I LOVE LAS VEGAS! Over the course of a full lifetime, I’ve been to Sin City over 3 dozen times and every visit gives me renewed energy from the burning neon of The Strip. Here’s my many sordid and fabulous travel adventures to Las Vegas for you to read and enjoy!
Unless you live under a rock then you are keenly aware that our Pop Princess Britney Spears is about to set up shop and begin residency at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas beginning December 12 and continuing for two years with approximately 50+ shows of greatest hits and material from her upcoming album including #1 track Work Bitch and guess who has a ticket for opening night?! Me, that’s who!
I recently received the press release I had been waiting desperately for. Last holiday season we found ourselves enjoying the Ice Rink at the Boulevard Pool above the Las Vegas Strip at The Cosmopolitan for my birthday with our girlfriend Amber, a showgirl from the Luxor show of bombshell beauties Fantasy. The weather was stunningly crisp and just perfect for exciting rounds of skating across the iced-over pool underneath the 2995-room mega resort that we have called home the last 4 times we’ve descended on Sin City. And we’ve just now booked our next holiday excursion for Xmas because as I swear there’s no place like The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas anywhere. And here’s why…
Thanks to my good friends at All Starr Management I was able to catch up and interview RuPaul’s Drag Race breakout star and Las Vegas celebrity headliner Coco Montrese for a few personal thoughts on her new level of superstardom, what filming reality television is really like and maybe a bit more insight about the brouhaha between her and fellow contender Alyssa Edwards. I’ve interviewed many of the most popular girls from the RDR here at iamstevenmichael.com and am grateful for each one for their time and trust in what I’m doing.
I know Coco on a personal level even though distance and scheduling is often not our friend. We’ve been to see her in Frank Marino’s Divas Las Vegas at The Quad Resort and Casino twice and had planned on connecting during Christmas but the weather was too chilly for a delicate showgirl like Coco. We quickly forgave and catch up via text every so often. I’m thrilled to see her on Logo TV and know this is just a hint of great things to come for Ms. Montrese! Look for her coming soon to a city near you for her amazing impersonations and lip-sync realness! For now, I present the diva of Las Vegas turned hot reality star Coco Montrese.
Steven Michael – Coco, this conversation has been a long time coming, my love. Let’s start our engines… I know you’re busting a move between Las Vegas, appearing as a Season 5 Doll on RuPaul’s Drag Race in various cities and we hope to find out where and what else. When you’re able, how do you relax and describe the moment.
Coco Montrese - “Sometimes home with my puppies and my husband just laying on the couch watching Netflix. (laughs) Or out with my friends at a movie or bowling, hitting the great lounges at the hotels on The Strip. I’m not really in clubs much because I work in them so I don’t visit them often when I’m off work.”
I always ask this but each response is different. What’s the biggest misconception about filming reality TV?
“That it’s scripted. I can truly say it’s not scripted. It’s real, in this case of RDR for sure.”
What did you find yourself doing in between filming? I understand you’re considerably sequestered alone away from life. How lonely did you become, if at all?
“Very lonely! You spend a lot of time alone and you have a lot of time to think about life and I think that makes your emotions heighten.”
I bet emotions do run high. Type-A personalities thrown together then separated to sort it all out alone. The back together. We are routing for a few of you Ladykins this season on RDR5. Who were you genuinely excited to see when you walked in?
“Roxxxy Andrews. We’ve been friends for years and had not seen each other in ages!”
Roxxxy is doing very well! Are you happy with how you’ve been portrayed on television? Girl, you are in your eyes!
“Yes!!! I am very happy so far. It’s me and I’m real. Some people aren’t going to like someone who is real and faces issues head on. I live my life by its motto, ‘Don’t do anything to someone you don’t want done to yourself.’ I have no problem with letting someone know if I have an issue with them. I will tell them before I go tell someone else about them. I just like to keep it honest and upfront.”
