Somehow, my closest coworkers and I (a sisterhood bonded by the nature of working in this department) pulled off a weekend in Vegas together. It was a new experience for me too because it was a more off-the-strip experience, which I never really had! We stayed in a hotel off of the strip and did a night out in the old downtown on Fremont Street, which was so much fun and such an experience!
Well, I'll back up. We all took Friday off, congregated in the morning for morning shots and carpooling, and drove out to Vegas together, getting there in the early evening. We passed those painted rock things on the way in although we didn't stop for a picture with them or anything...
We did that night on Fremont and even though we tried a few different places, we were all very happy with our first choice at a place called Inspire with a rooftop dance floor. It actually ended up raining and it was still warm so everyone just kept dancing in the rain and it was fantastic and fun!
We had one thing on our mind for Saturday: FIND A POOL. We didn't really care about pool parties or anything, but we did find a perfect situation for the pool at the Linq and we ended up having THE best time ever! It was probably my favorite memory from the trip!
Also, while we found 4 perfectly great lounge chairs all together, near the pool and under a mister, it was really taken to the next level when the bartender upgraded us to a poolside bed just for the hell of it!
|One of our big Costco purchases was a huge|
box of a variety of flaming hot chips, which
we refused to go to the pool without, and
all I wanted in life. It was a great day
After the pool we ate, went back and took power naps, and then got ready to untz the night away. Since no one had ever been to Marquee at the Cosmopolitan, and it was one of the newer ones on the block, we decided to start there. We were getting right in until we found out that one girl's license was expired and they needed more proof of her date of birth. That's how we ended up in our clubbing dresses in the FedEx office of the Cosmopolitan printing out documents.
We had a grand old time, I also liked the outdoor space of Marquee, but in the end we decided we were mostly down for walking the strip and finding something less clubby that was just playing some good ol' classic top 40 music. That's how we ended up in Double Barrel
Not a bad time! We also hit up Taco Bell Cantina (that was definitely an experience) before going back to the hotel to feast on our food, chug water, and get to bed. We hit the road the next day around 10ish and I didn't get home until almost 5. Sheesh! We did stop for bathroom breaks, ice cream and lunch, but still.
It was such a great trip with such a fun group that is pretty spread out and we were all so excited and surprised that we were able to pull it all off! Oh, and shout out to Charles, our favorite Lyft driver ever!
When I got home I unpacked, took a shower, put a face mask on, went to the living room, put on The Office and immediately fell asleep. After a restful power nap, AJ and I watched the newest Game of Thrones episode. Sooooo sick!
I also just came back from a lunchtime yoga class here at UC Irvine and feeling super zen and rested... Namaste!
