Tiffany Biscoe (00:00):
Hi, my name is Tiffany Biscoe, and this is compassionate. Las Vegas, the podcast.
Will Rucker (00:27):
Welcome to compassionate Las Vegas. The podcast I'm will Rucker and I am so grateful that you are joining for today's episode as part of season three and still can't believe in our third. And, and it's time we get to do some really fun things, like meet with our guest in person. Yay. So excited to be here with you, Tiffany. Welcome to the podcast.
Tiffany Biscoe (00:52):
Aw, thank you. Thank you so much for having me. I'm so happy to be here.
Will Rucker (00:56):
Oh my goodness. In this space. So we are at the center, which is one of your three locations. Yes. And I, I was telling Tiffany before we started recording, it feels so good to be back in this space. I haven't been here in person in a couple years because of the pandemic, but I'm here today.
Tiffany Biscoe (01:14):
Yeah. And it's great to have you back. There's actually a lot of people who come in, it's the same kind of thing. Like a, my gosh, I haven't been here in forever, you know, because we've all just been through so much of the separation and like, you know, we're very, we were limited here capacity as well for a while. So now that we're completely open they're, they're looking to build up again, build up everything that they had going before we had to shut it all down
Will Rucker (01:42):
Was certainly a very, very busy place. I know, trying to reserve a room here was like 10 years in advance because there's so much interest.
Tiffany Biscoe (01:51):
Will Rucker (01:52):
Awesome. So now let's just start at the beginning with your story. Okay. How did you land in Las Vegas?
Tiffany Biscoe (01:59):
Well my family moved here in the, and then I actually went and I, I grew up on Guam. So I spent most of my childhood there. But I still had family out here when I turned 18. So then when I was looking to kind of just expand, I graduated high school, whatever. I just decided to come to Las Vegas and go to U N L V actually. And then I had family out here, so it just kind of drew me back out here, but I did actually live here in the nineties when it was really small. And then I went back to Guam.
Will Rucker (02:37):
Yeah. My first time in Vegas was also in the nineties. Okay. And of course vacation, little different. Right. But I, I always wanted to live here from the first time we came. I said, I wanna make Vegas home really. And I just found out, I believe about a year ago that when I was in my mom's room, my parents were talking about moving here. Oh, really? So that was really like a full circle thing.
Tiffany Biscoe (02:59):
That's crazy. Yeah. That's crazy. I was because I came here when I was really young and then I moved back to Guam. I did kind of have these memories of when I was just a very young kid of just growing up out here. So then I'd always like, be looking out for like biggest things when I was back home on Guam. And then, yeah, it's crazy how we just ended up out here. Oh,
Will Rucker (03:25):
So what would you say is the main difference in the culture in Guam and here in Las Vegas?
Tiffany Biscoe (03:31):
Guam is very, so the island is very small. So we have a very tight knit culture. Everyone knows everybody. We have like small villages on the island. And everyone is very integrated in the culture and it's, well, yeah, you're immersed in it really. So I would say, you know, moving to Vegas, it's, there's so many different types of people here. And everyone is spread out also. So that was Def a definite difference with people. But I mean, most locals, Vegas, locals are all generally super nice. So, you know, it's the same. Okay. Yeah.
Will Rucker (04:12):
It's the same. I love that. Yeah. It is. It's such a unique experience here because of the diversity. That's one of things I noticed when I actually moved here. Right. Vacationing of course I spent time on the strip and you know, the whole world is there. Right. But when you live in the city, you get to see just how diverse we are. How would you tell someone what makes Las Vegas special?
Tiffany Biscoe (04:37):
Well, you know, what's funny is at Tibi our Maryland store. I call that area on Maryland and Flamingo that whole hu that three mile radius, I call it the incubator section of Las Vegas. Cuz I feel like everyone who moves to Vegas lives somewhere within that vicinity, cuz it's close to the airport, it's close to the strip. Everything is kind of within arms reach there. So I get a lot of people that move to that area and they're like, we're we're new. What do we do, yada yada. I feel like what finds them the most comfort is get like knowing that Vegas, a lot of things are accessible and they're just like within city, like most people freak out when I'm like, oh you can hike at red rock, like 30 minutes from here or, oh you could go downtown. They're looking for like something.
