$50 for VIP admission for two to Bark and Brew ($100 value)
Bark and Brew
Bark and Brew is similar to other beer festivals, only there's a lot more tail-wagging. On June 7, owners and their four-legged pals will gather at the Rumor Boutique Hotel for Las Vegas's first dog-friendly beer festival. More than 10 local and regional breweries—such as Ellis Island, Lagunitas Brewing Company, and Banger Brewery—will be serving samples of their craft beers while entertaining pooches with dog treats. Meanwhile, DJs Bass Punk and Vegas-based indie rockers Very Much Alive will kick out the jams like a lunch lady with a strict peanut butter-only policy, and the hotel's Addiction Restaurant will serve tapas. All proceeds benefit "Adopt a Rescue Pet."
