1 - Tao: After three days in the desert without changing clothes, we were in Vegas. Within a few hours of arriving in Vegas, we had VIP table service overlooking the single greatest nightclub I have ever seen in my life, and I'm usually the dive-bar guy.
2 - Ditch Fridays: It was about a million degrees out. We had a cabana with a mist machine by the most popular pool scene in Vegas. We had a bar tab. Do I really need to say anything else?
3 - Spearmint Rhino: The opposite of reality. Countless hot women coming up to YOU, trying to get YOU to go dance with THEM (which comes with a price tag, of course)
4 - The Sports Book: It would have been great. Around 20 guys contributing dough for a four game parlay, two of which had already come in. Halfway through the other two games, it's looking good. Real good. There was talk of taking the $2500 we were going to win and throwing it all on black to double up, to go out with a bang. But then it happens. The Broncos start sucking. Sucking bad. At least we got a few free beers out of the deal.
5 - Ghost Bar: Probably the coolest setting for a bar I have ever been.
6 - Blackjack Table: I really learned how to play this time, and left with the house's money.
7 - Flight Home: Tired. So tired. But the plane was so damn bumpy on take off, the guy next to me was yelling words of encouragement at the pilot. The pilot was behind a bulletproof door. We were sitting in seats 23 A and B. The guy's panic attack might have been justified, though. That was the first time in my life I thought there's a chance I could die on a plane. I got home safely, of course.
