We Are The VIPs And Don't You Forget It

2008 Trippies award co-winner for Best Blog The Movable Buffet's Richard Abowitz stopped by Stack at Mirage over the weekend to meet with local entertainer/impresario Jeff Beacher.

What he got at Stack wasn't a great meal, but a healthy serving of the slowly-growing-typical service that we - the juiceless non-celebrity tourists who have more in common with Lebowski than Kardashian - have been enduring at many Las Vegas resorts since celebrity obsession spilled its self centered ways into the MySpace generation.

Richard's blog post is a great example of how journalists SHOULD be covering Las Vegas. Everyone from the top brass to the porcelain polishers must know that it is our money that keeps these places open. We are the VIPs, not dicklordtastic reality TV stars. When the word gets out (pssst, its out) that your hotel/restaurant/casino treats its guests like second class citizens, we will stop visiting your hotel and visit your competitors.

Guess what, without us your business closes, employees lose their jobs and stockholders make no money.

We are the VIPs, don't you forget it.



Comments & Discussion:

You would think that the owners would have figured that out by now when you consider low tourism numbers and dropping room rates. I do not come to Vegas to see celebrities I come to have a great time and watch the people who are either seeing the place for the first time or just having fun. Vegas isn't the clubs that screen people in line as if they think that they have H1NI but the casinos, the shows, the shopping and the cafes. If I go in somewhere and am not treated like they are happy to have my business I go somewhere else. Yes, we are the VIP's and they should realize that before it's too late.
