Viva Las Vegas (part 2)

After I switched off my phone the hubby and I caught a taxi to our hotel and were hoping we could check in early. We were very early and figured at the very least we could drop off our luggage and go in search of food. We had been up for 7 hours already at that point and all the stress of the morning was catching up to me.

The hotel was nice enough to check us in early and after dropping of our luggage we set out on foot to find the Hash House A Go Go. I had heard excellent things about this place from lots of people. It was quite a long walk and by the time we found it I was famished. The line was huge and they said it would be a 30 minute wait. Somehow,we got called back only about 15 minutes later. Let me tell you, this food did not disappoint! Definitely worth the walk and the wait.

This was Brandon's chicken and waffles. Don't ask. It doesn't sound appealing to me, but he said it was good.

This was an eggs benedict with a creamy red pepper sauce. The biscuits were made from scratch and the ingredients were so fresh they tasted like they were from the garden.

After breakfast we wandered around a bit waiting for the clouds to clear. It was quite overcast and we were hoping the sun would make an appearance. By two in afternoon I was tired of waiting and headed for the pool anyways. It was warm enough at this point, and we settled in our lounge chairs with a couple drinks and just relaxed. We spent most of the rest of the day at the pool and after changing we figured we would look for somewhere to eat before our show at 9:30. We found a restaurant called Twin Peaks that had an amazing view of the strip.

After a dinner of grilled chicken tacos and sliders we wandered around the strip some more and made our way to the MGM eventually, where we had tickets for the Beattle's Love show by cirque de Solei. I had been so excited for this because I had never seen a cirque show and heard how good they were. At this point, though we had been awake for so long and I was so exhausted. The show was so good but, I was so tired that I ended up nodding off. :( We ended up leaving a few minutes early and we crashed by 11:30. So much for a crazy first night in Vegas. ;)
