Viva Las Vegas!

My boyfriend Mike and I went to Vegas for our birthdays and we had a blast! We made a long weekend out of the trip, left on a Friday and returned on Monday. The weather was 100 plus degrees each day and not a cloud in the sky. We ate, drank, gambled, drank some more and hardly slept! We were lucky enough to stay in a celebrity spa suite at the MGM Grand.
Every night we went to a show.

Friday night we saw "Amazing Jonathan" at The Krave theater inside Planet Hollywood. The Amazing Jonathan is more like a comedic magician who attempts to do magic tricks and makes them fun. We sat in the front row so I couldn't get away with taking pics (you weren't allowed too). You can find some video clips of his performances on

Saturday night we ate dinner at the Nine Fine Irishman Pub in the New York New York Hotel. Mike had beer braised short ribs and I had some yummy pork tenderloin. After dinner we headed over to the get in line for our next show, Zumanity. This show was awesome! Very naked and not the type of show for everyone however since it is a Cirque Du Soleil show it was very entertaining.

Sunday was Mike's birthday. I took him to the Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay. We saw tons of cool fish and of course sharks. After the aquarium we roamed around Mandalay Bay, The Luxor, and Excalibur. After a long day of walking around and drinking we got ready for dinner. I took him to Shibuya, a Japanese restaraunt in the MGM Grand. It was the BEST sushi we had ever had! The photo to the left is us in Shibuya drinking our sake. After our yummy dinner we went up to the Wynn Resort and Casino to The Grail Theater to see the Monty Python show "Spamalot." We had front row seats!!! It was another awesome show. After the show we headed to downtown Las Vegas to have some fun in Fremont Street. We gambled, had some drinks, watched the light show, and enjoyed the scene.

Overall our trip to Vegas was a success! We can't wait to go back, hopefully next time we will have more time to relax and lay out at the pool. :-)
