Post voiceover libations with the fellas…
Washoe House is rad…

Check out the dollar bills on the ceiling, people have been doing this since mid 1800′s in stage coach days, crazy cool!

We decided we need to leave our mark too!




Saturday aka “GAME DAY”!

The NOS Energy Drink X Keep Drifting Fun stickers are a hit, guys and gals came and asked me for them and I stoked them with the Vegas sticker too for being awesome!!!
These dudes were psyched!

Ryan was psyched on his new NOS Energy Drink Nos Ban’s…
