Pick of the Day: Wayne Newton

Danke Schoen, Baby, Danke Schoen

Man, am I so stoked for tonight's concert at Casino Regina Lounge by Mr. Vegas himself.

I've only actually spent six hours in my life in the U. S. (courtesy of a shopping excursion in July 1973 to Whynot Minot on a rainy day during a family vacation at Kenosee). But if I ever do decide one day to aquire a passport and journey south to the land of the brave and the home of the free Las Vegas would definitely be one of the primo destinations I would consider visiting after New York, Chicago, New Orleans, San Francisco, Seattle, Los Angeles, Boston, Miami, St. Louis, Denver, San Diego, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Portland, Atlanta, Washington and maybe a dozen other cities.

For now, though, I'll have to content myself with basking in the glow of Vegas royalty at this gig. If Mr. Newton's staying at the Hotel Sask, I might even stake out the lobby in the hopes of catching a glimpse of him. There's plenty of video of Mr. Newton on YouTube, but for true fans, I found this gem. (YouTube)
