    In 2006 i think, I got wasted on Freemont and slept under one of the stages for about 4 hrs. My back and shoulder hurt for weeks after. And i got a weird rash on my leg that required a prescription from my Doc when I got home.
    Younger me was an idiot...

    Our city bus broke down in the heat in front of NYNY. The five foot tall bus driver tried to keep us on the 110 degree bus but that wasn’t happening. Some people tried to climb the spiked fence, but I remembered that the next bus stop was across Tropicana in front of Excalibur where there would be an opening. I timed the traffic light and shouted, “we need to cross to Excalibur and if we all stick together most of us will survive!” And about thirty people decided to trust my leadership abilities and follow me to safety.

    My best Las Vegas awesome dumb story:

    1982-Took a $300 p/p junket from JFK, free drinks the whole flight. Drank 11 martinis before landing. Shuttle dropped half the passengers of at Hacienda before going to Caesars. Everyone gave them a good sendoff (Hope you win a lot of money, hope the roof doesn't leak too bad) as the whole flight was pretty plastered. They gave us a honeymoon suite with heart shaped bed, wet bar, baby grand, fountain and mirror on ceiling over the bed. Not really a suite but over the top room. She said let's go get married, I said "I'm drunk" she said "So what".

    So we called The Candlelight Wedding Chapel (first wedding chapel in Las Vegas with an 800#) and they sent a limo to get us. Took us to city hall for the $25 license and then to the chapel. Rented an organist, minister and witnesses.

    Let us borrow an old, unused new blue garter. Then said the vows right across the boulevard from the largest neon clown in the world. Turned out to be portentous.

    Limo going back dropped us at Flamingo by mistake, so went inside. My bride in wedding dress, and me in the only suit I owned bought in at craps for $25 each. I rolled for 45 minutes and we won about $300 each?! Has to be about 50 people trying to get in on the roll. Got a standing ovation (well there were no chairs) when I sevened, Appreciative gamblers sent 5 black chips our way. We declined the offer from 2 hookers to "come home" with us. Over the bed mirror was dumb, but awesome.

    Respect. So much left out between the sentences that I can hear. Ten years before I first got to Vegas, just makes me wish I’d gone sooner.

    Wut, no one else here has ever gotten their inner Hunter S. Thompson on out on the Las Vegas Strip??

    I've been known to have taken a bit too much advice from attorneys when I've been out there:D

    I do keep it out of the hotel rooms though, I like to keep things clean and prefer lawyers who specialize in the psychedelic end of the practice (no amyls).

    It is, after all, "Bat Country".

    Dad had a running tradition of going to Vegas, with my Brother and I, for the superbowl every year. Dad died in 2014. We had dad cremated. A few months later I took a good portion of his ashes on a Southwest flight to Vegas. I dumped half of the ashes off the observation tower at the top of the Stratosphere , at night, when no one was looking. Ashes rained down over the city and flew towards downtown, as that was the way the wind was blowing. It was a good sign as we saw numerous superbowls at the Golden Nugget back in the day. Later that night I was shit faced drunk and discretely sprinkled the remaining ashes all over the casino floor at the Venetian at like 2am. We saw a bunch of superbowls at the Venetian with Dad.

    Brother and I have continued the superbowl tradition without dad, but he is there in spirit, every time we go.

    I was lucky enough to get a Legacy Brick right at the main entrance of the new Allegiant Stadium. Our legacy will live on in Sin City, long after brother and I are gone. RIP Dad.

    I'm not going to mention the dumbest thing I ever did in Vegas since I might meet some of the board members sometime and I don't want to get laughed at.

    So, the second dumbest thing I ever did....
    We decided to cross the strip without using the crosswalk near Harrah's. This was like 7AM so light traffic. We made it to the median, which was planted with shrubs in that area. When it looked clear to cross the other lanes we ran out between the bushes only to see a car rounding the curve doing at least 100 mph. We were within feet of being killed and jumped back just in time. My gaming buddy almost went into shock and we have never tried to cross the strip without a light since then.

    I thought the lady who agreed to dance on my lap for money liked me for me.

    One night I had a little to much to drink at Cosmo I decided to start running up the wrong way to the escalators. It was pretty funny because at the first one I'm up top and my buddy and security are at the bottom and they are telling me to just come back down and nothing will happen. Needless to say this drunk guy wasn't having any of that so security comes up and I go running up more, no idea where I am but it's obviously blocked off, I ended up at the pools. I was on the phone with my buddy telling him I have no idea where I'm at and he's having fun with it saying security is after me and there are tons looking for me and they have everything surrounded while im surrounded by pools and hot tubs I'm telling him I wish I had a girl up here I would be making out with her right now...

    Silly but funny at the time..
