FOMONomad: Vegas Photo Album

Here are some other things we did in Vegas.

They are for sale everywhere and the size of a baby's head, which is unpleasant to think about when they are going crunch in your mouth. They're also $13 a pop, but so worth it.


2. On a related note: EATING, EATING, EATING

Tom Colicchio's CraftSteak was disappointing. My $56 "medium" filet mignon came out gristly and brown, and the local farm greens salad was just...lettuce. But on the way to the bathroom, I saw Chace Crawford at a side table! He was wearing a white fedora and sitting with his face toward the door in that sort of "Oh God, don't notice me, please notice me" way. Oh, Nate Archibald. Evening redeemed.

Best meal of the trip? Serendipity. Or In and Out Burger. Matt had never even been there before.

3. SAYING YES TO EVERYTHING

Yes, I will go explore a great timeshare opportunity right on the strip! Sure I'll play another round of roulette! Okay creepy silent man, I'll take ALL your sketchball prostitute business cards! How about a show? A Jell-o shot at 10 a.m.? Another donut? Yes, yes, yes. I love being a piggy.

4. ATTENDING THE SHOW THE CLASSY PEOPLE AT THE TIMESHARE COMPANY SENT US TO AT A SUPER DISCOUNT ("Sexy Couples Entertainment")

It was every bit as great as it looks.

5. MAKING FRIENDS WITH EVERYONE





Thank you to the maids at the Venetian, who were no doubt delighted to find our room strewn with candy apple crumbs, bottles, and all the "So You Are a Senior Citizen With a Gambling Problem" pamphlets I hoarded from Harrah's; to McCarran International for being my new third favorite airport (there is no cooler approach to the runway in this country); to the Grandview at Las Vegas for all the free donuts; and finally to Matt for the whole trip. What a Christmas present! Vegas is great!

  2. Oh she did. She did. But I think she was mad at her new husband, too: they had only just been married 20 minutes before, and already they were just hanging out in front of Sephora, looking lost. Here comes Anna to save their marriage!!
