Las Vegas cab driver Daniel Mann, also known as the “juggling taxi driver,” was surprised this afternoon at the Plaza Hotel with a Hospitality Hero award.
The awards are given by the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority during National Travel and Tourism Week to tourism industry employees who are nominated by their supervisors.
Mann thought he was simply picking up a fare and was genuinely stunned when he pulled up and saw LVCVA Host Committee Chairman Oscar Goodman and two showgirls waiting for him.
Mann accepted the award and then true to nature, began entertaining the crowd that had gathered around him. After dancing and juggling, he told the crowd how honored he was to be given this award and it was a dream come true to meet Goodman. The LVCVA is giving out nearly 60 awards over the next two weeks.
