Our first of 2 Vegas trips for the year is over and I am sad. We had a great time! I would love to share every detail and every picture but I know you would get bored so I'll just share a few tidbits.
It started in the airport bar. Chad, Melissa and I all ordered a pre-flight drink.
Bartender: Would you like an extra shot in your drink for a dollar?
Melissa: Hit me!
We did that twice. And then again, twice, on the plane. Drinks make a flight go faster.
Here are a couple of celebrity sightings:
Mike Myers was in full Austin Powers gear in the seat behind us on the plane.
Here is the limo ride from the airport to the hotel. We made a stop at the ABC store at Planet Hollywood for some booze and some real Coke products.
Here is the first day at the cabana. The cabana was money well spent. It was a great retreat for drinks and lounging. Of course, certain underage people kept using it as a walkway but we survived. We blocked them off a little bit and had fun attempting to be mean to them. The pools at Mandalay Bay are great. They have pools, a lazy river and a wave pool. Now, let's talk about the "wave" pool for a moment. Notice that the word wave is not plural - there is a reason for that. They literally let one wave go at a time. It's not like your normal wave pool where you have wave after wave after wave. It is seriously one wave every 45 seconds or so...weird. The lazy river was fun if you don't mind getting splashed, kicked, and bumped into by kids at every turn. A note to the Mandalay Bay executives: the first and last 2 hours of each day should be kid free at the pools so the adults can enjoy themselves a little more. I'm just sayin...
After drinks there we went to the Venetian for a nice Italian dinner and then across the street to Rhumbar. THEN, me and Chad and Chuck and Melissa went to a bar back at Mandalay Bay called Minus 5....as in minus 5 degrees. Before you go in this bar, they give you a parka, some boots and gloves. Why do they do this you ask? Because EVERYTHING (with the exception of the floor) is made out of ice. That's right - the bar, the walls, the tables, the benches, the glasses - all ICE. It was freezing in there but it was so fun. I don't have any pictures of it because they won't let you take cameras in because your camera will freeze up.
