Vegas Getaway - 2012!

We had a needed and well-deserved Vegas get-away this elongated week-end.  Lots of highlights but the best was just Steph and I getting to spend some time together without the kids - who were in great hands with Mimi and Grandpa.

The trip featured some great music as we saw Elton John perform at Caesar's Palace on April 19... followed by the Eagles at MGM on April 21!   Both were pretty amazing considering they are all ~65 years old.

Here we are outside our hotel...Aria

By checking bags and flying Southwest we get to leverage all levels of the new terminal in the Sacramento airport.  The highlight, of course, is the ultra cool bounding red rabbit.

Our first attempt at a self portrait in our room didn't quite work out.  Sometimes those are the best though!

Worth Checking Out

There's a new restaurant in town making and interesting claim relating to their biscuits and gravy. I'll follow up on this and report back to the blog.

Ole's Big Game Bar

Traveling through Paxton, NE last week, I finally visited a place I'd heard about for years called Ole's Big Game Bar. The place was opened in 1933 by a guy named Rosser O. Herstedt, who went by Ole. Ole traveled the globe in the 30's and 40's killing increasingly exotic animals. He brought them back to hang in the bar. The collection of more than 200 dead animals is neat, though depressing. The food is good. I had the chicken fried chicken. My buddy had prime rib. Ole's has had at least one celebrity visitor - Jack Dempsey.

Dukes of Hazard: Every Jump

Every kid of the 70's and 80's loved this show. The General Lee is a timeless classic. Here's every jump in the show's first 6 seasons. Awesome! After every jump they retired the car and brought in a new one. They went through more than 60 General Lee's during the life of the show.
