Located on Fremont Street, right at the gateway to the Fremont East Entertainment District, Don’t Tell Mama is well situated to attract downtowners looking for live entertainment. A black and white checkerboard floor sets the tone, with ample tables and half-booths lining the walls, plus red velour drapes that hang around the large space. But the bar’s real draw is the grand piano, elevated on a small stage, from which singing bartenders and accompanists perform nightly. Patrons can make song requests and sing along with the waitstaff if they so choose. Or, better yet, get onstage themselves to perform renditions of Broadway show tunes, pop, rock, country, cabaret or any other song that comes to mind (and can be cued up from Don’t Tell Mama’s voluminous music files). There’s no cover but an enforced one drink minimum, so be prepared to spend some cash.
During the concert extravaganza of the Country Superstars Tribute, four talented singers team up with a five-piece band to celebrate twangy legends such as Garth Brooks and Willie Nelson in a posh, 600-seat concert hall. After a collection of songs from Reba McEntire's Grammy-winning oeuvre, a Tim McGraw tribute artist culls from the star's 32 No. 1 hits, from the rascally "I Like It, I Love It" to a musical rendition of Munch's The Scream. In addition to mastering singers' tale-spinning vocals, tribute artists also capture their signature styles, from Kenny Chesney's signature cowboy hat to Reba's ubiquitous propeller beanie.
The Charcoal Room features top-grade cuts of meat, an extensive wine list, and fresh fish daily. The atmosphere is equal parts fine-dining class and low-key relaxation, like a news anchor whose desk is concealing a pair of sateen parachute pants. Peruse the menu to discover substantial steaks such as the pan-seared bone-in rib eye (22 oz., $32) and petite cuts such as the filet mignon (7 oz., $28). Classic salad styles such as the wedge ($7) or Caesar ($7) are perennially in good taste, complementing meat with the finest of chlorophyll. The boneless baby-back ribs ($10) and lobster mac 'n' cheese ($14) turn the traditionally difficult-to-eat into forkable fare. Since swords themselves always return from the grill too hot to eat, swordfish ($32) makes for a blade-inspired meal not forged by a sweaty blacksmith. Collect a cartel of iron-eaters who prefer their steak prepared on top of more steak and request a corner booth facing the door at The Charcoal Room.
In vintage Vegas fashion, Ichabod's entertains for 24 hours a day and boasts live music and video gaming to accompany the extensive lunch and dinner selections.

The dinner menu boasts a dozen varieties of burgers, including the chili burger ($8.99), with cheddar cheese, red onions, and chili, and entrees offer satisfying selections such as the 12-ounce broiled rib eye ($17.99), classic chicken-fried steak ($11.99), and a tortilla-crusted tilapia ($13.99).