Tiffany Biscoe (05:26):
Cultural. I always, I always tell 'em to come downtown, you know, arts district, the whole thing. And just like the different things that Vegas has to offer. That's when, you know, as a local, especially living here for so long. And it's just brings people at home, you know, kind of just pointing them in the right direction. I feel like many people who moved to Vegas just have no clue. Like, you know, like where is my normal store? Where is this? Where, you know, so best thing to do head to your local coffee shop because we'll just tell you everything and I'll, I'll even tell tourists. I'm like, do you want like the tourist stuff? Or do you want like stuff that locals do? Because there's this whole other culture outside of the strip. And then there is a local culture on the strip, especially for employees that do work on the strip and have that kind of lifestyle working in the casinos. So there's lots of, there's lots of different wavelengths I think, going in the city. So yeah,
Will Rucker (06:22):
I love that term wavelengths because that's really what it is. Each of us radiates. I mean, literally we have a magnetic field, so like that thing, but we all radiate our unique personalities and we're all kind of creating this, this tap, right. That is Las Vegas. And I love that. You said this is your local coffee shop. It's like a perfect plug because your, your shop here, the center is called the jolt. Yes. So I want you to share what that means and how you came to that day.
Tiffany Biscoe (06:51):
So the jolt, the name came from a coffee drink that we had at our other store it's called the jaw at Tibi. And we pretty much were like, oh, we wanna open up a new cafe in the center. What are we gonna do? And then someone said, let's give them, you know, a jolt haha like the job adult. But then I, we were thinking, this has to mean something, you know, it can't just be oh or a caffeinated place. It has to mean something. So Tibi stands for two and inspire and be inspired. That's our mantra for how we carry ourselves, how we want the company to be. So I was like, okay, let's come up with another acronym for the jolt and
Will Rucker (07:27):
Hold on before we get there, you just gave me something new. Okay. To inspire and be inspired. Yes. I love that.
Tiffany Biscoe (07:34):
Oh, thank you. Thank you. That actually me and my old business partner, we came up with that at, in college at U N L B. Got it. And it was just something that we thought of like, no matter what you do, you should always just live. If you live in inspiration and passion, then you are gonna be living with purpose. Right. So that's kind of like why we, you know, it was kind of our catch phrase between each other. And then when we were thinking of what name, our coffee shop we're like, oh well Tibi, we could do that. It means something to us, you know? And then it just kind of caught on. So, and then the jolt is jump on the love train, which I think is great for here at the center. Because we want everyone to just, you know, feel included and loved and you know, just it on that love train. When you go in on the, the bad train, get on the love, train, like, so that's what the jolt is stands for. And you'll actually see it on our, our menu that we have our, our specials, like our community specials is jump on the love train specials. So yeah.
Will Rucker (08:35):
Amazing. Yeah. Amazing and love is perhaps my favorite at things.
Tiffany Biscoe (08:40):
Will Rucker (08:41):
And for a number of reasons, I, you know, my, my personal purpose I believe is to be love period. Mm. And so there's, there's so many types of love. Our, our English language has one word. I love my French fries. I love my puppy. I love my spouse. I love my mom. And it's all one word, but in other languages they have different words for different types of love. And my favorite is agape. Oh. Which is really an unconditional love, meaning. It's just the essence of who I am. It doesn't matter what you do or, or how you do. It's just, I love because that's what I am. It's a brotherly generous, charitable love.
Tiffany Biscoe (09:22):
Oh, I love that. I've never heard of that. Oh yeah.
Will Rucker (09:24):
What we talk about
Tiffany Biscoe (09:25):
That I, that, okay, cool. Cool. That's awesome. I love that. Yeah.
