I feel like I’m waking up from a dream today. I have not given a DAMN about what’s going on in Tahoe the past 6 weeks. The skiing has been what’s going on, period. Right now we are finally getting a break from the La La Land La Nina insanity and I gotta admit, it feels good. So this is definitely the weekend to get out there and damage a few brain cells and feel good about it.
Personally, I’m gonna get weird and go see Vinyl for free tonite. I’ve seen Vinyl many times in San Francisco and their style of Latin Funk gets females crazy on the dance floor.
Friday, Jan 7 – Vinyl, Latin Funk Band at Crystal Bay Club. Free. 10pm. Crystal Bay Crown Room. Crystalbaycasino.com
