    Enjoy the beers at Triple 7. I was just in Vegas last week for work and some time celebrating my friend’s 40th birthday. Love the Black Chip Porter.

      I’ll try it; I do loves me some good porter. And since I’m staying at MSS for three nights, I have no excuse not to hit Triple 7.

        The beers are currently $1.75 24-7 at the VP bar in the back. The 777 restaurant has a happy hour with more taps but otherwise they’re more expensive in the restaurant.

      This has most definitely make it onto the Tony Snyder’s Clip Board of Fun! I can’t WAIT to get bombed there!

    My Vegas steakhouse experiences are limited, but I am a fan of Circus-Circus’ the Steakhouse (and that is the only thing I am a fan of at that casino).

    The best cheap steak deal (really, it’s very good for the money) is the $8.99 steak special at Ellis Island, a locals casino off Koval Ave. behind Ballys. The price used to be $6 and it now requires you join the slot club and put a buck in a machine, but it’s still great. You get a 10-ounce filet, vegetable, potato, soup/salad, bread and a 20-ounce house-made beer or root beer.

    Highly recommended.

      I’ve never dined at Ellis Island … I’ll have to add it to my list of to-dos.

      I’ve heard good things about this meal, as well, Mike. We tried going there one time and the waitress was BEYOND clueless when I asked about the steak dinner. So we walked out. To be clear, it’s not on the menu, am I correct?

        No, not on the menu but there are plaques all over the place for its numerous Best of Las Vegas awards from the Review-Journal newspaper. It’s not a secret on any level. I can’t believe a worker didn’t know about it. It’s been on the Travel Channel!

        Everything in that restaurant is pretty cheap and tasty. They also have a ribs restaurant that locals love but I haven’t tried it.

        And 20-ounce beers from the casino bar are around $2 (sometimes as low as $1, especially during sporting events). The beer is much better at Main Street, but can’t complain for the price.
