Get Happier in Las Vegas with Happy Hour Specials!

I always consider every hour I spend in Las Vegas Happy Hour but believe it or not it gets better! Especially, with this great tip.

I just recently found this cool website I think you just might be interested in. It’s a site that keeps track of Happy Hour Specials all over Vegas. They break down the specials by location in the following categories for easy navigation: On Strip, Off Strip, Downtown, Hotels & Casinos, and Shopping Malls.

The site does a good job of providing you with all the information you need to know such as, location, happy hour times, description of specials, and much more. As I looked around I was pleasantly surprised with some of the offerings. As you can imagine the common special is ½ drinks and ½ appetizers but some places get more creative and specific.

To be truthful I actually never really realized happy hour specials were as common as they are in Vegas. Maybe it’s an economy thing but you can bet that before my next Vegas trip I will certainly review this site and take some notes, as I’m usually ready for a break mid to late afternoon.

So whether you need a break from a losing streak, feel like taking a load off from nonstop walking or you’re simply watching your budget. I see taking advantage of a little happy hour happiness nothing short of a pure win!

Have a Happy Hour tip/experience to share? Post away in the comments below.

Major League Baseball in Las Vegas?

Do you care? I do, I love baseball and I love Vegas. I’m especially interested because Las Vegas is classified as an American League city and the thought of my beloved Detroit Tigers playing in my favorite playground gets me excited. The Las Vegas Sun just recently published an article about this very subject. Apparently an existing major league team is looking at Las Vegas as a possible new home. It’s still unclear what team it is but many believe it’s the Oakland A’s, Hmmm…. The Las Vegas Ace’s maybe? Or is it the Kansas City Royals? How about The Las Vegas Royal Flushes?

Of course a dome would have to be built because of the extreme summer temperatures. But let’s take it a bit further, how about building a Stadium/Hotel/Casino and take the theming concept to the extreme? I can see it now a retractable roof stadium with hotel rooms and balconies overlooking the field. And the buffet could consist of endless hotdogs, nachos, peanuts, and such. Oh and the casino could have baseball memorabilia throughout (think Hard Rock Café style). Heck, top it all off and hire Pete Rose to be the official hotel greeter. Put this all together and you would have a great money making tourist attraction!

Wishful kidding aside, I think a Major League Baseball team would be good for the city. Baseball has a long playing season with many loyal fans. Plus when you consider Las Vegas has something to offer just about everyone…. I see nothing but a win for all, fans in the seats, restaurants, and casinos.

Unfortunately I don’t see a team coming to Vegas anytime soon as there are many hurdles to overcome like stadium financing, professional league sports and gambling issues, and a host of others like Vegas’ lack luster economy.

Sure it’s nice to dream, and I would visit if it ever happened, but I don’t think the house has the advantage on this one, at this time. What do you think?
