A few nice things about October in Las Vegas: The fricken hot heat of summer which sears your eyelids to your eyeballs abates for six months; kids go back to school, giving their parents at least a semblance of renewed sanity; and an Oktoberfest is promoted in nearly every nook and cranny in Las Vegas, hopefully, to give the venue a revenue bump.
One of the premiere events is the Jacktoberfest Beer Festival that runs today from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Sunset Station in Henderson.
It features 30 different beers from all over the world. And if that is not enough to satiate your needs, then maybe the live music from The King Mixers, Hair Nation and Sin City Sinners will- these are not your ordinary garage bands.
Included in the $20 entry fee for this event is a plethora of events that only drunkards could truly appreciate: $500 for Sexiest Oktoberfest costume (or what many of you normally wear anyway), Hooters Bikini Beer-Chugging Contest, BBQ Grill Toss, Weiner Dog Races, and so much more.
For the really commercial strength chuggers there’s an after party inside Club Madrid later in the day. No word yet on whether escorts will be allowed to accompany the inebriated.
Please call 702-547-7777 or log on to www.sunsetstation.com for more details.
Please, arrange for a cab to get back, enjoying the day even more.
