I know its late but…rewind to February 6-10, 2014… I went to Vegas for part 2 of my 30th Birthday celebration with some friends and my boyfriend. It was a blasty blast of course. Unfortunately, due to so much fun, we didn’t take many pictures. I scrounged up the ones I had on my phone to give you a quick recap of what happened 🙂
So my actual birthday celebration (which happened the day after my birthday (January 31), on Feb 1 at Jack Rose) was a blasty blast! A lot more people showed up than I had originally expected which was such a wonderful surprise. Friends I hadn’t seen in years, friends from all over the area as well as from back home in Va Beach/Chesapeake. So needless to say, it was a great time and it was definitely the first birthday where I felt the ‘birthday curse’ has been lifted! Thank goodness!
Ok now for part 2 of birthday fun!
So a few weeks before, Brendan suggested that we go to Vegas for my birthday… and so we did. He made reservations, we got our tickets and we flew out on Thursday (Feb 6th). Three of our friends came with us but flew out later that night/came in the following day.
I love traveling and wish I did it more often. (I keep telling myself I will…I will haha) The only thing missing from my trips is taking my little nugget, Presley with me, but there are just some trips that pups wouldn’t have fun on.
We ended up staying at the Hilton on the strip. We had a lovely/huge suite. Andrew stayed with us since our suite was separated into two rooms pretty much, and Luisa and Albena had a suite on a different floor.
Once we checked in, dropped off our bags, freshened up from the flight, tummies started to rumble so we went and checked out Gordon Ramsay’s Burgr (located in Planet Hollywood Vegas).
We witnessed some drunken antics when we first sat down… Brendan took a photo, I however was too much in shock at the nonsense that was happening that I couldn’t look away. But once orders were placed and food started coming, happyfaces and happy tummies were on their way!
For starters we ordered some Jalapeño poppers… super yummy… super crispy… and with a little bit of a kick. There were 6, needless to say, Brendan ate the majority of them.
The garlic parmesan and truffle aioli french fries were super yum! We should have ordered more of these 🙂
And of course I had to order a burger! I had the Euro Burger. It was super cute, cooked perfectly and super yummy… I wish I wasn’t so full after everything… I never leave room for dessert 🙁 womp womp
None of us actually documented any of our nights out… we were kind of all over the place during the trip but here are a few pictures of what our nights looked like. These were taken at XS and Rose.Rabbit.Lie. (XS is above… we all highly recommend Rose.Rabbit.Lie though)
This one above is from Rose.Rabbit.Lie. It wasn’t nearly as big as the other club/lounges but it was such a good time.
There were a lot of weird things going on. Different acts breaking up the DJ set, interactive stuff and what not.
Here’s a picture of the girls and I (From left to right, Bowties, Albena and Luisa.. and Andrew photobombing us haha)
The boys, Andrew and Brendan 🙂
This is DJ Wiki. She’s their resident DJ and just the cutest little thing. She sent me a cute message after our visit. We’ll definitely be coming back the next time we make a trip out to Vegas.
And that kind of sort of concludes my quick Vegas recap. Next time I’ll make more of an effort to take more pictures. 😀 Share your Vegas and Birthday experiences in the comments below! I’d love to hear about your adventures!
