We finally arrived in Vegas! Keith (aloha_kieth) who arrived from Hawaii a couple days before was staying at the Monte Carlo Las Vegas Resort and Casino where Sue (arizonaindigenous) and I booked a room along with Virginia (lachicktravels) and Nathalie. Virginia arrived an hour earlier than us from LA and waited with Keith until we arrived. Jerome (castex21) from Indiana, Nathalie (nattie27) from Portland, and Robert (rvegas) from Fort Lauderdale arrived later that night.
We decided to pre-game it in the hotel and have some drinks. We brought a few bottles with mixers along for our mini bar in the room. Russian Standard Vodka, Blueberry Stoli ( Nat’s drink of choice), and Don Julio Blanco (Shots, Shots, Shots!!), orange juice, cranberry, and club soda. Lets get this party started!
When everyone arrived, we planned to meet up Melanie and grab a bite to eat.
We walked over to New York, NY Hotel and Casino and met Melanie (melleme8) at Gonzalez Y Gonzalez Mexican Restaurant. We ordered some drinks, food, and had a great time reuniting with some old friends and meeting new ones.
Keith can't hold his liquor..
Later we decided to go to the strip club Olympic Gardens… Unfortunately, no photos! Sorry =(
After the Strip club we took a taxi to the Carnival Court right outside of Harrah’s Hotel. The Carnival Court is an outdoor circular bar with a live DJ. It’s a very popular bar if you’re looking for an alternative to the more popular upscale clubs and it’s located on the strip. We partied there till the wee hours of the morning and drank like fish. =}
