There was madness in any direction, at any hour. You could strike sparks anywhere. There was a fantastic universal sense that whatever we were doing was right, that we were winning.
And that, I think, was the handle - that sense of inevitable victory over the forces of old and evil. Not in any mean or military sense; we didn't need that. Our energy would simply prevail. We had all the momentum; we were riding the crest of a high and beautiful wave. So now, less than five years later, you can go up on a steep hill in Las Vegas and look west, and with the right kind of eyes you can almost see the high-water mark - that place where the wave finally broke and rolled back.- Raoul Duke, Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas, Hunter S. Thompson
Anything over four days in Las Vegas is excessive, unless you live there of course. The crew and I put the pedal to the metal on our last day and wandered off into the desert to shoot our original inspiration of Hunter S. Thompson Fear & Loathing montage.
The only thing I was missing was my fisherman's hat, which I have since acquired, and I was channeling Raoul Duke like a pro!
We also decided to recreate a scene from 'The Hangover' because you can't go to Vegas and not. (at least I couldn't) So I glamorously climbed out of the trunk in the brazen sun with my heels in hand wearing my delahooke short track suit.
There was no better way to wrap our day of shooting than enjoying a sit down family style dinner at Honey Salt. With it's eclectic decor and award winning owners created a space for foodies to experience gourmet home cooked dishes. Owner Elizabeth Blau gave us the tour of her "second home" and explained how she carried her inspiration from her own kitchen decor and applied it to the restaurants motif. (even explaining that one of the tables is her actual dining room table from home)
As per usual, when I go on the road with my team, see below for our #ehontheroad playlist of the tunes from The Ford Mustang to and from Vegas.
Until next time!
