It’s almost time to leave for your flight, so you have two options: spend the remainder of your budget on the penny slots or leave Vegas with barbecue stains on your shirt. Go with the second choice and the stains will be worth it if they’re from this spot in the back of the Ellis Island Hotel and Casino. They only have chicken and baby back ribs, but both are basically perfect, and if you aren’t in a rush, go to the casino’s help desk because you can save $3 on your meal if you sign up for a player’s card. Which means you now have enough money for those penny slots - two birds with one stone.
