Last weekend we took a long weekend and made a trip to Las Vegas to take in some of the glitz and glam that only Sin City can provide. We had a great time touring the different hotels, casinos, shopping, and restaurants.
The strip was hopping each of the three days we were there. Most casinos seemed to be packed and the tables were full. Perhaps the Las Vegas recession is on the mend? We enjoy playing blackjack, three card poker and a few of the other table games. However, all the tables we saw were $15 minimum per hand. This makes for some short gambling sessions if you're not on the winning trail.
Luckily there is much more to do in Las Vegas than just gambling. We stayed at the Hard Rockwhere they happened to be filming the upcoming season om MTV's The Real World. It was very interesting to see the camera crews chasing around a bunch of partying kids.
The highlight of the trip had to be our dinner sunday night at Mon Ami Gabiin the Paris Hotel. The food was absolutely outstanding from the bread and salad to the most tender fillet mignon we have ever had. The meal was second only to the atmosphere. We sat out on the patio on a brisk night but were kept very comfortable by the umbrella shaped heaters next to each table. The patio is located directly across the street from The Bellagio where we were able to take in the stunning fountain shows throughout the entire meal. This was a dining experience we won't soon forget!
