We told you about our first time... visiting Vegas, that is. And, some of you have told us about yours. Now it's time for one of VegasChatter's newest writers, who pens stories under Wake and Wander, to tell us about his.
My first visit to Vegas suffered the metaphorical equivalent of a flight delay. I found myself waiting in the lobby of The Mirage for 45 minutes, suitcase at my side, until my friend "found his phone" and returned my call. When I finally got the room number and met him upstairs, he could barely stand up. The room reeked of rum and Coke, cologne, and the steam of a hot iron. Clothes were all over, suitcases in every corner. I saw that the space under the desk was vacant so I slid in my suitcase. I turned to the dresser and saw the bottles of booze. This wasn’t just any hotel room – this was a Vegas hotel room, for sure.

Is this NYC or LV? Does it matter?
1Oak's Richie Akiva, Scott Sartiano and Ronnie Madra are close to signing a deal to take over the Light Group's 16,000-square-foot JET nightclub at the Mirage and bring their Chelsea hot spot to Vegas. Sources say the night-life impresarios plan to open 1Oak Vegas by New Year's Eve. Regulars at 1Oak include Rihanna, Katy Perry, Fergie, Alex Rodriguez and Cameron Diaz. A rep for 1Oak said, "While there have been several discussions about 1Oak opening in Las Vegas, it is too premature to comment on any details."
Of course, it's too premature but you know it's happening anyways. That's how these things work! Someone slips something to a gossip column just to test the waters and build excitement. And then in a few short weeks (days?) there comes the official announcement followed by P.Diddy saying he's gonna be hosting New Year's Eve here.

Labor Day weekend isn't the only thing you should look forward to this September in Vegas. Although, we. can't. wait. 'Cause it feels like it's been at least 25 days since the last holiday weekend, ya know? From a first look at the new Plaza to new eats, festivals, and more, here are six reasons why we can't wait for September:
1. Music (and yoga)
There'll be music everywhere in Vegas this September and we're not talking about up in the club. Not one, not two, but three big music festivals are set for September. You may have already heard about the sold out, but not really iHeartRadio fest set for the MGM Grand, but did you know about the music festivals set for Wynn and The Cosmopolitan?

What's the shelf life of a Vegas club? Oh, about six years.
Now, another Light Group outpost on The Strip is reportedly closing its doors to reinvent itself.
Vegas gossip Robin Leach has tweeted that JET nightclub at The Mirage will close this Labor Day for a reno that will having it reopen its doors on New Year's Eve. The same date the club hosted its grand opening back in 2005.

It’s only three days away from New Year’s Eve now and things are hotting up – just yesterday we walked past Jet and saw a lonely man sitting at a desk in the middle of the afternoon trying (unsuccessfully, yesterday afternoon) to shift tickets for B.O.B. (the music one, not that one).
If you haven’t decided where to go yet, know that Ludacris (slightly better than B.O.B, possibly) is going to be hosting at Vanity. Tickets cost $150 and includes an open bar from 9pm-midnight. Then on 1 January, Jason Derulo is taking over.

Bret Michaels loves him some Vegas
Well, we missed Holly Madison’s birthday at Tao last night which means we need to party doubly hard this weekend to make up for it, although the clubs aren’t exactly making it easy for us, what with the celeb count right down to nearly nada.
Tonight, Steve Little (we assume this one of Eastbound and Down is at Jet, and UFC President Dana White hosts a benefit for TJ Lavin and Ty Pinney at Vanity (hospital bills don’t pay themselves, you know). Tomorrow, if your weekend plans involve pulling a cowboy or girl, your top spot will be PBR Rockbar, which will be hosted by a “rodeo clown” called Flint Rasmussen who is, apparently, the finest rodeo clown in bullriding circles. Want something more/less painful (delete according to preference)? Bret Michaels is not only hosting, but also performing, at The Bank. Or for something approximating proper clubbing, it’s Oakenfold night over at Rain.
The savior of Vegas this Labor Day weekend
So we’ve told you all the non-celeb-addled stuff that’s going down this Labor Day. Now it’s onto the celeb addling. Today we’ll focus on the clubs, tomorrow the pool scene.
There’s so much going on that we won’t attempt to cover it all (the Sun’s had a pretty good go at that already) so instead, here be three events to pick from every night.

Will Gaga turn up for VH1? Jet's hoping so
Looks like the two big gigs in town this weekend – Lady Gaga tomorrow and the Midsummer Night’s Dream
orgy party on Saturday - have scared off all the other celebs, because if you’re not busting it to Gaga or hanging with busty babes at the Palms, you could be disappointed.
It’s not so bad tomorrow – Lavo has its two year anniversary event which should be fun – guests include Rob Thomas (performing at Red Rock on Saturday) Stephanie Pratt (who we inexplicably like), Matthew Rhys (yum), Stacy Keiber and Amanda Righetti (ditto) and Dave Annabelle off of Brothers & Sisters.

It might be slightly more crowded for Annalynne and Kellan at Wet Rep
D.I.E. If only we’d gone to Tao last night – it was Jeremih’s birthday party. Jeremih as in Birthday Sex man. Bet that was
Vienna Girardi is hosting two parties called Single and Fabulous (think she’s trying to get her point across?) tomorrow, first at Tao Beach and then at Lavo tomorrow night. Meanwhile, Jennifer Love Hewitt is hosting at Azure pool at the Palazzo, and Annalynne McCord’s throwing a birthday bash at Wet Republic. Kellan Lutz is going to be with her. Praise the lord Wet Rep is adults only, but expect the Twihards to be skanking round MGM Grand all day (and watch out for the creepy Twilight moms at the pool).

You might like to get your loving done tonight because Vegas is bustin’ with sexy ladies tomorrow. Not only is patron saint of mammas Kris Jenner rocking it up at Eve for a Mothers Day party, but Nicole Scherzinger is performing at Pure (hmm, seeing as she’s bezzie mates with Robin Antin, something tells us to expect an impromptu performance chez Matt Goss, as happened last time she was in town).
Today, your lot is Gretchen Rossi from the Real Housewives of Orange County at Jet tonight, and (surprise surprise) Holly Madison hosting a "Beach Blanket Bikini Bash" all day at Tao Beach. Once she wakes up from this, that is.

The calm before the storm at Jet tonight
Tonight’s a busy night in Vegas clubworld, and to mark it, they’re having another Kardashian-Jersey Shore standoff. Robert Kardashian is celebrating his birthday at Jet, and Pauly D is DJing at Ghostbar at the Palms. The RK hotness or the fist-pumping hot mess – the choice is yours.
If you want to stay clear, Soulja Boy is at Eve tonight (overload – he was at Jet only in January), Travis Barker is at Pure (should be interesting) and Jerome Bettis (oh-kay) is having his 38th birthday party at Tao.
