Quick update on a busy day in Vegas

Oh, what a day, what a day!

We woke up this morning and Rob announced that he was going to take me to dinner at the Top of the World restaurant at the Stratosphere.  He had wanted to keep it a secret so I would be surprised but he remembered my intense fear of heights and had to make sure I was okay with it.

Let me just tell you, it was wonderful!

There was a bit of a wait for the elevator and then they can only fit so many on it.  The elevator freaked me out a little because there were so many ppl crammed together on it and it rises at an extremely rapid pace.  Your ears pop instantly once it gets going but I guess it would take forever to get to the top at a regular elevator speed.  At any rate, it was totally worth it!

The restaurant itself revolves 360 degrees an hour and is completely encased in glass.  Just Vegas scenery as far as the eye can see.  It was also very elegant compared to what I am used to.  Rob and I don’t usually dine anywhere that actually has cloth napkins so I was impressed.   I ordered a turkey club on a croissant with fries and Rob ordered a half a chicken cashew sandwich on a croissant with the lobster bisque. Everything was wonderful.  The wait staff was attentive without being overbearing and the deserts looked fabulous.  Too bad we were too full from the meal to get one.

Once lunch was done we played a little at the Strat and found it pleasant.  Not too fancy for us, a bit of a downtown feel.  From there we headed to the Venetian for a very anticipated trip to Madame Tussauds Wax Museum. I had been wanting to go here for the last two years but we have never had the time/motivation in the past trips to do it.  It was very much worth the wait.  I have so many pictures!  It was really creepy at first because you can’t tell what is real and what isn’t until the person moves, but it was so great!

We joined the Venetian slot club and then played some nickel Yahtzee machines. I bought in for twenty and left with seventy-five dollars and a new feeling about the tightness of slots on The Strip. Maybe they aren’t so bad after all.  Currently we are back at the Four Queens and Rob has won us some money on our new favorite Regis machines. We will soon be heading back down to see our favorite bartender Dan and play some more slots.

I just thought I would update really quickly.

It has been a wonderful day so far!
