The Last Day

David and I are having an extraordinary time here in Las Vegas. Since this is David's first trip everything is exciting and new for him ... and with the way he shopped yesterday at Caesar's Palace, you'd think he never shopped before. We're having a blast ... Last night we went out to see Prince at the 3121 at the Rio and were pretty much blown away (altho, we were also a little blown away by the ticket price -- $312.10!). I've seen Prince many, many times and he never fails to deliver. It was David's first Prince concert and I believe he was impressed. There was a strict no cameras policy in effect at the club but I managed to snap a few camera phones pictures to share:


The club is pretty intimate with video screens all around the venue. DJ Rashida spins until Prince takes the stage. There was a little video homage to James Brown and then Prince came out. He played a bunch of great songs (even said from the stage, "So many hits, so little time.") opening with 3121 and including Boys and Girls, Purple Rain, Lolita, Black Sweat, Kiss, covers of Everyday People and Play That Funky Music, If I Was Your Girlfriend, Pink Cashmere, U Got The Look, Let's Go Crazy and more! When he did Cream I about lost it! It was just a kickass show. Those of you who saw Prince in the late 90's may remember that he sold O(+> tambourines and for this show he is offering 3121 tambourines -- which of course I couldn't not get :)

The show is definitely worth seeing -- I fully plan on coming back to Vegas to see the show again.

David and I were surprised this morning with a wonderful Xmas/Hanukkah/NYE gift from Jim which was delivered to our room and we plan on spending the rest of the day enjoying that gift together. I'll have my last Year-End Wrap-Up post of the year later on today ... my personal memories of 2006.

Tonight, David and I are partying with Britney Spears at Pure nightclub here in Las Vegas ... it promises to be a great time.

I'm planning on getting things back to normal on Tuesday ... so until then ... have a very Happy and Safe New Year ... Much love to all y'all!

I'm out.
