Place 77 – Day 3: Las Vegas,NV – Mob Museum & Winning Money!

Breakfast & Pool

We didn’t really have any plans for the day today, so we got up and found some breakfast. We went to Dunkin’ Donuts for a bagel and then went back to the room to get ready for the day.We got ready and wanted to go and chill by the pool for a little bit, so we got ready to do that and headed there.We got to the pool and it was absolutely rammed, so we had to say goodbye to the pool and we went out to the Mob Museum instead, via Starbucks.

Mob Museum

We had been recommend the mob museum by a few people, so we had to check it out.We paid for an extra tour, rather than just the regular tour and we’ll get to that part shortly.The museum was a lot of reading, but we pretty interesting. It talks about the mob, prohibition and how Vegas became what it is today.There was many an artifact in this museum, including the above Al Capone revolver and there was the wall of which the Valentine’s day massacre took place.

Speakeasy & Distillery Tour

We left the main exhibit at a perfect time and went down to the basement where there was a speakeasy and we had a Distillery tour booked!The speakeasy had a great vibe and looked pretty authentic.We got taken into a hidden area for our tour which is where the distillery is.We were given some history, stories and information before trying some of the local wares. The Distillery makes moonshine, which we tasted at 100% proof. This was pretty strong but we didn’t mind the flavour.We then tried a vodka, which was good quality and very nice.After this, we had a cocktail made with moonshine, which had a lot of ginger and other spices in it. This was WAY too ginger-y for us, and just burned our tongues and throats.We then tried a fireball-esque drink which was quite nice.That was the end of the tour, but not the end of drinks!We got a drink each at the speakeasy bar. Curtis got an old fashioned and Kim an espresso martini.Curtis’ drink was fancy and came inside a book!

Pizza Hut

We left the speakeasy and went back to the room to relax a little.We relaxed for a little bit and then got hungry, so we walked for 30 minutes to get a Pizza Hut, but got a Lyft back.The pizza was pretty good!

Gambling (just a little)

We decided after dinner that we would try our hand at a little gambling.We went to a hotel and changed a $5 to 5 $1 notes, so we could bet a small amount only.We started on a 25c slot machine and won $1.10 on that before we moved on to a few $1 machines.

We used our $1.10 on the first $1 machine and won $15 on our first go on a $1 machine! We had a couple of $1 left, so we used them up but still walked away with $10 profit!Kim rewarded herself with a donut and then we headed back to get packing.We leave Vegas tomorrow, at least for now!


This Time Last Year!
