Home, Home Again
Like BeeBee and her family, DF and I went to Las Vegas for the weekend. Unfortunately, we didn't have a chance to meet this trip although we at dinner only a few yards apart from each other at the Venetian on Christmas night.
DF and I are creatures of habit, so we stayed at the Mirage again. It's a nice property and centrally located on the Strip, so it works for us. It was incredibly crowded, as was every place we went! We spent a lot of time wandering from casino to casino, eating (Onda at the Mirage, Margaritaville, B & B at the Venetian, Stratta at the Wynn, and Wolfgang Puck at the MGM Grand) and drinking. We also went to see David Copperfield's show--yes, I know it's all smoke and mirrors, but how?
It was a quick trip for us, only about an hour's flight. It was wonderful to get away from cold and quiet New Mexico, just as wonderful to come home. 3 days at a time is just about enough for us.
Oh and BeeBee, I have no idea about New Year's. How about a warm beach somewhere?
