Las Vegas I

Lucas and I are on our annual Thanksgiving Vegas Vacation right now. We spent the weekend in downtown Las Vegas, but most of this week we’ll be in Arizona, with two nights back downtown at the end.

I’m feeling a little sour about our first night’s accommodations. Shortly after we checked in at the Golden Gate Hotel, someone tried to run a test transaction with a company I’ve never heard of on the credit card I used to make the reservation. Fascinating old hotel, but I’d rather stay someplace that doesn’t cause me to spend my morning on the phone with a fraud department.

Saturday we had a really wonderful dinner at Bouchon. Fabulous food, friendly service, entertaining people watching at adjacent tables. I want to go back… as soon as I can afford it.

Our plan from here is a Route 66 adventure, Ash Fork to Topock, returning back to Lucas’ mom’s house in Golden Valley for Thanksgiving. Rusty abandoned gas stations await.
