    My Trip Report

    My trip reports are rather boring as I do the same stuff every time I'm in Vegas. Craps, food, craps, debauchery (repeat for 7 days). So I no longer post them. However, I did want to tell everyone of one of the more fun serendipitous things that happened my last trip in April.

    I was playing at a reserved craps table at MGM (how I got invited to a reserved craps table is a whole other story), when one of my favorite movie stars came up to the table. I assumed given the high rollers I was with that she knew one of them, but that turned out to not be the case. I think she came up to this table because it was mostly empty and she wanted to see what was going on. I did a double take a few times and since she was standing next to me I was trying not be too overt because I wasn't really positive it was her. After about 10 minutes me trying to take a good look at her without being too silly, she put me out of my misery and whispered in my ear that she was who I thought she was.

    She asked if she could play and the table 'owner' was about to say 'no', when he looked at me nodding and mouth 'yes' and changed his mind. I think that is when the baseman opposite decided to finally look up. He did one of the surprised recognition faces and I almost laughed out loud.

    Anyway, she proceeded to play for about 20 mines (she did know craps fairly well), when her entourage showed up, which consisted of a few friends (didn't recognize any) and what was obviously a body guard and her casino host (whom I recognized). She played a few more minutes then left with them.

    The cool thing was she engaged me in conversation the whole time she was playing. It's easy to forget that these bigger than life stars are just human beings too :)

    My buddy who was on the other side of the stick missed the whole encounter. He was pretty focused on the craps as we were under some pressure being at the table (part of another story). So I was telling him the whole story laughing at him missing it.

    The story doesn't end there. The next night when we were walking to our seats at the restaurant, (same buddy, another buddy that just got in, and my host), she was at a table with a group of people, she saw me and smiled and I nodded to her. We were sitting a few tables over when her and her group were finished dinner she came over to our table called me by name (I do have a slightly unique name), and said thanks for the craps. It was a very classy thing to do.

    One more of the surrealistic things that seems to happen only in Vegas!

    I one time met a really really famous person in Vegas too. Totally a household name this person was. We had a great conversation and shared a couple drinks.

    Let's see. A female, famous celeb, likes Vegas, playes craps, has many "friends", a bodyguard, a host.
    ok, must be someone young, but over 21. not Julia Roberts nor Madonna nor Kim Kardashian. Not someone too easy to recognize, like Cher. Perhaps Lady Gaga? I know Celine is in Vegas.

    Forget about who she was.... I want to hear the story behind how you were invited to a reserved table with a bunch of high rollers........or am I just showing the degenerate gambler side of me?

    You nailed that on the head.

    Seriously though, what's the point of telling this story and not saying who it was?
