Two Is the Magic Number for Breakfast, Bloodies and Bowling

bloody_mary_WEBCall it the end-of-summer bargain blowout. Lots of deals are flying around this month, both in and out of the casinos.

The hard-promoting Rebel Republic (3540 W. Sahara Ave.) serves half-price breakfasts 6 to 9 a.m. Mon-Fri. There are seven choices, including build-your-own omelets, a breakfast burrito, and steak and eggs for $3.50-$6.50 after discount. Rebel Republic also runs decent happy hours daily from 2 to 6 p.m. and 1 to 5 a.m., with $2 PBR, $3 Fireball shots, $4 well and wine, and $5 appetizers. From 6 to 10 p.m. on Tuesdays, tacos, Tecates, margaritas and tequila shots are $2 each.

Here’s another steak-and-eggs deal: Echo & Rig in Tivoli Village has a happy hour with just three choices—the Echo dog for $1, a shrimp cocktail for $1.99, and steak and egg also $1.99. The star of the show is the steak and egg—2-4 ounces of whatever cut of steak they decide to use that day, perfectly cooked to order and served with a single fried egg. Two bucks! The dog and shrimp aren’t bad, either. Draft beer is $3; premium wells—and these are about as premium as it gets (e.g., Kettle One in the gun, although they don’t use guns) —is $4, and wine is $5. The happy hour runs everyday from 3 to 6 p.m., then again from 10 p.m. to close except on Sundays.

Lahaina Grill (4570 S. Hualapai Way) has served (almost) all-day sushi for years, and it has a good all-you-can-eat deal that’s $19.95 for lunch and $26.95 for dinner. The special runs till midnight, then it’s a la carte till 5 a.m., but during that time everything on the sushi menu is half-price. That’s two-piece orders of tuna nigiri for $2.25 and premium rolls for $4.50. The same deal is offered at all hours to gamblers who buy in (and play) for $100. I recently went the comp route and pulled down an order of tuna, an order of super-white tuna and a Las Vegas roll for $9.70.

Speaking of comps for gamblers, play table games for two hours with minimum bets of $5 Sun-Thu at Aliante and get a comped breakfast or lunch buffet. Be sure to show a boss your players card when you begin.

For years, Casino Royale has had the beer market cornered with its dollar Michelob served 24/7. That same deal is now being offered at the Silver Sevens bars, along with $2 Bloody Marys.

The bowling alley at Santa Fe Station is running $2 Tuesdays from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., with $2 bowling, shoe rental and snacks. Yep, lots of 2’s out there this week.
