Party Bus Driver Anthony Lale

It is Wednesday again which means it is time to do a Spotlight on someone that is in our Nocturnal Vegas Nightlife Network.  Today, we chose Anthony Lale. Anthony is a Party Bus Driver here in Las Vegas and a great friend as well.  Enjoy working with you bro!!

#1  – The Transportation Industry is huge in Las Vegas. Which vehicle is your favorite of ALL TIME & why?

My favorite vehicle is what I am currently driving.  It’s a 26 passenger Party Bus that looks and drives great. People love the light show, the stripper pole (sometimes I’ll have 2 stripper poles on the bus) and the Ipad with Bluetooth and Spotify where customers can play whatever music they want.   I have a lot of fun with the groups that I drive around, and because of it’s size, it attracts a lot of onlookers which helps me to get even more rides.  Also, compared to driving a limousine, it’s much easier to clean up than having to bend down inside the limousine every time it has to be cleaned.

 

#2 How long have you been a Party Bus driver & what prompted you to get into the Transportation business?

I have been in the Party Bus business going on almost four years and I have been in the transportation business for 10 years now.  I sold cars for many years and then my father got sick back in Illinois so I went out to help him, but eventually he passed away.  I decided to leave Illinois and come back to Las Vegas and there was an opening driving a Sedan on day shift with CLS and I was told I can make a lot of money in the limousine business.  So I took a shot and I grew in love with the business and I’m still doing it today.

 

#3 – What is your best success & do you have any failures which come to mind?

Ha. My best success, or maybe I should call it luck, was when 18 guys needed a ride and wanted to go to a strip club.  I was like sure, I’ll take you!  Also, getting my Commerical Drivers License was a big accomplishment that allows me to basically drive anything except a semi.  You know how that works out lol. I try to look at failures as learning experiences, but one time I missed a ride because I got confused with Military Time and I was late.  I haven’t made that mistake again tho.

 

#4 – Besides being a Driver, what else is included in your daily routine?

Walking my dogs!  I have three Shih-Tzus that are all related.

 

 

#5 – What is your favorite thing to do on your nights off & why?

Believe it or not, on my days off I like to chill at home, have some beers, BBQ, and do stuff around the house.  I do like to go fishing sometimes too.  I get so much action working the strip and being in the middle of the Entertainment Capital of the World 50-60 hours a week, it’s nice to get away from it all when I’m off.

 

#6 – How do you know Troy Waggoner & how long have you known him? If so, in which ways would you like to grow with him?

I have know Troy Waggoner going on about three years.  We started being friends on Facebook and I noticed his involvement with the Las Vegas Nightlife Scene.  Troy has used me to accommodate some of his groups that needed transportation in town.  We have been growing in a business relationship where we try and send each other clients to help each other.  When someone needs a go to man in the Nightlife Las Vegas Business, that man is Troy Waggoner.

 

#7- What does ‘Vegas Strong’ mean to you?

It means that us as a city takes care of our own people.  People have this misconception that Las Vegas is a fly by night town and there are no real personal relationships.  However, we are the complete opposite.  When something bad happens, we as a city come together and take care of business.

 

#8 -Who is the most famous person you have met and how was your experience with them?

Well I have to tell you this story.  This was maybe 6 or 7 years ago, during the Grammys I believe, and it was at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.  I was driving a 7 passenger Cadillac Escalade and got a call from the office and they told me of this hidden entrance into MGM.  They didn’t know exactly what I was suppose to do, but they said just go over there and see what they want.  I pull up to the hidden entrance which looks like a spot that you wouldn’t be picking people up from.  Then this guy comes running up to me and says “I’m so glad your here, I have a few groups I need you to take over to the Red Carpet and then come back.”  I’m like ok!  I can not remember the exact order but I drove Nicki Minaj,, Rascal Flatts crew, Neo, and Rhianna.  All four of those famous people plus their crew I drove about 1/8 of a mile to the Red Carpet at the MGM.  I couldn’t believe it, back to back, to back to back famous people. 

 

Thank you Brother Troy and I look forward to seeing you and the article.  Thanks again.

Anthony

I am a Creative Warrior in Las Vegas who is helping to protect the West Coast from Adultitis! Adultitis is a plague which often leads to feelings of Loneliness, Failure, etc. Just like myself, these feelings can then lead to worse. I believe that to overcome this plague, we must go back to basics and find joy in which we used to. Many people use to refer to Vegas as Disney for Adults but lately it feels as though we may be moving away from this. I say that it is Time to Relax, Have Fun, and Feel Young Again! Ask About My Nocturnal Vegas Game Plan, especially Vegas Themed Fantasy Parties and Transportation! My sister said it best when she told me how much she disliked Vegas when she lived here in the 90s. She told me, 'Vegas was boring with nothing much to do besides gamble or nightclubs. It is an entirely different place these days' Message Me to Find Out for Yourself! - Troy - 702.981.1739
