Vegas Day Two and some more

Okay I already gave a quick rundown of some Vegas stuff so I'm going to skip over Day One since we really didn't do much and basically just felt crazy from the whole trip getting there. We basically checked in, did some gambling in the hotel and just grabbed some food there.

The next morning we woke up ready for a day of relaxation and fun. We started out by heading to the hotel pool where we meet up with my friend from college, Catfish. (Not his real name and the story is way too long to tell but we'll be calling him Catfish)

The hotel pool was absolutely stunning. There were actually 5 pools situated in the large courtyard. One large and four smaller pools that had beautiful fountains in the middle.

We grabbed some chairs and hung out by the pool for a few hours. I was on vacation so I felt the need to have a strawberry daiquiri that probably filled my calorie quota for the day but hey...its vacation.

The daiquiri was awesome! One of the best I have ever had- super fruity. Although everything jut taste better on vacation :) It was a scorching hot day and after about 2 hours, we were done with the sun and needing some good food. We decided to walk across the street to Cesar's and get some seafood at Joe's Seafood Prime Steak and Stone Crab.

Okay..the thing about Vegas is that everything is HUGE! It seriously took us almost an hour of walking around Cesar's to finally find Joe's. We were starving when we showed up and decided to order a big lunch. Mr T and I split the Blackened Mahi Mahi sandwich, lyonnaise potatoes and 5 large stone Crab Claws. Look at these huge claws!

There was so much meat inside we were barely able to finish it all. The claws came with Joe's famous mustard sauce for dipping. I enjoyed the mustard sauce but honestly just a little butter is really all you need with the sweet meat of the crabs. The lyonnaise potatoes were perfectly crisped and the Mahi Mahi sandwich was full of flavor without being too spicy. It was an excellent lunch and we basically rolled out of the restaurant we were so full. We walked around a little bit more and then decided to head back to the Bellagio to do some gambling and relax.

We ended up meeting Catfish at our hotel and decided we had done enough of the Strip for one day and wanted some more action. It's kind of rare to know someone who lives in Vegas and can take you to some non-touristy stuff.So off the strip we went and down to a couple of bars.Now I'm not going to talk to much about the night because..well I'm not sure how much of it I can actually explain. It was a little crazy!

At the Bellagio we had been paying about $12 a drink for a beer or cocktail(when we weren't gambling)You're standard overpriced hotel stuff.

The first bar we went to we ordered 3 beers and 2 shots of whisky (no whisky for me but the men felt like going a little nuts). Total bill for that round? $9.00. You better believe we took full advantage of this!

After probably too many rounds we decided to head to another bar, which may be one of the shadiest bars I have ever been to in my life. I can't even get into describing the place but it was definitely the underbelly of Las Vegas. It was great! We definitely saw lots of things they don't tell you about in Trip Adviser! Well suffice it to say I woke up Friday morning and felt like a truck was slamming into my head repeatedly. $9.00 rounds hurt the next day.

We had such a big lunch at Joe's we never ate any dinner, which in retrospect, was a very bad idea when you're drinking like a fish.Neither Mr. T and I could make it out of bed. So we did the only thing we could do when staying in a five star hotel.Order room service!

Room service to me is the absolutely epitome of decadence. Growing up, my family traveled a lot and never once did we indulge in this treat. So even though my skull felt like it was about to split in half I was super excited for our meal. Here's the gorgeous layout.

Fresh Flowers on the table, butter engraved with the Bellagio logo, juice freshly squeezed. I was in heaven! I ordered the two egg breakfast with bacon and home fries.

The bacon and eggs were the much needed greasy food my body required to recover from a night of drinking cheap beer and liquor. Mr. T ordered the sirloin burger.

The burger was okay but had a little bit too much spice. It tasted like they put some Worcester sauce into the meat and maybe a little too much onion powder. However, it did the job. The best part about the whole meal? Mini condiments!

I have no idea why mini things make me laugh so much. I think it's a girl thing. Give me something and make it miniature and I'll love it no matter what. After the meal I felt a TON better and was able to actually have a productive day. More on that later.
