The Vegas Core Crew's Minimeetup with Rene (Reneso)

Unfortunately the Queen (mellemel8) was hanging with General James (Pearcetoyou) in St. Louis and Duke RJ (RJ82) and I (the Queen's LT) were re-energizing our souls hiking at Zion with Jenn, Tracy, BiG, Sheila, Nih and Nancy when Rene contacted me about wanting to get together with us.  Tonight we made good on our promise of having a mini meetup in his honor and proving to him that the stories he's heard about us are true...ALL true! ;) 

We decided to go with my recommendation of Stefano's which is across from UNLV and in my opinion has better quality Mediterranean food at much better prices than Paymon's which is the "crown jewel" Mediterranean restaurant in Vegas. They also have a Hookah Lounge !

I picked up Rene who was staying with his brother who lives in an uncharted territory of Las Vegas (ie anything east of the Strip).

..thanks to Mapquest I found him!   We were running a little late but those that know me know this isn't surprising!  I had also invited Luis who is a medical resident and former student of mine and Shana who I know from UMC (University Med. Center).  Luis called while I was en route to let me know whe was there but since he's never met any of my TB friends.  I described Melanie to him an turns out she was standing next to him all along! I told him we'd be there in a few minutes and we raced to Stefano's Post Haste! 

After getting there in just a few minutes we all exchanged hugs and soon Rene was feeling the love from the Vegas Core Crew!  We ordered our food and soon were enjoying such  Mediterranean  delights  as Chicken Kabobs,  Beef and Lamb Gyros,  Falafal balls (which the Queen was gracious enough to share with us), israeli salad, hummus and fresh baked pita!  I also tried the home made Lentil soup which was delicious!  During dinner RJ, Mel and I argued over what lousy movie the three of us had seen after Nancy's (FancyNancy) birthday party.

  RJ insisted he didn't see a movie with us at all but Melanie and I know he did!! Unfortunately we thought it was the new Indiana Jones movie and turns out we were WRONG! It was The Mummy 3...which WAS lousy. So now Melanie and I owe him some frozen yogurt (ie FRO YO).

Soon after dinner we decided to gather around the hookah and banter...appropriately enough we decided to smoke a tobacco called "X-RATED" LOL.  It's a combination of two flavors...Sex on the beach and Guava!  It was actually pretty good!  So good in fact that Melissa (Melissa919) couldn't contain her pheromones any further and seduced one of the other customers (we'll just call him Filipino Muscleboy) into giving her a lap dance right in the hookah lounge!!  The night was really flying by now and we were ready to head to our next stop.

The Welcoming of the Queen!
..The Piano Bar at Harrahs! Unfortunately RJ had to leave at this point because of early morning work obligations so we said our goodbyes and were off to Harrah's.

For those that don't know or haven't experienced a dueling piano bar....GO!!! It's so much fun that even the frumpiest person will loosen up a bit.  This place was HOPPING as usual and soon enough we were all belting out some well known pop songs by Queen, AC/DC, Guns n Roses, Van Morrison, Jimmy Buffet etc! In my usual fashion of just befriending total strangers I happened to just look over at a crazy college aged crew sitting across from us (I thought they were from Seattle because of their beanies and Grunge look...but turned out they were LA people) and the next thing I know the leader of their pack (looked like a cross between Nirvana and Red Hot Chili Peppers band members) comes over and high 5's me and gives me a Corona! Well the next thing you know Mel and I are being inducted into their buckethead brotherhood and singing Bohemian Rhapsody with them! (see pics below) LOL!  The Queen and I plotted to have them play "I'm too Sexy for My Shirt"  for Rene for good old public embarrassment and great picture taking purposes.

..and wow did that pay off!!!  Our new crew of cute female piano players had Rene come up on stage and "act out" the song!!  Soon he got some help from som e hot chick that jumped over the railing and started undressing him on stage!! Unfortunately I took some awesome pics but they're on Rene's camera so if he posts them I promise to steal them and put them here...they're a HOOOT! Mission accomplished!! The Vegas CoreCrew was reunited and yet again an unsuspecting visiting TB will have unbelievable stories to tell when he gets back home! ;)
