Jerry’s Nugget comes through with yet another monthly special that goes easy on the wallet and great on the plate! The Canal Street Café is featuring an 8 ounce New York steak and pan fried shrimp meal deal for just $5.49 throughout the month of May. The special is served Sundays through Thursdays; from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. Start the meal with your choice of home-made soup or a fresh, crisp garden salad. Side dishes include your choice of whipped or baked potato, French fries or rice, plus a selection of garlic or French breads.

The Loose Trax Bar at the Wild Wild West Gambling Hall is currently offering 22 ounce draft beers served in a logo mug for $4. Keep the mug as a souvenir gift. Refills are only $3. Enjoy the draft with some of their terrific 20¡ wings! The casino also runs free $500 video poker tournaments every Wednesday and free $500 blackjack tournaments every Thursday. Both tournaments run from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. The only requirement is that you must have a Wild Card (slot club card) to participate, which, of course, is free to join.
