When Casino Drink Options Leave You Thirsting For More

We enjoy beer and cocktails as much as the next guy (or gal), but every now and again there's a desire to drink something different in the casino. The same handful of drink options become boring after a while, especially if you visit casinos often. When it's 100+ degrees outside, the body doesn't want hot beverages like coffee or tea and there's only so much soda we can drink before losing our teeth.

While playing video poker the other day, we wondered to ourselves when casinos will begin offering some new non-alchoholic drinks like iced tea or coffee. It would be nice not to have to stop playing and walk to the nearest Starbucks to drop $4 on a large venti iced coffee or to the gift shop for a Snapple. If the idea is to keep us stimulated, these drinks will certainly do the trick. Casinos can even add punch or an orange drink like McD's has to jack up our sugar level if that's easier to manage.

Our Dream Casino Bar

February 27, 2013 at 1:55 PM | by | Comments (3)

It's that time of the year in Vegas when the weather turns from the relatively cold winter and becomes perfect. This weekend the temps get deep into the 70s and pool season starts next week! Since a lot of this writer's life is spent inside casinos, dreams are constant on how to make that time better. When the weather reaches the 70s, this Chatter'er is ready to spend some quality time outside, but still at a casino. It's time to bring the casino, sportsbook and bar outside.

This writer's dream casino bar would be stocked with a wide variety of craft beer. Fancy cocktails will be available, but won't be the focus of this casino bar. This bar would be outside and have video poker so we can enjoy the awesome craft beer selection for free while we play and earn comps on our players club card. Chances are, we'll need those points to get a burger later.
