    Thank goodness! I get a pass! Man that night running around in Vegas is one of the best times I've had there. And so was the epic 4th of July shenanigans last year. What they had in common is you an @luck.ofthe.draw were both there both times, and other good company both times as well! So maybe that's the secret to a good time in Vegas. I'm just sorry I missed out on the bottle of tequila and an earthquake story, which actually came up earlier today in conversation lol.

    Probably won't make Christmas this year because I'm stealing @luck.ofthe.draw for a new year's cruise booked through URComped, and we leave for Miami from here at 6AM a day or two after Christmas. But, let it be known that I am already booked for another Vegas Thanksgiving, and would be more than happy to provide more musical entertainment with wholesome Christmas themes like the tale of Steve, the average, lesser-known but still respectable reindeer. :headbang:

    They were good times. I'm sorry I made your not-yet-girl ghost you at Cosmo on 4th of July. I blame it on the alcohol. :drunk:

    That night with the tequila and the quakes was one for the books. LAWDY! I thought I was totally out of my mind drunk for a second at Sahara until I wobbled around a corner and saw Luck hanging onto her chair for dear life. Then I knew it was a quake. Did she tell you how the "bouncer" guy at Peppermill tried to make us "finish" the tequila before coming in? Luck's face was like she was asking, "Why do you want us to die in your parking lot?" :haha: Good times. Hopefully we will have times like that in Vegas again before I'm too old and you have to keep up with me on a rascal scooter. :wink2:

    Hey man, the Cosmo is the best - and last year's 4th of July was amazing.

    God that earthquake was insane. Coincidence that I was sitting on a Buffalo Diamond machine at the time? Haha :haha:

    Oh my god @Sonya we have to go back to Peppermill! :beer:

    Vegas Thanksgiving will be amazingggg! I definitely plan on trying to get out there in December too :wiggle:

    Caught back up to this. Another great report, and such a beaming smile from you @luck.ofthe.draw! I'm disappointed you didn't find those cute and diabolical gators though. Maybe next time! Haha

    Thank you for the great report - both of you! It's keeping me moderately sane when I am not going anywhere on vacation.

    Now about that grasshopper.......on the rocks? In Wisconsin they are a thick blended ice cream drink. Think along the lines of a Wendy's frosty - thick, cold but full of mint & alcohol!!!

    Yes they were rocks. It sounds like you're describing a shamrock shake with vodka in it. I wouldnt have had that. Too rich for my 3am taste!
