A couple weeks ago, I requested your best Vegas story. Thank you soo much and I hope you enjoyed the 14 Karat Cake. A million thanks to my foodie friend, James Kiester, for judging the shenanigans. I had no idea he was writing a book about Vegas. Check out his food blog for more fun. Big congrats to the winner, a special surprise Vegas inspired prezzy will be sent soon. James picks the winning story below.
“My favorite story involved an elevator ride with Dean Martin, a Frank Sinatra concert, and a marriage proposal. Unfortunately, it all happened in Reno, so I can only award Trish an Honorable Mention. I poured over the rest of the stories of parties, strip clubs, and wild nights with great care. I eventually narrowed it down to three stories; Liska420’s drunken adventure, Bridget’s $1,200 slot win, and Leslie B’s celebrity fest at Hard Rock Café. All 3 of these stories SCREAM, “Las Vegas,” to me in different ways. For over a week, the story which ended with taking a strip club’s limo through a fast food drive-thru was the front runner. What’s more “Vegas” than a early morning junk food run after a night of drinking and male strippers? Being a gambler at heart though, I leaned toward the slot win for a good long time too. But, drinking at a table with Ed McMahon smacks of a classic Vegas moment too. In the end, Bridget was the one who did the research and figured out how to beat the bandits. For that reason, I have to reward Bridget with the win.”
