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!
