Behind the Bar Exam: Horse Around Bar at Circus Circus

The Famous Emily & I

The Famous Emily & I at the Horse Around Bar

People have been telling me that I have the best job on earth with my Bar Exam column for the Las Vegas Weekly. Generally, it goes like this: “What? You have to go to bars and write about them? That must be the best job on earth!”

If the job paid a million dollars a year, perhaps it would be. But since it doesn’t, I settle for the priceless joy of creative expression and tax write-offs. Sometimes, I even get to indulge myself with well-placed (if I do say so myself) Hunter S. Thompson quotes. As I did in last week’s edition of Bar Exam, which focused on Fear and Lothing in Las Vegas‘ famous Merry-Go-Round Bar.

The above photo captures my first trip to the famed bar. The famous Emily, who appears in 90% of my LV Weekly articles, is radiant in red. She is holding an empty container of pink cotton candy (popcorn not pictured).

  1. But why does Emily look so grumpy in that picture?!

  2. I’d be Grumpy too.

  3. Don’t worry. She soon cheered up after I shared my blue cotton candy. I miss you, Emily!

  4. I’m starting to think that the only other person who cares about the Horse Around is CMoonReed.

  5. Matty, I hope that many, many people care about the Horse Around bar. Do you know of any? Maybe we should start a fan club. Get some t-shirts made?

  6. I love the carousel bar.
