I recently found two cheap drink options at Suncoast. The first deal (and most important to me) that I found at Suncoast is at their bars. They sell Corona and Heineken for just $2.Why is this such a good deal?
Well, Red Rock Resort (my joint) is just down the street and sells Corona for $4.50. That’s twice the price for a much nicer environment. There’s one caveat at Suncoast – you have to ask for lime for your Corona because of the lime shortage. THAT’S CRAZY! You’ll notice my beer doesn’t have a lime…yet.
Another cheap drink I found at Suncoast is $8 bottles of wine at Cafe Sienna. This isn’t much of a deal on a great wine since this is about how much the wine sells for at liquor stores. It’s just cheap booze. 🙂
The real win here is that you can get a 40% discount for the bottle if you pay for it using your B-Connectedplayers club card. That’s a sweet bottle of cheap wine in a casino for $5 in comps! I haven’t tried this yet but I think I can be convinced fairly easily.
I’ve been asked why I talking about downtown so much. There are a lot of reasons, but a few are good gambling, cheap food and drink and it’s relaxed atmosphere.
I like going downtown for a day/night to do some low brow eating, drinking and gambling. Nothing fancy is happening and I probably didn’t shower. You know, so I fit in. I don’t always want to gamble this way, but when I do these are the casinos I frequent downtown.
The Golden Gate casino is the oldest casino in Vegas and was recently renovated and while the casino floor is more cramped then most in Vegas, it’s decor is warm and it feels clean and is comfortable. It doesn’t hurt that the dealers are also go-go dancers, many of which aren’t ugly. The dealers are also the dancers and many of them are featured on the chips. On my last visit I was playing blackjack and noticed I kept losing when a specific dealer was on top of my chip stack. After telling the dealer to get rid of all chips with that girl she revealed that the girl on the chip was her best friend in the casino. We laughed, we both made money because doubled my buy in and I tip when I win. A good time was had by all.
Golden Gate is also home to DuPar’s Bakery and home of the best pancakes I’ve ever had. The drawn butter helps. A lot. A short stack is $6 and these make for a perfect late night snack. Just stay away from the coffee. It’s awful.
All of these reasons, make the Golden Gate one of my favorite casinos downtown.
