Vital Vegas Podcast, Episode 27: News, History, Craps Mistakes and a Metric Hell-Ton of Carlos’n Charlie’s

It’s a surprise episode of the Vital Vegas Podcast. Mainly, the surprise is we’re still doing a podcast.

In this installment, we talk Life is Beautiful, Freedom Beat at Downtown Grand, Wynn Plaza and Gordon Ramsay’s new fish and chips joint at Linq promenade.

Gordon Ramsay

Gordon Ramsay says his Gordon Ramsay Fish & Chips is a week away from opening at Linq promenade. He should know. His name is on it.

Next, we serve up an all-you-can-eat buffet of Las Vegas news, followed by some masterfully curated Las Vegas history. (We just read Wikipedia.)

Our “Listicle of the Week” is “10 Craps Mistakes Made by Virgins.”

A highlight of the show is a nearly 12-hour interview with Genaro Dispa, General Manager of Carlos’n Charlie’s. We ask all the awkward questions you can imagine asking a restaurant general manager, and also hear from a customer who has clearly been enjoying the libations at this fun restaurant inside Flamingo Las Vegas.

Take a listen to the Vital Vegas Podcast, if for no other reason than it will make you appreciate silence.

    Where did you get the drunk loon who interrupted the middle of the Carlos n Charlie’s interview? Wow. That’s amazing if it wasn’t staged. How many other Vegas podcasts drop references to the Federal Reserve?

    I waited and waited for your to mention the #1 “Craps Mistake Made by Virgins” in your list, but, alas, you never did. Obviously, your dice virgin simply wasn’t determined enough to lose his money to make the #1 biggie. Better luck next time.
    While you are entirely correct in your observations, none of the mistakes you mentioned will really cost a crapshooter, new or experienced, any money. Irritating? Yes. Vexing to the game operators? Yes. But not really costly to the player.
    The biggest mistake that players make at the crap table is….(wait for it)…making a pass line bet AFTER a point number is established!
    Whoever does that is between a 6/5 to 2/1 underdog to win that bet. That translates to between a 20% to 50% house edge against the player!! There isn’t a bet in the casino that has a worse edge against the player. It’s “bag of hammers” dumb.
    If a player is determined to make a bet on an established number, they should PLACE the number, giving them a bet with a house edge of between 1.5% to 6.6%.
    Keep up the great work, Scott.