Girl, trust. Would love to get into the “Coco-Alyssa Brouhaha” but with it being earlier on in the season I assume you can’t allow much due to confidentiality clauses. But… Girl, tell us the Tea. Well, pour what you can.
“You’ll have to watch that all unfold on the show!”
And many of us caught that last episode! Girl, emotions. Can you share your experience becoming Miss Gay America? Had you entered a number of times paying dues beforehand or in other systems? And what advice could you give to queens wanting to become Miss Gay America?
“I entered Miss Gay America three times in a row before I was crowned. My advice to anyone who wants to become Miss Gay America is to make sure you know what it requires and be willing to complete those task given. It’s a great responsibility and just because you are a great competitor and can win the real question is, can you reign? To win feels so good but to reign successful is how you leave your mark on the pageant industry and the world.”
I love it! The question “Can you reign?” can be interpreted many ways. I appreciate that. It’s no secret that I worship Las Vegas. If we weren’t here in Palm Springs, we’d be there. Do you love truly Sin City and does it ever become too much? It’s such a late night scene there and there are always crowds! Can it be a tough environment to stay focused and on track?
“I absolutely love LAS VEGAS! I wish I had moved here much sooner but this worked out perfect in my career at this time. I love the night life here and the day life it’s all so exciting. There’s so many people from all over the world that you just can’t get enough of this town.”
What’s happening at the new Quad Resort and Casino, former home to Imperial Palace? Is it chaos with construction and are you getting a new showroom? I loved Imperial Palace as a child. The awe of the Oriental flair. Of course this was during the days of the fabulous Dunes, Caesar’s Palace blue illumination and you could walk from the corner of MGM Grand now Bally’s straight across the street to Caesar’s moving walkway. Pre-Mirage decade of grand facade.
“The Quad Resort is taking shape right before our very eyes and it is so cool to watch it happen. DIVAS is in the same showroom which is also going through many changes for the good and the show is going stronger than ever while performing to sold out audiences and presenting new characters nightly. You never know what celebrities you’re going to see at DIVAS on and off stage!”
Yes! Last trip we were there Manila Luzon almost ran me over coming out of the bathroom. It threw me because it was actually the men’s room. What is the biggest misconception about Frank Marino? And about being a showgirl on The Strip?
“Many don’t know that Frank Marino is a wonderful man to work for with a lot of history on the Las Vegas Strip celebrating 28 years on The Strip. Many don’t know that he is a down to earth person with just as many jokes backstage as he does on stage. Biggest misconception about being a showgirl on The Strip is that you are always a DIVA. I love my sweatpants, my baseball cap, the basketball court and gym. It’s not always feathers and boas and jewels!” (giggles)
Where on The Strip do you find yourself spending time off? Any secret hotspots or fabulous hangouts we should know about?
“The Cosmopolitan Chandelier Bar, Grand Lux Palazzo and of course the Sugar Factory at Paris. My favorite spots! They know me by name at these establishments.”
Well, obviously Coco. You are a DIVA! We worship The Chandelier Bar at The Cosmopolitan. Missed ice skating there with you there at the resort last trip during Christmas. Do you have any advice to entertainers who want to submit their audition tape to RuPaul’s Drag Race? What did you do on your tape that caught the casting agents’ eyes?
“All I can say is be yourself. If you are trying to fit a mold of what someone else thinks you should be then you shouldn’t send in an audition tape. They are looking for YOU and if you can be just you then you got to find you first.”
Wisdom, gal. When are you the most comfortable, on stage in full drag under the spotlight with worshipers a’ plenty or out of gig around people who aren’t really affected by your superstardom?
“I’m kind of comfortable in both. I love life on stage and would probably die if I had to go without it. But I also enjoy my friends who don’t really even care to know the celebrity side of my life.”
I’ve tasted moments of the spotlight myself and continue to chase it in various capacities. I know where you come from. Describe the feeling when you see that Joel McHale has you featured on The Soup and strangers upload viral videos based on your time and performances on RuPaul’s Drag Race? It must be completely surreal…
“It was really weird, because I watch his show all the time and then to see yourself on it was one of those ‘fall out of your chair moments.’ Definitely created a smile from one end to the other for sure.”
