Vegas, baby!

That’s where I am for the next couple of days to celebrate my birthday. Thanks to Yoshi for booking us a suite and also for making the drive to Vegas. I’m so excited!

Before getting to Vegas, we stopped off in Primm to return a few items I had previously purchased at the Old Navy and Gap outlets. I bought a few new things, but I definitely returned more than I bought… so that was cool.

Tonight, we had dinner at Shibuya, which was wonderful. We wanted to dine at craftsteak, but as luck would have it, it is closed the entire time we’re here. (Dinner was courtesy of BossGuy, who wanted to make sure we had a very nice dinner to celebrate my birthday while we were in Vegas).

Here’s me at Shibuya!

I ordered the Roasted Duck Breast with “Ume” Mirin Reduction. Yummy!

Since we’re celebrating my birthday this entire trip, we ordered two desserts:

The Sorbet Selection: Yamamomo Peach, Lychee, Apricot Ginger, Pepper Red Berry and Black Sesame Toffee

and

We’re staying in a spa suite at the MGM Grand which means there is a hu-mongo whirlpool tub in the bathroom.

But tomorrow is spa day, so if it’s possible, I might be spa-ed out by the time we leave Vegas.
