Place 77 – Day 2: Las Vegas,NV – 8 Year Anniversary, The Strip & Best Meal Ever

Breakfast

We got up at a decent(ish) time, but as we are in a hotel, we don’t have a kitchen, so we had to go out for breakfast.

We went to Denny’s for breakfast and each got some sausages, egg, bacon and Curtis got muffins whilst Kim got pancakes with hers.

Curtis had a few cups of coffee and then we left to head down to the strip.

The Strip

We got to the Mendeley Bay hotel where we got out and walked around.

Whilst we were in our Lyft, we were told that the mango margarita from a specific bar was good, so we went there to share one.

Once we had that, we walked around and looked at shops before we went outside and explored the rest of the strip.

We didn’t do anything really, just walked around looking at each restaurant and attraction.

We saw the big fountain by Bellagio and walked around a few hotels.

Manicure & Pedicure

We came back to the hotel and Curtis watched hockey. Whilst he did that, Kim got a manicure and pedicure as she has wanted one for a while.

Best Dinner Ever

As it was our 8 year anniversary, we found a nice restaurant to head to for dinner.

We got a couple of drinks before we went in and then were called in when our table was ready.

We had a booth which was lovely!

Firstly, our waiter, Miguel, was excellent. We got some free bread with a delicious tomato concoction.

We got steak tenderloin with mushrooms for a starter, which was actually a lot of food!

This starter was amazing, and then we moved to the main.

We had a 10oz Filet Mignon each, cooked medium rare, with the signature sauce, accompanied with white truffle oil whipped potato and asparagus with onion and balsamic.

This is the best meal, and steak, we have ever had. The steak was 30 day dry aged, butchered on site and is in the top 9% of all of the US beef.

This meal was great and we left incredibly full and very happy.

Place 77 – Day 1: Las Vegas,NV 🇺🇸 – Vegas Early Night?!

Bus To Vegas

We were up nice and early to shower and get fully packed. We didn’t have breakfast as the plan was to have it at McDonald’s by the bus station.

We got to the McDonald’s and there was a really good breakfast deal, so we got that and then got to the bus terminal and ate.

Shortly after we finished eating, it was time to board the bus.

The bus wasn’t too full and we got seats together, which was good.

All in all, it was about a 5 hour (or so) journey. It was an uneventful journey, with a brief 30 minute stop in Barstow, California.

The rest of the journey was basically just desert.

Arriving in Vegas

We got to Vegas, incredibly tired, and it took us just 10 minutes to walk to the hotel.

We checked in and got to our room and relaxed, briefly. We have a pretty good view.

Walking Around Downtown

We are staying downtown, rather than on the strip. We walked around the downtown area in the day light to see what’s what and what’s where.

We saw a couple of ladies fighting, which seems like standard Vegas!

Pool

After we walked around, we started to get a bit tired, so we walked back to the hotel where we checked out the pool and decided to sit for a couple of hours, basking in the sun.

After the sun started to go in, we went back to the hotel room and relaxed, watching a bit of TV and then we accidentally fell asleep a little!

Dinner

We woke up and then went down to a place called Flock & Fowl.

We got to the place and sat down. It was quite dark but smelled good!

We got a few small snacks, rather than mains. We got a bao each, shared smashed cucumber, sweet and sour boneless chicken wings and delicious sweetcorn.

The food was just ok, nothing was incredible.

Early Night

We were just so tired, so we walked around briefly to see what this place is like at night and then we got a hot chocolate and headed to bed.

We watched the film a simple favor which we really enjoyed actually!
