We will discuss current and former craftsmen and designers and how important it is that Blenko and West Virginia glass be appreciated and valued by the younger generation.

The Rat Pack is Back in Vegas!

The Dali Lama is often given credit for saying: " If you can recognize illusion as illusion it dissolves. The recognition of illusion is also its ending."

The Rat Pack Is Back - This show was a blast! - the illusion was not broken. The group performed at the Copa room of the Plaza Hotel and Casino in historical downtown Vegas We opted for the Dinner - ticket, to have the old Las Vegas show experience. If you like music from the Big Band era this is the show for you. Not only are the performers vocal impersinations spot on, but the show is full of classic jokes and gags that will make you feel you are really watching Frank, Dean and Sammy.

( No Visible BLENKO GLASS at the Plaza, however, during the era of Sinatra, Martin and Davis art deco styled BLENKO GLASS could be found in the finest department stores.)

I love that wise quote which holds truth about the illusion so true.. your constant thought and search for Blenko in LAS during vacation time speaks so much about your passion for Blenko. Its really hard to imagine someone with that much of dedication..
