Fireworks join poolside hangs and refreshing cocktails for a fun summer at Plaza Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The hotel will celebrate its 50th anniversary in conjunction with July 4th by offering an exclusive hotel package, comedy shows and three nights of spectacular fireworks.


The Plaza’s rooftop pool offers a retro, Palm Springs meets classic downtown Las Vegas vibe. Private cabana rental and Cabana 101, which offers bottle service and mixers for $101, are also available.


As the margarita also turns 50, the hotel’s Golden Margarita, made with Sauza Gold tequila, will be $5 at all casino bars this summer. Frozen margaritas in a pool souvenir cup are $29, with discounted refills, and in a souvenir disco ball for $10.


On Friday, July 2, and Saturday, July 3, The Comedy Works at the Plaza welcomes headliners Robert Kelly and Kurt Metzger for an 8 p.m. show. The brightest highlight of the weekend, though, will be the end of each night, July 2–4, with fireworks lighting up the night sky.


Also July 2—4, Plaza’s Independence Weekend package offers a $50 food and beverage credit, up to $50 in free slot play, $75 bingo match play, a complimentary anniversary souvenir and access for two to private rooftop pool parties every night. Book online.

Jackrabbit Filly Review

On a recent trip to Charleston, my group and I decided to have dinner at Jackrabbit Filly. The restaurant serves new Chinese-American cuisine with a southern flair. We booked reservations as the popular spot fills up fast. Jackrabbit Filly opened in 2019 and has since appeared on numerous regional and national best-of lists.
