Five places to watch the big game on Monday night

Monday night football can be a personal thing with some people. Some folks like to relax with family, friends and people they know at a cozy neighborhood establishment and avoid all the noise of the big casinos. Here are five great places to enjoy Monday night football in Pahrump, where they might just know your name.

Keoki’s Wings N Things is a friendly place with 17 screens to watch the game. There is a bar area and a restaurant area. Not only do they have the screens, but they also have the food and drink to cheer you up if your team is losing. This place also has jersey and hat giveaways on Monday and Thursday. There is no need to purchase a ticket for the drawing, you get one for showing up or if you get a drink or buy food you will get an additional ticket to increase your odds of winning.

Nick Moore, a partner in the restaurant, said even though he is biased, the food is fantastic.

“We also not only just serve beer,” he said. “Beer is a mainstay for Monday night football, but the ladies that go to the game like places that serve cocktails and we have those.”

Moore also said the restaurant has a great Monday night football platter.

“This thing is just huge and it tastes great,” Moore said. “It’s unbelievable.” The platter Moore is talking about is $44 and includes a mixture of wings, sliders, coleslaw, ribs, and macaroni and cheese. There is another platter that feeds 6-8 people for $80. Keoki’s is located on 1301 S. Loop Road. For more information call 775- 751-8261.

Although the Bounty Hunter Saloon’s claim to fame is being a Seahawks bar, owner Daryl Keppner said everyone is welcome. The saloon has six screens and one outdoors and has a lot of giveaways.

“I guarantee I have more prizes than any place in town,” Keppner said. “We give away all sorts of unique NFL items that you will not find anywhere else. For instance, this week I have a Minnesota nutcracker that I will give away the first game.”

Along with the prizes the bar is offering $6 beer pitchers and 50-cent wing specials. The saloon is located on 680 East St. For more information call 775-513-3370.

Draft Picks says they do the NFL right for Monday night football. This family-friendly place has a full bar and a restaurant that is kid friendly. The restaurant even has a bowling alley to entertain the kids. On Monday night they have an NFL gear giveaway which includes hats and jerseys. A vendor will be there on Monday nights for those that want to also buy gear.

Don’t forget this place also has great pizza.

The top specials at Draft Picks would be chili and cheese fries for $6.95, two hot dogs and chips for $5 and two pork sliders and chips for $6. The drink special is $2 16-ounce Miller Lights.

Draft Picks is located on 1101 S. Highway 160. For more information contact 775-727-5100.

The Water Rock Bar and Grill has over 25 years of experience serving customers. The newly-configured Water Rock is ready to take on Monday night football with its new pirate theme. The bar has two screens for close-quarter dueling with other patrons to see whose team is better. Owners Ray and Sandy are now wearing eye patches. Their Monday night special will be Pirate Dogs and a 16-ounce beer for $4. They will also offer Pirate Wings, 8 for $7. All scallywags are being asked to come in to name your favorite team drink and it will be added to the drink menu. They also have a contest to come up with a new logo. In other words, put the pig in pirate garb and you can win $50. The Water Rock is located on the north end of town at 780 E. Simkins Road. For more information call 775-727-6600.

Paddy’s Pub is a comfortable neighborhood place where almost everyone knows your name. This establishment has been undergoing renovations and is now well lit and full of music and drink. The pub has 10 high-definition screens to watch the game on Monday night and offers a variety of drink specials for the football fan, $3 fireball shots, $10 bucket of beer (Bud Lite and regular Bud), $4 for a 48-ounce pitcher of Rolling Rock or Coors. The pub also offers a drawing with a drink purchase and you can win a jersey. For those that like shots, there is also a new fun way to take a shot with friends, called the Shotski. It’s $20 and can accommodate four friends and four shots. Paddy’s is located on 1700 Pahrump Valley Blvd. For more information call 775-727-6676.
