Having resided in Vancouver (B.C.) for approximately ten years during my rebellious hippie youth, I was quite shocked when the news footage of riots in the picturesque respite by the sea flooded the airwaves on nightly-news shows this past week.
As comic Jay Mohr noted last night on a talk-show, Vancouver has always been "home" to a multitude of peace-loving anti-war potheads.
So, what gives?
What elements have crept into the fabric of society on the normally gentle Pacific Northwest Coast to trigger such an alarming violent reaction to a loss at a mere sports match?
I have always been proud of the fact "us" Canadians tend to be neutral, cool-headed, and all-round good sportsmen when it gets down to the nitty-gritty.
I expect that pundits North of the border - in the wake of the tragic turn-of-events - are blaming American influences from south of the border, shadowy foreign upstarts with ulterior motives lurking in the shadows, whatever.
If what happened this past week is a sign of what Canada is all about these days, for sure, I prefer to reside in the United States.
Even if I do miss the strong Canadian beer!
American brews suck, after all!
Riots in quaint pot-town a shocker!
Nudists catch rays at infamous Wreck Beach!
On Thursday, Country & Western superstar Garth Brooks was inducted into the 42nd Songwriters "Hall of Fame" by his peers.
Brooks delighted guests when he took the stage with Billy Joel at the chi-chi awards ceremony in NYC (both were clad in chic black cowboy ensembles) and performed a vastly entertaining duet which featured the hit tune "Shameless".
Gracious Brooks was quick to turn the spotlight on Billy Joel, though, which underscored just how humble the celebrated cowpoke can be.
"Billy Joel is one of the greatest songwriters of all time," Brooks gushed in so many words, as the rapt audience gazed on from below the footlights.
The fact that Joel took a day out of his life to saunter onto the stage with Brooks made the C&W performer feel "lucky".
Fans will be, too, in the event they managed to snap up tickets for the Brooks gig about to kick-off at the Wynn Resort later this week.
When Steve Wynn first signed Garth Brooks to the upcoming stint on the strip the show-biz news made headlines around the country.
The lucrative deal left Brooks "sitting pretty" with a host of spoils that lesser-knowns could only pray and fantasize about ever achieving.
For example, a fleet of stretch "Rolls Royce" limousines purring at the curb 24/7 - and luxury jets at-the-ready to take flight on a whim at the drop-of-a-cowboy-hat - are nothing to sniff at.
How do I hop aboard, Mr. Wynn?
By the way, break a leg, eh Garth?

Some folks have found a unique way to celebrate "Father's Day" with good ole Dad as the temperatures soar into the three digits today in the desert oasis.
Families are packing up the SUV and heading to the Great Vegas Festival of Beer in Tivoli Village to chug-a-lug a tasty ale or two.
The "Fest" is the first of its kind in the area and is sponsored by local duo Motley Brews.
Tourists and locals alike will have a golden thirst-quenching opportunity to sample about 100 beers from top breweries.
Vendors will be offering up scrumptious snacks, too.
Kava Kreation will also perform island-inspired music.
The beer extravaganza runs from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. tonight.
Your patronage, by the way, will help raise funds for Boys and Girls Clubs in the vicinity.
See 'ya there!
On the show-biz circuit to promote the "Green Lantern" (released around the country at a theatre near you this week) Ryan Reynolds (sexy flavor of the month) fessed up that he was suspended from a high school in Vancouver (B.C.) for being a naughty cut-up when he was a pimply-faced teen.
But, the penalty - according to the buffed hunk (who sauntered out from behind the curtain in an elegant cream-colored suit teamed with a tasteful chic tie on one top-rated talk-show) - was a plus.
"That's punishment? Staying home from school?" he chuckled to the host, in so many words.
"I just laid back on my bed all day and masturbated to Spanish soap operas!"
Those Latino hunks are sure to cause a rise in the old Levis - if that's your cup-of-tea - that is.
Maybe Ryan should hook up with Ricky Martin next time they cross paths on the red carpet, eh?
By the way, Mr. Reynolds appears to have "butched-up" his act a smidgen since the last time I caught one of his insightful (!) interviews on the telly.
Somehow, the outgoing performer came across as less "gay" than he usually does.
His cut muscled bod doesn't hurt his image, for starters.
But, according to the charismatic actor - who triggers whoops and hollers from fans (both female & male) whenever he makes a public appearance (and in movie theatres when he pops up on screen) - he's ready to heave whenever a reporter quizzes him about his awesome abs.
Now that the action-adventure film is in the can and screening around the Nation - and the strenuous work-outs are behind him - the handsome thespian underscores that he pines to loll about on the couch and chug-a-lug about ten beers.
"I'm Canadian, after all," he shrugs, without apology.
Us Canucks can party-hearty, alright.
And, kick some butt, when the local hockey team loses big time in a sports match.
By the way, I intend to catch the "Green Lantern" over the weekend (and will post a review in the next few days).

