It was Bob's birthday on Monday, and our last full day in Vegas (we left Tuesday morning). We walked around the strip during the day, and I popped in a couple of stores. For dinner we went to Peppermill, a funky diner that's been around about sixty years. We had never been there before. It's neat looking inside, with flamingo stained glass lamps, and a shaker of rainbow sprinkles on every table. I got pancakes, which I hadn't had in a longgg time. They were HUGE, and very good. I had been excited to check out their firepit lounge, and have drinks there, but unfortunately the lounge was closed for a private party. Bob and I were disappointed. He had also wanted to go the Riveria casino next door to Peppermill, to do some gambling, but we found out that night that it's permanently shut down! So, the night ended up being a let down, especially for Bob. I felt bad, since it was his birthday and all. Also, I had a cold, and wasn't feeling well, so I wasn't in the best of moods anyway.
We ended up taking an Uber to the Flamingo, and got out there, and walked back up the strip to our hotel. He did some gambling here and there. Since I wasn't feeling well, I just wanted to go back to the room, and take it easy, before waking up early for out flight the next morning.
We had a great time at Viva, and it's always hard to go back to "reality". The way I feel when I'm at Viva is hard to articulate. It's just wonderful to see so many gorgeous people with like minded interests as me, particularly fashion interests, ha. It truly must be seen to be believed.
