Welcome Blackjacker1979!!

Patience, indeed, is more than a virtue, it is a song by Guns N Roses. Sometimes it takes a while to get what you want... laid, rich, a botched umpire call overturned, the Fontainebleau built, a restaurant named after you at Encore.

The first time I met Blackjacker1979 in person - huddled over dinner at Bellagio's Fix shared with Admiral and Mrs. Hunter H. Hillegas and the ever lovely VegasGalB - one thing was instantly apparent to me... I am a dope.

Through the course of the evening - which whittled down to the trio of myself, the Admiral and Blackjacker1979 wandering around a vacant ARIA the night before grand opening - two more things became incredibly apparent to me... a) I'm still a dope b) but at least I'm surrounded by two of the most astute casino design decipherers on the planet.

At one point during the walkthrough, Hunter turned to me in aside and said "this guy is awesome, we should have him on the podcast!" My thoughts exactly.


So let's cut to the chase... after many months of playing footsie, we've finally convinced Blackjacker1979 to join the VT team. You've already read his review of ARIA's Corner Suites and shared the horror of a recent visit to Palazzo under his insightful and watchful eye. You've also drunk up tons of other postings and features that contain some of the tastiest info nuggets that he is specifically responsible for. Now, thanks to the magic that is Color TV, I'm unbelievably psyched to announce the addition of Blackjacker1979 as a regular contributor to VT.

Welcome to VegasTripping Blackjacker1979!

Good news. I look forward to seeing his posts. I'm even taking his advice of a few months ago and staying at the M for a few nights in July.
