Your best chance to get a Royal Flush in a casino is in the bathroom. ~V.P. Pappy

It won't be at this money-sucking, dream-killing, devil machine.  So why do I keep shoving $20 bills into them???  Just doing my part to help the Vegas economy.

Let's talk about more pleasant FOOD!!!  

Since Mr. B's flight was delayed on the first night, we just walked over to the MGM Grand to Fiamma.  Italian.  Good.

But they had these huge things hanging from the ceiling.

And all I could think about were these things we found snorkeling the last time we were in Cabo.

I just want to know who thought sea urchins would make great light fixtures?

Yesterday, we decided to go for a walk up the strip and get a closer look at the new CityCenter area (where the new ER residences will be).  It was massive.

Takes up at least a block.  If you're a "strip connoisseur" it occupies every inch of space between the Monte Carlo and The Bellagio.   

Hopefully it will be a little more understated than say....New York, New York...

And, Paris

And more like The Bellagio.....where we ended up and decided to donate some money into one of those aforementioned machines.

And grabbed some lunch at Olives where I ordered this.  I think it was called a Pilandro.  The description was...."silver tequila, muddled pineapple and cilantro, with a squeeze of fresh lime"....and since I love cilantro but never experienced it in a cocktail, I was all over this.  Did not taste the cilantro.  Tasted like a margarita.  But I decided I'm going to work on this one at home.  There's potential there!

After an afternoon nap, we headed back over to The Bellagio for dinner at Picasso and then to see Cirque du Soleil's "O".  Dinner was incredible right down to Mr. B's two desserts!  There were two chocolate choices and he couldn't decide so he made me order one, but he ate them both.  Swear.

The only thing I can say about "O" is that I need to work out more.  Damn if that wasn't the biggest assemblage of perfect bodies that I have ever seen.  And they have to be to do what they do for two shows a night.  Unbelievable.  If you've never seen a Cirque du Soleil show (and this was my first) put it on your bucket list.
