Where there is dance/pool tables and having good safety.
Which club please? Where?
I have plan to move in Orlando so please advise me.
How is the Orlando to live in? Is it safe ? Crime wise please?
There are TONS of safe night clubs around this area. Most of the dance clubs don't ahve pool tables though.

The only club that I don't go to for safety reasons is the Firestone.

I can tell you as a native of FL and resident of Asheville NC, the pay is about the same as FL. Both states have a lot of wealthy retirees too. My job in NC will pay a bit higher than the one I had in FL, and my wife will be making the same. Also, people like teachers, accountants, nurses, etc... are paid the same in NC.

(Continued from above...)

One thing I wouldnt want to be in FL is a teacher. There is now talk of discontinuing the retirement plans for new teachers in FL, unless they were "grandfather'ed" in.

^^^ Tell that to the teachers. Teachers have always had (what I thought) were great retirement plans.

The pay rate is still not that good then. Most people here in Orlando feel like they are working for peanuts, I know I am

I was only basing my statements about NC based on what others have told me

One thing you would like about living in Vegas Com, is that the pay is higher, the cost of living is the same as Orlando (maybe even less since their real estate market crashed harder then ours), and there is no state income tax

I make $9.15 an hour for Publix here in Orlando, if I were to do the same job in Vegas it would be $16 an hour (even with union dues, I'd still make more money)

I wont be doing that when I move though, I know I will be doing something different

I definitely would have agreed with you on this one last year, but they have totally cleaned up their act since it became a "live" venue. I have been to 4 concerts within a year and it has been really decent. They have cameras outside, inside, and many bouncers. The clientele is wayyyy different - if you get my drift.

In fact I will be going to see Of Montreal there soon.

I went to 57 West for the first time last weekend to see a concert and it's a great small venue.

I'm still not convinced of teh safety of the Firestone for any number of reasons. I agree about 57 West, great venue!

Whaaaat? $16 an hour, seriously?! What's the minimum wage there? I don't even think you can make that kind of money at a supermarket here in Manhattan (where pay is much higher 'cause of the higher cost of living). I had no idea the pay was so good in Vegas.
