Seen and Heard--Vegas Style!

Location(s): A dueling piano bar in the New York New York casino and Le Cabaret (a bar w/ dancefloor) in the Paris Casino

Heard: "Don't Stop Believin'" in both locations.

So the only thing that makes this particular Seen and Heard "Vegas style" is that it took place in Vegas. Otherwise, it would be just like any other Seen and Heard. No showgirls came out and performed a kick line; Carrot Top didn't appear with a trunk full of Journey-themed props and give a show (although he was on my flight out to Sin City. Um, hello, can we say good vacay omen?). But that doesn't mean it was any less entertaining. Rather, the performance by the dueling pianists at New York New York was joined by a chorus of drunken voices singing the song at the top of their lungs, and in Paris, people were shaking their groove thang (awkwardly) to it. On both occassions, friends were made; lovers were in drunken love; money was lost, both at the casino and at the bar; but a good time was still had by all. And those who had gambled and drank away their life's savings were kind enough to sob in private so as not to kill the mood for the rest of us. Viva Las Vegas.
