Yes, It's Cinco De Mayo So Anything Goes... But Bud Light?

Tyler Durden's picture


And yes, a token eurotrash sipping the Red Bull was there. Also, does this mean Nevada's GDP will be up by 10% next month?

That is nothing, you should see the stripper bill at Saphires! Although I can tell you there is deflation in lap dances and hookers here in Vegas. (correction, not deflation, lower prices due to significant increase in aggregate supply). 20-23 year olds flocking here each weekend by the thousands).

But this reeks of complete conspicuous consumption and gluttony that you would only find in the darkened smoke filled rooms of Investment Bankers and high ranking bureaucrats.

I've actually been to Tryst at the Wynn.

Last January sometime, I was doing IT work for a furniture company that had a permanent show room at the World Market Center, so I was in Vegas quite frequently.

A friend of mine moved out there to take advantage of the depressed housing market. He became a table waiter at one of the more prominent clubs and was pocketing anywhere from $500-700 a night in tips alone. Being connected in the clubbing scene, he had VIP access to essentially every bar and upscale club in the city.

So one night he tells me that we're going out to Tryst with some of his friends. All of the drinks were comped by the club. Bottles of Gray Goose were $500 a piece. We probably ended up drinking about $2-3k worth Vodka alone, not including tips.

It was a pretty fun experience to get the whole VIP treatment at one of these "prestigious" clubs. If the drinks weren't free, theres no way in hell I would have ever gone. The place was packed with the most disgusting, celebrity worshipping, borg-sheep pop-heads that I've ever seen gathered in one place (aside from GOP or Dem political events).

I'm enjoying the fruits of peak-empire while it lasts!

Las Vegas casinos of note (or attempted note) scurry around to meet the nightlife needs.  Thus many have some pretty awesome nightclubs. 

Still isn't the same as a bunch of nightclubs next to each other, but, Las Vegas has some awesome high end clubs.  It's all over the place, but far enough away to be a hassle.  It's not nightclub next to nightclub, next to bar, next to nightclub, next to irish pub, etc. 

When I was at Tao in the first month it opened they had girls dressed up like china dolls and full on makeup, just sitting like a porcelain statue in a place where you'd think a porcelain statue would be.  Like the british guards, they don't move. I don't know if they still do, but, they did then.

So yes, as it comes to quality and sheer blow it out your ass extravagance, Vegas has it.  Notice the Gratuity line, AND Tip line.

All that money, enough to buy a new house, or ten if detroit, and all they got was a hangover....and possibly blue balls.

Fiat doesn't buy you what it once did.  10 years the poverty line wage for 1 night in vegas. 

Could you imagine, a person instead could of gotten 189,000 bush dives for that price and just had pussy in his face the rest of his life.

On that note, what a waste.

$25,000 on the Vueve Clicquot works out to $1,250 per 75cl regular bottle, or about a 2,500% markup from a typical store price. I guess the "atmosphere" there is quite amazing.

Or maybe they are ahead of the curve at Tryst, and have adjusted their pricing to reflect the true value of the dollar.

Just goes to show that PT Barnum was slow.  It is one every nano second with this version of Willy Wonka's wall paper that one shouldn't, wouldn't wanna lick.  Even when Red Bull & Buzz Light encrusted.  Some folks always get confused when attempting to attend the Make A Wish foundation event when awash in buzzwasser.   Midway games at the carnival, like a Jim Cramer show, are always loaded with bells & whistles only the house gets to operate.
