The Pokemon Go community is thriving in Las Vegas! Here are a few events and specials happening around the Las Vegas valley, so you and your fellow trainers know exactly where to catch 'em all:
GameWorks at Town Square is offering a free 30-minute game card for video and arcade games to anyone who posts a Pokemon GO screenshot on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with #gameworks. Players only need to show the post to one of the GameWorks employees to redeem. Some restrictions do apply.
Several businesses inside Pawn Plaza on Las Vegas Boulevard South are offering specials for Pokemon GO trainers. Inna Gadda di Pizza and Pawn Donut & Coffee are offering 10 percent off each order to any Pokemon GO player who checks in at their location. Pokemon GO players who battle Pokemons at the gym in the Pawn Plaza parking lot will receive $1 off any craft beer on Mondays after showing their profile to the bartender. In addition, Rita's Italian Ice will give trainers 10 percent off on any one treat who shows their app or profile and a 20 percent discount on any one treat to whoever is on the team who controls the gym at Pawn Plaza.
Glutton in downtown Las Vegas is offering Pokemon Go players Poke-style Ahi tuna tacos (sweet chili sauce, frisée, yuzu guacamole and pickled Fresno pepper) for $3 a piece, as well as 2-for-1 beers, every Wednesday beginning this week. Pokémon not only frequently appear at the restaurant, but there are also "gyms" in the Downtown area including the Praying Mantis at the entrance of the Container Park. Nearby PokeStops includes the mural at the back of the Container Park and the wall of The Market Grocery, both of which are steps away from Glutton.
