If it's on the N64 and the original version, my brother and I will be there to collect the winnings. Of course there's probably a 1% chance it's on the original game.. =P
I've read through the blog and everybody provided great tips. I think he most AP thing you can do is to rent a car for a week. I don't know when you're going, but Vegas rental costs are dirt cheap! Sometimes I rent a vehicle because it's cheaper than round-trip costs of taxi for a weekend. It also helps that you are a diamond member. Trying to eat "cheap" on the strip will run you dry. If you had a car, you can go to off-strip casinos like Silverton, Red Rock, GVR, and etc to take advantage of their dirt cheap breakfast buffets. I highly recommend the Grand Canyon as well if you're going to be there for a week. Chances are, you may get sick of it. Let me give you some cheap recommendations when it comes to dining.
Yea I was just looking and it's cheaper to rent for a week than I thought, around $200. I wanted to go to off strip casinos like palace station and whatnot. How is the parking situation on/off the strip? Flamingo has a garage, right? I'm hardwired to think city+car=misery from spending time in Philly and NYC, but it seems like vegas might be a little different.
Carl Jr's has a fantastic $4 real deal. Double cheeseburger, spicy chicken sandwich, fries and a soda.
Del Taco has a great $1 menu, as does Arbys from 2pm to 5pm.
Lunch ,alone, every day will save you a good bit. I used to have an energy shake for breakfast, one of the above for lunch and then could splurge a bit for dinner.
A number of places in the ACG offer free buffets for easily obtained point levels. If you spend more than $20 a person on food, you aren't trying.
It surely would be fun to see a BARE BONE Vegas trip report where a member attempts to eat and get drunk with 10-dollar-a-day budget and grind on the strip. The catch is...you can use any legal means to get calories in and drink alcoholic beverages. I'm sure a day can be done, but a week would be a huge challenge.
Ellis Island is 1 block east of Bally's (but it's a LONG block).Quote: Joeman
You may want to take a walk (or short Uber ride) over to Ellis Island for a decent gamble and their steak dinner special. They offer $5-$500 freeplay for new members (Mrs. Joeman and I both got $5). Run $5 through a machine and you can get a voucher (actually 2 vouchers) for the $7.99 steak dinner. If you want more info, Mission slipped in a review over on the Hotels page a few months back.
