Is It Worth Going To Lobster Buffet At Silverton Hotel, Las Vegas?

THE LONGEST QUEUE I EVER EXPERIENCED.....

Silverton Hotel is offering Lobster buffet every Friday evening, starting at 4pm till 9.30pm.  Being over confident that we could go in anytime we wanted, we reached there at 5.00pm and ended up waiting for more than THREE WHOLE HOURS before we could enter the restaurant!  Never before I experienced queuing so long to have dinner.  Oh my goodness.... the queue was like a railway line, nevertheless we did not give up.  The queue was slow moving, a few people before us gave up half-way while waiting... and we moved forward, bit by bit.  *testing patience*

Yes, our patience prevails... we only managed to be seated at around 8.40pm... phewww..... Since there were 3 of us, we took turns to line up.  Two of us would sit nearby while the other one stood at the queue.  This is not free food, we paid around $40 per pax and by the time we paid and were seated, the "vengeance" began!  Very Quickly we lined up for the Lobsters.... each of us were given two and we ended up going three times for that.... that means I ate 6 lobsters in one night, never thinking of the consequences!
Heads upon heads.... 

Starting with this.... 
Then this....
How much could I stuff in??
The rest ... of course... is not mine.... 
A little bit of this and that... my whole tummy was full to the brim!
Sweet temptations.... 
Left some "space" for desserts regardless!
And the question is.... 
Would we come again?
No, no... I don't think I would...
Not because of the super long Q...
Maybe I consumed too much lobsters..
The next morning, I had a Giant Pimple on my FACE!
urggghhhh.....

How to Enjoy More SoundCloud Plays


When you hear elderly folk say stuff like “how times have changed” we may not really understand where they are coming from. Times have really changed and you better believe it.

Who would have thought that a time will come when a person will become a worldwide star from the comfort of his/her living room? No hectic tours, massive media campaigns and other PR stunts meant to constantly put the person in the faces of the people.
This has however happened a number of times and we have these now-stars in our midst to confirm it. Examples include Justin Bieber, Tori Kelly, Shawn Mendes, Alessia Cara, James Bay, Austin Mahone and many others some of whom you can read about here. With these shining examples, more independent artists are now hoping to achieve this same kind of rise to stardom.
With a lot of people now trying this route to fame, competition has increased, meaning that you now must make special effort to ensure you stand out. There are a number of platforms on which musicians share their work in a bid to gain recognition. The one we will be focusing on today is SoundCloud.

What Does SoundCloud Have to Offer?

SoundCloud is an audio streaming site where music and podcasts can be listened to for free. It was founded in 2007 and now has more than 270 million users out of which about 76 million are regular monthly users. Its services reach more than 320 million listeners globally every month as they listen to the over 170 million audio uploads that the site hosts.
From the above, you can see that there is a huge opportunity here for musicians. There is a ready audience to which you can sell your skills. Add to this the recent announcement of a licensing deal reached with both Warner Brothers and Universal Music and the platform becomes even more attractive as its listener base is now sure to tremendously increase.
There’s however something you need to consider. On a platform like this, you need to have loads of followers and get a large number of plays to ensure you stand out. With over 170 million different songs and podcasts available for listening and some for downloading, how can a newbie get song plays?
This is exactly what we will be examining in this next section.

How to Get More Plays


We already stated above that you need to have a high number of plays and followers to be able to stand out from the crowd on this platform. With the increase in the competition for the attention of the various users, you must be smart and strategic in the way you go about growing your plays.
Here are a few ways to go about it.

Make Sure Your Profile is Top Notch

Your profile is what will either attract people to your page or repel them. You need a description and profile image that will be sure to attract people to come see what you have on offer.

The Quality of Your Song

There’s no point making any effort at all if what you are offering is sub-standard. Your song must be such that people will love to listen to. When you eventually get them to listen to it, you want them to be blown away and be excited enough to share it with very positive comments.

Your Song Description and Art Design

This is part of what we were referring to above when we said “when you eventually get them to listen to it.” Getting visitors to listen to your song is critical. No matter how great the song is, if no one has listened to it, everything it has to offer will be hidden.
Get a magnetic description as well as an art work that practically draws people in to come listen to your work.

Song Tags

Tag your songs properly to ensure that your song is seen by your crowd. Tags simply help bring songs to their exact crowd. For example, if you are a jazz musician, your song should have tags that include jazz so it can be recommended to jazz lovers.

Increase Interactive Activities on the Platform

After uploading your song on the platform, take some time to search for songs in the same genre as yours. Listen to these songs and comment on them. As you interact with others, you will find that they will feel obligated to repay the effort. In so doing, you can actually get some plays and followers.

Pay for Plays

If you are wondering how to buy SoundCloud plays it’s very simple. All you need to do is find a reputable service that will organize natural plays for you. We are not talking about bots but actual plays. You decide how many plays you want, you pay for it and you get what you pay for. It’s probably the easiest way to get plays.

Conclusion

Increasing your plays on SoundCloud requires a combination of efforts and not just a single approach. We have listed a couple of ways through which you can grow your plays on this platform. Take a holistic approach, buy plays and also go for organic play growth. A combination of these two approaches will yield a faster result.
