I found myself back in Las Vegas again this past week. It had been 6 weeks since my last Vegas excursion and this proved to be much more boring as I was there for work. This time, I was trying out a new hotel, staying at Caesar's Palace for the first time.
I arrived on Sunday the 18th, getting in around 10am. I flew in with some other people from work and we all made our way to the hotel. Luckily for me, my room was available and I was able to get my stuff stashed right away. I had most of the day free, so I chose to head out and look around. My first shop was the Vietnamese place inside of Mandalay Bay that Ron and I ate at in March. I was able to get some Pho and relax a bit. From there, I trekked to the other side of the wonderful Las Vegas Strip, searching for Diesel and OBEY products. I struck out on Diesel but hit gold on the OBEY. By now I had been out and about for a few hours and had to cruise back to the hotel to get ready. I had a dinner that I had to attend, so I headed out and did that. Afterwards, I headed back to the room and got some sleep.
Monday was uneventful during the day. I had meetings all throughout the day. The conference that I was attending had a private party at the Flamingo. The party was poolside and the weather was great. I ended up staying until almost midnight. At midnight, I made my way back to Caesar's, did some gambling, and then called it a night.
Tuesday and Wednesday were rather boring. Tuesday was spent doing business stuff all day and packing everything up. Wednesday, I got up, did some gambling, and then flew back to Phoenix around noon. I spent the rest of the day just hanging out around the house and enjoying the day off.
All in all, I got to go to Vegas for a few days, but it was nowhere near as fun as previous trips.
