It can be very exciting when you stumble upon something so great that you wonder “How did I not know about this before?” Lately this writer has been happening upon several of those minor miracles. Like a weekly series of “Boozy Movies” where you can enjoy cult hits for the price of a cocktail. A $20 massage spa that shall remain my secret. And Alexis Park All-Suite Resort...a true, genuine, absolute wonder. The fact that we haven't mentioned it at length since 2010 should give you an idea of just how hidden this gem is.
A reader asked for a reasonably priced dinner spot to celebrate her husband’s 40th birthday. Here are a few of our suggestions. Sound off in the comments with your own ideas for a nice meal that won’t hurt their wallets too much.
If you’re ok with making appetizers into dinner rather than have a full meal, happy hour at Level 107 at Stratosphere offers delicious food and half off prices. Daily from 4-7, you can enjoy buy-one-get-one martinis and half off food. The roasted tomato fondue ($8 at HH pricing) is the dip you’ll want to put on everything you ever eat going forward. Black angus sliders ($8 at HH pricing) have a nice flavor burst from horseradish butter. The lollipop chicken wings ($7.50 at HH pricing) are also a must.
There are also apps like shrimp and lobster cocktail, lamb lettuce cups and banh mi sandwiches. As you can see, this is far from your average happy hour fare. The drinks are solid too with the lemon drop being my favorite (two for $15 at HH pricing). The real bonus here is the view. Enjoy a 360-degree view of Vegas from the 107th floor of the hotel’s tower.

The off-Strip beer hall and restaurant is offering new promotions to get you to stop by for a mug or two (or more). A new "Power Hour" lunch guarantee will comp your food if you don't get it within 13 minutes. The pledge is good for meals between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.

VegasChatter Twitter follower @wclsc59 recently asked us about the best Vegas venues for open bar options. If you’re aiming to drink for an extended period of time, the standard $12-$14 cocktails at many bars will add up quick. Many open bar options will be more budget friendly, but remember, just because your wallet can handle it, doesn’t mean your liver can!
If you’re in the ‘burbs out at Red Rock's Mercadito (or can get there), brunch comes with a two-hour open bar featuring cocktails, wine or beer plus three brunch items to share. It’s $38.50 per guest and includes standard brunch drinks like margaritas, mimosas, Bloody Marys and a variety of fruity concoctions.

There's a new way to save a few bucks on keeping yourself entertained in Vegas. Today, a press release touted the launch of the Vegas Attraction Passport.
The new offering bundles admission to five attractions that may or may not be on your Vegas list -- Madame Tussauds, Mob Museum, CSI: The Experience, Venetian's outdoor gondola ride, and a one-day, unlimited bus ticket for Big Bus Tours -- at a discount of "over 40 percent." The cost? $79.99. We wondered if we could do better with a few clicks around the Internet or if the passport really does provide some value so we gave it the ol' college try.

A new billboard campaign in Vegas asks passersby what happened to this town, without stating anything more. With nary a logo, brand or web address in sight, it perplexed enough folks that it made the local TV news.
It's now been revealed that Stratosphere is behind the signage which is in promotion of its self-proclaimed "Take Vegas Back" movement. What does that mean, exactly? A YouTube video rants all about it:

As a food writer, I get many many questions regarding where people should eat while they are in Vegas... but with a caveat. "Mitchell, you handsome devil," they'll ask me, "where should I dine next Saturday night?" I'll answer something like Sage or Twist or Carnevino, but am quickly shot down with something like "ehhhhh, I mean eat ON A BUDGET."
Oh? A budget? You want a terrific dining experience for pennies on the dollar? Oh, well, why didn't I think of that? But, sarcasm aside, it can be done. It can! So, I have collected here the five best places to get a fine meal for a small amount of money.
It wasn't long ago we wondered how low rates would go at SLS Las Vegas, newly opened and still trying to find its footing on a (for now, at least) desolate north Strip. We thought a 50 percent discount for Black Friday had to be pretty close to the bottom, but apparently, not quite.

Going back a year and half ago before SLS Las Vegas opened, we knew that Umami Burger Beer Garden and Sportsbook would be one of our favorite parts of the property. It wouldn’t be the traditional version of a burger joint, beer garden or sportsbook. The hybrid would, if nothing else, offer something different from other casinos in Vegas.
Since then, Umami seems as though it’s doing relatively well. Despite major cutbacks at other SLS restaurants, Umami Burger only snipped a few hours per night. If there’s been one major complaint about Umami, it’s been the beer prices which begin at $8. Well, they’ve taken some steps to fix that.

This VegasChatter writer spent way too much of her life not liking asparagus. I’ve been making up for lost time and finding interesting preparations in local restaurants. One of my current faves is the Filet Mignon-Wrapped Asparagus with soy mirin sauce ($18, above) at Sushi Roku in the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace. The perfectly cooked asparagus is wrapped in insanely tender, thinly-sliced filet and served on a hot stone to keep it nice and toasty. The server pours the thick and savory soy mirin sauce when it is delivered to create a fragrant sizzle. Sushi Roku definitely won extra points for presentation!
The restaurant is celebrating its 10th anniversary with an “Ultimate Top 10” menu for a limited time. Select menu items like the asparagus appetizer and other top sellers like Yellowtail Diced Chilies with olive oil and garlic ponzu, the Katana Roll with spicy tuna and shrimp tempura topped with tuna and yellowtail and Chilean Sea Bass with Truffle Miso Glaze are only $10.

The patio at Monte Carlo has gotten a lot of attention in the past few months for some new dining options, but one of the property’s more long-running standbys shouldn’t be overlooked. Nestled in the culinary corner between d.vino and Yusho is Dragon Noodle. With its quirky décor featuring floating baby heads, dancing bok choy (why not?) and more traditional Asian touches, it can almost make you feel like you’re not in a Vegas sushi spot.
Now, Dragon Noodle is offering a Sushipalooza special so there’s even more reason to check it out. On Saturdays and Sundays from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., guests can enjoy 50% off sushi in all parts of the dining room. The special also can be redeemed from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the tiki bar and sushi counter areas only Sunday evenings.
