Vegas?

Post by AntonArkydivich » Sat Dec 27, 2014 11:43 pm

Anyone gonna be in Vegas on New Year's Eve and/or the day after?

I haven't been to that shit-show since I was trying to get a basketball scholarship in high school, and years later, I figure it's time to go back, and would love nothing more than to spend it with some brothers and sisters in arms,

I've got a buddy out that way, but he's spending time with his mother for the holidays from Illinois. I'm really debating pointing the 'Stang westards and heading over there, maybe on the second (band gig on the first), but 1: Don't know if he'd appreciate me popping in unexpected from St. Louis, and 2: I'm in no position to be hitting the casinos, and if I can't do that, why go?

If I decide to do so, I'll hit you up.

Boys, when the question is "Vegas?", the answer should always be "FUCK YES!"

Amen, Dear Booze, Amen.

You wrote about this Vegas and it kicked some arse.

Well Mistah, I hope those boys Anton and Brandon both make it to Vegas and return with a tale or two to share.

Something tells me I won't, but who knows.

I certainly plan to get out there this summer, though.

Change of plans, for the better. Metro's free in LA tonight. My friend's wife's coworker (double-checked for accuracy) has admitted he has more booze then he knows what to do with at his house, and to bring all comers, followed by a train into the city.

Whoever sobers up first in the morning gets to drive to Vegas.

May the Good Lord have mercy on my liver. I have a suspicion it's gonna be one of those benders you have to keep a pocket journal so you actually have memories.

God speed to you. Looking forward to the tales. Try to find time to post drunk. See you on the other side.

Well, did you make it? How was it? What kind of trouble did you find?

Ah, my apologies for the delay.

I did not make it on New Years, that was spent in Los Angeles. With a couple of bums drinking beers on 5th street. That place gets shady at night. I did make it to Vegas the next day.

Honestly, it was as low-key as Vegas can be. Drank a fifth of Wild Turkey 101, got in a friendly brawl with a lawyer from Harvard (ended with him buying drinks for me and bumming smokes), and just had a nice overall time.

Woke up the next morning and asked for a recap. My friend rolls over in bed and asks with surprise, "You don't remember the ice?"

And then it came back to me.

See, I grew up in Alaska, as did my wife, and my buddy is from the USSR. So while they were giving me shit about something silly I said, I went out into the hall, got a large bucket of ice, and proceeded to sling it around the hotel room while yelling about the "wrath of winter come to Vegas" and that I was a cold wind sent to chastise them. This was preceded minutes before by my friend's wife remarking that she was amazed how coherent I was after all I had drank.

I showed her.

Sorry it wasn't a better story, but I didn't have enough time to get into real trouble.

It sounds like you have the workings of a good story going on, you just need to embellish it a wee bit (throw in a few Vikings, a one-eyed giant and a treasure map and you'll have it nailed, my friend).

Anyway, I'm glad to hear that you had a good time over the holidays.

Keep on keeping-on.

Indeed. A nice tale about the Harvard Attorney and the basis of your fight (perhaps) over the outcome over a badly called "hit" call at the blackjack table - where you won (of course) is a good start.

Either way, we all look forward to hearing more of your drunken adventures, In Vegas and elsewhere.

Happy New Year.

And the Aardvark. Don't forget to include the Aardvark. All the best rolling brown-out stories have to have an Aardvark or Giant Sloth (or at a push, a Komodo Dragon Rodeo) in them.
