Buffalo Thunder is a Hilton Casino and Hotel just to the north side of Santa Fe. It is full of art from the area, and even if you are not a Casino fan, you should stop in for a visit. They have done a great job with this place.
The Stratosphere was my home for the last 7 days. This joint has become my budget hotel of choice in Las Vegas. I really enjoyed my time there, and if you wanted to, you could stay on the property the whole time and have everything you need.
After way too much yummy food in Vegas, I decided a long walk at night would be good for me. I headed South on Las Vegas Boulevard to see what I could find. This reflection of Excalibur was my favorite scene of the night.
While walking and tram riding, I found the Aria to be a beautiful subject for some photos.
The SLS Las Vegas is growing on me. It was Sunday, so I was looking for a nice place to watch some football and grab a bite to eat. Enter Umami Burger. Nothing fancy, but exactly what I was looking for. Truffle Burger, Make ‘Em Manly Fries, Moroccan Gun Powder Iced Tea, and NFL Football on a super big screen were the perfect combination.
You step off the elevator on the 64th floor and you try to maintain your cool. The views at the Mix Lounge will make you want to jump around like when you were a kid. It doesn’t help that the DJ is pumping out tunes and the dance floor with floor to ceiling windows is the first thing on your immediate right. Be cool, stroll out to the balcony, and take a few photos like this place is no big deal. Find a table with the best view of the Las Vegas Strip – there will be plenty of time for eating, drinking, and dancing like a crazy person as the night goes on. 🙂
If you are like me, and you love pizza, check out 800 Degrees in the SLS Las Vegas. You start by viewing the menu while they hand toss your pizza dough. You then select your style of pizza – for me it was Verde, a green pesto pie. Watch as they build your pizza and add the toppings you select – for me, bacon and meatball. Order a salad and a drink while the chef places your pie into the oven. By the time you pay and settle into a table, your awesome creation is ready for you to devour. Yum!
