Spent last weekend in Las Vegas. It was for Chris’s bachelor party. I hadn’t been to Vegas since I was about 17.
That is one insane town. I got there Friday afternoon. By Sunday morning, I had had a total of maybe 8 hours of sleep for the entire trip and I was ready to go home. But it was fun.
I took a shuttle from the airport to the Riviera, where we were all staying. Met up with Chris and Erik. It had been a long time since I last saw Erik — probably something like 6 years. So that was good.
I want to go back sometime with Kelly, but I definitely learned that Vegas exists to take your money. That’s all it’s there for. I didn’t gamble a penny and it still cost me. I had to actually be as frugal as possible since I’m moving very soon and I still spent a hefty chunk.
That said — if you go to Vegas and you have even an ounce of nerd in you, definitely check out Star Trek: The Experience at the Hilton. It was a blast. Way more fun than I thought it would be.
There are plenty of stories to tell about this trip. I’ll wait until more pics roll in to tell some of them, though.
