So what’s on in Vegas this month? Well, I’m coming to town for my March Madness visit but if that’s not enough there’s always:
The Universal Whiskey Experience from March 2nd to 5th at Encore, a Glenlivet dinner at Joel Robouchon in the MGM Grand, a High Roller Whisky speed dating event at Tableau, opportunities to meet with the best whiskey distillers in the world, masters classes and more. Private tastings for rare drams valued at $3,000 or more are also available if you’ve got the cash. The total value of whiskies being showcased at Encore this year is more than $3 million.
USA Sevens International Rugby Tournament from March 4th to 6th at the Sam Boyd Stadium with 16 international teams playing 45 matches over the course of the three day competition.
NASCAR Sprint Cup Series from March 4th to 6th at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway with the Kobalt 400 and Boyd Gaming 300 to name but two. Four days of fun also away from the circuit including NASCAR merchandise booths and free nightly entertainment, as part of the 13th Annual RaceJam at the Fremont Street Experience.
March Madness / Mayhem etc from March 15th to 20th with ball parties at so many venues it would be pointless trying to list them.
St. Patrick’s Day on March 17th because you need a reason to get pissed in Vegas, right? For our American cousins pissed in this context means inebriated not angry.
Monster Jam World Finals XVII also at the Sam Boyd Stadium from March 17th to 19th with more than 100 gas-guzzling trucks and drivers participating in racing, freestyle competitions, meet and greets, interviews and more.
Comic Con from March 18th to 20th at the Las Vegas Convention Centre. Don’t tell my daughter as she attends as many of these things as she can and she’ll be cross with me if she finds out I’ll be in the city and she’s missing one.
That should be enough to be getting on with.
