On Thursday afternoon Matt and I decided that we needed a trip to Vegas.  We figured we could leave Friday after he got off work and come home on Monday.  So, I packed our bags and loaded up the car while Matt was at work and within an hour of him getting home we were off. Surprisingly, traffic wasn’t as bad as we were expecting and we arrived in about 4 hours.  We crashed at Tracy and Anton’s place, which isn’t too far from the strip.  It was our first trip to Vegas where we didn’t stay on the strip, but we got to hang out with some great friends!  Tracy and Anton have completely remodeled their entire downstairs and it looks amazing!  Anyways, Friday night we pretty much just hung out and chatted with our friends.

Tracy and Anton had plans on Saturday to finish up their crown molding with her dad, so Matt and I were on our own to hang out.  We decided we’d do the usual and wander around the strip.  We parked at Caesar’s Palace and had our first drink, which turned out to be too pricey.  So, Matt headed back to the car and grabbed a bag of mini bottles I had been saving for a rainy day.  Man, this blog post is going to make it seem like we have a drinking problem and I cannot confirm nor deny the allegations.  Anyways, we ended up finding a vendor that had Red Bull’s, so we bought one and added our own vodka.

At this point we figured it would be a good idea to actually eat something and headed over to Margaritaville for a snack…OK, and more drinks.  We found our spots at the bar, which just happened to be the same seats we sat in the last time we were there.  We started with some drinks and nachos. Then it was time for our tradition..I asked the bartender to make us shots of her choosing.  After she consulted with her co-workers she made us a concoction of pineapple, sour apple pucker and vodka.  My favorite kind of shot because it didn’t taste the least bit like liqour!

Later we walked around the strip some more and ended up back at Planet Hollywood in Caesar’s Palace.  Matt had to sober up so we could head back to Tracy and Anton’s for dinner.  We shared a sandwich and I enjoyed a couple of more drinks.

I don’t remember too much that happened the rest of the night.  I remember playing a dice game with Tracy, Anton, Gary and Matt…it had something to do with 1’s and 5’s.  Oh and I remember yelling, “Go Anton, it’s your birthday, do a shot” over and over.  It’s something THEY will remember and remind me of the rest of my life!  I’m sure I was annoying, but I think I had fun!
