A reader points out a possible weakness in Amanda Scheer Demme's defenses at the Trop: the service entrance. Why, that's just crazy enough to work! From Craigslist:

Staff Needed Tropicana Bar holding open cal of Sat 3rd sept. from 4 to 5 pm.
Looking for barbacks, cocktail waitresses and bartenders.
Ask for Johnny
Roosevelt Hotel
7000 Hollywood Blvd

As with any undercover operation, remember that you're constantly being evaluated, and be prepared to prove that you belong. Earn Demme's loyalty by taking the initiative; the first time you take a sample drink order, glare back and ask, "Who the fuck do you think you are? Do I need to call security?" They'll be fitting you for an apron in no time.
