Viva Las Vegas?

I had high hopes for Sin City... but, I mainly spent the weekend choking on second hand smoke and feeling terribly old.

Ummmmm, people smoke indoors in Las Vegas. How come no one told me this? I was incredulous, walking around all weekend wondering aloud "how can people be allowed to smoke inside?" and "does everyone in this town smoke?"

We attended a male revue... against our will, I might add. I am pretty convinced that our bachlorette was the only one there without a tiara, lingerie and a blow up doll.

Let me just sum up the experience by sharing a scene from the evening:

An Australian "dancer" jumps up on a nearby table and pours a beer all over himself. He jumps down from the table and approaches us.

I am in a panic that either he or the beer dripping from his body (which we are convinced is carrying the herpes virus) will touch us. I begin to scream and scramble to seek cover under the table as the bachlorette screams at me "never show them fear!!"

I did enjoy the hell out of bloody marys by the pool though...

Bloody Marys by the pool sounds fabulous - sweaty half naked men dripping with STDs...not so much fun...hahaha

You are my fave... said...

Yikes! Men's junk hanging out and beer body pourage is not my fave.

hahahah! I hate Vegas and I thought I was the only one! I don't get the appeal-and I'm only 26. It just seems silly to me unless you are a HIGH HIGH roller and can do it up right.

This has nothing to do with these men's junk but did you ever get your goods from superior rings?

Ah, Vegas. I "sadly" got there just after my sister & the rest of her bridal brigade left that exact show.

And yes, the smoke is disconcerting. I mean, you can't smoke in pubs in the UK anymore, for god's sake!
