The Desert Wind Beneath My Wings

Vegas Baby Paris Casino

The little duck above was one of my first rubber ducks. I lived in Vegas at the time so I named her “Vegas Baby” since she appeared in many of my first rubber duck photos. Duckshow was born in Vegas as well, so every time I go back to Vegas I take this little gem of a duck with me. She is very photogenic, don’t ya think?? ;)

So I thought….since it’s been 30 degrees in NYC all month long and not much fun for rubber ducks (or anyone else for that matter)….I’m gonna make the rest of March and April all about Duckshow’s recent adventures in Vegas! Viva Duck Vegas!

Vegas Baby: “Ooh La La! J’adore Las Vegas!”

Viva Duck Vegas!

Just Ducky and Cheese

It’s been so cold out here in NYC that the Duckshow ducks decided to fly south for a little fun in the sun…..and what better place than Las Vegas! Of course there had to be a reunion with Just Ducky who is a native Las Vegas duck and who you will find waddling all over sin city! They even found a couple of new friends at the Toy Shack!


Ducktown Tavern….at Night

We’ve seen Ducktown Tavern during the day. Everytime I go back to Atlantic City, I like to go by and snap some pictures. This time I decided to go at night to get a couple of shots….er photos….of the inside of the place.

Duck crossing sign! Of course! It seems Ducktown has a pretty good softball team as well… they have a championship trophy, too! Go ducks!

James Pond: “I’ll have a martini…..and put it on my bill.”

Duckie Fizz: “Excuse me while I pop the cork off this bottle of “Duck Pérignon! Cheers, Ducktown dears!”

The Wild Wild West, New Jersey

What? I thought the west was won in Texas? Not if you are in Alantic City! The fun thing about casinos is that they can virtually transport you to another time or place. And the Wild Wild West Casino in Atlantic City is the perfect setting for these cowducks! Yeehaw!

Lone Ranger: “It’s Tuesday and I’m ready to hang a foul fowl, ya’ll.”

Wild Bill: “This boardwalk ain’t big enough for the both of us.”

Lone Ranger: “Looks like there’s gonna be a showdown then.”

Wild Bill: “Meet me at the saloon at sundown.”

Lone Ranger: “Guess I’ll ride this here chuckwagon down to the saloon.”

Cue the theme to “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly”……….

Explorer Duck in Venice

It has been a while since Duckshow last spoke of Explorer Duck. She is the traveling duck being hosted in many exciting cities by rubber duck collectors. She has been all over the globe and we here at Duckshow have been following her travels. We were excited to find out that Explorer Duck has recently landed in Venice, Italy! This little duck has spread her wings all over the globe and (like the energizer bunny) just keeps going and going and going! She even hung out with one of the locals (see here)! You can see even more pictures from her adventures in Venice here.

Explorer Duck: “Venice is fantastico and the pizza pie is delizioso! Qua qua!” (That’s ‘quack, quack’ in Italiano ;)

A couple of “Anatra di Gomma’s”

Luigi: “What a nice-a day at-a Caesar’s Palace!”

Giuseppe: “Yes, yes. I’m-a getting a little-a hungry.”

Luigi: “Would you like-a some of my-a spaghetti?”

Giuseppe: “No. I would-a like a pizza pie.”

Giuseppe: “Now this is-a what I’m-a talking about!”

Luigi: “Fantastico!”

Stay tuned next week to see Guiseppe and Luigi’s adventures at San Gennaro in NYC’s little Italy. It will be magnifico!

A Duck Walks into a bar called Ducktown Tavern

Ducktown Tavern! Need I say more?! A fine little establishment with an old Sands Casino Sign hanging on the wall inside. They also have their own Ducktown firetruck that is availabe for rent (I know what I’m doing when I win the lottery ;) ) Someday I want to actually hang out there with the Ducktown locals……but for now, let’s check out the rubber ducks’ Ducktown Tavern adventures. It’s not the first time the ducks have been to Ducktown Tavern. As a matter of fact, they visit every time they are in Atlantic City. After all, what’s not to love about a duck themed tavern?

Cheese Duck: “It’s been too long, Ducktown Tavern! We meet again! I hope it’s Mexican night! I could really use the “Mexican Fiesta Meal” right now! Arrrriba! Ah no, I forgot my sombrero!”

HiYa Duck: “Drinking beer doesn’t make one fat, it makes one lean…..against bars, chairs, tables, and poles.”

James Pond: “I’d like a martini….shaken, not stirred.”

Wild Bill: “They take kindly to ducks. That’s mighty nice.”

James Pond: “Follow the arrow.”

Cowduck: “Don’t mind if I do.”

Paparazzi Duck: “I hope that Ducktown fellow is inside! That’s a money shot!”

And with that the ducks walked into a bar……..

Cowducks on the Boardwalk

What are some little cowpoke ducks gonna do when they hit the Atlantic City Boardwalk? Why don’t we just take ourselves a look:

Wild Bill: “Much Obliged.”

Mosey on into the best buffet this side of the Mississippi.

Wild Bill: “Don’t mind if I do.”

After fueling up at the buffet, Wild Bill gets himself into a few showdowns…..well…sort of…

Wild Bill: “This here Wild West Casino ain’t big enough for the both of us!”

Surf Duck: “I was just wondering how to get to the beach….”

And later on that evening…

Wild Bill: “This here Wild West Casino ain’t big enough for the both of us!”

Chief: “ME BIG CHIEF!”

It looks like feathers are going to fly this time!

The very next day Wild Bill had moseyed on into the Wild Wild West Casino to do a little gambling and a couple of more cowducks found themselves hanging out in front of the Wild Wild West Casino…

Buck Duck: “Looks like another lazy day on the….boardwalk.”

Chuck Duck: “Yup.”

Buck Duck: “Let’s see what’s rustling on the boardwalk.”

Chuck Duck: “Sounds mighty fine, yup.”

Buck and Chuck Ducks know when to hold ‘em and when to fold ‘em….

Buck Duck: “The quickest way to double your money is to fold it over and put it back into your pocket.”

Chuck Duck: “Yup.”

Magic Carpet Ride

Magic Carpet Duckie takes a ride down the boardwalk….

MC Duckie: “Rock the Casbah!”

MC Duckie: “Pass go and collect 200 dollars!”


MC Duckie: “This looks like a good place to call home for the weekend.”

Ducks Just Can’t Get Enough of Atlantic City!

Here are even more scenes from Atlantic City!

Diva Duck: “I’ve been told here in Jersey that the higher the hair, the closer you are to heaven.”

Mardi Gras Marie: “Let the good times….roll the dice! I’m at Showboat Casino!”

Charlie “Ducky” Luciano: “If you have a lot of what people want and can’t get, then you can supply the demand and shovel in the dough.”

And if you think the ducks have had enough adventures, just wait…..they are going back for even more! Stay tuned!
