Are drink refills available? If so, does the person clearing the tables get them for you? If not, then they are a busboy and I wouldn't tip them.
Captain Crunch milkshakes are the human equilvant of ambrosia. Food for the Gods. KGB at Harrah's had them down pat. I miss that place.

Yes to refills, but you get them yourself.

Hijacking. Let's keep it at your last sentence from April -- seven days.



It has come to my attention that ChumpChange overserved his last sentence by eight days. So, for the hijacking infraction at hand, he is sentenced to time served.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

That is a good outcome because I didn't mean for or make the hijack comment hoping anyone would get suspended.

Hijacking happens all the time, usually unintentional (I hope). I just got really frustrated that the very first response took it off in a different direction, I mean come on. If you don't like the topic, don't reply. And if enough people feel that way, the thread will quickly die.

$22 for a burger with fries and a soda, at an upscale resort facility, is not bad. I値l have to give it a try if I ever make it back out to Vegas. Cap地 Crunch shakes sound intriguing.

Tips? I don稚 know. $2 sounds about right if you池e going to give one.

The Smash Burgers around here used to have trash bins, but I think too many times the reusable metal dish got thrown out. So now you just leave it on the table. I知 with the Wiz. I don稚 tip they are either.

... In my Atlantic City days there was a place at Taj Mahal, called wait for it... Burger, that I just loved and haven't found anything it's equal until maybe now.

Man I LOVED those burgers!

If you ever get back to AC, check out the burgers at the Irish Pub in the dead area between resorts at Caesars. They池e a close second.

Hey, DJTeddyBear. I am familiar with Irish Pub, both AC and Philly back in my day, although I never had a burger there. If you are telling me they are compatible to the old BURGER at the Taj, makes me want to give it a try.

Unfortunately, I don't get back to AC often. I think I have been back twice in the 11 years since I moved to Vegas. Once to check out the Revel when they opened only because Revel was under construction and paused during my AC days, so I wanted to see how it finally turned out and a second time about a year ago to Borgata.

Borgata is kind of funny. When I wore out my welcome at Borgata (bet restriction, every time I played), I knew my time in AC was over and shortly after moved to Vegas. But even though Borgata wouldn't let me play, or more accurately would restrict my betting to $5 to $50, even though I was playing a $25 and $50 minimum tables, I still can get free rooms, some 11 years later. Shows what a disconnect there is between departments. lol

I hate the tipping 田ulture of the USA, which seems to get worse every year. I wish we could just set a full price

In most countries I致e visited, tipping is always optional. If you received a great service and want to tip, then leave five or ten percent maximum. But it痴 always fine to just pay the bill with nothing extra .

That said, I知 a decent tipper here since that痴 the way most servers compensation is structured
It痴 all about making that GTA

I don't believe I was hijacking. I was drawing attention to the notion of paying for tips by electronic means because of the pandemic. There's a coin shortage too. I was also a bit at a loss as to why several Denny's nearby were permanently closed and I can't go back.

But what's missing is an edited post by Roger Kint that was finally deleted before you got here just ragging on me, I thought that was the highjack and my 2nd edited post was a response to that. I couldn't really tell from kewlj's post whether he was referring to me or Roger Kint as the 2nd post. So I'd like my week of time served back. This is the second time this week I've gotten strung out a bit by disappearing posts & disappearing users.

I dispute the hijack against me but this isn't the first time I've been accused of hijacking for no reason, more like the second.

I don't recall any post by Roger Kint in that thread. However, I'll take you at your word you were responding to something he wrote. In the future, that is why there is a quote feature to the forum. In the interests of the benefit of the doubt, I'll give you your time-served credit back.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I didn't want to quote Roger to begin with.
Thank you for your reversal. I'm not sure what kewlj's opinion on this will be.
