A couple years ago, this writer was staying at the Palazzo and noticed a sign for a special at Morels French Steakhouse on the elevator TV screen. Later, I found out that it was $40 for a full dinner, which included salad, NY Strip, mashed potatoes and creme brulee. I added some wine and charcuterie to the meal and it was delicious.
Even though the steak was a smaller cut than what was offered on the menu (12 ounce vs. 16 ounce), this was still a bargain as a full-sized NY Strip was $50 on the menu. When adding the salad and dessert this was a small savings and a great excuse to try an often overlooked steakhouse near the entrance of Palazzo.

When visiting El Cortez, it’s important to remember where you are and manage your expectations. El Cortez is one of the most historic casinos in Vegas and may have been the casino that truly started the Downtown Vegas revival when it was renovated seven years ago. With all of the more recent renovations, though, the ones at El Cortez feel more vintage than they were intended. Aesthetically, El Cortez is a mid-level Downtown Vegas casino. Still, we love El Cortez.
Besides some of the best gaming odds in any Las Vegas casino, El Cortez also has some of the most random and cool casino promotions. Personally, this writer learned how to gamble at El Cortez and it holds a special place in my heart. For months, I’ve noticed that El Cortez had a $5 beer and burger special available at Cafe Cortez. With all of the new restaurants coming on board in Downtown Vegas, I've been a little too distracted to try it, but finally had the opportunity to dive in recently.

Ah, Black Friday. It's the ultimate display of consumerism in America. You know, the time of year when people trample each other to save a few bucks. But, we sure do love a deal, especially in a town like Vegas where they are so few and far between (unless you consider $8 beers a bargain, of course).
For all you savvy shoppers out there, here's what Sin City has in store for you as you digest your Thanksgiving turkey:
Las Vegas Premium Outlets (North or South): Oh wait... did we say the day after Thanksgiving? We meant on Thanksgiving. Those looking for a good excuse to get out of dish duty can hit the outlets and take advantage of the fact that stores will be open not only on Thanksgiving Day, but straight through to Friday (and, if they close at all Thursday night, they will reopen at midnight and stay open until 10 p.m. Friday night).
Shoppers can sign up for the Free VIP Shopper Club to get access to online coupons and a VIP coupon book. A Gift With MasterCard Purchase After-Thanksgiving Promotion will also give shoppers who make a single-day purchase of $500 or more with their MasterCard credit or debit card on Saturday (Nov 30th) or Sunday (Dec 1st) a $50 MasterCard Gift Card. (ps, this will not be us.)
Deals / Free Vegas / Veterans Day / Holidays / → All Tags
While the country certainly needs no excuse or special occasion to honor our veterans and active military personnel, Vegas is using Veterans Day to say thanks in a big way. Many of its resorts are offering specials and discounts as well as complimentary food and entertainment to our service men and women not only on November 11, but for some venues, throughout the entire month.
Below, we've compiled a list of the current deals. (Be sure to check back as we will keep updating it.) Remember to have your military IDs on hand when redeeming the offers, however, as all require proof of current or former service.
Downtown / Downtown Vegas / Downtown Grand / Resort Fees / Openings / Grand Experience Fee / Deals / → All Tags
The biggest complaint most have about resort fees is that you really don't get anything out of it. Who cares about local calls when you have a cell phone, or gym access if you were planning to divide your time between the casino, the bar and the closest restaurant, right?
But, when Downtown Grand told us they would, indeed, have a resort fee -- or, as they phrase it a Grand Experience Fee ($11) -- they said an accompanying coupon book would hold real value to guests. And, it's true. For the most part.
A friendly front desk agent let us peek inside the Grand Experience Pass that's, umm, passed out upon check-in. And, if you only end up redeeming just two of the coupons inside, you'll likely still make your money back, so to speak. Here's a complete list of the offers:

