Viva Las Vegas - Hello Bellagio

We just got home last night from a great trip to Las Vegas with Jim and Kathy and Tom and Donna. I am usually a 3 night per trip person, but when I go to Vegas, I am always wishing for a couple of more days.

We stayed at my favorite hotel. We arrived Wednesday morning and spent the next 3 days at the pool. Although it was 109 degrees outside, with 6% humidity it just doesn't seem that hot. We had a cabana that had misters so when you wanted to stay out of the sun, it was very comfortable.

We ate lots of good food. The only place I didn't eat at that I wanted to was Smith and Wollensky's, but there was not enough time. You can only stuff in so much food.

Wednesday night, we saw Danny Gans. That was my third time and I think the absolute best. He is awesome. We saw the Beatles show "Love" the second night and none of us were too thrilled. It didn't match up with the rave reviews. Friday night we saw "O". It was my second time and it was much better than the first. The first time, I tried to "follow the story" and there wasn't any story and I missed all of the production. The performers are unbelievable.

The only game I played was the nickel slots. There is one particular machine at the Bellagio that is still in the same spot and that is the only one I play. The first night just before dinner, I decided to check it out. I put in $5 and won $125.

It was a great trip and I can't wait to go back again soon.

We'll be there in two weeks! I'm so glad to hear that it doesn't feel that hot. I was a little worried about that. :)
Sounds like you had a great time!
