Moments from a convention: An illicit bar tab and a swiped credential

Johnny "Monty Oakwood" Katsilometes

Twice today at the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo, I have witness something I have never seen while attending a convention in Las Vegas or anywhere else.

I was in line at one of the temporary service bars at the Sands Convention Center, waiting to buy a sugar-free Red Bull on ice, when the guy in front of me paid for an order totaling $16 with a $100 bill. He had a quick conversation with the bartender, who then tossed the receipt he was about to give the guy and moved back over to the cash register. He ripped off the receipt that had been rolling out, which was about a foot long, and handed it to the guy. He said that the order was far more expensive than what the guy had paid (a lot more than $16, in other words) and I’m thinking someone is happily padding an expense account with that foot-long receipt. Maybe I'm missing something here, but I've not seen that before. As a form of silent protest, I dropped my Indianapolis Colts betting slip from last week into the tip jar.

Also, early in the week when I was issued my press credential, a member of the AEE PR team warned me, “Guard this with your life. People will try to yank it off your neck. I’m not kidding. Wrap it around your arm if you can.” Whatever. I’ve worn hundreds of these credentials and have never been warned in quite that way to protect my pass. Well, about an hour ago I ran into a colleague who was wearing a lanyard – and no pass. “What happened?” I asked. “Someone stole my pass!” was the response. These porn people just grab whatever they want.
