Not content riding the success of Mangria, comedian Adam Carolla has been down in the man cave conjuring up new alcoholic concoctions. Mangria, for those who don't know, is a wine/vodka cocktail available in two flavors (white peach pear and signature orange sangria) that Carolla crafted in a half-drunken stupor and refined with the Patio Wine Company in Napa Valley. Esquire magazine describes the smell of Mangria as like that "sticky red punch that paints the corners of a child’s mouth (at) a birthday party" and its taste as "fking delicious."
Carolla didn't have to stray far from the farm to find his newest cocktail, Brose. It's a blend of the two Mangria flavors, creating a "fruity signature drink."

Britney has been in the entertainment industry since 1992, but most of us didn’t know about her until the release of ...Baby One More Time in 1999. That album has since sold 12 million copies in America and 30 million worldwide. Britney's toured for many years since then, but she’s never been known for singing live. She protests that comment, but we all know what's up. Furthermore, with each tour, her limited dancing skills have diminished. That happens with age.
This writer first saw Britney Spears in 2004 on the Onyx Hotel tour. She lip-sync'd much of the show as she’s always done. Even five years into her career, fans knew that to expect her to sing every note would be ignorant. The Onyx Hotel concert was amazing. Production for the show made up for the lack of singing. My friends and I had a great time. Fast forward 10 years and "Piece of Me" is a lot of the same with more hits.
Admittedly, Gilley's hasn't been that frequent a stop on the VegasChatter tour bus. Not really sure whether to chalk that up to being a lot more rock n' roll and just a little bit country or that the thought of their house wine makes us so ill with bad memories we can't even say it by name. Whatever the root cause, the TI Saloon, Dance Hall, and BBQ just increased the odds of our return in the near future.
"Where should dudes stay in Vegas" is a question that we get quite often here at VegasChatter but, this time around, repeat questioner Jorge V. wants our help in narrowing down a specific hotel for him and his fellow dude friend. He writes:
Some months ago you help me giving me tips in order to book the best affordable suite in vegas.
I will be there again in July 6 - July 9, the New York, New York is around $320 for the 3 nights booking on mlife.com and the Monte Carlo is $286.
Any advice of which of them to choose? I will travel with my best friend, so we'll be two 25-28 yo guys in Vegas.
'That guy' probably suggested everyone stop to check out these Hangover tees.
He's the stuff of laughs, cautionary tales, and depending on your outlook, legends. He's THAT GUY. The guy that does the unexpected, the sometimes inconsiderate, and is always the talk of the pack -- mostly for the wrong reasons.
Being THAT GUY in Vegas takes it to a whole 'nother level, but is seldom worse than when it's for an important event -- like a bachelor party. In this week's VegasChatter Flashback, tips on how not to be that guy when the wolves go on the prowl in Sin City:
How to Not Be 'That Guy' On Your Trip To Vegas In Six Easy Steps
Last week one of our own shared her love story and encouraged readers to submit their own personal proposal and wedding memories from Las Vegas. You didn't disappoint and the first tale in our tour is a proposal - from a dude's perspective. Before you assume the story involves an abundance of booze, a huge win at the craps table, a lucky charm, and an impromptu Will you marry me
like we did, read Kelvin's march to marriage.
Anyone see my ball?
Let's be honest, part of the fun in visiting Las Vegas is doing it up like you might not back home. Stuffing yourself on that all you can eat buffet, bucking up for the unlimited coaster ride pass at NYNY, stocking up on cocoa writing paper. Wait, what? Those aren't the I can't get these at home over-indulgences that first come to your mind?
Apparently, finding the best place to stay for three dudes in Vegas who wanted one room, but no snuggling wasn't a big enough challenge. No, VegasChatter reader Stan W. felt we needed a go big or go home dare - where should 8 dudes in Vegas stay?
Stan's head was whirling from all the choices up and down The Strip from two-bedroom suites here to three bedroom villas there. Would one suffice, two, more? And, the kicker? He and his posse were coming in over the Memorial Day holiday weekend and had a budget they wanted to keep, too.
We have no idea what our best option is, as many of us have never been to Vegas before. We're in our mid 20's and nobody is afraid to sleep on a sofa or double up in a bed (unless someone finds a lady of the night of course)."
VegasChatter loves a good challenge so when VC fan ericrz threw down the gauntlet recently, we picked it up. Little did we know how challenging it would be.
The mission: Vegas. Three dudes. One room. No roll-aways, no doubling up, but pull-outs ok. $200 bucks or less.
With all those caveats, we knew we had a tough assignment. And, ericrz already had one resort off the table - he'd already booked on of the Venetian's Bella Suites that hit all five points. That brought our tally to six as we needed to find alternative rooms of at least the same caliber.
After a few hours of searching (and searching) online, we realized what ericrz already knew - the Bella Suites at Venetian are pretty, you guessed it, sweet for three dudes in Vegas. 700 square feet, two queen beds, one sofa bed. All for, typically, right around two bills a night. We simply couldn't find anything else that matched up.

NASCAR season is quickly approaching with the Daytona 500 just weeks away. Las Vegas has it's very own NASCAR weekend and it gets a little nutty.
NASCAR weekend is March 4-6 for the Kobalt Tools 400.
almost a classic love story. Boy comes to Las Vegas. Boy makes phone call. Boy meets girl. Girl charges $275 and leaves boy holding his bag.
New York City college student Hubert Blackman wanted more than bungee jumping, burgers and a little more Love on his recent trip to Las Vegas. So he called Las Vegas Exclusive Personals to order up a private lap dance in his Stratosphere crib.
After perusing the menu, Blackman ordered the $155 dance and opted for the upsell $120 sex act, which he was told would take up an hour of his time. When the stripper left after only a half hour, Blackman was furious over not receiving the full value of goods ordered. Sounds more like the stripper stayed an extra 28 minutes after the deed was done though, no?

While we like to tell you what to do and not do in Vegas, that doesn't mean we don't mess up every now and then. It's true. VegasChatter makes Vegas Mistakes, just like everyone else! In this telling tale we remind ourselves that December in Vegas tends to slow down a little.
We recently had a kinda fun night out at Caesars Palace. It started with a surprisingly good dinner at Rao's, before moving onto more wine and a cigar at Casa Fuente and then ending with blackjack in the Pussycat Dolls Pit where we saw something that made us do a double-take.
Yes, there were attractive dealers and dancers in the Pussycat Dolls pit and yes, there were lots of good-looking girls teetering on too-high heels as they walked into PURE, but what caused us all to do a double-take were the payouts at the blackjack table.
