@ winslo2004 - All of what you said is true, but you have to be careful with this kind of job or you can get stuck there. I went to Las Vegas when I was 22, and I liked it so much I decided to stay a while. I got a job in a nightclub and made really good money in tips. I had a blast for a few years, but then I realized I was getting older and all of the things I had planned to do, particularly finishing my education, had been put on hold because I worked so much and at odd hours.
To make real money, you pretty much have to work nights and weekends. Which means you stay up after work and go to bet right about when most people are getting up. So, "real life" kind of passes you by. It makes it hard to date or have friendships with "normal" people too, because you are never available to do things at the same time.
