Las Vegas is the land of excess.
There, one Cirque du Soleil show would not suffice; presently, there are eight Cirque extravaganzas playing around town.
It’s not enough to offer a buffet with a couple dozen salad, meat and dessert choices. The Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars Palace now provides guests with more than 500 options.
And operating a hotel on the famous Las Vegas Strip is so… 1980. Today, there are hotels within hotels, such as The Hotel at Mandalay Bay, and the Nobu Hotel at Caesars.
So, it should come as no surprise that when the operators of Las Vegas’ Springs Preserve decided a few years ago to organize a festival featuring adult beverages, they did not opt for beer or wine, but rather for both.
And they’ve decided to do it again, announcing that the 2013 Springs Preserve Grapes & Hops Festival will be held on October 5, from 5 to 9 p.m.
The event will spotlight an array of handcrafted beers and some of the West Coast’s top wines, accompanied by food from some of the city’s hottest restaurants and live music.
Better still, it’s all for a great cause, as proceeds will benefit Par for the Cure, a group that raises funds for breast cancer research.
Tickets will be $50 at the gate, but you can save $10 by purchasing in advance, or $30 by buying a pair ahead of time. At $70 per couple for four hours of food, drink and entertainment, that’s an inexpensive way to spend an evening in America’s entertainment capital.
