Chutes & Ladders: Vegas Edition

Somehow I have gone to Vegas three times this year. I came in April for the Freddie Awards. I visited in July for NBA Summer League. And now I'm here again. The Vegas baby, Vegas party line...

Amex LAS Loungin’

Ah and here I am. What a risk taker! I decided to let my Allegiant bags go round and around like a Flo Rida track while I eat and drink at the Amex Centurion...

Luxor Vegas: A Great Value in the Desert

Compared to my experience in Luxor, Egypt where I was ripped off at every corner, my two stays at the Luxor Casino in Vegas was much more positive. Let's start with my biggest gripe about Vegas, the hidden Uber pickup and drop off areas.

Excalibur Vegas: Not A Castle On The Cloud

What a s&*thole! Do not stay here. This hotel, to quote Charles Barkley, is turrible. The check-in for M Life Platinums is slow, the room is motel style with those sheets, and the entertainment is nonexistent.

MGM Grand Las Vegas: I’ll Take The Under

Overrated! Overrated! That's the familiar chant as guests march out of the MGM Grand. This mega hotel which is the third largest in the world has 6,852 rooms.

Uber Vegas: Capturing Pokémon

Greetings and salutations from Vegas. I'm at the Mandalay wave pool, the geriatric hangout for those who can't handle the previously documented pool party. Since I'm here for NBA Summer League as a basketball agent,...

Wet Republic: Too Much Pool Party

Greetings from the desert, my home for the rest of the week. I'm here for NBA Summer League, a spectacle I will chronicle at another time. Right now I'm blogging from the serene pool...
