Reckless Kelly and Micky and the Motorcars in LA

Chris and I are big fans of the bands Reckless Kelly and Micky and the Motorcars. It has even been mentioned that we might be groupies. For your consideration, I present to you the charges: We’ve seen Micky and the Motorcars in Vegas one time. We’ve driven to Los Angeles to see both bands together…

Cirque-and-Blog, Zumanity Style!

This past Thursday, Chris and I joined a dozen Las Vegas bloggers for the first ever Cirque-and-Blog event. It was our second time seeing the show, though our first time was more than 3 years ago, so I was very much looking forward to seeing it again. From what I had heard from several people,…
