Hey everybody! I made it to Las Vegas in one piece. Someone should’ve told me about the turbulence when landing at McCarren Airport! I think I left my complimentary bran muffin on the tarmac.
I can’t tell you where I’m staying, but I’d like to thank the “powers that be” for the lovely upgrade to a corner suite with awesome views of The Strip. I don’t know if I need two bathrooms and a hot tub overlooking “Sin City” but I’ll take it. Thank you! Also, thanks to “Dennis” and his wife for all their gracious hospitality.
Of course the worst thing happened to me the moment I walked into a casino. I won $300 in slots Why is that bad? Because I proceeded to lose $400 in blackjack. That’s why they call it gambling folks!
I’ve got a bunch of great interviews lined up – but I’m still hoping for a few more! I’m looking for the following people working right now Vegas to talk to…
Casino Cocktail Waitresses
Cigarette girls (they still have them here!)
If you can talk to me while I’m in town, please email me and we’ll set up an interview. Now I’m off to get some coffee, play the slots, and run off to my next interview! I’ll try sending some dispatches from the road. Wish me luck everyone!
Is this your first time in Vegas? Be sure to catch a few shows as well and Good Luck!
Glad you’re having fun. I’ve been loving all the updates lately. Keep up the good work!
The only hotel in Vegas that I know of with jacuzzis overlooking the strip is the Luxor. 😉
Go to Planet Hollywood, they have dancing girls behind the equally attractive dealers.
Next time you win, put half of it away! Only spend your original amount budgeted. This is how they get you!
And you didn’t call me for a tour? I’m not a tip worker, but could show you around.
Congrats on the upgrade.
Steve – have fun in Vegas. If you have a little time you should check out the Gun Store. They have an indoor range and rent weapons for you to shoot. Including… FULLY automatic assault weapons. Yes, that’s right. You can go full auto with a HK MP5, AR-15 (aka M-16), or even an Uzi.
Have fun in Vegas. BTW, the food in Vegas is now AWESOME. If you like Thai Food, you must check out the world famous Lotus of Siam. A little hole in the wall about a mile of the strip… it’s been favorably (RAVES) reviewed by the NY Times, LA Times, Gourmet, Bon Appetit and many others…
Vegas is awesome…I personally cannot wait to get back out there.
Do you know about the Liberacci Museum? It has a story — try to find it.
Just wanted to wish you luck, Waiter – with both the slots/games and your interviews! Enjoy Vegas – one of my favorite towns.
Check out ‘Aureole’ at the Mandalay Bay for at least one meal.
It’s one of those really over-the-top trendy places, but the food is good, and the wine list is enormous.
Worth checking out for sure.
Is Dennis’ wife named Air Force Amy?
I’m glad to see my profession added to your list, however, the appropriate terminology is ‘massage therapist’ rather than ‘masseuse.’ State/national testing & licensure is required in many places, and Nevada is a particularly difficult place to become licensed. Oh wait, maybe you really are looking for the illegal, sleezy ‘masseuses’! Never mind! Can’t wait to read about these adventures!
Glad to see you are updating more often. I really enjoy your work. Have fun in Vegas!
jpc I started wondering what you had against the well-known and long-standing word ‘masseuse’. Why would anyone want to replace a perfectly good word with a well-understood meaning for two words of questionable meaning? It means simply a female person who provides massage as a profession.
Then I worked it out – for some reason you have associated the term with something unpleasant and sordid. As far as I know the word doesn’t have that meaning and I don’t have any such association.
Does anyone else assume ‘masseuse’ refers to something disreputable?
Good luck Waiter!
As a fully qualified and registered Massage Therapist of 14 years I say YES, it does. It may seem a bit pedantic but those of us who are therapists do not like to be asked for happy endings or body slides while treating. It is demeaning to me as a professional to have some guy ask me to get him off after a therapeutic massage performed in a reputable clinic (unfortunately it does happen). So while the road to educating the general public is long, we have to start somewhere, and pointing out the difference on a widely read blog is a start.
PS. Love your work Waiter, have read all your archives and congratulate you on your well earned success.
Thaleia: what is a “body slide”?
I think a “Body Slide” (from now on to be referred to as “B.S.”) is when the provider of the service would be expected to touch the receiver with other parts of his or her body than required to perform the (therapeutic) massage.
You’re supposed to LOSE at slots and WIN at blackjack. How’d you manage to get it backwards?
Over the last couple of decades, all professions seem to want jazz up their job title even though the old word was perfectly fine. First, it was sanitation engineers. Then, it was flight attendants. Now, it’s massage therapists. My personal favorite was when P.E. majors became Kinesiology majors. Stop taking yourselves so seriously, people.
you MUST go see KA at MGM. It’s a cirque show..absolutely amazing!
God I hate flying into Vegas. First time, someones Rosary flew out of someones hands and into my lap. Now that’s turbulence!
I guess I was just lucky flying into Vegas, because I don’t ever remember any turbulence.
Good luck and sleep well.
For all you Massage Therapist out there; I don’t think people who want B.S. or “happy endings” would go to a MT in Vegas, since prostitution is legal and why take the chance with a MT when they can get the real thing with a prostitute?
velvet… prostitution is most definitely NOT legal in las vegas. our neighboring county, yes. but not HERE. watch it, or you’ll find yourself in jail real quick.
Greetings waiters of Waiterrant.net!
I have been perusing through the many blogs of this site and may i say that “Viva las Vegas” is certainly the best! So tell me, have you guys heard about Ideabounty?
Well, Idea Bounty is a crowdsourcing platform that provides a space for brands to offer open briefs to consumers who can respond to the brief and stand to claim a bounty for the best idea as chosen by the brand. At the moment we have an awesome brief from Red Bull with a healthy bounty of $5000 up for grabs for the person who can come up with the best idea for a new way to drink Red Bull – check it out here http://www.ideabounty.com/latest
I thought this would be something you and your readers might be interested in – please check out the brief and if you would like any more information just shout!
found this on BBC News today – thought you might be interested….the tipping war continues.
Get bent Matt. Take your stupid webscam elsewhere.
God I hate when this crap infects decent blogs.
I can’t say I’ve ever been to Vegas. But I am told that it is one of the most disability-friendly cities. If this is indeed true, kudos to them! Have fun and be careful!
Get away from the strip and take a ride to Red Rock and hike a little while. Well worth it. Gorgeous!
I hate to disappoint you Velvet, but prostitution is definitely legal here in Sydney Australia, and yet they still ask! I don’t even want to get into their heads, but can only guess that getting a BS or a happy ending from a straight therapist is somewhat more thrilling, kind of like doing it with a librarian.
being that you are an ex-employee of Lonestar, I beg you to drop into Del Frisco’s DoubleEagle Steakhouse on Paradise and Flamingo. The super-upscale, snotty older brother of Lonestar… I think you’ll be rather impressed.
Just finished Waiter Rant. I laughed so much. Thanks you. I can’t wait for more of your work. Well done!
Treasure Island? We usually get their petite suite: two bathrooms and one with jacuzzi tub.
OMG You were in Vegas the same time I was there! I left all my money there; my best advice is to walk away when ahead! Don’t think you can “win it back”. Have fun and don’t drink too much!

Be sure to check out Ellis Island while you’re there. It’s a locals/industry hangout… they make a damn good steak…

I laughed til I cried…and then I cried because I’m sure I split in half at some point. Great read…but you know that already.
