Star Trek?

Did anyone here know that the Hilton Hotel and Casino here in Las Vegas was Star Trek themed?

Well, it is. I had no idea. I'm walking through this place last night trying to find the cafe and I'm walking over floors that are blinking and lighting up, I keep hearing the captain talking over the loudspeaker, I'm expecting this spaceship to take off at any moment.

ha ha

Okay, the Hilton is LAME and I'm so glad I never wasted my time there before. So, my cousin, Debbie and her husband Vic were going to see Barry Mannilow last night. I had to suppress the urge to call her a "Fannilow" but all I kept thinking about is that episode of Will and Grace when Will is waiting in line for the Barry Mannilow tickets. So funny!

I look very tired here - well, I just got off work so whatever...

Here's the bad news, she's one month younger than me, does that mean I'm old enough to like Barry Mannilow too? Well, anyway, we had a quick dinner and they headed off to the show and now I can say that I've been to the Hilton.

So, tonight I'm going to play in the Grinder tournament at Planet Hollywood with Mookie and the gang!!!

I've been wanting to play in the new poker room over there and who DOESN'T want to play in a tournament with the Grinder? Ahhhhh - I love him. I am patiently waiting for him to get divorced. Tonight is step one in my plan - meet him. Step Two is make him fall in love with me and then step three is make him get divorced.

Piece of cake right?

I had NO idea the Hilton was Star Trek themed! I don't even know if I've ever been there.
There are so many things about Vegas that are lost to drunken memories...

step 1.5: win the tournament, have him present you the trophy and when he does, lay a big wet one on him?

I remember reading about a Star Trek experience there but didn't know the Hilton was Star Trek themed. That would actually be pretty cool.

Good luck in the tournament.

My mind refuses to believe that someone nicknamed "The Grinder" is not a stripper...

Good luck in trying to court that stripper. LOL!

Good luck in the tourny too!

I actually have been to Star Trek Resturant at the Hilton where those characters walk around and call you things like "Strange Human". My ex-bf's sister is a trekie and we went for her.

I also have seen the Barry Manilow show. We did that for me!

The Grinder's brother has the same odd problem as Patrick Swayze's brother. They just didn't get the good looks from their parents.

I was aware of the Star Trek theme at the Hilton and want to go, but my wife executed her patented eye roll/deep sigh combination every time I mentioned it. I got the same reaction when I mentioned that the Nude Bullriding World Championship was in town.

Apparently her great taste applies only to men.

You look gorgeous as always but HE, that guy in green, HE is smoking woozer, puff puff puff.

I love your American guys in baseball caps. They do it so well. Aussie guys just look desperate to be cool.

I've seen the Star trek stuff there. I'm not a Trekkie, so I wasn't bowled over, but I was with a friend who was, and he loved it. I've had to stomach much worse, so all in all, it wasn't bad!

Does this mean you won't be interested in going on the Star Trek rides at the Hilton with me (and anyone else who wants to) when I come out for the Winter Classic? They are both pretty cool, even if you aren't a total Trekker.
