    Heartily agree, Breaker of Leopold and Loeb. We did an April LPGA event in Vegas at the LVCC, right across the street, and stayed at the LV Hilton. Used to spend many a night in that sportsbook.

    That event (Takefuji Classic) unfortunately no longer exists.

    And KP, the Cask 'n Flagon is a blast.

    Big John's Tavern on East Bay Street, Charleston, S.C., opened by former Giants linebacker John Canaday. "Come as a stranger, leave as a friend."

    I love The Other Place in KC (in both Olathe and Overland Park, which is suburban KCK) so much more. TVs everywhere so you never miss anything, great food, great drinks, cheap prices. Been nearly a year since I've been there, but I can't wait to go next Sunday.

    As for Boston's The Fours (right near The Garden) and Cask 'n Flagon (right near Fenway), I second both. Awesome places.

    Birdie, I was at that goddamn event. You could have taken me out for a fancy dinner.

    When?????? This year? I actually was in Vegas that week, but wasn't working it. Worked it in '04 and '05.

    What, pratell, brought a swinging Richard like you to a C-list LPGA event?

    Damn, Jonesie. We'd of eaten real well.

    Is Friar Tuck's still around the corner from the Parker House?

    Scribe and Oz,

    Were you there this year? They gutted the whole place last winter. Somehow, the new place is even better, though I do miss the nights of being the only one in there with my feet on the bar. Just don't miss the 2" of sludge on the floor.

    slap, not sure about friar tuck's. I rarely find myself in that neighborhood.

    No. I didn't work Takefuji this year. Went on that rarity called a "family vacation" to Zion and Bryce Cyn parks, with one-night stays going and coming back in Vegas that same week. But I was with the kids, so except for a late-night poker outing after they went to bed, my Vegas entertainment was lazer tag at Circus-Circus.

    Ah, I was doing a Natalie Gulbis story that became a "Babes of the LPGA" story, because talking to Natalie wasn't quite as, um, enlightening as I'd hoped it might be.

    Thought it might be last year, given the galleries... And by galleries, I mean me.
