The club I'm working on is in the Venetian Hotel. It won't be open until March. I'll be here at Christmas. We should get together.

I meant to say that prostitution is legal in Nevada.

Marc, I'm goin' to Vegas for Christmas (from one plastic commercial nightmare to another). You have to let me know where the bar/club/joint is so I can check it out.

Personally, I love Vegas. Old and new. I love the fake everything.

I stayed at the Paris hotel last time I was there. And wouldn't ya know it, there were tons french staying there. wtf?!?! You came 4 thousand miles for this???

Just had to say, I hate flying as well. I take the train everywhere. I've been to New Orleans 5 times via amtrak. I'm hoping to be able to splurge on the sleeper for my NOLA/East Coast trip in the spring. For the long stretches at least!!! How was your trip across?

I think Johnie Haliday's biggest claim to fame is the Jimi Hendrix Experience played their first gig opening for him in Oct. 66 at the Olympia in Paris.......Hendrix did very few opening gigs.
Hendrix and Absinthe, a nice combination to enjoy this evening.

I haven't been to Las Vegas, mostly because I suspect I would be disappointed after seeing it through Dr. Thompson's eyes.

I do have a Big Red Shark, tho...

Las Vegas has does not have legalized

Prostitution is not legal in the city limits, to
find a legal prostitute you must drive outside of
town. How are they going to turn it into a
Disneyland with gambling if you keep saying things
like that.

no, actually it lives in france in the personna
of johnie haliday, a frightening french "rocker" who loves las vegas, but had to fly french fans in when he gave his "dream concert" there, because
no one outside of france knows who the hell he is..."allumer le feu!" that, is kitch...

you are right. I look out of my 24th floor window in the Venetian Hotel (with it's gondolas and canals)
and I can see the the New York New York casino and,further off in the distance,the Eiffel Tower of the Paris casino. So, where's Las Vegas? Moldering in the grave with Frankie, Dino and one-eyed Sammy.

is this a surprise? flaming hills for everybody!
maybe they can add an absinthe parlor to the psuedo-paris...hey, but look on the bright side, between disneyworld/epcot and vegas, one never has to leave the usa again... everybody speaks english (well, almost) and you don't have to exchange your dollars...welcome to've been here all along...

Las Vegas has gambling and legalized prostitution. It's ripe for absinthe.

Vegas is plastic surrealism. Lots of spectacle, little fun. Old Vegas is hip, the new stuff is too sanitized, Disneyland for alcoholics.

Once you get past the glitter and neon, there's really nothing here, no soul and no character.

I've entered the seventh circle of Dante's hell. It's made of fiberglass and plywood.

I am spinning downward into the infinite abyss, poker chips flying out of my ass.
