Seeing live music can be a transcendent mind-body experience, akin to getting a tattoo underwater or making out during an eclipse. Transcend boredom with today's Groupon: for $50, you get two select-level tickets to see Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo on Tuesday, August 9 at 8 p.m. (a $50 value) and $50 worth of cuisine at your choice of Charlie Palmer Steakhouse, Briscola, or Rim at the Grand Sierra Resort and Casino (a $100 total value).
Grand Sierra Resort and Casino's 1,800-seat Grand Theatre houses an enormous stage stocked with the sonic stylings of multiplatinum artist Pat Benatar and lead guitarist Neil Giraldo. From section D or E, fans can sway, fist-pump, and plié as Benatar's powerful pipes fill the theater. The crowd will belt along with Benatar during her '80s anthems such as “Heartbreaker,” “Hit Me With your Best Shot,” and “Love is a Battlefield.”
Postshow, pairs can dine at one of Grand Sierra Resort and Casino's three fine-dining eateries. Charlie Palmer Steakhouse's selection of hearty meats fills bellies with tender slabs such as the blue-cheese-crusted top sirloin ($29). Briscola's chef Charlie bathes mouths in artisan Italian cuisine, such as the chicken parmesan ($19)—a crispy chicken breast disguised from forks in a cloak of mozzarella cheese and homemade tomato sauce. Rim's pan-Asian fusion comprises Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Thai fare in a modern dining room bedecked in traditional Asian statuary.