How do you deal with the haters and have you come across many from being on the show? Always remember my love, “If there were no haters, there would be no lovers.”
“It’s national television and everyone isn’t gonna like you. So you’ll have haters and that’s totally OK. If you say my name anything you say after it is OK with me. You thought enough of me to say my name and that’s all I need in this wonderful world of social media!”
And finally, anything you want to say to your fans? Your precious “Marsh-Mellows.”
“Never give up on your dreams and know it’s OK to dream but it’s even better to work at making those dreams come true!”
I’m playing catch up and getting around to blogging about spending Christmas at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. It was spectacular. We arrived to a very busy Valet on Sunday the 23rd and got checked in rather quickly. We’ve always been welcomed in VIP but the lines were so swift we enjoyed the leisure of the open lobby and the people-watching Sin City always promises. After a fabulous upgrade, we arrived to our incredible suite facing the Bellagio Fountains and felt complete bliss. We were home.
I called down to the Bell Desk and asked for our bags while Jacques opened up the curtains and sliding doors. Man, I love this place. Deciding to wing it for dinner until we arrived, Jacques and I walked the resort and found our dinner plans for the weekend before having a glass of wine at the Chandelier Bar. Later that evening we had made plans to see my stunning girlfriend Amber in Fantasy at Luxor. She was fierce. Girl danced twirling circles around that grand stage. Lead singer Lorena Peril has quite the voice and carried the show like a true professional. We were so happy we attended. Afterwards we found ourselves at the neon masterpiece of Peppermill for a spot of late-night grub before turning in. Love the lights of The Strip in my distant view as I slide into slumber.
Monday we woke and hit it down towards Wynn/Encore and the Fashion Mall for a spot of shopping. We always stop at the General Store near the Sahara for souvenir buying. I got mom and myself some very fun stuff! Back at the resort we enjoyed our annual lunch at China Poblano. Taste Bud Explosion, down. We wanted to have a moment in the room with some of the showgirls and champagne because there was a delicious bottle delivered to the suite for birthday which was very generous. However, no one wanted to drink before their show so with the cool weather only Amber came over for a round of ice skating at the Ice Rink at BLVD Social Club. Translation: The swimming pool iced over for fun and frolic under the cold night’s air above the radiation of the neon bulbs of The Strip. We had a blast and it meant a lot to me that she came over and spent time with us.
Christmas Eve we had dinner at Milos inside The Cosmopolitan and it was culinary brilliance. I love seeing Jacques enjoying dinner that he finds really good. My man knows food and I’m lucky because he does. After dinner we walked The Strip before the chilly evening wind called us inside the casino for Wheel of Fortune slot machine realness. I won my money back and that was fine. The warm bed was calling my name even more than the sounds of the dropping coins.
We love Las Vegas and ALWAYS enjoy ourselves. The Cosmopolitan is the ONLY place we stay. I can’t wait to go back. #777
From my balcony view at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, I see The Strip beginning its new day of carrying hope-chasers and thrill-seekers to their next destination, translation: CASINO. As I type this quick blast of thought, I see early morning neon still burning down way at Treasure Island TI, the Bellagio Fountains have yet to begin their parade of shows and I realize I could honestly sit and look at The Strip for hours. A twinkle of chrome catches my eye or a hotel window from neighboring resorts calls my view while a low rumble of sound creates the soundtrack accented with a speeding taxi horn or the boots and hollers of party girls in heels or sexy studs out with their bros. There’s a definite winter chill in the air. Last evening I was able to wear this fabulous black velvet jacket and leather pants down to Luxor to see my dear sister Amber tear up the floor in the choreography-heavy Fantasy. Those girls are fierce and lead lady Lorena Peril has the pipes to sing many into the ground. We had a great evening ending at Peppermill for some quick late night grub then back into our warm bed while seeing The Strip wind down its day once again. A text came in from Amber saying she was heading this was to hit Marquee. It was 2 a.m. The city never sleeps… But we needed to. Off for a day of shopping, ice skating and a hot toddy or two. Mary Christmas.
