A mix of room, food and drink specials and some other stuff. I'll take this moment also to recommend the book " Grandissimo: The First Emperor of Las Vegas: How Jay Sarno Won a Casino Empire, Lost It, and Inspired Modern Las Vegas" Terrific book on how Sarno conceived and built Caesars (and Circus Circus). http://lasvegassun.com/news/2016/jun/21/caesars-palace-set-turn-50-offers-summer-specials/ The countdown is on for Caesars Palace's 50th birthday. The resort recently kicked off its "Summer of Caesars" set of events, attractions and deals that will culminate in a golden anniversary celebration on Aug. 5. Among the highlights: • Independence Day Weekend fireworks display and block party, featuring a 13 1/2-minute fireworks display at 9 p.m. July 3 above the hotel's newly renovated Julius Tower. From July 1 to July 3, the resort will offer live music, food specials, speciality cocktails and more in the Roman Plaza and Spanish Steps area outside of the hotel and casino. • A self-guided walking tour of the property, which debuted Monday and will remain available throughout the summer. The tour also features a historical photo exhibit and floor markers guiding participants to the resort's "Five Lucky Spots" to touch for good luck. • Birthday special. Guests turning 50 in 2016 can receive a $50 food and beverage credit during their stay. The promotion is available only to members of Caesars' Total Rewards loyalty program. • Room packages. The resort is offering four deals on rooms. Visit caesars.com/CP50 for more details. • Food deals. Examples include a three-course prix-fixe menu at Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill for $50, a prime rib special from 5-7 p.m. Monday through Thursday at Old Homestead steakhouse for $50, a signature bento box at the Nobu Restaurant and Lounge for $50, two slices of pizza and a beer for $19.66 at Di Fara Pizza and Maine lobster for $19.66 a pound from 4-6 p.m. Monday through Thursday at Beijing Noodle No. 9. • Throwback cocktails at Seahorse Lounge, Lobby Bar and Montecristo Cigar Bar.
