Two for Tuesday - Double Whammy Edition

Last weekend's camping trip sapped all of my energy, but the thought of Vegas being only 24 days away has invigorated me. Even better was the "What the H?" segment on Norm MacDonald's Sports Show. "Gambling is an addiction, but it's the only addiction that can make you fabulously wealthy. Take that, crack cocaine!"

In honor of classic rock stations, I present to you a "Two for Tuesday."  One casino to visit, another to avoid.

BZA Confirms - Four Queens
In the heart of the Fremont Street Experience lies an unsung casino famous to BZA for its generous pit bosses. Only the most hardy man can proudly boast that he will be sharing a room with his good friend at the Four Queens. Wait, what? They are referring to the playing cards? The folks at the Royal Club are eager to hand out the free decks of cards, and with a little luck, a nice embroidered bag. Drinking enough Bushmill's and making enough Pai Gow errors can land you a free breakfast or two. Rooms cost less than a taxi back to your strip hotel, so you might as well stay the night. Four Queens is the third casino to make it to the BZA confirmation list.

 BZA Blacklist - Palace Station
Too many hops, skips, and jumps from downtown will land you at Palace Station. I stayed there on my second ever Vegas trip in 2001, and have never returned. If Florida State had defeated Oklahoma, I may have had fonder memories. I'll save my video poker money for a different Station casino. BZA Blacklisted.


  1. If your gonna stay in downtown Vegas, I'd say stick the four queens. Check out freemont street and all their crazy street entertainers. But don't make the mistake of visiting Glitter Gultch. That strip club is horrible! It's on Freemont Street and they'll try and entice you in with free cover charge and hopes of gorgeous women everywhere. What you get instead is a two drink minimum @ $10 per beer, and old wrinkled women with perfectly fake boobs. Not pleasant. Come to think about it I wasn't impresse with any strip club in Vegas, I'd avoid them all.

    I like to stay at Bill's Gambling Hall only because it is cheap, centrally located (shares the corner with ceasars, bellagio, and ballys), has cheap tables, and you really don't stay in the room that often so who cares if it isn't 5 star and you don't get a mint on your pillow.

    Other advice would be to check out all the pools on the strip during the summer. It is fantastic! Stay out of the water and hit on the ladies.


  2. True that, Bills is awesome. They even have electronic craps and a cheap hotdog cart! We are definitely hitting up again. Thanks Tank.
