To List, or Not To List

If you've read my blog for more than a week, you should know about THE List. Well now I have a dilemma. This is where the sensible side of me is arguing with the adventurous side that actually made THE List in the first place.

2. Bet $100 on Black at a Roulette table in Vegas

A week from tomorrow, I head out to Vegas for a week for a work conference (subject for another post: Getting paid to hang out in Vegas for a week - only slightly less awesome than Getting paid to hang out in Stockholm for a week). I don't know when I'm going to go back to Vegas. I'm pretty sure I will at some time in my life, but at the same time, with so many other things on THE List I'm sure it won't be a place that I rush back to. So now the question:

Do I take this opportunity to actually step out and do something that is not so easy on my list, or do I let my sensible side win out and not bet $100 on Black?

Its up to you. Leave your comment here and the majority vote will win. My fate is in your hands. :)

I vote spend the $100. It is a big chunk of money, but you can cross one more thing off your list.

You are young, single, upwardly mobile...go for it! Just eat mac and cheese for a month if you lose.

Do it. It's on the list, and you never know when you will be back in Vegas or what your circumstances will be. My vote is a big fat DO IT! And while your at it, go ahead and win. :)

When you are 74 years old, what will you have wished you did?

One thing is guaranteed...if you do and win, you will be going back to Vegas sooner than you think!

Sorry, but this is one poll where I wouldn't dare tell you what I think you should do.

I say go for it. Its on the list, so its obviously something you really think would be cool to do! Plus, if you lose, eeeh, its only 100 bucks...but if you win...!! :) The key is to STOP after that one roll. Win or lose. Have a great time either way!

I vote you do it. Do it up right. And don't do it at some ghetto casino. If word gets back to me that you threw down $100 at Circus Circus... heads're gonna roll. Throw down a hundred clams at the Bellagio or the Wynn or Caesar's. That way whenever you check it off your list, it comes accompanied with, "And I did it at the Bellagio" or another of the ones I just listed. Ya know?

Oh, and while you're in Vegas... go to a place off the Strip called "The Artisan" and have the Chocolate Martini. It will blow your mind. And remember this: tell them that your friend worked in Vegas and always demands the "creamy" Chocolate Martini. It's better, trust me.

And by the way, let me just say that by coming to New York and visiting me and Holly, you could TOTALLY check off about half your list in one fell swoop. I'm just sayin'.....
