August’s dining events you don’t want to miss

McFadden’s

From July 18. Shamrocks and shenanigans return to Las Vegas with the recent opening of McFadden’s Irish Restaurant and Saloon in its new Town Square location. Famous for its Irish-American cuisine, the menu will feature things like the Pickle Back Burger (a Jameson Irish Whiskey-glazed beef patty topped with Applewood smoked bacon, pepper jack cheese, and fried pickles); plenty of Irish draft on tap; 80-ounce fishbowl cocktails; and a “bomb” shots menu. Expect bustling happy hours and wild, late-night debauchery both inside and outside on the 6,000 square-foot patio across from AMC Theaters.

National Filet Mignon Day

Aug. 11-15. Silverado Steakhouse is grilling up a weeklong celebration in honor of this meaty occasion. Enjoy a three-course specialty menu including lobster bisque or wedge salad, your choice of six different filet mignon options, like the Rossini (topped with duck liver, black truffle and maidera sauce), the Carpet Bagger (marinated in a merlot reduction), or a trio of gourmet sliders and a summer dessert for $49. Available August 11-15. 797-8075

 

Restaurant Week

Aug. 23-30. Three Square’s Restaurant week is back. Visit any participating restaurant — like Don Vitos, Primarily Prime Rib and Ron’s Steakhouse — this week and enjoy a multi-course, prix fixe menu especially created for the food bank’s fundraiser. Each restaurant will craft its own special menu ranging from $20.13 to $50.13, and a portion of the proceeds will help Three Square to fight hunger in Southern Nevada. Seriously philanthropic foodies can help create awareness by posting photos on social media. helpoutdineoutlv.org

 

Greek Food Festival

Sept. 27-29. Get your Greek on. St. John the Baptist Greek Orthodox Church is having its 41st annual festival all weekend long. Enjoy traditional Greek cuisine and pastries, browse through Greek shops for art and jewelry, dance to live music by the Olympians and Etho Ellas, and bring the kids along for games and fun. Daily admission is $6 or $10 for a weekend pass. Kids under 12 and military families (with ID) get in free. 3p-11p Friday and Saturday; noon-10p Sunday. lasvegasgreekfestival.com
