From uptown to downtown, enjoy some incredible holiday specials

Nov 5, 2002 1:42 AM

   The Silver Nugget Casino (formerly called Mahoney’s Silver Nugget-same owners, slightly different name) in North Las Vegas serves a “Deuces Wild” breakfast in the North Side Grill for $2.22. As the name implies, you get two of everything. Two eggs prepared as you like, two pancakes, two bacon strips and two sausage links for the $2.22 price. Best of all, the special deal is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week!

   Downtown at Fitzgerald’s the Jackpot Deli is now open with indoor and outdoor seating. Next summer, according to management, a misting system will be added outdoors for comfort and cooling. The fast-food type outlet serves hot and cold sandwiches, salads, chili, pastries and hot and cold drinks, all at very reasonable prices. A sample of the menu includes: Hot Corned Beef $5.25, Hot Pastrami $5.95, Hot Roast Beef $5.95, Turkey $5.95, Ham $5.25, Italian Sub $5.95, Chicken Salad $4.95 or Tuna Salad $4.95. Looks like a great place to view the Fremont Street Experience nightly light show while enjoying some good food and drink!

   The snack bars at Binion’s Horseshoe are another downtown favorite. Most items are in the $3 to $6 range. All are served fast, hot and delicious at bargain prices.

   The new Jillian’s also downtown inside Neonopolis is getting great reviews. They reportedly offer daily lunch specials for $5.99. The lunch specials include a beverage and they open at 11 a.m. Sounds like one of the current better lunch bargains in downtown.

   Planning ahead:

   In the upcoming weeks many casinos will be promoting Thanksgiving meal deals and holiday buffet specials. We’ll start with an early announcement from Station Casino’s this week and bring you the updates each week as we receive them. All Station’s Feast Buffets (Boulder, Palace, Sunset, Texas and Green Valley Ranch) will be serving an early brunch on Thanksgiving, November 28 for $6.99 followed by an evening traditional Thanksgiving Feast buffet with all the trimmings for $11.99. You can smell the turkey and pumpkin pie already! For a sit-down meal, the Station Café’s (coffee shops) will also be offering traditional favorites at special prices.

   For good cheap entertainment options this month:

   The Palms Casino Resort features “Acoustic Asylum” every Tuesday through November beginning at 10:30 p.m. in the lounge. It’s a free opportunity to see regional artists of all types showcase their talents. Drink specials are available for $2. Ask your server.

   The Las Vegas Hilton offers Disco Nights in the Nightclub (Burn Baby, Burn) every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 11 p.m. to 3 a.m. Dance the night away to DJ’s spinning the best of the 70’s and 80’s. There is never a cover charge and never a drink minimum. Just what the doctor ordered!

   Until next time, ”Eat well, play well, stay well!”
