On the same weekend as Pioneer Day Weekend, my friend Justin came in to participate in the Las Vegas 48-hour Film Festival.  I had off-handedly said that he could stay with me since I happen to have an extra room for guests and storage, mostly storage.  It was so good to see a friend from SLC but it made for a long weekend.  Justin arrived Friday night and calls me and asks if I want to go to a magic show.  I start laughing at him because it reminded me of the cliche pickup lines about magic.  Turns out he was serious.  I can't remember the name of the casino, but it was sketchy.  A lot of the decor reminded me of the Tower of Terror ride at Disneyland.
The show was ok.  There was a magician, a mind reader, and then a juggler.  The juggler was by far the best. The other two acts were quite obvious with their tricks.  After the show, Justin and his posse used the theater for part of their film so I stuck around and watched.  I called it quits around midnight and paid for it the next day because of the drive to the dunes.
Justin was still filming when I got back home around 1:30 AM and left my house the next day around 8 so we didn't have a lot of time to hang out but I'm grateful for the time we did have. He called me by surprised and asked if I wanted to grab some food.  We went to In-N-Out and talked about his adventurous weekend.

His group won 2nd runner up for Best Film!
