Another Do Not Do in Vegas: Do Not Buy Water Bottles Off The Street
Hooters water is cleaner than some others out there.
Folks, no matter how thirsty you are during your trip to Vegas or how stubborn you are to pay $7 for bottled water from the minibar--do not, we repeat, do not buy bottled water from someone standing out on the Strip.
You know the people we are talking about. They cart little coolers behind them with handwritten signs saying, "Bottled Water, $1.25" (or less.) The more aggressive ones wave the bottles in your face as you walk by. Yes, these cold water bottles look mighty tempting when the desert heat and your killer hangover have sweating like a whore in church while at the same time practically choking back cottonmouth. But don't do it.
In an update to those pesky street performers, local news KTNV reports some gagging discoveries about these water bottle peddlers.
"I've had people complain about the water bottles. They are not sealed and even filled in the restroom," said County Commissioner Steve Sisolak.
If spotted by police, people peddling water bottles will usually get cited. But then they will just move to a different location.
Excuse us while we just vomit in a bucket right now. That means while your friend (or child) is getting felt up by Pokemon, you could be sipping on some bathroom tap. Ugh. Just don't do it. Instead find a Walgreens or CVS as there water will be much more reasonably priced than inside the hotel.
On the bright side, KTNV also reports that there could be some crackdowns happening with the annoying card snappers and street performers. All of these annoyance and there possible solutions are being discussed at a county commission meeting today as well as how to make the Strip safer.
Hmmm...we just had a vision of the Strip has a shiny, happy and gleaming esplanade with no traffic, no Elvis impersonators, no giant beer bongs and no nudie cards littering the sidewalks. Yeahhh...somehow that doesn't feel right either.
