VIVA LAS VEGAS

Playing the slots in Las Vegas!
I flew to Las Vegas from Calgary early on April 2nd for a short 2 day/2 night stay. It wasn't really a "Vegas" trip in my mind, as I was really going for the Def Leppard concert the following night.

This was my first trip to the city and unfortunately I wasn't feeling the greatest. Even so, I did manage a couple trips to the "strip", played a few slots and enjoyed myself as much as a could under the circumstances. I stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel, and felt right at home there, having stayed at their Orlando location a couple times.

Las Vegas is a wild and wacky city, and I look forward to a return visit. I loved all the people dressed up as different characters along the strip, enjoyed being able to drink where ever and when ever and just the over all atmosphere of the place.

Brian and Amanda with some Flamingo Girls along the strip.
I got quite excited when I spotted "Bumblebee" from Transformers.
Wouldn't Yonge Street be so much more fun with these along it?!
Amanda and I enjoying a frozen "hot chocolate" at Serendipity.

I even managed to have a "lifer" while there, with this one of many Great-tailed Grackles I saw.
And the main reason for my trip to Vegas!
Brian and I were pumped for the concert and the whole VIP Meet and Greet experience, blog and pictures to come.
