I’m baaaaack!

Did you miss me?  No I thought not! Anyway Vegas was fabulous, the epitome of luxury, even when you’re not doing anything remotely BAD ASS, it still feels like you’re the naughtiest person on the planet for being there.  Although Mr Weiss and I might have been the only creatures lurking around that DID NOT, I repeat DID NOT, do any gambling.  Oh just settle down, there are other things to do there, and in fact the entire reason we went was because of this man, which we had tickets to see at the very fabulous Coliseum within Ceasar’s Palace.

The show was truly the best musical experience I have had in my life and will go down forever as a spectacular night to remember.  This now 76 year old, humble, extremely talented man, played for over 3 hours and should bring the entire music industry to shame with its over hyped, over stuffed, self promoting behavior.  Mr Weiss and I could not believe we were fortunate enough to witness what is most likely to be his last tour and first in 15 years. Ever.

So whilst there was no gambling out of my pockets, there was plenty of poolside lounging, people watching, it’s an extremely fascinating place for this… the cast of characters unyielding.  Plenty of photo opportunities, great food, the ridiculous and sometimes spectacular visual displays outside various casinos.  The Bellagio fountain extravaganza is definitely not one to be missed and what looked to be an elaborate pirate re enactment at Treasure Island, which we could see nightly from our perch at the Wynn hotel.  Totally recommended to stay there, big luxurious rooms and “the best buffet in Vegas”,  not that I’m some sort of buffet expert or anything but it was REALLY REALLY good.  On our last day we took a trip on out to the remarkable Hoover Dam, which is only about 45 mins away from Sin City. And that was our 4 day Vegas extravaganza. 100% recommended to those who haven’t been yet… I wouldn’t want to live there but visiting sure is fun.
