Viva Las Vegas--Part III

This will be my last Las Vegas post...awwww! If you've been following my previous posts, you may have asked yourself if we actually did any gambling and your answer is, YES! We had fun playing little bits here and there. We would lose a little, win a little, nothing big. Then the last evening we were there, Jeff finally hit on his number 8 playing roulette and won about $200. We figured we just about broke even as far as what we spent on gambling. We didn't go to win, we went to have a good time and that was accomplished.
We did A LOT of walking while we were there. Taking a cab anywhere, even a few blocks, was a minimum of $10, so we used the feet God gave us and pounded a little pavement. For lazy people like ourselves this was quite the task. It did give us a great opportunity to take pics here and there and all over Vegas. Sigfried and Roy's tiger tried to attack me while walking on the strip one day.We stayed at the Paris hotel and casino and it was beautiful inside and out. It features a miniature version of the Eiffel Tower, if you really want to call it that and a large replica of a hot air balloon. The restaurants and shops inside and made to look like the streets of Paris with the ceiling painted like the sky. It was a really cool atmosphere and felt very relaxed.We ate at a lot of great places; the little patisserie in the hotel; La Brassiere, where Jeff experienced a Kobe beef burger for the first time; the ESPN zone; and Stack at the Mirage. The one place we ate that we did NOT enjoy was Ah Sin in our hotel. It was supposed to be great sushi/Japanese steak house. We did enjoy the sushi we had, but the service was terrible, the atmosphere was hot and noisy, and the main courses really weren't great. We entertained ourselves instead by coming up with a fictional character whom we named Soy Frog. I know, original!
