Screen name: kklefty
Profession: Bottle Runner at Pure Night Club
City/Town: Las Vegas, Nevada
Relationship Status: Single and mingling
What was the last vacation you took? Where did you go?:
I recently drove down to Phoenix for the first time. Whereupon arriving I got pulled over in a town called Surprise, where they SURPRISED me with a speeding ticket. It was worth it though.
Are any famous people from your town?:
Jenna Jameson, Ne-Yo and Andre Agassi, oh and did I mention Jenna Jameson!
What are some of the things you love most about your town?:
I'm an avid people watcher, so definitely all the tourists make it interesting and I think Las Vegas at night is gorgeous. Plus the money ain't bad.
What are some great restaurants for a night out with gay friends?:
Firefly Lounge, Gimik, Ra Sushi, Switch and really just any restaurant in the casinos are always an experience.
What are some great restaurants for a romantic gay date? What about these restaurants appeals to you?:
Firefly Lounge for a first date, that way if your date is not feeling you, then there are plenty other gay men around that probably would, both literally and figuratively. Marche Bacchus for a serious relationship because its away from the strip/scene, the food is excellent and the ambiance is very romantic.
What are your favorite gay bars and/or dance clubs?:
Cathouse on Sundays, 8.5/Piranha on Mondays and Krave on Wednesdays, my days off, if I'm not promoting for Pure. Plus the bartenders are HOT (See below).
What are your favorite gay parties or events in your town, if any? What is the crowd or scene like at those places?:
QVegas throws gay parties once a month at various locations around town, which are great because its a mixed crowd and usually at places that you might not otherwise go to. First Fridays are cool as well.
If you had gay friends visiting from out of town for the first time, what are some "must-do's" you'd recommend?:
Walk the Strip, gamble, see the shows, go to pool parties during the day and the clubs at night, restaurants, strip clubs. Vegas is all about "the experience," yeah you can do all these activities in your own town but nothing tops the Vegas Experience, where everything is over the top.
Is there a local cocktail that's popular in your town?:
Yeah, any cocktail that you can put into those 3 foot cups they sell on the Strip, tragic!
What bar has the cutest/hottest bartenders?:
Piranha and Cathouse.
Do you have a hometown crush? If so, describe.:
One of the bartenders listed above. =)
