Satisfy Your Booze Cravings At The Mirage

When a 64-ounce novelty drink just isnít enough to get you through a two-hour gorge-a-thon, opt for unlimited drinks with your buffet. Las Vegas is known for endless buffets so the next logical indulgent step would be to add free-flowing drinks. The Mirage buffet, Cravings, is the next to hop on this beer-and-wine bandwagon.

Upgrade your experience with all-you-can-drink Bud Light, Goose Island IPA and Liberty Creek wines to satisfy all of your cravings at no extra cost. Wine options currently include chardonnay, cabernet sauvignon, and white zinfandel. (Despite being one of the cheapest wines on the shelf, Liberty Creek is surprisingly drinkable.) Lunch at Cravings is priced at $23.99 and dinner is $30.99 ($34.99 on weekends), including drinks.

Most properties offering unlimited drinks charge for them. Mirage joins LVH in offering this enhancement for free.

Other Strip properties have a similar add-on for an additional cost. Bellagioís unlimited drinks include margaritas, bloody marys, sparkling wine or beer for an extra $12.99. Ariaís, also priced at $12.99, includes mimosas, bellinis, bloody marys, sangria, champagne, premium beer and wine. Wynnís is a little pricier at $15 for champagne, mimosas, wine and draft Budweiser.

The most important thing to remember, especially for Vegas first-timers, is that this is a marathon and not a sprint! Downing 10 mimosas with breakfast might make it hard to navigate the Strip later in the day. The savvy tourist (or budget-minded local, for that matter) would be wise to opt for one of these inclusive packages at a buffet like Cravings for a late dinner and take advantage of the unlimited drinks before a night out at a club, where one drink can cost as much as an entire buffet.

Marathon

I'm heading out there with my fiance in April and I have been repeating the marathon, not a sprint line to her for a few months.  It's the classic rookie mistake.

Marathon not a Sprint

I've traveled with rookies to Vegas before who drink on the plane.

By the time we get there they just want to go to the room and pass out.

in defense of drinking on the plane...

... I blame Southwest, for restoring expiration dates on their drink coupons.  I only fly like once or twice a year these days, so I have to get in those drinks when I can. (And it's slightly more socially acceptable to get one or two in on the 7am to Vegas than it is on say, the morning puddle jump between  Columbus and Chicago)... ;-)
