this place is crazy and all kinds of intense
so far everything we've eaten at the Wynn and Encore has been fantastic but pricey. had french toast for breakfast yesterday. a bit expensive for breakfast but really big portions i couldn't finish it. had a calzone at the pizza place, so good. tuna and egg salad sandwiches on croissants from the cafe... really great midnight snack lol. all vegan
not a ton of choices on most menus but there ARE choices. we're hoping to get in to wazuzu for supper and if we gamble a bit more we might have enough red card points for a free buffet meal.
also had an awesome falafal wrap at the fashion show mall food court, followed by mango and coconut sorbet... so good... both from the uhhh i forget what it's called, great wraps or something like that..
today we looked for chinatown, and yeah totally a let down. we found that veggie delight place for lunch and it was... terrible. the only thing we've had so far this trip that we both didn't like. we just got a few apps to share and couldn't finish anything. we were the only people there and they have no music or anything so the owners are like standing there watching you eat in silence, really awkward. the tofu "nuggets" was microwaved cubes of tofu in some kind of sauce. sauce wasn't bad but tofu was rubbery and mostly cold. dumplings were undercooked, lukewarm and very bland. spring rolls weren't horrible but not especially good. don't recommend this place at all
luckily we found Ronald's Donuts afterwards which makes up for it, holy cow!!! we got a half dozen including 2 fancies for just over 5 bucks, not bad at all, and they are so freaking good! unbelievable. i'm trying real hard to resist eating like all of them right now lol. totally worth the bus ride down there
tonight we're going to see KA. wanted to see O but it's just too expensive, or Blue Man Group but we've seen it a couple times in toronto and have never seen a cirque show. the tix for tonight booth at the mall had a bit of a deal for KA so what the heck. show's at 9:30, hoping to hit up happy hour somewhere along the way before we go pick up our tickets and then we'll lurk around the MGM casino while we wait for the show. figure we'll get our 24 hour bus passes to get down there and then use them to hit fremont experience tomorrow. anything else worth checking out downtown?
we need to hit the pool at least once and we haven't been to the venetian yet i hope we can squeeze everything in but if not oh well gives us a reason to come back.
this hotel is amazing by the way. definately recommend it.
oh and hubby and i are both pleasantly surprised by a few things in vegas... the sidewalks are so CLEAN! for so many pedestrians around at all hours we didn't expect everything to be quite so clean. very nice. the people are so nice... we figured we'd have to dodge lots of drunk partying d-bags but we haven't really seen too many, most people seem to be like us, grab a couple drinks here and there but not really out to get hammered and act stupid. the strip has such a rep for hardcore partying that we expected to see a bit more... shenanigans lol. what else...
ah the only complaint really is the hordes of mexicans handing out advertisements for escorts. the card flickers. omg wow these guys are irritating.