Will Rucker (09:29):
But what, what you, you give me with that is the love train. I I've been being more intentional with my travels. Mm. Because I haven't traveled in so long. Right. You know, I don't just jump on an airplane anymore and just go now I think about, well, maybe I'll actually drive there. Maybe I'll take a train and maybe I'll see what the, the land is like on the way to my destination. And for me, that's a, a way of life is enjoy the journey. And so oh, wow. Even in your story about how you ended up naming it, the joke I saw a journey through that,
Tiffany Biscoe (10:04):
That's beautiful. That's really beautiful. It's, that's interesting that you think of travel that way. That's like, yeah. It's about the journey. It's self too, even in the way you travel. Right. So that's pretty cool.
Will Rucker (10:17):
Well, that was a gift from the COVID 19 pandemic. Cause you know, life just had to change and be different.
Tiffany Biscoe (10:23):
Will Rucker (10:24):
I really was blessed to reevaluate a lot of things because I was so busy. I'm still super busy, like no kidding, but I was so, so busy and, and I wasn't purposeful. Mm. And so purpose, I think, is something that all of us are longing for. Right. Some call it spirituality. Mm. But for me, spirituality, purpose, faith, all of that is really the same thing at the core. So I want to shift a little bit and talk about the things that you do and your purpose. So would you share a little bit about just, just why you're here?
Tiffany Biscoe (11:03):
Like in the world? Yeah. Okay. I will go based off of probably I guess personal testimonial from other people in my life. I would say my purpose, the things that I know that I'm, I'm do pretty well at is I'm good at connecting I'm good at like bringing people, people together. I'm good at hosting people together. I like, I used to be a photographer on the strip and they used, yeah. That's why I'm like, oh, the strip life I, you, you know, working on the strip, I get it. But my, one of my managers, he always used to call me the glue because he was just like the team functions differently when the glue is here, because it's kind of like, you're just, I don't know how you know, that I've also been called very like most people can trust me for some reason.
Tiffany Biscoe (11:57):
And I know that's a thing, you know, being able to trust. Yes. It's, it's hard. But I have, I've been blessed. That's definitely one of my gifts, you know? I feel like the reason why I'm here is because I can provide an outlet for people to, I always wanted the coffee shops to be a place where people can express ultimate creativity. Food is a very easy way to connect people together. Yes. We eat every day, you know, and then creating the environment. That's a coffee is just another realm to it. Right. So we're creating that place for people to connect over coffee or food and just come together as a community. Tibi is actually one of the reasons why we started a coffee shop was because we just felt like back then 2013, there wasn't enough places for people to just gather and to connect in a different way.
Tiffany Biscoe (13:00):
And it's, you know, it's funny and I know I'm just gonna stray away from your conversation, but it's funny because I'm so busy with all of the coffee shops and stuff. Right. And you talked about being busy or busier before. COVID right. I recently had coffee with someone when last week and we ended up talking for two hours, but it wasn't like anything. I mean, we were there to talk about one thing and it was business related, but we spent maybe like 15 minutes talking about it, but we just started to talk about life and like, and those kind of conversations, like in depth and just bringing like, you know, your your histories together and seeing like your, your, your journey versus my journey kind of thing. And it was just so great. And I was like, very happy to have done that.
Tiffany Biscoe (13:49):
And I'm like, I need to do that more often. And it was in a coffee shop that wasn't one of my coffee shops, which is what I have to to do sometimes is so I'm not working. Yes. but that's what happened. And I'm like, this is what we do. We create these environments where we can express ourselves when people can connect. I mean, yeah, it's a very fulfilling job. I will tell you that because just being able to see people come together and then, I mean, I've seen funny stuff too, like I can imagine. Yeah. Like my regulars going out on dates that is funny. Oh, really? That is so funny. Cuz they'll be like, was it good? So
Will Rucker (14:26):
For love connection,
Tiffany Biscoe (14:28):
Right? Yeah. They'll come before the date and then afterwards and they'll be like, so did, did it look like we were vibing? That was like the first date, you know, I gotta bring him here and I'm like, I think I saw something and sometimes I'm like, how did you feel about it? Like, you know, so I think that's why, you know, that's, I think that's really why I'm here. You know, I've always been that kind of person that loves to bring people together. I love the the greatest thing that I love about being a coffee shop owner, you know, having the honor to do so for this long, first of all the Las Vegas community has really blessed us. We've been open since 2013, so we're hitting that tenure mark soon. And it's just when you are really involved in your community and when something crazy happens like a pandemic, you see people like come through and show up and just really be there for you in whether it's just seeing a friendly face, whether it's just you know, being that person to talk to.
