Rick's Roadshow: Las Vegas, Revisited.

Last week I was back in Fabulous Las Vegas attending a pet industry trade show. I've been so busy that I've scarcely had time to write much, although I did manage to snap a few photos worth sharing here. This first photo above left is of the Luxor hotel and casino. If you've never been to Vegas, it is the city of lights and sights. On one street you can find all sorts of themes: an Egyptian style pyramid, replicas of a NY city skyline, the Eiffel Tower, St Mark's Square in Venice, and Cesar's Palce (sort of). One night I had a roof top dinner with friends and enjoyed this spectacular view of the famous strip, overlooking the Luxor pyramid. It is quite the sight to see.
The next night was sushi at a hot restaurant called Shibuya, located at the MGM Grand hotel. Regular readers know I like some types of sushi, but when it gets too wierd I stop eating. Lucky for me there were mostly more "normal" types of sushi. They had such interesting presentations in everything they served. Check out these two platters- so colorful and inviting. Too bad some of it was slimy, raw fish, I was really craving a steak.



All in all, it was a fun evening. Later we went out for a quick drink, when I took this photo below. I just like the way the lights blurred.

It seems artsy without being too psychadellic. Anyway that's all for this post. I'm in Boulder, Colorado today so busy as a bee once again. Thanks for stopping by.

Being an old foggey...it has been many many MANY years since I was in Las Vegaa...It was a different town then. It was---believe it or not---A Small Town, back then....And great great fun! It was the days when the guys with broken noses still ran Vegas! It was definitely NOT a place for children...But it sure was fun!
I wouldn't know it at all now!
When was I there last? 1961! LOL!
I started going in the mid 1950's....The Hotel Rooms cost nothing and the food was really inexpensive.....The money was made at 'the tables'....."Chuckwagon"--a Buffet, was served ALL night in the Lounge and entertainers played in those lounges all night long...It was great!
