In just two weeks from today, its time once again for JOHNNY LOVEDARTS MOST EXCELLENT LAS VEGAS ADVENTURE! Thats right, 5 days of balls to the wall debauchery on the neon soaked streets of Las Vegas.
Join us as we take you on a once in a lifetime Las Vegas experience covering 120 hours of your life that you will never ever get back. But the memories……ehhhhh……… PICTURES that you bring back will last a lifetime. This total immersion of the Las Vegas strip starts on Friday night Oct. 18th with LAST MAN STANDING. Its a pre-Jimmy Buffett concert party held by my good friend Tommy Rocker at TOMMY ROCKERS MOJAVE BEACH BAR AND GRILL just off the strip.
Under the beautiful backdrop of the Las Vegas strip, spend a evening of amazing music, great food, frosty cocktails and some of the best people on the planet youve never met. Tommy and the boys headline this event with featured artists through out the evening. Elvis, Johnny Lovedart, an occasional coral reefer, you never know who might show up at LAST MAN STANDING.
In between sets, it will be my pleasure once again to host THE LAS VEGAS PARROTHEAD CLUB, ANNUAL LIVE CHARITY AUCTION! Over the last 3 years we have raised over 10,000 dollars for charity at this great event. Theres lots of great prizes in all price ranges to bid on. Flying sharks, show tickets, houseboat trips on lake Mead, and tons of great parrotphanalia will be auctioned off with all proceeds going to Foster Children of Las Vegas Valley and Children of deployed service members at Nellis Air Force base. A party with a purpose that will leave you feeling better than that 3rd Jagerbomb.
On Saturday Oct. 19 its time once again for the MARGARITAVILLE, JIMMY BUFFETT, POOL PARTY at THE LAS VEGAS FLAMINGO HOTEL. One of the most historic pools in all of Las Vegas plays host to parrotheads from around the world in this warm up party to Jimmys big show later that evening. “Its just like them pool parties you see on that there MTV channel the kids all watch”. Scantily clad women, outrageous outfits, frosty frozen margaritas, shots of tequila, and the whole thing is driven by the Trop Rock beat of TOMMY ROCKER AND CONCHED OUT.
The boys will hit the stage at noon and keep the party going til 7 that night,when its time to head south to the MGM for Jimmys big show.
Once everybody is good and drunk, I will join Tommy and the boys on stage in what has become a sort of a traditional collaboration between THE LOVEDART LOUNGE and TOMMY ROCKERS, as we join together to lead the inebriated masses in one of the best sing alongs of all time……WHY DONT WE GET DRUNK AND SCREW. Its not pretty, but then neither am I after 8 Mai Tai’s.
Next up is actually the most important day of your journey. SUNDAY! Its a day of rest ya know? Now while this might not be exactly what Jesus had in mind, its your chance to wander the Las Vegas strip, hook up with friends for drinks, gamble, have a nice long liquid lunch at one of the many outdoor cocktail establishments. Enjoy a good meal, see a show, what ever it is, this is the day to do it……………..EXCEPT FOR ONE THING!
GET SHITFACED DRUNK
Sure, its Sunday, have a cocktail or two while you hit the tables, but give the liver a rest or your gonna end up like this guy, because you have bigger fish to fry. Get a little exercise, walk the strip, gamble, have a coldie or two, then go back to your hotel, have a good meal and hit the rack by midnight because tomorrow you will be embarking on the most intense single day event of your life………….
THE NEON GAUNTLET
and you only looking at half of it.
Thats right, at high noon, join Johnny Lovedart and fellow gauntletiers and warriors as the prepare to embark on the journey of a lifetime. 30 casinos, 30 cocktails, 30 gambling sessions, 10.5 miles, 18 hours, and ONE day that will live in infamy in the scrapbook of your life. Bring your camera because youll have a hard time remembering it all, trust me on this one. It will literally be the most exhilarating, exhausting, disgusting, amazing day of your life, and youll love every minute of it.
Let me take a minute to introduce to you the graduating class of 2012
These brave men, and ………..
endured a exhausting battle on the neon drenched Las Vegas strip, on a warm, sunny, October day. 6 went in, and only 3 came out. BUT there is no shame in not finishing THE NEON GAUNTLET, only in not trying. It was a great, memorable day etched in time and…..
punctuated earlier this year by the sorrow of the loss of fellow Gauntlet Warrior, Mr. Jim Nierman. Jim (right) called this one of the most amazing days of his life. He knew he wanted to do it the minute I told him about it and he talked about it often. It was a great day with friends, experiencing a once in a lifetime moment that has become the hallmark of THE NEON GAUNTLET.
JIM…….this ones for you my friend, we will toast your life early and often as we make this years journey. Your spirit will guide us as your memory will be celebrated. L’chaim!
