FEATURE STORY: Tipping in Las Vegas


This story was inspired by David C. Surette’s Letter to the Editor this week. Las Vegas can be intimidating by it’s very nature. In fact, one of our main goals in publishing this newsletter is the give you that “edge” and the knowledge you need to help eliminate that intimidation.

These are my suggestions. Do you tip more or less? Have their been situations where you tipped and it really paid off, or tipped and got lousy treatment anyway? Let us know at Make sure to include your name and state (city optional) if you want it considered for publication.
