Vegas, Baby! Burgers, Baby!

`



"Vegas, Baby!" That's how many-a-bad-weekend has started. You go off feeling so money, only to return with no money and feeling so Minnesota. This bipolar nexus with the land of the one-armed bandit is primarily due to the amateur-hour factor of youngins hittin' the town with nary (or barely) a buck in their pocket, no real plans for a good time, and coming home with the case of the "lost wages" blues.

That's why many folks (viz., the grown-up version of your former college self) look to websites like LuxeVegas.com (a website I co-founded, which is more Vegas than luxe, unfortunately these days) to help them plan ahead and to get that all important "front of line service." You not only want to feel money, but you want to be able to get into a nice club or restaurant and spend your money now that you're out of your college days and have a dwindling 401(k) burning a hole in your portfolio. Go on! Playing craps in Vegas could not be worse than what happened that last 18 mos. to your money market accounts (am I right?! ... kidding ... barely). Planning ahead is key to having fun in Vegas. But, you don't want to over plan and agenda yourself out of any spontaneity. Play it loosey-goosey and let the player in you fly his/her freak flag and see who salutes it, cowgirl. And, when you've made the rounds and painted the town red (or mauve), you'll need a nice burger (with bacon and cheese and grilled onions piled high!) and fries and a $10.00 milkshake (which is only $7.00 -- look at that, you're already up $3.00!!) to top-off the night or start the morning.

BLT Burger will handle that nicely for you, plus, their website is very retro-cool with the cool soundrack, à la Pulp Fiction. (Click just above to go there now.) But, if all else fails, and you're finding yourself cash-poor and crazy hungry, there is no better burger on the planet than In-n-Out Burger, which now has locations in Las Vegas. And, the price is right, dear friend. Oh, and if you've really hit the town a bit too hard (and nothing is staying in Vegas for ya), just look at the bottom of your soda and read the Bible verse ... then, take two milkshakes and you should feel better in the morning.

Burgers, baby!
