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.

Halfway STBE 2017 dates are set!

Can you believe it's our fifth annual Halfway STBE already? It is! Jessie, Ryan, and I chose the dates at Jose Cuervo's Tequilaria (as is tradition) at the conclusion of STBE 16, and we decided on February 10-12, 2017.

I know we'll at least be flying back, and I sure hope we take the train in on Friday again, as it's always a good time. More details to come.

STBE Staple closing

Sorry, folks, no more fried twinkies and endless slot-side drinks. Mermaids closed, along with La Bayou and Glitter Gulch (how did we never put together that Glitter Gulch was associated with those fine establishments? It makes sense, doesn't it?).

Theme nights!

We decided on STBE 2016 theme nights a while ago. I haven't updated the website, but I can tell you that Sister Act night was such a hit last year that we're doing it again and will rotate annualy with Red Hat Ladies. We were also inspired by a deep v-neck pantsuit worn at Jessie's wedding that we'll be doing pantsuits as a theme night. For the third night, we'll just wear our annual STBE t-shirts. This year's shirt will likely feature a fictional be-mulleted 80's stand-up comic we've named Loretta Stone (she'll also teach you another language at a discount). A couple years ago, we were too tired by Sunday to even properly pull off mumus. If we can't pull off mumus, it's a problem. Last year, we wore Hawaiian shirts with sweet patches and it was pretty awesome.

STBE 16 dates and location are set!!!

STBE 2016 (the 15th anniversary) is September 9-12. Since Main Street Station was sold out, we're returning to the Golden Nugget!

One thing we're giving up is the ability to roll up to the pool with a cooler full of beer, but apparently the Main Street hotel (actually at the California) sat on the surface of the sun. I guess we can deal with annoying children and having to sneak beers in under a caftan in order to hang out at a classy pool. And maybe Ryan can win enough money in a poker tournament to get us a cabana again!
