First of all, happy Friday! Last week, I left you all off with part one of our trip to Vegas. The reason I wanted to do this trip in two pieces on this blog was because there is a clear distinction of the week.
Part 1 – Tourists and fully remember every detail.
Part 2- Work/Going out at night so the days started to blend together.
As you will see, I never brought my good camera any where from here on out. Too afraid of something happening to it.
Wednesday and Thursday of our trip (during the day) consisted of going to a tradeshow. This is the monster of all golf industry tradeshows!
During the evenings we would go out to dinner with a group of other industry guys and then out for drinks after.
And then when it starts to get blurry….literally…
On our walks we would check out the sights.
Volcano Action at Treasure Island
And a really big shoe (????)
Then, every night we would land into Gilly’s, in Treasure Island and stand in the same spot. Near the bull riding and the dance floor/stag! This bar was awesome!
Did you catch me say bull riding? :-) Check out cowboy Ryan.
Those nights were FUN! Too much fun but still a good time! You know you’ve had too much fun the night before when you have to sport your glasses instead of your contacts the next day!
On the Thursday night we took a cab down to Freemont street. When I imagine Vegas, Fremont is what I thought it looked like!
Random weirdo’s on the street, cheesy casino’s, half dressed women dancing everywhere, zip liners screaming over top of you and cheap drinks flowing GALORE!
We had our fill of Fremont street pretty quickly and headed back to the Vegas strip in a…LIMO! Woo HOO!
Friday the “work” portion was done of our trip. That didn’t really mean too much since a lot of the customers that we deal with are also friends and we still hung out with them for the rest of the week.
Friday night I had been anticipating ALL week long! Garth Brooks day! We started out with the best steak supper I have EVER had at the SW steakhouse in out hotel.
Then it was time. Unfortunately, you aren’t allowed any photo’s or video’s during the show. But, if you are going to Vegas…GO SEE GARTH BROOKS! It was amazing!
I would be lying if I said I wasn’t happy to see Saturday come. I was getting home sick and I had about all that I could take of Vegas.
We went out for a nice supper with friends and I enjoyed my last trip beverage.
Don’t get me wrong, Vegas is an amazing sight. I would recommend ANYONE going to see it. We hardly gambled and still filled our week with lots of fun activities.
However, a week is Vegas is too long. It’s an intense place and after a week of seeing the same lights and sights we were exhausted and wanted to come home. Vegas isn’t necessarily a place where you do much relaxing.
Would we go back? Heck yes! In a heart beat! I would love to spend another long weekend in Vegas. It was a fun trip!! We got to see one of the wonders of the world and go out and party before the big wedding. It was great to let loose!
Viva Las Vegas!
Have a great weekend!
