ONE NIGHT IN TOKYO

I dont know why this never posted!!  Well, um 4 years later?  Here is one night in Tokyo!

 

Oh my god, what a night!  My third night in Tokyo we took the subway to Roppongi, a really fancy area of Tokyo with lots of shopping, restaurants, and nightclubs.  Fiona says its called Roppongi Hills and reminds her of Beverly Hills.  Mmmmmk!

Every 5 minutes we were offered with $500.00 glasses of wine, bottles of champagne, and shots of fruity vodka.  All free, and all tasty.  What a night!  Absolutely an experience I won’t soon forget.

Me, Andrea, Fiona, and Annya

Andrea and Annya are Fiona’s roommates.  All of them are models in Japan for 3-4 months.

I brought many nicer outfits with me but it is so hot there that all I wanted to wear was tank tops and shorts!  I ended up wearing my Urban Outfitters tank and lime green bandeau.  My necklace is from Pink Latte, a Japanese store, that I bought the day before.  I bought my white chain purse while in Japan that morning.

First we went to a nightclub called Newlex.  If you are a white/European/American model, you get in free, free drinks, and free food all night.  Basically celebrities.  If you are not a model/Asian, you had to pay.  Reminder: we are IN Tokyo…it was like all white people!  So weird.

Uhm hello…beautiful French man.

And little Japanese girls.

We then headed to another club called Feria where Leonardo Dicaprio was supposed to go that night but we have no idea what happened to him.

So we moved on to the third club of the night, Jumanji 55, at about 2am.

This club was free and full of Japanese people.  Much more normal than the other Russian-models-only club.

And also a little crazier.

Fiona and model from Germany.

I was so jet lagged and tired that I was dying in the early morning partying hours.  The girls were only just getting started by Fiona and I caught a cab home around 4am (also paid for by Fiona’s many admirers).  Wow.  Just wow.

Last night was pretty epic.  Kara and I drank in (literally and figuratively) the awesomeness of Las Vegas.  We were VIPs at Body English’s Grand Re-Opening at Hard Rock Hotel.  We drank free drinks and ate delicious eclairs.  But most importantly, we paused and remembered, the seemingly lofty  conversations at the time, about how after college we were both going to move to Las Vegas and Kara was going to do PR for the hotels on the strip, and I was going to be a Vegas Showgirl.  And here we were, VIP invitees surrounded by the most influential media, television, PR, newspaper people in town.  Not too shabby!  And Body English was awesome!  Music was great, vibe is cool, atmosphere enjoyable.  Highly recommend it and will be going back often! It’s a nightclub AND afterhours club, which means it will be open late!  Good for us night owls!

After shmoozing with Vegas big-wigs we headed downtown in the rain to do some bar hopping at Dont Tell Mama, Commonwealth, The Griffin, and Drink and Drag.  Always love my Fridays here in Vegas and this one didn’t let us down!  We took to the dance floor/stage at Drink and Drag, which was very entertaining.  Never a dull moment there with the Jubilee! girls!  Especially loved singing to Rock of Ages Musical soundtrack in my car with Kara.  Love you, babe!  🙂  We did it!

Jubilee! Cast Goes to See Phantom of the Opera!

 

Part Four of my most awesomest week ever: Phantom!  The show was incredible!  When the chandelier came to life in the beginning of the show and the famous organ music started I was fighting back tears!  It’s a breath taking theater with ornate gold design and red velvet box seats.  The show was amazing!

 

Julie and I on the Phantom stage in our twinsie dresses.  Where we were born to be! 😉  Thanks to Julie being BFF’s with some of the Phantom cast, we got to go BACKSTAGE!

 

We were a little excited.  I loved meeting some of the Phantom cast members and seeing their backstage and dressing rooms.  They have an ELEVATOR which needs to be installed in our Jubilee! theater pronto!  I would love to avoid the 1,010 stairs i have to climb every day! 😀 (bats eyelashes)

 

 

 

Showgirls!  Phantom was great and all, but I especially loved the part when we were backstage and some random people on a tour saw we were the showgirls from Jubilee! and asked us to take a picture with them!  Hahah so famous!  Even at Phantom! 😮

 

Gorgeous staircase from the Masquerade scene up close and personal because we are Jubilee! VIP!!!!!

 

Me and the very handsome Andrew who has been in the show for 4 1/2 years and plays Raoul!  He has the most beautiful voice!  And he’s just beautiful also.  😉  I had a fabulous time!!

Vegas Tip #123:  See this show before it leaves Vegas in September!  The Phantom theater at The Venetian Hotel was built FOR this show which makes it infinitely more fantastic.  What they’re saying is true: you will never see it like this again!  The chandelier scenes are awesome and the whole atmosphere of the theater is brilliant, which you can’t experience in Newark, New Jersey or even L.A.  Plus, the singing is to die for!  Go see it!

Jubilee! Cast Celebrates 31 Years!

 

Tuesday the cast of Jubilee! celebrated its 31st year on the strip!  It’s just incredible how long this show has been running and I feel so lucky to be in the cast!  We partied in style in the VIP section of Pure Nightclub with a pretty pink and orange anniversary cake.  Though no one got a slice, it’s the thought that counts?

 

I loved seeing all my awesome co-workers looking relatively normal.  🙂  And by that I mean sans 3 foot false eyelashes and bird feathers.

 

Me and two of my fellow short nudes: Elyse from Australia, and Annelise from France!

 

Party animals!  Erin and I dancing the night away.  I had such a good time with good company.  Couldn’t ask for more!  Thanks, Pure!

Surf and Sand Hotel, Laguna Beach

My aunt Rita, second from left, reps hotels and treated her 3 favorite nieces to a night at the Surf and Sand Hotel on the water in Laguna Beach, CA. The hotel is gorgeous and the views are even better. There’s nothing in front of the hotel but beach and lapping waves. Unfortunately it was raining this weekend, but we sat by the fire and chatted. It was lovely!

We had the penthouse suite, which can go for up to $3,000 a night in the summer. We felt very special.

Yesterday night we went to the bar in the hotel called Splashes which is literally right on the beach. You can’t get a better view of the ocean. We watched the sunset and ordered drinks, truffle cheese fries, calamari, and fish tacos. We had a great time hanging out together with family we hardly ever get to see since everyone is so busy!
