The IRS has estimated that a cocktail waitress in a large sports book makes a 25-cent toke on each drink she serves. They tax her accordingly, whether she actually makes the money or not. (Casino player magazine Facebook page)

Vegas Mate Review of the Week
This week it’s Ed’s Aug 31st review of Monte Carlo – 5/5chips

Twitpic of the week

This week’s winner comes to us from @Nickuhas for an awesome panorama of Fremont St and her experience.  He was able to capture all 4 corners of S Casino Center Blvd, the 4 Queens, Golden Nugget, Binion’s and Fremont with the Fremont experience running.  It isn’t the full experience show they play at the top of every hour thankfully because then all the lights of the properties would be turned off.  Instead you get to enjoy Fremont St in all her glowing brilliance.  Fremont is just such a different experience than the stip.  Not better or worse, just different.  I love that if you look close you can see, as is a common issue with stitching photos together, half people, cars, etc. however in this setting, you find your self just thinking, no, that’s pretty much how I remember it.  Luckily it doesn’t distract from the photo because this one is beautiful.
