What a better way to celebrate the Day of Green then to watch or participate in a good old fashioned “Kiss Me I’m Irish” contest. Only this time try a girl-on-girl lip-locking affair in – where else? – Sin City.
Hosted by Gooch and with a performance by 51 Fifty, the slobbery kiss-off contest is something you don’t want to miss at the Wasted Space Rock Club in the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. And if you say “Gooch” at the door you’ll get in free.
Since it’s also the Las Vegas local industry night, you’ll get to watch all the people get crazy who serve you and watch as you get your crazy on.
Las Vegas celebrates most holidays with room rate specials and bonus points on players cards. But St. Patrick’s goes beyond neon, music and fabulous food.
Sammy Hagar’s Cabo Wabo at Planet Hollywood will be serving up Chocolate Irish Mochas and “Greena colada’s” along with $5 pints of green draft or Guinness. Wear a kilt and find out what other specials there are beside green tortillas burritos and quesadillas.
Another Planet Hollywood locale, Blondies Sports Bar and Grill, is offering a one of a kind event – the Glow Green party. Wear white – and be sure it’s something you don’t mind getting marked. You’ll have to fork over $20 for cover, but you’ll enjoy all you can drink draft. Once you’ve tossed back a few, you can put your drunk drawing skills to work when the black lights go on and the highlighters come out.
If it’s a true Irish moment you’re really wanting to have, stop by Fado’s Irish Pub on Eastern starting at 8 a.m. with Kegs and Eggs followed by music by Finnegan’s Wake at noon. The party goes on with more musical groups and, of course, a wonderful selection of Guinness, Harp and fine Irish whiskey.
But for some of us, one day to celebrate St. Patty’s just isn’t enough. Not nearly. So why not join the four-day block party at O’Sheas on the Strip? There promises to be beer pong with Peepshow starlet Holly Madison, music by DJ Irish and later by the Sin City Sinners and $1 Irish Car Bombs and $4 Guinness on tap. The party goes on until midnight March 20 with Blarney rock-bottom drink specials and events every day.
The 43rd Annual Sons of Erin St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Festival will be held March 12-15 in Henderson, Nevada. The daily carnival at the Henderson Events Plaza, 200 Water Street, will have rides and games with a portion of the proceeds going to Positively Kids. Positively Kids offers services and programs to assist medically fragile children in the Las Vegas valley and is the charity benefiting from this year Sons of Erin St. Patrick Day celebration.
So whether you’re interested in a free concert sponsored by Phil Flowers Productions, want to spend an evening at the Irish Pub, enjoy carnival rides, or simply enjoy the spectacle and spectacular of the annual St. Patricks Day parade (scheduled for 8 a.m. Saturday, March 14), come on down and help turn Water Street green!
