This place does it right! A sandwich plus a low gravity beer is only 7 bucks. Stay for happy hour and get a 9% ABV beer for $4.75. WOW!
Mead is honey wine. It is the oldest fermented beverage. If you buy mead at the liquor store, expect to pay at least 56 cents per ounce. I made it for 50 cents per glass! Here is the recipe I used.
It started bubbling this morning! That means the sugars are being eaten and turned into alcohol and carbon dioxide.
This is what I learned from my very first Vegas trip.
Stay at a hotel north of the strip. A short walk or monorail ride can get you to the strip in minutes. We booked a room at the Westgate.
Avoid all the come-ons. The Westgate was going to give us a free meal and a show for sitting thru a 90 minute time sharing presentation. Several artists were giving away their music. In exchange for an autographed CD, they wanted a donation.
Bring a cooler filled with beverages and sandwiches. You get complimentary beverages while you gamble, but not while you are in your room. And don't expect a microwave oven in your room either.
Seek out smaller/local casinos like Ellis Island and Brewery. Beer was 2 pints for $4.50 and breakfast is $4.
Hit this liquor store across from Bally's on Flamingo Boulevard for cheap spirits!
