I spent Saturday afternoon out in Pahrump, Nevada, at the Sin City Chamber of Commerce’s annual picnic, chili cook-off, and hoe-down (it’s at the Chicken Ranch, so, har-har!) and I was very, very tired when I made it home to Vegas Saturday night.

Doodlebops Las VegasWhat the hell is a Doodlebop? Is it some new form of mind-altering drug ruining our youth? Does it make you dress in painfully-colored clothing and frolic like it’s Pride Parade Day in San Francisco? Why do I keep hearing about how “huge Doodlebops are” when I’ve never personally experienced a Doodlebop.  I mean, let’s face it, if something’s “huge” around here… I’d know about it!
