Buy a chunk of Vegas memorabilia

Jul 9, 2007 4:26 AM

This is your last chance to swing by the New Frontier for a final glimpse of the old casino hotel. You may be lucky enough to find a few logo souvenirs or pick up a few chips and coins as collectables from the cage. A public auction at the hotel has been set for July 31. Great American Group, the same firm that held the auction at the Stardust last November, will conduct the auction.

On July 17, another auction of casino memorabilia and hotel goods will be held at the Nevada Landing hotel casino in Jean. The sale is also being held by the Great American Group. For more information on this sale, you can visit the same website.

Arizona Charlie’s Decatur and Arizona Charlie’s Boulder are both running summer food specials in the Sourdough Café’s. Go for the Prime Rib and Shrimp dinner or St. Louis BBQ Ribs. Both are just $7.77 this month. For dessert, a huge strawberry shortcake is only $1.77.

In honor of 7/7/07, Z’Tejas, a popular southwestern themed restaurant in Summerlin, (9550 W. Sahara Ave.) is featuring seven lunch entrées for $7.77 all month. Choose from a chicken quesadilla, a pepper turkey sandwich, Hickory burger, Santa Fe enchiladas, Diablo pasta, smoked chicken relleno, or a black bean and chicken salad. The restaurant’s 7-7-7 dinner special is seven ounces of NY Strip (Gorgonzola recipe), seven ounces of grilled fish, and seven ounces of wine all for $20.99, and you could even get it for free! Every table will receive a scratch-off card for a coupon good for either a free appetizer on your next visit, or $7 off, $14 off, or $21 off your bill.

Downtown, the Plaza’s Lucky 7’s Buffet is bargain-priced at just $7.77 all day, everyday. Sister casino, the Vegas Club has converted its Great Moments upscale dining room to more casual dining at café prices and now serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. And the Original Coffee Shop at Binion’s Gambling Hall downtown has a Prime Rib dinner special served 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for $8.95. Also available is a steak and lobster special for $11.95 served daily from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Across the street at the Four Queens, if it’s your birthday, ask for a free meal coupon at the promotions booth (when a second meal is purchased.)

And, of course, a stop at the Golden Gate for a tasty 99-cent shrimp cocktail is always in order when visiting downtown! Enjoy!
