Vegas - Part 2

Tuesday we went to downtown to the Mob Museum. This was so interesting! It's in the old courthouse where some of the mobsters were actually tried.
I learned a few things - When you're in a lineup those lines actually measure you! I had no idea. We also learned that all the counterfit bags, accessories & shoes are all mob businesses. No more fakes for us!
The gun vibrates like a real gun does. Well, I guess. I've never shot a machine gun.
When Dean pulled the lever the light flashed & it made a noise like an electric chair.
Lunch at Triple Georges was so good!
Allison had sage fried chicken that she said was amazing!
I had baked ziti. It was delicious. Dean had bacon wrapped meat loaf.
We walked around Old Vegas for a little bit. We had green tea at Starbucks. Old Vegas isn't my fave. Allison announced that she was ready to get back to the "smell good part of Vegas". HAHAHA! If you've never been, several of the really nice casinos smell WONDERFUL!! EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. we walked through Aria, Allison commented on how good it smelled. I just saw that you can actually buy scent sticks from the website. I also just discovered that you can buy pillows like the ones in the room. I will own one soon!

Our next stop was the Fashion Show Mall. This was a waste of time. It was just a regular mall like you have in every city in America. It's fine if you want to do regular shopping. I wanted to shop at places I couldn't shop at home. We did check out Sak's & Neiman's. I was disappointed in Neiman's. Just not what I expected.

Next we went to Parasol Up, which is a cute bar inside the Venetian.
We had a delicious drink!
Me & my friend Missy. She just happened to be in Vegas the same time we were. I haven't seen her in awhile so it was good to catch up.
I mentioned in yesterday's post about the size of Allison's bladder. This led us on a tour of the many bathrooms in Vegas. This one was in Venetian. It was one of the cooler ones.
The group at Carlos & Charlie's. We ordered drinks & had no idea they were in these cups. So fun!
Love the fountains at the Bellagio. I think we saw them 3 different times.
We saw Zumanity which is a Cirque show & then had pizza at New York, New York. It was sooo good. While we were eating we were right across from the Piano bar so we could see & hear everything going on there. That was fun too.

All of these pics were from my iPhone so they're not the greatest quality.

Part 3 coming up!!!



  1. Looks like fun! I don't like Downtown Vegas any more either...too dirty and old...and last time we were there...homeless people everywhere begging...sad.

  2. I'm loving your recap! And all the pics!

  3. I have never heard of old vegas! It looks interesting and all of the food looks SO yummo :)
