This Sunday is Mother’s Day in the United States and most Las Vegas resorts and restaurants have special menu’s just for Mother’s Day. One such special menu is at Oscar’s Steakhouse in Downtown Las Vegas at the Plaza Hotel & Casino.
The Mother’s Day menu at Oscar’s starts with a heirloom tomato salad- buratta, red wine vinaigrette and basil for $14. The entrée is crispy branzino- arugyla, capers with buree blanc for $49.
If you want to pair an appetizer or side with your meal they are also offering a truffle risotto- parmesan, black tuffle and chive for $15.
On Mother’s Day restaurants get pretty busy so I would recommend reservations as soon as possible and, all prices do not include taxes and fees and of course tips.

After last years temporary equestrian facility for the National Finals Rodeo at the Plaza became so popular it will return again this year for the rodeo in December but the difference is that it will stay up and become a permanent attraction. The new event center will be a space for outdoor equestrian and multipurpose center as well as having 80 horse stalls for year round use.
The addition of a permanent facility may seem unusual especially in downtown but the National Finals Rodeo does bring big crowds that like to gamble and, if you have the space why not keep the event center up year round. The main competition for this new event center with equestrian is the south strip South Point resort with its huge equestrian arena.
