Lotta tramps hanging around Bellagio?

There was an episode of one of those cops / jail shows that shows cops arresting two homeless guys for bathing in the Bellagio fountain.

Ridiculous post of the day. Water is free at casinos. No one forces you to tip. Yes, Obamacare has a lot to do with this post. Now I know how to hijack every post you make.



Water is not "free" since:

The meter turns and the casino pays for that
The person who installs water fountains for free keeps calling in sick, ditto the person who cleans them
The vendor who gives the free cups had a truck that broke down
The ice maker that runs on free electrricity is being used for drinks at the bar that produce revenue

The "Obamacare" thing was thrown in to make the point that casinos have costs and those costs keep going up. Yet people demand free water as though it is some kind of right they have from the casinos. Free water and water fountains in casinos should be considered a courtosey for patrons, not a new "right" of some sort.

BTW: I totally buy that Indian and other casinos have free water and fountain drinks and Strip-props don't because of lowlifes who come in for it. A Burger King near me had to rip out the self-serve fountains because nearby section-8 housing residents were taking thousands of gallons of product home with them. Free stuff draws that kind of crowd.

I think theres a water fountain in the 4 Queens where you
go out to wait for your valet car. Its a long way from the casino
and its there mostly for employees I think. It might be the only
one I've ever seen in Vegas.

There's plenty of absolutely free water available out of the spigot in the restrooms. Just cup your hands under it after you pee.

I've used them at McCarran, in Terminal 2. There is one in the immigration area, and there are several on the gates area past security.

But for those both thirsty and cheap at a casino, simply go to the restroom and drink from the tap.

Heck you people are cheap ... even at the Venetian where the morning CWs are "no spring chickens" the waitress brought me one orange juice and three water bottles and put them on the beverage tray of the craps table for me. That means she earned that measly dollar as far as I reckon. And I see no reason to drink tap water or search for a bubbler. Even if a bubbler were but steps away, those devices are always filthy, no matter where in this country you go.

If you are that tight with a lousy dollar, you won't enjoy the Vegas Experience.

You can often find the one water fountain near the restroom in a casino. (but which of the 12 restrooms?) Well, I can't help you there.

The first time I heard that term was when I lived in Mass; the locals pronounced 努ater fountain like 澱ub-luh.
