Day 6: Viva Las Vegas

From the Grand Canyon, we headed further west to Nevada. About five minutes after hitting the road, I realized my necklace that J-Radebach had gotten me had fallen off. After a minor panic attack and quick turnaround, I found it in the parking spot at the hotel. WHEW. You never realize how sentimental and treasured a gift from someone is until it goes missing.

The temperature climbed the further we went. We made a few pit stops, then to Vegas about six hours later and decided to stay at New York-New York hotel on the strip.

Part of the drive was right over the Hoover Dam and by Lake Mead. IMG_4334   IMG_4331  

The Nevada gift was a Jamba Juice giftcard, just a few miles from my house.  IMG_4327 IMG_4354 IMG_4353 IMG_4321 IMG_4320  IMG_4318 IMG_4317  IMG_4315IMG_4349 IMG_4348IMG_4350

After leaving our suitcases in the room, we walked around the strip, then headed downstairs of NYNY for happy hour at the sports bar Nine Fine Irishmen. IMG_4374 IMG_4373  IMG_4371 IMG_4370    IMG_4366  IMG_4364  IMG_4362  IMG_4360 IMG_4359  IMG_4357  IMG_4355 IMG_4351 IMG_4377 IMG_4376 IMG_4375 

Then, to Rio for a gluttonous dinner buffet pre-show. IMG_4383 IMG_4382

After dinner, we went to Chippendales, where a classmate from Temple works and was able to get us tickets.

Post show, we headed down the hall to Voodoo Lounge for some incredible views.

Then, we walked around the strip again and checked out some of the other hotels.
