Stripped

This dance if from a Russian ... with love

January 25th, 2011

When people guess my heritage, it's usual somewhere in Eastern Europe. So why fight it?

  • I worked on Monday for many reasons, mostly because of a bad weekend of soul-searching.

  • I fidgeted with my bottoms. I re-tied my top. I tried to impress during this rare Las Vegas audition.

  • It would have been good to turn to B, but he hates to be reminded that my work is dirty and illegal. Disappointment all around.

  • Black Bird is a picky eater and is not drinking, but her mom -- she eats everything.

  • The reservation doesn't allow non-natives, but one of us was a card-carrying American Indian with health-care needs.

  • Before the pregnancy, we used to be great drinking buddies. Maybe it was because of her heritage?

  • A breakup with B is necessary. Why stay with someone who doesn't appreciate passion and loyalty?

  • "Space" gave way to "camping trip" after an unexpected tryst with "B" in a motel room.

  • My head spinning, I probed further for explanation as to what I'd stumbled on. The outcome was not as planned.

  • In Alaska, there is no 3-for-$100 lap dance area. There are only $20. And, we go nude. Totally.

  • I had to explain jokes to a curious kid, and eventually dozed off. It's just as well.

  • Half of the long-running and market-topping KXMB 94.1 “The Mix” morning radio team has announced a departure. Mark DiCiero, who teamed with Mercedes Martinez for 18 years ...

  • Ryan North has been thinking about King Midas for a while.

  • Plus new material from Love Vendetta and a SquidHat Records showcase

  • Time to start a few new traditions that don't involve Bing Crosby or Andy Williams.

  • Las Vegas’ nerd-out capital, the Sci Fi Center, has done it again.

  • Hakkasan Group initiated a major shakeup of the Strip’s nightlife business today with plans to acquire another prominent nightlife company, The Light Group, for $36 million. Morgans Hotel Group ...

  • All I wanted for Christmas were some new Imagine Dragons tracks, which didn’t seem unreasonable.

  • Extreme Thing attracted the high school and early-20s sets, who have taken to Facebook demanding answers.

  • Also: Bass Drum of Death at Beauty Bar, Zola Jesus and The Growlers at Bunkhouse.

  • Everyone knows about 2014's Zeppelin, Dylan and Springsteen sets. Here are three others you might have missed.

  • Watch the Scarecrow dance down the yellow-brick road to a live rendition of "Brain Damage" this week.

  • Vegas Uncork’d by Bon Appetit returns to the Strip from April 23-26. Star chefs including Michael Mina, Masa Takayama, Jean-Georges Vongerichten and Guy Savoy will join Gordon Ramsay. Julian Serrano also will debut his restaurant Lago at Bellagio.

  • "I realized what I was missing. I was meant to be on a billboard!"

  • Star chefs Emeril Lagasse and Daniel Boulud created the ultimate in fabulous food with five courses before “Cake Boss” star Buddy Valastro wheeled in one of the largest 10-story cakes ever made for the Strip.

  • AVN wants to know: Who has the best T and A in the porn industry this year? Plus, a reality TV-turned-adult-film starlet sets her sights on AEE.

  • And a mashup of a traditional nativity play and L. Ron Hubbard.

  • In pre-Internet days, this used to only happen every so often, but social media has turned the spoiler into a virus one can catch any time.
