on a meal.
Really depends on what is included in the meal. I am guessing that wine isn't included since they offer a "diet" version. Well, that is, unless they only take the wine and desert away and that then becomes the "diet" version.... :tng:
Here in Las Vegas at Aureole's in Mandalay Bay, a three-course prix fixe goes for $90 per person. I know there are some much more. I think Daniel's in New York City was $150.00, but that might have included wine. I know they had a prix fixe for $250 per person that include wine by the glass and another that was "Market Price" by the bottle.
But I like In-N-Out.
depends on the occasion.
I'd do it once just to say I experienced it...
...much the same reason I dumped $100 in to one pull in one of the giant slot machines in vegas. (Note: I wasn't dumb enough to go with money I didn't plan on losing..)
Exactly. The people that come here and have the most fun are the ones that plan ahead, set a certain amount aside for losses (whatever is reasonable and not a burden - fun money!) and then schedule activities around losing their money (they don't build these places on winners).
I went with $3000, and came home with $16, but sure as hell had a blast doing it. I don't play quarter slots, either. $5 and $10 machines, with a few $25 machines thrown in for good measure.. Managed to play for 7 days straight.. So, won some, gave it back, won some, gave it back, and did some shopping, too..
(Gotta love comps - didn't pay a dime for food, or drink, all week).
That's the way to do it!
I have a lot of Asian clients that come here for conventions. They all love to gamgle, so I always tell em, when you leave, ask em to comp your room based on your play. Nearly all of em get it comp'd and if they are own their business they like it and if they are on the company nickle, they usually really like it cuz they get paid on per diem during conventions and so in a sense they get to pocket the cost of the room and they can make money that way too. The hotels will give you a bill and then reverse the charges! :tng:
I spent a week at Caesars palace several years ago, on business.
Since I wasn't there to play I just hung-out and watched.
The thing that stuck out the most was the Brinks trucks.
They come in and take bags of money and leave.
I never saw them BRING any money in...
The did not build Las Vegas on the pocketbooks of WINNERS!!!!!
