LAS VEGAS (AP) - A Las Vegas casino cafe is rewarding patrons who can put away a 2-foot, 6-pound burrito with a most logical prize—free unlimited rides on a roller coaster that runs in both forward and reverse.
The offer comes with a caveat, though: Those who accept the challenge but can't finish "The Bomb" burrito have to take a picture with an extra small, pink T-shirt that says "Weenie."

The NASCAR Cafe at the Sahara Hotel & Casino began selling the cheese-and-guacamole slathered burrito on Thursday for $19.95.

Those who can finish the monstrous entree get it for free, along with two unlimited coaster passes and a T-shirt proclaiming they "Conquered the Bomb."

Relaxing over an ice cold beer the color of Windex (also known as Romulan Ale) while actors dressed as Ferengi and Klingons hover nearby may not be everyone's bag, but Star Trek and sci-fi fans will eat it up. The fare ranges from a Hamborger with Warp Toppings to Petrokian Sausage Jambalaya. Quark's also features Intergalactic Happy Hours featuring live music to go along with that endless loop of scenes from the various "Trek" shows.

Pete "Big Elvis" Vallee

When people think of Vegas, they think of Elvis. With a museum devoted to the King and impersonators everywhere in the city, there is one standout and that's Pete "Big Elvis" Vallee. The 400-pound performer's voice hits the mark, and even more intriguing, Vallee says he's the forgotten love child of Elvis himself and is willing to undergo DNA tests to prove it.

The romantic stylings of a 400 pound (my bet is that figure is at least 50 pounds light of reality) are hard to beat. Big Elvis performs daily at Bill's Gamblin' Hall and Saloon on Las Vegas Blvd. South (the old Barbary Coast). If you go, my advice is to order bottled beer only and have them bring the unopened bottle to your table and if you don't hear the little "hiss" when they open the bottle, don't drink it. Other than that, a great place - if your idea of great is a place with dirty shag carpet that still shows evidence of stains from various unknown activities.

I was just going to say "gamble," but I guess there other things you could do if you're a filthy degenerate...just kidding! (Also a little bit serious, you nasty boy.)
