The Nightly Happy Hour At Umami Burger Looks Like A Sweet Deal

Where: 89109
November 13, 2014 at 4:45 PM | by | Comments (4)

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.

How Sushi Roku Could Rock Your Next Meal

Where: 3500 Las Vegas Blvd. South [map], 89109

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.

Sushipalooza At Dragon Noodle Is Worth Your Time

November 8, 2014 at 5:40 PM | by | Comment (1)

The California Volcano roll is an explosion of tasty tuna.

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.

If great live music, finger-lickin' fried chicken or bowling isn't enough to get you to venture inside Brooklyn Bowl at The LINQ (the mall, not the hotel), this may be the game-changer.

There's A Happy Hour For Locals At SLS Las Vegas, If You Can Sort It Out

Where: 2535 Las Vegas Blvd. S. [map], 89109
October 7, 2014 at 4:10 PM | by | Comments (9)

Somewhere along the line SLS Las Vegas decided they loved locals, theoretically putting them in competition for the attention of locals' love meter against another Vegas gambling conglomerate. More love being shot our way is fine by us. The first question this Vegas resident wondered was what benefits would be received by accepting SLS' advances? THE CODE, the resort's players club, lists them as:


· Preferred seating and restaurant reservations
· Preferred room rates and availability
· $5 happy hour drink specials Sunday-Thursday 5pm-8pm
· 2-for-1 admission to The SLS Buffet for breakfast, lunch or dinner Friday-Sunday 8am-9pm
· 25% off treatments in Ciel Spa Sunday-Thursday
· Skip the line on Industry Nights at LiFE & The Sayers Club on Sundays & Foxtail on Mondays

A Trio Of Airlines To Offer More Ways To Get Here

October 2, 2014 at 5:19 PM | by | Comments (5)

JetBlue, Virgin America and Edelweiss Air are making it easier to get to Las Vegas.

JetBlue is adding a daily round-trip flight from San Francisco to Las Vegas starting January 5, just in time for CES 2015. To introduce the route, guests can enjoy a restricted number of $38 one-way fares for Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday flights between January 10 and April 1, but those will likely sell out quickly as they're only offered through Friday. Ahead of this, on October 28, another Vegas route will be added featuring a non-stop flight to Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Starbucks At The Linq Offers Late-Night Happy Hour

Where: 89109
September 29, 2014 at 4:00 PM | by | Comments (7)

If you think Starbucks is a whole latte lotta money, the location at The Linq has just the offer for you... if you're up for it. Literally.

Located near The Linq's Strip entrance, the now 24-hour Starbucks offers a late-night happy hour. Drop in between 11 p.m. and 2 a.m., buy two drinks, and receive 50 percent off the cheaper of the two. (If they're both the same price, you'll still get the discount.) And, yes, with markup, you're probably still paying for two drinks, but if you were Jonesing for a late-night caffeine fix and would have picked up some, anyway, why not save a few bucks?

Westgate's SuperBook Offering Reduced Juice On Thursdays

September 23, 2014 at 9:16 PM | by | Comment (1)

Most of the time we see a "deal" by a casino for gamblers, it's usually a bad bet. New bonus bets are often employed by casinos to take our money. They're a business and that's their prerogative. That's not the case with a deal we discovered by Westgate. Right now, sports bettors will get reduced juice when placing bets at the Westgate sportsbook Thursday afternoons.

Juice is sometimes called commission or, more commonly, vig, which is short for vigorish. When placing most football bets, the juice is usually -110 on a point spread. This means you’ll have to bet $110 on a game to win $100. The juice here is 10% for the casino. Reduced juice means that the sportsbook is lowering that juice/commission/vig. This is a legit discount.

Bottomless Bubbles At Fizz Offers Two Hours of Champagne

Where: 3570 Las Vegas Blvd. S. [map], 89109
September 19, 2014 at 7:03 PM | by | Comments (2)

Bottoms up!

VegasChatter reader Bill G. posed some good questions about the new Bottomless Bubbles promotion at FIZZ. If you haven’t checked out the snazzy Caesars Palace champagne bar yet by Elton John's partner, David Furnish, this promotion may be a good way to test the waters bubbles.

For $36 inclusive of tax and gratuity/service charge, guests can enjoy two hours of bottomless house champagne. The particular brand evidently varies from time to time, but if you’re not picky, you’re guaranteed all the champagne you can drink in one of two time slots: 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. or 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. nightly.

Now that there's a flashy new resort just a little north of the Wynn Las Vegas, Steve Wynn's luxury towers are getting a little looser with their resort offerings.

July 17, 2014 at 2:24 PM | by | Comments (3)

Hecho en Vegas at MGM Grand should be on your happy hour radar, if it isn’t already. It used to have a more straightforward weekday special but even if it’s gotten more complicated lately, it’s worth your consideration.

On Sundays and Wednesdays, the Mexican restaurant offers half-off appetizers from 5:30 to 7 p.m. The “primeros” menu includes tres quesos fundido, short rib taquitos, mesquite-grilled chicken quesadillas, Hecho wings, shrimp chicharron, a variety of street tacos and “the chimichanga experience.”

Only In Vegas Will A $10 Drink Special Catch Our Eye

Where: 3799 Las Vegas Blvd. S. [map], 89109
July 17, 2014 at 1:10 PM | by | Comment (1)

The land of the 99 cent shrimp cocktail transformed into the land of the $20 cocktail in just a few decades. While killer deals can still be found in a a handful of choice locations on the Strip and downtown, they are few and far between. That’s why when this sign caught our eye, we rejoiced on behalf of price-gouged tourists everywhere. Don’t get us wrong, if enough people are willing to pay the price, it’s hard for us to judge venues for fleecing guests with giant markups on bottle and drink prices. Business is business. It does make it rough to find an affordable drink on the Las Vegas Strip, though.
