Are You a Vegas Virgin?

I’m not, anymore!

This will forevermore be my favorite profile photo!

When my friend Sherry Randall told me she planned to see Barry Manilow in Las Vegas the end of March, 2023, I decided to tag along. I’d never been to Vegas. I’d won a trip for two to Vegas back in the early 2000s after winning the Northern Virginia Bowler of the Year Award (traded it in for tickets to St. Croix), been told by countless people how horrible Vegas was, and had been warned about the still-smoky casinos, but deep in my heart I knew it was time to decide for myself.

Sherry planned the whole weekend. We’d see Barry the first night, attend a Cirque du Soleil (Mystère) the second night, see the musical SIX the 3rd night, and possibly recover from walking an average of seven miles per day our 4th night.

Barry Manilow…front row seats! So WOW!

Sometime over the course of our visit, one of us would turn $20 into $20,000 at a Casino. It (didn’t) could happen.

Without saying any more, watch this video compilation of highlights from our Vegas vacation and decide for yourself if it was worth doing!

Yes, it was SOOoooooo worth doing!

Happy to say I’m no longer a Vegas Virgin–and I would recommend an exploratory visit there to anyone who might ask! Make sure you go with someone you know will choose to have fun!
