Martin Luther King Jr. Day meant a three day weekend and we were ready to get away. I wanted somewhere warm and Jose just needed to get out of the house, since he's been cooped up all winter.
We decided on Las Vegas. As much as I dislike Vegas I was excited about being warm and getting away. I also wanted to check out the Burlesque Hall of Fame after hearing about it from Melody Sweets from Absinthe.
The drive was nice, I love seeing the red rock in Southern Utah. We got an early start to Vegas, arriving around 8:00 AM. We couldn't check into our room until noon so we played slots and had a bloody mary or two. I was on an empty stomach and feeling good. We wander to eat some really good sopes at Tacos El Gordo, then back to the bar. We did our usual drinking and meeting new people at the bar. Time flew by and before we knew it we'd been imbibing for 12 hours.
We went to the China town area for sushi and I got an amazing massage. We went to Mystére, which was pretty cool, but expensive since we didn't make it to the buy one get one half off ticket sales place.
The main reason I hate Vegas is because the drunkenness always turns into drama. I got out of hand and we're still slowly recovering a week later. We got a chance to do some fun things and I got to feel the sun, but Vegas and I just don't mix.
