So we are done with the pool and are eating dinner. I start to get antsy because we have to meet up with Erin and Mel before And half of us went to eat at a deli while the other half went to the buffet. I wanted something quick and fast because it was already or so and I knew that getting ourselves prettied up would take forever because there are 6 girls! So we finish eating and Erika, Eliza and I get back to the room and start doing our make-ups.
Yvette & Eliza
Eliza gets a call from her friend that lives in Vegas. He’s going to be joining us for the night’s activities. I say the more the merrier! His name is Chris. He was downstairs and she was going down to meet him and would be back. I was hoping that they would be back in time before we left to the club. A while later I call Cindy, my cousin. I ask what she is doing and she said that she was gambling and that Yvette and Angel were on their way up to the room. I said cool! Cindy was already dressed since she didn’t want to be in the room with us while the rest of us got dressed.The girls finally get to the room and Angel says she is taking a nap until . I said ok, but we are leaving at so be ready by that time.
Maria & I (friend from high school hadn't seen her in over 8 years)
So I am finished by and my sister has been working on her eye shadow for the past 20 minutes. Angel is 15 minutes awake and Erika is almost done. Plenty of time, I hope! Eliza knocks on the door and asks if everybody is decent. Well, of course we aren’t! So Yvette puts on her pants but not before saying something so freaking crude. She’s crazy!
I walk to the door and open it, turn my face to the right and nobody is there. I am thinking in my head that Eliza is weird! She didn’t bring anybody up with her. So then I turn my face to the left and I see Chris.
He’s staring down at me “I’m on this side, not the other side!” I can’t help but laugh. I am such a dork! So I tell him to come inside. This guy is great! We hit it off right away. He’s funny. I like funny people. They aren’t dull or boring. And he bought me liquor. How can I not like him? So we are chatting while everybody else is finishing up getting ready and then we are off! Downstairs to the lobby we go! I call Cindy letting her know to meet us and she says “I don’t think I’m going to go because I haven’t slept and I don’t think I will hang with you guys.” So what she is basically telling me is that she wants to gamble and doesn’t care to go out. Again, she is a gambler and has a problem. So I tell her that’s fine and I hope she has fun. Erika and I go and get in the taxi line. It was a pretty long line. We were waiting for the others to get there and waiting, and waiting. Erika goes and tries to find them and comes back with no luck! Then I see them and I wave to them. Eliza had left with Chris in his car, he’s a local, and they followed them thinking that they were going to the taxi lines. We get in our cab and I’m calling Mel asking her where she is at. She’s on her way she said. It took us maybe 10 minutes to get from MGM to the Mirage. Besides seeing Erin and Mel, I am also supposed to meet up with my friend Maria from high school.
Yvette w/Erin in the background
I hadn’t seen her in years! We use to party together, ahhh...the memories.
Well, we get to the Mirage before Mel does and we are waiting by the club entrance. We aren’t in line. We are just standing there looking pretty.This petite blonde comes up to us and asks us if wanted some type some stubs for the club. They said something like, Comp Ticket or Ladies Ticket. Not sure what they were for, but we ended up talking to her while waiting for Mel and Erin to arrive. Turns out she’s from Puerto Rico and went to Las Vegas to meet her brother so they could spend some time together.
Angel and Mel (the 2 pole dancers)
He’s now living in L.A. I get a call from Mel telling me she is there and I look towards the door. I see her and Erin walk in and rush over to them for hugs. Mel calls her hook up from the club and tells her where to meet him.While this is happening, my friends are still talking to the brother and sister. Mel gets a head count and we head on over. Angel asks me if it would be ok to bring Marah and Tavier (the siblings) so I ask Mel and she said that it’s alright. So now they are added to our mix. Total in our little party: 10 people!
We got to go right in and this club, JET, has 3 dance floor/rooms and plays a variety of music.
Erin, Chris & Eliza
The main floor has a stage with some stripper poles. Good thing that Erin and Mel happened to have the appropriate shoes because they had gone shopping earlier that day and bought some stripper shoes! Really cute! Erin’s pair are black with white polka dots. Mel’s are clear and when she takes a step they flash with blinking lights. Loved them! Mel did get a chance to go up and dance on that stage. Angel went with her, as well but that was later in the night. We went to the bar and as always, I get an Alabama Slammer. That happens to be my favorite mixed drink at this time. It’s very delicious. But I was alternating between that and Malibu Bay Breeze (I’m thirsty all of a sudden!). We then began to dance the night away! There were a few times when we were lost with the crowd but would find each other at the main bar.
My sister started talking to this guy; unfortunately I did not get his name.
Chris and Tavier
But he was a local and he started buying us drinks. He was really nice. He even bought drinks for the guys that were with us! What other guy does that? Well, besides buying a friend a few beers. I’ve never witnessed that. Needless to say that I had maybe 3 to 4 drinks all within the next half hour. I don’t know what they were, but they were good. I should have asked! Darn it! But needless to say, I was a bit tipsy after that. But it was good. I was surrounded by great friends and that’s always good. OH! And I was walking down when I heard my name being called! I turned and saw my friend Maria from high school! Seeing her brought so many memories! Made me feel young again, too! We didn’t get to spend any time together besides maybe like 5 minutes as she was celebrating her boyfriend’s birthday and had her own thing going on. But it was great seeing her.
This night was such a blast dancing the night away with these special people.
Angel and myself
They are really great! I have even kept in contact with Marah from Puerto Rico and of course with Mel and Erin. These two ROCK! I love them! But as the crowd in the club started getting smaller and smaller, we decided to call it a night at 4 in the morning or so. I don’t remember the exact time.And actually, we didn’t even leave. We left the club but sat down outside and kept on talking. We basically didn’t want the night/morning to end. We were there maybe for an hour or maybe less, talking about nothing and remembering the nights events. I can’t wait to do it again!
Awwww!!! It was such a GREAT night! See, you have no choice now but to come for the Sept meet up!!! We MUST hang out again and we are doing the Bank @ Bellagio, perhaps VIP service. Whoo Hoo!!! And I promise to have flip flops with me this time! Hee Hee. I miss you and we loved your crazy sister and friends!!! :-) See you soon!!!
