Walk your way through a good time
Now that the weather in Las Vegas no longer feels like you’re walking around inside an oven, it’s time to enjoy the comfortable temps and explore the Strip’s outdoor destinations like the action-packed Linq Promenade. Situated between The Linq and Flamingo, the Promenade is a hot spot to do some drinking.
Vegas loves frozen-drink bars, and here the Breeze Daiquiri Bar offers a dozen options like lemonade, tropical, piña colada, orange and energy boost; there are also Jell-O shots and $3 and $5 shots on an assortment of liquors.
If variety is what you’re looking for, stop at Yard House and pick from 160 taps of imported, craft and specialty beers, as well as cocktails and sake. Take advantage of the happy hour from 3-6 p.m. Monday through Friday and get $2 off beer, wine and cocktails.
More beer specials await at ameriCAN Beer & Cocktails. On Sept. 26, get the Modern Times Beers bucket special: mix-and-match five beers for just $35. On Thursday nights, join in the Karaoke Night fun beginning at 7:30 p.m.
Every day is St. Patrick’s Day at O’Sheas, where bartenders hop up on the bar to pour shots directly into patrons’ mouths. There’s also gaming like blackjack and craps, live music and DJs, and beer pong tournaments.
For more games and fun, try Brooklyn Bowl, where you can reserve one of the 32 bowling lanes and order up food and drink while you try to score a 300! Some friendly advice: Order the famous and tasty Blue Ribbon fried chicken and the lip-smacking Bourbon St. Shake with Nutella and a shot of bourbon.
For something a little different, hop aboard the High Roller, the world’s tallest observation wheel, for its Happy Half Hour event. You can ride during the day or catch the neon views at night and your ticket includes one 30-minute rotation with an open bar inside the cabin.
At Tilted Kilt, hang with the Tilted Kilt Girls, dressed in sexy plaid skirts. There are drink and food specials every day, like $5 Fireball shots on Fridays and $8 Patron margaritas on Tuesdays. Enjoy Thursday Night Football from 3 to 9 p.m. with beer bucket specials, and the $9.31 Tilted tots and draft beer special.
