Las Vegas

Viva Las Vegas – Part 1

After leaving the Grand Canyon we drove to Las Vegas which was a lot less scenic drive compared to previous days. We stopped for lunch at In-n-Out burger to tick that off my list as I somehow had never had it yet, and it was okay but I think I’m definitely much more of a Shake Shack girl. We arrived into Vegas a little too early to check in so we went to the North Outlet Mall where they were having massive Labour Day sales. I got three pairs of Nikes for the price of one!

We were staying at the Flamingo, and once it was time to check in they said the only king rooms available were smoking which we didn’t want so we were changed to a smaller room, but upgraded the top floor to make up for the inconvenience. It meant that we got a spectacular view from the 28th floor across to Caesars Palace and the Bellagio fountains. For dinner we went to the Cheesecake Factory as we knew it would be the last time we could on this trip, and then walked around looking in some gift shops and played some of the poker machines on the ground floor.

The next day we got breakfast at Hash House a Go Go in the Linq which was really fresh and delicious, then we walked around the Linq casino and played some blackjack before getting coffees. The rest of the morning was spent wandering through various shops and casinos and playing Craps which we had learned to play last time we were in Vegas. We stopped in at the Miracle Mile Shopping Mall which we had missed last time, and I thought the robotic bartender was so futuristic! I also loved the “thunderstorm” that happens in the middle of the shops.

For lunch we had reservations at David Chang’s Momofuku in the Cosmopolitan, which was an amazing experience I wrote about here. We spent the afternoon talking along the strip to New York New York and back, and I found the cupcake ATM which was under maintenance! I had been to the one in Nashville earlier on the trip which was also under maintenance so I would not be getting any atm cupcakes this trip.

In the evening we went to the Mirage to watch the Cirque Du Soleil Beatles Love Show. I’m not a Beatles superfan by any means but it was a really awesome show, there are performers coming in from every angle and floating screens that creates an intriguing atmosphere.
