Holiday greetings from the Godfather of Las Vegas!

Opportunity Village Camelot honoring Venetian President Rob Goldstein was a huge success last weekend.  Never seen so many gaming guys in one place in my life!

Jim Murren and Steve Wynn were quoted this week, stating that Las Vegas has stabilized.  They are two of the best Operators in the business, and I agree with them – we have reached the bottom.  Although hiring will not stage a dramatic recovery in 2011, there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Sorry, no events in LA or SF this quarter.  Unfortunately, I don’t have enough business in California to justify the time and effort to host an executive mixer.  No referrals – no parties.  Hope to host an even in Hollywood during February 2011, and all four Las Vegas events are on the books for next year.   You might have to travel to Las Vegas if you want to meet my clients and friends!

Quote of the Month – If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, "thank you," that would suffice.  (Meister Eckhart)

Scripture of the Month – But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. (Matthew 6:33)

Please remember the reason for the season.  Wishing you and yours a glorious Holiday Season!
