A Penn & Teller-Tony Hu Fusion New Year's Celebration In Las Vegas On A High Roller


We started out New Year's Eve 2015 with dinner at Lao Sze Chuan at the Palms in Las Vegas with my girlfriend, my mother, my brother, and my brother's girlfriend.  Lao Sze Chuan is celebrity chef Tony Hu's restaurant.  We enjoyed the food a lot.

We moved the party over to the Hard Rock Hotel after dinner.  Joy and I are enjoying some drinks in the lounge bar.

We watched the fireworks from the pool deck of the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas.

The next day, we went to see Penn & Teller at the Rio Hotel & Casino.

Joy and I went on stage to inspect one of the props before the Penn & Teller Show.

Joy and I tried a "selfie" with Penn, but it did not come out like we planned since he is so tall.

So, we got a regular picture taken by some random dude also.

Joy and I are at the Bellagio in this photo.

Next, we went to the Linq High Roller Ferris Wheel.

My friends Chad and Aileen are pictured with Joy and I inside the ferris wheel.

We did a bunch of those post card machines that are all over the strip now.

Here is another post card at New York New York.

    Joy came out to Las Vegas to be with me for New Year's Eve in 2014-15.  We celebrated New Year's Eve with my mother, brother, and his girlfriend.  My father was overseas on a visiting lecture series.  Afterwards, my friends Chad and Aileen came to Vegas to hang out with us on the 1st of January.  We went to Penn & Teller on the 1st.  The show was really cool, and we met Penn afterwards.  That night, we went to the Fremont Street Experience, and we got the famous shrimp cocktail and pancakes at the Golden Gate Casino.  We stayed at the Gold Coast Hotel & Casino.

    The next day, we gave Joy a tour of Las Vegas.  We parked at Mandalay Bay, and we took the monorail over to Excalibur.  Then, we showed her New York New York before going to the MGM.  Afterwards, we took the tram from Monte Carlo to the Bellagio via City Center.  We went on the new ferris wheel, the High Roller at the Linq next.  Then, we headed over to the Cosmopolitan for dinner at the famous Wicked Spoon Buffet.  The food was not as good as I had expected.  Afterwards, we returned to the Gold Coast for more gambling.  I ended up doing pretty well on craps and slots on this trip!
