Vegas 11/21/07 Part II November 28, 2007

Where did I leave off? Oh, we had just finished seeing the fantastic Big Elvis show.  After that, we headed to Bally’s to get back on the monorail.  We had to wait a few minutes for it to come, so Mike decided to swim with the fishes.

How can you tell if someone has had too much to drink?  They lay on the ground in the monorail station for a photo op.

We got off the monorail at the MGM Grand and stopped to see the lions.  They were so drugged they couldn’t get their heads off the ground.

It was sad.  I liked the fake lions better.

Mike, well, he preferred the elephants.


So we moved on and crossed the street to New York New York.  Here we are on the walkway that goes across the street.


We can’t go in New York New York without stopping at Nine Fine Irishmen.

We caught an awesome Irish band when we were there,

and of course we had to have a Guinness, because, you know,

125 cal.

Next, we headed over to the Monte Carlo Brew Pub,

where we saw an awesome Prince cover band called Purple Reign.  We even got to hang out with “Prince” for awhile!


Oh, and of course, Morris Day too.

Unfortunately, they had technical difficulties between sets and couldn’t finish up, even though I had convinced Mike to stay there for the second set.  He was pretty tired by that point.

He’s not really passed out–he’s just pretending.  And hiding his anger at making him stay there for hours longer than he wanted to.

We walked back to our hotel after getting lost and ending up behind the Monte Carlo (are you seeing how bad my sense of direction is?).  It was probably about 2:30AM by this point and it was cold–maybe 35 degrees or so.  It was quite a long day and we were ready for some shut-eye.  Stay tuned for more adventures tomorrow.  And more pictures.  Of us in different clothes.

    Nice pictures!

    Why would they drug lions? I don’t get it.

    Joan–I’m just assuming they were drugged because they could barely pick their heads up. I probably shouldn’t have written that because now I’ll have animal rights activists all wound up about the MGM Grand. Every time we’ve ever walked through there the lions just didn’t have any life to them. Maybe they’re just resigned to living a life of captivity and are just unhappy, not drugged.
