At Tommy Rocker's, guests devour burgers, sandwiches, and salads while trying their luck on round-the-clock slot machines and listening to live comedy and music on the weekends. Empty stomachs can fill their coffers with the classic half-pound Angus burger ($7.95) or a full rack of baby back ribs thrice basted in a house-made barbecue sauce ($18.95). Roasted chicken breast and vegetables splash through béchamel puddles under a golden-brown parasol of pie crust ($10.95). Diners can redeem $10 towards slot machines while swaying to the Jimmy Buffett-esque tunes of Tommy Rocker himself or one of his many guest artists. Like Mike Ditka's moon base, the Henderson location provides a safe haven to expatriate Chicago Bears fans, and the Las Vegas location is a Miami Dolphins bar. All patrons must be of the legal drinking age to enter. Stop by the Las Vegas location on Saturdays after 10 p.m. for parking-lot beer pong and samplings from local food trucks (cost of food truck items not included in this Groupon).
Kaizen Fusion Roll & Sushi intersperses inventive sushi rolls with Japanese entrees, finger fare, and half a dozen sakes served hot or cold. A wood-framed, square sushi bar dominates the space, backed by an accent wall that captures the shimmering hues of a flame. Patrons can sidle up to the sushi bar to enjoy seaweed cylinders flung into their mouths directly from the chefs’ knife, or settle at a table along a chartreuse wall. In addition to using fresh fish, the restaurant's sushi selection reverses traditional rolls with ingredients such as Korean-style barbecue short rib or pickled pumpkin. Kaizen Fusion Roll & Sushi's chefs also think outside the cylinder as they whip up conical and spherical entrées of Asian-style barbecue and teriyaki accompanied by imported Asian beers and saketinis.
Vegas Painting Parties' mission is simple: to invite artists of all skill levels to try their hand at replicating a fanciful image while enjoying one another's company. Scheduled around lunch or happy hour, the social classes encourage participants to fuel their creativity with food and drinks as they embellish canvases with paints and grape-juice spit takes. Depending on the theme of each event, partygoers might paint still-lifes, animal portraits, or sweeping landscapes.
Madame et Monsieur's non-invasive, FDA-approved ElectroSlim technology helps clients get buff. Electrodes attached to the target area deliver electronic pulses that stimulate more than 1,000 muscle contractions in a single one-hour session. The soothing procedure feels like a deep-tissue massage, but delivers the muscle-building results of a serious sweat session. ElectroSlim can tone specific areas that normal exercise doesn't reach as well as burning away excess amounts of fat, redefining the client's overall body shape.
Though Sue Harragan and Tawnya Christian discovered barre workouts on opposite coasts, a mutual love of fitness and their desire to help others achieve their "best self" brought them together in Las Vegas. The business partners now helm Barre Las Vegas, a studio that strengthens hearts, cores, and limbs with ballet-inspired barre workouts. Upbeat music fuels each session, during which students line up at the barre and perform a routine of precise dance-training moves that blend yoga poses, Pilates exercises, and orthopedic stretching. While patrons burn calories during bouts of fat-burning interval training, they also increase their flexibility and tone their muscles, making their bodies as lithe and lively as a break-dancing slinky. In addition to leading barre classes, the motivating instructors push students toward their fitness goals with workout-enhancing tools such as TRX suspension-training straps.
Sue Harragan and Tawnya Christian didn't take their first ballet barre workout class together, but they had the same immediate affinity for the workout's precise movements and body-sculpting potential. Nowadays, they work together to spread the good word of the addictive workout at their Las Vegas studio, thebodybar(re). While their eclectic course catalogue includes TRX and bootcamp sessions, their core classes are all ballet-barre based. They mix muscle-building and core-toning with cardio and stretching for a complete workout that centers around the ballet bar. Some classes incorporate weights and adrenalin-boosting beats, and one even eschews the barre altogether in favor of a Pilates-style workout.
