Like Palms? Score A Resort Credit With Jackpot Vodka

December 11, 2014 at 7:20 PM | by | Comment (1)

Red Bull doesn’t really give you wings, but a new vodka brand can actually give you real resort credits at Palms. Jackpot Spirits is launching a new product, Jackpot Vodka, in the Arizona and Nevada markets and has a pretty sweet deal for guests of the off-Strip resort.

The new vodka, available locally at Lee’s Discount Liquor locations, comes with a unique five-character code on the cap that can be redeemed for a $25 resort credit at Palms. If you’re wondering if it’s on the inside of the actual cap like those fun facts on Snapple lids, which would sort of force you to only use it after you finished the whole bottle, we were wondering, too. The answer is no. The code is attached to the capsule (the fancy word for the foil wrapper over the top of a liquor or wine bottle), so you can use it immediately and not sacrifice your bottle cap.

At Palms, A Burt Reynolds Auction, But A Free Viewing First

Where: 4321 Flamingo Road [map], 89103

Burt Reynolds says he's not broke, he just doesn't have "use nor room" for some 600 personal items set to go on auction at the Palms tomorrow and Friday, December 11-12.

This week's auction is already making headlines, but probably not in the way the actor would have wished. He's felt compelled to publicly deny being in serious final need while publications have not held back in their descriptions of the event, from Vocativ.com heralding it as Reynolds "personal garbage fire sale" to Gawker terming the items up for bid as "insane garbage." Starting to see a theme? If you're in need of a good laugh, you should click on both of those hyperlinks as I dare you not to LOL at some of the commentary.

Great Cash Back Promotion From CG Technology (Cantor) Sportsbooks

December 1, 2014 at 1:20 PM | by | Comments (2)

The sportsbook operator formerly known as Cantor Gaming and now known as CG Technology has a pretty great cash back promotion. They’ll refund 5% (up to $5,000) of net losses from wagers of $100 or more. The caveats are that bets must be placed through your CG Technology account (not in person) and that only sports wagers will qualify. And no, it's not limited to new members only.

Here are specifics on how the promotion works:

More Ways, Good And Bad, To Catch A Movie In Vegas

November 20, 2014 at 5:05 PM | by | Comments (5)

Over the summer, we brought you some great options for enjoying a movie in Vegas. Based on your comments, it seems we’re not alone in our love for a flick, even while on vacation. We’re back now with more possibilities, as well as details on how you can see the blockbuster film Interstellar the way it was meant to be seen.

If high-priced theater tickets aren’t your thing, then Regency Tropicana Cinemas is your best bet. All shows here are just two bucks. Better yet, swing by on a Tuesday and get in for half off. Trade-offs? There are plenty. The screens are smaller, the movies are older, they don’t have stadium seating, and it occasionally seems like parents use the place as a daycare. Concessions are just as expensive as at any other theater, but when you can get five tickets for the price of one, it’s OK to splurge a bit. The Regency is located about four miles east of The Strip on Tropicana. It’s way too far to walk, but not a bad drive if you’re at the southern end of The Strip.

At Ghostbar Dayclub, It Can Be Halloween Every Saturday

October 22, 2014 at 8:17 PM | by | Comments (3)

It goes without saying to put your hands up.

With the fall season upon us ushering in cooler weather, the party doesn’t wait until nighttime to get started. Ghostbar Dayclub at Palms throws open the doors to its patio each Saturday this fall and winter for the ultimate indoor-outdoor party atmosphere.

This isn’t the bandage dress and heels crowd you’d expect at a nightclub, but rather an anything goes dress code where crazy costumes are encouraged. Think lots of neon spandex, tutus and furry vests. When we dropped by recently, there was an entire crew in ‘80s workout wear and another dressed as the Power Rangers. In other words, jeans and t-shirts are allowed, but you might actually stand out if you don’t opt for something crazier.

