Green Beer and Carmen Electra

St. Paddy’s Day’s forecast: mayhem on the Strip. That’s why you’ll be ringing in the festivities above all that, from a garden terrace overlooking the Bellagio Fountains—starting at 9am sharp. Rounding out a full day’s worth of refinement: green beer and Carmen Electra.

A Massive Ode to Comfort Food

Nothing like a helping of all-American comfort food to mitigate the effects of too much Irish pride. So you’ll hit up this nearly 4,000-foot indoor-outdoor dining room, filled with the familiar scent of bacon-wrapped, apricot-stuffed dates. (Okay, maybe not that familiar.)
