    Getting a Grip on Gridiron Glory

    By Anthony Curtis

    The Great Giveaway, at Station Casinos, is no more. Don’t panic—it’s been replaced by a new contest called Gridiron Glory that, played properly, figures to be a better deal for most players.

    Football Contests Offer Great Value

    By Anthony Curtis

    Summer’s over. It’s football time. That means lots of fun things in Las Vegas—Monday Night Football parties, game-day food and drink specials, and, of course, football contests. The contests represent an excellent gambling opportunity, given that you can enter for a low (or even no) cost and get a season’s worth of action, and a chance at a monster payday.

    By Grace Bascos

    Last week, Red Rock Resort announced a $35 million expansion, which includes importing two Chicago residents: the notorious Wieners Circle and Mercadito. But parent company Station Casinos apparently isn’t done yet.

    By Anthony Curtis

    I love creative gambling deals, and a good one is running through December 29 at Station Casinos’ newest Wildfires—one in Anthem and another on Valley View Boulevard.

    Buffets, Pennies and Party Rooms

    By Anthony Curtis

    There’s been a lot of hype lately about the expensive buffets around town, and I have to admit that even I was seduced to some degree. But the classic buffet concept long synonymous with Las Vegas is the lower-priced all-you-can-eat spread—and the best of the bunch now are the “Feasts” at Station Casinos. These are regularly priced at $4.99 for breakfast, $7.99 for lunch, and $9.99 for dinner and Sunday brunch at Palace, Boulder, Texas, Sunset and Santa Fe Stations, while at Green Valley Ranch and Red Rock, dinner is $13.99.

  • Casino Crime Growing Up

    By David G. Schwartz

    De Rong Shang’s sentencing today  to six years in prison for masterminding a credit fraud that took Station Casinos for more than $1 million says a lot about “real” vs. “reel” casino crime.

    A debut, a superbuffet and a fond farewell

    By Anthony Curtis

    It wasn’t accompanied by a lot of fanfare, but a new casino opened this week—the new Wildfire Sunset, formerly the Gold Rush, next to Sunset Station. Wildfire Sunset is a slots-only casino (no table games) with a sportsbook. There’s also a Wildburger, a 24-hour restaurant that serves big hamburgers for $8.

    Tuscan Angel Hair, Pasta Cucina

    By Grace Bascos

    Pasta Cucina, which has outposts at various Station Casinos, understands the meaning of al dente and that often pasta needs no more than just a few fresh ingredients to make it sing. Delicate angel hair is tossed with diced tomatoes, garlic and basil, toasted pine nuts and feta cheese for a simple and satisfying yet comforting dish.

  • Labor Smackdown!

    By Bob Whitby

    Perhaps you’ve seen the TV ads, the ones in which casino employees stare straight into a camera focused a little too tightly on their faces and recite lines in unnervingly robotic tones regarding how thankful they are not only to be working, but working for Station Casinos. If you find the ads more puzzling, or creepy, than informative, don’t blame the messengers. As spokespeople these folks may not be polished, but they’re probably sincere.

    Gumbo, Oyster Bar, Station Casinos

    By Grace Bascos

    There are only a few more designated days to laissez les bons temps rouler. Mardi Gras draws to a close when Fat Tuesday arrives on Feb. 21. Get your Creole on with this traditional soup fortified with filet, seafood, Andouille sausage and okra, served with a steaming scoop of white rice. You can pick and choose just what you want in your gumbo, but Mardi Gras is supposed to be about going all out! So, order the house special, brimming with not just crab and shrimp but lobster as well.

    Holiday Cheer

    By Anthony Curtis

    Las Vegas is a tough sell on the holidays. Some come, but most of the Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa crowd would rather spend the holidays at home with family than have a December blowout in Sin City. Go figure. For those of us who live here, though, it’s a different story. We can stay at home and take advantage of the good deals the casinos throw our way. Here are a few of them:
