Curious about a restaurant, event, or other Las Vegas attraction that looks fun? Let us review it for you first! Suggestions are always welcome at:

LAS VEGAS NEWS – of interest to tourists:

TOURS, TOURS, TOURS! – Every time you visit, you probably see those glossy ads advertising tours to The Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam, Laughlin, and more. We have teamed up with Las Vegas Tour Desk to now offer you the best tours at great low prices! And unlike many tour companies who post a “come on” price and then hit you with every fee in the book after it’s too late, we list the actual complete price of the tours. No funny business or hidden fees. Just the great at low prices. Las Vegas Tour Desk has been booking only the best tours for years. See our new tour page at

BUFFETS – since we won’t be doing any buffet reviews for a about a month, you may wish to read comments regarding buffets as Paris, Bellagio, and the Resort at Summerlin. Story at

BEST OF LAS VEGAS – City Life magazine has released their reader’s poll results this week at

75 CENT BEER – Binion’s Horseshoe downtown dropped the price on ALL beer (both domestic and imports) at their casino bars to 75 cents this week. The bars have small signs on them noting the price. If you are downtown, it’s a heck of a deal. Also, we are proud to now be booking discount rooms for Binion’s at (Binion’s Horseshoe link).

FIESTA EXPANSION – has added a 1927 Kimball pipe organ as the centerpiece of Roxy’s Pipe Organ Pizzeria, an oyster bar, and expanded Gardu±o’s restaurant with patio seating. Full story at and Fiesta discount rooms available at

NEW YEARS EVE LAS VEGAS ROOMS – are still available! Call Hotel Reservations Network at (800) 666-5268 for a free price quote! NOTE: You MUST stay on the line until you get a person. HRN is NOT booking these specific dates online. We will be leaving this notice up as long as rooms continue to be available, but they are starting to go fast.

Eric was also the winner of the Sam’s Town Buffet coupon. Olivia Flaversham of Burtonsville, MD was the winner of the pass for four to Casino Legends.
