Hey, this is my ode to all things awesome. They mostly will be in San Francisco, because I have a job that keeps me here. I love food, booze, and odd things. I am ambivalent about serial commas. But this is about trying new things so let's get moving on that to-do list...
So you found me. This my little blog, which is concerned with all the wonderful things you can eat, drink and do in life.

Bare at The Mirage in Las Vegas: Tops-down Pool Party
OK, so I'm not a baller. I don't gamble more than 20 bucks and I think I look my best after I've gone for a long walk on a foggy day. But sometimes you gotta roll big. And I did a few weekends ago in Vegas with my girlfriends. We went clubbing at Bank, ordered room service at 3am, woke up and went to a "European-style" sunbathing pool party. These pool parties are thing to do in Vegas these days. You party in the daytime. And pay money to get a cabana and then some chicks take off their tops. Note to NV strippers: If you spent lots of money on them they should not be cock-eyed and if they are then why are you showing them? If they are natural I have no issue with some sag, a little wear and tear, I understand. I am in my 30s. I know about the gravity of the situation. But really, ladies, if they aren't great, keep 'em peeking out. A little mystery goes a long way.
OK, so back to the story. I started with a mojito and only got a coffee about an hour later, because I had to leave the premises to get a coffee, because they only served booze, water and some juices. Tough stuff being a baller. Our cabana required we spend $1,000 that day in food and beverage service. They did not have a rental fee like other spots. Our waitress was super cool and kept the mojitos coming--even letting us know that they were running low on mix at one point so we could get a few more pitchers into our mini fridge. Yeah, we had our own fridge and misters and fans that blew everywhere except for on my beautifully voluptuous and pasty body. Drinks were yummy and I liked their lobster tacos so much I almost made out with one of them. The music was popular stuff that you somehow know from having Pandora on at work. So what's the deal?
Get a big group and get the cabana. If you are going with your sweetie then just reserve chairs--although girls can get free passes by just walking around and looking good at The Mirage. People are not acting up--so if you want to change the rules of the champagne room go to the other bigger pool parties. Security did give some static about me sleeping in the cabana corner. Um, it is warm and my skin is made for the tundra so yeah I got sleepy. Jeez. The people watching was fairly spectacular, especially as well some people who want to flaunt it maybe shouldn't. It wasn't car wrecks, but some could have used a different plan of attack. All in all, it was a cool way to spend the day. Oh and I did show mine...and they are magnificent!
