Vegas Grief As y'all know, I get really emotional in the days leading up to and following a Vegas trip. I'm a big believer in being real, with Vegas but…
Final Day: Redemption My final day, I started wandering the streets of Las Vegas trying to find a Credit Union Co-op ATM that accepts deposits at 2 in the morning.…
Day 2: Obsession (Note Due to excitement of Las Vegas and the excitement of everyday life. This recollection was created approximately two weeks after my trip) I’ve fallen into the…

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).
Much like the El Cortez’ boarding pass promotion, the Club One properties offer some compelling deals if you present a boarding pass from select airlines within 24 hours of landing (no stay required).
If you flew Southwest, Spirit, or Allegiant, you’re eligible for $50 of match play… for free! (more…)
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.
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…
