Will and i have known each other since the LA MEET UP and DEATH VALLEY DAY TRIP. erin i have known since LA MEET UP as well. john and i have known each other having late night wings at a bar.
SORRY FOR THE BLURRY PHOTOS....DIGI CAM WILL BE IN HOSPITAL SOON :)
I get a call from Tracy that they are at my gate. I waited for them outside my house so that they can easily find me. We all waved to welcome each other. Angel drove it in my garage. I told her it would be an extra charge to park in my garage LOL.
We all gave each a big hug. I helped them bring it there 2343243lbs. of luggage LOL. They both immediately crashed on my â€ścomfyâ€ť couch. We talked and laughed cuz I was a â€ścrack headâ€ť againâ€¦.LOL
Earlier today I was on TB, I was reading the TB forum. I misunderstood what it says. I thought Angel was staying at a friendâ€™s house and she was going to drop off Tracy at my house.
They arrived at 4pm-ish. We had to get ready for â€śPRE TB MEET UP at Diabloâ€™s cantina at 6:45pm. I offered to also pick up Julz(mzjulz85) at her friendâ€™s house. The good thing is, her friend lives 10mins from me. It was no problem to pick julz up. We were running late. I got the addy to the house. Tracy was my GPS. I called her TRACY TRACYâ€¦â€¦get it?!?!?! LOL.
It was dark in the neighborhood. I kept veering to the right to read the signs.
Julz first impression of us was laughing hysterically in the car. I got out of the car and gave her a big hug. Her and I been emailing and txting and finally we met. The girls were chatting up a storm. I informed James (pearcetoyou)that we were running late. James was already at Diabloâ€™s I asked him to check us in and that we will be there in 10mins. It was traffic on the strip. I have never been to Diabloâ€™s. I had to either park at monte carlo or New York New York. Parking was a nightmare. It was 7:15pm and I was getting nervous that maybe TBs showed up and maybe left cuz we were running late.
When we arrived I saw James. They had not buzzed us in. it was very packed and loud near the bar. We waited another 10mins to seat us. Will (w_clemmons) called me. He was also running late. He just got off work and hitting traffic as well. We sat in our table anyway. Only 6 TBs showed up out of the 11 that were coming. I did not blame them if they bailed. It was terrible traffic on the strip on a Friday night.
NOTE: pick off the strip spot for next PRE TB MEET UP.
We were seated near the entrance. Which was perfect, it would be easy for TBs to find us. 15mins.
We all talked and laughed all night. We all whipped out our digi cams and took pics all night. Of course took pics of our food to do a review. I kept saying â€śI DONâ€™T TOUCH YOUR FOOD YETâ€ťâ€¦â€¦then â€śclickâ€ť and â€śflashâ€ť. I think between the 6 of us we blinded everybodyâ€¦.LOL. James and I did shots. He had patron and I had of course grey goose. We hung out there til about 11pm.
I did not plan what to do afterwards. Tracy and Angel was thinking of karaoke. I wasnâ€™t thinking of any good ideas. I said walking down the strip or clubbing but, will doesnâ€™t dance.
COOL :) we paid the bill and off we walk to MGM which was a 15min walk across the bridge. As we were walking, we were being silly and talking pictures near New York New York.
We end up hanging out at the rouge; it is a lounge near the restaurant wing. It was all red and dark. Will left to play craps for a bit. He said he was going to meet up later. We all looked at the menu. i was still buzzed from the last shot of grey goose. james bought me another shot of grey goose. WOW now that one hit me like a tons of bricks. i was red as a cherry after that shot.
Will left us at around 1am to go play poker. we wanted to look for him and bug him. however, he was still at the poker room. i txted him if he was still there and he was......i hope he will be sane enough for the TB MEET UP at the lucky bar........we shall see........
when we dropped off julz we were showing her were i almost hit the curb looking of a street. we were all still laughing about it. tracy kept on giggling about every time she sees a "bike route" sign. i hope julz sleeps well. i hope the air mattress is near the door. she can just fall on it and pass out LOL.
WOO HOO WHAT A GREAT START FOR THE "VEGAS TB MEET UP"........
