Las Vegas is known for a lot of things: showgirls, gambling, and being the place where whatever sins you indulge in, no one at home has to know any better.

Much as we'd like to, we can't always get to EVERY festival that happens. That's why we have friends like Ari Lehman, who travels extensively and who can bring us a blow-by-blow of the events as they happened.
