Vegas Getaway

A few weeks ago, my sister and I decided to go away for a few days. A couple years ago we spent a weekend in Vegas and visited the Titanic exhibit (awesome and still at the Luxor) and the Liberace museum (closed, which is a shame). This year, I found great fares through Spirit Airlines and an awesome deal at the Excalibur.

In about 48 hours, we:

  • Ate at Lynrd Skynrd's Bar.  If you like whiskey, order the julep.  It's a glass full of Maker's Mark, with a few mint leaves.  
  • Had a manicure / pedicure
  • Played slots
  • Ate at Hubert Keller's Fleur  (I watched him on Top Chef Masters and liked him very much!  I had the lobster macaroni & cheese.  It was good, but could have been more cheesy.)
  • Visited the Mob Museum (highlight of the trip.  If you're in Vegas, visit this museum!)
  • Visited the CSI Exhibit at the MGM Grand (lots of fun!)
  • Gave our opinions on a potential new TV show 
  • Shopped
  • Laughed hilariously watching Grease on AMC
  • Got my haircut at Paul Mitchell
  • Ate at Hubert Keller's Burger Bar (enjoyed a Surf & Turf burger -- a burger with asparagus and lobster on a bun.  Yummy, but the lobster was a bit tough.)
  • Enjoyed a water massage
  • Enjoyed oxygen at an oxygen bar
  • Walked a ton

The only downside to a trip to Vegas is all the cigarette smoke.  You can't visit anyplace without walking through a casino, and being saturated in smoke.

But, aside from that, it was a super-fun and relaxing couple of days.  I'm so lucky that my sister and I get along as well as we do!
