Hot In Vegas: Monday Night Football and Pool Convention

Monday night football will soon be a regular occurrence at many sports bars. However, Scoreswill be hosting their preseason party tonight. What’s so great about that? Glad you asked. For starters, it’s Scores, specials on Wild Turkey and Budweiser Select, and a complimentary tailgate buffet. That sounds almost to good to be true…but it IS true. Sweet!
If that does tickle your fancy, the American PoolPlayers Association begins their convention today as well at the Riviera. Pool enthusiasts from all over will probably be there. If that includes you, you should be there, too.
Now, while you’re here, check out this weekend’s shows: Raw Music Room, Road to 74, and Elvis.
