Trip report - Vegas 2005
HOLY SHIT WE HAD FUN!
Bart, you bastard! Friday night we stood in the
cab line at MGM for 30 min.... then got back to Palms
and went to get some chow at the 24/7 café
then crashed. Tommy slept in until noon. I played slots.
Then we grabbed a cab to a small British
Pub down Tropicana just past the Cowboy Convention at
the TOMMY MACK CENTER at UNLV, the Crown &
Anchor to watch the LA Galaxy
(I'm guessing that's a soccer team) WIN the WESTERN
over Colorado. So we had to drive by not only
the PBR traffic, but the U2 traffic as well.
We also ran into other Riot Squaders (LA
FANS) there. Talk about small world....
Then went to Quarks and met Jim & Christine
while I frantically called American Airlines getting our
tickets for DFW for the MLS CUP game next
weekend. (So much for those miles I was saving for Maui....)
I just hope my boss doesn't loose his mind when
I tell him I need another day & a half off in a week.
After a few bevs we caught the monorail back to
the Paris and Tommy and & met some friends at
Mon Ami Gabi for a late dinner.
Sunday morning we headed out to the airport at
noon, after having the concierge print our boarding passes
.... got thru the skycap check in and security
in no time. Met an amazing guy, Sam, at the tequila bar who
now coming over for Thanksgiving. Sat next to
one of the writers from LOST on the plane, along with a guy
who does news for Clear Channel, and I spent
most of the flight telling him how great Air America Radio is
(he handles the local affiliate.)
All around it was an AMAZING TIME!
So Bart, thanks for having THE MOST BRILLIANT
IDEA of going to see U2 in Las Vegas.
