  • What Happens In Vegas… Part 2

    What Happens In Vegas… Part 2

    We spent New Years Eve in Las Vegas, the epitome of American excess, the adult Disney, the divorce capital of the world, the place where savings accounts go to die… This is part 2 of our trip, if you missed it, check out Part 1 before reading this. Day 3 – December 30, 2012 After a long,…

    What Happens In Vegas… Part 1

    The only way this post could start off any more cliche is if I somehow worked the phrase “Vegas, baby… Vegas” into it. I’m not going to do that. Instead, we’re just going to go back and start at the beginning, the beginning of a trip that would forever change the lives of 16 people,…
