Marquee Monday mini-memoir

Industry night at Marquee—you can tell because when the deejay said, “Put your hands in the air if you make money in Vegas,” everybody did just that.

The Jabbawockeez don’t mess around. When they say they’re going on at 1:00 AM, they go on at 1:00 AM. On the nose.

The guy standing in front of me on the dance floor? He messes around: When the Wockeez took the stage, he (purposely) threw his empty cup and his date’s to the ground.

Uncool, sir.

Except for that guy, everybody was lovely, the Jabbawockeez were great, and I’m planning to head back next week.
