But, moving on, we went out for a couple of drinks in the hotel that first night, and then just went to bed. We had been up for 24 hours by the time we went to bed. Thursday we headed over to the Orleans in the morning to pick up our Viva wristbands. Luckily the line was very short, and it only took a couple of minutes. After that we headed out to lunch near our hotel, and then we went over to Frankie's Tiki Room. There were only a few people there, so that was really nice. The bartender we had was great too; we had never had him before on previous Vegas trips. We stayed at Frankie's for awhile, and then headed back to our hotel to freshen up before heading back to the Orleans. When we got back over to the Orleans we watched some music and went to the vendor rooms. I only picked up a hair flower there.
On Friday we went to the Charleston Antique Mall; we had never been there before, but I had heard good things about it. It was a decent sized place, but we didn't end up buying anything there. Before that we went to the Bellagio in the morning, to look at their conservatory & botantical garden. They change their display there seasonally, and we always make sure to stop there on our Vegas trips. The displays are beyond gorgeous and amazing! They had a Japanese spring theme this time.
We went to the Orleans to watch some music, and we went to Balliwick Pub for the first time. We ended up going there three days during our trip. We really liked it there, and they also had a stage with live music going on. The food was good, too. We went to the Peppermill for an early dinner, and then we went to check out their lounge (it's attached to the restaurant). We had tried to check out the lounge last year, but it had been closed for a private party.
The lounge was okay, if a bit of a let down, ha. There was one fire pit inside, and it did give off a lot of heat, but Bob got hot quickly, and we went back to sit at one of the bars in the lounge. After we left there, we headed to Frankie's. It was much busier there, and we could only find seating on a bench (there were no seats at the bar), and the guy who was already sitting on the other side of the bench started talking to us. We talked to him and then his friends for awhile, but itt was really loud in there, making it hard to hear.
In my next blog post I'll write about the remainder of the trip.
