Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas

By April 5, 2011April 6th, 2011One Comment

About one year ago, a really good friend of mine from school announced he was marrying his sweetheart. In an incredible act of genius, he announced that in 1 year from that day, he’d take his best mates to Las Vegas for one kick-ass bachelor party. Insert 14 of my best and oldest friends, 15 hour plane rides from various parts of the world, 14 Hugo Boss suits; and this is what happened when that day finally arrived!

New York, New York casinos. One of the biggest and right next door to MGM Grand where we stayed.

Firing an M249 S.A.W. at a firing range in old town. Apparently civilians can buy these guns!

Nick and me being awesome everywhere we went.

A genuine Buick RoadMaster Estate Wagon. With wood coloured wallpaper so thick you can smell the vanish.

Americans really know how to do sneakers.

The mega fountain outside the Bellagio Casino. Right next door to the Cosmopolitan casino (my personal favourite).

The Las Vegas Wranglers. We watched them claim victory at the Fiesta Rancho stadium. Ice-hockey is such a cool sport.

We also caught the NAMAUU vs BARRAGAN fight at the Rio the next night.

Wild times everywhere we went.

With 14 of us, limos were a necessity and used frequently.

Lazing by the pool after breakfast was always worth it.

So after only 5 days in Las Vegas I’m fairly sure we ticked off everything to do there, in and out of the casinos. We managed to see ice-hockey, boxing, Cirque de Soleil, David Copperfield’s show, the awesome ‘Bodies’ exhibit at the Luxor Museum as well as drive downtown to see the 900m rooftop tv-screen at Freemont Street, visiting the Gun Store to fire obscenely big machine guns and also hit the greatest clubs on the planet such as Wet Republic at MGM, Marquee @ Cosmopolitan and even managed a few of us to get in the semi-finals of the Blackjack competition at the upstairs Playboy Club. I think Las Vegas might just be my favourite place ever….
