Where to get a drink for under $20 in Las Vegas

Commonwealth on Fremont Street houses a secret speakeasy

Commonwealth on Fremont Street houses a secret speakeasy

Although it may seem as if Las Vegas is all about extravagance – you can pick up a cocktail here for $10,000 should you so wish – there are a vast array of drinking options on offer throughout the city, from dive bars to affordable cocktail establishments to glittering hotels. On or off the Strip, there’s a beverage with your name on it.

A 558 sq metre (6,000 sq ft) cocktail bar full of prohibition-era personality. It attracts a youngish crowd that come for the reasonably priced drinks (cocktails from $9) and regular dance parties. There’s a rooftop bar with a DJ and views of Fremont Street, and the basement houses a “secret” speakeasy, the Laundry Room, an intimate space that requires booking (by text message only).
525 E. Fremont St

Atomic Liquors
The oldest freestanding bar in Las Vegas – originally built in 1945 as a cafe. It’s said that a rooftop bar was added so that customers could watch the atomic bomb tests to the north of the city. It’s also the place where celebrities would come to unwind (think the Rat Pack, Barbra Streisand, Clint Eastwood), happily rubbing shoulders with construction workers. Atomic Liquors is swathed in history, but isn’t drowning in nostalgia – these days it’s known for its craft beer list and brew festivals, and cocktails. A recent kitchen expansion has added dining options.

Bound at the Cromwell features innovative cocktails

Bound at the Cromwell features innovative cocktails

Housed at the Cromwell, this is the epitome of a plush, sophisticated hotel bar. There’s no pretending that $17 for a cocktail is cheap, but they are designed by legendary mixologist Salvatore Calabrese, so the drinks are innovative as well as being top quality. Check out the breakfast martini, which substitutes vermouth for Cointreau, lemon juice and orange marmalade. Friday and Saturday evenings, 5pm to 6pm, is mixology hour, where hotel guests can try out cocktail samples at the bar.
The Cromwell, 3595 Las Vegas Blvd South

The Chandelier
The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas’ signature bar is also (apparently) the world’s largest chandelier – 2m beaded crystals drape down through three floors, housing multiple bars. The lower level is a lively casino bar, while the second has a cocktail list created by the Cosmopolitan’s chief mixologist Mariena Mercer (you could tackle a soylent green or fire-breathing dragon at $16 each). The upper-floor lounge has been renovated and shares the space with Eggslut, the gourmet egg restaurant.
The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, 3708 Las Vegas Blvd South

The Mandarin Bar: one of the best views of the city

The Mandarin Bar: one of the best views of the city

Mandarin Bar
Located on the 23rd floor of the hotel, the Mandarin Bar has one of the best views of the Strip. The cocktails, from Italian-born mixologist William Perbellini, just about sneak in at under 20 bucks (they start at $18), but there are pretty special — try their signature golden leaf, a mandarin version of a martini, as you take in the city’s glittering lights through the floor-to-ceiling windows.
Mandarin, 3752 Las Vegas Blvd South

The Barrymore
Set off the Strip in the boutique Royal Resort hotel, the chic and elegant Barrymore is a classic Vegas dining destination. The award-winning wine selection includes 50 bottles priced at $50 or less, while the range of whiskies, ports and beers is similarly vast and enticing. Cocktails will set you back $15 a pop, though there’s more affordable fare on offer during happy hour(s) every day from 5 to 7pm. Signature mix The Barrymore captures the sharp opulence of the restaurant in a single glass: Solerno, whiskey, orange bitters, zest and marmalade, and vermouth.

Rhumbar on the Strip, the perfect place for people watching

Rhumbar on the Strip, the perfect place for people watching

Unsurprisingly, rum is a big feature at this stylish bar (with around 40 to choose from), although its other charms include what has to be the best patio on the Strip and a top cigar service. There’s an old school Caribbean theme running through – including the cocktails, with the Rhumbar mojito and the mai tai both based on 1940s recipes. It’s the perfect place for people watching or kicking back and enjoying the live DJ.
The Mirage, 3400 Las Vegas Blvd South

The Dorsey
Sophisticated vibes and first-rate cocktails are what the Dorsey excels at. Expect opulent surroundings and a drinks menu designed by Sam Ross of New York City’s Attaboy (look out for the famous penicillin cocktail – a scotch, lemon, ginger, honey and Islay float concoction). For an intimate moment, grab a cosy spot by the fireplace in the library.
The Venetian, 3355 Las Vegas Blvd South

Parasol Down: secluded and relaxing

Parasol Down: secluded and relaxing

Parasol Up & Down
Two bars, one up and one down (a spiral escalator connects them), which revel in plush splendor and solid cocktails. Parasol Down is that rare thing in a Vegas bar world that thrives on energy – instead it’s secluded and relaxing. It boasts views of the Wynn’s 40-foot waterfall and Lake of Dreams, which features holographic shows and imagery. Meanwhile, Parasol Up, on the casino floor, is blessed with bright, natural light and a vantage point of the hotel. It has its own specially designed cocktail menu. Up or down, the choice is yours.
The Wynn, 3131 Las Vegas Blvd South

Generating PostScript for CUPS

programming, postscript, document structuring conventions

Generating PostScript for CUPS


This document describes how to generate PostScript output for CUPS and is largely based on the Adobe TechNote #5001: PostScript Language Document Structuring Conventions Specification Version 3.0. While CUPS can generally print any PostScript file, following the rules in the Adobe TechNote and this document will ensure that your PostScript output will work reliably.