It's not often we get emails (read: never) disparaging our contributors, criticizing our usefulness and humor, and boasting of how the writer can do better before delivering the equivalent of SNL's 1980 season. But, VegasChatter
lambaster reader Chris S. does have a point in that we've not touted Bally's not very widely known cheap booze and tacos deal for good reason.
Here's Chris' love letter to Tacos and Tequila (he means Tequila Bar & Grill and the tacos and booze are actually $2-$3 now, but we're big enough not to let a small thing like facts get in the way), in his own words:
Events / Fabulous / Gay Vegas / PRIDE / MGM Resorts / Entertainment / Bingo / Circus Circus / Temptation Sundays / Luxor / The Mirage / Dining / Deals / → All Tags
The resorts of MGM, erm, Resorts will make Las Vegas twice as fabulous again this year with the return of Fabulous Las Vegas. The now annual LGBT celebration has been moved back a few months, though, to run concurrent with Las Vegas' also annual PRIDE parade and festival. Fabulous was held in July last year (and August before that), but will run September 3-8 this time around. PRIDE's festivities typically occur in September and are set for September 6-7 this year.
Fabulous Las Vegas -- which attracts hundreds of participants -- will see events up and down The Strip, from PRIDE Family Bingo at Circus Circus to Temptation Sundays at Luxor. (Psst, you can experience both outside of this week, too, if you can't make it but still want to be, you know, fabulous.) Deals will also be offered for Zarkana at Aria, Zumanity at New York-New York and stand-up comedy shows by Margaret Cho and Kathy Griffin at The Mirage. At least a half dozen restaurants will discount dining as well.
With daily 100+ degree temps, it's something we're all likely doing, anyway. So, why not score a freebie out of it?
Tropical Smoothie Cafe will offer complimentary 24 oz. Jetty Punch smoothies next Friday, June 21. And, all you have to do to nab yours is to wear flip flops. Already got yours on, right? The deal will be available from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. just when
we're the sweatiest it's the hottest and relief couldn't be more needed. TSC operates three locales on the Strip, one at Excalibur, one at Harmon Corner and one that just opened a few days ago at Stratosphere. Off Strip, there are almost 20 additional locations. All will take part.

When it comes to dining on the Strip with kids, it's probably not the first place to come to mind. But, this summertime deal may change that for those with tykes in tow.
The Hard Rock Cafe on The Strip is offering complimentary meals for kiddos now through August 31. Menu options range from cheeseburgers and fries to BBQ drumsticks, and more.
Deals / Charlie Palmer / Charlie Palmer Steak / Four Seasons / Steakhouses / Fine Dining / → All Tags
In case you missed it, VegasChatter has been over-the-top impressed with PRESS, the new lounge/lobby bar/small bites restaurant/breakfast spot/early morning coffee bar/late night coffee cocktail bar/poolside retreat at the Four Seasons. It's universally a multi-purpose success. Seriously, we'd be willing to pay rent if they'd let us sleep on one of the comfy banquettes.
If coffee, hand-crafted cocktails and Baked Alaska doesn't have you convinced, there's another compelling reason to visit the Four Seasons. One that's been a staple of the resort for years, but somehow remains a lower profile restaurant in the Strip dining scene.

Three ways to celebrate your 21st in Vegas? Make that four.
Off Strip Hofbräuhaus wants to toast patrons
trading fake IDs for legit ones celebrating their right to drink with a free liter of Hofbräu beer on their 21st birthday. We're sure quite a few will drink to that. But, if that ship has already sailed for you, here are some other Vegas deals you might want to redeem:
Pools / Pool Scenes / Happy Hours / Drinking / Deals / LVH / Off Strip / Free Vegas / → All Tags
It may not be summer officially, but the temps in Vegas have called for poolside relaxation for weeks now. And, while the LVH pool may not be at the top of your list (or, let's keep it real, on your list at all), this just might get you to reconsider.
LVH has launched a daily "Cool by the Pool" happy hour that's open to not just guests, but to all who want to pop by. Set for 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., the best draw may be the chance to work on your tan for free while pregaming with 2-for-1 drink specials. Two dollar shrimp cocktails will also be offered. If that's not enough, LVH promises daily drawings with "fabulous prizes," too. If you win one, let us know how fabulous fabulous is.
LVH's pool deck can be found on the third floor.
