Las Vegas was all decked out with Halloween decorations, attractions and themes.
We gathered at an attractive and well-appointed timeshare in western Las Vegas, the Cliffs of Peace Canyon. (It seems that everything that is NOT on the Strip is named for a canyon.)
We had adjacent ground floor units with lanais and "shared" the units among 6 adults. We left a note behind for Housekeeping because all the dishes, glasses and cups got mixed up between the two units. My side was the Morning Coffee/Debate side, permitting the sleeper-inners a quiet space.
This is the pool with a waterfall feature which cools one off after soaking in the party-size hot jacuzzi. The boys couldn't resist it and seemed to enjoy the cool water pummeling their brains.
Rock ON Gurlz!
BOO to the usher who saw me get out my camera before the show to get a pic of our group and gave me a schoolmarmy tsk and a finger wag. This is an employee that needs to be recycled...
At the Bellagio, we savored the Chocolate Fountain and an artistic collection of desserts. The sight and aroma of all that chocolate created a "contact high", stimulating my endorphin circulation to dangerous levels.
BOO to our waiter who couldn't clear our plundered dishes fast enough, forcing us to soil an adjacent table; he also took the worst group dining photo ever... BOO also to the pricey-ness of these gastronomic events--$30.
There WAS an exceptional dining value advertised on the side of the Flamingo--an all day Buffet Ticket in 8 participating Strip hotels for $39.99! Wow what a deal! I was informed that Cesear's now has a unisex Vomitorium which seemed perfect for those selecting this experience. Nothing in moderation in LV!
BOO to the MGM for attempting to extort $30 to see the interactive attraction CSI: The Experience. For Shame!
the act of inception: using dreams to implant an idea) with Leonardo Di Caprio. It featured many mindbending special effects that were so disorienting that it was hard to follow the unusal and multi-plotted story.
Trust me; if you plan to see the movie, go to an IMAX theater because you will not understand the movie and at least you can get the wild special effects and see a Very Large Leonardo. BOO-YAH!
I am told it is smaller inside than it appears on TV and they only let small groups inside to browse.
The featured music was Queen and the digital light show was much improved from the previous one (which was very hokey).
