    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).

    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. Drinks include Mount Gay Mai Tai, Woodford Reserve Manhattan and Gentleman Jack Whiskey Sour.

    Caesars opened as 14-story, 680-room hotel-casino that broke the mold in Las Vegas, ushering in the era of lavish, themed resorts. The property has since expanded to more than 3,980 rooms.

    +1 on the book recommendation - it's a great read.

    I can't believe it's been 25 years since, as a 21 year old, I walked up to a $25 min blackjack and changed $100 in an attempt to win the Caesar's special edition $25 anniversary chip. My bankroll was probably $300 at the time so this was a huge deal. After being down $50 and almost passing out I did manage to get up $25 and walk with my chip.

    I haven't stayed here in many years but I always go there. I just love the old classic. Love the sportsbook. Cleopatra's Barge. Glad it's still going strong while virtually all of it's contemporaries are gone.

    Yeah, I'm not a CET fan at all but I'll always be fond of Caesars Palace. I make sure to hit it at least a couple of times a trip and love shooting craps with the old timer craps crews. One of the oldest places on the strip now but still going strong. This is the property that changed Vegas forever and I always get a kick out of going there.
