Agreed. The whole point of discussing and/or visiting the Longhorn was those three blackjack tables. It was a little haven for red chip players what with a $2 table, favorable comps and (of course) the three-card double down rule. Without blackjack the place may as well sell out to Dotty's.
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

My favorite thing about the Longhorn is their coffee shop. I generally only eat breakfast there but it is my kind of place. A greasy spoon with very affordable prices. I usually get the small Chicken Fried Steak and I think it is $4.99 with hash browns and toast. They are also the only place in Vegas that i know serves chipped beef on toast (Shit on a shingle).

I started a Hall of Shame to chastise the Sahara for baselessly suing the blog Vital Vegas.

Scott needs to be supported and applauded. I follow on Twitter and his podcasts, new one came out the 24th, well worth listening to.

I like the article on what dealers get paid, especially the advice on tipping. What are your thoughts on tipping the cocktail waitress? Many here feel that $1 per drink is sufficient, yet that was the going rate 25 years ago and I feel cheap doing it.

Of course, as your dealer chart shows, it depends on where you are. One time I was at the Morongo casino near Palm Springs and tipped the waitress $1 for a water on her tray. (No booze on the casino floor there which allows 18 year olds to gamble.) She was so grateful that I wondered if anyone in that pace had ever given her a gratuity before.



@MichaelBluejay did a great job. I agree your opinion. I'll re visit here again.

You could get a small CFS with potato and toast for $4.99 or get twice as much CFS for 9.99, but only get one serving of potatoes and toast, or you could order two $4.99 meals and get two or everything.
I liked their regular burgers but made the mistake once of ordering their 16-ounce burger. I finished it, just to say that I did, but it was bad.

I generally don't finish the $4.99 chicken fried steak. I sure don't need any more food than that. That is enough food at the one meal that I won't need to eat again for two days.

I'm offering a $100 reward for reports of any U.S. player spending any time in jail after being sentenced for gambling online, as a player.

I'm doing this for a couple of reasons. First, if I'm telling readers that I think jail for online gambling is extremely unlikely, then I should put my money where my mouth is, and show that I'm actually confident about my position.

Second, if I'm wrong and anyone has actually done jail for online gambling, I want to know about it, and the bounty might motivate someone to report it when they wouldn't have done so otherwise.

I've offered rewards before for finding problems with certain content, and I've paid out a few times. It's worth it in order to make sure my content is good.

I respect that! As far as I know not only is that number zero, but it's not a crime in the first place to play. The crime, as I understand it, is US banks facilitating the financial transactions.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.
