My birthday trip to Vegas is quickly approaching (my birthday is on Monday)!! This will be my third trip to Las Vegas with Sheldon and since it will be my 30th birthday I decided we had to be proper Vegas tourists this time around. We usually stay with or nearby family while in Vegas and only have a day or so on the strip. This time we are staying on the strip at New York, New York and we're going all out on shows and food and shopping. I'm sooo excited! One of my 30 before 30 list items was Vegas and Disneyland, but I couldn't talk Sheldon into Disneyland. I'm kind of bummed but know that we really won't have time for both. We'll have to take a Disney trip by itself sometime in the near future.
Here are the things I really want to do:
- Shows: Jubilee, Zumanity, Blue Man Group, Jersey Boys (we'll see what we can get tickets to at the half-price booth)
- Food: Bouchon, Mon Ami Gabi, Bacchanal Buffet, Bahama Breeze (there's a dessert here I love and haven't had since they left Oklahoma ha), Sin City Brewery (their Light beer is the best ever!)
- Shopping: LUSH, Bettie Page, Kate Spade Outlet, Cosmetics Company Outlet, MAC Pro Store, Inglot, Original Penguin Store (for Sheldon). We are so very sad Ben Sherman isn't in Vegas anymore it was the only place I could talk Sheldon into treating himself to fancy clothes. Thankfully they have a Penguin store and their clothes are awesome!
We're also planning on going to Eli Roth's Goretorium (This is soo for Sheldon and not me but I am looking forward to their bar.)
We have to go to the Double Down Saloon just because it's awesome and they have old photobooths!
Drink and Drag - I haven't been here before but it's like a bowling alley/bar with drag queens. I can't wait!
