On Michael’s birthday, Becca, Michael and I made the 4-hour drive to Las Vegas from Los Angeles, CA. We drove through barren lands to reach the large city. We had made plans to meet in Vegas back in the spring or something, and our friends Priscilla, Amy, Chris and Luke met up with us. That evening, we celebrated Priscilla’s and Michael’s birthdays at Buddy V’s Restaurant. We all split a hotel room at Luxor, and it worked out pretty well.
After dinner we tried going to Tryst nightclub at Wynn, but we got turned down because of one person’s improper shoes. We made the executive decision to head to Senior Frogs instead, as it is definitely more casual. It turned out to be a fun night.
The next morning, Amy, Becca and I went to our spa appointments at Excalibur. It was my first time getting a facial and a massage (in the States), so I was looking forward to it. Although we did have rather early appointments. It all worked out really well because we got to spend time at the spa (as we made use of all the amenities there).
The boys and Priscilla went to brunch, and then we met up with Priscilla to get ready for our girls night out. We figured out a way to get dressed and ready for dinner, a show, and out to a club. We walked about an hour and a half down the strip to Treasure Island, which is where Cirque: Mystere was playing. Kahunaville ended up being our restaurant of choice after the show. Priscilla had the hookup at XS in Encore, where Will.I.Am was the guest DJ. It was so cool because we had to go to another entrance, and got in for free. We also got three complimentary drink tickets!!! Thanks girl. Oh, and guess who randomly showed up…Flavor Flav, so funny! It was such a fun night filled with dancing and girl time, and we stayed up way past our bedtime.
The guys went to the Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay and then to watch Fantasy at Luxor, which is a Strip Tease…ohh la la! They then pretty much gambled all night.
Everyone dispersed the next day, which was Sunday, October 12th. Luke, Amy and Becca took a cab to the airport, and Michael, Priscilla, Chris and I went to lunch at Bucca di Beppo, Italian food, family-style. We got the small lasagna and some garlic bread. We finished it off with the Italian cream cake!
Michael and I managed to find our cache and place our mini Frisbee in the parking garage of Mandalay Bay. It was a very hot and sunny day, and we walked around a bit before leaving for the Grand Canyon in Arizona!
