police-comfortInstead of getting in my cab, this guy walks around to my window and says, “Can you get me to the airport in ten minutes?”

I quickly consider a multitude of factors like

(A) where I am,1

(D) what day it is,4

(E) what time it is,5

(F) how much traffic will there be,6

(G) how much I want this ride,7

(H) what I need to say to get it,8

(I) what will happen if I take longer than ten minutes,9

(J) how big my tip will be if I miraculously get him there in time,10

(K) what are the most important details of this story that I may forget to mention,11 and

A little while back I decided that it was time to start working on a new Las Vegas blog project that caters to writing reviews about Las Vegas restaurants, hotels, and the normal sort of thing, but I didn’t want it to be limited to just Las Vegas reviews.  I’m seriously into wine.  It’s something that I am very passionate about.  So much so, in fact, I’ve done a lot of traveling that’s just about increasing my wine knowledge and experiences with wine and food, from Napa to the Rhone Valley in France and back.  I’m at the point now where I know that I can share a lot about wines and foods in a way that will not only be educational, but could help other people really understand what it is that they like and how to select wines they run across and have a pretty good idea whether they will like it or not.

Pink Taco logoFree… the most beautiful word in the English language.  Well, it might be a recession and yes, you can find deals, but free — that’s a whole ‘nuther animal!  I was at the Hard Rock Hotel walking from the parking garage yesterday, and when I walked past The Pink Taco (home of the world famous “wet burrito”) I saw a sign with a delicious-looking pink margarita.  I suddenly realized what I was reading:  Every Thursday from five to seven p.m., girls who show up wearing pink drink free – free pink margaritas!
