Lessons Learned......In Vegas

I like to learn and am always open to new experiences. So here are a few things I learned in Vegas this past weekend.

When flying in on a Friday night, be prepared to wait at least an hour in the taxi line to get to your hotel.

Regardless of how many Red Bulls you have, if you are exhausted. Nothing and I mean nothing will keep you awake.

Never, ever, walk the strip in flip flops. Just take my word for it.

Always take advantage of Happy Hour, and definitely take advantage of the 2 for 1 offer at the bar, hell if you won't drink the second drink, 9 times out of ten your bartender will.

After 2 for 1 Happy Hour at the bar, do not, I repeat do not go get ready for a night if the getting ready part requires shaving. Bleeding lessens the amount of alcohol in your blood stream. And I am not one to waste.

Chlorine and alcohol do not mix, neither do the Lazy River and a few cocktails. The around and around and around motion. Blurp.

When taking a camera, make sure that it is in your possession for the entirety of the trip. You do not want to get home and realize that you left your camera with your friends for the evening and see what they have decided to photograph.

Hair of the dog is a good rule to live by, a drink in the morning will make all your pains go away. Just don't attempt to walk a straight line. There is no straight line in Vegas.

And last but not least, never ever leave your group, its a jungle out there and you may never find them again. But the possibility of meeting a new attractive bachelor party group is very easy. :)

Lesson learned #47 - it pays to flirt with the bartenders in your casino - they will sometimes extend the 2 for 1 happy hour even after said hour has passed.

Whether or not it is a good idea for you to have 2 more beverages is entirely objective!

Hair of the dog? I have never heard that before.

Its an old wives tale, that it will cure the hang over to drink what got you sick.

Seeing as I have never seen you hung over or at a bar the next morning despite a hang over. I am not surprised you have never heard it.
