I am a lucky man. Not only do I have a wonderful new baby girl, next week I am headed to Las Vegas for a bachelor party for my good friend Lee. I love Vegas, and usually spend at least one weekend a year there putting my liver through its paces. Where else on earth can you find 5 star restaurants, world class shopping, giant buffets and amazing hotel/ casinos.
As usual there is no planning involved, Vegas is a show up and see what happens kind of town. Nine times out of ten it works out and I come home with unspeakable memories and a sore head, but every now and then the trip is a little less than expected. I think you need to go with different people sometimes so as not to get stuck in a rut doing the same things time after time.
I can’t wait to see the new City Center development now that it is up and running, looks pretty impressive. Shame they tore down the Boardwalk to build it though, that place was the best scam in town. Throw down $20 on single deck blackjack and with very little skill you got free drinks for hours and then left with the $20 you started with.
Hopefully I will post from the road and it will make sense, we’ll have to wait and see. I’m really looking forward to eating some food at some celebrity chef’s restaurants and seeing if they’re good or if they coast off their name.
