Cheap Drinks At Suncoast

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-Connected players 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.