Tiffany Biscoe (15:33):
I didn't realize how vital we were actually until the pandemic happened and I'd have customers come in and they were like, we just, you know, we're yeah, we want the coffee, we want the waffles, we want the pastries and whatever, but they're like, well, we just wanted to see someone and you're like our person, you know, or the Tia, you know, or is their place. So the jolt, unfortunately couldn't stay open cuz the center closed, but we were able to connect with people in a completely different way. That was incredible as well. But that's what it was. It was that connection. So here at the center the jolt became a part of delivering with dignity and really have you heard of delivering with dignity? Have
Will Rucker (16:13):
I heard of it? It's actually one of our partners for compassionate Las Vegas. Oh yeah. So didn't even know this beforehand. Please go
Tiffany Biscoe (16:21):
Get yes. So we do about 300 meals Monday through Thursday here at the Jo can I have a high
Will Rucker (16:27):
Tiffany Biscoe (16:27):
Yay. And we started early on with them and this is on, on. And let me tell you, it is when we went to go deliver those meals and hand out those meals and just connecting with the community. Like that was just crazy. Like we had people like crazy good. Yeah. We had people calling us you know, just saying like, you know, like, God bless you, thank you. You so much, you don't know how much I need this. Just to have like too, because food is a problem. Right. You know, especially during time of pandemic food, it becomes it's, you know, like we you've seen everything with the news and to get something delivered to you when you're in that at risk community a lot of people would call us or even send me emails just saying, thank you so much because it's the one thing that they can look forward to, you know? And just knowing that a driver's gonna come, don't worry about eating today. Especially the families. It's hard, it's so hard. So we are so happy to be a part part of that and to still carry it on and to still, you know, go with and be a part of delivering with dignity. It's just, it's just incredible. So
Will Rucker (17:43):
No, that's, that's amazing. And I, I did a delivery. Oh. And what I messed it up. Okay. So I don't know how they're doing it now, but back then you had to log into this like app thing and it was supposed to tell you your route and everything. I didn't do any of that. They just, I just went on the list and went to everybody and I'm like, I hope they know that the people got their food because I did not follow directions. Yeah. But one stop in particular was an elderly lady who, I mean was just radiating, like, and she was so grateful to me for bringing it. And I'm like, it's an honor to be able to bring you this and to, to, to brighten your day, like I'm doing this because I'm blessed with abundance and I want to share. And she was so grateful.
Will Rucker (18:28):
She's like, well, I want to give you a tip or something. I'm like, please. Don't like, I'm not here for that at all. Yeah. But she just wanted to show her gratitude in some sort of meaningful way. Right. So I told her to pay it forward. Yeah. And I'm, you know, it's such an amazing and vital program. So the fact that you're doing that, I mean just takes this to a whole nother level. Yeah. One other thing I'll say is what I heard from you is the, the fact that third spaces are essential. Having a place for people to just be, that's not home, not work. Yeah. But somewhere that they can be in community, even if they don't actually talk to others. Right. I will go to a coffee shop and just work. Yeah. And I mean, I have a great off office at home. I've got a great office office, but sometimes it is just being around other people and feeling that wavelength. Yes. That makes a huge
Tiffany Biscoe (19:19):
Difference. Yeah. That just, that just personal connection I think is just, it's so important. I have a little at home office too, but I'll tell you how many times my creativity will get plugged because I'm sitting there. But I know behind me is like chores or like, oh, you know, that grocery list isn't finished. Oh, I need a, you know, a million things run through when you're at home, unless I'm just chilling and I turn completely off. But yeah, that's what a coffee shop is. It's that place where you can touch base and connect, but it's not, it's almost not as formal as a dinner, you know, but Hey, we can keep it casual. We can just, you know, connect and for, for a little piece of time. And then, I mean, what a better catalyst than coffee or tea or something to just kind of like give you that little perk. So yeah, that's what it is.
