G-MANIFESTO TIP OF THE WEEK: 9/14/05: Vegas
In Vegas, always stay at top notch hotels with top notch restaurants in the hotel (i.e. The hotel at Mandalay bay with Alain Ducasse’s Mix, or Wynn with Daniel Boulud’s Brasserie). Eat a late dinner at the restaurant with a 4 star chef. The reason beyond the obvious is simple: The Vegas Battlefield is won and lost on two questions, “Where are you staying?” and “What did you do earlier in the night?” Knowing this is the case you want to always win this battle. This helps you establish how much juice you have. The girl will probably say she is staying at the Aladdin and ate at the $11.99 buffet, and you say you have a suite at Wynn and ate at Daniel Boulouds spot. This is a perfect segway to talking about how Daniel is one of only five 4star chefs in all of New York and you can talk about how you know Philippe Respoli from NYC. Then you can start talking international about how you have a crib in Monte Carlo and how she really needs to visit St. Bart’s’ and would she fly with you there some time. Basically, now you have established that you’re an international playboy. At this point, all you really need to do is light the girls’ cigarette before yours (with Zippo) and let her use the bathroom before you and your home free. The rest is up to you.
