We're too lazy for theme nights

So last year it was so hot that we ditched out on Sister Act night. Our cat theme night mostly consisted of silly cat t-shirts, and our third theme night has been our STBE shirts for a few years now, so we decided this year, it's gonna be all about t-shirts. Bring your favorite STBE shirts from years past, and the third night will be our Time to Shine shirts. Boom. Roasted.

I'll eventually get around to updating

We're staying at the Golden Nugget this year, getting a cabana on Friday at the Downtown Grand, and doing our fancy steak dinner at the Binion's steakhouse.

Also, we're milking these next few years for all their worth. Last year was the 18th annual STBE, this year is STBE's 18th birthday. Next year will be the 20th annual STBE, and the following year will be the 20th anniversary. The following year, STBE will turn 21!

Can you believe we've been doing this for so long?

Anyhoo, don't miss out, as these next few years are all going to be milestones in the history of STBE!!!

Oh yeah, since we're all old people now, theme nights are basically t-shirts. Nuns are moving to Reno.

STBE swag preview

We've ordered the shirts. I was able to get such a good deal that I went ahead and ordered extras for people who need a little bit more time to make a decision on the trip.

I also ordered these beauties to go along with the shirts.

STBE 2018 planning is underway!!!

I've updated the home page, hotels page, and FAQ page. Theme nights this year will be Sister Act and Crazy Cat People. We've decided that Sundays are brunch and STBE t-shirts from now on. We're getting older, what can we say?

We'll be staying at Downtown Grand, and as always, bonus night the Thursday before it starts. Dates are at

If you didn't get an evite, email me. You know where to find me. This year, we took into account past attendance and other assorted measurements of interest in the trip, so the guest list is slightly smaller. We're open to expanding, so don't be offended if you weren't on the original list.

How is this my first post about STBE 2017?

I'm a lot busier now that I've got more responsibilities at work, I guess!

Anyhoo, I've finally updated the website with theme nights for this year's trip. And in case you don't want to go there, here they are:

Friday: Snowbirds
Saturday: Sister Act
Sunday: T-shirts at champagne brunch

Meet the Sands

I finally convinced Ryan to walk into this place last year, and we had a blast at the $5 blackjack tables. Well, until Ryan said, "Oooooooooooooooooh! Piña coladas!!!

Anyhoo, looks like they have some interesting packages, including a bucket of beer and food credits.
