Mar 27 - Jackson Hole, China?

So I inherited Louie's fish. His name is Jackson - as in Jackson Hole, Wyoming (the town smack dab between Yellowstone NP and Grand Teton NP). Louie had him in a fish bowl, but I read that a bigger tank is healthier for the fish and less maintenance for me.

So I purchased a few things and went with an Asian theme. I think it turned out swimmingly, so to speak.

Mar 26 - Kaz Snooker

I had a pool table as a kid and we had snooker balls, but I had never actually played snooker on a full size table before. So when I found this snooker club in Chinatown, I knew I had to check it out. I enlisted Bunch to come down and shoot a few frames with me. It's a challenging and fun game.

Mar 26 - Steppin' Out

At Nelson Q's "Steppin' Out @ Slidin' Thru HQ - after hours" event last night, he incentivized people to show up on time by offering a special surprise for the first ten people. Well, I got there an hour late, but lucky for me someone left their box for me to claim. Nelson is a pastry chef at Aria (I think) and these desserts were delicious!

Mar 25 - Slidin' Thru HQ

The Slider Truck recently opened a brick & mortar location. Nelson Q wrangled us together for an Unofficial Yelp Event at Slidin' Thru HQ. Despite the fact that it's right around the corner from work, this was my first time visiting.

Yes, this is a photo of one of their light fixtures. If you want to see what the place looks like, I guess you'll just have to slide thru for yourself!

Mar 5 - Say What?

A family friend was in town for a soccer tournament. "Say What?" was their team name and despite all the typical Vegas distractions, they won! Then again, every team had the same distractions - some more than others.
