Vegas Mate Review of the Week
This Week’s review is a collection from Hank and Jr that he wrote on Dec 5th as he apparently toured the Cosmopolitan and found a way to succinctly describe much of it.

Twitpic of the week

This week’s winner is @Fleming_Clan for a picture that not only showcases the famous Caesars Palace fountains and her property but also evokes many memories.  First, I don’t know if anyone who listens to this show isn’t familiar with this view.  Odds are, you have a picture in front of the exact place.  It’s taken from the strip, looking west at the property with a view of her porte cochere and original tower beyond the fountains. The photo also reminds me of the history of that property and all that it has developed around the original concept.  Lastly, it reminds me of one of my favorite pictures of my wife in Vegas.  I have a picture of her in this exact spot wearing an insanely hot little black dress looking as adorable as ever.  It’s a picture that means more to me than I think she will ever know.
