Here's a bit of a diversion. I wrote this article about 3 years ago after many a trip to Vegas where i marveled at the once again changing complexion of the city. This article is about some of the people i met in Vegas, many of which are still good friends of mine. These few people basically invented what is the current state of the Vegas party scene: the battle between pool parties and nightclubs. Fast forward a few years and they are still making waves. Mike Myers - after Body English closed on NYE 2009, he, Cory and a few others opened Vanity which is the current au fait club in Vegas. Adam Nixon - after a stint at Red Rocks, he (and some of the Las Vegas Hard Rock crew) ended up taking over the Hard Rock in San Diego. Slowly but surely they are pulling out all the same tricks and making San Diego a venerable destination for the day and night party traveller. DJ Vice (Eric) - with his face plastered all over billboards in Vegas, he's become one of the most in-demand club DJs across the United States and beyond. Rehab - now a legend in its own time, Rehab is on to its 6th season with a massively expanded pool and lineup. About 6 other pools have opened to compete with the simple idea that Chad Pallas started as a way to avoid having to drive out to Lake Mead on the weekend. Club Hosting - probably the biggest change since the story was written is that Casinos now actually cater to the people the article talks about. They can get rooms, they get aggressively courted by different hotels, and generally get the run of the place whether they gamble a dime or not. Read on to hear the whole story about how it started..(image)
