Harley-Davidson Holiday Party

They say that the weekend before Christmas is the biggest Holiday/Winter/Christmas (whatever you want to call it) party of the year and my husband's work place was one of them. I could tell because the mall was crazy with shoppers looking for dresses and shoes, including me. Luckily I already had a dress and finally found the perfect pair of shoes to go with it. Before we left for the party, we had to take a photo next to our Christmas tree. It is a special tree this year because it is potted and we plan to plant it after the holidays.

Soon we found ourselves at the Harley-Davidson Cafe on the Las Vegas Strip, where the party was held at the previous year (photos here). This will most likely be the last year the company will have a gathering at that location because we heard the cafe will be torn down to build something bigger and better on the prime piece of real estate on which the cafe currently stands.

There were quite a few more people at the party this year than the last which was nice to see. The store where my husband works was purchased by a new owner and split from the other two Harley-Davidson stores so we have separate holiday parties. A couple years before, the festivities was at the Hard Rock Cafe and it was packed to the hilt.

I didn't get a chance to take a photo of my meal: prime rib with green beans, rice and beans, scalloped potatoes, garden salad, and rolls. I actually wasn't in the mood to take photos this year which everyone at the party thought was so unlike me and so my reputation for shooting off my camera fell down a notch...LOL. Some people left their cameras at home because they know I would have all the pics! I do believe my photo taking addiction has rubbed off on my husband who is more than happy to step on the other side of the camera.

Click the slide show below to see more photos from the party (besides just us) and the Yellow Brick Road concert we went to after the holiday party.

The Yellow Brick Road is a cover band but they sound just like the original bands from Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, The Who, Queen, Rush, Journey to popular songs of today (changing tones and musical styles is hard to do). They were very entertaining to watch. The people that came out onto the dance floor were even more fun to watch...LOL. Hey, at least they were enjoying themselves like we did this past Saturday. It has been a while since we went to bed at 2 a.m. (I know, we're a couple of old farts!)
