Free Drinks anymore?

I had heard from one source that the strip casinos are not giving out as many free drinks as they once did. This is when playing both tables games and slots. Is it because the casinos are getting stingy or the fact that they have layed off the drink runners. What are your thoughts?

You heard wrong. You can still get just as many free drinks at the slots and tables with very few exceptions (Wynn VP bar).

It does seem like it's worse than a few year ago but I think this is mainly because there are less cocktail waitresses covering more area so it just takes longer for them to make their rounds. From my experience, tables almost always have constant service but if you are in the wrong slot bank you may never see a cocktail waitress.

Go down to La Bayou in old town. They have a COCKTAIL button on the machine. They will have your first drink to you BEFORE you sit down and a re-fill before you insert your money.

I done heard from one source that space aliens use the light from the Luxor as a landing guide. Is it because Area 51 has "layed" off ET flight directors? What are your thoughts?

We've just left Las Vegas (our first trip) gambled mainly in the Paris and we couldn't believe how often the waitress came around, probably about every 15 mins - and we were playing the penny slots.

I think we tip reasonably well but it can't just be because of that as everyone around us was getting the same service. Marvellous.

I ordered a Miami Vice at the IP, was told I had to be Platinum or better. No problem getting a Pina Colada or a beer though.

Stayed at CP, drink service was awesome, and the Miami Vice's were exceptional.
