    There are some great threads on this topic. Try searching for "recession deals".

      So many choices. Here are just three ideas.

      Level 107 Lounge, so-called because it is in the 107th floor of the Stratosphere Tower, has 1/2 price martinis drinks and ½ price appetizers from 4-7 PM. No charge for Tower admission and the spectacular views are also free.

      At P.J. Clarke’s in the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace, you can get freshly shucked oysters on the half shell for just a dollar every day of the week during happy hour from 2:45-6 pm. These are high-quality oysters served with an impressive set-up of lemon, cocktail sauce, horseradish, and a vinegar-and-shallot mignonette, and there’s no limit on how many you can order. And during happy hour, a draft Sam Adams, Blue Moon, or Coors Light is only $3.

      The Pub at Monte Carlo has happy hour 3-6 pm, Mon- Fr, excluding holidays and special events. They feature $1 wings, $1 sliders and 2 for 1 well drinks and selected domestic draft beers.

          Pampa's Brazilian looks good, in the Miracle Mile Shops. P.F. Changs has happy hour 7 days a week from 3 to 6pm

        Here is a hidden gem - La Scala, 1020 East Desert Inn. The restaurant has been around for a couple of decades, but deservedly got ignored on these boards in recent times because the menu had become rather tired, as did the execution. But they have been under new ownership, a couple from Argentina, for almost a year now, and things really have turned. While the full menu is now Chowhound-worthy, the Happy Hour specials are particularly good. Plenty of options - crab cakes, calamari served multiple ways, duck prosciutto, traditional prosciutto on crostini with a fig jam, a caprese salad, margherita pizza, etc., all for $5.95 or less, along with half-priced drinks (under Argentinian ownership, you can naturally find a good Malbec by the glass). And while elevating the cuisine, the "old school" vibe has been retained.

          I didn't even realize La Scala is still open. Sounds great.

          american fish at aria offers a daily happy hr 5-7pm, fancier food than most bars/lounges.

            Try Canaletto's in the Venetian. Very good pizza's, appetizers, and wine for $7. Domestic beers for $3. It's on the 2nd floor in 'St. Marks Square'. Interesting people watching too.
