June 30, 1985 | CHARLES C. KEELY JR., Writer Charles C. Keely Jr. died unexpectedly last month at age 51.
The Strip's shimmering lights blink out their competitive come-ons. And they aren't pushing crap tables or slots. "Prime Rib Dinner, $4.95," beckons the Frontier; "99-cent Breakfast," shouts a Lindy's Deli sign; "Free buffet with round-trip airline tickets," promises the Sands. Gambling may be Las Vegas' raison d'etre, but even the low rollers have got to eat.

WASHINGTON -- Consumer confidence unexpectedly dipped this month after reaching its highest point in more than five years in May, but continued to show Americans feeling relatively good about the state of the economy, according to a leading private barometer. The preliminary reading from Thompson Reuters and the University of Michigan fell to 82.7 from last month's 84.5, Reuters said Friday. Analysts had expected the figure to hold steady. But consumers were less optimistic about their job prospects and expected to see smaller gains in home values, the survey's director, Richard Curtin, told Reuters.

Familiar restaurant names are starting to show up in the parade of brightly painted food trucks jostling for customers. In Los Angeles, the venerable Canter's Deli, a fixture on Fairfax Avenue since 1931, is now also serving potato pancakes and matzo-ball soup from a truck. The upscale Border Grill restaurants have two trucks, serving gourmet tamales in paper cups so they're convenient for pedestrians to eat. For dessert, there's the Sprinkles Cupcakes chain, which added a truck to its 11 brick-and-mortar locations last year.

NO one's ever had trouble finding a functional drinking establishment off-Strip in Las Vegas; dives are tucked everywhere east and west of the mega-wattage main drag. What's harder is finding a place that's not a den of sallow-eyed souls staring into video poker screens like sloshed air traffic controllers. For anyone wanting something more, bars in Vegas are a bad-odds gamble, typically as tired and cliched as they are desperate.

No doubt about it. The top of the Vegas food chain is the domain of high rollers. But here's a secret: You don't have to spend big to eat big in this town. You can sample Guy Savoy's legendary artichoke truffle soup for just a few dollars, or take in the million-dollar view at Mix for the price of a cocktail. Stray off the Strip and head to the places the famous chefs hit when they're off duty -- including one of the country's best Thai restaurants. Here's a weekend's worth of fine dining for the every roller: In a nondescript mall just east of the Strip, Lotus of Siam serves up the best northern Thai food on the West Coast and probably in the country.
