Las Vegas: Day 7

It’s our last day in Vegas and it’s more of a traveling day than anything else for us.

Yesterday was quite the adventure though! We ate our Lunch at restaurant with much prestige: Gordon Ramsey’s Pub and Grill”, which is located in the “Caesar’s Palace Casino & Resort”. Damn, was it ever good! Not only the food, but the outlay of the entire restaurant, the service, everything was just so proper, precise and articulate, but not in an uncomfortable “snobby” high-class restaurant way; the restaurant itself was really “hip” if you want to call it that. Everyone working in that restaurant knew their job and did it to near perfection, they hired the perfect staff; at least that’s how it seemed from my perspective.

After one of the best restaurants experiences that I’ve ever had in my life, Amy and I trekked on back to our hotel to tour what’s called the “Habitat”. It’s basically an enormous garden that’s been created in the back of the hotel to house exotic birds and other animals from all over the world. They had Flamingos, ducks from Asia, birds from South America and there were an abundance of Koi fish in the water that were also monstrous in size.
I took a bunch of photos, but that will have to wait for a further post as I’m currently waiting at the Las Vegas airport with a limited Internet connection and no computer.

I discovered that my awesome friend Jen was vacationing in Vegas with her boyfriend Andre during the same time that we were there, so we all decided to meet up at “Bubba Gump’s Shrimp Restaurant” for Supper to catch up and have a fun and awesome last night out in town. For those of you who don’t know, “Bubba Gump’s Shrimp” is a chain of restaurants that specialize mainly in shrimp and fish dishes. They base the theme of their restaurant around the “Forrest Gump” movie and have the movie playing 24/7 on repeat. The restaurant is tons of fun; it’s great food and great drinks! I’ve been two the one in San Diego and Honolulu.

One of my Kung-Fu instructors insisted that I must check out the Stratosphere before leaving Vegas. He said that it’s a sight that must be seen! So, that’s what we did! All four of us bussed down to the Stratosphere and rode up an elevator to what I remembered was about 107 floors or so. Man, oh man, what a breathtaking sight of Sin City from the top floor. We were able to walk a full 360 degrees to get a full-on view on the city. To make it even a little more enjoyable, they actually had a bar all the way up there! Looking down through those slanted windows wasn’t adrenaline pumping enough, so Jen and I decided to try out one of the rides at the top of the tower called “The Big Shot”. It’s basically similar to “The Drop Zone” in Canada’s Wonderland and many other theme parks, except this one is on TOP of the Stratosphere. I must have been screaming like a school girl! Man, was that ever exciting as hell! Your body is actually floating in your seat for a few seconds!

That ride finished up our time at the Stratosphere and off to Fremont Street we went to get some drinks, check out the entertainment and play some slots. Jen and Andre never have been there during the night, but I think they had a great time for the time we were there. Andre even won 350$ at the casino, incredible! Last time I won a large sum of money was at the Winnipeg “Regent” casino and I walked out with nearly 1500$. On several occasions my grandparents walked out with at least one thousand dollars or more.

Well, my thumbs are cramping up from writing all of this on my iPhone and I’m going to be boarding my flight soon. I promise I’ll upload photos from my adventure yesterday in a later post. Time to zip forward three time zones!
