The Casino Royale on The Strip, across from the Mirage and roughly next to Denny's, do $1 bottles of beer and $1 Marguaritas. That's cheaper than cans and you get to lob a few bucks on the roulette and try and double your cash on red&black.

It's real Old world Vegas, not the swanky new look. A few spots on Fremont street in Downtown Vegas do buffet deals and drink deals too. 

Don't get ripped off by the swanky new spots like The Wynn, Encore, Bellagio etc.

There's a horse racing machine in the MGM that's quite popular, it's 25c a bet and similar enough to the ones you find in amusements here. The little plastic horses bob along and I think you bet on 1st & 2nd. Get yourself a $10 roll of quarters, if you can get a seat at the machine plonk you arse down, bet slowly on the game and order drinks off the waitresses that come along. Make sure you tip them $1-$2 every time you get a drink and they'll come back. I've spent many hours sitting at that machine getting rat arsed for next to nothing.

What hotel are you in?
There are a few bars down near the bottom of the strip, beside New York New York and the Irish bar 9 fine Irishmen, that have good happy hours in the evening. We were there around 11-12 at night and the happy hour was on.
Restaurant in the Cosmopolitan hotel called the Wicked Spoon that does bottomless champagne for 17 dollars for breakfast/lunch.
 
 
 
Staying in the MGM Grand.  Cheers for the heads up.

Assuming you were walking at a pace of 10 minutes per kilometer, a 75km walk would take you 12.5 hours. Now according to yourself you were stopping in multiple pubs on the way there (although I'm not sure why a main road between two cities would be littered with pubs, unless you took the back roads of course) so that would have increased your journey time. Say you stayed an average of 20 minutes in each pub and you called into 5 pubs. That's another 1 hour 40 minutes on to your journey. That's a grand total of 14 hours 10 minutes. Of course once you got there you then had to get back! Did you walk back too? Are you sure you aren't confusing this with a dream?

Like a junior cert maths question

A man on the internet boasts that he walked 75km from one city to another whilst also milling pints in each pub along the route. He travels the first half of the journey at 21km/hr and the second half at the rate of 17km/hr. Find the total journey time.

Having been to Poland, I knew it was a short train ride but a long walk. I guessed sixty miles and was a little out. When you hear someone profess tohaving a lovely day walking sixty miles, you become intrigued!
