    Trips to Las Vegas:
    As there are always many questions on this board about comps at various levels of play across town -- I thought I'd share some info straight from the mouth of a host at Hooters this past weekend.

    For any of you that read my TR's, you know that I enjoy spending time at Hooters playing VP at the bar and throwing cheap dice in the pit. This trip was no different, as I found myself there twice -- for about 5 hours each time.

    On a bathroom break from VP I decided to stop into the host's office, introduce myself, and ask a few questions...

    Here's what I was looking for --- On my November trip, I played enough to move me up a tier on Hooters Rewards system, nothing huge -- but some decent coin in. I was expecting some mailers, and have got nothing.... I asked what level of play was expected for mailers... His response shocked me ---- he said Hooters looks for the following:

    BJ: 50-100 avg bet for 4 hours.
    Craps and Roulette: 75-150 avg bet for 4 hours.
    VP and slots: He never mentioned and I never asked.

    This shocked me....first of all -- why would Roulette require more than BJ?? That makes no sense?? And, it all seems incredibly high for a place that struggles to make it, and is definitely not a high class joint. Really surprising to me that green chip BJ player is not getting rooms whenever they want.

    But...then another surprise. He looked me up in the computer and saw my VP action from the last 3 trips....handed me a card and said to call him next time I'm coming in. Said that my play would get me 2-3 nights, and F/B credit. Didn't mention any FP.

    Seems to me that they would want to actively pursue players -- guess not, they'd rather sit around and wait for the player to take the initiative. Seems like a poor business model -- and it is paying off well for them.

    Not hating on Hooters -- I enjoy the place for some reason -- and will continue to return. Just caught me off guard!

    Side note: The first bikini contest of the year was hands down the best one I've seen ;)

    Trips to Las Vegas:
    Hooters' business model is based on horny guys coming in to stare at hot chicks in tight shirts. Considering the massive amount of eye candy everywhere in Vegas, that's a pretty stupid business model. But I hear the wings are good, so there's that.
