We Went To Vegas With $50 And Had To Make It Last An Entire Day

Having a blast in the city of sin never looked so cheap!

If you've ever been to Las Vegas, you know it's damn near impossible to ball out on a budget.

Most people end up (over)spending a lot of money on a Vegas trip.

So Selorm and Eli hit the road to Vegas with a whopping $50 each to see if they could stretch it out over a 24-hour period.

The plan was to go to brunch, take in a show, grab dinner, and party like rock stars at the club. Pretty high bar, right?

For brunch, they hit up Red Rock Casino Resort and Spa, where they scored a coupon that got them a breakfast buffet for only $7! Not bad.

Two plates each were absolutely required, and the food was dee-lish.

Next on their Vegas itinerary was to do something fun and more local. Eli had just the place in mind with the Pinball Hall of Fame Museum!

Did you know pinball machines have been illegal in the U.S. for over 30 years? Yeah, we didn't either.

Selorm and Eli had a freakin' blast playing with the pinball machines, and it only set them back $1.75! Whaaaaat!

"No! You know, when it goes down the side thing. It's just, like, it's not fair!"

Once they got their pinball fix, they heard Groupon was a great place to try to find a Las Vegas show at a discount price.

And guess what? They found tickets to the Nathan Burton Comedy Magic Show for only $12.50. Not bad at all.

Not only did they thoroughly enjoy the magic show, but a familiar face was brought up to the stage to give Nathan a hand with his straightjacket routine.

The last thing on their "to do" list was to hit up a nightclub. Wait. Go to a club? In Vegas? On a budget? Good luck!

They got some excellent advice from Selorm's friend on how to make that happen...with a discount. Score!

It was time to suit up. Selorm managed to get them into a club with VIP service for a $10 tip. No joke.

Selorm was even treated to a free dinner, while Eli sadly ate a couple of tacos at Tacos El Gordo. It's all good, though. Those tacos looked bomb!

But, most importantly, they both got to party like rock stars at the club with bottle service and all, just like the promoter promised Selorm.

Mission accomplished!

So how did they do? Were they actually able to party in Vegas for a whole 24 hours with $50 each?

You bet your sweet little ass they did. Great job, guys!
