Happy for all of us, and looking forward to seeing so many of you again AND getting to know so many new faces!!!
Leonard brought us all together, so it's only right we're there to let him know what he's meant to us!!
Diana

Any special meet ups or after glow get togethers planned?

A special thank you to jarkko for all of your hard work and contributions to this forum.

First I want to say I have never won a contest before and this one has been the most interesting.
I am happy to say I guessed the correct answer. What a thrill!
It was a wild guess on my part so many months ago and one that I never thought would actually happen. LV is not my 'thing' but I have to say the concerts and meetups there last year showed me another side and are full of incredible memories and the sound and venue were magnificent to say the least. So I am happy to say I will be there for both nights!
Look forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones!
Mutti/Leslie ;-)

PS Last year Maarten, Diana and myself had a dinner organized the night before the concert. This year maybe someone else will carry that torch or we can just pick a restaurant and time and all meet there informally and table hop. One suggestion I have is to pick a different bar than the Seahorse this year.
(just my personal opinion but hey I'll go wherever everyone else meets!)
See you all in December...

With all of the gambling imagery that Leonard has used, from Stranger Song:

It's true that all the men you knew were dealers
who said they were through with dealing
Every time you gave them shelter

And then sweeping up the jokers that he left behind
you find he did not leave you very much
not even laughter
Like any dealer he was watching for the card
that is so high and wild
he'll never need to deal another

And from Ten New Songs A Thousand Kisses Deep

The ponies run, the girls are young,
The odds are there to beat.
You win a while, and then it’s done –
Your little winning streak.

And one of my favorites: A Life of Errands:

A LIFE OF ERRANDS


If You Are Lucky
You Will Grow Old
And Live
A Life Of Errands.
You Will Discern
What People Need
And Provide It
Before They Ask.
You Will Drive Your Car
Here And There
Delivering And Fetching
And Neither The Traffic
Nor The Weather
Will Bother You
In The Least.
You Will Whip Down The 405
To San Diego
To Pick Up An Acorn
For Someone's Proverb
And So On And So Forth.
In Spite Of The Ache
In Your Heart
About The Girl You
Never Found
And The Fact That
After Years Of
Spiritual Rigor You Did Not Manage
To Enlighten Yourself
A Certain Cheerfulness
Will Begin To
Arise Out Of Your Crushed
Hopes And Intentions.
How Thirstily
You Embrace Your Next Commission:
To Sift Through The Sunglasses
At A Lost And Found
In Las Vegas
Just A Few Hours
Across The Desert.
Your Hair Is White
You Have Breasts
And A Gut
Over Your Belt
You Are No Longer A Boy,
Or Even A Man
But A Sense Of Gratitude
Enlivens Every Move You Make.
Yes, Sir, These Are The
Very Gold-Rimmed Pair
She Left In The Plastic Tray
Beside The Dollar Slot Machines.
No, Sir, I Am Not Lying.

Joe,
Las Vegas = your choices = so apropos. Thank you for introducing me to 'A Life of Errands' - so easy to relate to. I can see why it is a favorite of yours.

Such a phenomenal group of people going to Vegas! How can it be anything but the best of times for us all. Can't wait to see all the members I have already met and am so looking forward to meeting all of you I have gotten to 'know' through the forum.

Leslie - Pure, I think, is a high energy (probably loud) nightclub. The only seating is when you get bottle service (equate that with very expensive). I don't know about you, but I don't relish the idea of standing all night. Does the Seahorse Lounge sound more attractive to you now?

Kindest regards,
Mary

Mary, anywhere with you sounds good! I think Pure is not an option either but maybe we can find something different this time.
Just a suggestion..just to make it a new experience...

"Who knows"? (as a fine Belgium man told me in Sligo)..."everybody knows"...chuckle ;-)
Looking forward to some new adventures...
