Just got back from Chicago. Was there for my dear friend Lindsay's wedding. Here are some random pics from the week. More to come.
Yesterday I got to experience Mirage's "Trainer for a Day" program. The verdict: dolphins are awesome. I know this isn't news, but it's worth restating. Oddly, the experience made me miss my dog Fruvous. Anyway, I'm going to write about it for Las Vegas Weekly (in a week or two)....in 200-300 words, somehow. :)
Oh, BTW, that third shot of the three dolphins jumping...the one that should go on a TrapperKeeper...that's what the dolphins did after I extended my right arm and brushed it to the right. In other words, I'm taking credit for their beauty. :)

Okay, I just uploaded all my iPhone pictures to my computer from the past few months. Took this one at a New York pizza place...a block from Times Square. How delicious do these guys look? And how amazing is the iphone camera? Awesomeness all around.
(Tasted very good too...got the mushroom and goat cheese slice...)
Played 2-4 limit poker at the Palms last night. I was supposed to go to bed early (so I could get on schedule for my trip to Chicago tomorrow)...but...at 2AM this group of very nice, very fun guys and girls showed up, pretty drunk, virtually BEGGING me to take their money. So I stayed there until SIX THIRTY doing just that. And honestly, I got the sense that they had as much fun as I did. Also, a drunk Australian from the MoTown show at Imperial Palace. Also, some New Jersey/Italian guy who the table dubbed "Rocky." Also, a clothing designer who looked JUST like John McEnroe.
Funnest table ever.
