TripREvisor - Vegas Baby!

The perfect city for a "Friends Reunion" and a Rod Stewart Concert!  We flew in from Boston, others from New Jersey, Houston, and London for a jam packed, fun filled weekend in the city that never sleeps!
First I must mention that the only direct flight from Boston to Vegas is a Jet Blue flight and I had visions of "Easy Jet" ( enough said!) but surprisingly, we were very impressed with the airline.....
entertainment and whole cans of Diet Coke and snack size bags of chips/crisps!

After checking into the majestic Caesar's Palace we gathered for our first night activity......
                                                    Let the Good times BOWL!
(This picture was actually taken by someone famous  -  but you know what they say .... what happens in Vegas , stays in Vegas)

While the guys enjoyed a competitive Golf Day, 
the gals met for breakfast at the highly recommended 
restaurant across the street,
Hash House a GoGo

You should have seen the Waffle and Fried Chicken plate!  

The rest of our day was spent shopping and exploring the strip.....

We couldn't resist Cosmos at The Cosmopolitan! 

On Saturday we decided to take a road trip to 
Hoover Dam

The driver and co-pilot kept us on track,
the tour was fascinating, and the views spectacular....
(professional photo - not so great!)
We were a little parched from the dry desert air so 
a quick stop at 
an old American favorite.........

and back to Caesar's Palace 
to get "dolled up" for our special evening....
an authentic Italian dinner at Il Mulino
"Tonight's the Night"
a true musical icon,
Rod Stewart!  

Only in Vegas Baby!
