UNLVino

Kick the month off on a delicious note at UNLVino’s 43rd Annual Grand Tasting, Nevada’s longest-running wine tasting event, at Paris Las Vegas. It may seem like just another food event to Vegas visitors but this local fundraiser benefits the scholarship fund for students of UNLV’s William F. Harrah College of Hotel Administration. So basically, look at it as an investment in your Vegas vacation future because you’ll be helping the hospitality industry of tomorrow.

Enjoy a wide variety of wine, beer and spirits plus food from restaurants like Beer Park, BLT Steak, Carmine’s, El Burro Borracho, HEXX Kitchen & Bar, Sprinkles Cupcakes and Virgil’s Real Barbecue.

ACM Party for a Cause

The Academy of Country Music takes over Las Vegas with its Party for a Cause, benefiting its charitable arm, ACM Lifting Lives. Events take place all over the Strip.

Next up is a concert under the sun at Flamingo’s GO Pool on April 1. Hear music from Jackie Lee, Jerrod Niemann, Old Dominion and Dee Jay Silver. The doors open at 9 a.m. if you want to get there early to chill by the pool and work on your tan. Music starts at noon and just remember, a cowboy hat makes an ideal sun shade.

When the sun goes down, head to the ACM After Party for a Cause at John Rich’s new venue, Redneck Riviera, at The Grand Bazaar Shops at Bally’s. John Rich himself will be there to perform along with Adam Craig and Clay Walker.

Taco Tuesday here we come at Chayo Mexican Restuarant.

Tuesdays in April just got a lot tastier. Guy Fieri’s El Burro Borracho at Rio wants to fill you up without emptying your wallet. Taco Tuesdays mean it’s time for $35 all-you-can-eat tacos, house margaritas and beer. Taco choices include al pastor, picadillo, verduras asada and chipotle pork with roasted corn. Upgrade to $45 all-you-can-eat tacos, specialty margaritas and beer to expand your options even more. Additional taco choices include carne asada, lava rock shrimp and drunken fish and specialty margaritas include pineapple habanero and peach ginger margaritas.

Start your day with any breakfast entrée like fried chicken and waffles or brioche French toast, paired with coffee. Lunch and dinner combos come with a side item and a soft drink. We’re partial to the mac ‘n’ cheese carbonara and the farm burger topped with Applewood smoked bacon and a fried egg. Bonus: There are plenty of vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options on the menu too.

  1. All, that described, of course, is very amazing. But do you have any suggestions, concerned about sports activities and games? Maybe you can advise what sports clubs or sports bars to visit. (I like pool and table tennis).

    Hi Roman,
    Thanks for reading! I’m not a ping pong player and I don’t really know of any spots specifically for that but let me ask and I’ll get back to you if I can find an answer. As for pool, I know Beer Park, the awesome outdoor venue on the roof at Paris Las Vegas, has that. It’s got lots of fun games and is just plain fun for hanging out, grabbing a beer and food with friends. The view is pretty awesome too: https://www.caesars.com/paris-las-vegas/restaurants/BeerPark#.WO0uClMrJhE. Let me check on another place or two I think have pool because I’m not certain. I know you didn’t specify beer pong but O’Sheas at The LINQ has an awesome setup for beer pong and is a very fun place to “play” on the Strip. https://www.caesars.com/linq/hotel/things-to-do/o-sheas?icml=lasvegasblog_ilv_thingstodo_osheas

    Have fun!

  3. Thank you, Allison, for the suggested articles to read!
