Mom Takes The Cosmopolitan

What do you get when you take two fabulously gay husbands on their second honeymoon and their mother from Nashville who hasn’t been to Las Vegas in over 25+ years? I’ll let you know this Thanksgiving when Jacques and I treat my mother Betty to a trip like she’s never seen before! She’s already up in grand thoughts of slot machine winnings and Sin City soaking while reveling in the comforted joy that will be breathtaking at The Cosmopolitan. She hasn’t been to Vegas since Bally’s was the MGM Grand and you could walk to Caesar’s Palace straight across the street from corner to corner. Let that sink in. …

Christmas Las Vegas – Holiday Magic

Picture it. Las Vegas, Nevada. Last Christmas. Now granted that’s not so long ago but I never spilled the deal about our fabulous trip to Sin City during the festive holidays. To follow me here is to know that we love Vegas and Vegas loves us. We have stayed at The Cosmopolitan the last seven (!!!!!!!) times we’ve been to the neon marquee jungle of excess and recess for adults. We see ourselves at few other resorts. No other place compares to The Cosmo. …

Top Trends 2014 – My Year Rewind

With the increasing flow of news media today there’s many places you can find statistically speaking official charts of top stories of 2014. I love that reflection we take of the year past and hopeful optimism of the one to come. Here at my domain I chose to remember those moments in my own gay pop culture lexicon and personal life to chart as the top moments that gave me life in 2014. …

Snow at The Cosmopolitan Las Vegas

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening? On The Strip, snow will be glistening. A beautiful sight, happiness at night. Ice skating in a winter wonderland. The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, our home away from home when tearing through Sin City, will be soon turning its Boulevard Pool into a beautiful big sheet of ice to home Ice Rink starting today 11/21 through 01/04. To follow me here online is to also know that my husband Jacques and I head to Las Vegas…

The Best Time Las Vegas Can Offer

When we arrived last Saturday afternoon to The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas I was truly elated! I know Jacques was happy to get out of town for a few days and it’s always good for us to have this great escape. The Cosmopolitan is our home away from home when in Sin City. It is special to us and we feel proud to say we stay there. This trip was no exception. And like a friend on Facebook said in response to one of my “look at me I’m in Vegas” posts, what happens in Vegas is shared on my Facebook wall. Here’s what you missed… …

Las Vegas Rocks Our World This Weekend

My man and I are heading to Las Vegas tomorrow for some culinary revelry at Scott Conant’s “Italian Heaven” Scarpetta inside our weekend home, The Cosmopolitan. We have stayed at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas the last six trips we’ve made to Sin City and we would have it no other way. I’ve written countless words of worship about the place. Here’s a few more! …

The Linq Opens High Roller in Las Vegas

I just booked our annual “Jacques Birthday/Our Anniversary” trip to Sin City for adventures in June. Las Vegas provides us an escape from reality, a leap into culinary overload and the euphoric feeling only exciting bright marquees lining the Strip can provide as they light-up at dusk. We will be staying at… wait for it. …

What’s Going On in Popular Culture Now

As we reach the finale of January, Mother Nature nails Atlanta with Highway Snowpocalypse 2014 leaving stranded motorists in cars for hours upon hours sitting on icy impassible freeways. And since some departed their cars and began to walk to rescue, deserted cars now scatter the roads for messy clean-up. As winter provides the frigid temperatures creating chilly cold throughout the north and southeast, we lucky ones in California are hanging in with typically warm days. …

A New Year Brings New Opportunities

When the new year comes around many things happen. I turn another year better and am reminded of childhood birthdays past when I would receive one gift for both Christmas and Birthday which completely royally sucked. I’ve told (and loving telling) the story about being the third baby born in 1968 in Nashville, TN. They forced labor on a woman who won the prizes for birthing the first of the year and at eighteen I graduated high school with her son. Music City U.S.A. is a small, small world. …

Britney Spears Rocks Planet Hollywood Las Vegas

I was hoping to take a hot minute or two off from it all upon my return from our Sin City Christmas but since everyone has chimed in about Britney Spears’ opening night of her 100-show residency at Planet Hollywood, it’s my turn. Granted my seat wasn’t as close as say Miley Cyrus’ 50-yard-line worshiping center of Britney’s universe but I could see just fine. That’s considering I was on my feet 95% of the show. …
