Blue, baby!

Just bought tix for the Blue Man Group show in Vegas for Mike's 30th birthday.

Has anyone ever seen them in concert?

Any tips for Vegas, anyone? I kinda feel funny going there -- like I'm doing something bad -- gambling was a BIG sin when I was growing up.

These days, I guess I view it in two ways:
- pure entertainment
- just stupid, like I'm throwing my money away.

But Mike & I are reasonably intelligent people, right? It's not like we're going to be gambling away the house or anything - we're spending a (very!) limited, pre-decided upon amount of cash, and that's that.

You will have so much fun in Vegas- I went 5 years ago and didn't gamble hardly at all. So much to see and do- go to the Bellagio- they have an incredible art glass ceiling in the main lobby and free conservatory with seasonal floral displays. The Venetian is very beautiful too. My goals for Vegas were #1) get my picture taken with an Elvis impersonator #2) Witness a cheesy wedding #3) Eat at a buffet- all of which i had accomplished within 12 hours of arriving!

When I was at Malone, I often was assigned readings that I thought, "Oh, my. I can't believe I've been assigned this at a Christian college," because it was either risque, horrific, or vulgar. I learned one key thing from those experiences: just because you're IN the world (either mentally or physically) that doesn't mean you have to be OF that world. I was intelligent enough to keep myself separated and/or not influenced by ideas. You are too. Just enjoy Vegas for what it is, and appreciate it as a novelty.

Oh, and I've been to a Casino once and played with only $1 for hours. I walked out with $1.10. At least I walked away with more than I put in.=)

Ask Dave, my husband about it. He's got a whole argument worked out about free drinks, entertainment and playing the low cash tables and nickle slots. Basically it's: as long as you don't go crazy on throwing away money, a night out at the casinos can be just as cheap or cheaper than a dinner date and a movie.

Vegas is so much fun, and you don't need to spend all your time gambling. Besides, like anything else, playing slots or roulette or poker or whatever gets boring after a while. Be sure to check out the dancing fountains at the Bellagio. Take a gondola ride at the Venetian. Check out the Shops at the Forum at Caesar's Palace. Don't forget to look for Elvis! And like Megan said, play the nickel slots. I thought they were just as much fun as the $5 ones.
