Make your own hotel reservations.
BartFest tickets will be available until we run out.
Update - we have 4 tickets left
The good news keeps getting more gooder.
The news is so good, it might present a problem.
The Rio presented me with an offer I just could not
refuse. They gave me the final figures
and I said, "Make it so!" but we basically got a Lamborghini for the price of a Lamborghini.
The problem is - the Lamborghini only holds a hundred people,
we only have room for another 4 attendees to BartFest
...and then we're sold out.
pre-bus ride Tequilafest at the Hard Rock.
Sadly, Mary is no longer managing the Pink Taco, but the sure-to-be-lovely Teri is in charge.
I talked to her Wednesday and we worked this out:
For the bus ride, we will meet at the Pink Taco between 6-6:30.
We have a special table reserved for 12 luxury tequila taste-testers.
How exclusive is this table?
Mrs. Bart is not invited, nor is Christian or even Marc Perkel,
because they don't drink shots of 100 percent pure agave tequila!
Here's the plan: The Pink Taco has agreed to sell us their
best tequila in 1/2 shots.
What I think would work best is to get a shot of Chinaco Anejo as a "base."
Then we, as a group, will try a few 1/2 shots of their best and see how they stack up.
The plan is NOT to get hammered, but we'll no doubt have
a slight buzz for the bus ride.
The only way to make this work is if we split the bill 12 ways, or 9 ways, whatever.
If everyone at the table gets the same amount of the same priced tequila, it'll be fair.
So if YOU are in for a taste-testing of the world's best tequila,
and you can afford it
(I'm guessing the bill might run around $50, but we can get updates as we go.)
If you're ever going to try some fine tequila, this is
We could even buy some really expensive shots and split them four ways.
You've always wanted to taste $35-a-shot tequila, right?
(Herradura Selecion Suprema!)
Well, a $35 shot split four ways is just $9 - what the hell, it's Vegas!
Besides, it'll make you appreciate the cheap-by-comparison Chinaco Anejo even more.
So let's do this on a first-come basis. I doubt we'll fill
the entire 12 slots,
but then again we just might. I'm counting on Larry to be in :)
Sipping super-luxury tequila with a boatload of cool Democrats in Vegas is one of
those memories that you'll be able to enjoy loooong after you've paid your Visa bill.
Remember, this is Friday night, so we'll be kicking off the Party of the Year in style.
We're gonna sip the finest agave leaves on the planet, then cruise
Strip on our new bus,
and then we might continue the tequila assault at the Pink Taco, or split up and gamble,
or play poker in someone's room - the options in Las Vegas are endless - and it's still just Friday!
Bart if you'd like a seat at the tequila-tasting table.
What about Saturday?
If you get up before noon, that means you didn't do Friday as
well as you should.
Vegas doesn't come alive until dark, and they party all night. Just don't be so hungover
that you can't enjoy yourself at The Party of the Year!
There's a gambling option to consider:
We need 38 people to make this work.
The plan, if we can pull it off, is for everyone to gather at a Rio Roulette Wheel
before the party starts, say at 6:45 Saturday. Now, if 38 of us each put $10 on a different number,
then the Wheelmaster will give it a spin and one of us will win $350. The house keeps $30
Since this is Vegas and there's no way to "fix" the bet, I get to play, too. :)
The bad news? It won't work with 37 people, because I guarantee
the white ball will land on
the one bet that isn't covered. The house always wins - unless we cover every number.
It's kind of a fun-nothing thing to do, and it guarantees that
someone at the party
will have won a decent sized pot while the rest of us will just lose $10.
Those with gambling fever can bet more, or make side bets (even/odd etc).
It might be a fun way to kick off the party. It will also guarantee everyone knows
what room we're in since we can all go to the party after the group Roulette spin.
The only hitch to this is since there are 38 of us, they don't
have 38 diff kinds of chips
so we need to register for the Rio Slot Club which is quick, free and easy, and win or lose,
you'll get "points" that couild end up meaning free meals, show tickets or comp rooms.
Once the Roulette spin is over, we head upstairs and the party starts!
So I thought to myself, "Screw it! (Actually, I said "fuck
it") If this is the last BartFest,
I want to lose money in style, so let's kick out the jams and do this first class."
But you see, in Las Vegas, when you say, "Let's
do this first class,"
they have no trouble accommodating, but, ...one pays for first class in Vegas!.
going to party like P. Diddy!
...but with fewer drugs, probably
...and fewer guns, certainly
...and fewer cops, hopefully
Like a girl who saves every penny for seven years for her perfect
we're going to blow everything on this BartFest!
Magic Friday of the Fest is one week away today, and we have 4 more spots to fill.
There are at least a dozen bartcop.com pillars
who have indicated that are coming,
but once we hit that magic 100, we must close the doors, so hur-ray, hur-ray.
Tickets are still just $75
If you've been waiting for the last minute to get in - this is it!
Just 7 days ...and counting
(Oh, Lord, I've already lost my ass on this, so just let the party rock!)
Isn't it exciting????
When this is over, there will be a hundred people saying,
"Koresh-damn, can you believe that Bart-Fest!?"
