Dude’s Insane Bar Tab From Las Vegas Hotel Pool Party Over Memorial Day Weekend Is Why I Drink At Chili’s

Coming from a guy who will show up in court to appeal a $30 parking ticket, the idea of Las Vegas has always appealed to me more than Sin City itself. If I lose $40 on roulette, someone’s drywall is going to get rearranged. Then again, I am a poor who still wears free t-shirts from sophomore year.

If you’re like me, the following image from a day party bill at Encore Beach Club in Vegas during Memorial Day weekend will make your skin crawl and your wallet spit up dust.

  • Is that $825 bottle of Tito’s infused with Jesus’ blood because I cop that shit for $34.99 at my local packy.
  • Someone explain to me how shrimp ceviche is priced at $24 and chicken fingers clock in at $75.
  • Why spend $156 on 12 sugar free Red Bulls when you can buy an 8 ball from a street performer for $150?
  • If I’m spending $800 on a Venue Fee, you best belief I’m pissing into the pool.


The viral post was outdone by Twitter user David Oro, who went as far to call the dude above a “rookie” for not being as fiscally irresponsible as him. The below receipt is from the Tryst Wynn Las Vegas in May of 2011.

You can find me at the Chili’s off the strip snacking on a 2 for $20 and bringing my own Tupperware. This shit is for the birds.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
