Parties can get expensive. For example, if you want to book a vip area in high end clubs, it can end up spending a couple of thousand dollars in just one night. I used to do that a lot.
Wowza, you spend 2k Likes and party

I have been to Omina a few times. However, I prefer to go to XS in Vegas. The price of reserved couch/chair areas varies there of course depending on the season. The only advantage Omina has over XS is that it's in Ceesers palace. I love to stay in that hotel and prefer it to Wynn (where XS is).

Forget Vegas, even in Dallas VIP seating can cost around $800.

Even though my salary was decent, I was simply living beyond my means. As a result I have no savings. I am going to change this in upcoming years though. But as of now, I am focused on finishing my education instead of earning. So my debt is going to pile up because of college loans and all that :sick: :sick:

Here's another question: when do you plan to retire, and how much savings do you plan on having when you retire (including house equity)?

Lol the Liberal mindset of expressing a convincing argument:

"I'll just post a vague link without saying anything :thumbup: "
You just write these things to get attention. That's it.

Although here you're not writing a lot of paragraphs, to insert something
that isn't true (example, when you said I was talking about MAGA hats for
Covington, never said that, never thought that).

This link isn't even politically insulting to anybody.

You just felt you needed to get "3k and party".

Writing things like what for attention?

"Wahhh I'm mad at Admin so I'm leaving the forum wahhhhhh :thumbdown: ....
.
...oh actually nobody gives a shit anyway so maybe I'll stay"

No wait that was you, you whiny little attention whore!

And yes I have to have to spell out your own thoughts to you but wearing a MAGA hat is the reason you feel that way, you're just too much of a retard to realise it. Maybe ask your carer.

More truisms "I never said that before!" Who the fuck said you did? You know it's the truth but you'd never admit to it.

A lot of people would care. This is because, clearly, rclark is The Man.

You're also cool. Everyone should chill and get along. DIfferences on these issues shouldn't get so nasty and personal. :roll:

What was your salary, if you dont mind me asking?

I liked Omnia because of the moving chandeliers and the atmosphere. I've been there a few times and each time i always made sure i got just the VIP bar card package. I hated that it was always overcrowded but then again i saw one of the most popular DJs there (calvin harris, zedd, etc). XS i didnt have a good experience at but liked that it was outdoors. I went there when it was really cold outside though.

I feel like Omnia is some place that everyone should visit at least once when they turn 21

That's exactly why I liked XS. When I go to clubs, I usually hang out in patios or outdoor areas. It's easier to talk to people that way. In doors, I find it hard to communicate because of loud music. Try going to XS around April. It's a great time to be there.

I will probably retire around 65. I am not sure how much amount I need. In my last job, I had a good pension plan in addition to 401k (it's unusual for private organizations to offer pension). My current job offers it too but I will probably quit the job sometimes later this year so that I can focus on school full time.

What were the terms of the pension plan? How much would that pay out, and for how long?

It was going to be 45% of my salary at the time of retirement paid out for the rest of life. That in addition to 401 k and social security would have been a nice retirement package. They actually had a pension calculator according to which I was going to get around 65 k a year in pension alone. 65k was above 45% of my then salary but it perhaps took into account the 3% yearly income increment that we received in our company.

I had to quit the job to pursue grad school though. :worried:
