Ran into Cammy at the airport, and it turns out we were all on the same flight.
Hannah x Cammy x Nancee
Had to get the party going, so we had a little pre-flight warm-up. Henny Redbull.
Thanks to Nancee's hookup, we got ourselves the VIP treatment. VIP check-in to the Venetian and access to the VIP lounge. HOLLA!
Free cheese and crackers? Don't mind if I do.
This cookie was AMAZING!!! I <3 VIP
After lounging in the VIP area for a minute, we made our way up to our suite. The room was HUGE! Although it did look like we were missing furniture. I felt there should've been a couch or something where TK is standing.
No parties were being thrown the first night, so we made our way down to the casino floor to TRY and win money.
Our roll dogs called it a night early, so Hannah and myself gambled till about 4am and grabbed 4th meal at Grand Lux. mmm chicken parm nomz
The next morning we woke up to this beautiful view. It looked nice out, but if your definition of nice is 101 degrees, then you probably used to live on the sun.
Can someone say Diva? Someone got pampered this trip... ahem ahem Hannah.
My favorite thing about Vegas. We should have these in SD!
2nd attempt at TRYING to win money. Judging by everyones facial expressions, how do you think we did?
Losing money = more drinking to cheer you up.
The rest of the fam showed up later that evening, we played, drank, and bullshitted. Sorry no pics.
The next day a few of us went to get more VIP treatment. Virus x Boo x Nay Nay x Kanye Asada.
Free sandwiches, cheese, and crackers? Don't mind if I do.
And complimentary drinks? Don't mind if I do.
The host in the VIP lounge was RAD! He showed us a few magic tricks.
We didn't eat much in the VIP lounge because we were saving room for more Fat Tuesday's. We took a trip over to Ceasars to grab some frozen libations, and bullshitted around the Forum Shops. On the way back to the Venetian, Brandon and myself got hungry. We tend to eat with our eyes and not our stomachs. We probably only ate a quarter of all this food.
The rest of this Saturday was pretty chill. Gambled, slept, drank more, then attempted to go out. I'll leave it at "attempted". I did somehow make my way to the Slightly Dangerous suite at the Aria. It was nuts, and definitely fun. I felt like I was in a movie. and the suite was AMAZING!
Sunday, the fam left back home and we were back to the original 4. We really wanted a buffet, and I've heard about how great the M Buffet is, so we took a taxi down there. $40 taxi ride!?!? This place better be worth it.
It was definitely one of the best buffets i've been to. Free beer and wine! Try the meatballs and the chicken florentine. yumz.
Food coma? or excitement from listening to Hannah explain the difference between ice cream and gelatos? If you guessed option 2, you're right!! *yawn*
Christian had to take off Sunday night, so I was left to party with these two lovely ladies. LML
We met up with the Slightly Dangerous crew at Lavo in the Palazzo. Hannah and myself were super excited to hear DJ Vice spin. Judging by the crowd, we weren't the only ones.
Only a fraction of the Slightly Dangerous ladies were left for the Sunday night party. Imagine 10 times more ladies in this booth... that's what you missed out on.
Hannah (Victory) x TK (Victory) x Myron (21XL)
Greetings from Vegas. From, part of your Victory SD staff.
Sweet baby Jesus.
We raged till about 3am before we called it a night. GREAT GREAT night. Lots of drinks, and lots of maddness. Oh and BTW, DJ Vice did not let us down. He's SICK!
After peeling ourselves outta bed at about noon the next day, we made our way over to Planet Hollywood for lunch at Planet Dailies.
French Onion soup, mi favorito.
After lunch we stopped at Earl of Sandwich to grab food to ship out to SF for Rayzaruckus, Noelle in SD, and Rygar in England.
Do-it-Yourself repairs in Vegas. Not tacky at all.
Sorry for the lack of interesting pictures. More pics to come as soon as I get them from the others.

Danny Trejo's new movie looks epic. I gotta see it!

Canon takes another stab at perfecting the point-and-shoot camera by creating the PowerShot G12, the current successor to the PowerShot G11. This time, Canon equips the PowerShot G12 with a 5x wide angle (28mm-140mm) zoom and IS (Optical Image Stabilizer). Capable of taking 720p HD videos and improved so that one can take better shots in low light settings, the Canon PowerShot G12 is a perfect alternative for the consumer not interested in the bulk and complexity of a DSLR camera.Via: Canon
Anyone interested in buying my G10? Shoot me an offer.

Upon its release, the Canon PowerShot S90 effectively stole he limelight from Canon’s top-of-the-line compact G-series line of cameras. Establishing itself as a powerhouse offering in a small package, a new update has been revealed. The compact camera boasts further enhancements of the original S90 including re-developing the body for an even smaller footprint. New additions include an HDR mode, 720p video recording and a new anti-slip coating derived from the 7D DSLR. Some of the same elements of the original S90 are preserved including the 10 MP sensor, innovative control ring and f2.0 lens. Available later this month with a suggested retail price of $400 USD.

Oh, and did I mention Made of Honor was playing on the tube. SCORE!
Virus hittin' yah with the juggle. BTW: He's just playing around. Imagine when he actually puts it down! Be on the look out for his newest wedding inspired mix, which should be dropping soon.
Before getting our bulk-shopping on, we grabbed some inexpensive yet yummy grub at the food court. Everyone has been hyping up the Carne Asada bake, so I had to get it. It's really kinda ehh. It needs like hot sauce or something.
Look who I found, in his signature sleeping pose.
I don't know how I feel about this packaging. I can't bring myself to buy a throw that depicts the animal who lost all of it's coat for me. Such a brave lil sheep.
After stocking up on gallons of alcohol, we took a trip over to Barona to warm up our gaming skills.
This is my favorite slot at Barona, Sex in the City. Although on this particular night, Carrie wasn't been so nice. I lost $60 playing =( But I invested in Klev at the War table and he won me $100! So I went home up $40. Not amazing, but I got back the money I spent on liquor at Costco. Speaking of which, are you aware that you don't need a Costco membership card when you buy ONLY liquor? Now you know, go get drunk.
This is what I look forward to at Barona. Mix the Sprite and Pink Lemonade, you can thank me later.
Today we come across Jelly Lens, a new series of mini lenses, especially made for the camera of your mobile phone. With the quality of images of mobile phone cameras constantly increasing, why not add a set of lenses to it as well. The line-up includes fish eye lenses, wide angle lenses, as well as many special effect lenses and color filters. You can get them now here.
Transworld Skateboarding has put forth a challenge to the skate community to shoot, direct, and produce the most creative skate video. Each team is comprised of four professional skaters and two amateurs. Each team is then given a director, and a warehouse of obstacles to work with. The idea is that all teams use the same warehouse, and same obstacles, and it is up to them to come up with the most creative piece in nine days. The winner gets the cover of the magazine and will have a spot reserved in Skate & Create 2011.
In this video submission from team adidas, Mark Gonzales, Dennis Busentiz, Benny Fairfax, Nestor Judkins, Lem Villemin, Jake Donnelly, all throw down some amazing skateboarding in some extremely creative set-ups. The director Matt Irving used creative lighting and camera angles to create a truly artistic representation of the sport.Source: Hypebeast

Drunkeness = Sunglasses indoors.
Brandeezy would agree with me
Eye See You
Mmmm, Korean ramen is #1 in my book.
