Vegas Vacation - Homeboi Style

This past weekend, Mike, Andrew, Brian, Shawn and I decided to hit up Sin City and just chill. =) Here are some highlights:

  1. Trying to squeeze five of us into Brian's Xterra for the 4+ hour drive - each one of us fighting for shotgun whenever possible. Also watched Van Wilder - probably one of the most disgusting films I have ever seen - until we arrived in LV @ 4 am.

  2. Staying at the luxurious and spacious Hilton Grand Vacations Club, next to Circus Circus. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, jacuzzi tub, kitchen, washer/dryer, 3 TVs and DVDs,....and much more - all fully stocked. Yes...there were even dishes and cubs in the kitchen. Awesomeness!!!

  3. Checked out the Hold'em tables, finding them quite competitive and I think I was being too shy when playing. However, I got most of my money back through Roulette. Hope to do better next time. =) Oh yeah...we saw Brad Garrett of "Everybody Loves Raymond" @ one of the casinos. Dude, that guy is HUGE.

  4. Eating the best sushi dinner of my life @ Sushi-Mon a few miles from downtown. $25 for all-you-can-eat-sushi and all made right before your eyes upon ordering. Needless to say, I think us five hungry guys cleaned out the menu.

  5. Relaxed in the pool by day and walked the Strip by night, enjoying the colorful light patterns across town.

  6. Squeezing 6 of us on the way back (Charles joined us on Sunday), at first staggering bodies in the back, and then yours truly taking the trunk. But a double feature of "Goodfellas" and "Crash" fixed it. =)
All in all, a really good first-time casino experience and a good getaway with the boys. I can't wait to go back again!
