Cheap beer and less expensive food sounds good to me. Happy Hour on the Vegas Strip usually starts before the sun goes down but this late night Happy Hour At BLT Burger at The Mirage is from 10pm-1am. That’s the right time for cheap beer as far as most people are concerned.
Many of the dishes and drinks are half price. Check out the full BLT Burger Happy Hour menu. Here are my favorite deals at this Happy Hour:
New Belgium Fat Tire, Blue Moon and Sierra Nevada Pale Ale – $3.50
Chicken Wings – $6
Waffle Bites – $3.50
I’ll probably grab the cheaper beer and pay full price for an awesome bacon cheeseburgerthe next time I’m at BLT Burger.
I had a couple of hours until my next appointment so I figured that there’s no better way to kill time than to drink good beer on the cheap. Well drinks are $3 for the 3-5-7 Happy Hour and food is either $3, $5 or $7. The real winner here is the beer drinker.
All draft beer is the $5. This discounts some of their already great priced micro brews even further. Take a look at the menu which is missing some of the rotating seasonal or micro batch beers that rotate.
The prices for the smaller brews are fair at all times of the day but a $5 Delirium Tremens is fantastic. Not only won’t you find Delirium Tremens at many bars but you won’t find it for the regular $7 price and you definitely won’t find it for $5.
The beer above was something from the Lips of Faith series from New Belgium brewery. It was super sour and something I wouldn’t have tried unless it was $5. I’ve never had a beer like that so I’m glad that I tried it. It’s one of the draft beers that was on rotation at the time, so it may not be on draft when you visit.
I point out Delirium Tremens because it’s one of my favorite beers but there are plenty of great beer options at Pizza Rock. If you’re hungry you can have an excellent meal and beer for $10. That’s pretty, pretty good.
You can find cheaper drinks and food in Downtown Vegas but you won’t find prices that match the quality of beer and food you’ll get at Pizza Rock during happy hour. This is a great excuse to get out of the casinos for a little while and get some fresh air.
Note, Pizza Rock also has Craft Happy Hour from 10pm-2am that I always seem to forget about.
I was sitting outside yesterday afternoon, drinking the last of my Snow DayWinter Ale from New Belgium brewery and taking in the sun when I looked at the weather report and noticed that the temperature is heading into the mid 80’s this weekend. Las Vegas is heading into the best weather of the year!
As a visitor April and May were my favorite times of the year for Vegas weather. As a resident of Las Vegas (remember Vegas and Las Vegas are different) that has extended into March. March is when the weather begins to warm up and while it reaches perfection all the fun begins now. Outdoor drinking and dining have just started and soon I won’t be as dependent on sunlight to keep warm.
It’s officially pool season and the high temperatures are only in the mid 80’s. The low temperatures don’t feel as drastic as other times of the year and are in the 60’s which is almost perfect for the nighttime. In the next couple of months those highs will creep into the 90’s and begin to touch 100’s.
100 sounds brutal but it’s not. Zero humidity makes 100 degrees much more pleasant than anyone living in humidity will understand. The dry heat myth isn’t a myth.
The summer has its nice days but it gets a little too warm for my taste and even though I rarely get cold I can’t enjoy the winter days outside like I can in the spring. Sure the fall is nice too but that seems to last only a couple of weeks. Vegas has 2 more months of perfect weather ahead.
This is the best time of the year to live in or visit Vegas.
