The Lost Blog Post | It’s a Happy Time for Happy Hour at Landry’s

This was the last post created for the Happy Hour Gang. When we were active, we were active. We had new people coming joining, our regulars were excited about each new venue we explored, and it didn’t seem like we were ever going to stop. Then just as fast as it started, it stopped. Hopefully, we will get back to doing more meetings. Until then, enjoy the lost blog post about our meet-up at the now-closed Laundry’s.

Meeting Date: Thursday, March 23, 2017
Number of Attendees: 4

According to Wikipedia, “Happy Hour” might have been created in the sense of a scheduled period of entertainment by the US Navy. In early 1913, a group of “home makers” called the “Happy Hour Social” organized “semi-weekly smokers” on board USS Arkansas. The name “Happy Hour Club,” “Happy Hour Social Club,” and similar variants, had been in use as the names of social clubs, primarily by women’s social clubs, since at least the early 1880s.

4 women, that’s all who attended our meeting today and trust me, it was not bad. There was a lot of laughter, catching up, food, and drinks. Out of our little group, only 2 have ever been to Landry’s, and the others plan to come back with their significant others for dinner.

Our waitress for this evening was Krissy. Upon asking her how to spell her name, she said, “Normally people spell it A-M-A-Z- wait is that right? AMAZING, because that’s what I am!” We liked her immediately. She brought us great drinks including a Pomegranate martini with a half-sugar rim that was just to die for. It was not overly sweet and sugary but had a great tang that created a perfect effect of satisfaction and wanting more. We did, thank you very much! At $6 each, we couldn’t resist.

For food, we had Calamari, Buffalo Chicken Sliders, Edamame, Fried Crab Balls and Fried Green Tomatoes. Yes, we fed an army. Relatively good and absolutely filing.

UPDATE 06/06/2018: This post was supposed to be finished over a year ago, but life took over as it often does.

It’s sad to hear that this location closed a few months after our visit. The atmosphere and service were both an experience we will never forget and disappointed we won’t be able to go back.

I still remember this day and the way we connected over food and drinks. Besides, isn’t that what happy hour is all about?

Tiki Saturday is coming to the SHAG Store Las Vegas

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.


Tassel Twirling with a Beer in Hand

Tonight all across this great nation of ours, there will be a….

…Burlesque show.

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!11102736_1025428020819666_6371436240545273775_n

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!



HHG Landry’s Meeting Update

photo-7The 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 photo-24combination!).  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.
