Highs and LoewsFrom 5 p.m. every Thursday, the Cascade Lounge at the Loews Ventana Canyon Resort offers women wearing high heels a discount. Just say you're wearing 4-inch heels, and get $4 off your drink. I recently read an article about a stripper in Las Vegas who wore 7.5-inch heels ... I wonder if she would get money back. For the rest of us, there are $5 cocktails and any three tapas for $9, plus live music and occasional live broadcasts by Star 97.5, at 7000 N. Resort Drive; 299-2020.

Largent, aka BeBe--serves an all-you-can-eat Friday fish fry with coleslaw, fries and tartar sauce available from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. for $5.99 at 4001 N. Romero Road; 407-9622.
