Lesbians Take Over Sin City For Dinah Vegas
Dinah Vegas set Sin City on fire with thousands of lesbians hitting the Strip from Apr. 25-28 for sizzling hot dance parties, afternoons by the Flamingo Pool, high-stakes poker, a White Party and a closing tea dance. Hosted by Girl Bar and Truck Stop Girlz, this year’s Dinah was bigger than ever, living up to its moniker as "The Greatest Women’s Weekend in the World."
"Time and again I’ve been asked what made Dinah Vegas such a huge success last year, and my answer is always the same: every venue and space provides a completely new and unparalleled experience that only Sin City can offer," said Dinah Vegas Founder Sandy Sachs. "There is truly nothing like it on the planet for women and it’s where the party never stops -- there are no last calls."
Las Vegas is a place that people visit to indulge in their wildest fantasies, whether that means being tied up and ravished by a duo of busty women, going skydiving, driving a race car at top speeds, hitting the jackpot or just walking down the strip sipping from a strawberry daiquiri that stands taller than a first grader.
Just a few minutes into my five-day stay at the luxe and centrally located Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino, (the official hotel of Dinah) I had been offered the chance to shoot a machine gun in the desert, spend the evening with a "hot-ass escort" and enjoy a free limo ride to a seedy strip club. I saw three Latino Elvis impersonators, a seven-foot-tall Chewbacca and the worst Stevie Wonder impersonator ever.
And although I couldn’t escape my feminist guilt over the objectification of women, I was not immune to the allure of a city full of topless ladies. Las Vegas has a plethora of strip joints, dancers and ladies of the night, but on the slightly more artistic end of things, there are also elaborately staged burlesque shows to enjoy.
I attended a performance of "Jubilee!" at Bally’s one evening, and was struck by two things: first, that Japanese tourists really dig showgirls; and second, that every one of the more than 50 women in the show had absolutely perfect, natural breasts.
The cast of "Jubilee!" performed seven numbers in their 90-minute show, including the non-topless "Titanic" and Fred and Ginger homages, but also more sensual showgirl numbers like the famous red feather dance, and a very elaborate Samson and Delilah skit with amazing mechanized set pieces.
Having been to Michigan Womyn’s Music Fest, I am no stranger to a sea of bare bosoms. But these perfectly-shaped, Hershey Kiss-nippled breasts were a world away from those hairy-pitted dykey dugs. Some fun facts about the show: dancers have to re-audition every six months, the heaviest headdress weighs 22 lbs. and about 4,2000 lbs. of dry ice is used in each performance.
All these tits make a girl hungry, and Vegas is the perfect place to indulge. The absolute culinary highlight of my stay was a perfectly prepared, bone-in ribeye from Gordon Ramsey Steak at the Paris Las Vegas. The restaurant is easy to find; just follow the scale replica of the Eiffel Tour, cut through the casino and prepare to be wowed. From the extensive wine list and tasty cocktails to the sides of truffled mac and cheese and creamed spinach, every bite was sinfully delicious.
Chef Christina Wilson took a moment from her breakneck pace expediting orders to say hello. She landed this coveted position after winning the TV cooking reality show, "Hell’s Kitchen," and judging by the cuisine that evening, we have all ended up winners.
The French bistro Mon Ami Gabi, also located in the Paris Las Vegas, is an ideal location for a tasty brunch. Featuring a deep balcony set close to the sidewalk, this is an ideal location for both people watching, and enjoying the regular eruptions of the famed fountains at the Bellagio Hotel, directly across the street. Think of it as urban whale-watching.
