Bernie Sanders playing VP at GVR.
That could have been Walter the puppet too. They have the same frown and hair line.
In June, stood in line in front of Thaddeus Young at the Wynn (NBA player)...Summer time you can see NBA players everywhere
Especially at the Wynn, since the national teams stay there. I recall one time when DeMarcus Cousins got in an elevator with me and a european tourist. Cousins legitimately occupied half the elevator and the poor tourist just stared at him the whole time. I don't think he had ever seen a human so large, lol
We stayed at the Wynn several years ago when Team USA was there.....saw Kevin Durant, Andre Iguadala, John Wall, James Harden, Coach K, Steve Wojo, and played poker with Jim Boeheim for several hours (I think I'm the only one that even knew who he was).
It’s been 20 years, but my sister and I were leaving MGM going up the escalators by the old Rain Forest Cafe and I see Gene Simmons, Shannon Tweed and the kids going down the escalator. Sis and I get to the top and I said “let’s go, that was Gene Simmons!” ( I’m a big KISS fan). She says who is Gene Simmons......I said really? The down escalator wasn’t working and we had heels in so he probably heard us clip clopping down the stairs. The family was ahead of him so sis and I flanked him and I looked up and said hello. He said hello. I asked if I might have seen him in concert in Austin a few years back, he said yes. I said are you Gene Simmons, he said yes. I asked him for an autograph, then I proceeded to take pen and paper out of my purse. BUT I had to take a disposable camera out first, so dumb me didn’t even think, I put the camera back and gave him the paper. Hours later I looked at sis and said “I’m a dumbass, I had the camera in my hand”. That was before cell phones had cameras. He was actually very nice.
I have heard some real Dbag stories about him, glad your encounter was good
Saw vinny playing craps at linq on 10/26. Guess he's filming a new show. Later that night at osheas I saw a girl walking thru they were filming. Not one of the famous ones from Jersey shore.
Saw Billy Gibbons having dinner at Julian Serrano in June with his wife.
saw Dr J coming out of the Aria sky suites last year.
I haven’t been on in a long time, but it occurred to me I have a pic for this thread. Was in Mirage in June for dinner buffet then was walking to Love and I saw this guy-
Jerry! The former mayor of my home town of Cincinnati Ohio. lol
This past weekend I was at the MGM before the Canelo fight, saw Ron Artest also known as Metta World Peace ( former NBA player ) and also Floyd Mayweather Sr.
Thanks for that, I was just going to ask.
Jerry Springer- more known as a talk show host than as mayor- but yes to both
Thanks. I didn't recognize him either. I wasn't sure who was the celebrity and who was the VMBer.
I haven't watched his show in some time. Guests throwing chairs at each other gets old very quickly.
Whenever somebody asks me where I am from, and i say Cincinnati, Pete Rose or Jerry Springer always seem to get mentioned.
Funny, I mostly think of this guy.
I always think of the Reds,the Bengals and WKRP..
Mmmmm Skyline Chili
WKRP for sure.
