Harrah’s Entertainment is sponsoring this year’s golf tournament in memory of Bill Endow. Mr. Endow was only 6 years old when he was placed in a concentration camp with 115,000 other Asian Americans during WWII. He went on to receive an engineering degree from Oregon State University and served as a commissioned officer in the U.S. Army. His friends remember him for his dedication to his community serving as VP for the Asian Chamber, Board Member for the Pacific Coalition for Education and Volunteer in the Clark County School District. Proceeds from this golf tournament provide scholarships for Asian American High School Seniors with high academic achievement and with  the aspiration to pursue a college education.

Ladies Night with ISVodka at The Grape, LV

LADIES come and sip on your favorite free ISVodka martini tonight at The Grape Bar & Restaurant in Las Vegas from 6-10pm, Tuesdays, August 4, August 11 and August 18.

We’d like to introduce you to our fine, ultra-premium vodka. Everyone raves about how smooth it is. ISVodka is so pure you can even drink it straight up or on the rocks. Hard to do with most vodkas. ISVodka’s secret is its water. We searched the world over and found a 20,000 year old glacier in the “Beautiful Valley” on the Eastern side of Iceland. The water is naturally purified through “eskers,” layers of sand, clay and gravel in the glacier. Local Icelanders extract the water in a sustainable manner.

ISVodka is also distilled 7 times. That’s 4 more times than most vodkas! Meaning you won’t be drinking any impurities or have a nasty burn sensation in your throat when your drinking your favorite martini. Finally, we take all our ingredients – water, European wheat and a third secret ingredient and distill them in a copper still called “Jenny.” This is a very special still which dates back to the 1800’s. It gives our vodka an additional unique, hand-crafted taste.

Stop by The Grape Bar and Restaurant in the busy Town Square Mall off Las Vegas Boulevard. The Grape serves Mediterranean style cuisine including small plates, tapas and cheese plates. You’ll enjoy the outdoor patio with misters (for Vegas Summer heat) where you can people-watch to your delight. Great place to relax and enjoy an ISVodka martini after a busy afternoon of shopping.

  • Third, our Master Distiller, Peter McKay puts in a secret ingredient, but it’s a secret!
  • Fourth, we distill our vodka 7 times leaving no impurities to taste.
  • Fifth, we package our vodka in an award-winning bottle, shaped like an icicle from Iceland.

Bring your friends to sample the new vodka from Iceland, ISVodka, at Lee’s Discount Liquor tonight, Friday, July 24 from 5:30-8:30pm.

You’ll love our bottle too. We recently won the 2009 American Package Design Award. Our design was inspired by the icicles and fairy folk lore of Iceland. A beautiful emblem embossed with an angel sits on every bottle. As a matter of fact, most people keep the bottle to reuse as a vase or oil and vinegar bottle. When you see it, you’ll know why.

Lee’s Discount Liquor is one of the largest liquor chains in the Las Vegas valley. They currently have 15 stores in Vegas with plans for expansion. Lee’s Liquor was started by Hae Un Lee of Korea and is now operated by his son Kenny Lee. Year after year they win the Best of Las Vegas by the Review Journal.
