Lee Ann Rimes enjoys a glass of champagne at Michael Boychuck’s salon Color in Caesar’s Palace while winding down from the rigors of the Michael Jordan Celebrity Gold Tournament with husband Eddie Cibrian. It wasn’t specified what she was sipping but we’d bet it was something from the Moët family, Veuve maybe or perhaps a glass of Dom?
Whatever the case, it’s another great example of celebrities enjoying the unique offerings of Las Vegas in incomparable style.
Whiskey fans and aficionados can be found at Andre’s at Monte Carlo Resort and Casino.
On March 7, the luck o’ the Irish will be evident as Andre’s showcases Jameson Irish Whiskey. Jameson is a single distillery Irish whiskey that combines malted barley with unmalted or “green” barley.
RSVP on Andre’s event post on facebook here.
For an unlimited tasting for two hours, the price per person is $25 in advance or $35 at the door. (702) 798-7151

Originally brewed in 1987 for a customer going through a divorce, Buffalo Bill’s Alimony Ale, an IPA with 6.8% abv and brewed with select “bittering” hops, is now available in the Las Vegas market. Call your local store to see if they have it in stock. Customers call your SWS representative to order it today. “It’s Irreconcilably Different!”

Every year the highlight of Southern Wine & Spirit’s UNLVino fundraiser is The Grand Tasting and this year’s offering will be the biggest EVER.
This year’s event is moving back to the Paris after a year at Bally’s. Personally, I like the Grand Tastings at Paris. The grand ballroom is so large everything is contained in a single room; the auction, the wine, the spirits and the craft beer will all be in one room!
That’s right. You heard correctly. This year’s UNLVino WILL be the largest because in addition to the wine, sparkling wine and sake served at the previous UNLVinos, we will also be serving samples of our ever growing catalog of liquor and craft beer.
Another big change this year is the time. Previous UNLVino’s have always taken place in the afternoon usually ending before most parties begin. That’s not the case this year. For the first time ever the Grand Tasting will be held from 7pm to 10pm!
Yes, you read that correctly friends. The Grand Tasting will be during Prime Time. So you can have a light bite, try some new liquor and wine libations then take the Saturday night party to the club of your choice! Safely… as with previous UNLVino’s we’ll have the breathalyzer booth and Designated Drivers on hand to let you know if you are legally capable of driving and offering you an alternative if you aren’t. Or better yet, grab a room at the Paris or one of the adjoining properties and really make a night of it.
Please share this exciting information with all of your friends and please join us when we “Take a Sip for Charity!’
