Super Bowl to bring parties, entertainment to Pahrump

A list of Pahrump casinos, eateries and bars are readying for the “Big Game” on Sunday with discounted drinks, food and other offerings during the main event.

Locals and visitors can drop in at the Pahrump Nugget sportsbook to watch the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams battle it out during Super Bowl LIII. The game kicks off at 3:30 p.m.

Guests will enjoy $2 draft beers and $2 slices of pizza while they check out the game on a 165-inch, high-definition projection screen or one of several high-definition plasma TVs. Prizes will be available throughout the game with each beverage purchased garnering an entry; a purchase of a draft domestic or craft beer gets two entries.

Sullivan’s Pub at 2450 W. Mesquite Ave. will also have the Super Bowl party and will host a pot luck and have the game on.

Mark’s Grill, inside Nevada Treasure RV Resort, will be hosting a Super Bowl party for the big game. The resort is located at 301 W. Leslie St. in Pahrump.

Tickets are $15 per person and available at the front desk of the resort; management prefers tickets be purchased in advance of event. For more information, call the resort at 775-751-1174.

According to a post on social media, the party will be in the convention center, where there will be drawings, food and a cash bar, and, of course, a place to watch the game.

For viewers looking to stay at home and watch the game, the Super Bowl will broadcast on the local CBS station. Viewers can also see the game streamed live at CBSSports.com or from the CBS Sports app on game day.

Other options are available for watching the big game in Pahrump.

Vince Neil’s Tatuado Wild Side Tavern at 2101 will be hosting a party on game day.

Attendees can expect nine high-definition TVs with surround sound, $2 bottles of domestic beers and $2 draft beers, along with specials on buckets of beer, according to the tavern’s Facebook page. Food and Super Bowl giveaways will also be a part of the party that starts at 3 p.m. on Sunday.

The Super Bowl could bring a lot of action for retailers as well in Nevada.

The Retail Association of Nevada estimated that 1.7 million Nevadans will tune in to watch the “big game” on Sunday.

But to prepare, the association estimates that Nevadans will spend nearly $140 million on food, TVs, decorations and apparel and other items, the retail association noted in a news release. The Retail Association of Nevada cited a survey by the National Retail Federation for the estimate.

“Super Bowl Sunday is the perfect storm of entertainment, family time and retail sales,” said Bryan Wachter, senior vice president of the Retail Association of Nevada. “Nevada retailers are stocked with plenty of food, drinks and gear to make this year’s Super Bowl one to remember.”

The National Retail Federation’s survey contained estimates showing that 182.5 million Americans plan to tune into the big game on Sunday.

Overall, viewers plan to spend an average of $81.30 on items that will enhance their experience watching the game. That’s up 0.2 percent from 2018’s $81.17 average.

Viewers in the West are expected to have the second highest average spending for the Super Bowl at $84.01 per person. The West is followed by the South ($79.09) and the Midwest ($69.24). Consumers in the Northeast are the biggest spenders with an average spend of $94.89 per person.

For fans looking to pick up some team gear, the Winery Super Mart at 2301 Winery Road had a selection of clothing and other items.

Wagering on the Super Bowl is also expected to be higher this year.

“According to the Nevada Gaming Control Board, gross wagering on the Super Bowl totaled $158.6 million in 2018,” the Retail Association stated in a news release. “In addition to traditional retail spending forecasts, RAN projects gross wagering to top $160.7 million this year in Nevada.”

This may not be an exhaustive list of events and parties. Check individual businesses for Super Bowl activities and businesses.
