Rude Jude in Las Vegas
For those that don't know, Rude Jude is the co-host of Sirius Satellite Radio's Shade45's afternoon drive-time "The All-Out Show" (M-F 4-8PM EST). Last week, Jude came out to the MAGIC Convention in Las Vegas to get some interviews for the show. Along the way, Jude met the above roller-skater-lady who apparently is a singer. Also while in Vegas, Jude and I took a trip to the Hooters Hotel & Casino, and went to... Hooters while we were there. Yes, there is a Hooters restaurant inside the Hooters Casino. Jude told everyone it was his birthday, and he danced.
We took Jude to go see George Carlin at the Orleans Casino, because, like Jude, Carlin is very angry and self-destructive. There was a man standing in line at the casino that kind-of looked like George, so I prompted Jude to ask for a picture. Jude did, and him and the older gentleman exchanged words. Because, as the man said, "who would want to take a f$%#&in' picture with YOU?"
Jude also decided that he was going to bring his backgammon board with him. Everywhere.
So he wound up at the Spearmint Rhino with his calf-skin covered portable travel backgammon case at 2 in the morning. I can't wait until our next trip to Vegas with Jude.
