WOW! Another great trip. I'm getting ready to head to the airport for that long, crappy flight home. Once again, the California Ohana treated me like a king. I can't thank you all enough for your hospitality. I'll post more by weeks end, hopefully. I can't wait to come back. Thank you all so much!
Mahalo,
Rick

Finally, some pics. First stop, Frankie's:







More exciting details to follow. I got a new laptop for my birthday, January 9. Damn! I missed being born on Elvis' birthday by 1:17! Anyway, the new computer allows me to download pics from my new camera, so look out, I've been hoarding pics!

Per JOHN-O's recommendation, we had dinner at The Golden Steer. Great Rat-Pack atmosphere, killer steaks & a smokon'-hot hostess. A bit pricey, but worth it. Taco-Bell, In-n-Out & the buffet at The Orleans were getting old. I'll definitely go back.


Wednesday morning, we tried to find the Aku Aku moai in Sunset Park, but they were digging the place up & we couldn't seem to locate it. Besides, I had to get to the airport for my flight to L.A. Rumpus Room, here I come!

Aaaah, the Golden Steer! One of the last classic time warp places in Las Vegas! Here are some photos I took for Pete Moruzzi's next book project:

That wasn't my hostess! I should have taken some interior shots, but the place was pretty busy & I didn't want to look too creepy!
