Steve's birthday party was held at the Emeril Lagasse Stadium - Bar, Book & BAM in the Palazzo Hotel. It is a massive sports bar, restaurant and sports book on three levels. Most patrons are seated in situations such as the one photographed above. Plush sofas, a zillion massive televisions and friendly servers attending to your every request.
But we were special! For Steve's 60th, Mary arranged for a private "sky box" for our own private tailgate party to watch Oregon v Virginia. The box included a large private living area with a 65-inch television, an outdoor covered patio - complete with pool table and several more televisions... which then continued on to an outdoor fountain overlooking Las Vegas Boulevard. No kidding. It was over-the-top. The living area Pool table on covered patio, and sunny deck/fountain beyond
There is no way Kathy and I are going to be able to top this for Woody or DT's 60th birthdays.
Mary brought several baby photos of Steve and placed banners around the room to celebrate His Big Day. A steady flow of tailgate foods keep arriving from the kitchen, along with buckets of beer.#3 Chris and #1 Lynn enjoy their Dad's party Cory (#4), Mary, Kathy, Lynn (#1) and Laura (wife of #3) Steve & Mary's two youngest - Cory & Chris Cory & #2 Kelly Steve's family together for his 60th Birthday ARE YOU READY FOR SOME MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL?

It was a great day and the Ducks won again, away - and again by a landslide. We had so much fun and will have such wonderful memories from this weekend... well, except for one little glitch:Pick pocketed? Lost? Stolen? Mary no longer has a wallet.
Until my next update, I remain, your birthday correspondent.
