So a group of my college friends and I decided that by getting a cheap motel room, we'd be saving enough money to enjoy ourselves on the strip. We got a crazy good deal for 4 nights at Circus Circus for a little over 100 bucks. In retrospect it was still a good deal, however, if you jump on board for something dirt cheap you should make a few inquiries. The Circus Circus hotel is huge and we ended up very far away from the main entrance of the hotel, like a 15 minute walk, which is not cool when you are wearing heels. I suggest that before you make the final booking you try to find out exactly where your room is and look it up on their website where you will be staying, 15 minutes of...Read More

If breakfast is the most important meal of the day, then while in Vegas you should definitely try the Belg buffet out.First of all, other than being all-you-can-eat, this restaurant is nothing like your typical buffet. Deep inside the casino itself, it's easy to find not just because of the signs, but because of the large line wrapping around the corner. It's totally worth waiting for too. You pay $21 for breakfast, which is what I went to and up to $30 for dinner. (Cheapstake tip of the day: if you go RIGHT when one meal is ending you can catch some of the food for the second meal.)You are seated at your table that already has your silverware and plates set out for you on the tab...Read More

Yes, you want to go to this. Yes, you want to buy tickets in advance. Yes, you want to pay that little extra for closer seats. And yes, you will enjoy yourself.  You can buy tickets inside the Excalibur, and I would absolutely recommend buying tickets before you go to Vegas or the first day you get there because you want to get the close seats. Actually there is no bad seat in the house. But there are some awesome seats. The table seating is what to go for. The best actual seats are the first in each table because the guys will get up close and personal. The show is very personable, and the guys make it a very interactive show. They have women from the audience go up ...Read More

Tournament of Kings

Attraction | "Tournament of Kings (at the Excalibur Hotel)"

Who doesn't want to pay 60 bucks a pop to eat with their hands?Seriously though, tickets are about 60 bucks, and you get to choose from one of two daily showings. (Well technically nightly.) When I was there in April the times were around 8pm and 10pm. You can buy the tickets in the Excalibur hotel itself. There is a ticket counter inside on the main level. I recommend you buy at least one day in advance because during peak seasons and the weekends they sell out. Other than being on time, there isn't much of a reason to come early.The food is actually quite good. I was pleasantly surprised. I thought that making massive amounts of food like that would cause the food to be ...Read More
