FOR THIS YEAR’S EVENTS GO HERE.
Rockhouse Bar & Nightclub
This is a case of good news, bad news and good news again. Located in front of the Imperial Palace the Rockhouse is one of the best places to party on the Strip anytime but it’s going to be out of control on May 5th. The Rockhouse will be closing after an all night Cinco de Mayo party. The good news is that starting at 10pm they’ll be doing a drink countdown with drinks starting at $6 and then going down a dollar each hour until 4am……and then it’s all drinks on the house! The other good news is that this is a temporary closing to make way for the Linq project. A $500 million development featuring a 550 foot tall observation ferris wheel along with restaurants, shops and a new location for Rockhouse, the best dive bar in Las Vegas. It’ll be completed sometime in 2013.

Senor Frogs – Treasure Island
Good grief. It seems like we’ve been waiting forever for the opening of Senor Frogs!!! Well it’s finally going to happen on Cinco De Mayo!!! It should be a mad house.
Coconuts Beach Bar & Mexican Grill
The party will be at Coconuts Beach Bar & Mexican Grill this Cinco de Mayo as the restaurant hosts festivities filled with contests, prizes and more. The party, hosted by Johnny Tsunami, gets started at 5 p.m. and features live mariachis, piñata smashing every hour, dancing, sombrero tossing, a four-foot burrito challenge, a gummy worm eating contest and Miss Cinco de Mayo. Plus, learn how to make Grandma’s Guacamole from the secret recipe. Food and drink specials take place from noon to 8 p.m.
Cinco De Mayo is just around the corner and you guys are thinking, “Where can I go dressed like a woman, drink, party, play some games and feel right at home?” The answer of course is Drink & Drag opening May 5th; the newest addition to the Downtown scene. Taking the place of Jillians in Neonopolis, it’ll be the first bar and gaming venue to be staffed by drag queens. Play air hockey, billiards or go bowling (tough in heels). Interactive gaming chairs and table-top board games are there for your entertainment as well. I just love this crazy idea. It’s soooo Vegas! Don’t be a big homophobe! Just go and have fun.
Get Laid on Cinco De Mayo! oops, I meant Lei’d.
Lei Day is back for the 15th year in Vegas at the California Hotel parking lot on Stewart and Main May 5th & 6th. If you’ve had your fill of Mexican (impossible) try a little sweetness from the islands. Go here for details. Aloha my friends.
