I’m off to Vegas!

I’m going to Vegas this weekend! I’m so excited because I’ve never been, though I sent my clients at my last job there so often that I feel like I know the city like the back of my hand.

I’m going with my friends Lisa and Alexa, plus Alexa’s boyfriend, Grant. If you read my personal blog, Kate’s Adventures, you’ve likely seen some amusing stories about us, especially Lisa. (Check out the Bar-Hopping category!)

We’re staying at a great resort on the Strip; we’re partying at Body English, Tao and Tryst; we’re seeing Cirque du Soleil’s LOVE and, um, Chippendales; we’re eating some fantastic food and lounging by the pool; and I will be playing Blackjack like crazy, since I’m still on my high from winning $92.50 in six hands at Foxwoods a few months ago!

I plan on Twittering like crazy via phone. If you’re on Twitter, be sure to follow me — my name is AdventurousKate on there. If you’re not, you should join! I was initially apprehensive about joining, but now I’m obsessed with its greatness. Even if you’re not a member, though, you can see my page.

I’ll be back at 12:35 AM on Wednesday morning. And then I’m working the next day.

And then I’m being interviewed by a national publication for a feature on crazy grammarians like us.  I’m taking down another ritzy Boston neighborhood this time!

Have a great weekend (Bostonians: enjoy the Celtics celebrations!), and I’ll be back on Wednesday, hopefully armed with a memory card full of grammatical errors from Sin City.

Until then, check out the Sexy Can I punctuation contest below!

  1. Just remember … what happens in Vegas, STAYS in Vegas! :-)

  2. Fur, my friend Lisa has already told me that when we get home, she’s titling her Facebook photo album “What happens in Vegas….ends up in Kate McCulley’s blog!”

  3. Did you see the latest Stuff White People Like post (White Problems – Typos on Menus)? This is made for you and MUST be mentioned on The Grammar Vandal!

    Oh, and have fun in Vegas…I’m going next weekend.

  4. I saw it and I can’t wait to post about it when I get back.

    Let me know if you want me to get you into any clubs! My old job involved a lot of VIP access in Vegas, which I still retain to this day and plan to exploit for the rest of my life. :-)

  5. Hi,

    I am reading the Pandora Prescription by James Sheridan and I was curious if you have ever read it? Also, have you heard about this?

  6. Be sure to check out Lotus of Siam (on Sahara, maybe a mile east of the strip) and Rosemary’s (west of the strip). If you look on chowhound.com you will see a ton of reviews!

  7. I hope you at least had a good martini at the Voodoo Lounge.

  8. Molly, I will check it out!

    Jill, I didn’t try any of those places, but I might actually go back in November or December! I’ve heard Rosemary’s is fantastic.

    Dan, I didn’t get a martini, but I did go up to Voodoo Lounge for a bit! The view was marvelous and I did the Ferris Bueller leaning-forward thing on the glass elevator and freaked out.

  9. “… I feel like I know the city like the back of my hand.”

    “Like” is a preposition and not a conjunction, as legions of grammarians have pointed out.

  10. “I’m going to Vegas this weekend! I’m so excited because I’ve never been,…”

    “never been” or “never been ‘there'”?
