The Clampetts Take Vegas

Exciting developments here at the Sneed blog. The lovely Mrs. Sneed and Yours Truly, are jetting off to beautiful Las Vegas, Nevada this morning, for a two-night and three-day stay at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino. The Planet Hollywood is the former Aladdin Hotel on the Las Vegas Strip and is part of the Sheraton brand. It was selected for us by Priceline since I refuse to pay full price. I'm hoping that it's improved over its Aladdin days. The Aladdin was kind of a creepy place. When it was built, it had huge cost overruns, was a total money pit for the owners and was in steady decline from day one. According to the Planet Hollywood website, "Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino features accommodations fit for Hollywood Royalty". I'm dubious. We have been to Las Vegas about a million (slight exaggeration) times and all the hotels on the strip are pretty much the same, at least for us non-royals. But then, no one goes to Las Vegas to experience superior room accommodations. The object is to eat and drink too much, gamble too much and stay up way too late. Ours are no different, except for the drinking part. By this evening we will be firmly established as the two in the phrase, "Get a load of those two." If all goes according to plan, we will be seeing the new Bette Middler show tonight. Middler has replaced Celine Dione as the feature performer at Caesar's Palace. Celine finally took her entourage back to the planet Zork or wherever she actually comes from. Don't fall for the story that she's from Canada, the woman's a space alien. So there you have it. No post tomorrow and maybe not on Tuesday. In my absence feel free to search my blog with the keywords Las Vegas and enjoy some of the many fine posts I've written about Las Vegas. Things in this blog represented to be fact, may or may not actually be true. The writer is frequently wrong, sometimes just full of it, but always judgmental and cranky
