Stuck in Vegas

December 29, 2010

For those of you who don’t read my other blog, I’ve been in Las Vegas for the past week for the Christmas holiday.  I had a blast.  At this very moment, I was supposed to be home in Burlington, but my flight home last night was canceled, and now I’m stuck in Vegas for a […]

This is the third of a four-part series reviewing and comparing the four dueling piano shows on the Strip in Las Vegas.
