I'm going off script, so please bear with me. With the move to the Pac-12, Las Vegas has become a town of increasing importance to BuffNation. Between the annual Pac-12 Basketball Tournament, the forthcoming Las Vegas Classic, the occasional showcase game at the MGM Grand Garden arena, and the possibility of the football team being just average enough to make the Las Vegas Bowl, chances are you loyal Buff fans will be making a trip to LV to watch Colorado sports sometime in the future. Should you do, and a craving for good beer strikes, might I suggest a trip off-Strip for your suds? My favorite beer joint in town, the incredible Aces & Ales, is this week's gameday pub of the week.
|The best beer bar in Vegas. I'm not kidding.|
They've always got a great tap list going, usually with stuff you will be hard pressed to find anywhere else, and have an extensive bottle selection of some of the rarest finds in all of craftdom. As if that wasn't enough, their food menu is a treat, with the Arrogant Bastard steak wrap (steak marinated in AB... hell yeah!) and the deep fried Oreos my personal favorites. Throw that in with a dark, local-focused atmosphere, and it's just a little slice of heaven in the middle of Sin City.
I'm deadly serious, you have to try this place out. Walk away from the craps table. Leave the neon lights behind. You won't find a place more honest and real in all of town. A perfect place to pregame for the whatever event you're in Las Vegas to see.
Happy Friday! Go Buffs, beat the Beavers!