And BIG THANKS to Renata in PR & The Cosmopolitan for the Birthday Champagne and hospitality. Always Fierce. X
The Husband and I always try to do something fabulous for the holidays. This year is no exception. Hello, Sin City! To know that Las Vegas is the place would be a surefire winning thought. The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is the ONLY place we find ourselves these days when traveling to The Strip. They always treat us very well and we continually have one fierce experience each and every time we arrive. We love that damn place!
We’re very excited about spinning around the Ice Rink at Blvd Social Club. I love ice skating. And above The Strip – PLEASE! I was wondering how will that work. I bet there will be platforms under the water and ice on top, or maybe even complete ice in the pool water. Looking forward to finding out! Our stunning showgirl girlfriend Amber from Fantasy at Luxor is meeting us on Christmas Eve for s’mores and hot toddies over the neon wave of The Strip with show friends while Coco Montrese from Frank Marino’s Divas Las Vegas will be bringing her husband. Iconic holiday classic White Christmas will be playing on the large digital marquee above our heads. How brilliant?! A time to make great memories.
I see that the Red Hot Chili Peppers will be there on New Years Eve. They are quite the iconic rock band. We love their music. Wish we could be there to see them since my birthday is the First of January. Nonetheless, Christmas at The Cosmo… Life doesn’t get much sweeter! Looking forward to seeing just how the resort will be decorated to the nines for the holidays. It seems booking just the right performer on NYE is crucial to a successful night. It’s quite the business there in Las Vegas. I see that being the trend. Last year we arrived on the First and the billboards paved the highways into Las Vegas exciting visitors and locals alike of New Year’s Eve celebrity headliners. No doubt it’s the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ timelessness that makes them such a great fit at The Cosmopolitan.
The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is such an original. Any fan of my blog or my magazine columns know that it’s THE place I stay over all others. There’s nothing that compares to it. There are other amazing resorts on The Strip and we’ve stayed at them all. But when you slide the balcony doors open to feel the warm radiation that all the neon love provides or have that view of the Bellagio fountain show exploding in front of your very eyes, there’s no place I’d rather be in the world.
I have to admit that after our initial visit to the resort when I covered it for the magazine and blog for the very first time, I’ve been obsessed with everything The Cosmopolitan is about. The staff treated us so well and with such respect that they’ve created a fan for life. The VIP treatment was impeccable and was like nothing I’d experienced before. I was overwhelmed and didn’t want to leave. We NEVER do. From culinary deliciousness of Scarpetta to the hidden gem pizza place on the 3rd floor, The Cosmopolitan provides that pure adult playground atmosphere with class and trendy refinement. I always thank them for the never-ending attention and generous courtesy always provided for Jacques and I.
When it comes to hot and scorching advert campaigns, few do it like Mandalay Bay Resort Casino in Las Vegas. I LOVE VEGAS! (There I said it!) Last time we took the monorail over and couldn’t help but notice the suggestive photo murals draping the elevators of 2 gorgeous women on one side inside a jacuzzi and 2 equally handsome men on the other. Makes you wonder who is in charge of this marketing and who they are catering to. Nonetheless they know what they’re doing. It is Sin City! I’m certain that you’ve seen the Bathhouse pictorial Mandalay Bay used a few years ago of the the younger Asian twink shooing his smooth glutes while daddy bear leaned in the forefront. Sexy Back, for reals!
If I saw the 5 stunners above walking towards me looking like they look I’d fall into the marble their delicious flip-flopped feet are walking across. It’s hard to decide what order I’d “introduce” myself to first. Ah, 5, 3, 2, 1, 4… But who’s counting? This picture is too damn hot! I wonder where they’re coming from. Visit Mandalay Bay Las Vegas during your next trip to Las Vegas!
