2008 Mazda CX-9: It Never Happened

May 05, 2008

I got the keys to our Mazda for the weekend. Yes, a bachelor party weekend in Vegas. I was to rush out there to pick up my buddies at the airport. They were flying in from Seattle, New York and Denver.

Well, one thing leads to another and I wasn't able to get out of LA easily. I got slammed in traffic all the way to the bright lights of the Strip and my friends had to share a van to the hotel.

What happened past my arrival to the bar where they were all waiting for me never happened. Especially if any of our girlfriends, fiance's or wives ever ask.

But I can tell you there are a few hard and fast rules about Vegas: Everyone is on the take, never ask a cabbie or doorman for advice because the get kickbacks. Know when to hold them. Know when to run. Lastly always, ALWAYS, "forget" to bring a camera to the bachelor party because it never happened. You don't want that kind of evidence to come back and haunt you. It could be sofa city for the next month, buddy.
