I was glad to see that the show Absinthe won for the best production show to bring visitors to. I was one of the first people to see Absinthe when it first came to the Caesars Tent, at Caesars Palace in Vegas, and from the first time I saw it, to the last time I attended, I thought it was fabulous and I absolutely love the Gazillionaire and Penny Pibbets.

Naya Simone won for “Drag Queen We Love” and she certainly deserves the award. I love Maya Simone who I first met a few years ago when she starred in the Drag Queen Cabaret Show at Lucky Cheng’s in Las Vegas. She is an outstanding personality and you can see Maya in the show “Match Game” at Drink & Drag downtown.

Another outstanding character was Sir Gaga, who in real life answers to the name of Gary Fisher. Gary was kept busy taking pictures with everyone in Stoney’s. He was dressed up with loads of jewelry, feathers, beads, scarves, tight spandex leggings, lots of glitter and you name it, he was wearing it. He looked like a walking department store.

Seen partying with the best of the best winners was John Payne who is one of the stars of the hit show “Raiding the Rock Vault” at the LVH Hotel and Casino. It is a fabulous two hour rock concert that keeps the audience clapping, singing and on their feet. John Payne is the co-producer and musical director of the show. These amazing musicians were all former members of some of the best bands.

It was a fun night and I love the Weekly Magazine which I say is the best weekly publication in Las Vegas that keeps Las Vegas informed and entertained.
