After getting quite a bit of work done, I was ready to go play with Melanie for the afternoon in anticipation of our big clubbing night at The Bank @ Bellagio! YEAH! We were meeting up with a friend of ours, Desiree, at the Yard House for lunch and a little travel networking who we had seen for a little bit the night before at Blue Martini. Desiree organizes several social groups through meetup.com and that is how I met her....not realizing at first how much we really all had in common. The Yard House is one of my favorite restaurants and this was my first time at the new one here in Vegas. Dang them for finally building one as I was already moving back to Cali! The Yard House features a great Happy Hour menu with select appetizers half off as well as many of their micrbrews! SWEET!
After a quick bite and my favorite Lost Coast Brewery - Downtown Brown, we were off to shop and get ready to head out dancing! Melanie of course had to stop at Yogurtland, her new favorite place (although they only feature one sugar free flavor so I am surprised she likes it.
We met up with Melanie's friend who was getting us in and headed over to try and find the "guest list" line. Yeah, didn't really exist. We had to kinda fight our way to the front where it seemed as though they were picking and choosing who they wanted to let in based on the slutiness of the females' outfits! Melanie finally got someone's attention to have them check for us on the list. In the meantime, we talked to two people who asked if there was any way Mel could include them on her list so we did (we had down for 10 people and only 3 of us actually ended up making it so we had plenty of spots left).
Nothing too crazy to report from our night out (shocking I know) - Melanie's friend Ryan came with us and we all hung out and danced, taking breaks to people watch periodically. It was Cory Feldman's Birthday celebration night so we heard him sing and I think I saw a glimpse of him at one point in the night.
We made some new friends from Los Angeles who hung out and were buying Ryan's drinks.
We finally got out of there at almost 4am and decided to check out the Bellagio Conservatory which I LOVE and haven't seen the latest display. OMG- their 4th of July one was spectacular! I loved it and it was even better because it was practically deserted! We stopped and took a few pictures - they even had a replica of the Bellagio itself, complete with the fountain show! It was just amazing! Poor Ryan just wanted to go to sleep and here Melanie and I are keeping him there taking photos of us! HA HA.
Back to the house, we make a bed on the couch for Ryan and walk him into the house whereupon he falls right back to sleep. Melanie grabs our nachos and we head into the guest room where I am sleeping to do what of course......
