Kevin and I celebrated our “9 years of meeting each other” anniversary with style in Las Vegas. It was a short trip, driving over from Phoenix on Friday after work and returning on Sunday afternoon. We started by checking into our room at the Tropicana, followed by dinner at D.O.C.G enoteca. Kevin and I are fans of the show Chopped, so we had to dine at this restaurant by Scott Conant. The next day, we explored the strip and tried our hands at a little gambling in the afternoon. I had only visited Las Vegas once before, with my mom, when I was about 21 years old– and Kevin and I have never been since moving to Phoenix, though it is less than a 5 hour drive away. When Kevin and I have a free weekend and something to celebrate, we usually head for the airport, so this was a fun change of pace.
I easily logged my daily goal of 10,000 steps while touring the casinos on Saturday. In the evening, we watched O by Cirque du Soleil. I believe this was my fourth Cirque du Soleil show, and I was definitely impressed by the performance, especially the stage, which at times transformed into a pool. We ended the day with a late dinner at Mon Ami Gabi. A quick round or two of Roulette after breakfast on Sunday before heading home? Sure, why not?
