For a rodeo cowboy, eight seconds can feel like an eternity, especially when the bucking bull starts recapping its vacation. San Sebastian has wonderful beaches—not my thing, though—with this GrouponLive deal to the Mesquite ProRodeo’s Winter Classic at Mesquite Arena. For $15, you get one G-Pass for seating in sections 101–112 on Friday, December 28, at 7:30 p.m. (up to a $31.25 value, including all fees). Because the ticket is a G-Pass, Groupon customers can use it to enter the venue directly; they will not need to redeem their Groupon at will call. Children aged 2 and younger receive free admission; other children up to 12 years old are regularly admitted for $12.
Beneath the lights inside Mesquite Arena, the Mesquite ProRodeo series kicks up dirt and jump-starts hearts with its annual Winter Classic. Rodeo fans ranging from pintsize to full size can saddle reserved seats, passing on the urge to sneak into the venue by hiding behind one of the rider's mustaches. During each event, PRCA cowboys and WPRA cowgirls will battle boot-to-boot in a variety of roughstock and timed competitions, such as bull riding, steer wrestling, saddle bronc, and barrel racing, which showcases speedy steeds to judges and any NFL scouts hiding in the crowd. Breaks in the action enable visitors to explore Mesquite Arena's extra attractions, including the BBQ Pavilion, where hickory-smoked brisket, rodeo beans, and peach cobbler (not included with this deal) help tame hee-hawing tummies.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
