I said tips. People prefer cash tips.

That may be true, NokTang. I am sure the wait staff at Caesars as well as the waiters and waitresses at Fridays and Dennys all pefer cash tips. But when I pay my check with a credit card or debit card I am not likely to leave the tips in cash. I am also not likely to sit down to a $250 dinner at Old Homestead steak house and whip out cash for the tip. And when I am sitting on the edge of my bed a robe watching a movie in my hotel room at Caesars and the room service waiter is setting up my dinner I am not going to worrying about paying a tip in cash when I simply sign the check, with the 18% automatic tip included (plus the delivery service charge for room service).

However, next time you're my waiter be sure and let me know and I will tip you in cash.

... When I get room service, I sign for the food. The check goes to my bill on the room. At check out I pay the charges. Now, I have my charges taken care of with my comps. But TR comps do not pay tips -- they remain on my bill and are paid with the credit card I use when I check in...

TR credits cannot pay for tips is not a hard rule. I was surprised last February when I checked out of Harrah's Cherokee and indicated to the clerk that she could put the $50 in tips on my cc. She looked up and said, "You have plenty of comp points. Don't you want to use them?"
I have never been able to use them in Vegas for tips. I said I have never been able to use them on tips before, but she said that was fine in Cherokee. I can only guess it has something to do with it being an Indian casino.
I was told way back that if the casino comp'd the tips, that it would count as salary, and then the casino would owe more SS taxes.

Has anyone stayed in the new NOBU tower yet?

18 yos in a row -- that's hardcore (and definitely would be a MAJOR record...odds of that happening are 1 to 2.54 x 10^-23 (i.e., zero). BUT, and this is my not so sick brag of the night, I was at a craps table tonight, got my money out there on the DC 8 and DC 9. Waited through 25 rolls (including 3 points made, and FIVE 11s...yet no 7s) before an 8 came. Then waited another 10 rolls before my 7 finally came, which let me get back up to just over even after I got a follow-up pair of point-7s (most of my money had been on that damn DC 8). Anyway, sick thing was that I didn't go busto and actually made money. Meanwhile, the rest of the table (clueless about how to actually bet and was playing all the hardways and horn bets) made a friggin killing. Old guy next to me started with $200 and was up to over $1400 with smallish bets only. Good for them :)

Long ago debunked as a drunken haphazardly story the member still maintains as being true. However, you gotta admire his courage and stamina as many would have wilted under such duress.

Noktang is absolutely right. No one that works in a casino ever makes a mistake. Not hotel staff. Not dealers. Everyone's perfect.
