LOT'S of the girls love PT's. They all seem to spend their days off at whichever PT's is closer to their house. And buffalo wild wings. People ****ing love those for whatever reason.

Re: AMA about being a bartender in Las Vegas

I get off work and we hit the spot. This cute little asian hottie wanted me to have drinks with her so I'm hanging out. Beer and a shot beer and a shot. More people show up and they want to do shots. I hit a five spot for $200. I can hang out. I'm ****ed up. Everyone is going somewhere. I can't move. I pretend like I'm still gambling. Everyone leaves. Mary Ann sits down with me. This porn star body. She's late. She wants a friend. She's squirming in her chair. One leg goes up. The other leg goes up. She's talking and there's this phat pussy pushing it's way through spandex. I can feel her pussy pushing at me. This big fat briny oyster. I don't even want to ****. I just need that thing plastered on my face until I can't breathe. I just want to pass out in her pussy. ****, am I going to do this. I can't even think. I'm wondering whether I even have a dick anymore.

Okay. I'm going to do this. Wake up son. Pull it together. Do you sell smokes? No, but there's a gas station across the street. I've been in this spot before. No way I'm walking Boulder at 4am for smokes. I step outside and start stumbling. Vato is right there. Hey bro, you got a dollar for me? I just got out and... I'm feeling strong. "Dude, I don't have ****. I'm broke. Going to get smokes on my card."

I get my smokes, pay with cash, and walk out. There's five of them now. Hey, homie you got a smoke for me? For one second I pause. I need to burp but nothing comes out. I stumble back one step. That moment of courage is gone. "Alright, who needs smokes?"

I walk back into the bar. She's gone. The bartender is smiling at me.

They're local gaming pubs.

The basic recipe is a VP bar with a pool table.

We made hundreds with two of us and was not a tipping crowd.

It is easy to short pour most frozen drinks though.

Re: AMA about being a bartender in Las Vegas

Subbed! This is a great thread. I transitioned into coffee a few years back but before that I spent about 6-7 years bartending in Australia, Scotland and bussing in Canada (gotta know someone or work your way up if you wanna tend bar anywhere good there, and I really like that system)
Brings back a lot of memories, such a good read.

Re: AMA about being a bartender in Las Vegas

Any memorable fights/brawls? Sickest thing you've witnessed happen in a bar?

Have you ever had to personally break up fights?

How hard is it to nail a female bartender?

And I will pour those heavy.

Pro tip: Ask what liquors get comped/poured out of the bottle before you order. If you drink screwdrivers ask, "What vodka do you pour out of the bottle?" Then order that by name. "Great, I'll have an Absolut screwdriver please." By law (within our comp policy) we have to serve by name.

Also, for what it's worth, the best way to get loaded is in the poker room.
I'll tip my hat to Harrah's specifically; they seem to come around constantly, at all hours. One of the servers, Linda, has been around for several years, and while she isn't always the friendliest, she'll keep 'em coming. Late late night poker at Harrah's is awesome because of it. One of the reasons Harrah's is my favorite "gem" poker room.

wtf at serving more than a handful of those.

I thought "Sorry guys, our blender broke" was pretty standard?

Tons of fights. The bars I worked on the east coast were privately owned so bar staff was security. We got on fights as quickly as possible. Like jumping over the bar and throwing punches. We had a reputation of being the last place you wanted to start **** in and owners wanted to keep it that way.

Best thing about being a gaming bartender (now that I'm old and afraid to get knocked out) is having security and metro support. I just pick up a radio.

Memorable fights: (disclaimer) I love gay people. Like, I really love gay people. These two gay guys got into it one night. There was two groups of flaming queens who collided and two of them started to scrap. And I mean PROUD to be flaming queens. I see it starting and I'm heading down the bar for the radio. I get there and pick it up. My partner puts his hand over it. I look up and he's smiling. Three minutes of the funniest **** I've ever seen. They're dancing around throwing open hand slaps. And I mean getting crazy. Knocking over bar stools breaking glasses. Staying ten feet away from each other. "You nasty ***** with your fake ass weave!" Security rolls in and they're looking at us like bro? We're just laughing. Good luck.

Sickest thing: I'm working the sports bar. I'm making orders for my girls in the well and I see this guy walking across the back of the book. All of the sudden he slams his forehead down onto one of the race book desks. Like full on slamming his face onto the table. He does it like four times fast. He starts ripping the TV's out of the seats and throwing them into the air. Just screaming like a banshee. Knocking over chairs. My girl is like, " 2 bud lights, 2 coronas, 4 bottles of water..." HOLD THE **** ON! I'm on the radio with security down that end of the bar. This ****ing guest is in my face, "Hey, can I get two bud lights?" ****ing oblivious. This guy is rolling around the back of the book knocking over tables. His pants come off in the melee. I'm looking at bare man ass and he's screaming like a girl getting murdered. I will never forget those butt cheeks. Crazy drug insanity man butt cheeks flopping around on the floor. Burnt into my mind. Forever. This is why I drink. Security shows up but they won't touch him. Ten minutes of some naked dude screaming that the devil is burning him. Meth will **** you up.

As someone with a bartender track record (nailed a bunch and married one like an idiot), I'm interested in the "How easy are female LV bartenders" question(?)

FWIW OP I was mostly interested in best approach of cold picking up a bartender at the establishment while she's working.

At the bar there's usually the clear bartender/customer divide (I'm just 1000th dude shes seen this week ordering a beer) so any pro tips / real life stories would be interesting.

Fight stories were great
