Like laughter, beer is often bubbly, canned, or an indication that you don't take community-watch meetings that seriously. Enjoy an easygoing beverage with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of bar fare and drinks at Whiskey Dick’s in North Las Vegas.
The chefs and bartenders at Whiskey Dick’s draw inspiration from Prohibition-era smuggling magnate Richard Williams Junior as they parade a new menu of burgers, wings, and pizza onto tables and whiskey barrels. Resting between house-made buns, the swiss mushroom burger ($8.67+) dons melted cheese over wild mushrooms and BBQ burger ($8.94) is topped with whiskey barbecue sauce, bacon, beer-battered onion rings, and American cheese. The eatery's burger challenge taunts adventurous eaters with nine, 1/3-pound beef patties, cheese, and only 15 minutes in which to consume it ($26.11). Meaty chicken wings ($8.98) emerge from fryers to flaunt golden cloaks, and 12-inch customizable pizzas ($9.79; $1.01/topping) don piles of sausage, cheese, and bacon to draw nervous glances from napkins covered in newly discovered mathematical formulas.
Complete with pool tables and video-poker machines, Whiskey Dick’s saloon-style interior pulses with live music and bright lights five nights a week. As pool balls clink together, imbibers sip suds in the glow of 14 televisions that broadcast closed-circuit footage of other bars’ television sets.
