Leaving Las Vegas

The time and the money disappeared far too quickly. There was too much gambling, too much walking, too much drinking, too little sleep and almost enough fun.

I've lost count of how many times I've been to Vegas now but there is still so much I haven't seen and done in that amazingly decadent tourist trap. I try to see or do something new each time I go.

Among the firsts this trip:

* Checking out the aquarium at
Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay.
* Getting an eagle's eye view of the city from the
Stratosphere Las Vegas tower.
* Walking to the
Thomas & Mack Center after a power outage in a casino made me miss my bus to the National Finals Rodeo.
* Playing
Let It Ride.
* Hooters Girls.

If you haven't been to the Liberace haven't been to Las Vegas.

GRT, I've driven past the Liberace Museum a bunch of times and I know where it is. I've also been by Liberace's house in Palm Springs. Does that count?

Caitlinator, a may need you to have a little chat with Brat. She definitely does not find Hooters yummy.

And T, Terri Clark was very good. I've almost forgiven her for getting married and spoiling another fantasy.
