12 Las Vegas Things to Be Thankful For on Thanksgiving

It’s Thanksgiving, and we’re feeling appreciative for lots of things Las Vegas has to offer.

1. Lucky’s Coming Back to O’Sheas

We’re not just happy O’Sheas is coming back at The Linq, we’re doubly happy Lucky the Leprechaun (Brian Thomas) will be returning, too. This little dude with a big heart knows how to host a party.

Lucky’s been around, there just hasn’t been an O’Sheas for him to be around in. O’Sheas opens in December at The Linq.

2. Vegas Ink

While we don’t personally have any tats, we appreciate some great Vegas-themed ink.

A little Flamingo, a little Vegas Vicky.

3. “Sirens of TI” Has Been Put Out of Our Misery

Honestly, it was about time this clunker of a show at Treasure Island was scuttled. Are we thrilled it was closed to make way for a shopping mall? Not really, but “Sirens of TI” was one of the few shows in Las Vegas that could make a pharmacy seem entertaining.

We’re fams of eye candy, but we’re still thankful somebody mercifully pulled the plug on “Sirens of TI.”

4. Gelato

Las Vegas has some of the best gelato in the known universe, and for that, and treadmills, we’re forever thankful.

Gelato

“Gelato” is the Italian word for ice cream. It just sounds so much more romantic than ice cream.

5. Downtown Grand

Anytime a new hotel opens in Las Vegas, like the recently-unveiled Downtown Grand, we’re thankful. There are new restaurants to try, new gaming chips to collect and new mattresses to jump on. Not that we’d do that, of course.

Downtown Grand is in downtown Las Vegas. It’s cleverly named like that.

6. Liquid Lapdance

Liquid Lapdance is a special undergarment to enhance the lapdance experience. ‘Nuff said.

A thousand times, thank you.

7. High Roller

The High Roller is the world’s tallest observation wheel. We might have mentioned it a time or two in this Las Vegas blog.

We loves our Precious.

8. Sin City Doesn’t Give a Damn

Las Vegas has always gotten high marks for sass, and we’re thankful that feisty spirit never abates. If you’re looking for political correctness, you’re simply in the wrong place.

When it comes to being itself, you just can’t lick Las Vegas.

9. SlotZilla Zip Line

The SlotZilla zip line attraction in downtown Las Vegas is nearing completion, and it’s a doozy.

Las Vegas has got the creation of larger-than-life attractions wired.

10. Extraordinary Meat

In Las Vegas, it seems like there’s a spectacular steak around every corner. You can get tasty filet mignon, get steak at a restaurant that doubles as a nightclub, and Las Vegas even has a cut of beef named after it.

The seafood in Las Vegas rates a mention, too, of course.

11. Social Lubricants

They come in all shapes, sizes and flavors, and we’re thankful for them all.

Cocktail

Las Vegas has a boundless bounty of booze.

12. Hotties

They come in all shapes, sizes and flavors, and we’re thankful for them all.

There are no words to express our appreciation. Thankfully, they also accept tips.

So, let’s hear it. What Las Vegas things are you thankful for?

Have a great Thanksgiving, and thanks for visiting this humble Las Vegas. It means the world to us.
