Every time I talk about how much I can’t wait to go back to Las Vegas, people who haven’t been there raise their eyebrows and let me know that they have no interest in visiting. My boyfriend talked me into going for New Years Eve a few years ago and I wasn’t the least bit excited about the trip. But the second I arrived, I knew why so many people made an effort to go to Las Vegas as often as possible.
The last time I went to Vegas I stayed for NINE WHOLE DAYS. Yes, I do have a friend that lives there, and I did stay with her for a good portion of the lazy, crazy, where-did-my-money go days. Yes, I did spend too much money. But yes, it was worth it! For one, it’s beautiful there. You can see the mountains past all of the lights and hotels on the strip. Not a gambler? There is something there for everyone. The hotels are like attractions, the food is delicious, and the shows are amazing.
My friend, Megan, and I went to Tangerine to see Samantha Ronson, who is pretty famous but honestly didn’t impress me all that much. I saw “The Amazing Jonathan” at the Sahara, and he was more of a comedian than a magician, but it was pretty funny. It’s crazy how much drinks at clubs like Tao and Moon cost, but I guess that’s what you have to prepare yourself for when you’re in the Sin. Maybe this year I’ll get a rental car and cruise through the desert. It sounds less expensive, anyway.
