Our mayor, Oscar Goodman, is a man with both a colorful past and a colorful present. Goodman became widely known for representing mafia enforcer Tony “The Ant” Spilotro back in the day (Joe Pesci played the screen version of Tony Spilotro in “Casino” with not much but the name changed.) More recently he was given national attention for telling a class of fourth grade students if he were lost on a deserted island he’d like to have his favorite bottle of gin with him, because he really enjoys drinking, apparently, as he listed to the same group of kids “drinking” among his hobbies. He says he’s the George Washington of mayors, in that he can not tell a lie. Hell, I have to say – honesty is something refreshing in any politician, even if he might not be accused of speaking to his audience with the greatest sense of appropriateness.

(…but you should do anyway!)

Cabbies in Las Vegas are usually only interested in suggesting entertainment that they have a vested interest in. They get kickbacks from clubs, et cetera, when they drop off a fare at the establishment, in addition to the cab fee and tip. This is not a slight to the cabby – it’s simply the business they are in. If you press them for suggestions for dining or atypical entertainment I’m sure they’ll come up with something for you, but I decided to make a quick list of a couple of things I enjoy here in Las Vegas that a cabby would probably never think to suggest to you…

Whew. I’m half-way back to “normal” – normal for me at least 😉

Thursday night we had several stops we wanted to make. After playing some poker and earning a quick couple’a bucks, we headed for Tryst (at Wynn) where we met up with some friends and skirted a pretty crazy line at the door. (The door staff and hosts at Tryst always seem to be good about taking care of locals once you get to know them, in my experience.) Not only was CES winding down and AVN’s porn convention going on, it was also Tryst’s one year anniversary party. The crowd was incredible – what a gorgeously naughty group of people!

Tonight I’m going to be catching some parties and after-parties associated with the Adult Entertainment Expo. The crew of usual suspects will be starting off at Tryst at the Wynn Resort and progressing across town, in all likelihood stopping through a party going on at Minxx. Tera Patrick is hosting at party at Tao so I’ll probably go through there too. After that, the world is our oyster. Thursdays are a good night for partying in Las Vegas and tonight should be particularly good. Sleep is the enemy. >:]

Tomorrow morning it’s ski time. Snow is in the forecast for all of Friday in Las Vegas, particular at altitude.
