Monday Link – The 10 Biggest Mistakes to Avoid in Las Vegas

Every Monday – The Monday Link

Today’s link looks west to the Mecca of Gambling, Las Vegas, Nevada.

Las Vegas has seen more and more visitors this year, but people aren’t spending as much in Sin City, especially when it comes to gambling.  Rumor has it MGM & Caesars Entertainment are looking at decreases in the 3rd and 4th quarters.  Gee, could “nickel & diming” their patrons be catching up with them? Let’s see, there are those resort fees, parking fees, CNF fees, fees, fees, fees?

Today’s link is especially for those Vegas visitors who haven’t visited in a while, or new to a Vegas vacation. But this list is good for all of us to review – even those Vegas nerds.

Ten Things I Never Knew About Las Vegas Until I Ran a High-Roller Suite – The Monday Link

Every Monday is “The Monday Link”


Have you always wondered what life in the high-roller suites was like?  I have…….I could only imagine what it would be like to betting thousands of dollars on one hand of anything, with a dealer, butler, and host by my side.  My only extra request might be to have all 31 flavors of Baskin & Robbins’ ice cream – or all of Ben & Jerry’s.  Not much to request, right?

I had different plans for today’s link, but when I saw this on Twitter, I had to share it.  Brandon Presser wrote this article for Bloomberg, and he describes his experience as “A stint managing premier client relations at the Cosmopolitan revealed secrets that probably should stay in Vegas.”  I couldn’t stop reading it!

This is for all my podcasting friends who are Las Vegas nerds like me. After reading this article, I’m convinced that some things should definitely stay in Vegas. 

Real requests like a chinchilla-fur hammock, Louis XIII cognac, priced at $4,300 a bottle, or sending butlers to such glamorous places as In-N-Out Burger and Target. It’s a fascinating read. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
