YOU CAN ALWAYS GO…DOWN-TOWNThe lights are much brighter there You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares So go downtown, things’ll be great when you’re Downtown – no finer place, for sure Downtown – everything’s waiting for you
On January 6 we’ll be moving our First Friday Happy Hourto the Swingers Club in the newly renovated Plaza Hotel at 1 Main Street – just at the western foot of the Fremont Street Experience in Las Vegas.And before you single folks get too excited, it’s called the Swingers Club because there’s a miniature golf course inside. Sheesh!
Better yet for the frugal-minded, Swingers will feature 50-cent Pabst Blue Ribbons (!) and $2 John Daly’s (think of an Arnold Palmer, but with sweet tea and vodka).
There will also be a number of fast-food (pizza!) outlets where you can grab something to nosh on (Swingers will let you bring snacks into the bar), as well as some post-Happy Hour restaurants – including Hash House a Go Go and Oscar’s Steak House.
Then walk dinner off with a short trip down the street to the First Friday Arts Festival. And, hey, if you want a nightcap afterwards…Swingers features dueling pianos at 9:30 pm.
But back to Oscar’s Steak House for minute:
That’s the new restaurant of former Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman up on the second floor looking out over the Fremont Street Experience which will be opening tonight. And Oscar his own self will again be our First Friday Happy Hour VIP guest-of-honor in January to usher in the new year/new venue/new attitude – though I suspect he’ll be drinking something other than a 50-cent PBR.
Joining Oscar at this extra special January First Friday Happy Hour will be Senator Dean Heller and Representative Joe Heck. This will be the event of the New Year!
