Riv offers 50th anniversary specials

Apr 5, 2005 7:37 AM

In honor of the Riviera’s 50th anniversary, all of its restaurants are currently featuring special anniversary meals and prices. Kady’s coffee shop, for instance, has old-fashioned blue plate specials starting at $4.95, and the snack bar, Hound Doggies, located in the new Penny Town casino area, has reduced every item to just 99 cents. In the race and sports books, complimentary cake and champagne will be served everyday during April from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. The Riv’s Ristorante Italiano is featuring complete dinner re-creations from the year 1955 for $19.55.

Several weeks ago we reported a price increase on the popular prime rib dinner (and prime rib and eggs) specials at the San Remo. We are now pleased to report that those specials have returned to their former price of just $5.95, available 24 hours.

Nextdoor at the Tropicana, the Calypsos coffee shop is serving a steak and crab legs dinner nightly for $18.95, from 5 p.m. to midnight. Save an additional $4 off the price by picking up a coupon with a free pull on the promotional slot machine located outside the front entrance, or try asking for the coupon at the Winner’s Club booth. If you play the free pull machine and get lucky, you could also win free merchandise, meals, show tickets, cash or even a car. At the very minimum, everyone gets a set of coupons and a free deck of playing cards.

The Magic of Rick Thomas, formerly the long running afternoon show at the Tropicana, has moved to afternoons at the Stardust. Regular tickets prices start at $19.95, but as a special introductory offer, Las Vegas locals get a $2 off coupon at the box office with a valid Nevada ID. The discount is good for up to four people. Performances are at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m., daily (dark on Wednesdays).

Dine downtown at Roberta’s steakhouse in the El Cortez and, if your check tops $50, you’ll receive $10 in free slot play.

The Sirens of TI pirate show at Treasure Island has begun its summer schedule: Free shows take place at 7 p.m., 8:30 p.m., 10 p.m. and 11:30 p.m., nightly, in Sirens’ Cove at the front of the hotel.
