Jim$ Bachelor Party: Running Diary

The 2009 Gentleman of the Year is set to marry the reigning Gentlewoman of the Year on December 4, 2010. This will be the biggest CoG event of the young decade. As with most weddings, the bachelor party had been planned for months and was a highly anticipated event. The gents were giddy even. We got back from Vegas yesterday, and as tradition dictates, we were required to keep a running diary of the trip.
