Vegas Part 2 and Glee Casting

As I was researching the Glee auditions, I came across this article talking about the auditions.  I am a little disappointed in learning that they are looking for 2 males and 1 female...my odds are not as good but no worries I am still auditioning.  I have pulled out my old tap shoes and have been practicing my routine.

Now back to part two of Miss Dean's trip to Vegas: (Check out her introduction and part one  first if you missed them.)

"Friday we had lunch at the Mirage at BLT Burger, which was fabulous for the hangover and 3 hours of sleep lingering over all of us. We came to a final decision to just walk around and take in the city and see everything we could, since that sounds like a good idea on zero sleep and headaches? Pretty uneventful… until that night. That night was our night to see the Cirque du Soleil Beatles LOVE show.  So we had dinner at a place called STACK where our bill ended up at over $600 and they wouldn’t split our bill for us….. I wont bore you with details but we finally figured it out. On to the Beatles show, which turns out, probably one of the best productions I have ever seen. And I have seen many Broadway shows, a Cirque show the night before, but all I can say for this is wow. (Sidenote, Alicia is very cultured and def knows her Broadway shows, trust her opinion on this one.) After the show, we adventured on to the Beatles Revolution Lounge. We were once again greeted like kings and queens and escorted to our private table with another complimentary bottle of vodka.  We danced, sang, and took way too many pictures. You shouldn’t take a lot of pictures in Vegas, considering half the point in going is to not remember what you did. Once we were finished there, we were escorted to JET, the nightclub at the Mirage where the show and lounge were miserable. I felt like I was in a nightmare with the entire Jersey Shore cast plus strippers. So we decided to leave there and walk to Caesars which holds the club PURE. Now, we didn’t have connections here so when we walked in, we really didn’t know what to do. But lucky enough, we had a friend from Ole Miss come meet us while he was in California for the weekend, and he decided to buy us a table there that night.  How lucky are we? Another VIP table. Another free bottle of vodka. I’ve never been this lucky.

That next day was pretty much wasted on sleeping and prepping ourselves for our last and final night. We had reservations for dinner at The Foundation Room on top of Mandalay Bay. Dinner was the best food I have had in awhile. Steaks, scallops, wine, dessert, all worth the price. After dinner I called a friend of mine, who is a magician that worked in Vegas for awhile and knows lots of people (yes, I know a magician) and he gave me the number of a guy called “Diamond Dave”. "Diamond Dave" was the one who could get us in to the most impossible club to enter, XS, which is in the Encore hotel. So I made the phone call and he told us to meet him there. We meet, walk to the club, see the 2-hour long line to get in, and he walks all of us up to the VIP line and we walk straight in. You think this only happens in the movies… XS turned out to be so much fun and we danced all night and came in way too late. Good thing our flights didn’t leave until 4 pm the next day.

All I can say is, I am surprised we all made it home in one piece. Trying to navigate ourselves through the airport in this condition was not as easy task. Exhausted still, our flights did not get into Memphis International Airport until 12:30 am. I am still tired. Needless to say, we successfully conquered Vegas."

I hope that you all have a super fabulous weekend.  As you know, I am going to the sunny state this weekend, and will back mid week with some amazing blogs.  Check out my facebook and twitter for updates in the time being.

  1. Mols, I'm waiting for my invite to have a special blog post from Aurora (the city of lights). Well, guess I'll just be biding my time with planning a Super Bowl party for middle schoolers.
