I think the graveyard steak n eggs at south point is still $3-$4, although it's essentially the same thing as taking your belt off, cutting it into pieces and eating it.

I'm exhausted just reading that itinerary. You sure you all want to run that hard?

Edit. I take it back. You've programmed some down time/nap into each afternoon, so it should be more relaxed than it first seemed. Have fun!

BBB, I did program some downtime, but I'm not sure how much more or less we'll need. However, I know they are troopers. Uncle was a marine and aunt was a school teacher.

Price went up slowly over the years to $11.99. $9.99 if you get a players card...and -$2 discount if you play $5.

However, the $6 taco bowl is huge. Not sure which hours the Taco stand is open, but it was good stuff (and 1/3 the price on the strip).

At $9.99 for steak, I would suggest Orleans of Main St buffet...or off-strip local buffets & restaurants.

I will check Orleans. Thanks for the suggestions

I don't think we'll last until those hours!

Sounds like a great trip!

Day 2::
6:00AM Wake up! (They are early risers)
6:30AM arrive at Joker's Wild for their $2.49 breakfast and gamble for a few hours (my aunt will dig $0.25 roulette)

You may want to check with JW as to how early they open their roulette table. When I went, we got there early in the morning, but they didn't open the craps table until 9. However, I did make good use of my time while I was waiting!

If you want a good, nice, not too-smokey and near strip area with 5$ 3:2 blackjack, go to Palms! Amazing casino, good employes, location is not perfect but there are free shuttles(to anyone) from ballys to Rio, which is few hundred meters from Palms. I know that Gold coast(near Palms) also have 5$ 3:2 games but I didn't try.

*They changed ownership recently to Maybe this information is dated.

For other cheap blackjack, there are video 6:5 blackjack with 3$ minimum in MGM and Excalibur(probably more), few 3:2 5$ machines at Venetian, and something new(I haven't try it on my trip...) in Venetain: stadium gaming, hybrid of live and machine, 5$ 6:5 blackjack.
There are also 5$ (6:5) in many place-I saw in New York, Excalibur, Linq and Circus-Circus. I think I saw 2$(maybe even 1$) machines of 1:1 blackjack but I don't remember if it was Excalibur or Monte Carlo.

Many places have on the video poker or multi-game machine, under dollar(even 0.25$) "blackjack" with no doubling or splitting and 1:1 odds(but few bonuses). I guess the house edge is very high though, and the game is head-up vs the machine(very fast...).

It's Vegas, baby! If I am looking to save money eating, I just drink more for free! JK

Amen brother.

I remember talking to Mrs. Q on the ol' cell phone once, and she said as long as I wasn't drinking and gambling, then that's fine. I'm still confused about that concept.
