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.

Happy Hours

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

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

January 15, 2019: Day 5 of the of the 5th Annual Destination Birthday Party in Las Vegas

It’s no secret that the last day in Vegas sucks.

Not only are you often starting to feel the cumulative effects of four days of sleep deprivation and binge drinking, but you also have to come to terms with the fact that your vacation in (literal) Paradise is coming to an end, and it’s almost time to return to the daily grind of work and life’s bullshit.

So what better way to simultaneously drown your sorrows/celebrate than with a bottomless mimosa brunch?

What could possibly go wrong?

January 14, 2019: Day 4 of the of the 5th Annual Destination Birthday Party in Las Vegas

As if I haven’t destroyed my body enough throughout the course of the past 72 hours, it’s time to permanently deface my arm with some ink to provide a constant physical reminder that what happens in Vegas doesn’t necessarily stay in Vegas…

I’ve got an appointment with Chad James at Studio 21 for 1pm. He’s going to add on to the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign he tattooed onto my left bicep last trip, starting a Vegas band.

Vice Advice #8: Sharing Players Cards

QUESTION #8

Is there a way around or what are the best practices for using our Total Rewards Card (Caesars Rewards)? What I am truly looking into is… my wife and I both gamble in Vegas and only once a year average stay is usually 4-5 days. Can we link our rewards cards or will they give us a second card so we can both play (using the same account) at different parts of the casino? Hoping to have enough play to get something while we are still in Vegas each trip. Building for future room isn’t really an option because its a year before we get back. Let me know your thoughts and have really enjoyed the page and have also enjoyed your twitter.

January 13, 2019: Day 3 of the of the 5th Annual Destination Birthday Party in Las Vegas

Going to bed at 7:00am, a time when most people are starting their day, usually means that you’ve had a fun night.

But it also means that your morning is going to suck. And Eugene and I went to bed fully aware that we owed the fiddler.

Mercifully, when the alarm rings about 5 hours too early at 10:00am, Eugene and I are feeling surprisingly good for having had less than 3 hours of sleep.
