Default OT: Just got back from Vegas....

...a few hours ago. It was an interesting week. There was a HUGE show in town, with about 50,000 people in town for New Technology and Gadgets. I was in town with Aggressor 25 attending a different smaller show.

I was talking with a few folks, and heard that Bill Gates and Bruce Willis of all people, were up playing poker until wee hours at the Aladdin.

And top that off, as I am walking out of the Bellagio last night, already had my fill of the Blackjack tables; Ray Liotta walks in, and starts playing Blackjack with his Girlfriend. I dropped a few more dollars down on the table, and starting playing again, with another guy at our table. We sat there for about another 90 minutes, and it really was a blast. He was really cool and laid back, and we BS'd about a bunch of stuff, but mainly the dealer that was taking us all to town. It was REALLY cool to meet him, and worth the bucks I lost at the table. Super nice guy.

Every time you goto Vegas you can never be suprised at who you will see...I played Blackjack with George Strait one day and had no idea it was him because he was wearing a baseball hat and sunglasses. Hung out with Drew Carey and Ryan Stiles and had no idea who they were. I thought they were just two funny as hell guys

Vegas is a cool place to go, I bought VIP status at RIO, Hard Rock, Bellagio, and Venetion...I have'nt gone in a few weeks and won't be back until the 30th if I can stay good....Glad you had a great time!!!

I met Ray Liotta a long time ago, shortly after Goodfellas came out. Really nice guy.
Last time I was in Vegas, George Clooney sat down at the blackjack table I was at. I was at the Bellagio while they were filming "Oceans Eleven," and everyone in the movie seemed to hang out like regualr people at night, except for Julia Roberts.

I work at the Bellagio and see these type of people all the time. Just the other day (thurdsday)Michael Jordan and charles oakley were palying BJ at 4am and then left with just the two of them. The employees at the Bellagio just go about there normal day. You don't see any employee bothering any celeb and I think that is why they come in here. when I go to other Casinos the staff always seems to be hanging around the celebs

Ray Liotta was in an HBO movie I like, Im thinking it was called NO ESCAPE or something. Great movie.

I stayed at the Excalibur. Pretty good location.
I seen a a crew filming something, but didnt run into anyone special. For some reason, you can drink 24-7 out there and it seems normal. I would get up in the morning and start drinking. It was my first time out there, and our flight came in at like 1 am. Everyone went to bed right away! I was in Vegas, I stayed up alone and drank till I couldnt read my video poker screen anymore!

You can also have a OPEN container on the strip only!!
That means you can walk ,NOT drive, the whole strip area and drink whatever you want. Also the hookers are out late pm/ early am walking the strip for those drunk fools
