Some Guy Hit A Royal Flush At Fiesta Rancho And Got A Tat.. Of Fiesta Rancho

January 25, 2013 at 9:46 PM | by | ()

Ok. So, really, there's not much more to say about this story other than to repeat -- some guy hit a Royal Flush at Fiesta Rancho and got a tat... of Fiesta Rancho!

Station Casinos, Fiesta's parent company, is so amazed that it can't even tell us how much the Royal Flush paid out quite just yet. We're pretty much in awe, too. We've often dreamt of what we would do with a big win, but getting a tattoo honoring the casino it happened in didn't make the first, second, or 15th page of our wish list.

Which Would You Rather: Vdara or The Signature at MGM Grand?

January 4, 2013 at 6:20 PM | by | ()


In this episode of Vegas Decisions, we're helping our friends pick a place to stay later this month. But, not any room will do. Our friends are looking for some suite accommodations, preferably ones with kitchenettes. Ah, yes, the age-old "what are the best suites on the Strip?" question, but with a little kitchenette twist.

Immediately, our friends nixed the Elara (formerly known as PH Towers) since they stayed there last year which left us thinking of two places -- The Signature at MGM Grand and Vdara. Both of which we know to have little kitchens (and are also non-gaming and non-smoking). So now, how do the room rates stack up?

What Happens When You Tell Your Friend, 'Well, If You Pay For It'

July 8, 2011 at 3:56 PM | by | ()

If a friend's buying, we'll usually let them call the shots for just about anything - red versus white, Italian versus burgers, LOVE versus Fator. Wait. We wouldn't go that far. We also wouldn't go as far as @chasingkadie on Twitter who told @lauracroft83 that she would get a crappy tattoo if she'd pay for it. Oh, sorry. We meant a tattoo of a crapper. Yes, a toilet.

For reasons that surely warrant a story of its own, @lauracroft83 (yes, that Laura Croft) loves the porcelain shrine, at least according to @chasingkadie. So during a "night of drunken extremes," the twosome ended up at what Kadie thinks was Starborn Tattoo and it was there that the "shitty kitty" was born:

The Tats People Get In Vegas

June 30, 2011 at 5:00 PM | by | ()

Some may be more fascinated by the word with the "i" in it, but we're fascinated by the one with an "a."

Every time we see a tat it enthralls us. We're mesmerized by what disappears under a sleeve, what you can barely glimpse beyond the swing of a ponytail, what can be seen partially creeping down a leg. Just as fascinating as the tattoo for us is the story behind it. Was the birth of a tat, especially a Vegas tat, from a moment of pain? A time of joy? A night of drunken excess?

This VegasChatter member is still waiting for the right inspiration before we get ours, but we know for complete certainty that it will evoke our overwhelming love for our son. It won't be simple, obvious or whimsical. It will be deeply personal as most tats are. Just as @Juliab's is to her. She's bid us farewell for now here at VegasChatter and has journeyed back over the seas to the UK. Before she left, tho, she shared the story behind her Vegas ink:

Vegas Decisions: Celine Dion for $55 or Celine Dion's $65 Flip Flops

June 13, 2011 at 7:58 PM | by | ()

The other day while ambling around Caesars Palace we noticed a window display case full of Celine Dion merchandise. And you know how much we love cheesy concert merch!

And Celine's swag is just as cheesy, er, extravagant as her new show at the Colosseum. Not only are there CDs and several varieties of t-shirts but also hats, flip flops, champagne glasses and specially designed Judith Leiber clutches. But some of the prices of the Celine souvenir items have us doing a double-take.
