Dry January: Where to Find Alcohol Alternatives

This is a supplemental resource to a four-part series highlighting the ‘who’, ‘what’, ‘why’, ‘how’ and, of course, ‘where’ of observing Dry January.

Week One: Cheers to Dry January: Reasons Las Vegans Take an Alcohol Hiatus

Week Two: Dry January: Understanding Options for Sober and Sober-Curious Las Vegans

Week Three: coming Friday, January 27, 2023

Week Four: coming Friday, February 3, 2023

A growing list of where we have been going and what we have been drinking, no alcohol required!

Most of these are standard offerings and will continue after January. We will do our best to keep the information as current as possible.
