UPDATED: The Showgirls Are Angry, Fabulous, But Angry

You won't like it when they're angry.

Update at the bottom of this story!

So, we might have been spending a little too much time gushing about Absinthe. Today, Caesars Entertainment launched a hotel-wide campaign to inform us that its "showgirls are angry."

While hotels from Caesars Palace to O'Sheas are being coyly clueless on Facebook as to why these gals are mad as hell, a media alert we received says nearly 50 showgirls of Jubilee will march down The Strip this Thursday "in a sign of solidarity with the American consumer." Hmmm. Could maybe a price cut be on the way? Or, something bigger as the presidents of Caesars, Rio, Flamingo, Imperial Palace, Harrah's, Planet Hollywood, Bally's and Paris -- ok, all of the Caesars Las Vegas properties -- will be present, too?

If you'll be in Vegas, the march will start in front of Bally's starting around 9 a.m. We'll tell you why the showgirls are so angry, once we find out. First, what's the best way to appease an angry showgirl? Maybe we should pick up some Buffet of Buffet passes as a peace offering.

UPDATE: The showgirls are angry over resort fees. Now, we're getting angry about something, too.

Resort Fees

We recently stayed at the Tuscany Suite & Inn.  Since it was quite awhile since we stayed our room rate was very cheap $29.00 then upon our arrival we were hit with a $14.00 Resort fee.  I have no idea what this was for, so we paid it.  Wont be back knowing that the fee didnt give us anything extra.  Watch out when booking a room....
