VegasChatter reader Sully appreciated our coverage of the new High Roller observation wheel at The Linq and shared a video to add to our ongoing reports. If youíre wondering just how slowly this wheel goes around, check out his time-lapse video above.
Remember, this isnít an amusement park ride; it is an observation wheel. A quickie trip around wouldnít allow riders a very good chance to take in the sights of the Las Vegas Strip. Each of the 28 cabins holds up to 40 people and the trip around takes about a half an hour, allowing for plenty of observation time and photo ops.

The suits in the executive offices of the Riviera have seemingly been working on more than tying that perfect windsor knot in under four minutes. Some old spaces have been shuttered, one more than once. But, in other areas of the casino, everything old is new again.
After giving the theater a refresh, they've doo-wopped the entertainment lineup, adding Motown acts and mo'. The ol' casino lounge, Le Bistro? New again. And, the Riviera will be buddying up with the spawn of those Pawn Stars come April. Of course, Girls still be Crazy at the Riv and Men are getting into the
act Experience now, too.
The best recent news to come out of the Riviera PR machine for us? An announcement of the Riviera's 3-2-1 drink special which may just be the best on the Strip, happy hour be damned.
Deals / Dining / Drinking / The Mirage / Cravings / Buffets / → All Tags
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.

The airline recently announced a partnership with MGM Resorts to create a new ticket package for passengers traveling to Las Vegas. Patrons who book a fly-and-stay package of three or more nights will receive two complimentary tickets to a selection of MGM Resort shows.

The V Theater musical, which has been killing it (hee) on The Strip since July 2012, will offer a special, see-what-we-did-there $13 ticket price this Friday (and Saturday, too). General admission is normally $49.99.

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, itís 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, Iíve 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.)

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:

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.
