The Vegas Rundown.

Collateral damage.

Since I’ve been here at the Riviera, there have been at least four fights, with one KO in the Action Pit and one shooting at the Cue Club. In other news of the world, I managed to cut my thumb open with a frickin’ steak knife and spill a nice […]

I’ll post whatever lame pics I […]
