Vegas: Monday Night – Tuesday Morning

Tags :

Las Vegas #05After our day out in the Nevada and Arizona Mojave Desert, we dropped the hire car off at McCarran Airport and got a cab back to the Strip. As Chris and Jen had missed our earlier visit to the Nine Fine Irishmen bar, we hopped out of the cab at the New York New York Hotel & Casino and headed in for a few pints of Guinness. The second watering hole we visited was the Hard Rock Café, not for food, just for cocktails. My favourite cocktail is a Bloody Mary and I rank the mixologist by whether they ask me “how spicy?” and then by how good they make it. The first one at HRC was not as spicy as I like, so we suggested adding some Sriracha sauce for number two and I had to ask for a larger dose in number three! We headed back up the Strip and stopped off for a burger at Bobby’s Burger Palace, which was hosting a wedding reception…only in Vegas! Then we popped over to a bar area outside Chili’s Grill & Bar for a swift one before hitting The Mirage for some gambling.

Vegas Revisited: Beer, Craps & Poker

Las Vegas #31Our trip to Las Vegas was arranged to coincide with our wedding anniversary, which is on the 10th November. We were married at the Chapel of the Flowers, Las Vegas, in 2012. Again, this was an intentional date, as it makes remembering it very easy as it is 10/11/12 in the day-month-year date format we use in the UK. During this first visit to Sin City, 3 years ago, the focus was purely on the wedding and all the organisational matters leading up to the actual day, such as obtaining the marriage licence from Clark County Marriage Bureau.  On the way home, as a happily married couple, having enjoyed the whole experience, we realised we had not done Vegas properly in terms of drinking, partying and gambling…that was rectified this time around!
