If you were told to pick out the most uneventful month of the year, your mind may immediately think of third month. For whatever reason, this month just has a feeling of endlessness to it. What shouldn't come as a surprise, though, is that if you're spending your long March days in Las Vegas, the month can be salvaged. With the Irish holiday of St. Patricks Day and the springtime weather starting to roll in, there is plenty to do in a Las Vegas.
One of the busiest places in the month of March is Fremont Street in the north. Due to the ethnic connotation of its namesake, Fremont Street is the place to be when St. Patrick's Day rolls around. Annually, the busy street is home to an overabundance of drunken fools and green beer – all of which mix perfectly to create the desired Irish-infused nightlife. Matching Fremont Street in culture is the Rio-based restaurant and bar, McFadden's. On any normal day, McFadden's is strewn thick with individuals looking to done one thing – drink. Mix in drink specials, contests, and a holiday obligation to celebrate and you have a party that begs to be matched.
Though St. Patrick's Day may take most of the focus, sport fans are willing to overlook the green-infused holiday for something a little closer to their hearts. Basketball fans will be making the best of their nights in many of Sin City's sports bars as they divulge in March Madness. Though it may seem unusual, but the month long basketball event also brings around an increase in attendance to some of Las Vegas' top strip and night clubs. While it helps that some clubs like XS and Marquee will be holding the events, it seems that after a stressful day of betting in the sports books people are inclined to spend more money on a relaxing lap dance.
Since March (in Las Vegas, at least) signifies the coming of spring, you should expect to be breaking out of your winter parkas and briefly slipping into a light windbreaker. A few weeks into the month, and you'll start seeing some of the resort pools along the Strip opening their doors to the public. While most of the pool party's occur during the day, the pools (private and public) are open well into the night and give off a nice aura of relaxation with soft lighting, a continuous string of house music, and plenty of liquor. Since you survived yet another winter, you should treat yourself to a night in one of the many lavish pools – and if it gets a little chilly for you, the sight of the many bikinis surrounding you should help get your blood pumping.
On its surface, March doesn't seem to have much to offer. For most of the nation, it's just another cold month that must be survived before being able to enjoy the sunshine and warm weather. In the City of Entertainment, though, March is another month stock piled with parties and events. From the green beer of St. Patrick's Day to the high end liquor served at any of the resort pools, Las Vegas' liquid entertainment will flow through the month like a river.
