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 pub fare for two at Rock & Rita's, located in Circus Circus (up to a $45.48 total value). This deal is valid from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. and includes:
- Two entrees (up to a $16.99 value each)
- Two draft beers or well drinks (up to an $11.50 value)
Rock & Rita's cooks sizzle up hearty fare from a menu of pub grub as bottle-twirling bartenders flip out cool drinks amidst psychedelic décor. Ma's mac 'n' cheese sends taste buds into nostalgic revelry with a down-home blend of five types of cheese that smothers morsels of smoked ham and bacon. Otherwise, the Bang Bang shrimp expands stomachs with a serving of succulent crustaceans accompanied by bonfire spices and a mélange of veggies. 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.
Guests can oogle 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.
