    This bizarre and potentially ruinous event unfolded late Thursday night and early Friday morning at Mandalay Bay. Popper was in town, in part, to attend the “One Night for One Drop†Cirque du Soleil show at MJ One Theater. As Popper described in my conversation with him (and his account matches what was reported in UURL’s Vegas DeLuxe column), he arrived Thursday night, had a drink at a hotel bar and walked onto an elevator with a woman he’d met on the property. What he remembers next is regaining consciousness but disoriented, the apparent victim of a roofie dose in his drink.
    Popper soon realized that he was missing his wallet, $2,500 in cash, credit cards and a Rolex Presidential watch valued at $19,500 (as he noted, he was looking at a less-expensive Rolex model anyway, but still, the lost timepiece was a huge value). His connection to Las Vegas is that he is managed by Seth Yudof, founder of UD Factory, who also was at “One Night for One Drop.â€
    When asked for a report of the incident involving Popper, Metro Police today said only that Metro officers responded to a grand larceny call from the 3900 block of Las Vegas Boulevard at 8:36 a.m. Friday and that the incident is an “ongoing investigation.†(Mandalay Bay’s address is 3950 Las Vegas Boulevard South). Popper reportedly did file a report to those Metro officers but was not treated by any medical personnel on site or at any Las Vegas hospitals.
    As Popper said, when you are roofied, you just sort of inherently know it. Hopefully he’ll have his stuff returned and the episode will serve as yet another reminder to be careful with those cocktails, kids.

    If his bung hole was violated it might have been this guy in drag.
