    Ooh fun!! Which hometown? If it's the Bay Area, it sounds like you got there not long after I left. I left in Summer 2001. I miss it sometimes. And other times I wonder why I didn't leave sooner. :)

    @Sonya I didn't know you had more than one hometown. I am thinking of Saratoga, the town which still has insufficient sidewalks and essentially no street lights. I am sure there were a lot more fruit orchards in your day.

    I'm not sure I'd want to meet anyone from a board.

    It seems like all you people do is gamble, drink and eat.

    If I were to meet, I'd have to rearrange my very structured Vegas schedule of gambling, drinking and eat-HEY! Waaaaaaait a minute!

    Maybe this meet thing wouldn't be so bad:poker::drunk::feedme::wave:

    Thanks @ffejry ! I think that would be great! Since we're really not that far apart in distance, hopefully we will meet up sometime at 4 Winds or Blue Chip!

    And you are right, there are so many amazing people on this site!

    Thanks! Hopefully, we’ll meet sometime! You have a great list. I have fun memories of the VMB’ers I’ve met in the past and would meet up with them anytime. We all have the love of visiting Las Vegas in common. I would also add lots of others to that list too. Specifically, @Valgal. Something about her posts always makes me think about my very best friend who lives 750+ miles away from me who I only get to see 7 or 8 times a year.

    In my defense, I would like to say that no deaths, injuries, or crime scenes associated to me or my friends have resulted in actual convictions.

    You have a good point!
    I am even more boring as I only do 1 of the things you listed, namely gambling.
    But I still love to meet everyone nonetheless.

    Full disclosure: I rarely drink alcohol and usually only eat once a day. But that doesn't make for much of a joke.

    But meeting is always a good thing.

    I'd like to meet everyone really!

    I've met some awesome people off here already and hope that continues :)

    I do have a soft spot for @LolaDoggie as we share a love of kitties and a filthy sense of humor. Oh and maybe a smidge of sarcasm.

    But theres lots of names I could put out there! Best. Forum. Ever.

    I’ve met several of the OG’s from back in the early 2000’s- even had a relationship with one.

    I ALMOST met @vegasmacker several years ago!

    From the current crew- @@ffejry and @notfromconcentrate sound like they’d be right up my alley.

    @breanna61 -since we’ve “known”each other for years, and @FormallyTD - so I can introduce him to Kahlua, who’s not black.

    Also, the Queen herself, Sonya. She does such a great job here, I'd like to buy her a cocktail. And Joe, who likes to roll downtown. I'd love to watch him work.

    Okay I've tried to do this post like five times but I have a horrible memory for names and it's giving me anxiety, so lets just say if I have met you, I adored you...I have yet to meet anyone from this board (in the WHOLE two meet ups I've done) that I didn't fall in love with.
    I have a bunch of people that I would love to meet up with but again my memory for names cannot allow me to list everyone... @Gaggles and JR, @notfromconcentrate , @ardee , @Breeze147 , @tringlomane , @FormallyTD , @breanna61 , @Valgal and there are tons more that I can't recall in my peabrain right now but basically everyone!
    And if you are in Vegas Nov 16-22 you can make this my reality!!! I'm really good at buying drinks! :headbang::headbang:
