Shunock developed the idea of “Mondays Dark” to give back to the community and support local charities in 2013 when he was starring in the hit Broadway musical, Rock of Ages. He enlisted some of his entertainment friends to help, and Mondays Dark was born. The popularity and reach of the fundraisers has continued to grow with charities and performers eager to be involved. By year’s end, 80 nonprofits will have been helped. In 2019, they will hit the $1 million mark in funds raised!

Hofbräuhaus Las Vegas is the only place in Las Vegas where beer lovers can taste the same Oktoberfestbier that is served at Oktoberfest in Munich. The full-bodied lager is brewed to perfection and sports a 6.3 percent alcohol by volume. Oktoberfestbier is imported from the same batches made for the Oktoberfest tent in Munich to Hofbräuhaus locations across the country. Luckily, you don’t need to go to Munich to enjoy this famous flavor. Hofbräuhaus Las Vegas alone serves an average of 22,500 liters per month—that’s 5,943 gallons.
