Horse in the Bellagio
Today we woke up early because we were going to take the bus to the outskirts of the city to go do some shopping. You can get a 24 hour bus pass for really cheap and the buses are easy to use. There was a dramatic change in the scenery once we left the strip. You finally realize that Las Vegas is indeed a desert. After we did our shopping we were on the bus back to the hotel. We were passing the Circus Circus hotel when Britt screamed and pointed. We were driving buy a fast food place and on the sign in big letters were $0.99 HOT DOGS!!! We finally found them! However, we were on a moving bus and so we couldn't get them :(. At least we knew they existed and we could give up our search.
We decided to do some more walking around. We refilled our slushies, and did some gambling.
Gardens in the Bellagio
That night we ate at Jimmy Buffet's Maragritaville. The restaurant was in our hotel so everyday we would hear the Margaritaville song all the time. It played every 20 minutes or so it the restaurant. Even now when I hear the song, it brings back memories of Vegas. Since this was our last night, we decided that we would have to finish all the alcohol in our hotel rooms since none of us wanted to bring it back with us. The girls brought their stuff to our room and we drank away. We played all our favourite songs and sang our hearts out. It was our last big night and we were going to enjoy it. There was a feeling of excitement in the air and although we knew we would all be hanging out with eachother after Vegas like we always do, it felt as though we weren't.
We all drank way too much that night none of us were in a mood to walk to the club. So we decided to live it up and take a limo (even though it was a 5 minute drive). There was a limo outside our hotel and the driver gave us an insane deal (cheaper than a cab ride here at home). It just seemed fitting that we would finish our trip with a bang. We went to Tryst nightclub in the Wynn. Unlike the others, the line wasn't that bad at all. The club was beautiful, with an outdoor patio next to a waterfall and everything. I wasn't in the best shape and made a few trips to the bathroom to revist my dinner from Margaritaville haha but I kept going! I wasn't going to give up on our last night. Everyone had a great time and we partied till 5 am. Just as we were about to leave, they played our song, "Dont stop believin" by Journey. I couldn't have asked for a better last night.
