   More Thanksgiving specials continue to roll as the casinos plan their holiday menus, but first we’ll look at some new meal deals and show specials.

   The Upper Deck restaurant at the Las Vegas Club downtown serves four nightly graveyard breakfast specials from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. Take your choice of a New York steak and eggs special, corned beef and hash, eggs and bacon or pancakes and bacon for only $2.99 each.

   All are served with breakfast sides of potatoes and toast. They also offer a morning breakfast special consisting of two eggs, Portuguese sausage, potatoes and toast for $3.25 any day of the week from 6-11 a.m. Ultimate Club members (slot club) get $1 off any meal in the Upper Deck simply by presenting your card to the wait staff upon ordering.

   The Palms has discontinued their mid-week Hawaiian buffet nights but have added a new Crab Legs and Prime Rib Buffet every Friday. The all-you-can-eat deal is $13.99 from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. Hint: Go early or go late to avoid the long Friday lines! If you or your family and friends need a room for the week of November 24 to 27, the Palms is also offering one of the lowest price room rates we’ve ever seen for the posh hotel: $49 will get you in overnight. For reservations call 1-866-942-7771.

   Being billed as “The Funniest Night of your Life,” Nevada locals can get two-for-one tickets to the Plaza’s new Comedy Zone shows. Regular ticket price is $14.95. Show a Nevada driver’s license at the box office to get your twofers. Showtime is 9 p.m. nightly except Mondays. Good deal! No word as to an expiration date on this offer.

   If you still haven’t firmed up your plans for Thanksgiving dinner, you’re sure to find excellent specials all over town. Over the past few weeks we’ve looked at some of the super-special buffets and the cheapest of the cheap. The holiday menus continue to pour in from all the over the valley. Here are a few more choices from some of the Strip hotels.

   The Sahara’s all-you-can-eat buffet will feature roast turkey, roast prime rib of beef au jus, roast pork with natural gravy, mashed potatoes, corn on the cob, candied yams and much more. The Thanksgiving buffet will be served from noon until 10 p.m., and the cost is just $8.95 per person.

   For traditional dining, the Caravan Coffee Shop in the Sahara will offer guests their choice of two entrees: roast young tom turkey served on a bed of savory traditional stuffing or baked Virginia ham served with mashed potatoes, giblet gravy, julienne cut green beans almandine and cranberry sauces. Both selections are served with corn chowder, turkey noodle soup or salad and a delectable dessert of apple, pumpkin or mincemeat pie. Dinner will be served from noon until 10 p.m. for $7.95 per person.

   For something a little more upscale that won’t set you back an arm and a leg, you might want to try Bally’s Sidewalk Café. They will feature a traditional Thanksgiving feast that starts with grilled corn chowder with jumbo lump crabmeat and, a fresh garden salad with caramelized walnut vinaigrette dressing. The main course will be oven-roasted turkey, fresh giblet gravy and an array of fall squashes and potatoes. The large assortment of holiday desserts will include pumpkin pie, apple pie and pumpkin cheesecake. The Thanksgiving feast will be available from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. at $16.95 per person.

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