Make it a New Year’s resolution to laugh a little more. The laughs are free at The Rampart Casino as it presents the live comedy game show, BONK in Addison’s Lounge at 8 p.m. from Jan. 7-11. Admission is free.
The show combines an innovative mix of stand up comedy delivered in a game show format, complete with hilarious prizes, props and a professional comedy host. Contestants are challenged to answer trivia questions, unscramble puzzles and perform funny dances. Using a large soft mallet, contestants "BONK" themselves in the head to qualify to answer humorous questions, ranging from simple to challenging.
The New Year is also a good time to stock up and look for new casino coupons. A great source for casino coupons is the all-new 2007 American Casino Guide books. They are loaded with valuable coupons for Las Vegas (as well as many other gambling destinations) and are now available in the following casino gift shops in Las Vegas: all Station Casinos, both Fiesta Casinos, Wild, Wild West, Terrible’s Casino and the Cannery Casino. The price is $16.95. Tourists and locals will all find good deals and values in the books as well as gambling advice and game strategies. Players may use their points to purchase books.
The famous hot dog carts located near the race and sports books at the Gold Coast, Suncoast and Orleans have increased the price of the dogs from 75-cents to a buck. That’s the first increase in many years. Still well worth a buck for the tasty all-beef dogs that include your choice of fixin’s. The Barbary Coast is up to $1.50.
Sign up for a player’s card (free to join) at the Plaza downtown and get 2-for-1 tickets to the "Shag with a Twist" show.
Until next time, Happy New Year!
