Vegas Bound

The wait is almost over. Tomorrow I head out with my friend to Vegas for Barry's Birthday Bash. It's been a crazy, hectic week here and I'll be glad to have a few days for some R and R, and of course, some Manilow magic.

I've been all about the lists this week. And I'm not usually a "list maker". But I got to thinking...if I made a list for why I find myself on a plane headed to Vegas time after time when there are so many other fabulous destinations in this world, what would it look like?

TOP TEN REASONS WHY LAS VEGAS IS ON THE TOP OF MY TRAVEL LIST:

10.
Where else can you stay up all night and be entertained non-stop?
9.
It's the best place I know of for "human theatre" (def: watching people drama for at least 90 minutes)
8.
There is always something new and different to explore because the city is always changing
7.
If you're lucky you can pay for your trip with one pull of a slot machine (note: this is a RARE occurence but has happened to me on occasion. also note: I usually leave depositing more than I withdrew)
6.
You never know what cab driver you will draw at the airport (note: it' s like a lottery of samplings from all over the world: Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and even the good old USA)
5.
The entertainment at the Hilton (human theater) always provides for mounds of blogging material
4.
Where else can you find Blue Men, Phantoms, acrobats in the sky and water, comedians, magicians, musicians, wax figures, gondolas, classic car collections, rockers, crooners, female impersonators and strippers all within walking distance of your hotel?
3.
It's the city with the brightest lights, the flashiest entertainment, and the most extravagant accommodations
2.
The culinary samplings along a one mile strip provide a plethora of tastes for any pallet (note: this is number 2 for me--duh)

and...the number 1 reason why Las Vegas is my prefered travel destination:



BARRY MANILOW (duh...)


Here's to Las Vegas, it's one of a kind..here's to the smiles all around!
