Post Valet Parking (staging) question

So im going to the hard rock with some friends tonight in the M6 and was wondering what the proper way of asking or getting your car staged in the front? I know its going to cost me $$$ but I have that taken care of. Any tips or advice?

When I was in school I did some Valet parking. Different places have different policies. Ask them if they seem hesistant, usually a $20 tip will do fine.

I was thinking 20-30 would do the trick, but specifically how do I ask? Do I say can you stage her up front?

Don't know about your area but this all works:

"Hey buddy"
"Hey bro"
"Hi how you doin"

"I want my car parked up front, right here..."

You can say staged, parked up front, etc.. You don't need to make it complicated. The money is the most important part.

Money talks. "Priority parking" or "VIP parking" as it is referred to is usually around $40 extra. However, when my car was new and there not other 335s around, I did get parked next to two RRs and a Ferrari at a club here in LA. Nice!!!

Why exactly does having the car "staged" do you for you?

Like everyone's said, an extra $20 or so should do it.

Hard Rock? Staged? WTF? Every single Hard Rock I have seen besides maybe the Las Vegas one never has an area for staging and secondly never would have crazy cars for that.

Also I don't see the point in this just makes you look like a snob and a waste of money. But I bet thats not a big issue.

Convenience; it is right there so you do not have to stand around waiting in a line to get your car back. Also there is a security aspect.

You can always tell the type of person it will be if their name includes "baller" or they detail their 355 as a "TT" or "twin turbo" or various other little things that indicate an overly status oriented nature.
