What Happens In Vegas . . .

Gets posted on this blog.

  1. We arrived at 10:30 pm PST on Friday and I went to bed at 8am on Saturday.

  2. Before going to bed, Andy ate this:Photobucket

  3. That's bacon waffles with fried chicken.

  4. In Vegas, they serve bacon waffles with fried chicken for breakfast.

  5. I continued my streak of randomly running into good friends in random cities. Molly was up from Phoenix for Friday night only so we shared $2 burgers at midnight.

  6. I woke up on Saturday morning . . . errr, Saturday afternoon to Troy drinking a wine cooler.

  7. Apparently the dress code for men in Vegas is a douchey graphic t-shirt and sunglasses indoors. Andy and his flaming stallion t-shirt did not get that memo.

  8. This slot machine was calling my name:

  9. The Wild Wild West was described as a truck stop where men wear overalls without shirts underneath. I will agree with this description, and also tell you that this was one of my favorite places on Earth.

  10. Always split aces and eights. Unless you're at the Las Vegas Club and want your money to last you more than 2 hands.

  11. O'Shea's is the official World Series of Beer Pong location:

  12. Team Jandy defeated Team Proctor at beer pong.

  13. Twice.

  14. Before Noon.

  15. Betty's Diner in the Imperial Palace will not serve you ice cream at breakfast for some inexplicable reason. I still ate a lot of ice cream in Vegas. Because it's my vacation and I do what I want.

  16. A suspicious looking item will get your carry-on bag checked by airport security. Airport security will laugh when the discover that item is 3 decks of cards wrapped in a rubberband inside of a shoe.

  17. Cirque del Soleil's O was incredible, but I have no idea what the storyline was. Something about carnies, brides and clowns that fly through the air and dive into pools of water from ridiculous heights.

  18. Andy, Rachel and Troy had hot hands rolling the dice at Bill's Saloon and won a lot of people a lot of money at the craps table.

  19. When we left Bill's in the morning, there was a group of drunk middle aged men that had been up all night and would chant "Ole! Ole! Ole! Ole!" every time they won a hand of blackjack. Somehow, they were still there and still chanting when we returned 6 hours later.

  20. The Vegas shops have classy items for sale. Like this picture of a tiger cub holding the Earth with the sun rising behind him: Photobucket

  21. $5 on MSU basketball will not make you a winner, but $5 on team USA hockey will.
Thank you, Vegas, for an amazing time and for letting us break even so that we can still make the mortgage payment this month.

glad you had fun! I'm so jealous you saw "O"... it wasn't showing the night we went to see a show.

Heather said...

oh... and love the slot machine.

This post is great. Where in your house will you be putting the cub picture?

Keri said...

I think that breakfast that Andy ate should probably be served at Fifth Third Ballpark.

Sounds like you had a fun and entertaining trip!

Kara said...
