Viva Las Vegas!

I am not guaranteeing the coherence of this post considering that I'm beyond exhausted and sick. But all I have to say is WOW. For those of you that have been to Las Vegas, well I guess I'm sure you know what I'm talking about, but for those who haven't, well let me tell you it's something else. My first impression...was.. HELLO TACKYVILLE! Women in 2 piece baby blue velour suits - let me mention that these women were about 50 years old, also women wearing 2 piece matching zebra suits. My eyes still hurt from that incidence. The music playing, the lights, the $3.00 buffets, the Hooters Hotel, the All-You-Can-Eat restaurants and not to mention the $9.99 steaks.

To my surprise, all those that work in Vegas are probably the most friendly people ever. A special hand of applause to the cab drivers who always asked me how I was doing and where I was from. I was pleasantly surprised by their friendliness. They scored big points!

As for the city as a whole, I would never survive more than a weekend. Dinner at the Wynn, big partying at Marquee (in the new Cosmopolitan hotel - which is absolutely BEAUTIFUL), meeting all sorts of people, quite the lifestyle, but then again, nothing that someone can do for a long period of time! To most of you men out there, if you haven't been, you'll love it! Party central. And for you women, well, lets just say, you can pack EXTREMELY light if you want to party hard. Less is...really less. I was wearing a long sleeve shirt with my sleeves pulled back, pair of dark jeans and a great pair of black booties I got for Christmas. I also had a jacket, because it was only 8 Celcius at night...I was SUPER underdressed... or overdressed, meaning I was wearing WAY too much. I joked with my group that I could take off my jeans (my shirt barely covered my bum) and that I would fit right in. But note to the ladies, I dont suggest the slutty wear. You attract what you project. Hello Douche. Maybe not as dressed as I was (I was there with work people, as if I was going to put on my black strapless dress....) But pretty dress, great shoes (or booties if it's cold) works perfectly. You can be sexy without having your ass come out of your overly long tube top you chose to wore as your dress.

And when in Vegas, you need to fork out the moula moula. I met a guy who spent $3,000 on a booth at Marquee.. Yes you read right, 3 thousand dollars!!! Vegas is like a playground for all ballers, an exit for all those that always wanted to be someone they couldn't and an escape from all that 9 to 5 stuff.

And of course, the whole purpose for going to that show was for the CES show which was so interesting. Keep your eyes open for a new post about all the great stuff I spotted at the show. I was quite impressed!

Until then, I think I need to sleep for 2 days straight to catch up on all my lost sleep!

If you have been to Vegas and seen something amazing, please let me know in the comments below. I was only there for 24 hours, so Im really not a great source. But if you have, and been to an excellent restaurant or other venue, or show, or anything, let us know!

And in the great words of the great Elvis - thank you very muchhh.

Now, time to sleep.
