One Night in Las Vegas
So you have only one night in Las Vegas and you
want to make the most of it? While you could gamble the night
away how much fun would that be? Let me think, win a few
thousand dollars while indulging in free drinks and being draped
by the good looking people. That could work.
You could also try another alternative. Go to
a few bars, have a decent meal and meet a ton of people. You can
always squeeze in some gambling and maybe a tiny nap before
heading out again.
This is what you should do this evening.
The Pink Taco Bar at the Hard Rock
Before Dinner Drink.
Grab yourself a seat at the bar and ask for a
shot of Tequila Corazon anejo or Don Julio 1942. Get it on the
rocks and sprinkle just a touch of lime and ďsipĒ.
My father loved to ďsipĒ and so I have acquired a
taste for fine Tequila.
You can order a Margarita and some tacos but
you need to make the most of this evening so you might want to
pass up on the Mexican food and save yourself for other
If you decide to eat I would suggest the
Shrimp tacos or the Carnitas tacos. Since I enjoy fried
tortillas the nachos worked for me as does the Carnitas plate.
How can you argue with Fried pork?
Simon Kitchen and Bar
While this place is a bit trendy I love that I
donít have to dress up to get into it. The food is daring and
Unfortunately, I love some of the staples of
everyday life like the crispy calamari. I have to start most
meals with squid, itís who I am. My wife loved the Tuscan Salad
and I have to say that it was good although I had Caesar
dressing surround my taste buds so Iím not sure.
The pastas all are good and convenient if you
are not looking for a big meal. My petite companion felt they
served their purpose. I on the other hand dropped in the
meatloaf and I have to tell you it is a fine piece of combined
meat products. I could hear my taste buds cheer as I devoured
the mashed potatoes that came with it. I had a taste of the spit
roasted chicken and I nearly fouled myself it was so good.
Two shots of Tequila
After Dinner Drink
This place is a little classy but sometimes
you need to clean up and enjoy what the good life. Take a seat
on the patio and enjoy a dirty Martini as you look out over the
Bellagio Fountains. You can listen to some good jazz or have an
intriguing conversation. Its free to walk in and feel important,
so sink into the comfortable chairs and get a little of the
classy side of Las Vegas in you.
The Nightclub for the Night
Okay, itís expensive but the views are great and
the people watching does not compare anywhere else. This is the
latest in hip and it is worth seeing even if you have to wait in
line to get in. The bar is 55 floors up and you get a good look
at the strip. Go out to the deck and look down and if youíre not
afraid of falling to your death you can see the pool and the
pretty people having a good time below you.
