See Where You Rank in Virginia

  1. So my buddy and I are packing up and driving out West to Lake Tahoe in a week. My brother and his fiancee live there so we are going to shack up with them for a cpl weeks until we get on our feet. We are really just winging it. We both have about $2000 saved for the move. Just wanted to get you guys opinion on Tahoe.

    If anyone lives there, where are the best places to work/live?

    Someone said jobs are not as plentiful as I had thought. Just wondering how difficult it will be to get a job if I have extensive fine dining experience as well as a degree in molecular biology?

    Any other thoughts/opinions on Tahoe would be greatly appreciated. My buddy's sister lives in Vegas so if all else fails, viva las vegas!

  4. I know someone who has a campsite there. Nine feet of snow with 100mph winds a few weeks ago. Sounds promising.

    Seriously though? I mean 2k to get out there and live with my brother (for free) seems like it should be enough. Would like to know your reasoning behind this comment.

    High of 47 and low of 17 with 2 mph winds right now. I'm sure its rough sometimes but we are talking about one of the most beautiful places in the US.

  11. my buddy lived up there for a while, he said the casinos are always hiring, he worked at a bar in a casino for a while, he said it kinda sucks living up there more of a place to visit then live but i guess it depends on the person. hes really not a poker player or a gambler..

  12. i moved out there with well under 2k, so that should be fine if you have a place to crash for a few weeks... when you look for a place, do so in little mexico, its the neighborhood of packed streets coming off of ski run, paradise ave, forrest ave, aspen ave, there's a few more but you'll find a reasonably priced place there if you can put up with the fiestas every few nights (i'd recommended palling up with your dark skinned neighbors if you like good cocaine, cause the hippy bull shit out there sucks

    as far as work goes, you can always find work at the ski resorts, but its not the best job and you may have to catch a shuttle to kirkwood every morning, there are a lot of restaurants, if you have good fine dining experience, go to the base of ski run and go into the huge green hotel, go back to the bar and ask for rob, tell him you play poker with mike from WV and he'll juice you up if he can, if you can trim weed i can probably get you a job too lol

    gl, tahoe's fucking awesome... i'd reccomend doing all your serious drinking at lakeside casino, and play poker at harveys, their 2/3 game is retarded soft

    i'm like 2 hours from there and try to make it up on the reg, so PM me when you get there if you want to make a scene. not sure what kinda music you listen to but crystal bay has a great lineup over the next few months, check that out
