Live from Las Vegas!

With this post I am officially out of retirement. That’s right, Julie Gives Good Interview is back. Well, not back to give good interviews, because I didn’t remember to bring a tape recorder, but back to write about our trip and actually use the journalism degree my parents paid for. Forgive me for any misspellings and/or run-on sentences - it is Las Vegas and I'm nursing a bit of a Red Bull and Grey Goose induced hangover.

Speaking of Red Bull, did you guys know that the only people allowed to wear anything with a Red Bull logo on it are their athletes? How cool is that?

The meet and greet yesterday was a cool experience, especially to see all the details that go into hosting such a large event. I made Bryan do all the real journalism - there was no way I was walking up that ramp to take a photo! It was scary enough just standing at the bottom. I am really looking forward to tonight though. I was so stoked to hear that Robbie made it 350 in practice.

After the meet and greet we were invited to to Bruzio's, a restaurant right here in the Rio, for a media dinner. If you ever stay here, eat there. The food was amazing and the drinks were smooth! We got to hang out and chat with Ryan Cropley from the Mulisha, Jordan from Red Bull and we also met an assistant editor from Maxim named Jesse. This "experiment" sure is getting some mainstream media coverage. And I'm here to watch it live!

After dinner we were invited to the VooDoo Lounge patio for a Red Bull party. When Red Bull does something, they really do it right! Bottle service with Grey Goose and Red Bull at a club overlooking the strip? I don't think it gets any better. Here are some photos from our night.

Happy New Year to everyone!

This is the view of the ramps from the VooDoo Lounge. I know you can't really see them, but they're there!

We were hanging out high above the Strip.

I wonder if Ryan Cropley will like this photo?

We'll see what Jesse from Maxim thinks of the show.

Bryan and Julie are reporting live from Las Vegas!

Jordan from Red Bull never stops working!

Chris Tedesco trades his camera for a Red Bull and vodka.

Kramer: Duh, everyone knows that!

Click on that random crowd shot and check out the size of that blond girl's drink! It's as big as her head.

Bad Billy, you're going to pay for that comment!

Not everyone is as smart AS you Billy! I didn't know that either.
