Night crawlers feast on Fiesta’s late-night specials

Feb 5, 2002 6:31 AM

We have a potpourri of interesting tidbits and news to share this week. Starting with the demise of the late night breakfast specials at Arizona Charlie’s. The ninety seven-cent breakfasts are over, gone, kaput. The new, reigning, late night ruling king of “cheap” remains the Fiesta’s, (either location, on Rancho or in Henderson,) with breakfast for seventy-seven cents available nightly from 12 midnight to 6 a.m. In case you’ve missed it previously, it’s two eggs, two bacon strips, hash browns and toast. What a deal! But, Charlie’s does come through this month with a special on beer. Foster’s is just 75 cents all month! (Either location on that one too.) And the ever-popular, long running, $2.49 steak and eggs at Charlie’s is still in tact. Try it anytime, again at either location. It’s available 24/7. If you prefer ham instead of steak, no problem. Same price.

Over at the Orleans, La Louisiane, the former Cajun style restaurant has closed, but according to recent literature, the Prime Rib Loft has opened. Haven’t tried it yet, but they list entrees starting from $7.95 and are open from 5 to 11 p.m. every evening.

The Flamingo on the Strip has a new nightly dinner buffet featuring Prime Rib, steak, crab and shrimp. Price is $14.95 plus tax and you can add a one pound lobster for $6 more. The Paradise Garden Dinner Buffet is open from 4:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. All their other restaurants are also offering lobster specials during the month of February as well.

Heading downtown, check out the Lanai Express Deli Bar at the Fremont for a ninety nine-cent shrimp cocktail. The deli is open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily. For dinner, The Market Street Café at the California serves a complete Prime Rib dinner special for $5.99. Dinner includes Prime Rib cooked to your liking, unlimited salad bar, potato and hot vegetable. Even the Cherries Jubilee served over vanilla ice cream for dessert is included in the price. Actually you can get this one 24 hours a day. Such a deal! What a town!

Last but certainly not least, if you’re a player and have points accumulated in your Station Casino’s Boarding Pass account, February would be a good month to use some points for some great savings. Boulder Station has half point redemption’s at five of their top restaurants through February 28. Use just half the regular points needed when you dine at the Feast Buffet, Boulder Café, The Broiler, Guadalajara Bar & Grille or the Pasta Palace. Don’t forget, if you’ve accumulated your points at any other Station Casino, you can still redeem them at Boulder (or vice versa in the case of different promotional offers.) Stop by the Rewards Center promotional booth for complete details. The half point special deal is NOT valid on Valentine’s Day, (February14.) (You may actually need to shell out some real cash that day! Be still my heart!)

Next week, we’ll bring you a few new free show ideas and some free trips to enjoy as well. Until then”¦Eat well, play well, stay well.
