With everything it has to offer, it’s no wonder Tina and I are in love with Las Vegas. With this trip being our fourth (and final) trip this year, I can see why our friends like to tease us about Vegas being our “second home.” There’s just something about Vegas that is so relaxing, exciting, and amazing at the same time!
Starting my day early on Saturday, I headed over to my dentist appointment. They had to numb half of my mouth… which made me realize that going to the dentist before going to Vegas was probably not one of my smartest ideas. Tina and I grabbed some pho for lunch at Pho Y 1 before our flight. Thank goodness pho doesn’t require much chewing… and the numbness wore off while I was eating!
But lo and behold, when we landed and got on the tram, he was standing behind us! Fangirl-ed all the way back to the hotel, of course. (The boys judged me for mentioning him being on Dancing with the Stars before his famous football career. What can I say… he was pretty awesome on Dancing with the Stars, hah.) Celebrity sighting a few minutes after we landed in Vegas – we knew this was going to be the best trip ever!
We met up with Qui at the hotel, and then we all headed to Gordon Ramsay BurGR. The line here is always ridiculous… but it’s a good thing they text you when your table is ready!
After Ronald landed, we told him to meet us at the hotel. When we got to our floor, he was no where to be found. We called him to tell him we were back, and he came out of the suite on our floor. That guy was partying with this bachelor party already, lol! Anything goes in Vegas… We chilled in the hotel room for a bit, and a pillow fight happened… (Pretty sure Qui won.)
While we were waiting for taxis, we ended up sharing a limo with these British guys to go to XS. We were actually pretty surprised that the two Asian guys (one not pictured) had the accents, too. (I mean, you can basically be whoever you want to be in Vegas aka fake accents and stuff, right?)
Sunday morning, we headed to Avenue 24 for some breakfast food since it was in our hotel. Sometimes, convenience is key!
Even in Vegas, Sundays are for football. Now, I normally do not gamble/place bets, but when I do, I bet on the Niners. We all put in $100 for the Niners, and we headed to a bar to watch the game. Having money on the line makes watching the game so much more intense.
At the bar, we met this couple from SF. The husband was a Niners fan and the wifey was a Packers fan (boo). They were so much fun to watch the game with!
It’s a good thing everyone in our group loves oysters, cause that’s what we got at Oyster Bar. I really like trying new restaurants, and Vegas has plenty of restaurants to try. The wait for this restaurant is ridiculous (more ridiculous than the wait at BurGR!). With only 17ish seats at the bar, it’s no wonder we had to wait an hour to get seated. And let me tell you, dancing in heels for hours the night before does not mix well with standing in line for an hour. Ouch!
We come into your heart when you’re high on love
We come into your mind when you feel a rush
We come into your soul when your guide is gone
We come into your smile when you want some fun
The next morning, we headed over to Wicked Spoon for lunch since we heard great things about this place and we wanted to get buffet before we leave.
Leaving Vegas is always so bittersweet. Until next time…
