Holiday Planning Las Vegas Style

Ah, the holidays! Such a joyous time to reminisce with loved ones over a glass of spiked egg nog or perhaps a skate around the Boulevard Pool at The Cosmopolitan. Yes, skating across waters above the Strip of Sin City. Unheard of?! Well, then you haven’t visited Las Vegas during the wintery holidays on our near horizon. Now the waters of course are iced over for the blades of skates to whisk festive resort revelers across as the neon and LED screens of the Strip below make for the only selfie-taking senecio! …

Behind the Scenes of Male Pageantry

Another year of #USofA male pageantry for the record books. Wow, where to begin?! There’s definitely been a few proud highs and more lows than I feel strong enough to mention here. But I will. Sorry to be so dramatic but “it’s been a year.” I guess it begins at the beginning of my run to become Mr. Gay USofA 2016. Perhaps before that in my first year where I made the Top 12 in ’14, dancing alone in San Antonio at nationals shocking everyone including myself. Then last year bringing my fabulous girls from L.A. to dance for the kids in Texas where I made the Top 12, once more, placing even higher than before. …

Celebrating Fourth Of July in Las Vegas

Firecracker! Firecracker! Boom, boom, boom! Firecracker! Firecracker! Boom, boom, boom! The boys got the muscles (in Sin City, everywhere gorgeously), the teacher’s got the brains (I’ll teach you all of the sins of this city), the girls got the skinny legs (atop Christian Louboutin stilettos, inside freakum dresses) and we won the game (each trip to The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is always a WIN!) Here’s the sordid story of our fabulous trip to the Strip of Las Vegas for their Fourth of July celebration. …

Celebrating California Queens 2016

I just retuned from a two-day stint in Long Beach where I judged two of the Miss Gay California USofA pageants held at Executive Suite Nightclub on Pacific Coast Highway. I had one ki-ki of a good-ass time. Yes, Gawd! Alongside drag icon Tommie Ross, fellow Brother in Shine Xavier Valentino, my new Good Judy Andrew T. Michael and Miss Gay California USofA Newcomer promoter Alyssa Nicole Whitney, I assisted in crowning our new title holders: Flame Monroe – Miss Gay California USofA ’16 and The Legendary Misty Knight – Miss Gay California USofA Classic ’16. …

Happy Holidays at The Cosmopolitan

Even though we brought mom into Las Vegas for Thanksgiving, the husband and I decide we needed a trip for ourselves. So we booked another one bedroom terrace suite at The Cosmopolitan, scheduled a few dinners at the resort and looked ahead to arriving Christmas Eve for a few days and nights of chilly Sin City debauchery. My good brother Brandon and his girl Megan were also heading over so we planned on connecting with them for some food, drink and memories. …

When Grown Men Chase Crowns

What does it take to enter a contest or pageant and run for a national title? You may think you have an idea but there’s so much that goes into it that no one sees. Until now. I’m going to give you my tale, take and takeaway from this year’s Mr. Gay USofA competition in San Antonio, Texas., from a competitor’s point of view. Mine. My story may be quite similar or surprisingly different than my fellow contestants, but it’s my version and I mean no offense or foul to anyone by anything I share. What happens when grown gay men chase a prestigious pageant crown?! Somethings I’ll keep to myself. Everything else will be told. Here’s what happens…

Taking On Circus Circus Las Vegas

I just returned from a quick trip over to Las Vegas where I stayed at the past-its-prime Circus Circus Hotel and Casino. Now, to be a fan and follower of my blog here you know I am a faithful follower of The Cosmopolitan and have stayed there the last seven times we’ve been to Sin City. However, it may be eight. I’ve lost count. But since this was a business trip I was on a budget and opted to save some coins and find an alternative. Through my membership at Last Minute Travel Club online I found myself reserving a room in the Casino Tower…

That’s Right! I’m Super Gay Married.

It’s been two-weeks since my man Jacques made an honest (wo)man out of me. I’M MARRIED! Officially all kinds of gay married, tho. WOW! Where do I start?! Well, once upon a time a shy southern boy growing up in the Bible Belt in Nashville dreamed…. OK, OK! Not that far back! Ah, the memories of my husband and I. They are so fond in my heart, mind and soul. Here’s the story… …

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. …

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…
