While hopeful revelers wait in line outside a club, guests of Good Times VIP are already congregating around a reserved table as servers begin pouring drinks from reduced-price bottle service. The special treatment is a result of Good Times' personal relationships with clubs around Las Vegas and Los Angeles. Whether for a bachelor party, birthday, or extraspecial Department of Sanitation inspection, its prearranged club crawls guarantee clients skip lines or sneak in through private entrances at reduced or free admission. A staff member is assigned to each party as a personal concierge, planning every detail ahead of time and staying on as a contact throughout the celebration. To supplement club crawls, the staff can also use their list of contacts to investigate special rates on limo service, concert tickets, spa days, and recreational activities such as jet skis or party boats.
At Roadrunner Saloon, executive chef Matthew Silverman has compiled a menu of range-inspired specialties that combine American cuisine with modern down-home cooking. His kitchen staff perfects half-pound burgers and steaks, fish tacos, and hearty salads. They serve up the sizzling cuisine at their two Las Vegas locations, each with a distinctive collection of vibrant furniture, murals, stone fireplaces, and New and Old West accents. From Bowlingo, their own mini-bowling alley, to rock-and-roll tunes and gaming, bowlers can pull up a barstool, kick back, and enjoy crafted signature cocktails and delectable desserts.
For more than 30 years, Lee's Discount Liquor has stocked its shelves with myriad spirits, beers, and wine, earning a readers' pick as the Las Vegas Review-Journal's Best Liquor or Wine Store of 2012. Prospective imbibers get lost in a fluorescent catwalk of domestic and international tequilas, rums, cabernets, and microbrews, which deck out beverage collections with enough flavors to match any type of cuisine or postage stamp desired. Lee's Discount Liquor also hosts in-store tastings and an annual spirit-sampling event, which merges its myriad sips with entertainment from live bands.
Threading is an ancient technique for shaping eyebrows that is natural, safe, organic, and effective. Instead of slathering on harsh hair-removal creams loaded with chemicals and nickels or hot wax that can burn and abrade sensitive face skin, let the friendly eyebrow and upper-lip artists at Diva Beauty safely craft elegant arches and smooth mouths that will frame, define, and brighten a whole face. The results don't invite bumps or irritation, and a threaded mug is also less likely to experience local swelling or redness. The treatment frames, defines, and brightens the entire face until it shines like a lighthouse made out of glow sticks.
When chef John McKibben first opened Grape Street Cafe in 1997, his small restaurant took a back seat to a large front-of-the-house retail area where customers could purchase house-made sauces, salads, and high-quality wines. Though the concept quickly transitioned to focus on the fresh, house-made dishes flying out of his kitchen, McKibben has held on to his retail license and continues to encourage his diners to finish their meal by picking up a bottle of wine to go or commissioning a self-portrait painted with balsamic vinegar.
With the exception of a handful of rotating nightly specials, the menu has stayed largely the same, and Chef McKibben credits the cuisine as the eatery's 14-year secret to success. Dinner finds the shop's signature hot sandwiches, creamy pastas, and pizzas sharing top billing alongside nationally inspired entrees such as a baked Alaskan halibut topped with lemon beurre-blanc and Colorado lamb in a sweet-and-sour mint glaze. However, the diverse menu is designed to complement the restaurant?s real draw: its extensive wine selection. Up to 90 vinos are available by the glass each day, with selections that hail from as near as Napa and as far away as Mosel, Bordeaux, Rioja, and Mos Eisley.
