Man Vegas has changed quite a bit since the last time I was there 2008. I stayed at Ballys and played Darts there. Really never left that area (Flamingo and forget the name of other casino next to it) except to go to Hooters for $.25 cent wings after midnight and Ellis Island.. (Need to get a Hooters reward card), Not as many people there as I remember, seems to be about half with many many empty blackjack and three card poker tables.
Bally's sports book, real nice viewing area for Horses and for the mainstream games. The people taking the bets are great, and are liberal in giving away free drinks for bets. (You do have to ask for them)
DRINKING and EATING
If you like Bud Light, going to Hooters is a must. $1.50 beers all the time and that is great if you go with people who do not gamble. Like I said the wings are quarter after midnight with players card, or .50 without.
Bally's has a tequila bar with Jose Cuervo being $2 per shot with Budlight and Medello drafts for $2 as well. They have a Tequila fermenting in melon, it's $7 a shot but very good on the rocks,, The bartender gave me liberal pours.
Ellis Island... If you want the BBQ it is served on special days and it starts at 4 PM and end at about 10 PM. Never tried it but that is what I was told by the hostess.
Flamingos.... Lunch buffet was nothing to get excited about..
Does anyone know where there is a 24 hour buffet in Vegas?
The rooms were dead and seldom had any games going. Disappointing.
I am sure there is more that will pop up.
