After spending three days in Los Angeles, I was ecstatic to get back home and hit Surrender to hear good music spinning from DJ Mighty Mi. The vacation was fun overall, but I must say nothing compares to Las Vegas. I was not a fan of LA music playing in the lounges. I don’t know how to describe it. I guess I would consider it underground hip-hop with a mix of beats that was supposed to be house? My favorite was when we were in Teddy’s in Hotel Roosevelt and this girl says to me at the bar, “I’m so happy they finally have a DJ that actually plays house music.” At that time, “Juicy” from B.I.G. came on. I smiled at her sympathetic knowledge of music and said, “Oh honey, you don’t know house until you have been to Vegas.” I did find some awesome dresses shopping on Melrose to go out with this weekend, and I’m going to need them because this weekend music is taking over.
Before I boogie down, I will be dressing up with a ‘stache. Yes, I do mean a mustache. Silverton Casino is bringing back Mustachio Bashio, an event to show off your best ‘stache. Doors open at 6PM to a Mariachi band, live karaoke, beer pong, mashed potato eating contest, $1 beer, and more! Even if you don’t sport a mustache, I still encourage you to check it out because they will be selling Mustachio Bashio limited t-shirts and a portion of the proceeds go to the Juvenile Diabetics Research Foundation. Once I am done filling up on carbs, I am going to get my dance on. Where shall I go? DJ Cobra is at Lavo, Rev Run is at Rain, DJ Ross is at Tao, or I could fist pump next to Vinny from the Jersey Shore at JET. Wherever I go, I just need to make sure I get some rest because Saturday Wisconsin is playing UNLV at 4PM. After going to my first NBA game, my basketball fever has set in, and I should go cheer for my Badger Alumni. Later that night DJ Felix da Cathouse is at Rain and I always enjoy the energy he brings to his sets. I won’t be able to stay for too long as I want to go to Tao when they do a crossover set with DJ Vice and Ravi Drums. It is not easy to follow the beats together and when two different music sets can combine their talent, it is usually a major crowd pleaser. If I have time, I’m going to sneak to Lavo and check out Bam Margera as he is hosting the night in celebration of JACKASS 3D’s success. Thank goodness I came back in time for all the dancing so I can burn off those calories I will be packing on next week for Thanksgiving. Viva Las Vegas!
