For those of you who drink: Caesars/Eldorado are cutting back on alcohol in mixed drinks in Vegas. Without lowering prices, a pour will be measured at .75 ounce instead of previous 1.25 ounces. MGM stays at 1.25 ounces. Bean counters strike again! This report comes from Twitter via Vital Vegas.

I remember when everybody was all up in arms about the new green light/ red light comp system.

That's pitiful. When I had the bar we
poured 1.5 oz, or more. Vegas uses
rotgut for their 'well' drinks, just like
I did. So they're making a killing
on booze mark-ups. They must be
in dire straits if they squeeze every
penny out of a bottle of rotgut.. If
you order a drink like Jack and coke,
you can bet they're giving you the
cheap 'well' bourbon because you
can't tell the difference mixed with
a soft drink. They're called well
drinks because there is a 'well'
in front of the bartender that holds
the most ordered booze. 'Call' booze
is behind him on the shelf.

Who pays for drinks in a Vegas casino? I can't ever recall paying for liquor except when I'm eating in a restaurant.

Wow!!! A ‘shot’ is a defined amount. 1.5 ounces. So if you say... ‘can I get a shot of Jack’, the bartenders response will be.... “yes sir, I will providing you with a double portion which shall equal one shot!”

Just gotta find the right cocktail waitress.

There are a couple cocktail waitresses at my “regular” casinos who remember me each time I’m visiting Vegas and always give me a good pour.

Yeah, they will tell the bartender to do a heavy pour for good customers, usually good tippers

I also did heavy pours for people
I didn't like, to get rid of them
sooner. There was a loud mouthed
Harley rider who drank whiskey
and coffee. He never made it past
2 drinks and he stumbled out the
door. He thought it was because
I liked him. lol

Sorry about that, but it ended up being a good product and every Caesar's/Harrah's property bought it from us.

Don't be sorry, I think its saved me money. It doesn't seem to take much to get the green light on. In the past I think I would play more without the system since I would feel a little guilty knowing I only playing to get drinks.