A man's tie says it all subliminally!
Yesterday afternoon, Anthony Weiner stood at the podium at a noisy press conference (where angry upstarts in the unruly gallery below the floodlights shouted out obscenities at the beleaugered politician caught with his pants down) and informed frenzied members of the press that he was resigning his post as Congressman for the 9th District of New York.
A cheer when up in the crowd!
At this juncture, though, a sad "sick" chapter of Weiner's professional and personal life came to a sorry close on a sour note.
In spite of that moment of closure, folks are still shaking their heads in total disbelief, today.
Did the high-profile Government official actually thinkFacebook) without getting his dick caught in the wringer?
As one pundit astutely notely:
"Weiner had a death wish, obviously."
Of course, there were other glaring missteps which hastened his shocking demise.
Fashionistas have been babbling about the obvious for days!
For example, in one of the e-mails that was offered up at a News Conference to establish evidence of Weiner's wrongdoing, it was pointed out that the horndog actually lamented to one gal pal that his "package" wasn't getting the respect that it deserved.
Well, if that was the case, it was Weiner's own fault from the very get-go!
I dare say.
After all, those dreary grey boxers Weiner donned for his first incident of sexual hijinks were - not only an unsightly eyesore in respect to style - but also sadly lacking in the tightie-whities erotica department as well (especially when it comes to the oh-so-touchy art of sexual foreplay).
For starters, any underwear that "flattens out" the "junk" - or rides-up unflatteringly at the crotch is a definite no-no.
In a nutshell?
Weiner should have modelled a few sexy underthings first in front of a full-length mirror (rehearsed a few sexy poses, too) before snapping and zipping off those pedestrian publicity stills which left a lot to be desired in respect to arousal potential.
With that in mind, here's a selection of sexy underthings sure to "blow" their load next, time!
Let me know how 'ya make out Anthony, eh?
Khloe Kardashian...celebrates Birthday in Vegas @ Chateau! David Spade at Venetian! Mary Wilson @ Riviera!
Celebs have been flying in-and-out of town this past week attending annivessary celebrations of popular musical hits such as "LOVE" (Paul McCartney, Yoko Ono, George Marin), signing books at trendy "in" spots on the strip (Holly Madison at Paris), and making a splash at the spanking-new opening of Nikki Beach at the newly-renovated Tropicana (Wayne Newton).
And, the trend continues over the weekend, go figure!
In spite of the fact three-digit temperatures have been sending locals - and tourists alike - poolside to seek much-needed relief!
Tonight, Khloe Kardashian - of reality-TV fame - will be toasted at a "B"-day celebration at the Chateau Nightclub at Paris.
David Spade, the hilarious stand-up comic and perennial funnyman, returns to the Venetian tonight (June 17th) and tomorrow night (June 18th).
If you hurry, there may be a few seats available, before a crush hits the Hotel Lobby early this evening in a mad scramble for tickets last-minute.
Mr. Spade is a popular performer on the strip - in large part due to his hilarious sarcasm - and distinctive quick wit.
Fans may recall that the zany comic appeared in two well-received feature films "Tommy Boy" and "Joe Dirt".
His role in the TV Sitcom - "Just Shoot Me" - earned Mr. Spade a coveted Emmy Award (or two) and a coveted Golden Globe nomination.
In the past, Spade's informal style has put the audience at ease - enough so - that they tend to feel they're right at home instead of the environs of the cozy theatre at the upscale chic Hotel.
Expected the unexpected when he trots on stage tonight.
Vanilla Ice will be also performing LIVE! at the chic Luxor on June 18th at LAX Nightclub.
Fans of the Supremes will no doubt try to catch Mary Wilson at the Riviera too.
June 22nd - July 3rd.
At press time, concert handlers noted that locals will be treated to a 50% discount off their tickets!

