    hey all, i'll be flying into vegas for the punk rock bowling festival over MDW. i'll be bringing a few bottles with me and possibly looking for places to grab a drink or crack a bottle. are there any shops worth a damn around the strip or downtown? not really into $14 beers in a casino beer bar, but i'm planning on crushing a bourbonic with a steak dinner at one point over the weekend. how's the scene?

    looks like upright blend love and something from cascade is making the trip. if any of you LV locals are looking for portland brews, i should have room in my checked bag for more bottles. seeing as i'm new to these parts, it probably wouldn't hurt to do a few favors for anyone wanting something they can't find. let me know!

    got one trade lined up, able to do one more. word is pliny is gonna hit pdx this week or next, if you're into that kinda thing (not that there's anything wrong with that.)

    still hoping cascade releases bourbonic plague within the next few weeks...

    I am an Ale Apothecary Reserve Member and let me tell you that Paul has been making some amazing beers and they are somewhat under the radar. Watch out for these guys in a couple years.

    be careful with escorts though, you really need to go over the terms before you pay

    Shady deals behind the El Cortez are a thing of the past. Downtown Vegas is not what it used to be. Sadly.

    Pabst and hipsters is what downtown Vegas is nowadays. The bars are a good time but not touristy.

    Unless you have no "game" or are lazy I've never understood the reason for escorts. Get drunk go out and chances are you probably can find an equally drunk tourist in Vegas and have a good time that won't get you arrested or robbed.

    it makes sense of you're rich and busy, or if there is a porn star you want to bang who escorts, also some guys don't have game to get decent looking women, but yeah I agree, if you can't get laid in vegas something is wrong

    hey all, could somebody hit up nogidrew86 about his beer? i lost his # and i'd like to get it to him before i go out for the night. if by chance he's not able to meet up, the bottles are up for grabs to anyone that can meet up with me at planet hollywood before 10. shoot me a message if interested. if anyone could send me his #, that would be awesome too. i've got a bottle of pappy's dark that needs to be crushed as well...
