Our colt Backbackbackgone is running Saturday January 24 at Gulfstream in Miami, and the Godfather is heading down to head up the cheering section.  You will never guess who is joing me at Gulfstream.  I’ll give you a hint – he was a Daydream Believer.  The Godfather will wave at you from the Winner’s Circle.

On the event front, The Godfather’s "Sit Down" at the House of Blues Dallas this week is SOLD OUT.  In February, I’ll host events at the House of Blues West Hollywood and City Club San Francisco.  The next two Las Vegas based events are at the Las Vegas Hilton in April and Red Rock Resort in June.

On the job front, congratulations to Brandon Mikkelsen (Fontainebleau Resorts) and Brian Strickland (Worlddoc).  I have several other candidates close to job offers, so with God’s grace, hope to get a few more outstanding executives back in the game this quarter.

Finally, on the charity front we have several wonderful events coming up.  The Arthritis Foundation will host Oscar Night America on February 22 at Rain inside the Palms Las Vegas.  This is the Official Academy Awards party.  For tickets, contact The Godfather at mwayman@godfatherlv.com.  Three Square is hosting DISH on April 3 at the Las Vegas Springs Preserve.  For more information go to www.threesquare.org.  Make a Wish will have their annual gala May 9 at Planet Hollywood.  Check out snv.wish.org.
