    Whenever I'm in Vegas, I always:

    1. Make sure to remember that a bad day in Vegas is better than the best days at work.
    2. Forget about time in a traditional sense and just do what my body tells me. If it tells me to have 10 drinks before noon? Beer me. Nap sounding good? I'm gonna take it. Tons of garbage food at 3:00 am? Time for some grindage. It's a 24/7 town and the only time I have to worry about is when my flight leaves.
    3. My last dinner is always a 16oz. or larger steak, lobster, and 4-5 Woodford Reserves on the rocks.

    .....get a little sad when it's time to check in for my flight back home.
    That last 24 hours is always bittersweet.

    ! - Go to a buffet. Breakfast only and usually just once per trip. Not a buffer guy.

    2 - Have a martini before dinner. I like gin, but I usually drink wine or scotch. There's
    just something relaxing about that drink before dinner. I just wish I could find my
    favorite gin. It's Crater Lake gin from Oregon. They infuse the juniper berry after
    distilling instead of mashing it. Great taste and it's 94 proof, so it's good for martinis.

    ~ drink cocktails at Cosmopolitan while I fight it out with kitty glitter, .25 keno and nickel stoopid times pay.

    ~ take a swing and usually miss in a hi limit room or 2

    ~ wear heels or something glittery

    ~ get so little sleep that at some point I think I “feel” my heart murmur

    ~ lose something besides money. Usually glasses or a room key.
