It’s too difficult for me to spend a month in LA without a side trip to Vegas. Normally I fly but this time we drove through the mostly desert to get there. I say we drove but Michael loves to drive so that’s great by me. Amazing few days loving to share my passion for Vegas with Michael. For those who rarely visit, I highly recommend the Fremont St Experience with zip-liners passing above as well as amazing shows. Things really buzz down there. We also took in the Penn and Tellar show up at the Strip at the Rio http://pennandteller.com/tickets/ which did not disappoint and we met both of them after the show which was a bonus. I loved sampling an éclair baked by the Cake Boss at The Venetian. Thanks to the Stratosphere www.stratospherehotel.com/ for once again comp-ing my stay and our yummy meals, especially the Top of the World Dining. You are the best but for some reason Michael would not ride on the X-Scream, can’t understand why... http://www.stratospherehotel.com/Activities/X-scream.
