We arrived checked in and though, lets go to see where the tv show Pawn Stars is filmed. I also was told they might have some Saloon nudes for the saloon. We took a cab, Bamm. $20.00! No big, get out of the cab, and there it is our first line, A line to go into a pawn shop? Yep! Well after 20 Min’s in line they said they were shutting the door for 30 mins to do some filming and we would have to wait, this did not work so we were off back to the strip.
Upon arrival back to the strip we hit up the Harrah’s Carnival Court Bar where most of the Sacramento pilgrimage meet up on day one of the Nightclub and Bar Show. We ran into people from the new Republic Bar, Dive Bar, Park, Mix, De Vere’s Irish Pub and more. We had a few drinks then headed to get ready for the first nights party featuring Lil John.

We had called in advance to make sure there was no problem and we thought there would not be. So change in plans. One of our staff was able to get us into Marquee night club in the Cosmopolitan Hotel. Awesome, we were inline and in withing 20 minutes. Marquee was rocking. Besides being told to not block the aisles every 5 min’s it was a blast. Kudos’ to our staff member Leah for saving the night. Next thing you know it was late and we were off to bed.

Hit the convention, and it was a bit smaller then in years past but still packed with booths full of the latest products. Awesome, we purchased many new items for the saloon. Next stop dinner at the Hofbrauhaus. After few spankings and some great food and beer, we were off to our prearranged party to see Bruno Mars at the new Oak 1 Night Club. We had set this party up way in advance, and were told to arrive early. After being told to wait in the [title color=”blue-vibrant” align=”scmgccenter” font=”arial” style=”normal” size=”scmgc-1em”]”VIP line”[/title] we waited, after getting in and out of line trying to make sure we were in the right line, we quickly realized this was the worst run event and club we have ever been invited too. The lines were not moving, the staff did not have a clue, Horrible. 1 and a 1/2 hours in line for nothing. Red-Bull fell way short on this event.
We jumped out of line, took to the Strip and it was a great night! That’s where what happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas comes in, Well except for the video below.
March 2013 Nightclub and Bar Convention, We are ready for you! and we can’t wait.