Some celebs - Lindsay Lohan, for example - are hauled off to court kicking-and-screaming without too much problem.
Provided Sheriffs are in tow!
Standing before a Judge is not a piece of a cake, though, even for an actor skilled at play-acting.
On occasion, getting the naughty few to appear before a Judge as the frenzied tabloid press jockey for a perch in the gallery on the sidelines, is tantamount to pulling wisdom teeth!
I expect that if Charlie Sheen was hoping to make a big splash on his much-anticipated upcoming day-in-court, that his ego must be a bit deflated now, as the news flashed out of the court environs over the past twenty-four hours.
A Judge presiding over his long-awaited lawsuit against Warner Brothers Studios just ruled that Charlie may not have the opportunity to litigate his case in open court.
What a pisser, eh?
The legal decision is based on a valid clause in bad-boy Sheen's contract with Warner Brothers which stipulates that an arbitrator must preside over legal disputes in respect to contract issues.
Previously, Sheen vehemently opposed the arbitration route in papers that were lodged with the court in April earlier this year.
Marty Singer, Sheen's attorney, has argued to all within earshot that the recent ruling does not necessarily determine whether the case will be heard privately - and so - the legal eagle is bent on obtaining a further ruling from the bench warmer that allows for the litigation to proceed in a public forum later this year.
Sheen has alleged in his causes of action that he has a valid claim for damages to the tune of $10 million based on royalties due on reruns and sales of the show (Two and A Half Men).
In addition to the monies alleged due, Sheen is suing on the grounds that he was fired by management with the express aim of punishing him for emergency hospitalizations and attacks on producer Chuck Lorre in high-profile interviews he gave in the wake of being kicked off the lot at Warner Brothers.
Superior Court Judge Allan Goodman, who is presiding over the legal proceedings, has asked that both parties provide updates on the progress of the arbitration by November 20th (2011).

The phenomenon of "Brokeback Mountain" continues!
The City of West Hollywood will present an expanded version of "Beyond Brokeback" with a staged reading of messages, essays, poetry, and music inspired by the award-winning ground-breaking film directed by Oscar-winner Ang Lee.
The event is slated for June 25th and is funded through the Arts & Cultural Affairs Commission, the Lesbian and Gay Advisory Board, and Out West 2011.
The event is sponsored under the auspices of the One City/One Pride Series.
The event is free and the public is welcome to attend.
No reservations are required.
"Beyond Brokeback" was first developed and performed at the Autry National Center last December as part of its acclaimed "Out West" at the Autry series and in commemoration of the 5th Anniversary of release of the film "Brokeback Mountain".
"Beyond Brokeback" was most recently performed by the Theatre and Dance Department of the University of Wyoming in Laramie for the Shepard Symposium on Social Justice in April and is scheduled to be presented by Chicago’s Roosevelt University in its 3,700 seat historic Auditorium Theatre on November 13th (Director/David Zak).
"Beyond Brokeback: A Staged Reading with Music" was adapted by "Out West" at the Autry creator and producer Gregory Hinton from the 2007 book "Beyond Brokeback: Impact of a Film" written by Members of the Ultimate Brokeback Forum website (culled from over 500,000 posts).
Excerpts of poignant and humorous messages, essays, and poetry (by writers young and old, male and female, gay and straight ) will be interpreted by six readers.
Original songs from the CD “Meet Me on the Mountain” - inspired by the film (written by acclaimed Los Angeles Master Chorale singer/composer Shawn Kirchner) - will also be performed by Kirchner and readers Alice Kirwan Murray, Marlene Head and Michael Butler Murray.
Other readers include Lydia Nibley and William Handley.

Two hunky heart-throbs a gay fantasy couple!
If you're as old as the hills like moi - or inclined to watch a few reruns late at night when the insomnia sets in - then you probably recall the hilarious sketches that Lily Tomlin appeared in on Laugh-In many moons ago.
Her characterizations were hilarious - Ernestine the telephone operator - probably the most memorable.
Now the gal with all the glitzy awards hardware - four Emmys, one Tony, one Grammy and two Peabody Awards - is obviously hankering to kick up her heels and entertain live for her fans on stage once again.
So, the remarkable multi-talented Tomlin, will be appearing on stage at The Orleans (Las Vegas) June 18th - June 19th (this weekend).
I met Lily at a Film Festival a few years ago in Culver City and found the woman to be warm, outgoing, and gracious.
Expect a lot of the same on the occasion of her two-night concert (which will probably sell-out).

