Punk Rock Bowling

"Also, the Golden Nugget poker room will play host to a Punk Rock Poker tournament"

Punk Rock and Bowling are two things I happen to enjoy. Add them together and throw in a few days in Las Vegas and I’m a pretty happy girl, actually a very happy girl. Started a little over a decade ago, Punk Rock Bowling has grown into a three day event which takes over Downtown Vegas with a storm of fans and bands.

Featuring countless bands from the history of Punk Rock, there’s sure to be a show to suit every fan. The music festival features eight bands performing each day in an outdoor festival setting (all ages, with adult accompaniment) and then there will be several late night club shows in smaller venues each night (21+ only, sorry kiddos).

If you want to get involved in more than the music, there’s also the namesake bowling tournament where a couple hundred 4 person teams vie for the prize. (The waitlist for a lane can be a pretty crazy experience, so if you want a shot, get to it early.)

Also, the Golden Nugget poker room will play host to a Punk Rock Poker tournament.

This Texas Hold Em poker tournament was added a few years back and has been growing in popularity ever since. The buy in is $100 plus a $20 registration fee (21+ please) and will go till your chips are gone. Seating is done at random, so make sure to come early.  Buy in is paid in advance.

Punk Rock Bowling 2012 takes place May 25-28 in downtown Las Vegas. http://www.punkrockbowling.com/
