Carlos Pellecier has been a doorman for three decades, and his confessional to the Daily News makes it seems like a pretty sweet gig, especially this time of year.

But things have changed a bit since he started at age 21. "I would talk to some tenants about what club was hot and where we would be hanging out later," says Pellecier. "But now that I'm almost 50 years old, it's all about the best deal at CVS and trading coupons for Bengay."
