Long time lurker here, #1

Hello, I am visiting Vegas on sep6th . Since I donít know anything about vegas. Can any of you locals hel me out. I am going to stay at Ballyís. Got Thursday and Sunday night comped. Will be paying 47$ Friday and Saturday 180$. Since I want to stay on the strip. Am I getting a good deal? Can u tell me places where I can eat for real cheap like $5 steaks, cheap buffet etc. And also at that time sep 6-9 is there any events taking place. How will the weather be ? Should I pack jackets. Any helpful tips would be appreciated. Thank you in advance

Get a copy of American Casino guide. There are a ton of coupons in it for food and free play.

No jackets in early Sept. You will be melting even in shorts.

There are no more $5 steaks.
I got a plan, we take all your picks we reverse them like one of those twilight zone episodes where everything is the opposite. You say "black" we go white.

Pretty much your one and only option for great deals staying mid strip of course is Ellis Island, a short 5 minute walk east of Ballys. You can get a good steak and eggs deal (I think $8) and a good dinner deal (ribs I think) there. And the VP and,Blackjack is quite reasonable and actually pays 3:2.

I like the pool at Ballys -- simple and large.

And yeah it will be very hot in September.

You're not getting a great deal for Saturday night obviously. But it's probably worth the extra few bucks to not change hotels for one night. No more cheap buffets on the strip. Like the other poster said, get the ACG.

It gets cold in the casinos.

Yes, bring a light jacket and a pair of pants, just in case.

It will be hot but like others have said you'll be inside most of the time gambling, eating, and watching shows, and you might get chilly if they have the air cranked.

Are you paying $47 and $180 with resort fees or without? That can also make a huge difference, if you're getting a deal or not. What status are you in TR?

Off strip still some good deals

The Ellis Island steak dinner is served in the Café and requires that you print out two coupons from an EI kiosk, the second after playing at least $5 in any slot machine with your club card inserted, to get the $7.99 price.

Klondike Sunset serves two good prime rib specials in Sarahís Kitchenóone for $12.99 beginning at 11 am and another for $5.55 beginning at 3 pm.

Lucky,

Flamingo would probably be cheaper. Bally's is a bit nicer, but the flamingo pool is a bumpin good time (as the kids say). Seriously though, they have a great pool scene. Have you ever played with caesars before? How much do you plan on gaming? I only ask because you might be able to get some of your bill comped off with your play by the end of your trip, just don't be afraid to ask a host on call.
Playing it correctly means you've already won.
