Tag: Harrah's CasinoView All Tags
We don’t normally like to go into Harrah’s, what with it being populated semi-exclusively by old people, a place where even the Von Dutch t-shirts are fake, and, in our humble opinion, one of the saddest places on the Strip. But we were obligated to pay a visit on Monday night to tick off the Flavors buffet for our Buffet of Buffets challenge.
The buffet was grotty enough (more on that later) but it was what we saw on the way out that really turned our stomach. What’s that in the window of the souvenir shop next to the tacky Vegas keyrings? Why, it’s, a rack (hoho) of gentlemen’s magazines. Hustler, Playboy, and Score magazine, which we didn’t know of personally, but we looked up on the internet to find it is a “men’s pornographic magazine focusing on women with extremely large breasts”. How lovely to have that right in the window for all the families walking by.
What you have to do is log onto their site, click on the “Hot Deals” link and enter your email address (they promise not to spam your inbox with a whole lotta crap). Click through to the Las Vegas link and have your pick of the seven properties – Caesars Palace, Bally’s, Rio, Flamingo, Harrah’s, Imperial Palace, or Paris.
For sh*ts and giggles (and since our budget is stretched to the max), we wanted to see where our almighty dollar would get us and how low we could go within the Harrah’s family of hotels, so we clicked on Imperial Palace. Rates ranged from $20-249 a night, with Sunday to Wednesday night stays yielding the lowest rates. We did find super cheap rates for the weekend of December 18th, with rates coming in at $29 for Friday, $35 for Saturday and $20 for Sunday (if you want to milk another day out of reasonable weekend rates).
