There’s always a bargain, good deal, cheap special or
freebie going on somewhere in Las Vegas, and this week will start our fruitful
For starters, how about a ridiculously low cost, (possibly
the cheapest in Las Vegas,) shrimp cocktail? For half a buck, pick one up at the
Deli Bar at downtown’s Plaza. Served in a plastic cocktail cup, they
look like the popcorn shrimp variety, but come complete with tangy cocktail
sauce. Some of the other ones to look for downtown include the famous 99-center
at the Golden Gate, (often touted as the “best in Vegas,”) and
another 99-er at the Fremont Deli. (The Gate also has a giant size
cocktail they sell for $2.99.)
For landlubbers in search of Prime Rib, go for the gold at
the Gold Coast. A nicely portioned 10-ounce Prime Rib special is served
nightly for $8.95 beginning at 5 p.m. in the Cortez Room. The complete dinner
includes a baked potato, hot vegetable, bread and butter and a relish tray.
Reservations are accepted by calling 367-7111 after 3 p.m. daily.
Another good, hearty, meat-eaters choice would be to try
the Café Sienna at the Suncoast. A whopping, 16-ounce Porterhouse steak
dinner special for $9.95 is available 24 hours a day. The giant steak deal also
comes complete with all the fixin’s, including a choice of soup or salad,
vegetable of the day, choice of potato and even a 15 ounce glass of beer to wash
it all down. No reservations are accepted here and guests must be 21 or older
for the special.
Silverton is gearing up for their annual
“World’s Greatest Yard Sale” to be held on Saturday, April 13. Las Vegas
“frugal-ites” will not only enjoy the free admission, but all the good
bargains to boot. Here’s your chance to dicker and barter with vendors for the
best prices on tons of new and used merchandise, before the unsold items left
behind are donated to a needy charity. Gates open to the general public at 7
a.m. on the day of the sale, but if you’d like to register as a seller, call
892-0727, ext. 306, beginning March 29th.
For current cheap show options, it doesn’t get any better
than the Fiesta Rancho this Friday, March 29.Â In their continuing series, comedian Carol Siskind will
perform two free shows at 7 and 9 p.m. with tickets available for the asking at
the Amigo slot club booth.Â
The Tropicana also offers a good deal for Las Vegas
locals to see the “funny stuff,” too. Every Thursday is two-for-one night at
The Comedy Stop, ÂÃ‚Âlocated inside the hotel. You must show a local ID to receive
the “twofers.” Call 739-2714 for more information or show reservations.
Newsflash! Here’s a last minute, honest-to-goodness,
too-cheap-to-miss special! Show your Player’s Club card at Silverton on
Monday, April 1st, and get a “No Foolin’” Champagne Brunch for a measly
buck!Â Hours are 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
