Where to Eat and Drink for Cheap in Las Vegas!

Where to Eat and Drink for Cheap in Las Vegas!

IMG08491-20131113-1753

Welcome to Las Vegas (copyright 2013 JoshWillTravel)

Las Vegas, Nevada!
FOOD AND BEVERAGE

Are you hungry? Are you thirsty?
Do you want to eat? Do you want to drink?
Back in the day, it was all about “butts in the seats”
as one Pit Boss at Caesars Palace used to say to us.
Rooms, Food, Drinks, Cigars, Entertainment, ALL OF IT WAS COMPED!
It was all about GAMBLING and MONEY ON THE TABLE (or in the slot machine).
The casino winnings paid for everything, and the customer (PLAYER) was king!
And even if you lost your entire bankroll, you had a great time in Las Vegas.
And now, they “nickel and dime” you everywhere. Resort Fees. Paid Parking.
Entertainment Fees and Taxes. Upgrade Fees. Pool Fees. Reservation Fees.
AND WHAT THE FUCK IS THE DEAL WITH THE $20.00+ COCKTAILS?
Room rates fluctuate like airline ticket prices, and aggregators sell the leftovers.

And back in the day, the ALL-YOU-CAN-EAT Buffet, and $1.99 Steak & Eggs,
were draws to bring people into the casino and keep the players fed and inside.
But now Las Vegas is an International Dining Mecca! Cheap eats are hard to find.
FOOD and BEVERAGE is a major expense for any Las Vegas vacation.
It’s hard to find good food at good prices, but inexpensive dining options
outside the food court and not “fast food” are all around town!

NOTE: The Pricing and Hours of Operation may vary,
and are alway subject to change at any time for any reason.
Always check to see if the location is open, if a reservation is required,
(their pandemic requirements), and confirm the pricing ahead of time!
And then you won’t be surprised.

Additionally, due to the COVID-19 Pandemic,
some restaurants and bars are CLOSING PERMANENTLY!
We removed two from this list today because they just went out of business.

IF YOU CAN’T AFFORD TO TIP RIGHT,
YOU CAN’T AFFORD TO DRINK IN A BAR
OR EAT IN A RESTAURANT!

Go to a Liquor or Convenience Store
and eat and drink in your hotel room.

NOTE: Walgreens, CVS, and ABC Stores $2.00 – $5.00 Beer
are much cheaper than the hotel stores and gift shops.
You can find all kinds of prepackage food and snacks
(and more things you may need),
along with cheap beer, wine, booze, and bottled water,
at the Chain Stores on The Strip and Downtown.

TIP: Get a hotel/motel room with a kitchen or kitchenette!
You can bring food with you or buy food at a market or store.
Prepare your own meals/snacks and save money on food.
Request a refrigerator for your Hotel room if not provided, and say you
have “special diet requirements” to avoid an additional “refrigerator fee”
(kosher, diabetic, vegan, etc., and the fee to avoid is usually $25.00).

It’s COFFEE TIME AGAIN!

Good Morning!
It’s COFFEE TIME AGAIN!

“Wake up and smell the coffee.”
We LOVE coffee! Any time of day.
Drink it hot, warm, cold, or iced!

107384310_3819572158069322_6782448052720653619_o

Cafephile: The word “cafe” derives from coffee and the suffix “phile” means showing of fondness – therefore, a Cafephile is one who is fond of, or loves coffee very much.

Take another Break with us,
Read this Blog about Coffee and Have A Hot Cup of Joe!
And read our previous Blog Posts about COFFEE!

“Sleep is a weak substitute for coffee.”
131335714_4300931159933417_1101649638698411941_n

Coffee is a brewed drink prepared from roasted coffee beans,
which are the seeds of berries from the Coffea plant.

176524709_10220313662291429_7838274507670830493_n

Espresso is a type of coffee made using high water pressure and finely ground beans to produce a small, concentrated shot of brewed coffee.
Espresso is a coffee-brewing method of Italian origin, in which a small amount of nearly boiling water (about 190°F) is forced under 9–10 bars of pressure through finely-ground coffee beans.

193678331_4821246847901843_9190736391558185761_n

Espresso is coffee brewed under pressure and requires a dark roast with a fine grind.
When a shot of espresso is pulled, all of the components of the crushed coffee beans are extracted by the percolation of hot water through tightly packed and finely ground coffee.

181735401_4714358338590695_4819122047946355907_n

8-ounces = 1 cup.
The exception is the standard (hot) mug-served cup of coffee measuring 6-ounces.
Today’s “cup” of coffee in the US is usually 4-ounces brewed using 5-ounces of water.

176835557_10220294908582598_8325470323999400457_n

People consume an estimated 2.25 BILLION cups of coffee PER DAY worldwide.

Coffee improves many brain functions including memory, mood, vigilance, energy levels, reaction times and other general mental functions.

Caffeine blocks the inhibitory neurotransmitter adenosine, so the amount of other neurotransmitters (norepinephrine and dopamine) increases, leading to the enhanced firing of neurons in the human brain (a stimulant effect).