Lao Sze Chuan Cranks Up The Heat At Palms

Where: 4321 W. Flamingo Rd. [map], 89103
September 25, 2014 at 7:42 PM | by | Comments (0)

The eagerly anticipated Chinese spot at Palms is now open. The trope is almost mandatory now: gambling establishments with over 100 slot machines must have bathrooms, emergency exits, and a Chinese restaurant. But, at least this new dining destination isn't like the dens of grease/MSG many claim and features a proper chef doing proper Chinese specialties.

Szechuan food is characterized by two ingredients: chili oil and Szechuan peppercorns. Both play a heavy part in the food at Lao Sze Chuan, especially in the Spicy Szechuan Rabbit appetizer ($7.95). This is a dish for those looking to satiate that peppercorn addiction, applying almost medical-grade numbing to every surface in your mouth. If you wanted to scare away a novice, this would be the dish to do it with. The dish, served cold, is quite tasty, just watch out for the many sharp bones and don't start popping it in your mouth like this writer did.

Chicago's Lao Sze Chuan Is Coming To Vegas

July 21, 2014 at 10:20 PM | by | Comments (0)

Lao Sze Chuan, a Chicago transplant from the famous "Mayor of Chinatown," Tony Hu, will officially debut at Palms this August (although, we hear a end-of-July soft opening may not be out of the question). The darling of critics and lauded by Michelin with their "Bib Gourmand" designation, Tony Hu is bringing Sze Chuan spice to Vegas.

Players Club Matching At The Palms, But Offer Expires Soon

June 23, 2014 at 4:11 PM | by | Comments (7)

Make no mistake about it, Palms is hustling for your business. It's opened a new poolside burger joint for everyone to enjoy and began offering a couple of interesting concepts for incoming and outgoing hotel guests (a sad trombone update on that tomorrow).

Now, execs are making a big offer to bring in new gamblers. Through June 30, Palms will offer players club status-matching between Club Palms and any other club in town. In addition, bonuses will be offered. All-Star signups will receive two buffet passes, MVPs will receive two buffet passes and $25 in free slot play, and Hall of Famers will receive two buffet passes and $50 in free slot play.

Another One Gone: Palms Closes Poker Room

June 12, 2014 at 2:55 PM | by | Comments (4)

The Las Vegas valley has lost another poker room. CardPlayer.com reports Palms has shut down its poker room "indefinitely."

Operated by Cantor since 2012 and offering just a handful of tables, CardPlayer says "the news probably isn't too surprising." It reports that the Palms would not comment on the shutter.

Ditching Work For Ditch Fridays

Where: 4321 West Flamingo Road [map], 89103

Triple-digit temperatures and throngs of thongs and hard-bodied coeds have returned to the Las Vegas landscape signaling both the commencement of the city’s world renowned pool season and the realization for this writer that five months have passed since making yet another New Year’s resolution that failed to ignite on the launch pad.

The resolution: To get in shape for pool season.

The result: Total failure, which comes as no surprise thanks to a, shall we say, “lax,” workout plan that consisted of a grueling 20 sit-ups every other Sunday.

At Palms, A Pool Party With A Side Of Burgers

Where: 4321 West Flamingo Road [map], 89103

The burger boom that has enraptured Sin City over the last few years took the next step in its evolution on March 14 by expanding past the traditional indoor brick and mortar locale to a poolside venue with an exquisite vista.

Overlooking the people-watching pleasure palace that is Ditch Fridays, Back Room Burger at Palms is the latest entrant into the Las Vegas burger scene with a menu featuring a robust craft beer selection (eight on tap, 35 bottles) as well as alcohol-infused custard shakes ($12) to complement the eatery’s ten signature burgers ($11-$14). Nine appetizers, four different styles of fries and desserts as well as three salads adorn a menu that plays second fiddle to the scantily clad hardbodies swimming and sunbathing just beyond the restaurant’s outdoor seating area.
