Well, another year passes, and 2009 got kick started, big Vegas loan missouri style. There were trucks flipping and bikes flying and fireworks exploding. You could hardly tell we were in the middle of one of the worst recessions in history. But we Americans love living in a state of denial, and if there’s one place you can live in denial, its Las Vegas. You might be losing your job tomorrow, but tonight, Charlie Sheen best stay the fuck out of your way cause your gonna party like a rock star. Meanwhile, back in the Bal Hinch, it was time to look back over the past year and thank everyone who had put together our best year to date. There were a lot of accolades to go around, so we kicked off the new year with the first (and as far as I can tell, the only) Golden Pole awards. Prestige comes in strange forms sometimes. Here we go………….

LIVIN LA VIDA LOVEDART………..LIVE FROM LAS VEGAS…….NEW YEARS DAY

HAPPY NEW YEARS LOUNGERS
