Vegas 2011 - Day Two

We really packed a TON into day two.  We started off with brunch at Mesa Grill at Caesar's.  This is a Bobby Flay restaurant and another recommendation by Jenni.  It was another fantastic meal.  We split a breakfast quesadilla appetizer and then each had an entree.  Needless to say, we did not eat again until dinner.


Jason's plate, a ranchero breakfast tostada with a side of chorizo


Our next stop was at the Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay.  I really wanted to do this so everyone humored me, but it was really great- so was Mandalay Bay.  I want to stay there next trip! 

My embarrassing moment of the trip was at the Shark Reef when I leaned over to touch a sting ray and my sunglasses fell in!  I didn't want to get in trouble (I'm a dork) so I shot my hand in to retrieve them, scaring the string ray, but mostly me, causing even more of a commotion.  Everyone around laughed at me!



I clearly didn't know how to wear this hat
 After the Shark Reef we went to New York, New York to ride the roller coaster.  I was excited for it, Jason was not, but then roles reversed.  Jason loved it, I hated it.  I guess my love of roller coasters left me in college.  After having my head banged around, I wanted a boot from Coyote Ugly! 

So touristy of us I know, but my boot filled with pina colada was great and it got me tons of stares all day!


Amanda opted for the Football filled with blue daiquiri


Also, during the trip, I realized that I love posing with statues:



That night, we headed to Koi for dinner at Planet Hollywood.  Jason and I went to Koi during our last trip so we wanted to go back. Carter was a great sport for letting us indulge in sushi that night. 




After dinner, we headed to The Mirage to see The Beatles LOVE show which was SO WONDERFUL!  I highly recommend this to anyone and everyone! 



After the show, we gambled a bit more, but I was losing so we had a "fourth" meal around 1am at California Pizza Kitchen at The Mirage and headed to bed.  Jason and I had not seen 1am in a while and even outlasted Carter and Amanda.  Proud moment.
