Party, Party, Party (Unfortunately, Not for Me…)


Former Virginia Governor Mark Warner had a big bash at the Stratosphere Casino yesterday evening.  Reader 01Tex sent along some photos from the party, and I thought everyone might like a peek at what went on last night as well.

Unfortunately, I didn’t make it to this one, because I was at another event — but I hear it was quite the bash, with sushi and some entertainment impersonators and Mark Warner hanging out and chatting with the YearlyKos folks who attended.

There have been a few of these events since we’ve been here.  Gov. Bill Richardson of New Mexico had a breakfast the other day.  Wesley Clark had a bash at the Hard Rock Casino.  (Who have I missed?  I know there was another — some FDL reader whose brain is still functioning here tell me who I’m missing?)  Barbara Boxer spoke yesterday and Harry Reid is here today.  As is Arianna — and yes, she really is that gorgeous in real life.


This is reader WorldWideEllen.


Here is reader WorldWideEllen on the "aptly-named "Insanity" that juts off the side of the Stratosphere tower and whirls around until passengers in open chairs hang horizontally and spin a thousand feet above the Vegas streets.
Yikes!"  Yeah, what 01Tex said — YIKES!


Here are some Blues Brothers impersonators at the Warner party.  And some YearlyKossacks having a fabu time. 

(Personally, I could use a nap…I’m just saying.  Miss you guys!)
