It was the middle of the week and I needed some entertainment. So I thought, what better place to get entertained than beautiful Pleasure Island.

I was kind of hoping to see the Andre Caram Band out there tonight....or parts of the band anyway. But I got two singers instead; one singing soft rock songs such as Hotel California and the other playing some kind of Australian wind instrument. Decent crowd watching, taking advantage of the new lounge furniture while the living statues performed over in front of Soundstage.
Laffers Cantina was doing a brisk business and inside was a nice surprise. It seems that I usually spot John (Mannequins) or Amy (8TRAX) working there but this time Jennifer (8TRAX) was tending the bar. Had not seen her out there since the Pleasure Island Reunion last September. Inside Motion I spotted two CM's moving things about, apparently getting ready for another banquet event.
New to the Island is this magician, occupying space between RRBC and Sosa Cigars. What I did not know when I snapped the upper left photo was I caught him at the very moment he was snatching the boy's wristwatch of his arm. It was not until the end of the routine a few minutes later that he revealed that he not only had the boy's watch, but the boy's father's wallet!
Meanwhile, while I did not get to witness it tonight, dancing has returned to Pleasure Island! See the video above, taken last week and provided to the Blog by one of our loyal readers. I do find it ironic that the singer from Nova Era is singing Bad Girls, a song that is hardly family-friendly. But if PI is headed back to the adults, we can handle it!
