4-Letter Friday: FREE Fun in Las Vegas

Las Vegas is definitely back. I saw John Legend last week-end and it was if 2020 never happened.

The reason I moved to Las Vegas was for the great entertainment options…and because my dogs didn’t have to worry about fleas. But I discovered these options are expensive. It is my job, dear readers, to find fabulous FREE entertainment.

This is possible because, well, this is VEGAS!

Buckle up ’cause here we go!

Who Doesn’t Like Delicious FREE Food? (Summerlin)

I love cheese pizzas

Las Vegas, like New York City, seems to have a family-owned pizza shop in every strip shopping center. Most of the time these one-off restaurants serve fabulous fare…because they care.

One of those restaurants is Bonanno’s, a family-owned group of pizza restaurants which has nine restaurants through the valley. Today it is opening its second New York Pizza Kitchen on Hualapai.

This eatery is serving up FREE slices of a cheese or pepperoni pizza as long as they last. Starts at 3.

In the buy one, get one FREE category, head over to Texas Meltz. This week-end you can order two Houston sandwiches, and get one of the sandwiches FREE. The Houston piles smoked pulled pork, homemade barbecue sauce, grilled onions and melted cheese between two thick slabs of Texas toast.

You’ll save $10.99 plus tax.

Then there’s Tacotarian.

It’s a vegan taco shop featuring Mexican street food. That is not an oxymoron; that is English for delicious. The restaurant has 14 different taco combinations. Plus all the vegan Mexican street food combos.

All four stores in the valley will offer FREE tacos to the first 100 customers. They open at 11 so this can be breakfast or lunch.

Shop at the Iridescence Market (Downtown)

Tonight Fergusons Downtown hosts its first Iridescence Market. The reason you should attend is there are only 99 days until Christmas and you don’t want to wait until the last minute, do you?

The market features the 13 really edgy stores operating there. The idea is to shop small and shop local.

The market is FREE. The goods, of course, are not. I like to just stroll by and marvel since I grow peaches and make my brandy peach sauce as homemade Christmas gifts.

Starts at 6.

Rock Out to Music from the Early Aughts (Downtown)

If you are into heavy metal bands and have $129, head over to Resorts World for the Psycho Las Vegas festival. Enjoy the wailing guitars from 130 different bands.

Me, I prefer the more chill but still rockin’ music of the early 2000s. Tomorrow night Simple Plan, a Canadian band from Montreal, rocks the Third Street stage. Remember “I’m Just A Kid“? That’s one of their hits. The music is punky and catchy with a dash of angst.

The show is part of this summer’s Downtown Rocks concert series.

It’s kind of like being in a mosh pit because everyone is standing around an outside stage. You can always feel the music even if you sometimes can’t see.

The plan is simple: music starts at 9.

Have a great week-end, Las Vegas.

P.S. The Weeknd is here too. But not FREE.
