This week on the Strip, celebrate Cinco de Mayo, ladies night and the temporary closing of the Strip’s only dive bar.
For the ladies
Ladies, you get a new night on Thursdays at Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill in Harrah’s. For $10, women get a red cup that entitles them to unlimited refills on well drinks, Coors Light and Miller Lite draught beer until 2 a.m. If you’re a country music fan, you know this promotion refers to Keith’s song “Red Solo Cup.” But you don’t have to be a fan of country music to be a fan of a good deal. You must be 21 or older to participate. The promo runs from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. Thursdays. There also will be live music.
The Rockhouse Bar & Nightclub, on the Strip in front of Imperial Palace, closes its doors Saturday night and will reopen in 2013 as part of Project Linq. But the dive bar/club will give themselves a raucous send-off with a Cinco de Mayo bash and a drink countdown until the doors close, sometime Sunday morning. Starting at 10 p.m. Saturday, drinks will be $6; the price will drop $1 after each hour until 4 a.m. After that, all drinks will be on the house until the doors close for the last time. Call 731-9683 for table reservations.
Cinco de Mayo
PBR Rock Bar & Grill at the Miracle Mile Shops in Planet Hollywood Resort is throwing a Cinco de Mayo party Saturday. All day, select food items and drinks will cost $5. Among the items on the special menu are barbecue potato chip nachos, queso con carne dip with tortilla chips, chicken and cheese enchiladas and cheese quesadillas. Happy hour is from 3 to 6 p.m. and features $3 draft beers, two-for-one well drinks and $5 shot specials. Hours are 8 a.m. until closing. Call 750-1685 for more information.
Now that the Pop-Up Wedding Chapel is gone, can you get married at The Cosmopolitan?
It opened in December and closed in March. But from the beginning, the quirky wedding chapel was only a temporary thing. The concept was based on a retail phenomenon in which new venues would “pop up,” provide some service and then go away. In March, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas debuted a new pop-up concept in the same space, the EA Sports Bar. But the hotel is still doing weddings, a spokeswoman says. Just call one of their wedding experts at 698-7080.
