Bringin' Sexy Back

Let me paint you a mental picture of Valentine’s Day at my house last night. I’m clutching a Nyquil shot glass in one hand, a fist full if tissues in the other, red nose, and I’m in my bathrobe and slippers by 7:00 pm. If that ain’t bringin sexy back, I don’t know what is. The husband was doing the taxes and if we didn’t have children, we’d have enough to go to Las Vegas. No discussion necessary, when it comes to vacation ideas, Las Vegas is on the top of our list.

There are plenty of things to do in Las Vegas besides gamble, so much so that the last time we went, we vowed to get to the seafood restaurant we kept passing up the time before last that we were there. We knew nothing about it, but we were intrigued. We didn’t know we were stepping into the most expensive restaurant we’ve ever been in. There were couples there that just got married in one of those Las Vegas Chapels, couples celebrating anniversary’s, we had stumbled into romance. The husband ordered an entire lobster and I had humongous crab legs. Black Jack had been very good to the husband that day! While dining like royalty, we discussed what was next for the evening. We have been to Las Vegas quite a few times but never gone downtown, we’ve always stayed on The Strip. When our waiter brought our check we asked him what was the easiest way to get downtown. He excused himself for a minute. When he came back guess what he said?

“Our limo will take you.”

So as I sit struggling to breath out of my nose I scour my Trusted Tours & Attractions newsletter looking for a way to justify taking a vacation while staring in the face of the upcoming summer of a graduation, a wedding, parties, bridal showers and a new teenage driver in the house.

What's scary is that sometimes with all the cheap buffets to get you to gamble, its cheaper to find a promotional fare, fly to las vegas, feed your face for a week than it is to eat at home!

Okay, you have convinced me to go! LOL!

My wife and I honeymooned in Vegas. We were not too big on the gambling, but we caught a David Copperfield show and a helicopter tour of the canyon (not at the same time though). We would definitely go back and try to hit the downtown area.

The Downtown area is a lot different than the The Strip. Everything is closer together and all seems to be moving faster. I definitely recommend checking it out!