THIS IS THE PLACE!
Find out what everyone is talking!
Now where in the world would people get the idea that this place is cruisy and rumored to be a considerably gay clientele? Not sure, but this is not only subjective but suggestive. I’m loving it! I believe it’s the advert that will never die.
Next visit to Sin City schedule and plan a relaxing trip to the Bathhouse at The Hotel in Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino. You let me know how good of a time you have. Send me a postcard!
And remember, what happens in Vegas could end up here. So tell me EVERYTHING! I’ll be waiting…
It was around 8:15 on Saturday evening as we were finishing up homemade pizza when my iPhone alerted me to new mail. And “Bing! Bam! Boom! I won the tickets.” Well, a dear friend sent me a message saying he had an extra two tickets to the White Party 3-D and wanted to know if I wanted them. Brett and I had spoke earlier in the week about me not going because the tickets were outrageous and that there was no media love tossed my way this year. He figured I’d enjoy them since he was unable to use them. And he was right!
It all overwhelmed me for a minute until I got my bearings and pressed up the street to pick the generous and thoughtful gifts up from our dear friend. We had NO intention on going and it was the furtherest thing from our minds, the Husband and I. When I returned home, we closed our eyes for about an hour before pulling it together for Jeffrey Sanker’s 2012 White Party.
Giving the “self parking” for $6 the true ig, we parked around the corner and strutted up around to the entrance of the party dressed in white dress shirts, jeans and boots. Once inside we ran into good friend Cool Bensen and his partner Kelly from the Hotlanta days who now lives in Hollywood working on television. We danced off and on with them all night. When I used to choreograph the female impersonators and entertainers of Atlanta, and Hotlanta River Expo pageants Mr. and Miss Hotlanta, Cool was one of my amazing dancers. It was great to reconnect with him.
Lisa Vanderpump from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was reigning supreme as “Queen of the White Party” dressed in a stunning white ball gown next to promoter Jeffrey Sanker who I believe was named honorary mayor of Palm Springs for the weekend. How generous and rich it all became by the end of the weekend, I hear. The dynamic duo Nervo were spinning the pumping music and really gave tons of genuine energy and attention to the dance floor. They were a highlight, for sure. Jacques and I stood under their booth and just watched them work beats into magic.
There were scantily clad boys in lighted feathered wing realness, film legend Matthew Rush looking better than ever, video performer Paul Wagner looking delicious and overdressed in comparison to everyone else, Madame Vanderpump’s infamous dog “Giggy” being carried around by husband Ken, daddylicious Scott Cullens who I had a great scream with about mentioning him and his new beau (which they found very funny) in my blog earlier in the day, among thousands of Palm Springs’ hottest visitors who carried on into the wee hours twirling lighted sticks and Tron-inspired costumery
Since we never planned on spending the money to see main performer Mary J Blige before receiving the nice freebies, we had NO qualms about leaving after about 3 hours o’ fun and dance floor frolic. I like her music but not enough to wait around another reportedly hour or so to see her. Um, no… I’m sure she was superb and very special but we were already home in bed asleep with visions of Sugar Daddies dancing in our heads when she hit the stage at the convention center near 3 a.m. Way past our bedtime! You’d have to have a bunch of “caffeine,” yeah – that’s it, to stay up in to these party hours. Not us. Not no more. Been there, done that! Still have the shady pictures to prove it!
On Sunday, friends discovered pool parties and recovered from the prior evening by the sunshine to dry out. Later in the day we headed over to Michael Crisp’s stunning home that he shares with his partner Kenny for their multi-annual Booze N Nutz party with a few hundred of their closest friends while everyone else in town hit it to the infamous T-Dance. $130 to stand, rather dance, on some grassy knoll that is normally free to walk on. And from what I heard there were technical issues that were hard to avoid. Again, um… no.
