Just returned Sunday. HAD to go Rio - was there 5 years ago - had a blast. UGH - downhill! The performers are VERY stingy with the beads. This is petty, but I got beads 5 years ago; gave them to my daughter - she wanted more; the only reason I got some this time was because an older lady overheard me say to hubby "I'll never get any!"; took pity on me; gave me one of hers. We were there 3 times and no matter how much I hollered/waved, they just wouldn't throw me any! I mustn't have looked "right" :) Even the Chippendale dancers were very "snooty" - noticed they only threw them to the young "hot" girls -note to Rio - it's us "older ladies" who will probably spend more money in your casino - keep us happy and throw a few beads!
Cons: Nasty performers, Stuck-up showgirls, Snotty Chippendales
