Come On and Get Happy

24 Nov

Finding a cheap drink in Vegas is like finding real breasts, they exist, but you just have to know where to look.  I went on a mission to find all of the best deals in the city.  It doesn’t matter if you live here or any place else, if you are in Vegas at any time or any day, there will be spot for you to get happy drinking some cheap drinks.  

If you do not mind leaving the strip, a great place to find some cheap drinks is Downtown.  Walking down Fremont Street, and by walking I mean partying, there are many opportunities to score $1 margaritas and a bottle of beer under $3.  Remember you get when you pay for though, so the streets and pubs tend to be older.

Lets us not forget, the easiest way to score a free drink is gambling.  Even if you are not the gambling type, you can stick a dollar in a slot machine or play a roll of pennies, the drinks will still be free.  Just flag down the girl, and as you wait you will be entertaining yourself as well as maybe making some extra cash so you can afford those drinks at the clubs.

On top of that there is a bar someplace in this city that has happy hour at every minute of the day.  My liver was aching just looking at the list of options.  I tried to mention as much as saw including ladies nights and open bar, but feel free to leave a comment if you think I am missing out on an important one.  Without loading your brain with too much information, I have chosen what I think are the best deals but trust me, it’s only the tip of the iceberg.

    Just to let you all know, and the author…you do not drink for free by putting $1 into a slot machine or by playing pennies. I am a cocktail waitress, have been for 9 years here, and that is a HUGE misconception! Just because you make it look like your gambling we know your just trying to get a “free” drink. We all know all the tricks in the book and it drives us CRAZY when you flag us down and order a drink. Drinks are complimentary (not free) to gamblers who are actually “gambling” !! And please don't walk around trying to find one of us and then say..” oh, I'm gonna be playing right here at this machine can you bring me…” No, we have a certain path in which we take orders, so once you are sitting down and playing at least a quarter or more every hand for at least 10 min. then you are deserving of a drink and then we will come around and ask you if you'd like one. Just a tip!

    Dear Annoyedwvegas,

    You are absolutely right. I should have made myself more clear instead of just using it as an intro. No, you will not get complimentary drinks for only gambling a dollar, I meant it as more as start of gambling, but once being a bartender a gaming spot, most places require that you play at a minimum of $20. I know how annoying it can be to deal with people, and I should have also mentioned to make sure you take care of your server. Nothing worse than serving complimentary drinks and not getting anything in return. And yes, gamblers need to be patient.

    Thank you for checking out my blog and giving your feedback. 🙂
