will drink.
By now you are wondering why we are bringing up burlesque on a blog dedicated to Happy Hour. Well one reason is, majority of the shows are in places that serve alcohol and the second is because we have added a local burlesque calendar to ours. Oh, just in case you didn’t know already, local to us is Las Vegas. But you don’t have to be local to attend. Just be ready to have a good time and fairly cheap drinks!
You will find the calendar on the right hand side of this page and of course HERE!
What’s fun about these local productions is that someone knows someone. For example, the show tonight at the Baobab Stage will be hosted by Blanche Debris. She has appeared in Menopause the Musical, Magic Mike, and produced and stared in Miss Margarida’s Way. She is also one of the featured hosts at the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekender.
It’s not uncommon to have performers from popular shows on the strip stop by. For $15 we have seen aerialist from Cirque, the balloon girl from Absinthe, a professional hula-hoopist, and top named comedians.
A Playboy Bunny or two have also graced our stage along with a operatic soloist.
Yes, you read that right, the girl sings opera while stripping. Proof that there is culture in this town.
Have you had a chance to see a local show? Not just burlesque but any. We’d love to hear about it at our next meeting! RSVP HERE!
The next meeting is fast approaching in just a few days! Have you reserved your seat yet?
So we were just checking out the menu….you know, planning our food and beer pairings (Not really. We’re not that savvy!). March 23rd is National Chip and Dip day, so of course we want to start out with that. Unfortunately, there are no chips and dip on the Happy Hour menu….but that’s ok, because there’s so much to choose from!!!
First we’ll have some Edamame and Calamari (hey they rhyme, so it must be a good combination!). Then we’ll have the Stuff Shrimp Enbrochette (an fancy way to say skewered). So far we’ve only spent $17. Yup all that food for under 20 buckaroos!
Did we mention that Happy Hour prices go on until 9 pm in the bar? YUP, 3 pm to 9 pm. A HHG host or hostess will be arriving around 5 pm, we’ll have table toppers claiming our spots. We are looking forward to seeing everyone; don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

So we reached out to Sweet Pea to give us a synopsis of the Brews N ‘Ques Beer festival. Looking to get some great photos; what she did for volunteering; how would she rate this to the other festivals she’s been to…
Here’s what she sent:
