The bargains remain bountiful. The specials are spectacular. We always have a never-ending flow of terrific deals and this week is no different, although we do have a few new names we don’t usually find in the "cheap" column too often!

There are two days left to get in on the excellent Steak and Shrimp special at Jerry’s Nugget which comes to an end as of July 31. If you miss it, don’t worry too much. The Canal Street Café will offer a Prime Rib dinner special for only $5.49 through the month of August instead. The special includes a choice of soup or salad, choices of whipped or baked potato, French fries or rice, along with either garlic or French bread. The Prime Rib special is available Sunday through Thursday, from 4 p.m. to midnight.

Silverton continues to offer their outstanding $1.99 Spaghetti and Meatballs special in the Fireside Café. This one started out as a one month special back in May and has been held over by popular demand every month since. Get it for at least another month, now through August 30. You must show your Player’s Card, but that of course, is always free to join. The special is available any time the Italian mood strikes your fancy, 24/7.

On the Strip the Westward Ho is always whipping up something special. They may now possibly have the cheapest alcoholic beverage in town with a new bar special for 49 cents. The deal is a shot of rum with lemonade or iced tea.

Harrah’s is now promoting three specials in the Garden Café. Take your choice of all-you-can-eat Prime Rib, Fried Chicken or spaghetti and meatballs for $9.99. All three specials are served as a complete meal, offering you as much as you can handle. Serving times are from 5 p.m. to midnight daily.

The Lady Luck is giving new members who sign up for their Mad Money slot club a coupon voucher good for a hot dog and draft beer for 99 cents.

At least two Station Casinos (Boulder and Texas), will be offering 100-point buffets during August for Boarding Pass members. Every Sunday through Thursday in August, players who earn a minimum of 100 Boarding Pass points may redeem them for one breakfast, lunch, dinner or Sunday brunch Feast Buffet. Points must be earned and redeemed on the same day. Once you earn your points, visit the Rewards Center to receive a voucher. The voucher is only valid on the date that it is issued and is limited to one redemption per person per day.

Finally, please forgive our strawberry shortcake shortcomings. A couple weeks back we informed readers about Fiesta’s good 99 cent strawberry shortcake deal. But we misinformed you that it is available 24 hours. It’s not! Still 99 cents at either location in the Baja Beach Café, but go between 11 a.m. and 11 p.m. only, for that one!

Until next week”¦ "Eat well, play well, stay well!"
