    Is it considered bad etiquette to order 2 of the same item from a HH menu? It seems like a way for someone to take advantage of the discount prices.

    We would be ordering drinks and a side with the HH food?

    I don't think so. If it's on the menu, order as many as you want. It's not like you're depriving someone else of the item by ordering it.

    You're supposed to take advantage of the discount prices. As long as you order food and drinks, you're good. People that just order food and drink water ruin it.

    I never tried this but wonder if anyone did: they say you can't order 2 drinks at a time but what if you tell the CW to bring 2 beers and she holds one while you down the first one in one swig. Then she hands you the other one. This is technically legal, right?

    Then tell her to bring 2 more.....great way to get a lot of drinks in a minimum amt. of time!:beer:

    I'm not really a beer drinker in Vegas, but I've definitely ordered a vodka soda (or vodka rocks) and have the cocktail waitress say to me, "Want me to just make that a double?" It's no real difference to them as long as you're tipping.

    They expect you to do this. Everyone else will be doing it too.
