Or at least that’s what a man at the Venetian hotel passed along to my friends and I, while in search of brunch on our second day in Vegas.
This isn’t going to be a long post, but as a Vegas first timer celebrating my birthday weekend with friends, there were a lot of things that surprised me about this Disneyland for grownups.
It was so clean! Disney is the one other place I know that spends resources on clean up. With all the partying, shows, and people from around the world, Vegas was on point with looking pristine.
Everyone was so nice! I assumed there would be a lot of people super into themselves, but everyone just wanted to have a good time. People smiled at each other. Men held doors open for women. Waiters and waitresses started short conversations with us. There was even one group of women who looked out for me at a pool party when I had a small incident with my swim suit. The kindness of people around us was a welcome surprise.
The food was amazing! It didn’t matter where we ate, I loved the food. Brunch with coffee I didn’t even need creamer for. Buffets with all you can eat crab legs. Hotels with an endless amount of choices for food spots. I came back and had to detox from everything. I’d do it again though.
Lastly, the variety of people who come and how they do Vegas. Old, young, families, bachelors… There are shows, site seeing, gambling, clubs. The weekend I went to celebrate my birthday there was a big Nascar race, Rugby game, MMA fight, and it was the first weekend of Spring Break for many students. So much happens in Vegas, and you can keep it classy if you want!
Of course, as I work in media, I borrowed my friends GoPro for the weekend and had fun remembering my trip from last weekend by putting together the short video below. Though my feet were sore from dancing and I went on a detox from all the food quickly after returning home, it was the best way to ring in a new birthday year!
Shout out to the friends who were down to celebrate! You ladies made it worth it on so many levels. LOVE YOU!