Michael had brought in the staff from his Las Vegas hotspot Share Nightclub and Ultra Lounge to revel in the spirit and dressed them in skimpy underwear and Speedos. They were the party! Plus, I love me some Michael Crisp. Gorgeous and so generous! Was having a great time until some condescending See-You-Next-Tuesday decided to waltz by me and felt like stating the facts, said “Oh, look. It’s the gym employee.” I thought to myself, you tired little man. You have NO idea who I even am. Still working on a voodoo doll in her honor. Overall the energy was up and everyone joyful while surrounding the tables of SKYY vodka and bowls of nuts while getting their early evening buzz on.
Since we were in the true celebratory spirit of the weekend and hearing from BFF Bob Taylor that my dear sisters Latrice Royale and Chad Michaels from RuPaul’s Drag Race were performing at Toucans later in the eve, Jacques and I decided to catch the first show and say Hello to the girls. We never go out much so it was a crazy weekend for us. Luckily, we breezed past the line that was waiting to get in compliments of a confidant as I felt virtual daggers flying into my neck as we scooted past all VIP. I do not do lines… to get in clubs. Ah-ha! I knew where you were going with your thoughts. No Tea – No Shade.
Luckily crowd-control was in full effect and I could actually get to the entertainers and tip them while they performed. Chad Michaels brought his Cher illusion and I have one thing to say… CHAD IS CHER! Wow. He is AMAZE. Latrice whurqed the crowd into a screaming frenzy when she got on the microphone and told her crowd that she was feeling the love they were giving her. Madame Royale really has come along way since humble days of her South Florida beginnings when I first met her. We spoke briefly afterwards and made plans to do an interview for my blog. Little did I know that she would be the next eliminated Doll on RuPaul’s Drag Race the next night. I was sad to see that… Nonetheless, Latrice Royale IS a drag superstar.
On our way home we decided to swing by and catch the finale fireworks at the T-Dance but alas, all we saw were shirtless hunkage spilling out of the open arena and into cars and hotels for a continuance of the party. After soaking up some sightings of men-on-men action spread across the way, my convertible Mustang found its way back home safely. Good memories and new sense of self and being are what we’re taking away from the moment. Thanks to Brett for kicking it all into gear!
Overall the White Party weekend was quite the celebration considering we had NO plans on doing any of it. Spontaneity is key to creating excitement without the dreaded realization of “Uh, why did we make these plans!” With rumors swirling that Jeffrey Sanker has been allegedly trying to sell the mega-event for a few years now, I was happy that we were able to take part in this year’s festivities, just in case the rumors were true. Allegedly, of course. This weekend has been bringing in needed revenue (and hot men) to Palm Springs for years and no matter what happens to it, it’s only been good for our community and spirit. Thanks to everyone who made it happen. Hope to see everyone next year, again!
I’m bringing you all the dish, dirt and detail of my recent trip to Sin City. Escape with me if you will to the adult playground Las Vegas. Arriving on Saturday afternoon, the husband and I checked in to our ultra-sleek accommodations at Palms Place. Floor to ceiling windows gave us quite a spectacular view of the Strip from a far. Palms Resort and Casino is up the street away from the Strip which is both good and bad for the Sin City traveler. Good, because you’re not in the chaotic bustle of Strip traffic and can get in and out of the three towers with plenty of self-parking in front of the resort. Bad, because you miss much of the feeling one gets by being in the hustle of the Las Vegas Strip, the energy and power of the neon above you.
At Palms Place, the accommodations are co-op so the condo-style of our hotel room with expansive kitchen was in keeping with the fact that it was a timeshare owned condominium. Unfortunately the balcony doors didn’t open which was such a tease! Explained by our bellman that with the lower than norm room rates found at the Palms and Palms Place becoming more known and possible, younger crowds came in and wreaked havoc by tossing bottles off balconies, etc. He admitted that business had waned slightly once they locked them up.
