Welcome to MyVegasObsession.com!  This is where I write about my Las Vegas experiences so that you can better plan your own Vegas adventure!


Hi.  I'm Michael B and I love Las Vegas!  I mean I really LOVE Las Vegas!!!  You might even say I'm obsessed!

Las Vegas. Vegas, Baby! Sin City. Glitter Gulch. My friend Maureen and I like to call it “Veg-AH!” Call it what you will, Las Vegas is my escape. Some people run away to the beach, some to the woods, others to the mountains. I run away to Las Vegas!

As with most obsessions, my love of Vegas began slowly and rather innocently. I had been there once in the late 70’s with my family. I had been there with a former partner in 1995, and I went there in 2002 with my current partner. But then something amazing happened. In 2004, Elton John opened The Red Piano, his fantastic Las Vegas spectacle, at The Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace. When I saw that show, I knew I needed to see it again and again. I did, returning to Las Vegas more than ten times over the next few years, mostly to see Elton.

Along the way, I began to discover many of the things this town has to offer. I started to see many of the Cirque du Soleil shows and headline acts. I began to experiment with different restaurants. I started going to the various hotel spas during the day. Most importantly, I began staying at different hotels - always wanting to try something new. I began to feel more and more comfortable in town, learning my way around and meeting some of the locals. Essentially, I began to love Las Vegas.
