New deals add spice to bargain food specials

Oct 1, 2002 5:59 AM

   Hardly ever does a week go by that we don’t find new specials, and good deals on meals, drinks and more throughout the Las Vegas valley. This week is no exception.

   For the third consecutive month, Ellis Island (corner of Koval at Flamingo,) continues offering casino workers free cocktails 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Just show proper identification at the bars and your drinks are on the house through the month of October! Appetizers are always half price for casino employees too. Even if you’re not a casino employee, you can still find great meal deals at Ellis Island, including a complete Filet Cut Top Sirloin Dinner, available 24/7 to anyone for $4.95. Or try the new Wednesday Night Special of any regular menu item for just $3.95! There’s also a 16 oz. Porterhouse Steak Dinner available on Thursdays from 4-10 p.m. for a mere $3.95 or another new “All-You-Can-Eat-Spaghetti & Meatballs Dinner” available on Sundays for only $3.95! Got to be some of the best current overall bargains in town!

   At Wild, Wild West, (on Tropicana at I-15), guests can grab a super 8 oz. burger served with a mess o’ fries and all the accouterments, for $1.99. A whopper of a deal!

   Over at Palace Station, Jack’s Irish Pub plays host to all the Green Bay Packers football games and offers food and drink specials as a tribute to the cheese heads. Get real Wisconsin Sheboygan Bratwurst sandwiches, (jalapeno and cheddar, or traditional,) for $1.50, or try “Packer Punch,” a combination of Smirnoff Ice with Midori for $3. Guinness, Harp or Bass beers and ales all sell for three bucks too.

   “Young at Heart” members, a free club for those 55 and over, at Sam’s Town, can chow down at the Firelight Lunch Buffet Monday through Friday, (excluding holidays,) for only $4.99. If you qualify, (55 or older,) have your Young at Heart sticker placed on your Prime Rewards slot club card at the Rewards Center. See the list of details including other benefits for members posted at the Center.

   How about something for nothing? For a limited time only, get a free baseball hat at Arizona Charlie’s EAST if you sign up as a first time member for their new Ultimate Rewards slot club card. The caps feature the brand name logo in red letters on a black hat. Pretty cool deal-especially for free.

   That’s it for this week. Until next time, Eat well, play well, stay well!”
