    About Fezzik's generosity: I believe Fezz donated $400 to a guy named Sid who Meaty was promoting on his radio show in the aftermath of Hurricaine Katrina.

    Also, Fezzik is a favorite among ticket writers in Las Vegas sports books. I've seen his gracious ways and heard about them countless times in my many travels around Las Vegas.

    OK John. Let's play Fact or Fiction.

    I got to the Golden Nugget buffet at 2:00pm pacific time and left at 3:15pm pacific time.

    Fact or Fiction. You did not get up one(1) time during the seventy-five(75) minutes I was eating in the Golden Nugget buffet?

    Was probably afraid he might lose a hand if he got to close to the buffet.

    I would be scared of that too eating with Barry Holthaus!!!

    I can't wait for JK to come here and say YES that he did sit at his table at the Golden Nugget buffet for the ENTIRE time that I was eating there.

    Then I am going to ask him why?

Other than the Golden Nugget and maybe a station's casino property I find every other property downtown to be absolute low end crapola. As for tipping. I always follow this guideline. Poor service,let the manager know why you gave 15-18%, decent service 20%, above and beyond the call of duty 22-25% and if I take up a large table or have a business meeting for two for 1 1/2 to 2 hours I tip double what the normal amount should be.
    You might want to go into a place in the last 20 years before you call a place a "shithole." El Cortez is quite nice old school casino. I've only had breakfast in their coffee shop though the Flame is quite nice as well. Also what Station casino is downtown?

    Maybe he was eating?

    I know you're pretty skeptical of all people that remain at an establishment as long as you for a couple reason;

    1. How can someone possibly be eating for as long as you? The eating king of Las Vegas - Mr. Buffet himself being out sat by scrawny JK? Not possible.
    2. People tend to be skeptical of activities that they partake in themselves - you watching Fezzik eat, while counting his drink refills on your toes, lead you to believe that others enjoy the activity of restaurant spying on their E-adversaries.
    3. You have been arrested/charged/convicted of stalking so many times that, just like a homo can pick out a homo, you think you can pick out a fellow stalker.

    Speaking of the Flame I ate there last night. I have the trout almandine, mashed potatoes, garlic spinach and I nice bottle of wine.

    Don't believe what Fezzik is saying about the El Cortez. He is a cheap mother fucker and he proved it when he left a pile of pennies on the table he was eating at and even with the change his gratuity did not equal 15% which is sad tipping being that he a two(2) time Hilton Super Contest winner.

    You're right, Dave.

    I made one trip to the buffet.

    No dessert for me.

    In spite of what you think, I have no problem with you despite your poor treatment of me.

    Why didn't you visit me when our mutuel friend and your dining partner came to my table?

    Who stopped by Wynn Las Vegas to say hello to you on Preakness Day?

    If memory serves, I welcomed you to Las Vegas when you first arrived from New Orleans.

    In fact, I remember taking a phone call from Jay Kornegay of the Hilton SuperBook seven or eight years ago when he wanted to learn more about your background.

    I didn't bury you then and I'll restrain from burying you now.

    If you don't watch your mouth JK I will tell everybody the story about you and Lenny. Remember that? Or I guess that story is BS too?

    When I first became associated with EOG, The Meatman claimed I never made a bet with an offshore sports book.

    Now, his story has me slow-paying agents and stiffing illegal bookmakers.

    Embarrassing.

    Looks like JK is lying again. The Shrink would be real proud of you son.

    Here is what I said when you first came to EOG. I said you(John Kelly) never had a POSTUP account offshore. Of course I knew you were betting with local bookies which is how I know you are a stiff.

    Have you ever had a POSTUP offshore sportsbook account JK?

    PS Anytime you are ready to burry me JK please do so. Of course I know you have nothing on me so I will call your weak bluff. You see John when you pass the Big Brother Big Sisters volunteer test you know your record is spotless. Bring it on son.

    The Hilton buffet usually runs somewhere in the low teens with my locals players card discount, sometimes down in the single digits with special promotions.

    I usually leave two bucks. Three if I hang out at a table working and tie up the table for a bit longer than normal or show up at closing and keep a waiter/waitress hanging around waiting for me to finish.

    I don't ask for a four-place table unless it's a slack time.

    In the normal circumstance, I figure -- having waited tables in school -- that there's a bit less involved with buffet service than is involved where the food is not serve yourself.

    I do have a major problem with the proliferation of tip jars for nothing more than the "service" of a clerk taking my money. Nothing against store clerks, did that, too. But that's not a service.

    The buffet servers do provide service, however, bringing you drinks, taking away plates as you're eating, etc.

    So I'm good with leaving a reasonable tip, just not my usual 20%.

    Another thing at the Hilton is that the casino is giving me a 25% discount with my locals players card. So, in my inane mind as a George (pun intended) in Las Vegas, I tend to spread some of that discount back to the servers and into the Las Vegas economy. Sort of an economic karma, what goes around . . . thing.

    But that's just me.

    If it is a crab leg buffet I tip $5 because of the mess I make eating.

    If it is a regular buffet I tip standard gratuity which is 15%.

    Buffet waiters work just as hard as regular waiters. Sure they don't deliver food, but they pickup five times as many plates as in a normal sit down meal. Plus I might drink different things in a buffet like milk and juice so I am constantly running the server around unlike when I go out to eat in a regular restaurant where I just order water.

    I am surprised Gratuity is not included in the Buffets since it leaves an opening for cheapo's to not tip.

    <!-- end .byline -->No lucky pennies here: Police have charged Jason West, an aggrieved medical patient in Vernal, Utah, with disorderly conduct. His alleged crime? Attempting to pay a disputed medical bill of $25 entirely in pennies.
    The story, reported in the Salt Lake City Deseret News, describes the "penny offense" this way: West, 38, did not believe he owed the medical clinic $25 but came in to pay the fee in person. He first asked the clinic staff if the facility accepted cash payments, and then dumped 2,500 pennies onto the counter and demanded that they be counted.
    But West apparently hadn't counted on the clinic calling the police; the arresting officer contended that West's protest served "no legitimate purpose." The charge carries a fine that can go as high as $140--and there's no word as yet on what currency West will use to pay it.
    West isn't alone in the ranks of penny protesters. A wise guy in Frederick, Maryland, showed up at the county clerk's office last summer with bags of cash to pay off his tax bill with $966.86 in change.
    And a New Jersey school district a few years back punished 29 students who paid for their $2 school lunches in pennies--possibly as a prank--with two-day detentions. After parents protested, the students were pardoned. The school explained that the use of the small change slowed down the lunch line.

    I remember the show.....pretty sure it was closer to $800. Sid was living in a hotel at the time and was completely busted out. Nice gesture by Fezz naturally Dave fails to acknowledge it herein....

    Kinger, you may be the George Castanza of tip jar tipping. George leaves tip in jar but takes it out when nobody sees him leave it. Only Larry David could write such funny stuff!

    As usual you clowns have NO IDEA as to what you are talking about.

    Fezzik made a $200 bet for Sid that won on pure luck on a backdoor cover. I sent Sid the $200 plus the $180 in winnings.

    The problem is I personally sent the guy Sid $2500 out of my own pocket along with donating thousands to help the hurricane victims. I also paid ALL Western Union fees to send any money I collected for the guy.

    The bottom line right here is if Fezzik only donated $200 to help the Katrina hurricane victims I am NOT impressed. Plus Sid only got some money from Fezzik if the game won. Had the game lost Sid would have gotten zip. This is NOT how you make a donation to charity. Sure Steve did something half way nice, but when you compare it to what I did there is no comparison.

    Just for the record the $800 donation came from a guy who bet $100 on Barbaro to win the Kentucky Derby which is the horse that I gave out on my radio show that year. Barbaro went off at 7 to 1 and I sent the winnings to Sid. Of course I picked up the Western Union fees which cost me $75 out of my own pocket.

    When you do as much charity work as I do(Big Brothers Big Sisters, volunteering as an usher at the Catholic Cathedral here in Las Vegas, donation thousands of dollars to help feed homeless/hungry people) you don't praise people who do 1/10000000th of what you do. I told Fezzik thank you the day he gave me the sports betting ticket for Sid. I think that is more then enough. Are we really still patting Fezzik on the back for a $200 donation he made to a hurricane victim back in 2005?