Will Rucker (20:10):
So I'm a total tea person.
Tiffany Biscoe (20:11):
Will Rucker (20:12):
Yeah. I, I have probably 30 different flavors, you know, the little tins on my desk, in my home office. Cool. And I got a little KET set up so I can always have a different tea. And the reason I love tea is it makes me feel very grounded. It can give you that little boost, but it's a little less jolting yeah. Than coffee. Yes. And so tea is very special for me. And then also the type of conversation I can have over tea right. Is just different than a coffee conversation. Coffee for me feels business and tea feels relational. Interesting. It's just a me thing. Interesting.
Tiffany Biscoe (20:49):
Will Rucker (20:49):
But I, I, I bring that into the conversation to, to loop and earth day. Okay. And grounding.
Tiffany Biscoe (20:56):
Will Rucker (20:56):
And our connection to the planet. So GU being a very special place in that way. I'm sure influences how you operate here.
Tiffany Biscoe (21:04):
Will Rucker (21:04):
Share a little bit about that.
Tiffany Biscoe (21:05):
Well, it's funny that you bring up Guam because that is kind of why I'm always, I'd say like resource conscious because Guam, we have so many typhoons all year long and when you have a typhoon it's, it's the same as a hurricane. If anyone wants to know, it just goes in the different direction and it, they can be bigger be because they're over the ocean. Right. and a little stronger, but the same thing. So sometimes you go without power without water. Longest I ever been without power and water was two and a half months. Wow. So yeah. So we're collecting rain, water. We're utilizing every single resource that we have. So I am kind of, you know, like anything that comes to resources, I'm just like, oh, but we don't need to waste this. We don't need to do this.
Tiffany Biscoe (21:55):
It's just kind of how I grew up. So in relations to earth day I mean the I've always been ever since I was a little kid just like really, like, they've been talking about global warming my whole life. I feel, yeah. Now it's amplified, but they've been talking about this my whole life. So like when we had the opportunity to partner up with bellwether coffee roaster we, we jumped on it because it was an opportunity to roast coffee that has zero emissions. Wow. So all of our coffee is zero emission and coffee. It literally all of the smoke that comes from a coffee roaster, the machine sucks it back in and it turns it back into energy and we've been able to save about 10 coffee trees last year. Amazing. Yeah. And that's thousands of pounds of CO2.
Will Rucker (22:46):
Yeah. I, I love that. And I don't wanna take us too far cause we're, we're getting towards the end of our time together. Yeah. And I think it's important to highlight what you just shared because delivering with dignity, there are hungry people. Yeah. But it doesn't matter if you're hungry, if you have no planet. And so I think that the way that we use our resources, we're at the point where there's no excuse for anyone being hungry, but there's also no excuse for pollution. Yeah. And I think you just highlight that with something as fundamental as capturing that emission and reusing it for
Tiffany Biscoe (23:20):
Energy. Right? Yeah. And if the opportunity is there, you know, then we can definitely then do it, you know? There's a lot of little things that people do in their homes now. And I think COVID also sprung that up. Just more people like being resourceful within their homes. And I, and that's great. And I feel like, you know, this is our earth, you know, this is where we live. We just need to, and we are the I, I don't know if you wanna say Supreme being or like reigning, you know, being me and my brothers kind of have this joke that octopus will take over everyone and like couple millennials from now, that's gonna be like, they're gonna rule us. Yeah. But for now we are the intelligent force here. So like we should, with that, we should take the responsibility to do the best that we can, you know? And it's not like anything. I feel like we can change overnight, but I feel like with the good habits and like everyone just being a little more conscious, like if we can do it, you know, and we'll, I'll get there eventually. So, or we could live underwater. I'm cool.
Will Rucker (24:26):
I'm, I'm picturing the octopus just it's gr because they are so intelligent. If they figure out how to like capture water and bring it on land.
