You know Vegas is a strange place. I made the trip there to celebrate my friend Michael's birthday. There were 18 of us total with his friends from Chicago and friends from California joining together. We went the weekend of the opening round of the NCAA basketball tournament so you can image there was some money exchanging hands. It was truly a wonderful weekend and went to prove you really are a reflection of who you are friends with. Despite most of us meeting each other for the first time, only having Michael in common, it was like we all knew each other for years. A blast.
