Like a classic work of Victorian literature, a trip to the bar often begins with an introduction to colorful characters and ends with the revelation that everyone in the room is related to each other. Continue an age-old struggle with today’s Groupon: for $22, you get a barbecue meal for two at Rock & Rita’s, located in Circus Circus (up to a $57.48 total value). This deal is valid from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. and includes:
- Two entrees (up to a $22.99 value each)
- Two draft beers or well drinks (up to an $11.50 value)
Rock & Rita’s cooks sizzle up American fare from a menu of barbecue grub as bottle-twirling bartenders flip out cool drinks amidst psychedelic décor. Tender, hand-carved beef brisket is paired with choice of side, such as mac ‘n’ cheese, which sends taste buds into nostalgic revelry with a down-home blend of five types of cheese. Otherwise, the tri tip expands stomachs with a serving of succulent meat, topped with Sweet Baby Ray’s barbecue sauce in original, honey barbecue, or citrus chipotle. Patrons can cool down their throats that are parched from swallowing tasty bites or proclaiming satisfaction via operatic aria with an icy draft beer or well drink at the full bar fashioned from a large prismatic bus.
Although not included in today’s Groupon, Rock & Rita’s also offers 48-ounce toilet bowl beverages, sending diners home with a keepsake toilet bowl mug. Guests can ogle the bartenders as they toss bottles, juggle glasses, and balance barstools while pouring drinks and reciting the list of past mayoral candidates from memory. Rock & Rita’s showcase karaoke on Thursdays and live music entertainment on various nights throughout the week.