On one of the morning talk shows recently, Vince Neil was quite ecstatic about an upcoming gig at the Red Rock Amphitheatre on June 18th in the desert oasis.
According to the effervescent musician, trotting out on stage to perform live is still a huge adrenalin rush!
After all, the kid's not jaded, folks!
Last year, I caught a concert he tossed in tandem with the grand opening of a tattoo parlour at one of the local Hotel Resorts just off the Vegas strip.
I tell 'ya - the dude can not only still kick ass on stage - but thrill fans as well as the rock 'n roll elite!
At the Red Rock, Mr. Neil will reunited with former band members - Mick Mars, Nikki Sixx, and the legendary Tommy Lee - and is expected to wow once again.
A fan or two will be delighted to hear that Tommy Lee intends to invite one or two lucky ticket-holders up onto the stage to participate in his "roller coaster" drum ride!
At a recent press junket, Lee excitedly noted that at one point in the show, his kit will be lifted off the ground and spin at a full 360 degrees as he wildly plays 'em.
Can't wait, can you?
By the by, the New York Dolls are booked to warm up Motley Crue when the curtain goes up.
Back in the 1970's, I used to bump into "David Doll" around town in those heady days when the music subculture was thriving in the lower east side.
When it came to a sexy "front man" - the androgynous David Doll - was totally "it".
His wardrobe was the envy of David Bowie, just betcha!
It will be curious to get a gander at the New York Dolls a dozen-or-two years later in Vegas.
See 'ya there!
As I sauntered through Caesars Palace last night, I got caught up in a crush of Celine Dion fans jockeying for position in line at the stage door of the Colosseum.
The atmosphere was electrically-charged as ticket-holders buzzed with excitement over the Pop Diva's latest gig in the exotic desert oasis that is Las Vegas.
Celine has been blessed with quite a diverse fan base which was in evidence last night everywhere 'ya turned in the midst of the ecstatic concert-goers that milled about excitedly 'til well past midnight.
Although a handful of handsome men sported elegant white linen suits, a gang of regular folks (tourists and locals alike) also turned out in trendy casual shorts and fashionable 't'-shirts etched with her image on front.
On one wall a huge portrait of Celine with her bare back turned to the viewer cheekily screamed out to all in attendance.
A clever eye-catching promotion, eh?
Meanwhile, a host of Celine-lovers were inclined to dash into the souvenir shop next-door to snatch up a bevy of keep-sakes.
There was quite a wide selection of offerings on hand - from pricey "Celine" wristwatches studded with diamonds - to simple gold bracelets affordably-priced for the budget-minded fan!
Of course, there were dozens of CD's on hand - in both English and French - for die-hard Celine fans to snap up and listen to on the ride back home or to their hotels.
According to the doorman the concert was a sell-out!
Ms. Dion is a popular songbird to reckon with in the industry.

Mayor Goodman - the head honcho at City Hall on his way "out" - does not intend to end his long stint in the "hot seat" with a whimper - or without a King-size Martini or three in hand!
In fact - handlers at the Mayor's Office have just announced - that the man with an eye for pretty showgirls - and a no-nonsense approach to desert politics - is tossing a kick-off party at the Fremont Street Experience tomorrow night at Stage 1 in downtown Las Vegas!
Locals - and tourists alike - are invited to celebrate with His Honor between 7 p.m. - 9 p.m.

