Pint's Brewery & Sports Bar

Laughlin, NV
Pint's Brewery & Sports Bar 
Come for the Micro-Brews, maybe stay for the game and  Appetizers

One of our favorite places in the Colorado Belle is Pint's Brewery & Sports Bar.  This is in spite of the feeling that we are "rolling the dice" as to whether the service will be good or bad on any given visit, 
Pint's is usually always good for a beer and a few appetizers.  Usually is the key word, at least for the appetizers this time. 
Decor is Boiler Room since that is what Pint's was called previously


The menu is okay but needs some freshening...just our opinion!

The Regular Five Micro-Brews.  In addition there are usually others also available. 

Our small group ordered some drinks, some appetizers (to share), and a couple burgers.  The burgers were good as always.  Pint's has the option to build your own burger by filling out a form on the table, or choose from those on the menu.  

Chicken Wings and Potato Skins 

Surprisingly, two of the appetizers disappointed this time.  

The Buffalo Chicken Wings are usually really good.  This time they were under cooked, almost to to the point of needing to go back.  No one should eat pink chicken.  One of the wings was not cut and the two parts (the drummie and the regular piece) were still fused together.  

The loaded potato skins were also lacking flavor.  They also served 5 halves, not 6, which prompted someone to ask what they did with the other half of potato.  A couple of the halves were also obviously from "baby" potatoes, they were that small.  For $8.99 not a very good deal.   

Maybe today was an off night for whoever was in the kitchen.  Usually these two appetizers are consistently good.  

After the meal we were thinking perhaps we should of tried a Pizza



22 oz.   $6 
The micro brews were excellent as always.   $6 for a 22oz. and $4.75 for a Pint.  
The Kegs


We have to mention the celery stick and carrot stick shortage and rationing that Pint's has had for as long as we can remember.   No matter how many wings you order you get one of each.   This is kind of hard to make them shareable.   Seriously, would it hurt to add a couple more of each one.  Especially when a dozen wings is $13.99?


One Carrot, One Celery Per Order Only





The Service?   We loved that this time the service was fast and very good.  Very unlike some of our other visits.  Hopefully they keep it up!

We still love the place and will return.  If you have visited Pint's recently and would like to share a review, rant or rave about it, comment below or come join the Laughlin Buzz FB group and share it with us.

Breakfast at Claim Jumper - Golden Nugget Laughlin

Laughlin, Nevada
Golden Nugget Laughlin - Claim Jumper
If you are looking for a good breakfast in Laughlin, NV, Claim Jumper should be on your list. 
Claim Jumper is located on the Casino floor right next to the Atrium at the main entrance.    


We tried the French Toast ($7.99), Steak & Eggs ($13.99), and American Breakfast ($9.99).  All were very big portions and very good.

Very good coffee complimented the breakfast. 




We have to admit we also added a "House" Margarita and a Bloody Mary too.  After all it was the start to the weekend and we just had to try the special!




The special "House" Margarita and a Bloody Mary are offered on Friday through Sunday. They were served in plastic cups unlike the nice glass on the promo picture.  But still pretty good! 

House Margarita and Bloody Mary plus a Raspberry Iced Tea

The dining room was very busy but service was very good, fast, and friendly.  


Many other selections are available for breakfast (which is served all day).

Laughlin Buzz Water Station - Run Laughlin Half Marathon

Laughlin, NV  

Run Laughlin Half Marathon & 5K - Laughlin Buzz Water Station 1 

We had 15 volunteers come out and help at the  Laughlin Buzz Water Station 1





The temperature was hovering around 50 degrees but the winds were 25+ mph with even higher gusts 
as we headed out to Water Station 1 around 6:30am.  

The group had a Holiday theme with beads, jingle bells, mini-cowbells, air horns, and hats.  With the winds, even more importantly everyone had warm winter-type clothing, gloves and plenty of enthusiasm!


Even the sign took some wind despite two sand bags holding it in place. 
Water Station 1 was the first station on the Half Marathon route, located about two and a half miles form the starting line.  The team divided into groups, some handing out cups of water and Powerade, others filling the cups, picking up discarded cups, and cheering on the runners. 





















One of our volunteers did a simulation run before the runners arrived 



The first runner arrived and didn't even slow down.  In fact, the first few dedicated ones in the lead just ran by at a near sprint.  










It wasn't too long afterward that the runners started coming in a steady stream.  






















There were so many that toward the end we even ran out of cups and had to hand out full bottles of water or Powerade. 

In total, between the Half Marathon and 5K there were 866 participants in the Run Laughlin event.

Thank you to everyone who helped out and helped show support for the race and all the runners!







In spite of the cold, it was fun and everyone had a great time.

Hopefully, we will see all our volunteers and even more people back to help again next year.
