excellent new meal deals and specials this week. We’ll toss in some nice Labor Day weekend specials too! Enjoy!

Here’s something new at Green Valley Ranch Station. For late night snacks the Feast Café inside the Around the World buffet is the place to be. Guests can choose from a variety of menu items that include breakfast selections, soups, salads, sandwiches and desserts between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. The buffet becomes a traditional full service restaurant each night 10 p.m.

Late-night selections include a New York steak and French fries plate for $5.99, baked mastaccioli for $4.95, Philly cheese steak sandwiches for $6.95 or a chicken Caesar salad for $7.95. The menu includes plenty of side orders and desserts too.

In other casinos specials the Las Vegas Hilton is serving draft beers including Tecate, MGD and Miller Lite at all their bars for a buck a pop.

And the Las Vegas Club downtown has a 75-cent shrimp cocktail and $2 Chef or Caesar salads served at the 7th Inning Scoop snack bar.

The El Cortez will be serving up one of their holiday buffets on Monday, September 2, in Careful Kitty’s Coffee shop. The barbecue style buffet will be offered from noon to 9 p.m. Cost is $8.95 per person.

For something a little different, take an hour’s drive north up I-15 to Mesquite and check out the Labor Day Champagne Brunch at Casablanca. The brunch buffet will be served from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. on both Sunday and Monday, September 1-2. They offer action cooking stations with omelets cooked to order, all your favorite breakfast items, and carving stations for ham, turkey and beef brisket. Even Bananas Foster for dessert! Brunch will run you $8.99, and $5.95 for kids 12 and under. The champagne dinner buffet will also be served both days from 3 to 9 p.m. for $11.99 per person. Plenty of barbecue style foods will be available including ribs, chicken, baked beans and corn on the cob. The evening carving station includes prime rib and roasted turkey. Kiddies still get dinner for the same $5.95 price.

Finally, we have an announcement from Ellis Island that they will be continuing their popular "Casino Workers Drink for Free" campaign that began in August, continuing through the month of September as well. Anyone employed in the casino industry can drink for free 24/7, at the casino bars by showing their employee identification. Appetizers for casino employees are half price, too.

Until next week, "Eat well, play well, stay well.