Shortly after the elaborate lobby of the Sahara Hotel shut down - and management took inventory - a spokesperson for the legendary Hotel (where Elvis, the Beatles, and a host of other notables either graced the stage or passed-out on the comfy beds in the well-appointed suites too pooped to participate) announced that the business entity which controlled the assets would be selling-off all the contents of the once-sumptuous lodgings.
The Sahara Hotel is holding a "nostalgia sale".
"Everything must go," the owners noted yesterday to the media, in no uncertain terms.
Except for the "roller-coaster" - out front - which stays.
Starting tomorrow, the Sahara will toss open its doors - at $10.00 a pop - and allow serious buyers (lookie-loos, too) to browse for keepsakes.
And, what a treasure trove that will be!
"I'd like one of those Elvis publicity stills that has been gracing the wall for years," one fan gushed to a reporter who was there to take stock of the inventory.
A few former guests are bent on snapping up the "Camel" table lamps which once rested on each nightstand in all the suites at the Sahara until renovations a few years ago which transformed the overall "look" of the Vegas digs.
A life-size camel is also going on the chopping block ($12,000.00) alongside slot machines, gaming tables, and even the kitchen sink!
Unfortunately, collectors - and sentimental locals - won't be able to take a gander at the offerings online before the items start flying out the front door.
All interested parties must pay the entrance fee up-front at the lobby doors to get a glance at the unique collectibles.
"It's first-come, first-served," underscored the Hotel employee with a tinge of melancholy in his voice.
The "yard sale" kicks off tomorrow bright-and-early (if I am not mistaken).
Check with the Hotel staff for details.
See 'ya there!
A bevy of bodacious babes have been sashaying around "Sin City" with one precious goal in mind.
Why, to snatch up the coveted crown for Miss USA, in a glitzy celebration slated to be launched at Planet Hollywood's tony environs on the weekend!
In fact, since this year's hopefuls first paraded on the star-studded red carpet a week ago (there are 51 contestants in all), the competition has been sizzling hot 'n heavy!
The young beauties have not only been anxiously posing for official high-fashion photographs - but also- dashing off to wardrobe fittings, in addition to indulging in whimsical hair and makeup sessions.
For those hankering to get a gander at the finalists, cruise on over to Miss USA.com, to get an up-close look at the swimsuit publicity stills.
Sarah Chapman, Miss Nevada USA, is featured in her Kandy Wrappers bikini!
Although reigning Miss USA (Rima Fakih) has lamented to the press in recent days that handlers behind-the-scenes at the pageant have unfairly scolded her for being too much of a "party animal", the last word is that the exotic darling will teach a belly-dance class poolside at the end of fast-paced kick-off week.
Then, Fakih will end her reign with a perfect send-off from illusionist Nathan Burton.
According to insiders, the magician will levitate the current Miss USA 10 feet above a waterfall at the trendy "in" spot where the festivities are expected to unfold to a packed house.
If the scuttlebutt is true, the organization - and all its hard-working employees - are praying Rima will simply vanish into thin air!

Studly Dave after-hours at CBS!
Though political pundits (and critics from across the aisle in Congress) have been poking fun at scandal-ridden Anthony Weiner's crotch shots surfacing on social hubs around the Internet, Dave Letterman has been inclined to flatter the beleaguered man-of-the-hour who got caught with his pants down.
"I've seen the naked photos," quipped toothy Dave to his rapt audience the other evening.
"Weiner has nothing to be ashamed about," the popular talk-show host beamed with admiration, as the packed house roared back in response.
Obviously, the comic has been scrutinizing the stills up-close-and-personal for some inexplicable reason.
I expect - that like any hot-blooded male - Letterman was just checking the "dude's" tool out (like guys tend to do at the urinal in the mens room) to get a sense of how he blessed he is compared to the rest of the male species.
After all, every dude hankers to know where he - um - measures up when it comes to his "junk".
But, when Letterman persisted with the dialogue last night, it begged a question.
Is Dave queer for Weiner's man tool?