Tiffany Biscoe (24:37):
Will Rucker (24:37):
See I'm with you see what I'm
Speaker 3 (24:39):
Saying? When they figure out what a glass bubble is. There you go, we're done. We're done. They're just gonna have a bubble over there. Isn't there like a cartoon,
Tiffany Biscoe (24:46):
But yeah, that's our joke cuz we're like, they're really smart and they're really intelligent. They just need to figure out how to get out of the water and then we're done. Yeah.
Will Rucker (24:55):
All right. So as we close, I have a few questions. I try to ask every guest. Okay. And the first one is, how do you define compassion?
Tiffany Biscoe (25:04):
I, I define and passion. Okay. I have a personal definition. And the reason why this is personal is because I feel sometimes it's very easy to forget compassion and exactly what that is and how hard it can be. Sometimes I define it as the act of loving of loving somebody or not somebody, but it's just the act of love that, you know, and understanding taking the time and nothing is ever really black and white take the time to understand and, and then understand where that's, that, you know, the situation is coming from or the person is coming from. And then, you know, it's, it's more of like a feeling. Cause sometimes I feel like when people don't, when they forget compassion, they can easily forget everything else that comes with that, you know, kind of like forgiveness or even like love even, you know, sometimes it's just easier to be like, get caught up in a yes, no, and kind of situation you building walls and whatever. And I feel like compassion is a reminder that life is not that way and that things can be different. And I actually, I use compassion a lot because it's very easy to get, especially if you're in a cynical environment or selfish environment just like have a little compassion, take a little time before you act a certain way or just react, you know?
Will Rucker (26:47):
As a business owner. Yeah. You employ compassion.
Tiffany Biscoe (26:50):
I try to, I really do, even with customers that irritate me, I really do. I really, really do. And I try and tell them, you know, this is gonna sound crazy, but I have told customers multiple times if they're or upset or mad because something took too long or order got lost, whatever I would, I just tell 'em, I'm like, I'm on your side. Like I kind of remind I've said it so many times. I'm like, Hey, I'm on your side. I want you to get what you want. I want you to be happy. This is just, you know, and I'll just say, this is what I'm dealing with. Or like, you know, and then usually a that kind of rectifies things, we have a rule and it's called the gen the golden rule. And it's pretty much a, if you approach all situations at work with a genuine and honest intention that you will produce a positive result.
Tiffany Biscoe (27:40):
And it's one of the first things that I teach everybody when it's their first day is to be genuine because and approach things with a positive intention, you know, because if you have, if you're dealing with a situation and you already have negative intention, like I'm going to, you know, like it's not my fault and all these things, then what is your result gonna be? You know? So it's kind of like approach things with a positive intention and just from a genuine place, because most of the time people respond to like an honest and genuine place. They'll be like, okay, this person person actually cares. Yeah. You know, and that's what we want people to know, especially in our cafes and like in the service industry, we're here because we wanna do this for you. We want to create this for you. So yeah.
Will Rucker (28:25):
I think that's a great way to, to sum up that. Yeah. And I just wanna highlight the, the level of purpose that you are bringing to this space. I admittedly, I, I love all my barista. That's they? Right. Barista. Yeah. Yeah. I, I do. When I go to the, I have a couple major places I go to and I know them name, they know me by name. Unfortunately they also know my drink and I feel like I too much, but it's, it's such a special thing because sometimes when we are at work and we think our job is so menial, oh, oh my gosh, all I'm doing is making someone a cup of coffee. No, you're creating an experience for someone. And that's someone maybe, you know, saving a life that, that day or that someone, maybe whatever. Exactly. And you get to take credit cuz you help them get off to a good start.
Tiffany Biscoe (29:10):
Will Rucker (29:11):
So there's, there's so much purpose in that. Yep. How do you, let me back up in and do this. I, I like to ask you to finish certain sentences, so we'll do that. So I'll say the start of the S and you finish. Okay. All right. In spring is
Tiffany Biscoe (29:28):
Inspiration is first thing that came to my mind is inspiration is love. And it is a moment where you get to capture something special, something magical even. And it's yours. Yeah.
