    Give Jose a congratulations the next time you stop in. Jose just marked his 25th anniversary with the Boyd Corporation. :beer::thumbsup:
    I think he has been at MSS since 1996 and before that at the Cal. One of the nicest bartenders downtown!

    Agree 100%. A trip to Vegas isnt complete without seeing Jose at MSS.

    Jose is the absolute best. Next to an hour or so roll at Craps, his smile is one thing I look forward to at MSS.

    Jose is our favourite of all. Amazing how he can remember your name after a year away from MSS. I always sit at the end of the bar just to listen to his interaction with the
    cocktail gals...Eva, Shelly, Jennifer. We never have to ask for a drink...it just appears, no matter how busy he is.

    Jose is THEE MAN !
    Last trip he alerted me to the high progressive
    jackpot on the 50 cent VP bartop.
    I never would have seen it since I only play 25 cent or
    occassionally 1.00 dollar.
    jose told me: "it was the highest I've ever seen it."
    SO GUESS WHO HITS IT ?
    I hit it late that night !!!!! .....$2,300 !!!
    Next afternoon I stroll up to Jose and ask him "Who hit that jackpot ?"
    He said, "I don't know ?"
    I said, "Well I know.......ME ! "
    I gave him a hundy tip.

    I like Jose too!
    When I was there in July, I played .50 at the bar, and told him he was thought of alot on the boards!
    Boy, did I get wasted BIGTIME.

    Another big fan of Jose here. Actually, I think all of the bartenders at the Boars Head Bar are great.

    Boyd must be a fairly good employer! Jose and Oleg are both great. Oleg remembers 4 - 6 months at a time when I show up at 7 am that I need one black coffee and one decaf! Jose remembers which beer I get. Before that, the white haired guy (sorry my name memory is poor) was great and he had been there for years when he retired.

    That was Bryan. Hope he is enjoying his fishing and retirement.

    I don't know which bartender is Jose but when I went the other week one of the bartenders said hello to me as if he really remembered my face. I'm starting to think he did. Nice folks there!

    Kelly was still there in late July when we were there. Oleg is a good guy but I have had just a little contact with Jose. All positive experiences with all three!!

    Used to stay DT but have moved on, yet I still make it a point to spend one day each trip at the Boar's Head. Oleg and Jose are the best. Love talking beers and sports. I arrive early and get personal attention b4 it gets too busy.

    I do have to say this about Kelly -
    When she first started - she was a bit of a "VP Nazi".
    She kept looking to see if I was betting the max.
    Once, she realized i was a "regular" she stopped watching my betting.
    but that took until my return trip.

    Just got back from our first trip downtown. We visited MSS and fell in love with the place!!! Hit quads like three times at the bar. We also watched Monday night football at the Triple 7, food and atmosphere was great. We are now thinking about staying there the next trip. :beer:
