At some point during prepubescent life, you had a vivid, fantastical dream.
There were scantily clad women splashing around in a pool filled with stripper poles. There was beer. Lots and lots of beer. And just when you thought things couldn't get any more bizarre, Snoop Dogg appeared.
Pinch yourself: that dream is a reality. Welcome to Labor Day weekend in Vegas.
