Bertina surprised me with a Vacation to Vegas to celebrate my 30th and her 29th birthday at the end of August. Bertina has been a couple times but this was my first time. We had plenty of things to do as she had booked a couple shows for us to see while we were there, not like there isn’t anything to do anyway.
We stayed at the MGM Grand and were in Vegas from a Thursday through Monday.
We got in around 6pm Vegas time on Thursday and needed to get something to eat. We just decided to eat at the Rainforest Cafe in the Hotel for something quick as we were both starving. Forget the food…..the dessert was AMAZING! It was called the Volcano. Check out the picture. This thing was a mile high
of chocolate, ice cream and hot fudge!
We spent the rest of the night just walking up and down the strip and taking in all the sites. What I found amazing (and tiring), was all the hotels look a lot closer together then what they really are. I swear we walked 100 miles it seemed like.
The shows we took in were LOVE – Cirque du Soleil, we also saw Rita Rudner. We might have been the youngest couple at the show, but she was really good! The last show we went to was American Superstars Celebirty Tribute. The guy that did Elvis was pretty solid!
Here are a few more pictures from the trip. All in all, it was a great time! It is plenty HOT in Vegas in August :). I think the temp was 103 everyday, but I would say the thing that shocked me the most (and maybe it shouldn’t have), was how expensive everything is! I guess long gone are the days of the super cheap buffets just to get you in the casino. The 4 days was probably just the right amount of time to spend there.