We wandered over to Palms for dinner at Little Buddha which has fed us before. Sushi and sake, naturally. The concierge got us great reservations! Later in the evening the grand opening of Palm Springs personality Michael Crisp’s newest premiere LGBTQ hotspot, Share Nightclub and Ultra Lounge was happening nearby so we figured Palms Place was a good choice in home for the night. Plus, the city of Las Vegas was giving an official proclamation celebrating Share Weekend so we HAD to be there.
Share Nightclub and Ultra Lounge opened in the finale of last year but their grandest of openings that happened on Saturday evening was, as they say, Spectacular! Spectacular! The crowds were packed up inside the new LGBTQ destination with scantily clad dancers busting-a-move on platforms and inside private cabanas upstairs. You see, Share Nightclub boasts the fierce fact that they have an adult entertainment license so the go-go and shot boys are able to really go the extra mile to please the clientele. I was ready for some (first and only Showgirls reference) Nomi Malone action, trust. A few of the dancers did make us feel quite welcomed.
There was quite a scroll of celebrities set to appear. During our out-later-than-normal-for-us evening at Share I observed comedian Ross Matthews who was hosting the event and looking svelte and lean. Carson Kressley, who I saw nose buried in his smartphone being led through the Palms Place lobby earlier, now busy being dragged around Share by an entourage of photographers. Adam Bouska and his NOH8 campaign was busy applying logo tattoos on faces and taking portraits for equality awareness. Everyone’s spirits were up and fabulous all night!
Drag superstar and Las Vegas darling Frank Marino and his Divas Las Vegas cast came barreling in and caused quite a stir in the VIP area, bulbs flashing. Luciana was smashing in green glitz and getting ready to perform her smash “I’m Still Hot.” Q Vegas editor Benjamin Lemkie was sexy to the core while a smathering of Palm Springs locals trekked over in support looking for a good time. That’s just to name a few! Michael Crisp really knows what works. When it comes to an elite nightclub experience, Share Nightclub and Ultra Lounge is where you want to be in Sin City! Could a Share Ultra Resort and Casino be next?!
Sunday we moved over to The Cosmopolitan where our amazing Terrace Suite on the 49th floor overlooked the magnificent Bellagio fountains. Impeccable service and class all the way is always found at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. After a delicious dinner at Scapetta, we caught the 9 o’clock show of Vegas: The Show at Planet Hollywood across the street. Offering everything one thinks symbolic of Las Vegas, the fabulous show is chock full of strong vocalists, high on hard choreography done to perfection by sexy male dancers and lead showgirl Tara who shines brightest in the newest must-see production on the Strip. A great finale to an amazing trip.
I have been all a Twitter about our upcoming trip to Las Vegas, Sin City, my out-of-town town. Preoccupied would be such an understatement, however, I digress. One more day of work and then I’m off for three as we two hit it to the Strip. Saturday brings an always welcomed road trip with the man I love to the place I worship. Always have, always will. After checking in at the gorgeous and privately sleek Palms Place, we’ll grab some wonderful dinner at Palms Resort Casino and head to the grand opening of Share Nightclub and Ultra Lounge until the wee hours if we can make out late. I’m ready for some serious Nomi Malone action on my lap from a private dancer. Honesty, please.
The celebrities from the Gay Mafia will be in attendance on the red carpet and I’ll be telling all with vivid detail and delicious dish. Sunday we’re moving over to The Cosmopolitan for our second night. We couldn’t be in Las Vegas and not stay there one night. Heaven. We’ll be seeing Vegas: The Show at Planet Hollywood and then a nightcap somewhere. Hate me. I would. Details soon! ♠♣♥♦
I consider myself a true connoisseur of everything fierce happening in Gay Pop Culture News and LGBT Trends. Living in Palm Springs provides me generous exposure to what's happening in Hollywood and L.A. through trusted industry insiders. My opinions form here through my published works.
During travel adventures to Las Vegas and beyond I develop stories about what trends are hot and what celebrities are not in Entertainment, Travel, Fashion, Gay Dance Music and Reality TV.
