The popular prime rib deal at El Cortez’s restaurant Siegl’s 1941 has seen a price increase with the price being raised by $2 to $12.95 which is one of the better deals in town and does have the advantage over many other similar deals in that its available twenty four hours today. The deal has been going for years and although the price has increased over time its still worth checking out especially as the other prime rib deals Downtown are only between certain hours or late night.
The El Cortez is running a promotion at the moment where if you book a minimum of two nights in either a tower or cabana room you can get the prime rib special mentioned above for free, check with the hotel for more information.
If you miss the $1 Michelob beer special at the Casino Royale on the Strip which is still a good deal at the price now of $2 a bottle, but you can still get the old deal just off the Strip;
To get the deal head over to the Stage Door Bar which is located behind the Cromwell and across the street from Bally’s. The bar is just your basic small bar with slots but if you need a break from the expensive Strip drink prices their is an option not too far away. When you enter the bar they will card everyone so don’t forget to bring your id or passport.
While you are checking out the $1 Michelob beer special you might want to stock up on supplies at the attached convenience store which is less expensive option than the hotel stores.
Finding inexpensive food options on the Strip isn’t always the easiest thing to do although there are a few options. One such option is the Coronado Cafe at the Southpoint Hotel & Casino on the South Strip which is known for its inexpensive food deals. the best of which run from midnight to 6 am. I arrived in Las Vegas early in the morning so stopped at the South Point before i headed further down the Strip for some breakfast after the long drive from Southern California.
The Coronado Cafe is just off the main casino floor and is a large space with high ceilings, it was a little before 6 am so i was able to get seated right away and after scanning the menu i decided on the Steak & Eggs special you can see in the picture above which included a 7 oz New York Steak, hash browns, toast and jelly for $4.95. The steak was really tasty although as you can see you from the picture its long and narrow which is fine and, the rest of the items were good.
If you plan on checking out the late night food specials at the Coronado Cafe at Southpoint a couple of notes the Southpoint Hotel & Casino is on the Strip but its several miles south of the Mandalay Bay so transportation is needed; Also if you add a drink to the deal it can push up the price quite a bit as i added a coffee which cost $3.45 extra but the meal was still a good deal.
I just stayed for three days at the Fremont, while i was there i took advantage of a free buffet promotion which runs through the end of the May. The promotion is for members of the B Connected players club (free to join) to get the free buffet each day you swipe your card first and then play the slots.; Monday through Friday except Wednesday when you earn 100 points you can go back and swipe your players card for a coupon for a free breakfast or lunch buffet.
The coupon must be used the same day and the promotion also runs on the weekends but you have to get 200 instead of 100 points. If you plan to be in Downtown Las Vegas playing slots early in the day anyways its a good deal for more information and rules check with the properties B Connected booth.

Both the above attractions offer a discounted entrance for Nevada residents with state id with a $16.95 rate at the Mob Museum and $18 for the National Atomic Testing Museum so use your id to save some money at these two great attractions.
The $1 beer special at the small center Strip Casino Royale is over as the price has now been raised to $2 for a bottle of Michelob which is still a good deal especially in its center Strip location. For many years you have able to walk up to the bar counter just inside the door and order a Becks or in more recent times a Michelob for a buck, its a shame to see the longtime deal gone. The new $2 price is still a good deal and, is available twenty four hours a day as well as seven days a week like the old deal.
The end of the year in Las Vegas you might think is an expensive time because of all the holidays such as Thanksgiving, Christmas and the huge crowds that come in to town for New Year’s Eve; The answer is yes for those dates the room rates can be expensive and in the case of New Years Eve very expensive but other days at year end can be inexpensive. Dates in November away from Thanksgiving can be reasonable and dates in early December as well as the few days after Christmas can be good bargains just shop around and if you can be flexible check out the monthly rate calendar. One thing to watch out for is the additional daily charge of resort fees, so don’t forget to add them in to your price when you are comparing room rates.
