The Triple 7 in Main Street Station; Brew Pub

So, it's not technically on Fremont Street, but it's right around the corner. (Go to the West End of Fremont, to the Plaza on Main Street, and bang a right ... it's very short jaunt)

I've been dying to check out the Triple Seven inside Main Street Station, so when the opportunity presented itself (read no children) we went for it.

Why was I so interested? THEY BREW THEIR OWN BEER!

Having not entered an actual brew pub in my last 3 years on the west coast, this was very exciting to me.

There was a little bit of a wait, 10 minutes or so - no problem, afterall, it was Saturday night. The staff was friendly enough, but busy. The biggest suprize was the food prices. Lots of offerings on the menu clocked in at about $7.50, and I don't think anything even hit the $20 mark, so if you are on a tight budget this place is a no brainer.

OK, now the beer. Just get the sampler. There was a Red, A Pale Ale, Lager, Stout and the special, which happened to be a Mango flavored job. (am I missing one?) All of which were fantastic and tasted precisely like they should. Even the mango. Now I'm not a big fan of the whole Belgian Fruit beer craze, and mango sounded just plain wierd - but it was pretty darn tasty. A very well thought out brew, honestly.

Dinner was good too. An appetizer (garlic fries) 2 entrees (steak & shrimp and the fish and chips), a Coke, a pint and the sampler ran us right around $40 bucks. Thats a steal.

I love downtown! You can keep the Strip. (our original plan was to head to Mandalay Bay after dinner to catch Mama Mia - but after the beers we wandered around Fremont St. and checked out the free Riders of the Thunderdome show (right down by the Plaza Hotel and Casino - Las Vegas ) instead. Mama Mia can wait.

I forgot to metntion the TVs. They encircle the entire dining room and play sports. Two bars also offer seating on a first come basis. I also believe I spotted a sushi bar in the corner, but hey, I had been drinking.
