On our way west, we had to pass by Las Vegas, so we decided to visit for a day. We had the BEST stay. We were able to check into our hotel about 11:00am. What a lovely surprise, about 1/2 mile off the strip—Tuscany Hotel and Casino, we highly recommend. Large suite, quiet, very affordable, friendly, efficient staff, outdoor free parking and a coupon book that gave me $7.00 to play my favorite slot machines (which I had fun losing).
First, we drove the Strip to see where we wanted to walk. Then after moving into our room, we walked to the strip to eat lunch. Ended up walking over 10,000 steps and finding Chica Restaurant in the Venetian Casino. ( I had a list after research.) Great late lunch and good story about chef Lorena Garcia. Mac Corn was a dish she prepared on Top Chef. Took Uber back to hotel, bought tickets for the show, Rat Pack (at the Tuscany), laughed ourselves silly.
Next day, ate breakfast at Marilyn’s Cafe in the casino, again, we highly recommend. I ate Egg white omelet with fresh spinach, green peppers, tomatoes and oops, crispy bacon. (10% off with coupon book we were given). Strong coffee maybe to wake you up to gamble more.
On to Utah, after easy TV checkout.
