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).
