July 25: Poolparty Failure

Mayer Hawthorne - "Maybe So, Maybe No" [Reggae Mix] by Some Kind of Awesome

Okay it's a little bit of an exaggeration. The poolparty we ended up at was pretty wack, but Derrick made sure that everyone had a good time. You'll have a great real first experience next time bro.

After a quick nap, I woke up to this. Anyone could get used to it. We walked around our private pool area to check out the scenery.

We were told that hotel guests would be comped at Rehab until 11am. Coincidentally, checkout time was 11am for us since the room had to be fluffed and ready for the next guests. The line for Rehab was also massive so we decided to try Encore Beach. $50 cover for guys?! I'm not about to pay that much just to fry in the sun.

Sooo... we headed over to Palazzo's Azure pool party. As we walked through the casino, we were handed complimentary passes. Odd... As it turns out, Azure has 2 tiny pools and minimal seating area unless you wanted to pay for a cabana or a bed.

We asked where people can sit and put stuff down for free and we were directed to the rotunda. This area was pretty chill! It wasn't right next to the pool, but at least it was shaded. There was a nice warm breeze in the air too. Unfortunately the DJ was garbage and couldn't mix, blend, or even play a full song. WHO CUTS SONGS MID-VERSE?!

Spitting game? Nah, just passing out.

Life of the Party Derrick came out of nowhere (we needed you the night before buddy) and was jumping all over the daybeds, talking his head off, and partying like it was his birthday.

Hahahaha if you only knew.

A typical drive back into the sunset. Good times with the fam! See you again Vegas.

July 24: XS

Yolanda Be Cool Dcup - We No Speak Americano by Gawiga

The night had a lot of positives and a few negatives, but it was never a dull moment! Whenever I go out with my cousins, there's always a story to tell later (and for many reasons, can't make it on the blog). Our plan was to get ready, cab it to XS, get stamped, cab it back to the room, preparty, and then cab it back to XS.

As the girls were getting ready, we took a little time to relax and reflect upon where we were and to get our minds right. Okay it wasn't that serious. I basically took a nap in the most comfortable bed ever.

I think we prepartied too hard considering we were gonna preparty when we got back.

Derrick, Jan, Mark.

Destination: XS.

The massive line that moved relatively quickly. Girls, midgets, samurais; lots of foolishness to kill time while we got our stamps.

Back to the room to party! We should have just invited over everyone to enjoy our villa.

Fam by association, not blood. Love my fam!

Cab back to XS. Sheryl x Tin.

Team USA Basketball was in town for training camp. You know the players come out to play too. D-WAYNE WADE! Nothing but respect for this guy, but you're not taking it next year! Where's Lamar?

Crackin' as usual.

There he is. L-O! Light up that 2011 NBA Champions victory cigar son.

Chips and bitches all day!

Towards the end of the night, the group started to separate (negative). I spent most of the remainder of the night kicking it with some of Sheryl's homies Gene, Mark, and others (whom I forgot the names of...).

Henney x Sprite x Fiji. So necessary.

The pictures ended here. Whoops. The last adventure occurred when Sheryl and I were walking back to the room and met Rehab's resident DJ. I suppose I should have developed my connection and open the doors to bigger things, but... the situation was a little sketch and I was ready to crash. The end.

July 24: Vegas, The Room

Champagne Life (Remix) - Neyo ft. Rick Ross by BBlanco

The big reason why we were in Vegas was because Derrick booked a 2-bed room at the Hard Rock Hotel for $30. Dirt cheap. Well the way the story goes is that Derrick batted his pretty little eyes and flashed his million dollar smile and for an extra $20, upgraded to a bigger room. We walked in and the room was pretty dope: 2 TVs, a couch, 1.5 baths, and a king size bed. And some pretty crazy wallart.

A nice room, but only 1 bed for 6 people? Maybe we should try and claim the 2-bed room for the sake of beds. Then we saw these curtains that hid the secret door...

Sickkkk outdoor daybeds on our personal patio! It was about 8pm and a hot 90 degrees. Sleeping outside is definitely an option!

Just beyond the gate...

Our private pool?! BOSS. This pool was so dope, and only 3 other suites had access to it.



We gon' make it rain on dem hoes!

It's a celebration bitches.

Like a BOSS. You did good kid.
