The Old West was a time of pleasantries when gentlemen tipped their hats to ladies and a GPS directed stagecoaches using Sam Elliott's voice. Savor the golden age with today's GrouponLive deal: for $40, you get two VIP tickets to a dinner and a stage show at Rockin’ R Ranch in Mesa (up to a $76 value).
The Rockin' R Ranch dishes up heaping servings of Wild West–themed entertainment and country-style meals in a thriving cattle ranch operated by one of Arizona's premier pioneer families. Modern-day settlers can mosey to their VIP seats, where they'll watch The Rockin' R Wranglers hearken back to honky-tonk time with tunes such as "Orange Blossom Special" and "Ghost Riders in the Sky," which acts as a warning call to loitering canyon jumpers. As the band gallops through its lively set, onlooking cowboys and cowgirls indulge in a bounteous barbecue chicken and beef dinner, perfect for sopping with hot biscuits from a Dutch oven.
In addition to the fine vittles and expert fiddlin', audience members can bear witness to a fatality-free gunfight, take notes at an old-timey medicine show, or hop into the Old West saloon, which opens at 5:30 p.m., and savor the sarsaparilla atmosphere. A fun round of gold panning rewards hardworking gold diggers while reminding modern folk of the days when gold didn't grow on trees.
