We got back from our Vegas trip at about 6:30 last night. It was a long day and we were happy to be home. It was so great to have a couple of days just for us! I wish we could do that more often.
I am the crappiest blogger ever though. I don't think I took even one picture while we were there. Can you believe it? I know...I'm sorry. We did have our picture taken at dinner one night, so, when Dave can figure out what the deal is with my scanner, I'll post it. And...as soon as Beth gets home, I can post some of the pics from her wedding! The wedding was very nice, but very windy. I was totally afraid that my clip on hair would blow off and land in her dad's lap! LOL
The Phantom was AWESOME! Dave had only ever seen the movie, so this was new for him. He really loved it! Me too!
Our room at the Riviera was ok, but not great. They told us when we checked in that we could upgrade to a suite for an additional $70 a night, but I'm WAY too cheap for that. So, we ended up with a very pinkish 80's room. Oh well.
Ok...does anyone remember when Vegas used to be a cheap vacation? Cheap food...cheap entertainment? Yeah...not anymore. After Phantom, we went back to our hotel and we hadn't eaten yet, so we went to their little Italian place. We about fell over. I ended up paying $20 for a little plate of fettuccine alfredo...plain...no chicken, no shrimp. And, you had to pay extra for salad...so... no salad. Dave had a small piece of $20 lasagna. Then, the next morning, we did the breakfast buffet, but by the time we got there, it was a "champagne brunch". $15. And the food sucked. Seriously...bland, stale, crunchy...and not in a good way. (And we don't drink...at all...so the champagne was useless to us.) Dave was miffed! What happened to the $5.99 prime rib? 99 cent shrimp cocktail? We were thinking of going to Madame Toussaud's Wax Museum at the Venetian. $25 each. Bend over.
Anyway...we're home. The only gambling that was done was by me. I wasted $1 in a penny slot machine while I waited for Dave to get out of the bathroom. lol Good times!
