    I'm flying into Las Vegas from Chicago tonight and wanted to know of some great bottle shops to check out. Can anyone help?

    Thanks,
    Chris

  3. Vegas is one city where I wouldn't spend much time hunting for bottles, theres plenty to keep you entertained ;) . Especially if your coming from chicago, the vast majority of stuff you'll find there should already be available.

  4. Destral is a pretty cool trader, too. I stay in Henderson when I go, so Kohury's is close by.

  6. Thread bump. . . I didn't want to start the billionth LV thread.

    Another work week in LV: What's the best option closest to the Orleans?

    MoneyPlays isnt going to blow the mind of any bigtime craft beer nerd, but we're trying to get a little something going in terms of variety. Always open to suggestions in terms of the beer menu, although my budget is pretty tough sometimes- BM me or add to the thread and I'll order what I can!

    Shuffleboard and sculpin usually satisfies me when I'm there! Plus the ginger behind the bar!
  11. Shuffleboard and Sculpin (knocks elderly ladies over to get a better vantage point)? Hell yeah.

    Funny story I'll share with you while waiting for the delay at the start of the Marquette/Ohio St. game on the USS Yorktown . . .

    Last time I was playing shuffleboard (last November actually on our way to Bruery Barrel Fest) was in Kernville. Did Kern River, drank lots of Class X, they close early, we hit up the main (only?) bar in town. Me & my bro are playing shuffleboard with these 2 chicks, one hot, one fugly (fat + ugly), we're both trying to duck fugly and put our mac on hot friend of fugly. Girls are getting a little flirty/frisky and whatnot, its really just a matter which one of us is gonna roll the dice and go for hottie, or which one is gonna be runnin' block/take one for the team w/ fugly. . . FF about 1/2 hour later, still playing shuffleboard (I loves me some shuffleboard) w/ the girls. . .

    some behemoth rushes into the bar WHO WANTS TO FUCK MY GIRLFRIEND!!!??? like he is gonna do a Mortal Kombat fatality move on the dude he finds. Slightly concerned , dude was about 300lbs, not backing up an inch, he approaches me, gets about 2' from my face, and in a lower, but clearly angry face, asks me if I want to "fuck his girlfriend." Deadpan Doc Holiday face, I ask "who'se ya girlfriend?" "Her (points to chunky girl w/ a scowl on his face)."

    "Her? Oh no, nah man, not trying to fuck your girlfriend."

    Dude sticks his hand out, shakes my hand, buys a round of Kern River Just Outstanding for everyone.

    Who knows what adventures lie ahead at Money Plays. . .

    Well you can now win porn and sex toys out of the Crane machine in the corner, probably buy illicit things from the Ethiopians that are in the shopping center, or stick to the Sculpin/Shuffleboard.

    Just don't mention Reno or U of N Reno or say UNLV sucks! Otherwise you'll be at the mercy of a loud drunk bum who frequents the bar!
  14. Only one? I would think after 8 straight years of the Fremont Cannon being up here. . . he prolly is drinkin' lots of this:
