I Kissed a Girl and She Liked It

The construction at NYNY is almost complete (yay!). The only thing left is the center bar, which will be located in the, yes, center of the casino. Keeping in mind that I've been working very sporadically, that I don't really pay attention, my information is outdated and relayed from questionable sources, and deadlines are sometimes quixotic ambitions...the last I heard, everything is supposed to be done by September 27. For everyone who has the correct updated info, I refer you to my disclaimer.

Anyway, the new high limit room is done and it is be-ew-tee-ful! Now we're talking. For those of you who have been here before, it is where the Big Apple Bar used to be.

Let's take a tour!

I was trying to get a picture of the entrance of the high limit room but all these people were crowded around it, staring down at some guy because he dropped dead when the dice at the craps table hit him in the temple.

Just kidding.

Seriously, though, the craps games are right in front of the high limit room entrance so that's why all these people are in the way.

Aww...look, as you enter and peer to your right, it's our fine lonely pit employees, looking dapper and high-limit-ey. Mike is in the black suit and Dolph is in the gray. They are professional, friendly, and knowledgeable at all times. Even off the clock. I just love these guys.

To the left is the bar with table-top video poker machines. There are no "guns," which means all the liquors will be poured from bottles, as they should be.

Here's a shot from farther away. Why? I don't know. So you can see the lovely tile decor and that yes, there are barstools. There are also some widescreen monitors on the wall. Unfortunately, the lovely cocktail waitress does not come with the bar as she is overqualified for the position.

What a nice little lounge this is. It's located to the immediate left of the entrance, and right next to the bar. So when the high rollers bring their non-gambling buddies they can just sit and get hammered. Something for everyone.

This is the chandelier hanging above that lounge, and I swear it is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. Have you ever played that game Nuclear War? Usually you play it with a friend, someone as immature as yourself, when you're somewhere, say, an elevator, a bar, a church, a funeral...and you pretend there's a nuclear war, and the only survivors are the people in the room. You have to fuck someone to save a loved one's life. Masturbation and suicide and your companions are not options, who would you choose?

I would choose that chandelier. Yeah, definitely. I would fuck that chandelier.

This is the 69 room. I don't know what all these slot machines are doing here.

After visiting the 69 room you can towel off and gargle.

Hopefully self-explanatory.

For real, is this the coolest faucet you have ever seen? It's literally a waterfall! I am blown away by this! I know it's completely aesthetic and adds nothing whatsoever to its intended purpose but I have been holding a torch for this faucet for years. It's a sad and pathetic tale.

Years ago, when I lived in Los Angeles, I was a lowly non-union extra in TV, movies, and commercials making $40/day. It wasn't my dream to be an actress or anything, I was really just lazy and it was easy money. So I was in a few scenes of a movie called Mistress, which was shot at a house in the Hollywood hills, and the bathroom had that exact same faucet, except it was black. The toilet was black too. I'll never forget that because I was thinking, oh my god, this is how rich people live.

I know. It doesn't take much. And yeah. That faucet stayed on my mind for almost twenty years. And now I can just go in that high limit bathroom and turn the faucet on and off, on and off. Don't think I won't.

OK, so is anyone ready to rock...ROK Vegas that is? I know, that was lame. What do you want from me. Get your own web site.

Cocktaildoll's #1 fan secures her place in line. That's right, check your camera, babe, because this is a once in a lifetime opportunity.

That's my Susi. I may or may not have kissed a muchacha but she definitely liked it. I mean, would have liked it.

I'm planning on being at ROK on Wednesday, September 3, around 10pm, if I don't get called in to work. I'll try to take more pictures, maybe of the inside since I haven't been yet. If anyone wants to say hi please do, and we can also take some pictures together for my web site!

Omigod, they still make that waterfall faucet? I *love* that faucet! I remember seeing them in gold plate at a high end department store somewhere around here in the late 80s, and then never again. Any idea who makes it?

While looking around for it online, I am finding out very quickly that the word faucet looks misspelled if you see it enough times.
