Monday Mise en Place: Sex and the City 2 Brings Cocktail Specials Aplenty to Las Vegas

Yes, I have an unblemished 30-year record of heterosexuality, and I can’t wait for this Thursday for Sex and the City 2 to hit the silver screen.  Apparently, the rest of Las Vegas can’t wait for Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, Miranda and Mr. Big (John J. Preston, to those in the know) either, with a whole slew of cocktail specials commemorating the much-anticipated sequel.

SKYY Vodka is offering exclusive cocktails to MGM Mirage properties as Aria will be hosting an invite-only screening of the movie the day before it’s broad release.  The five cocktails representing the five main characters will benefit the Nevada Cancer Institute for all sales for the rest of the month.

First Food and Bar at the Palazzo resort will be featuring Cosmopolitans during their usual Thursday Ladies Night starting at 8pm, which I will argue that on May 27th; we are all ladies.

Also, the ultimate cougar den in town, the Blue Martini will be of course having a whole series of parties, one of which has a 1-hour Open Bar for Ladies with ticket stubs on Friday, the 28th starting at 6pm.

In the spirit of opening week, I am hereby offering this cocktail I designed, based off of one of my favorite lines in Sex and the City history, to anyone with the free time on their hands to make it.  It is chilled Bailey’s Irish Creme served muddled with fresh raspberries and basil, served in a martini glass and garnished with a spear of asparagus.  I call it; The Funky Spunk.

Since we’re on the subject of booze, Wolfgang Puck’s CUT at the Palazzo resort has begun a “Summer Stimulus” Happy Hour that runs Sunday-Thursday from 5pm-7pm.  Select appetizers and cocktails will all be priced at $7.  Some of the treats include New York Steak Skewers with Chimichurri, Kobe Beef Sliders and a “Pearfect” Martini.

Along with Carrie putting on the Manolos one more time on Thursday the 27th, Summerlin is getting a brand new frozen yogurt joint with Chill: A Yogurt Bar.  It is a self-serve, pay by the ounce place that features 10 flavors.  Chill: A Yogurt Bar is located at 3555 S. Town Center Drive, Suite 103. You can follow Chill on Twitter at @ChillYogurtBar

Opening it’s doors today at 7am (I only occasionally see this hour from the other side) was The Beat Coffeehouse, part of the new Emergency Arts center on the corner of Fremont St. and 6th Ave.  Not much is up online about the coffeehouse, but you can follow The Beat on Twitter at @TheBeatLV.

Congratulations to friend on Twitter, @TalaMcDonnough, for her debut over the weekend being featured in a national commercial for Cici’s Pizza.  As I told Tala on Twitter, if there is anyone on Earth that could ever get me to eat Cici’s Pizza, it would be her!  If you’d like her to autograph a pizza box, go check her out as she does her thing as a Dirty Virgin Dancer with Matt Goss at Caesars Palace.  To quote Borat, “Wa wa wee wa!”

And while we’re giving shoutouts to loyal members of the TLV Army on Twitter, I would be remiss if I did not give a shoutout to @CynthiaInguanzo, a pastry chef at the MGM Grand who posted this picture of a dessert Bento Box she made for the MGM Grand restaurant, Pearl.  I didn’t get to taste it, but I did lick the computer screen a few times to try…just sayin’.  Behold….

  • “Yes, I have an unblemished 30-year record of heterosexuality, and I can’t wait for this Thursday for Sex and the City 2 to hit the silver screen.”

    Well, I have an unblemised 23 year record of homosexuality , and I’m glad to see this up today! :-D

    And really, I feel really tempted to crash that “ladies’ night” at First… I need me some cocktails and good grub!

  • Well this settles it, I’m going to have to organize an event with specials for men and women for when the 3rd movie comes out! Us guys that enjoy a little Sex and the City and the occasional Cosmo are people too! Thanks for reading!
