Pete Rose

Sunday, April 20th, 2008

We trekked down to Ceasar’s Palace today. The wind was blowing wild on the streets, and even with my ballistic glasses, I still got some sand in the eyes. We dropped into the casino for a few hands of blackjack. When we tried to see the animated statues, we found no joy – they’re under construction. On the way out, we dropped into Field of Dreams. Lo and behold, who do we see there? Pete Rose.

Pinball Hall of Fame

Friday, April 18th, 2008

Mitch and I took a cab out to the Pinball Hall of Fame today. Steve took a second out of his busy schedule to join us.

This place is cool. They have a few dozen machines, new and old. You can even play some old-school arcade games. They had Tetris, Donkey Kong, Mario Bros… They even had the original (as in the first one ever made) Space Invaders machine!

Steve, Mitch and I spent far too much money playing Gauntlet. We totally sucked at it, but had a great time.
