It's September 2 and Labor Day weekend. We're about to enter into the Fall Wedding season. That means we just ended the Summer Bachelor Party season. Last week, I went to Las Vegas for Blake's bachelor party. Can't really say here everything that happened, but I will mention that I stayed on the town longer in Vegas than any other night in my life. Mark it down-- August 25 into August 26th, I was awake in Vegas until 7:30 a.m. Not only was the sun rising-- it was up. Legitimately, it was Saturday.

Make note of the photo above. It's taken from Penthouse row at the Imperial Palace. By the end of 2007, this view will no longer be possible, as the IP, as it is affectionately called, will no longer exist. Blake is in the background, and in the foreground is Scott Eckert, Blake's best man.

I did alright in Vegas. In my previous trip with Paul McNeeley and Wes, I played only Black Jack. However, I was very intrigued by 3-card poker, which I watched Wes play. I tipped my toe into the 3-card poker arena on Friday afternoon in Vegas, only to quit after losing too much. In fact, the entire crew lost enough that first afternoon that we all retreated to the Penthouse suite and played Texas Hold 'Em and "Inbetween" with chips worth a quarter a piece. Vegas baby! (I guess?)
