The ground-beef shepherd’s pie bakes up lean beef, peas, carrots, and mashed potatoes culled from Mr. Potato Head's personal entourage into a golden-brown crust ($12.99). A flavorful host of American-style pub fare complements the Irish cuisine, with Sean Patrick’s burger charting in at a robust half-pound ($5.99), and appetizers such as nachos ($4.99) and chicken wings ($7.99) courting frothy pints of Guinness.

Those who complete consumption in 15 minutes are rewarded with a T-shirt, not having to pay for the burger, and a set of false teeth once worn by champion eater George Washington. Vacant belly hovels can also be furnished with the fried mac 'n' cheese ($8.79) and a slab of Don’t Let Your meatloaf ($10.14, available 5–11 p.m.)

A fleet of Keno varieties, including Caveman Keno and Lightning Keno, neighbor digital poker and black jack, and budding opera stars can take the stage for karaoke on Friday and Saturday evenings.
Las Vegas doesn't exactly lack for nightlife. Walk down the neon-lit Strip, and you'll be forgiven for thinking that the city has more nightclubs than it does permanent residents. But with so many options comes the anxiety of searching for the best and brightest of what Vegas has to offer.

By partnering with clubs and entertainment venues throughout the city, the company is able to arrange outings that give you access to some of the area's hottest nightlife spots, all without the hassle of lines and cover charges. Groups are free to let loose as they make multiple stops over the course of the evening to enjoy drink specials and a complimentary piggyback ride from each club's bouncer.

Despite its name, The Tailgate Grille isn’t modeled after a parking lot. Leather couches and a gleaming wood bar fill the lounge-like space, whose flat-screen TVs stay firmly tuned to the games du jour. To fuel fan frenzies, the cooks sizzle up a selection of 18 sliders, including miniature burgers, hot dogs, and philly cheesesteaks, and morning-themed sliders, such as the bacon, egg, and cheese and country-fried steak smothered in gravy. They also churn out decadent pizzas, whose toppings and cheese rest on a deep-fried crust, taking deep-fried Snickers bars down a peg. Dipping sauces such as malt vinegar aioli complement sides of fries and onion rings, and four sauces coat bone-in or boneless wings.
