Good Things About Las Vegas
Before moving to Las Vegas, we lived in Columbia, SC. Before that, we lived in New Port Richey, FL. The 2 things those states have in common is that you have to pay a month charge for checking. Good news here in Vegas! Because you can cash a paycheck at a local casino (that is, not on the strip), checking here in Las Vegas is free! That is the major advantage of living here in Vegas.
Of course, we have the casinos and all types of entertainment, but who can afford to go to any show here in town? Ticket prices here are outrageous! Working in a casino, once in a while we get free tickets to shows if they are just starting out. That's the only way I can afford to go to a show. Five years ago I paid to see "O". Those tickets were $100 each!
The other good thing about Las Vegas, if you're a drunk this is the place to live. Free drinks as long as you're playing a slot machine or a table game. You can easily fake playing to get those free drinks. Of course, don't forget to tip. The waitresses have to pay for those "free" drinks. They live on their tips!
Okay, enough ramblings for one night. Not very organized, but it's good to be able to say a few words about where I live.
If you're wondering about the cat in the cup, I just thought he was cute and I would add it to my blog for today.
