Jack Colton Is The Man

Our good pals over at Liquorsnob.com have sent us this post about Jack Colton, local Vegas-ite, and the man with the knowledge. He seems to have his pulse on the Vegas scene, and he has taken it upon himself to share it with the world. What a guy.

Here's what the the Martini-Lounge had to say about Jack's new site.

Jack Colton believes in himself. Enough said.

But to add even more to it, he chucked all of this riches in order to start up a site that talks about the Las Vegas nightclub scene. You'd think that with all the clubs in Vegas that this niche was already being served. You'd be so terribly wrong.

Most of the publications that cover nightlife in Vegas usually look like they just took some of the many press releases that the clubs send out and reprinted them in their magazines. There's very little actual information that helps you decide where to spend your hard-earned clubbing dollars and your extra-valuable clubbing time.

Here's a snippit of some of the goodness you can find at the site itself:

WHY RESERVATIONS GET BUMPED: You might have heard of a person's table reservations getting bumped when they booked it themselves, and there are two contributing factors to that happening. First, if the person made the reservation at the last minute through a "junior host" (one at the club without much seniority), there is a good chance that the next customer who booked through a host with more rank, or who tipped more upon arrival, got their table honored instead. You always want to make sure that you are booking through someone who has the most "pull" at the club, and you should always plan to tip the appropriate amount. The reason VIP Hosting companies rarely get their reservations bumped, is because they have already factored in a specific tip amount for the host who is handling the reservation. When the ultimate decision maker knows they are "taken care of" $$ wise, the reservation sticks.

Now c'mon. THAT is some valuable info.

August Wrap-Up

Well another month has gone by, and its time to look back at August on the Casino Snob.

In the casino entertainment world we took a closer look at Cirque du Soleil and their odd blend of wonder and performance. We also let folks in on the hilarious and amazing duo of Penn & Teller, and how they can catch them perform in Vegas

In the Casino and Gaming section, we took some time to check out Baccarat, that high-brow game thats so simple even a secret agent can play it while on duty. We also spent some time with the Ponies at Rockingham Park. We even "touched down" on the sports bet scene when you have the inkling to bet on the NFL.

Texas Hold'em Took some of our attention, as we looked at a bunch of books that promised to help you win at the tables. And while technically It was back in July, we can't help but mention our post on craps, mainly because we just love the game that much.

In the Cuisine area, we kicked off Casino Cocktail Friday in style. Thats one series we just KNOW we are going to enjoy posting on for ages to come :)

All the while, the news ever flows onward, we did our best to give you the highlights of the Casino world. A look back at the gulf coast a year after Katrina, the talk about the largest casino in the world, and of course the current debate of the legality of Online Gaming.

Yes-sir-ee its been a good month here at Casino Snob, and we're glad to have you here with us! We hope you enjoyed you're summer, and now we're looking forward to Fall, and to all the casino-y goodness that awaits us!

Casino Cocktail Friday -- Martinis and Baccarat

Shaken, Not Stirred

We've already taken a look at Baccarat this week, and so it only makes sense to have Casino Cocktail Friday at the Baccarat table. A very sophisticated combination of liquors, the Martini has been associated with class and style for decades. Whats more, these days you can get martinis of all shapes and sizes, and in a variety of flavors undreamt of in years past.

Baccarat also is a game of class. It has long been the favorite of the rich and famous, as well as a certain secret agent. The beauty of Baccarat is its simplicity. You have just three bets to choose from, and those who play know that really the only bet is to bet with the house, as it reduces the houses edge to a very small amount.

Read on to find out why we think the martini at the Baccarat table is a winning combination.

A Hint of Style at the Poker Tables

We've all heard that the eyes are the window to the soul, but the truth is, the eyes are the window to your WALLET!

When playing in the many casino poker rooms around the world, its important to do everything you can to keep yourself sharp, and in a winning position. One of the best things you can do is to be aware of your tells, and try to alter them or outright prevent them.


Many players will tell you that your eyes can give away alot of information. It may be a furtive glance at your chips to count your stack before a big raise, or it may be that flicker of doubt that passes through your eyes when you stare down an opponent who is considering a call. No matter what the case, keeping your eyes concealed could mean the difference between a win, and a loss against an astute player. Here at the Casino Snob offices, we have been looking for some options for you to conceal your eyes, while still looking sharp, and letting people know YOU will be the one climbing in through the window.
