LATEST UPDATES AS WE COUNTDOWN TO A BUSY OCTOBER!

Well, THE LOVEDART LOUNGE has been a busy place the last week or so. As we prepare for our whirlwind gauntlet tour in October, the shit just never stops spinning here in the Hinch. Last Friday the lounge suffered significant damage due to the freak hail storm on the last day of summer. We have insurance agents on site and hope to get a the details worked out so that renovations can begin when we return in November.

The finishing touches are being put on THE TROPITUX II and it will be shipping direct to Las Vegas on Monday. The amazing team up at Pat and Sues colorful tuxedos in Michigan are again working their magic to make Johnny Lovedart the best dressed dude on the Las Vegas strip. We will try and post some pictures when it arrives.

Dont forget that 1 week from today, Johnny Lovedart will be attempting to set the land speed record for THE NEON GAUNTLET, during a barnstorming run on Las Vegas strip. We are hoping to come in at around 14 hours. 4 hours under the current record.

On Friday Oct 5th, TOMMY ROCKER and PRINCE AMA will tear it up, poolside at LOVEDART WEST in Henderson Nevada for the Walker rehearsal dinner, then on October 6th JOHNNY LOVEDART will be performing best man duties for the Walker nuptials at The Paris hotel and casino.

The following week will find us putting the finishing touches on plans for this years big event, THE CELEBRITY NEON GAUNTLET. Then we return back to The Hinch for a quick 4 days of work before we jet back to sin city for LAST MAN STANDING, THE CELEBRITY NEON GAUNTLET and then MEETING OF THE MINDS down in Key West.

October is gonna be busy, so stay tuned right here on THE LOVEDART LOUNGE web page for all the latest updates and news.

GAUNTLET SEASON, OPENING DAY, QUICKLY APPROACHING!

Thats right, its gauntlet season, and we kick things off on Oct. 4th, with a solo run to re-certify the course for this years CELEBRITY NEON GAUNTLET VIII and an attempt to break the NEON GAUNTLET land speed record currently sitting at 18 hours straight up.

The journey kicks of Thursday morning around 6, and the goal is to wrap things up in under 14 hours, finishing at the site of my cousins wedding countdown get-together. (location TBA). Shaving 4 hours off the record time is a lofty goal, but should be attainable with a few lucky breaks here and there. This years gauntlet will start and stop at the same location due to the closing of O’Shea’s Casino. O’Shea’s will return next year inside of the new Linq center which will also include an entire renovation of the Imperial Palace and the construction of an ENORMOUS Ferris wheel in the middle of the Las Vegas strip. We will keep you posted on those upgrades as they happen.

Back at the lounge, recovery from last Fridays hail damage continues as we close things up on the shattered remains of the Tiki Deck. Insurance adjusters are working throughout the area to get things rolling as quickly as possible and THE LOVEDART LOUNGE should be ready to ring in the spring social season with a fresh new look. Stay tuned as details develop.

Stay tuned as we bring you the opening of gauntlet season, Last Man Standing, and The Celebrity Neon Gauntlet on Oct. 22. As the temperature drops, things start heating up at THE LOVEDART LOUNGE!

MOTHER NATURE SLAMS THE DOOR IN SUMMERS FACE.

Mother nature bitch slapped summer to the curb last Friday. It was the last day of summer. The sun was shining, a gentle breeze blew out of the west and it looked like summer was going to lollygag into fall. Well that all came to an abrupt halt, right before sundown. The wind picked up to about 60mph, the sky grew dark and menacing, and the heavens opened up and projectile vomited 2 inches of marble sized hail all over the Bal Hinch. The Lovedart Lounge was not spared natures fury. The Tiki Deck was riddled with hail, shredding the canopy to ribbons. The side of the lounge looked like someone dumped wet leaves in front of an 8 foot, high powered fan, and the roof was pummeled into submission. Summer came to a close shortly after.

Insurance agents are currently on the scene and The Lovedart Lounge and The Tiki Deck will be restored to its former beauty for the beginning of the spring social season. In the meantime, the lounge prepares for our fall and winter schedule. Stay tuned for updates on the renovations as they progress.

In the meantime, point your browser right here for all the latest on LAST MAN STANDING and THE NEON GAUNTLET VIII.  We will bring you all the latest updates and news as we continue to build our new home here at THELOVEDARTLOUNGE.COM.