Note: While PostScript is currently the de-facto standard print job file format/language for UNIX-based applications, it is slowly being phased out in favor of Adobe’s Portable Document Format (“PDF”) which offers many advantages over PostScript. macOS uses PDF as the primary print job file format and Linux is making the transition. Both PostScript and PDF are complex formats, and we highly recommend using high-level toolkits whenever possible to create your print jobs.

Anatomy of a PostScript File

PostScript files are ASCII text files starting with a header line (%!PS-Adobe-3.0) followed by a combination of comment lines starting with the percent sign (%) and PostScript code lines. The lines themselves should not exceed 255 characters to conform to the DSC. The following short PostScript file produces a box with a smiley face in it:

Embedding Printer Options

There are two main strategies for embedding printer options in PostScript files. The first is to list CUPS options using the %cupsJobTicket comment:

CUPS options apply to the entire job. To apply options to individual pages, use the %%IncludeFeature comment instead:

Embedding Fonts and Text

Always embed the fonts used by your print job, and for best performance embed the fonts and character encodings in the setup section of the PostScript file. Type 1 and Type 3 fonts are supported by all PostScript printers, while Type 42 (TrueType) and CID fonts are supported by most level 2 and all level 3 PostScript printers. Binary font files should always be converted to the corresponding ASCII (hex) encoding to avoid problems when printing over interfaces that do not support binary PostScript.

Embedding Images

The image operator should be used to embed images in PostScript files. Always use ASCII hex or Base-85 encoding for the image data to avoid problems when printing over interfaces that do not support binary PostScript. In most cases, the Base-85 encoding and compression filters can be used to embed images with very little, if any, increase in data size.

Help – Submission of PostScript


arXiv.org > help

PostScript is not an ideal submission format, for several reasons:

  • PostScript loses all contextual information.
  • PostScript loses portability by fixing the page size and resolution.
  • Many broken programs on PCs and Macs produce PostScript which does not conform to the Adobe specification.
  • Level II Postscript cannot always be printed on Level I printers.
  • Note: a PostScript file created from a TeX/LaTeX file will be rejected. There are good reasons for insisting on LaTeX source if it is available.

Unfortunately, many people are under the illusion that submitting PostScript is ideal because it can be printed directly or viewed on the screen. Authors who write in TeX should never submit PostScript, except for figure attachments (see discussion of benefits of TeX source).

If you use an old version of a word processor such as MS Word then PostScript may be a good option. However, PDF is usually better if your word processor supports it. If you use bitmapped fonts or you have some other resolution dependence, produce the PostScript file at 300 dpi for maximum portability.

You must submit any figures that go along with your paper. For PostScript submissions it is best to produce a single PostScript file that includes all figures. However, you may also submit figures in separate PostScript (ps, eps) files. Other file formats (PDF, JPEG, PNG, GIF. ) are not permitted.

Volume 11 Postscript Theater

Let’s Play a Card Game Postscript Theater

Fourth Generation Head (-@∀@): “Fwahahaha, did you see! The strongest ‘Celes’ card has been placed on the field. Meanwhile, your field has nothing but a single ‘’Damn Gigolo Lyle’ card… With this, you’re over, Third Generation Head!”

Third Generation Head (`・ω・´): “… Not yet! I can’t lose yet! It’s my turn! Draw!”

Third Generation Head ( ̄ー ̄)*Grin*: “Hmm, finally the card has come…”

Fourth Generation Head (;-@∀@): “W-what are you talking about! A comeback at this point is…”

Third Generation Head (`・ω・´): “Oh yes I can! I sacrifice all of Lyle’s future to the graveyard to summon the ‘Wives’! On top of that, I discard all of his shame and everything else to level up ‘Damn Gigolo Lyle’ to ‘mr. lyle’!”

Fourth Generation Head (;-@∀@): “S-say what!?”

Third Generation Head ( ゜∀゜): “It’s not over yet! On top of all that, I activate Lyle’s effect! By maximizing his Gigolo Constitution, the abilities of the Wives rise even further! And female enemy cards on the field receive a decrease in stats! Until your life points hit zero, I’ll keep on chipping…”

Fourth Generation Head (;-@∀@): “You can’t just summon a bunch of monsters in one turn, that’s against the rules! And wait, that effect doesn’t even work on Celes, you hear! You lose by default, father.”

