Budweiser Clydesdales Coming to Hard Rock Hotel

Budweiser Clydesdales Coming to Hard Rock Hotel

Some of the most recognizable horses in the world will be making an appearance at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino this weekend.

The Budweiser Clydesdales will be at the hotel Saturday through Tuesday. The public will be able to see the horses and enjoy any Budweiser product for just $5 between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m.

The famous horses are here for the annual convenience store convention and expo at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

The horses must meet specific qualifications to become a Budweiser Clydesdale, including: six foot at the shoulder, bay in color, white legs, white on the face and a black mane. It is also important for the Clydesdales to have a gentle temperaments because they make hundreds of public appearances a year and are seen by millions of people.

You're Not Going Anywhere With That Cupcake, Ma'am

You're Not Going Anywhere With That Cupcake, Ma'am

 

PEABODY, Mass. (AP) -- The federal Transportation Security Administration is defending its decision to confiscate a frosted cupcake from a Massachusetts woman flying from Las Vegas.

The TSA says in a blog comment posted Monday the cupcake was packed in a jar filled with icing, which is considered a gel under a policy designed to secure travelers from terrorists seeking to evade detection by using explosives made of plastics, liquids or gels.

Peabody resident Rebecca Hains was barred from taking her cupcake onto a plane last month when a TSA agent said icing in the jar exceeded amounts of gels allowed in carry-on luggage. Hains has called that "terrible logic."

The TSA says travelers can take cakes, pies and cupcakes through security checkpoints but should expect they might get additional screening.
