Queen + Adam Lambert in Las Vegas

So the original reason we went to Las Vegas this past weekend was to catch one of my favorite bands in action at the pretty-darned-new T-Mobile Arena. Queen.

A Weekend in Vegas…

We love to travel at my house. We do. We go places, see things… not necessarily the same things or places as other people, but hey, to each their own, right?

Here is some video of Michael Rooker during his "Michael Rooker vs the Audience" panel at this past weekend's Wizard Con Las Vegas. Oh, my God, he was fantastic!
