Border Grill at Mandalay Bay Debuts New Monthly Event: Border Grill Patio Series

First Four Events Scheduled
March 21 | April 22 | May 19 | June 17
 A longtime Las Vegas culinary staple, Border Grill at Mandalay Bay, is launching a new monthly event: Border Grill Patio Series. Designed by executive chef Jamaal Taherzadeh to bring diverse, one-of-a-kind events to Las Vegas tourists and locals, Border Grill Patio Series will fuse the restaurant’s signature tastes with an outside element – literally and figuratively. 
Taking place on the beloved patio at Border Grill, each event in the Border Grill Patio Series will also incorporate something not usually offered at the modern Mexican restaurant. With an event happening each month during the warm weather season, the Patio Series will extend through the summer with the first four events already announced. More detailed information for each event will be unveiled soon.
Tickets for the first event, Spring Break Clam Bake on March 21, can be purchased by calling Border Grill at 702.632.7403 or visiting the website at Ticket information for the following three events will be released soon.

Marking the first day of Spring, and in celebration of the Spring Break excitement that takes over the Las Vegas Strip, Border Grill is throwing a Spring Break Clam Bake party. Featuring a massive bonfire on the patio, the Border Grill team will expertly layer burlap sacks, vegetables, seasonings and a load of seafood to create the most extensive clam bake in recent memory. Not only will the spectacle be enough to have you (and your Instagram followers) in awe, but the heaping portions are guaranteed to leave each attendee beyond satisfied. Join us for this unlimited feast of sustainable clams, crabs and mussels, as well as chorizo, corn and potatoes over hickory applewood. Did we mention bottomless beer, sangria, margaritas and micheladas as well? Tickets are available now at
April 22 
Border Grill Mandalay Bay’s Executive Chef Jamaal Taherzadeh has been participating in local farmers markets throughout the past year. Inspired by local farmers and their sustainable produce, Border Grill is bringing that concept to its Patio Series. During Farm Fresh, attendees will be introduced to a handful of local farmers while simultaneously tasting Border Grill dishes using the farmers’ locally grown produce and ingredients. To top it off, every guest will leave with their own grocery bag of farmer’s market items so they can utilize the locally grown produce in their home kitchens as well.
May 19
Tequila is a cornerstone of many Mexican cultures – and a necessity for anyone dining at Border Grill. When it comes to tequila, whether you take it straight up or in one of our award-winning margaritas, Border Grill has you covered. Tour of Tequilas invites guests to open their palate to the wide array of tequila classifications and brands. Coupled with signature menu items created by executive chef Jamaal Taherzadeh, each taste of tequila will take on a life of its own in this dine around-style event. 
June 17
In partnership with Love FrogKisser – an innovative matchmaking service focused on connecting consciously and finding lasting, real love – Border Grill is hosting Amor à la Carte. This multi-course progressive dinner crafted by Love FrogKisser will travel the country, with the debut event occurring at and tailored for Border Grill Mandalay Bay. Singles are encouraged to purchase tickets and arrive with hope of finding a meaningful connection!
This will not be a random matchmaking event; each single will be contacted by Dallisa Hocking, the founder of Love FrogKisser, to determine the most impactful pairings. Every person will be paired up with someone new for the first four courses, providing the chance to meet four potential partners. The fifth course will be mixer-style, so if a connection strikes in the first four courses, we can turn that spark into a flame! The fifth course will also serve as an opportunity to meet other hopefuls at the event. With Border Grill’s delicious menu offerings threading the night together, some may find that love is the main dish at Amor à la Carte.
