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.

Brews N ‘Ques

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:

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.

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!
