Vegas

Las Vegas has always been somewhere I wanted to visit. Its appearance in countless movies made it seem luxurious and the place to go to have fun! My first experience going there was about a year ago. I went to see T's new weekly gig at Omnia nightclub whilst over in L.A. Initially Vegas seemed …

Palm Springs
