A surprise quick trip to Vegas!
Along the bottom: L to R: our room, fish and chips for dinner along with my glass of wine ( for the T-gang) Top RH is me popping out of the mystery box on stage, before the show.
Even though the weather wasn't the best for traveling, we made the 5 hour drive over to Vegas for a quick get away that combined a little business with pleasure. We headed over Wednesday about 1 PM and were checking into out room about 6 PM....the extra time was for a lunch stop along the way.
DH had gotten on-line Tuesday evening and bought us tickets to see Penn and Teller...front row seats.. for Wednesday night at 9 PM, so it was just a quick rest and then getting ready to go. We usually drive our own vehicle around Vegas, but the hotels and casinos now charge for valet parking, if your not a registered guest. So we made our first UBER ride! It was great....door to door...round trip was about $10, a cab would have been double that each direction.
The show was at the Rio Hotel and Casino, so we had dinner before the show. We both chose the show special of fish and chips, that came with a cup of soup........way over priced but we were starving and the days of eating "cheap in Vegas" are just a faded memory. Sadly, it was too much food and neither of us could finish it all......it was delicious fish!
The Penn and Teller show was great! I have always wanted to see them, they are magicians for those who don't know who they are.....even though there really is no magic....just the slight of hand..LOL!! It was a 90 minute show with no intermission, and they kept your attention the whole time.
By the time we were back at our hotel it was midnight.....needless to say we slept in the next morning.
So, not to bore you to tears, I'll save the rest of the trip for an other T-day post. Now it is time to grab a fresh cup and go visit the T-gang hurry, I'll meet you over there.
