So when I said "tomorrow" I totally meant five days later -___- (such a slacker!) Ok I'll try to break it down into days because it'll be much easier for me to remember.
After arriving and just relaxing in our room and stuffing our faces with Johnny Rocket's we knocked out excited for what this crazy city had in store for us. When we woke up we decided to go and look around the "mall" like complex that was in the Venetian. A shoppers paradise! So many different stores and temptations just waiting to drain your money -___-. What I loved was that the Venetian also has a built in river with beautifully decorated gondolas and also a painted lit sky to make you feel as if you are strolling in Venice on a perfect spring day. We didn't ride the gondola but we saw couples and families line up to ride on the boat steered by men and women donning striped shirts and cute straw hats. If any of you have seen or played Assassin's Creed II and watched Ezio jump from building to building, that is the perfect description of what we saw there.
We even had performances! A group of people sang in Italian and danced serenading the crowd. John and I watched as we ate our yummy gelato!!
That day we also picked up our tickets for two of the shows we were going to see. Phantom of the Opera: The Las Vegas Spectacular and Jersey Boys. (Yes I've seen both on Broadway, but I just had to see them with the fancy super production!)
After walking around we went back to our room to get ready for the Phantom show. Well...more like I went to go get ready because I take foreverz!
Here is what I came up with the first night (and I'm wearing a custom necklace by Steph)
Finally I'm ready, I think John was just lying in bed waiting for me to be finished haha. So we go downstairs to the theatre and all the staff is yelling at the crowd not to take any photography of anything kind. Of course I snuck one with my phone
The show was great, the production amazing, the chandelier gorgeous, the....ok ok, I'll stop. It was a shorter version of the original with some scenes tweaked because Vegas has a 90 minute rule for shows so it was like the Broadway Phantom fast forward 2x? That's what it felt like to me. The seats were hell of a lot roomier than Bway that's for sure!
We came out of the play starving and found a small Italian restaurant that had a prefixe dinner. We were treated with great hospitality by this server who called me Senora. Then I realized that our water was eight dollars along with my twelve dollar drink, so I chugged it at the end. Hahaha.
End of Night Two
So here comes the picspam again because all we really did that day was walk the strip which was super crowded!! Enjoy! (I didn't resize the pics so just click on them if you want to see the super duper quality)
We went into a mall for refuge from the sun for a bit. Don't mind my shininess lol
