Boy, I wish we coulda known THIS Las Vegas!!
Or this Vegas:
Or even this:
Unfortunately, when we Yujeaners go, in 2010, it tends to look more like this:
Yeah, it’s just work, work, work. What you have to imagine in this photo, taken last week at the ASD show, are the HORDES of people who visited us just minutes after this was taken, and they just kept coming through the whole show! Old customers, old friends, new customers, people opening new businesses. It felt like all the people who were holding their collective breath through the lousy economy saw the light, the new shoots of spring, and came to life! Our mom and pop customers have really taken a beating these last months, and we were SO happy to see them back–and full of the fighting, optimistic, entrepreneurial spirit we love them for.
(And, so you don’t feel TOO sorry for us, C and H spent one evening at Jason Alexander’s one man show, Donny Clay at Planet Hollywood–he is fantastic, and nothing at all like either George Costanza or Larry David! Highly recommended. And this writer was $70 ahead on the slots at Terrible’s, which–trust me– is even more of a miracle than the economy reviving.)
Great show, great business, great time!
