All the traffic backing up out of Vegas due to the truck fire

After a really great time at the wine event on Thursday night, I had the lovely all day drive to look forward to on Friday to get to Vegas.  Given the fact I didn't quite make it home until after the sun rose on Friday, it was safe to say I wasn't going to make it time for Kim's actually birthday dinner. HA HA HA. 

Amazingly, I got packed, got my work stuff done, and I was out the door, a few hours behind schedule but at least it was still day light on Friday! Whoo Hoo.  My drive was rather uneventful except for the two bad accidents - one fatality wherein it looked like the car literally rolled onto the freeway lanes from the onramp and then an interesting truck fire almost to Vegas - it appeared the truck was incinerated.

There was so much debris and ash that they had a skiploader and dump truck on the freeway cleaning up the mess.  Tried to look online but never saw specifics on what happened there!

Arrived in Vegas late Friday evening, barely making my friend Kim's Bday dinner at Planet Hollywood!  Good thing everyone else was late and she stalled a bit for me to get there.  We had dinner at Yolo's in Planet Hollywood - pretty good food. Obviously, on the LV Strip so not inexpensive.  Kim being the practical chain smoker that she is - she left us with ample opportunity to find ways to get them to embarrass her.  The manager offered to have a special drink concocted for her, which with a group of girls is always likely to result in the infamous blow job shot.

OMG..yeah, I got voted to do the shot "the right way"
  When they brought it over, Kim said she couldn't take it due to all her pain killers from her recent shoulder surgery.  We made her try a little anyways and proceeded to pass it around.  Figures I get voted to actually try and really take the shot.  Yeah, my mouth is big but not THAT big!  Thanks to Rebecca (NOT) for her quick camera skills to catch my moment of shame.  We are not quite sure what was in this particular version since it tasted different (not Robitussin like Kim thought).   

From there, we wandered over to the Extra Lounge to watch Kim's friend Matt perform his piano gig.  He was rather entertaining - it was my first time seeing him after hearing so much about the show.

Rebecca, Kim, and Me
  I really enjoyed watching him - he is quite the entertainer and does a great job at keeping the audience laughing.  On his break, someone comes in and does karoake for an hour...oh my - talk about hilarious.  I think we saw it all that night!  From the midwest Eminem, Vanilla Ice, a bad Elvis impersonator, to the guy who really believes he's the "Artist Formally Known As" aka Prince.  He had a huge medallion on his chest with the symbol....yeah, interesting.  Where we were sitting provided prime people watching opportunities, some of which I wish I had never seen as the memories are forever etched in my brain.  Eeeeew.  One of the favorites of the night was the rather pear shaped older lady who should not have been wearing a white halter top to begin with but add to that the lack of undergarments.
Me, Kim, and Carisa
..throw in some dancing, a bit of jumping and clapping, and yeah...wow...uh....speechless. 

The best part of the night by far was the embarrassment Matt the piano man dealt out to Kim. He knew it was her birthday and shortly after the show started, he called her name out and brought her up to the stage to sit on the piano bench with him.  He sang the song with the chorus that says "why don't get drunk and screw" HA HA.  We managed to capture the whole thing on video on my camera. I just need to upload it to YouTube and get it linked on here.  Kim had it easy though - the rest of the people they called up later in the night for bday songs were more raunchy and interactive....I couldn't see Kim doing anything like that....she wanted to kill us already for just having to sit there on stage! LOL

I had a great night hanging out with Rebecca and Kim, and Kim's friend Carisa who I had only met one other time prior to moving away from Vegas.

Me and Lance...Toto buds forever!
  Even my friend Lance made a brief appearance after he got off work at Southwest.  For those who don't know...Lance is my superstar friend who I met shortly after I moved to Vegas in 2004 and he took me to see Toto.....he and I are forever bonded, especially since they announced their "official" break up which means no chance of seeing them together again! :-( 

Thanks Kim for a wonderful birthday and helping ensure I managed to stay out until almost 3am my first night back in town! HA HA
