Meeting Tony Bennett

I'm going to start by name-dropping, too. About 15 years ago, I was in Las Vegas for the Consumer Electronics Show. I had a late meeting at Bally's; I was walking though the casino around midnight, heading back to my cheap hotel on Boulder Highway, and stopped for a couple of moments to watch the play at a roulette table. The table operator indicated an empty spot at the table, but I smiled and shook my head.

There was another guy standing there watching, too, and the table operator and pit boss obviously knew him. "You don't play?" he asked me. I told him that I didn't gamble, and was in town for CES. You? "I'm a singer here," he said, "I had a show tonight, so I'm winding down." "Oh really?" I said. "And playing Vegas. Do you like it?" "It's been pretty good to me," he said. We just stood there and visited for maybe another ten minutes or so about Las Vegas and life in general, and then we exchanged good nights and I headed back to my hotel.

When I got there, there was a "This Week in Vegas" magazine on the nightstand. My friend was on ths cover -- I'd been visiting with Tony Bennett.
