Public House has unveiled Pub Club, a beer passport program the invites ale aficionados to complete a card of 50 different beers (25 of them on tap). Patrons who sign up and knock back the 50 brews receive a Public House T-shirt and $50 to spend at the Venetian eatery. The Weekly recommends not attempting this in one fell swoop. —Mark Adams
Congrats go out to RM Seafood bartender J.R. Starkus, who won the Vegas round of Campari’s Best Aperitivo cocktail competition. Next up, Starkus will take on 23 other winners during the Manhattan Cocktail Classic on May 13, with the eventual victor bagging a trip to Beijing to compete internationally.
Now through April 30, PT’s and Sierra Gold are giving members of their Beer & Bites and Golden Rewards clubs the chance to see Carlos Santana at House of Blues for the price of a shot of tequila. For the month of April, every Casa Noble drink purchased (or every 10 points earned) gets you one entry to win a pair of tickets to the legendary musician’s new local residency. The bars will be giving away 10 pairs of tickets, so get in and start drinking.
Soon couples will have an exclusive place to party the day away off the Strip. Starting April 28, the Artisan’s Naked Pool will host Evolve, a “couples only” topless party every Saturday from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Cover will be charged per pair, with local duos netting a discount for the sexy bash. —Sarah Feldberg, editor
