The Las Vegas Grand Prix is almost here and not without plenty of controversy. Still, it’s happening, and when it does, you’ll be able to enjoy a cocktail Daniel Ricciardo-style by skipping the glass and drinking right out of a driving shoe. Yes, MGM Resorts just announced that the Bellagio will have its very own Shoey Bar. Describing the Shoey Bar, MGM Resorts says:
At the Shoey Bar, we invite you to tap into that exhilarating feeling of victory, immersing yourself in the very essence of your favorite sport. Slip into our genuine MGM-branded driving shoes, fill them with your beverage of choice, and raise a triumphant toast, just like your racing heroes do on the podium. Experience the rush, savor the glory, and celebrate your passion for racing with us!
Since both Elizabeth Blackstock and Ryan King will be at the Las Vegas Grand Prix, they are now officially required to do shoeys together and report back. After all, we can’t have two Jalopnik writers in the same vicinity as a shoey bar and not get at least one video out of it. That would be a dereliction of their duty as journalists, and we will not stand for it.
