What’s cooler than a whirlwind all-expenses trip to Vegas on a chartered JetBlue party plane that welcomes you with a sick gift bag, plus a delicious chicken-and-guacamole sandwich? Why, one that includes a surprise visit to Rochester and three fun-filled extra hours of airplane time, of course! I’m referring to this weekend’s Thrillist JetVegas 36-hour sojourn to Vegas for an overnight at the Mirage, two semiprivate parties, many free drinks, and as much money as you could lose at the casino. Of course, what happens in Vegas is far less likely to stay in Vegas when you go with a planeload of people, and that plane includes bloggers (FishbowlNY, Gawker, HuffPo), TV types (Fox, NY1, ABC), and print hacks (New York Daily News, Time Out New York, and/or Star, depending on what Julia Allison was doing there, other than flashing nipple. But we’ll get to that).
