Great way to start the year. Playing the newly refurbished Golden Nugget. As always, we flew in the day before. They’ve done a great job of renovation: The rooms are well-appointed and the lobby is as glitzy as ever!

Soon after our arrival, we met up with old friends of the band; Tom & Kathy Snouffer.

Fremont Street has also been upgraded. I suppose this is to compete with “the Strip”. Sadly our time here coincided with the untimely death of David Bowie, and there were tributes all over the place.
