I’m not one to proclaim my love for anything that occurs early in the week. Monday through Wednesday are typically the days which we dread facing. They are a drag on what is otherwise a good flow for a week to have. I may or may not become infamous for my soliloquy-type introductions, but they amuse me all the same. I can appreciate the fondness that Tuesday gets, while in certain geographical regions. I have lived in the Southwest for most of my existence, and our early week respite: Taco Tuesday. But, alas, this is not to highlight the aforementioned Tuesday of Tacos, but something entirely different and awesome to be found here in Las Vegas on Tuesday nights.

The Linq presents Linq Bloq Party every Tuesday night, which, believe it or not, is a celebration for locals to have a good time, while getting some really awesome deals on food, drinks and fun.

These deals are all valid with a Nevada license, so it is truly for you locals and Las Vegans looking for something different, on a Tuesday evening, no less. I highly suggest taking a twilight stroll along the Linq, it is one of the finest walks you can take in Las Vegas, especially taking into account our ever-changing cityscape.

Taking this “Bloq Party” opportunity to the fullest, F.A.M.E. (Food/Art/Music/Entertainment) LV has really taken the chance and brought some really amazing food, art, music and entertainment. From DJs spinning the latest hits, live street performers, and their own in-house crew of Taiko drummers, performing live on the Linq every Tuesday night @ 6pm, 8pm and 9pm (also performing daily, excluding Thursdays.) While drumming in front of a massive and engaged crowd, F.A.M.E. will send out free samples into the crowd, of their delicious teriyaki chicken, fresh fruit smoothies, or a great riff on “Asian fusion pizza,” from the newly opened Pizza Buddha, there is always something exciting to find, spilling out from the incredible doors of F.A.M.E. LV.

As I have been attending the Bloq Party at The Linq, I have noticed that the activities at F.A.M.E. have been repeated, with more vendors and Linq businesses have been following suit, bringing out their own live musicians, live acts and crowd participation. I love this new early-week tradition here in Las Vegas, and while my daughter is in town for the summer, this is a great place to take her to kick up the “early-week drag.” Check out The Bloq Party at The Linq on Tuesday nights, bring the family, and check out F.A.M.E. LV, they are the ones with the Food, Art, Music and Entertainment, trust me, you’ll know when you’re there.
