    Okay
    , this is just for fun, but a guy is going to walk up/down the Vegas Strip on 1/15/2010 with a BYC shirt on.

    In fact, we sent him a BYC Breakfast shirt with 3 BYC bumper stickers stuck to the back! [​IMG] We also gave him some BYC business cards to hand out!

    Check out 1/15 on the calendar here: http://www.stripwalker.com/calendar.html?a=ok&d=1-2010

    The
    guy's name is Dan and he's more than happy to have BYC peeps walk with him... if you can make it we'll send you a free BYC Shirt to wear! [​IMG]

    He'll post a video about BYC and post it on his site and his blog when he's done: http://www.stripwalker.com/blog/

    Should
    be fun!

    Nifty, your title scared me for a second. The word "strip" is a little too close to the word ending in "-er".

    But, carry on. [wheeze wheeze...]

    Ya, this is all good and clean. Maybe BYC will get some good press and new visitors from it.

    Well, that and I like to support really amazing creativity, and I love this idea.

    Nifty - do you realize that the people that pass out cards on the strip are typically passing out cards advertising some of the more unsavory institutions of LV with scantily clothed pics on the cards? Won't people be surprised when they realize that this card is about a different kind of "chick". [​IMG]

    Wow, very cool! If he gets somebody everyday for the next year, he'll make $57,360.00. Not a bad job for the year.

    Yup, I did that math too! Glad we got in on the ground floor... it gets a bit more costly later in the year! [​IMG]

    If it goes well, maybe we'll do another in March (peak chick season). [​IMG]

    Hi everybody,

    Well, tomorrow's the day where I'll be making a video and walking the Strip to promote BYC. It's going to be fun and I'm looking forward to it. I was told that some of you might meet me down there to do the walk... the weather here in Vegas is getting a little surly (wind/rain/storm front), but I will still be out there. If it's absolutely nuts weather-wise, I'll just keep my route mostly indoors. Anyhow, if any of you decide to show up, meet me in front of the Starbucks at the Fashion Show Mall -- the one outside, on LVBLVD, facing the Wynn at noon sharp. It is roughly 8 mile walk round trip and takes me around 3 hours. I don't expect you to walk the entire length with me, so if you just wanted to do parts of it that's fine by me. You might want to stop at, say, Ceasar's Palace and wait for me/us to come back around, and then you could meet up on the other side. Whatever you feel like doing is fine with me. This is all for fun, so I just want to make sure that everybody is enjoying themselves. A quick note on the handing out cards thing: due to the "snappers" who hand out the girly cards, as well as folks handing out flyers for nightclubs, etc. there is a real collective disdain among the tourists for people trying to hand stuff out. My policy now is that I only hand things out to people who approach me (it happens!). I tell you this because I don't want you to be surprised if you still have a stack of cards in your hand when you're done.

    Ok, that's all I can think of. Feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions or concerns. [email protected]

    Dan, thanks for visiting and posting!

    Hopefully the weather will play nice. If not, maybe you can swing us a discount for an additional day in a month or so! [​IMG]

    It should be lots of fun for all.

    Cheers!

    Well, there goes my date for guessing the 50,000 target number..... Oh well, I sure wish I could meet everyone down there and do the "strip" teaser with you! Have fun whoever makes it there. [​IMG]
