Buffets are always a bargain in Las Vegas at almost any casino you visit. While the Mirage has closed their main buffet for extensive remodeling (scheduled to reopen mid-summer) they have opened a "temporary buffet" in the interim. The new temporary buffet is located in the Bermuda Room, part of the convention area (near the pool and Danny Gans theater). It’s open daily from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Breakfast is priced at $10.50 for adults and $7.75 for children 5-10 years old. Lunch is $13.50 (adults) and $9.25 (children). Dinner runs $16.50 (adults) and $12.25 for the kids. Children under 5 eat for free.
At sister hotel, TI (Treasure Island) Canter’s Deli, a Jewish-style delicatessen, has temporarily closed to make way for a new, full-service-125-seat restaurant scheduled for completion this spring. The expansion of the deli will feature Canter’s original corned beef and pastrami sandwiches, homemade pickles, plus other Canter’s favorites, including the signature barley bean soup, New York cheesecake and famous chocolate chip race track cake.
Texas Station continues to offer "Endless Pastabilities" at their San Lorenzo Italian Restaurant with specials starting at just $6.99 every Monday through Thursday. If you’re a player with points built up on your Boarding Pass account you can also use them at San Lorenzo for half-off points for early bird dining seven days a week from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Station’s owned Wildfire Casino on Rancho Drive across the street from Texas is running a $2.49 burger and fries platter special in Dante’s Grill. The offer is good 24 hours a day but you must be a Wildfire player’s club member and show your card when you order. Of course, the club is always free to join if you’re not already a member. Get free bonus slot play cash when you sign up, too! For beer lovers, the Inferno Bar at Wildfire is serving Tecate for only 99 cents.
Coupons are another good way to save and do Vegas "on the cheap." At Arizona Charlie’s Decatur you’ll find coupons scattered about (check the front desk or slot club booth) for a free pizza coupon from Noble Roman’s with the purchase of same and two drinks, or another coupon good for a free Subway sandwich with a purchase of same.
Until next time, "Eat well, play well, stay well!"
