LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) – Life is Beautiful kicks off Friday in downtown Las Vegas, and businesses are showing how they’re preparing for the big crowds.
“We’ve doubled our staff, we’ve doubled our items that we normally prepare, make sure the food is ready to go so we can get to our customers,” said Flippin Good Assistant Manager Steven Rogers.
“We’re staffing up and stocking up,” said Evel Pie general manager Samantha Bandy.
Downtown businesses like Flippin Good and Evel Pie are ready to serve everyone who comes to the area for Life is Beautiful.
“We’re going to have a great pop-up bar outside so you can get your slices to get hot and ready,” Bandy said.
“We have our happy hour special that’s from 3 to 6 as usual and we’re extending it to 7 and we have our small crowns or fivers while they last,” Rogers said.
Both businesses said Life is Beautiful helps bring in extra cash.
“We really need this and it will help business after everything that has happened in the world,” Rogers said. “Business has slowed down a little bit, but this should really help and improve the whole downtown area.”
“Tons of business and people get to actually experience our city, unlike other festivals where people go to the outskirts of a part of town where you can really see the heart of Vegas,” Bandy said.
Downtown businesses are expected to stay open late throughout the weekend to accommodate people attending the event.