If you're a macho dude - inclined to whistle show tunes in the shower - don't worry about being a closet homo!
According to Neil Patrick Harris - by way of a show-topping musical sketch on an annual award-show last night - the "Tony" celebrations (and Broadway musicals) are not just for gays!
Notwithstanding - judging by the number of actors (and other creative types working behind-the-scenes on the theatrical front) who thanked their male lovers last night for standing behind them (!) - there are obviously a handful of performers in the biz who are definitely light in the loafers.
In today's open-minded "sexually-liberated" society, who cares, eh?
Meanwhile, the cast of the "BOOK OF MORMON" were ecstatic over their big sweep last night.
The original musical nabbed 9 Tony Awards which included nods from the American Theatre Wing for the "Best Musical", "Best Book", and "Best Direction".
At the near-close of the night's festivities, Chris Rock mused that the prize for "The Book of Mormon" (created by the talented team at South Park) was a given.
"It's kind-of-like dating a hooker. At the end of the night, you know you're going to get laid," he quipped, as the rapt audience roared with gales of laughter.
"War Horse" - a project where the actors facilitated puppets (and a dollop or two of dazzling special effects) to weave a captivating tale for the stage - also walked away with a fistful of coveted statues.
Revivals also fared well this year at the Tony Awards.
"The Normal Heart", for example, scored with 3 nods.
There were a number of highlights throughout the entertaining two-hour broadcast worth mentioning as well.
A sketch with Hugh Jackman and Neil Patrick Harris - where the two actors scrambled to best each other on stage with the help of a handful of memorable hits from successful Broadway Musicals of the past - was a stand-out segment featuring some of the best one-liners of the night.
In one pensive moment, Bono took the stage to promote the musical - Spiderman - which he penned music for.
"How come there weren't any nominations for Spidey," he wondered aloud, as the theatre rippled with spontaneous laughter below the floodlights.
"We didn't make the entry deadline," his partner-in-crime fessed up without blinking-an-eye.
"Well, I feel humbled to be here, anyway" Bono quipped.
"You do humble, well," his pal shot back.
Actually, a ballad from the show that was performed on stage a short while later, showed a lot of potential.
I expect that if top-notch performers record the tune - with the Pop Charts in mind - that it will soar to great success (especially in respect to sales).
The night was not without mishap, though.
At one point, Brook Shields - who looked stunning by the way - tripped over her words at the podium.
"Although I do eight shows a week on stage live, no problem, I can't read a teleprompter," she giggled.
Then, there was a slip of the tongue - at which point - the Network stepped in.
"OMG," Shields exclaimed in so many words (as she covered her mouth in shock), "I guess I'm going to be bleeped!"
One nominee darted up to the stage when her named was announced and attempted to offer up an appropriate heartfelt speech.
But, the "Best Actress in a Featured Role in a Musical" - Nikki M. James - ended up stumbling for words as she became overcome with emotion.
"I was going to write a speech in the event I won, but I felt so silly," James confided to the sympathetic audience.
Things got a lot worse when the orchestra struck up a cue signalling her designated time on stage was up.
But, the rising star was quite adamant about her intentions, which went totally against the grain.
"I'm not getting off the stage," she lamented.
Ah, what followed, was so painful to watch.
Where is the hook when you truly need it?
By the by, when Paul Shaffer appeared on stage to introduce the cast of "Priscilla, Queen of the Desert", the audience went wild when the performers broke into song.
"It's Raining Men," they belted out loudly, as they strutted across the stage in wild fanciful outfits that delighted the packed house.
What an adrenalin rush!
Personally, I thought that one of the creative forces behind the "BOOK OF MORMON" was the best-dressed male in the room.
The handsome dude boldly teamed a black sparkly dress shirt (featuring a high collar) with a dark suit and dress shoes.
A fashion plate, alright.
In contrast, Tyne Daly sauntered out in what appeared to be an old bargain-basement curtain held together with a few unsightly bandages that criss-crossed her flabby silhouette.
Where were the Fashion Police when 'ya needed 'em?
On the other hand, Christie Brinkley dazzled in a low-cut pristine blue frock, which suited her to a "t".
Her bubbly charismatic on-stage persona spoke volumes and literally lit up the room!
"Anything Goes" - a perennial favorite - also won a couple of trinkets not surprisingly.
Unfortunately, Daniel Radcliffe sadly proved that he is not a triple threat.
The kid can act and dance - just swell - but the truth of the matter is that he lacks a stage voice (when it comes to belting out tunes, that is).
Radcliffe's warbling was breathy, weak, and not very impressive.
Stick to the fantasy flicks (or return engagements of Equus) eh, Daniel?
Otherwise, a good night was had by all.
Til next year!
The tell-tale sight of idle teens gone blotto on the Vegas strip after-hours may become an unruly phenomenon of the past now that Officials have given Law Enforcement the nod to enforce a curfew to take effect immediately in "Sin" City.
During the weekdays, teens - 18 and under - will only be permitted to cruise the boulevard after 10 p.m. if there is a consenting adult (family member and/or friend) or parent in tow!
On Friday and Saturday nights the curfew has been set at 9 p.m.
Which begs two questions.
Will you know where your kids are after-hours during the week in the glitzy environs of the desert oasis when they get-down and party-hearty?
For starters, if they are on the Las Vegas strip alone after curfew, they may end up at the local lock-up downtown.
And, the shocked rebels may find themselves charged with a misdemeanor
Meanwhile, Civil Rights Activists are shaking their heads in disbelief and wondering aloud.

Every since Kate Middleton was thrust into the glare of the spotlight on the heels of the announcement of her initial engagement to Prince William, fashionistas around the globe have been hungry for the Royal Style as seen through the chic eyes of Her Royal Highness.
While some critic focused on the pretty bride's weight up to the 11th hour (obviously Ms. Middleton was slimming to avoid the ring snafu which eventually unfolded anyway in front of the prying eyes of an intrusive press bent on pleasing their loyal frenzied subscribers) others were inclined to scrutinize every delicious detail of her elegant wardrobe selections.
It was only a given - that in due time - a phrase would be coined to designate the chosen few!
According to a titillated press in jolly Old England - across the big pond - Royal Fashion Watchers are now known as Copy-Kates!
