Local businesses to offer deals and prizes during Super Bowl

The Pahrump area is set to liven up on Sunday as Super Bowl LII watch parties bring raffles, drinks, food and fun to the valley. Several local taverns, casino-hotels and restaurants are ready for fans and the rough and tumble professional football players as they tangle for victory on the TV screen.

Ashley Anderson, marketing director at Nevada Treasure RV Resort, said the resort will be offering a buffet, snacks and the game will be on. This year, the Philadelphia Eagles take on the New England Patriots.

The cost to get into Nevada Treasure RV at 301 W. Leslie St. is $15 up until today and $20 at the door. The party will take place at Mark’s Grill at the clubhouse and in the convention center, where guests will be able to view the game from multiple screens.

Anderson said she wasn’t sure how the party impacted the resort financially. But “depending on how many people come, it’s just a whole lot of fun.”

For those closer to the south end of town, Draft Picks will also be offering festivities, with drawings and giveaways.

Pam Tobias, restaurant manager at Draft Picks, said there’s going to be giveaways such as jerseys, hats and a bunch of Budweiser T-shirts and other items on game night. Food specials and happy hour specials on draft beer will also be available, with multiple screens available to watch the game.

If you want to pick up some special Super Bowl gear, you can stop at the Mobil gas station at Winery Road and Highway 160. The store has specialized products for the 2018 game.

For those watching the game at home, this year’s program will broadcast on your local NBC station, with kickoff at 3:30 p.m. PST on Sunday. Viewers can also see the game stream live at NBCSports.com or from the NBC Sports app on game day.

Pregame shows start at 9 a.m. PST on NBC’s portals, with post-game coverage planned to begin at 7 p.m. PST on Sunday.

The game will be played at the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, home of the Minnesota Vikings.

Wild summer storms whip through Pahrump

As monsoonal moisture made its way across the southwestern portion of the United States over the last couple of weeks, much of the severe weather had missed Pahrump, until the night of Sunday, July 25 when a substantial summer thunderstorm finally broke over the valley, dumping rain and bringing fierce winds that wreaked havoc in certain parts of town, all the while illuminating the dark sky with streaks of lightning for a period of several hours. The storm let up in the late-night hours but revived with ferocity the next day and though wind speeds did not match Sunday’s, the storm on Monday brought even more rain than the previous night and resulted in extensive flooding throughout Pahrump.
