Last Minute Vegas Trip
Jessica asked if I was up for going to Vegas about 3 days before the planned takeoff date. It was Valentine’s Day weekend, and it’s not like I had any plans, so of course I said yes.
We booked a room, rented a car and we’re off on Friday evening. It took us about 5 hours to get there due to some very bad traffic, but we made it and started drinking right away. Breakfast at like 5am, then bed, then up to drinking and a buffet before more drinking and then Tao nightclub.
Tao was a blast because I met Jamie, who took us to his private VIP booth and offered us all as much of the bottle service as we wanted. I can’t complain about the night cos I ended up meeting some cool new people.
Last Tuesday afternoon was the yearly management team lunch and drinks. This was my first one in attendance and I must say I drank a tad too much but ultimately had a blast. I wasn’t the one that was most drunk though, so yay me!
Joke after joke was told. My boldness with my raunchy jokes emerged once I got comfortable enough (and boozed up I might add) to tell them, which surprisingly was very often. Once they started laughing, I couldn’t stop! Another round was bought before we called it a night!
I would say I can’t wait to see how next years managers lunch goes, but one never knows what can happen in a year.
Earlier this week plans arose to head to Oktoberfest at the Alpine Village. Having never been and always wanting to check it out, I bought my ticket. I headed out with Gabriel and my beer loving and overall awesome gal friend, Lulu.
Beer after beer after beer continued while singing along and cheering with the crowd. My only complain about the event was their minimal selection of beer. They did have a Pilsener in selection, so I wasn’t too mad. Gabriel bought a chicken dinner, and the chicken was bland. Surprisingly their side dishes had more flavor and were better tasting than the chicken.
More booze was bought and we met up with other friends who arrived later into the night. In the end I enjoyed the event for the $20 admission price. The night ended with Belgium Waffles, and Lulu and I wouldn’t have had it end any other way!
Vegas: Part 1
Almost 2 weeks ago I headed with co workers to Vegas! I thought the best times in Vegas were had when I last went a few years ago, but I was dead wrong!!
I got Friday off of work, and we took off around 11am. We picked up friends, grubbed at some sandwich place, then proceeded NorthEast to Sin City. We made a pit stop in Baker to buy some Beef Jerky at Alien Fresh Jerky.
Upon our purchases (including the Colon Cleaner Hot jerky) we proceeded the final trek to Vegas. Laury has the hook ups, and got us upgraded to a Suite at the Encore. The full stay was covered and we paid nothing! Awesome!!!
We had some spectacular views! While waiting for our final friend to arrive via flight, we were getting our pre partying started! We ventured off to Fat Tuesday to get Vegas started right!
Many shots and drinks, plus the half yard piña colada had us really buzzed already. We were in no condition to pick up Christine, so she had to take a cab ride.
Upon her arrival, we started drinking and began getting ready for the first nights festivities. Laury had met a promoter on our Fat Tuesday adventure and we got hook ups to head to Tryst nightclub in our own Casino. We all got dressed, drank more and headed out for the night.
Every time I’ve previously gone to Vegas, I’ve never gone out to the clubs. We always just pre drink, gamble, drink out on the strip, wall around, drink some more, eat and then drink some more. The clubs gave me a whole new experience and appreciation for Vegas. Guys may have to pay, (and in some instances north of $50, but with fun people, it’s SO worth it) and once we got in, we drank way more than we should have, danced the night away and had a blast. Vegas clubs are just a sight to see. I was surprised at the decor and ambiance.
I don’t recall what time it was when we left, but we headed out and wandered the casino for a bit. When we got to the suite, I remember wanting to eat. I had told Yoyce about a cheap foot long hot dog that they had close by and how we should go cos I was craving one (enter penis jokes here).
I didn’t have to really convince anyone cos all but 2 of the 7 of is went. I treated the lot that night and thankfully because of that late night (……errrr early morning?) adventure, I didn’t wake up with a hangover!
We proceeded back to the room in the wee hours of the morning, tired and drunk. As we all fell asleep I couldn’t help but imagine what was in store for us the next day…
