    $1 Blackjack Lives On at Lucky Club

    By Anthony Curtis

    Las Vegas is nothing if not a marketing juggernaut. With so many casinos, bars, restaurants, shows, clubs, etc., competing for the same thing, good ideas that are discontinued in one place often quickly show up somewhere else.

    Debbie Reynolds, Princess Leia and the Family Band

    By Lissa Townsend Rodgers

    When we go to a show, we know what to expect. Sure, we may not know the exact set list or the precise patter or have spoiler-ed the big finish, but we’ve got an idea. Not so with Debbie Reynolds’ upcoming gig at South Point.

    A Roller-Derby Doubleheader, Pre-Labor Day Fireworks

    By Bob Whitby

    The Sin City Rollergirls are emerging from their summer hibernation with a doubleheader: The Notorious VIP take on the Flying Aces, and the Tommy Gun Terrors bust it up with the Hoover Damned. If you’ve never seen the ladies in action, you’re missing a bruising good time.

    Where to Buy Low on Bivalves

    By Anthony Curtis

    Have you checked the price of oysters lately? I’ve seen ‘em by the dozen for $28, $32, $36 and even higher in the fancy restaurants. Those babies are top of the line, but come on. The lowest price on raw oysters continues to be at South Point’s Big Sur Oyster Bar, where oysters and clams are half-price from noon to 4 p.m.

    The Most Fun You Can Have on a Monday

    By Anthony Curtis

    With football back, so too is the Monday Night Football party season. Always a big part of the casino scene, MNF parties have been de-emphasized over the past few years, but there are still events going on all around town. The season is young, so I need to poke around for a few more weeks to get the whole story.

    The Deal: Sushi, 88 Cent Oysters and Free Dirty Comedy

    By Anthony Curtis

    In Las Vegas we can get an all-you-can-eat deal by hitting one of about 50 casino buffets any day of the week, but there are some strong plays outside the casinos, too. One of the best is an unlimited sushi deal at Sushi Mon (9770 S. Maryland Pkwy.). This is a powerhouse at $21.95 for lunch and $26.95 for dinner, with a big window of availability from 11:45 a.m. to 1 a.m., and a huge selection and high-grade fish. Anyone who’s done the typical all-you-can-eat sushi deal knows that there’s almost always at least one of these elements missing from the equation, but not here.

    Resort Fees May Cost Casinos Goodwill

    By David G. Schwartz

    Pop quiz: You run a hotel in a destination that’s had a rough few years and is reliant on customer goodwill for repeat visitation. Someone tells you a way that you can make more money from your customers, at the cost of annoying and potentially alienating them. Do you: A) Ask them if they’ve lost their mind. B) Conduct a survey of guests to gauge just how receptive they are to the idea. C) Apologize profusely to guests and implement this innovation in as transparent a method as possible.

  • March Madness for Less

    By Anthony Curtis

    For many sports fans, the NCAA basketball tournament is the biggest event of the year. And the best part of the biggest event takes place March 21-24, when the tournament field gets pared from 64 to 16. If you haven’t experienced being in a sportsbook for March Madness, you need to give it a try, especially on this opening weekend, when the games begin early and run one after another all day long for four days straight.

    South Point Puts It On (the) Line

    By David G. Schwartz

    On Aug. 23, the Nevada Gaming Commission approved the South Point’s application to run a legal online poker room—the first Nevada casino to be granted such a license. We are on the cusp of writing history. So what’s really going on with the operation, which will probably start accepting real money bets on poker before Halloween?
