Las Vegas Vacation: Sequins, Cirque de Soleil Beatles Love and a bar in a Chandelier!
Get ready for sequin overload...you've been warned.
This was the view we had from our room. We even saw a couple of people do the jump off of the top of the Stratosphere and we could see the ride on the very top going up and down. We didn't really do much our first full day, we walked to McDonald's for breakfast, got some things at Walgreens and spent most of the day relaxing and researching where we should go to dinner.
We ended up grabbing a great happy hour at the sushi place in our hotel "Katsuya".
We shared: Yellowtail Sashimi with Jalapeno, a California roll, and a spicy tuna roll. I also had a watermelon cucumber mojito. All delicious! Sadly, I forgot to take a picture of our beautiful sushi, hence the empty trays.
Next we got glammed up (well, I did) to go see the Cirque de Soleil Beatles Love show at the Mirage. I have dreamed of seeing this show ever since I first heard about it!
Ready for a night on the town!
P.S. I only saw like 4 other people wearing sequin dresses during our entire trip. Las Vegas Tourists: step up your game!!!
We did spend some time in the casino at the Mirage after picking up our tickets and waiting for the show to start. The line to get in to the show once the doors opened was so long!
Inside the theatre.
They shot confetti out on us!
After the show was over. It was so colorful and there were so many cool acrobatic stunts and ariel work, and dancing. A feast for the eyes, and obviously the music was amazing.
All you need is love.
I got that ;)
To end our night we went to the Chandelier Bar at the Cosmopolitan. This was another dream of mine! A bar inside a chandelier?? Sigh. Unfortunately, the Cosmopolitan looked a lot closer to the Mirage than it actually was, and by that point in the night, I was tired and my cough was starting to act up, so we didn't even get a drink or explore. We snapped some pictures and then grabbed a cab back to our hotel! It was worth the walk though to finally see the beautiful Chandelier Bar & be told by some random homeless guy that I was beautiful :)
Las Vegas, a sparkle and glitz lovers dream!
