#SoberVegas: The Prologue (feat. Patrick Hardin)

Much to my surprise, I found out recently that people actually read my Degenerate Diaries when Patrick Hardin (@TheGamesOfPatrick) slid into my DMs and asked if I’d be open to a guest contributor.

Considering that I’d pretty much forgotten that I run this blog amidst my chronic COVID-induced Las Vegas withdrawal pains, the obvious question (just as when I ask myself anything to do with my dignity) was “what’ve I got to lose?” (Spoiler alert: the answer to both is a resounding “nothing”).

Adding Patrick’s experiences to the Degenerate Diaries was a no-brainer. I’ve always been a proponent of creating the Vegas experience that you want. So what better way to promote that than to feature Patrick’s stories of Sober Vegas?

What will follow in Patrick’s guest degen pieces is sure to be a lot different than my usual Vegas experience, yet it will be no less amazing. I hope that both sober and drunk readers alike will enjoy the new perspective and following along with Patrick’s trip.

Without further ado, here’s Sober Vegas through Patrick’s words (with the exception of the captions on this post, because Patrick is a sucker and didn’t include any).

El Cortez Match Play

Sometimes the best kept secrets are right there in front of you, and you just have to be in the know enough to ask. That’s definitely the case at one of my favorite downtown grind joints, as even *I* was surprised to discover my last trip.

Although many may underestimate the yellow-tinted and heavily-perfumed dive, it turns out they offer one of the best free deals in Las Vegas!

The El Cortez has an excellent deal (that amounts to about $40 worth of match play, free play, and drinks) if you show the player’s club a boarding pass from any airline within 24 hours of landing.

DEAL ALERT: Vegas.com Holiday Cyber Sale ($50 Promo Code)

I’ve never been one for Black Friday shopping, since I much prefer to sleep off my overindulgence from the comforts of my bed. I do make one exception, though: the Vegas.com Holiday Cyber Sale.

Vegas.com is back at it again this year, offering a $50 credit with any purchase made between November 25 and December 2.

If my years of value hunting in Las Vegas have taught me one thing, it’s that you’ve got to smoke ’em when you’ve got ’em. And this is a smoking deal.

Read on to find out how to exploit this promotion for the maximum value.

One of the many beautiful things about Las Vegas is that time doesn't really matter; it may or may not be 5 o'clock somewhere, but nobody's keeping track in Vegas…

Question #10: Off the Strip

  • Post category:Vice Advice

QUESTION #10

This will be our 4th time to Vegas for our anniversary. We usually stay on strip all week and one night at Fremont. This year I am trying to convince my wife to go off the strip and visit the local casinos. Do you have any suggestions, we fly in so we will have to Uber wherever we go.

I want to get off the strip for a few nights out for dinner and gambling. Any help would be great, facing surgery when we return, want to make this something special, might not make it back again

Vice Advice #9: 24 Hour Diners

QUESTION #9

We went to the Peppermill and loved it, any restaurants similar to that. Great tasting food for lunch.
Also, maybe a higher end dinner place that won’t make me have to get a loan
