Just got back from a very triumphant trip to Vegas with Lori and a assorted rabble to celebrate a birthday and have some general revelry. Details on that and the prior trip (I know I owe you guys big time), but I do need to tell this quick story.

We were on the 11am back to the ATL when we realize that we are not actually going anywhere. 20 minutes pass and the captain comes on and says that there is an issue with a valve or something and we will need to deplane. Uggh.

Normally this would be a time to both moan and groan, but Lori had made a killing at the BJ tables the day before and we all were in generally good spirits so a 5 hour delay was no big deal.

Well it turned out to be even sweeter as I was contacted by our newest sponsor, BestofVegas.com. They have it all, from shows to tours and everything in between. So please, take a moment to check them out here, or you can click on the link to the right under the search and find out more.

Thanks and more to come soon, I promise!

So I know I owe you guys a bunch of posts from the last trip to Vegas, and they are coming.  I recently switched phones (I will miss you BlackBerry) so I need to get some pics off of there to augment some of those posts, but really that’s for another time.

What’s in store for this time?  Well we will have a review of a room in the Centurion tower at Caesars, a review of a room at the Wynn (so choice), general mayhem with Level 10 and the Vault, and whatever else we can think of.

I love this town….

Pittsburgh Gil was all about this place so of course we had to make a visit.  He is all about beer and has his own site with a great review of the place here.  I won’t try to recreate his review as I feel that he does a great job of telling of all the general tom foolery, but I can tell you that even those who do not drink beer, there is some great food to be had.

If you are in town and want a somewhat different Vegas experience, I would definitely recommend going to the Hofbräuhaus if for nothing else the opportunity to stand up in your seat and swing your oversized mug of beer while singing some crazy German drinking songs and having an overall great time.

Well actually we owe you all (or y’all if you will) a post or two from our quick trip in Sept., but I have been totally swamped as of late and well I have just fallen down on the job!

I will say that there is a large trip planned for Feb. to celebrate a milestone birthday for Lori so stay tuned for posts related to that as well.

Thanks and enjoy your holiday season!

I was just thinking recently that I know of 5 different people who are currently in Vegas or are going to in the next month. All random to each other and all happening now. Something must definitely be going right with the country because no one last year was even thinking about going, let alone actually doing it.

This is great. So to add to the mayhem; myself, 44 and Hollywood will be making our triumphant return to Vegas for March Madness this year. It should prove to be a smashing good time as always, but this year we will be adding some additional new West Coast members to the group. Hollywood swears by them and well really it can’t be any worse than our trip in 08. We had 3 different people in our group lose their minds at one point or another during the trip and it was frankly exhausting. None of that this year, but we will see.

So get ready for more posts as the run up the MM10 is on… My Vegas is most definitely showing.