Third Generation Head (・∀・): “…”

Fourth Generation Head *Kapow*∵(@ε(○=(゜∀゜ ) Third Generation Head: “I attack your life points directly!”

Fourth Generation Head ( @д@⊂彡☆))Д゜) *Thwap*: “That’s also against the rules.”

Mrs. Milleia, Part 1

Milleia (´∀`): “Uhaha, our profits in Beim are simply scrumptious (lolol), keep on wringing them out (lolol). ”

Fifth Generation Head ( ;∀;): (The Sixth sure disappeared at a good time. She used to be so honest… huh? Wait, was she always like this?)

Mrs. Milleia, Part 2

Fourth Generation Head (-@∀@): “Milleia-chan, were you like that? Were you putting on an act in front of the Sixth?”

Milleia 。・゜・(ノ∀`)・゜・。: “Is that how you see me? Grandfather, how cruel!”

Fourth Generation Head (;-@∀@): “Eh? Um… S-sorry!”

Seventh Generation Head |ω・`): (How shameful, Fourth… but the Sixth is also at fault for not seeing through that shady-as-all-hell personality.)

Mrs. Milleia, Part 3

Milleia ( ・∀・): “… Even like this, I’m a ‘kind elder sister character’ you know. I’ll just throw this out there, but that’s why the Jewel chose me in the first place. The other women were much worse than me, you hear.”

Milleia (・∀・): “Don’t forget it.”

Seventh Generation Head|д゜) *glance*: “It’s a lie. And elder sister? The Jewel definitely made a mistake with its personnel sel–”

Milleia ( ´∀`);y=ー(゜д゜)・∵.*Bang*: “Oh, Brod-kun, you just don’t learn, do you (lolol).”

Hahaha nice one, thanks for a bonus

Woah that card battle is interesting i kinda want it

That card game is imbalanced, no way is it going commercial without rebalancing. LOL

It’s time to dududududuel!

Wait, that was a Yugioh Abridged reference, wasn’t it?

Why yes, yes it was.

“Oh, Brod-kun, you just don’t learn, do you (lolol).”

He likes pain is what I would say…

But I think He is just a straight shooter.

I think Goddess Novem stats will be 3000atk & 2500def, Miranda is 2500atk & 2100def.

Novem killed sex, when on the field all players will discard character cards when drawn until she is removed.

the third use the wives o defeat celes hahahah that is one big of a card.

Lol…Sacrificing Lyle’s future to summon the wives… That’s gold…

If the third summon the ‘wives’, fourth should just activated ‘Novem’s scheme’ trap to taken control of all demi human wives…

Lol japanese text emojis are incredible, didn’t think you could make a face punch with them.

Don’t forget that there’s Celes in jewel so Milleia being sweetest might not be a lie.

thank for the update

mr. lyle is mythic rare status!

thanks for the chapter ^^

Milleia (・∀・)*is reading the comments*

I honestly don’t know what I find funnier…

– The foreshadowing on an upcoming mr. lyle meaning we get even better antics than we’ve seen before. Likely in regards to a loosely stated plan that Max let slip from his mouth a while ago in regards to “seducing some princesses out there”. I mean you can already count a certain unfortunate Lorphys princess as done already with the potential of including Zayin’s two in the picture as well.

– Max (/Sleigh) regarding Lyle’s current collection of wives as “monsters” and they haven’t even gotten near their full potential.

– Being reminded of how much the wives, and daughter(/in-law)s actually disliked one another.

– Milleia being Milleia, just as evil minded as Sleigh.

wow u’re really right. I didn’t see it the first time I read, but in the second time., you got me there

Thanks 4 the chapter!

LOL. They’re questioning Sixth version of Millea.

– I sacrifice all of Lyle’s future to the graveyard.

– I discard all of his shame and everything else to level up ‘Damn Gigolo Lyle’ to ‘mr. lyle’.

Well that how it was huh.

i attack your life points directly lol

Poor Seventh…I don’t think Milleia would hit her elders…but the Seventh is fair game and the only punching bag available left.

If Milleia is the ‘kindest’ out of all, hard to imagine how the other wives are lol.

Another volume ends and we’re getting near to the final battle against Celes. Maybe Lyle’s last stage of skill is [memories], He can extract memories from anything, living or not. Useful skill to learn the lost record of past wars against Agrissa and maybe uncovers some weird facts as well.

The duel part is so good

LOL at card battle.

Women are scary

Thanks for the chapter.

Yorai-kun are you continuing with the next volume of sevens right away, or translate one of other projects?

I’m not doing anything right now

How many children need to be sacrificed for a few more Sevens chapters?

Shouldn’t beg him for chapters, just let him do as he pleases!

His motivational power will come back soon enough.
