in the U.S. Scheduled festivities at The Palms included an art show featuring
work from prominent tattooers and other artists, an 11-course vegetarian meal,
and the premiere of the film, Vicktory to the Underdog. Dinner was prepared by
New York City chef Mike Perazzo and some of Sin City's top chefs including Gino
Bernardo, Barry Dakake, Rick Moonen, Joe Elevado and Kerry Simon.

film star Tera Patrick, who was "assisted" by the notorious Heckles
and Twitch. The art on display went to the highest bidder.

movie's director Brandon Bond. The film takes an in-depth look at efforts to
rescue pit bulls, particilarly Michael Vick's fighting dogs. Rather than
focusing on the dog fighting problem, the movie sheds light on solutions for
all underdogs-tattoo people, pitbulls, parolees, and others. Among the cast
were Debbie Trejo, Michael Berryman, Pixie Acia, and Donald Logue.
the movie, everyone relocated to the House of Blues in the Mandalay Bay Casino
for the after party and concert featuring music icon Evan Seinfeld, plus Sick
of it All, Madball, Spyderz, and ToeTag. When all the fun was over, Villa Lobos
was presented with a hefty check, making the great Pit Ball a huge success.
