Garfield Gets Drunk in Vegas

Garfield Drunk in Vegas

We’ve seen a lot of unusual things in Vegas over the years, but none of them may compare to what we saw this past weekend! While we were enjoying a stroll on the Strip, we happened by Binion’s area and saw some street performers dressed as various comic/cartoon characters. This is not the abnormal part, as with a license, these people are allowed to stroll the Strip or set up shop and take photos for money. What we didn’t expect to see was a drunk man pretending to be passed out against the wall dressed in a Garfield costume! He drew quite a crowd. Problem is, apparently, he didn’t take kindly to another performer and had a bit of a brawl with him. When we walked back by the same area some time later, he was being led away in handcuffs!

The New iPhone 4S – Vegas-Style

Vegas iphone app

We are all techno-geeks and enjoy getting the latest equipment the day it comes out, so the iPhone 4S is no exception. Leave it in our hands and let us test it out, however, and there could be some trouble! We have already been walking around Vegas using the voice-activated questions on the Siri section of the new phone…with some er…unusual, results.

Among the postable questions we’ve asked (and you can try this at home) are:

“Where is the best place to find company in Vegas?”

“How much does a lap dance cost?”

“How many drinks until I’m drunk?”

“What should I do if I wake up with a tiger in my bathroom?”

“Why is the world round?”

and so on and so forth. It’s even better if you ask a random person on the street (disclaimer: we are not responsible for results should you find an angry person). Enjoy!

A Little Too Much

drunk in vegasVegas is all about excess, but sometimes, we forget when we’re having a little too much. This, sadly, includes alcohol. I was at the various nightspots drinking with The Hoosier and DV8R when The Hoosier saw a woman he SWORE he was going to marry on the spot…only problem was, The Hoosier was on his 4th mixed drink and not of sound faculties when saying this. As we attempted to reason with him and pour him some water, he kept babbling on about this gorgeous girl that nobody could see. We finally ask, “WHO are you talking about?!” to which The Hoosier responded, “The Glitter Girl!” and pointed above us to the huge sign at the Fremont Street Experience. At this point, we decided to cut The Hoosier off and send him packing.

The Hoosier and The Pillow – Stories From Vegas

Stories from vegas

(note-this is not The Hoosier) After yet another long night of drinking way too many beverages that tasted way too good, The Hoosier started feeling sickly, so we dropped him off in his room and continued on our merry way. Upon awakening the next morning…er, afternoon–we received a phone call from some very angry hotel maids. Apparently, The Hoosier saw fit to deposit the contents of his drinking and alcohol the night before onto a hotel pillow, wake up, stumble to the bathroom, and forget that the pillow was ruined in his drunken stupor. The bill? $75. The lesson? If you’re gonna puke, do it in a trash can or someplace the maid won’t find it and report it!

The Chair and The Bed

Vegas pranksThe Players: Me, The Hoosier

After a long night of drinking on the town, we came back to our hotel and (what else?) continued to enjoy the liquid haze we created for our brains further. Around 3am, The Hoosier came barging into my room as I was settling in and announced he was “training to be a ‘gymnast-icist’” and promptly stood on one of those nice office chairs you get in a suite. As he was preparing to jump onto my bed, I heard a strange creaking noise from the chair. Before I could warn The Hoosier, he jumped, cracked the chair, and did a complete front flip, landing butt-first on my bed and bowing it in as well.

For some reason, we never got a bill…

We Suck at Blackjack – Stories from Vegas

Vegas Gambling StoriesAt the Circus Circus, Henry (pictured here) literally stopped the game and made DV8R go get a Blackjack Strategy Card because DV8R was messing up so badly. Sad, but true.

The picture of Henry is a recent one, but the action that created the memory was from a very long time ago.

This is one of my fondest memories, because Henry and George made fun of our lack of Blackjack abilities so much we were literally crying.

The Donut from Hell

Vegas huge foodThe Story:

The boys and I were feeling a little froggy, so we decided that a night of imbibing wouldn’t keep us from finding the biggest and most sugar-laden food item we could find and ingesting it whole. Enter Serendipity 3′s giant donut. With our wallets a little lighter and stomachs begging for something besides alcohol, we set to work on this colossus of a creation. Mind you, this donut should be able to feed a small village, much less a few not-so-sober tourists. Long story short, we dominated said donut and came back for more…the next day. Why Allen isn’t eating one of these in The Hangover is beyond me–it’s right in Caesars! We wondered why, upon waking the next morning, that our stomachs hurt as much as our heads. We think it was the Donut from Hell, but it won’t stop us from coming back again.