Will Rucker (29:43):
The most amazing thing about love is
Tiffany Biscoe (29:47):
It can be unconditional. And when it is it's beautiful.
Will Rucker (29:51):
Yeah. Third spaces need to exist because,
Tiffany Biscoe (29:56):
Because we need an outlet where we can be a different part of ourselves or even just our true self either way. It's another outlet for you.
Will Rucker (30:07):
Love it. Last one. Hope matters.
Tiffany Biscoe (30:11):
Will Rucker (30:13):
Ooh, love that. Oh my, okay. My last question for you and now I wanna dive into, cause you've got some exciting things happening. Okay. My last one is, if you could pick a theme song for Las Vegas, what would that be?
Tiffany Biscoe (30:27):
So this is gonna be crazy, but this is the first thing that came to mind. The theme from friends, cuz it's just like you know, then it's like the, the lyrics are like you know, you never thought your life would turn out to be this way. You know, I think it's like, you're, you're a joke. You're broke your love. Life's DOA like dead on arrival. Oh my God. And then it's you know, and life, sometimes you're in second gear and it's like, I'll be there for you. Cause it's kind of like when I first came to today, I didn't know what the heck I was gonna do. I didn't know what was going on. And then, you know, like I told you, like the city has really come through to me. Like in some people have had different experiences here, but when I moved to Vegas, I just, I had a lot of friends. I had a lot of love. I have a lot of new things and it was like this wild and adventurous place. But it came through and it still comes through and it's just like you know, best example is delivering with dignity. Yeah. Because whole community,
Will Rucker (31:30):
You get like the award for best Vegas theme song, hands, dog, because that, but it's so accurate because even after the ten one tragedy, like we were there for each other. Yeah. And that's that to me is the spirit of Vegas. And I always say we're a place of reinvention. Yeah. And I think the reason people can reinvent here is because there's such a solid foundation of love and compassion because you can really try here. And if you fall down, you can get back up. Yeah.
Tiffany Biscoe (32:02):
Absolutely. Like Vegas is, it's where people come to, I feel find themselves and find their dreams. And it's crazy because you can, you can actually do that. You know, and like we love it. We love it. We cheer everyone on. We're just like, it's just, yeah. There's such love here. And
Will Rucker (32:22):
If it's 3:00 AM and you're hung green. Yeah. You can find food.
Tiffany Biscoe (32:26):
Oh yeah. That's the best part. That's the hardest part about leaving Vegas? Oh my gosh. Yeah. Like that's the hardest part about leaving Vegas.
Will Rucker (32:35):
All right. So tell us what you've got going on.
Tiffany Biscoe (32:37):
So we have a lot of things going on. We are celebrating international waffle day, March 25th. It's gonna be at our Tibi Maryland in Flamingo location and we are working well we're working, but we're also collaborating with the burn foundation. And they're an amazing organization. They, they generate fun for victims of fires in they're part of the Southern Nevada fire department. Yeah. So we're collaborating with them and we're doing a waffle eating competition and we did the same thing last year and pretty much it's however many waffles. These firefighters can eat in five minutes. We will donate $10 per waffle,
Will Rucker (33:20):
$10 per waffle,
Tiffany Biscoe (33:20):
$10 per waffle this year. I'm also go, gonna throw in a little bit of a bonus waffle because they really like the red velvet waffle. So I'm gonna slide a couple red velvets in there and if they get to the red velvet, then I'm gonna add extra money. Probably it's gonna be a yeah. If you get to the red Velt you get a double, so, wow.
Will Rucker (33:41):
Tiffany Biscoe (33:42):
So that's what we're gonna do this year. And we like to do something fun, something with the community for international waffle day. So we're super excited. I know that the firefighters are excited and I'm a little scared because they're bringing some people who can eat. I heard. So I usually make about 70 waffle for this competition, but I think I'm gonna make a hundred, my goodness and see what happens.
Will Rucker (34:05):
Well, I'm excited now because I mean, first of all, that waffle day is a thing. Yes. Like that's amazing. Yes. But then that you are using that for such good.
