I passed the holiday week in Las Vegas (if youre wondering why, see this article), where overheard conversations are very different from my adopted home town of McLean, VA. When I cruise the asiles in Safeway in McLean, I typiccally hear wives talking about getting the kids to soccer games, or the latest scoop on the newest day spa.
In a Las Vegas grocery store, youre more like to hear something like this: Kid--"Mom, can I have some candy?" Mom--"I just need to get a bottle of vodka and gthen were goiing home."
Mananged to get in several shows of one of our favorite local Vegas bands, the Pete Contino Band. Go see them next time youre in Vegas; they usually play Wednesday nights at the Orleans casino.
And then dont miss our favorite all-girl band, Killians Angels. Yes, theyre named for the beer.
