The feeling you have when leaving Las Vegas when you realized you forgot your dignity and self-respect.
Is there a term for when this occurs before leaving?
· Vegas Buzzed
1. Really drunk by the standards of anywhere else in the known universe, but since you are in Vegas you say you are just buzzed.
2. When you are so drunk that you don't know where you are, but you assume it must be Vegas because you are just that messed up.
· Vegas Dance Off
Taken from the main definition of dance off, but twisted for Vegas. When two or more people start dancing randomly in Las Vegas for no prize.
There's some additional criteria on this one, but we're hoping it explains most of the folks throwing down solo on Fremont.
The excitement and anticipation one has before their first trip to Las Vegas.
And, their second. And, third. And...
· Vegas Lent
A term for the period of 40 days prior to a trip to Las Vegas, typically used to prepare by drinking, practicing your gambling strategy and creating Excel spreadsheets of what you want to do and wear (especially which shoes to take).
Paige C. is in the midst of Vegas Lent. Also that period during which Vegasipation sets in.
The sheer joy that is the result of partaking in all the debauchery that is Las Vegas.
Not to be confused with the same entry, but lowercase "vegasm" which involves cucumbers or carrots.
· Vegas Voice
The raspy voice one has after returning from a bender in Vegas. Generally accompanied by no ailments other than a pounding hangover. Lasts 2-3 days after returning to the real world. Vegas Voice is often attributed to throwing back ungodly amounts of booze, smoking cigarettes and cigars, and making other ill-advised decisions.
· Vegas Lip
The condition by which your upper lip -- having been subjected to the arid, air-conditioned, cigarette-infused air of Las Vegas combined with excessive consumption of alcohol and/or other substances -- dehydrates to the consistency of a flaky, shriveled raisin.
Not uncommon to be seen with Vegas Voice.
· Vegas Vortex
When you party so hard in Vegas you want to change your flight in order to leave early as a result of the Vegas vortex.
A good spot for us to close out of Urban Dictionary.
Familiar with some of these more than others? Have a favorite Vegasism you want to highlight? (And, hey! We need to enter that!) Peruse some of the others we left out here, but were
horrified amused by over at the original UD.
