As We See It

Vegas drinking games, movie casting rage and other things we’re thinking about

A serious pub crawl calls for some serious Brit-pop.

Game on! How about this for a new Vegas drinking game: Sit at a casino bar and take one drink for every bachelorette veil, barefoot girl and group of guys in matching T-shirts. Then cab it home. -Sarah Feldberg, editor

Love An English couple who married young and divorced almost 50 years ago just tied the knot again, walking down the aisle to Barry White. That’s a spoonful of sugar for my cynical gland. -Erin Ryan, staff writer

Role rage A quick word to everyone losing it over movie casting: These people are actors. They’re paid to pretend to be other people. Why not let them do their jobs? Then, if you’re still furious, vote with your wallets, not your Facebook account. -Ken Miller, associate editor

Long monsoon I never expected to take a Labor Day Weekend trip to Seattle and yet experience identical weather here, there and here again. Enough with the humidity already! -Brock Radke, web & food editor

Drinking music It wasn’t enough that Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright essentially built The World’s End around Primal Scream’s 1990 party anthem, “Loaded.” Its soundtrack reads like a what’s-what of Madchester (Stone Roses, Happy Mondays) and Brit-pop (Pulp, Suede) classics. -Mike Prevatt, nightlife editor
