Vegas, Baby!!!!!

Last month my cousin and I went to Vegas for her birthday. It was her first time and my second time. We stayed at the LVH (Las Vegas Hotel). A little drama, I missed my flight on the Thursday and booked another flight on the way to the airport. My cousin landed shortly before I did. Nonetheless, we made it and we were dead tired and hungry. The Friday (her birthday) we laid out by the pool and had drinks. There was a Benihana in the hotel, so we ate there for dinner. I love Benihana because they cook in front of you and the food is delish. I was sick with a head cold the whole trip, but I kept up well. 

The Saturday, we caught one of those double-decker buses and toured The Strip. It was 90 degrees the whole weekend, so of course we got quite the tan. The strip was full of tourists and entertainers in costumes. My cousin and I got off the bus and walked the strip for a bit and took pictures with some people. We saw the water show at the Bellagio, which was beautiful. We tried to see if we could catch a show, but we missed the schedule. When the sun knocked us out, we caught the bus back to our hotel and got ready for dinner. 

I couldn't resist Tao for dinner. We took a cab to the Venetian resort and waited at the bar until we were seated. I absolutely love Tao; in New York and in Vegas. The atmosphere, the music, the vibes, and of course the food and drinks. This trip was especially nice because my cousin and I are two very non-dramatic ladies. We enjoyed a very mellow tourist-y trip to Vegas. The weather was great, we spent way too much money, and we didn't even go to one night club. Every club plays techno all night anyway. 

The last time I went to Vegas, I stayed at the Luxor. The LVH is on the opposite end of the strip from the Luxor. Both were great hotels with a ton of restaurants and slot machines. The next time I go to Vegas I want to go with my family and stay at a hotel that's closer to the middle of The Strip. I had a great time this time, and my cousin said it was her best birthday ever.
