Stray from the traditional Thanksgiving dinner in Las Vegas
Not everybody wants to be sitting down to the same old same old on Thanksgiving—and if that includes you, here are a few tasty alternatives. (Reservations always recommended, and sometimes required.)
The newly opened sports bar Tailgate Social at Palace Station serves up fair-style whole turkey legs for $8 on Nov. 26—and you know the dark meat of the legs always was what you wanted anyway. You can also get $3 Bud Light drafts and $1 Wild Turkey shots.
At Treasure Island, the Golden Circle Sportsbook is serving up 26-ounce legs for $6.50 that have been anointed with a Cajun lemon pepper rub (while supplies last) as well as the regular full menu, which includes a bison burger, chicken wings and nachos.
At The Front Yard at Ellis Island, you can skip the whole bird and go straight for the sandwich that so many people crave every year. It features smoked turkey breast and smoke gouda, bacon onion jam and cranberry-mustard sauce, because really, what is the sandwich without the cranberry? It comes with a gravy dip and is available Nov. 25-28 for $15.
At Luxor’s Public House, check out a game and stuff yourself on turkey poutine ($13) and a T-Day sandwich with turkey, Italian sausage stuffing, cranberry mayo, brown ale gravy and crispy onions ($19).
PT’s SG Bar and Sierra Gold taverns will impress you with a panini stuffed with roasted turkey breast, Black Forest ham, provolone cheese, cornbread stuffing and cranberry mayo for $12. It comes with sweet potato fries and is available Nov. 24-26 while supplies last. Plus, the Wild Turkey New Fashioned puts a twist on the classic, with Wild Turkey whiskey, amaretto and bitters for $7.
Get a turkey sub with stuffing and cranberries at Blondies Sports Bar at Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood Resort for $7.99. It is available through Nov. 30. Also at the shopping complex, Ketchup Burger Bar serves up the Gobbler Burger, with a seasoned turkey patty, stuffing, gravy and dried cranberries. It’s $9.99 through Nov. 30.
Ready for dessert? Head to Carlo's Bakery at The Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian and The Palazzo, and you’ll find the PieCaken, a concoction invented by celebrity pastry chef Zac Young, consisting of pumpkin pie, pecan pie, and spice cake with a cinnamon spiced buttercream, available by the slice or by the full pie.
This one counts as drink and dessert. At Fashion Show, Sugar Factory’s Gobble Gobble Insane Milkshake comes in a chocolate ganache-coated mug and blends up homemade pumpkin pie chunks with rich vanilla ice cream. Plus, it’s topped an entire slice of pumpkin pie and a wild dark chocolate turkey to top it all off. Well, gobble-gobble indeed.
