    Sorry if this has already been posted, but looks like a nice deal if you wanna drink a lot, but not gamble:

    That is why I don't usually think too much of these all you can drink in two hour deals, as you spend an hour of it queuing up at the bar waiting to be served.

    For $5 a beer, you would need to have 5 beers in two hours to break even, and that's pushing it for me.

    I would get a brain freeze drinking frozen margaritas, I'd have to go with rocks margaritas. Looks like martinis are not "single liquor well brand liquors" and would not be included. Long Island Iced Teas are probably pre-mixed, but one of the fastest ways to go from zero to hammered in two hours.

    I don't normally do all-you-can-drink specials, but I think I could make this one pay off. I'm a fast drinker (not in a "let's get drunk fast" way like in college - just because I'm a fast drinker. Eater too) I could easily drink 5 beers or 5 glasses of wine in an hour, not to mention 2. Couldn't do it with pre-made frozen drinks though.

    Those pre-made Margaritas that they used to have at the Westward Ho were so tame that I could probably have gone through 5 in two hours and still be able to stand. :)

    my friend sent me this flyer on facebook, and i am excited to give it a try. i can easily drink 5 drinks in a hour, but the problem is being served 5 drinks in an hour. i always have trouble getting enough drinks during all you can drink specials.

    Might just try this out. I used to like that Amber beer they brewed on tap, but I don't think they have that any more. I mean it wasn't anything to rave about, but it was better than landshark or any of those Adjunct Lagers

    They should take a lesson from a couple bartenders from this one bar back in my college days ... They used to have a "Beer Bust" (on Monday, of all things) where it was AYCD Schaefer for some ridiculously low price. It was interesting to watch, they would never turn the tap off hardly ever. One guy would hand the other the glasses and he would fill them and set them up on the bar. They had it down to a science and didn't spill that much. :)

    Two hours of all-you-can-drink LIITs is a fast way to go from zero to ER.

    It's not the amount (or lack) of alcohol - it's the frozen (can't drink fast) and the syrupy aftertaste from the mix. Actually gives my husband a sore throat. I just don't like to drink too many of them.

    I'm not much a fan of time-limited all you can drink. You'd get really annoyed if you couldn't get refills quick enough, and I don't like having my drinking pace dictated by anything but whether I feel like having a drink.

    This one doesn't have that notation that it is strictly for one person. I assume that it is intended that way but could they really check? My wife and I like to share Margaritas and if we shared for the two hours I wonder if they would catch us. We would easily do well for the money.

    Most of the time we are gambling and getting free drinks...but I think we will try this one night of our stay, if it is still in effect in August. Margaritaville is a fun ambiance, and that's a good time of day for us to do some serious-yet-fun drinking. :beer:

    I think the word "you" in the phrase "all you can drink" is singular. If it were plural, it would have read "youse". They probably give you a wristband when you choose this option.

    Nah that one is for amateurs, try this at the Stratosphere


    ,Happy Hour is outrageous as you can drink for $19.99 for four hours, from 5 to 9. Watch a game on one of the many screens around the bar and have a few drinks. One of those hidden deals that are hard to find in Las Vegas.
