Tuesday Talk: Las Vegas

Tuesday is here!   So, it’s Amy quacking at you.

I just recently returned from a fabulous time in Las Vegas.   I am not a gambler.  Gambling appears to involve math, and I am simply NOT good with numbers.   Trust me on this one.

So, what did I do?

I saw “The Beatles Love”, a Cirque Du Soleil production.   It was fantastic!   I highly recommend heading to The Mirage, purchasing your ticket, and settling in for pure entertainment.   You won’t know where to look next, floor, ceiling, straight ahead, behind you....the action is everywhere!

I visited Red Rock Canyon.   Beau-T-i-FuL!  It was Nevada’s first National Conservation Area.    It was also the location of a snow blizzard for us!  So, we waited it out at the Visitor Center.   I also found a terrific book for Earth Day at the gift shop.   You can take the girl out of the library, but you cannot take the library out of the girl.

Hoover Dam made the list, too.    They were on high alert that day because a certain fugitive was still on the loose and those in uniform were not taking any chances.    We paused at the Hoover Dam memorial for a moment of gratitude.   One of my friend’s family members died building the historic dam. It was here that I discovered that my teacher voice echoes very loudly!    

We also went to see Herman and the Hermits featuring Peter Noone.   Fun show!    Even though this is not my generation of music.

We ate.  We ate.   Did I mention we ate?    We pigged out at the newest Gordon Ramsey restaurant.   Seriously, a MUST in Vegas.   Put it on the list.   Hold your winnings back.  And head to Burgr.   The push pops for dessert, just go ahead and order them with your meal.   You know you want to :-)  This is not the place to be shy....or order a salad!

I spotted lots of ducks and I may have even really wanted to bring one home with me.
