* I think these over priced casinos should at least provide
you a place to sit especially when it costs $20 to get in at the door.

* Being a female I think it is
rude to expect two or four girls to come up with $300 just to have a
place to sit. Linda S. TX
* You know, most of the
night clubs that require that guest pay a minimum to go to their club,
are always out of business within two years. When will they learn?

* It seems to me that Vegas is
leaning more and more toward "playground for the rich and famous" which
is fine I suppose. The only reason anything exist these days is to make
money and what better clientele to cater to than those with tons of
money to blow. The 300.00 bottle rule is only another way to keep the
average guys out of the clubs it seems to me and that is also fine.
Hopefully Vegas can continue to offer more exclusive spots for the
wealthy and still have room for the working class. I like Vegas, but the
increasing minimums on the table games, more rule changes on Blackjack
to favor the house, constant increases in airfare, rooms, food, cab
fares, car rentals, you name it! is making Vegas less and less
attractive for me every year. When I hear people talk about the "good
old days" in Vegas, I can start to understand what they are thinking. So
much for my point of view. Thanks for asking. Sincerely,
* My reaction is I'm glad I
don't drink -- look at the money I'm saving. On the other hand,
this requirement discriminates against anyone who doesn't want to
pay/drink/or contribute to the profits of the night clubs.

* I rarely sit down when I go
clubbing so it doesn't affect me. I'm there to walk the club and dance.
IMHO, you not going to meet many perspective women sitting at a table
with a bottle of alcohol. Maybe it's me but I think they are trying to
keep out the overweight people. ie. slim people can stay on their feet
for hours no sweat, but fatties get tired legs real quick. In summary,
they could charge 1000 dollars for the bottle and it wouldn't bother me
one bit. Party on! Michael Jenkins Lynchburg, VA
* Face it, Vegas is all about the
benjamins! Of course they want to charge $300.00 to sit in a club. That
way the seats are automatically reserved for the better off clientele
who bring lots of money to spend and it discourages the "just looking to
get lucky" crowd from entering the club at all. Jan H
* Short and sweet greed will get
you every time sometimes you have to use
a little common sense and flex your own rules. McIntosh