152322021_4493438327349365_8315617266632171651_n

“It is “generally safe” for most people to consume three to four cups of coffee per day,
and that doing so may actually reduce the risk of certain health conditions.”

We are not a medical professional. We just LOVE coffee.
Overwhelming evidence has shown that when consumed in moderation (400mg of caffeine per day) four cups of coffee are safe for the general population. Federal dietary guidelines suggest three to five 8-ounce cups of coffee per day (up to 400 milligrams of caffeine) can be a part of a healthy diet.

94640151_3616574528369087_6029142800837115904_n

SCIENCE!
Coffee contains nutrients, including riboflavin (B-2), niacin (B-3), pantothenic acid (B-5) magnesium, potassium, manganese, and various phenolic compounds (polyphenols are antioxidants).

52993365_2703169436376272_8446474498105933824_o

Coffee can reduce the risk of liver cancer, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, and cirrhosis.
Italian researchers found coffee consumption lowers the risk of liver cancer by ~40%.
Coffee may help protect against type 2 diabetes.
Coffee may also lower the risk of gallstone disease
Caffeine may help prevent Parkinson’s disease.

Coffee in moderation (two 8-ounce servings per day) may protect against heart failure and may lower the risk of heart disease and stroke.

Several studies show coffee drinkers have up to a 65% lower risk of Alzheimer’s disease.

131146838_10226922962079472_9042637978380248701_n

Black coffee (without milk/cream) is very low in calories: only ~2 calories.
Of course adding milk, cream or sugar will increase the calories in the drink.

“Coffee is the most important meal of the day.”

Caffeine can improve mental performance:
focus, alertness, attention and concentration.
Caffeine in coffee is a mild stimulant for the CNS (central nervous system).
It is the best mood-lifting agent due to the antioxidants
and blocks mood-depressing chemicals in the brain.
And it has been associated with a lessened risk of depression.
Caffeine consumption may be associated
with an increase in the availability of dopamine receptors in the brain
Drinking at least two cups of coffee per day
promotes the greatest mental health benefits.

Barista: How do you take your coffee?
Us: Very, very seriously.

Q: How did the hipster burn his tongue?
A: He drank his coffee before it was cool.

Caffeine can boost metabolic rate by 3–11% and can increase fat burning
by as much as 10% in obese individuals and 29% in lean people.
Caffeine can improve physical performance by 11–12%, on average,
and it increases adrenaline levels and the release of fatty acids from fat tissues.

169956504_10220162351828762_1314863082719648580_n

Coffee has a lot of nicknames:
java, joe, dirt, mud, brew, cuppa, daily grind, morning jolt,
lifeblood, tar, rocket fuel, pick-me-up, and even worm dirt.

“Why walk when you can stagger? Why stagger when you can crawl?…
Why crawl when you can block the sidewalk?”
Why crawl when you can slither to the bar?
“Why crawl when you can clutch at the grass to keep from falling off the Earth?”
“We can’t help the way you look…but we can help the way you feel!”

NOTE: Pre-Northern Renaissance Faire in 1987, we worked mobile security during the week and our good friend Dave Coker was rebuilding the alestands that had been left to rot after the Living History Centre ran out of money for teardown in 1986. We had too much fun that summer! May his memory be blessing!

Irish Coffee
is a cocktail made with hot coffee, Irish whiskey, cream and sugar.
Ingredients:
1-1/3 oz (2 parts) Irish whiskey
1 oz (1½ parts) fresh cream
2-2/3 oz (4 parts) hot coffee
1 teaspoon of Brown sugar (or to taste)
Shaved, powdered, or liquid chocolate for garnish (optional)
Directions:
Make the coffee. Heat the coffee, whiskey and sugar; but do not boil.
Pour into a glass or coffee cup, stir, and top with (whipped) cream.
Garnish with chocolate (optional). Serve hot.

In a footed glass mug, add whiskey (Jameson’s is recommended but any good Irish whisky will do), add the brown sugar and stir, warm it slightly (do not boil), and then ignite the vapors. This will caramelize the sugar as well as warm the mug. Blow out the flame after about ten seconds and then fill the mug with a strong coffee. Leave a finger’s width of space at the top, add heavy whipped cream by laying the cream over the back of a spoon, so it floats on top.
NOTE: Caramelizing the sugar will make the drink taste much better!

White Russian (aka “a caucasian, man”)

mqdefault

“Do I drink White Russians all the time? …
The reason it was White Russians is you could have a lot more fun
with a White Russian than you can with say, a vodka soda.”
– Jeff Dowd, the real Dude inspiration

White Russian

The traditional cocktail known as a Black Russian first appeared in 1949.
The drink becomes a White Russian – just add fresh cream or half and half.
Neither drink has any known Russian origin.
Both drinks are named for the vodka that is the primary liquor ingredient.

The White Russian was popularized by Jeffrey ‘The Dude’ Lebowski
(aka actor Jeff Bridges), in the Coen Brothers’ 1998 film “The Big Lebowski”
but the drink has been around since the mid 1960’s.

NOTE: Use an 80-proof vodka, mix a White Russian according to the recipe,
and it would be approximately 24 percent Alcohol by Volume (or 48 proof).
