VEGAS Saturday Nights

12 Jun

Last week, I was pleasantly surprised to receive an invitation to the VEGAS Magazine 9th Anniversary party hosted by GRAMMY Awardwinning artist Kelly Rowland at the Boulevard Pool at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. I haven’t attended an anniversary party for the publication since March 2008 when I last worked with Greenspun Media Group as a publicist in the marketing department. I was looking forward to attending because I knew it was going to be a reunion of sorts seeing former colleagues.

Originally, my handsome other half, James, and I were hosting a cocktail party I themed Rieslings & Rosès’ (a theme he laughs at, but that’s a future post), anyway, we decided to post pone it when half our list was already committed to attending the event. We started out having dinner with Nevada Ballet Theatre PR dynamo Jenn Kratochwill and her husband Chris at Sen of Japan, a hidden gem I found by a simple Google search and a place I’ve driven by many times over the years and never stopped to try it out. My mistake! It has some of the freshest sushi I’ve tasted in a long while. My other favorite forward thinking place is Sushi Wa in Henderson (Try both. You’ll thank me later.)

After dinner we head to the Strip amidst thousands of other party-goers heading to either the Electric Daisy Carnival at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, the Manny Pacquiao vs. Timothy Bradley fight at the MGM Grand or this party. Not to mention all the beauty industry peeps in town for the International Beauty Show (IBS Las Vegas.) To say it was a madhouse at every stop is an understatement.

Once we finally find a parking space deep beneath the resort, we make our way to the East Deck. As soon as I walked in I run into friends/coworkers from back in the day: Josef Vann who is now publisher, the very bubbly bride-to-be Katy Ball, and former Kirvin Doak superstars Michele St. Angelo and Kala Peterson. The list goes on.

After a night in the wind, we are all starving and head to Secret Pizza. It’ was now close to 2am and I had no more energy which made me grouchy. Needless to say, my feet ached the next day after seven hours in 5 inch heels, but it was worth it!

Thanks for reading.
