Hi! I'm Amy and I'm in Las Vegas! And for a few days in January, BAY is going to be in Las Vegas! And at least a couple of listeners! And a real, live Las Vegas podcaster who talks about actual Las Vegas!* And you should be there, too!

This super quick episode is just an announcement of the big event. We hope you can join us for the fun. Call us at 44-222-96269 or write to us at vggggg@gritstoglitz.com! See you in January!

*He called us affable. In a very non-snarky way.

And does she know about ...? Once again, we started a show without any notes, and Bay didn't even drink a cocktail first (for fear she would keel over asleep if she did)! But we still managed to record a whole podcast, and no ecosystems were harmed! Save us from extroverts, and how's the election going in your neck of the woods? Are we still going to have an infrastructure to podcast with in two weeks? We'll find out! Scandal and mayhem and food! AND! There's a strange man in Amy's spare bedroom. Typical Grits to Glitz, y'all! Call us!!!! 44-222-96269!

Why, Amy, of course! From hanging out with listeners to hanging out with French Bulldog show people, she's been quite the most popular podcaster around! Bay just went out to dinner and then got all cultured and whatnot. It's a party! We even managed to talk about politics. (We've got to stop that!) It's a do-over to keep us on an even keel. Hey! Welcome to our new iHeartRadio listeners! Write to us at socialgadflies@gritstoglitz.com!

Oh, my goodness, food is going missing all over the place! At least we know who ate the Fritos. What about the monkey bread?! This is a typical Grits to Glitz because we talk about a lot of crazy stuff, and we talk about food a lot. We like food. For instance, other than our keen interest in missing food, we also recap Mediterranean restaurants on both coasts and Asian fusion in Las Vegas. Frenchies galore in Las Vegas! Brace yourself for *those* kisses! Music! Culture! Gossip! It's all here. Call us! 44-222-96269!!!

Do we ever have travel plans! Well, Bay does. She's going to visit Amy in Las Vegas! And it's all we can talk about! And Hollywood feuds and messy stores and stuff! Seriously, it's really very hard to write notes about such an eclectic group of topics. Give it a listen, and let us know what you feel we left out. (Bay's boss thinks Grits to Glitz should be reviewing "Stranger Things." Vote today!) Call us! 44-222-96269!

What are we gonna do for the next ten years? Um, party hearty, people! We're finally back with our 300th episode, and it might be one for the ages! Between the injury report and tech purchases, handy things and handsy things (ahem, Absinthe!), magic shows and political rallies, we found time to talk about kids going to college and unkind dog groomers. Yeah, it was that kind of show! So email us! amy@gritstoglitz.com or bay@gritstoglitz.com!!

Yes, but it's not nearly as distracting as the cat! Listen as Amy and Bay bounce from topic to off-topic and back again! We talk about stuff to see and do in Sacramento, which leads to an interesting bit about Tower Records and the documentary "All Things Must Pass." Bay had a frog for an afternoon! She didn't kiss it. It could still be someone's prince! Politics! Smart locks! Booze, booze, and more booze! It's that kind of podcast. Call us! 44-222-96269! (HEY!)

 
- Tower Records once towered!
- WHAT IS THAT T DOING TO THAT P?!?!

Bay and Amy wax rhapsodic about homegrown tomatoes -- even those purchased at the farmer's market -- and lots of other things, like: fixing the voice mail (thx, Cap't Scott!), grocery store booze, booze (spiced rum, lime liqueur, etc.), popular puppy dogs, places we want to visit, things we'll do someday, and the usual assortment of bunny trails. It's an extra episode, y'all! Can we make it to 300 before our 10th anniversary?! amy@gritstoglitz.com or bay@gritstoglitz.com!

Don't answer that; it's a trap! This week's episode is a little long and rambly -- hey! we heard that! and yes, they are mostly long and rambling -- but it's kind of fun. Bay is having fits planning her September trip to Las Vegas; Amy's beloved Lana vetoes a luxurious potty experience; smart phone video games are dissected disturbingly thoroughly, and we follow up on our Tennessee movie madness with a forlorn footnote. Retread Text Theatre makes a comeback with major calendar action!!! CALL US!!! 44-222-96269!!!

- Shall We Date (not a Q, but a game... and kinda creepy!)
- Pretty La Reve at the Wynn in Las Vegas
- Bay's Neko Atsume needs to reset
- Amy's gone criminal with Kleptocats!
- Who else KILLED with CARMAGGEDON?!
