Memorial Day Weekend in Downtown Vegas on a Budget

Memorial Day Weekend is upon us, which means three days of no work and all play. Of course, having fun can get expensive, especially on a holiday weekend – not at Downtown Grand though. Guests can enjoy music, good food, and unlimited drinks in Downtown Las Vegas for little to no cost!

Best Brunch in Downtown Las Vegas

Freedom Beat offers a weekend brunch every Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., but for Memorial Day Weekend.

The brunch special is $20 for all-you-can-eat food including breakfast favorites like eggs and pancakes to Freedom Beat lunch favorites like the chicken biscuit and pot roast sliders. Add on bottomless mimosas or bloody marys (with a build your own bloody mary bar) for just $10 more.
