Real Beer Floats – and more – in Las Vegas

Forget the root-beer– I mean, after all, when in Las Vegas party you should be partying with the big boys – or gals – right-o?  And that includes your beer! 

Combine your beer with dollops of real ice cream at the Yard House in Las Vegas ( Town Square, 6593 Las Vegas Blvd South) for a mere $7. 

Not an ice cream junkie?  Then take a play out of Yard House director of beverage Kip Snider’s playbook who likes to add Lindemans Framboise or Young Double Chocolate stout.
