May 22 We picked up Karen from her cousin's white coat ceremony (woohoo, congratulations, Blinda!!) and headed on our way to Las Vegas. We braved LA traffic for six hours to get to America's playground.
Once we arrived to the hotel, we scurried to an Oyster Bar that was recommended by Karen. There was a roughly two hour wait, and Karen said it was worth it. So we took turns waiting in line (although Karen graciously took the majority of the line time).
Haley played roulette, and I dabbled my feet in slots. We dined on delicious seafood, and then we lost money, more or less.
Karen made out the best, making a significant profit. Considering this trip has haunted her with the least lucky situations, it was certainly fitting that she got a break in Vegas.
I came out with a loss, but it wasn't too bad. I had my limits, and I stayed within them... More or less. (Don't worry, Grandma, I'm not a gambler now, but if you want to bet on tomorrow's Pirates game... You let me know ;) )
Haley won the least. As in not at all. Check out her evaluation at her website --> http://www.haleywisniewski.com/
We returned to the hotel after a rousing night of just the most fun. It was wonderful to escape from the outside world and the ever exhausting to do list and just hang out with my friends. We were all in fairly good spirits, enjoying Vegas.
I really, really liked Vegas. But alas, I should never go back. Ever.
