Day 2 in Las Vegas PDF Print E-mail
Saturday, 06 January 2007 16:00

After a late night last night, we were a little slow at getting ourselves going this morning but by 10:30 we found ourselves at an IHOP on Las Vegas Blvd. for breakfast. The sunshine was welcome and the daytime high reached 16C (61F) so it was great day to do some walking along the strip.

We explored some of the casinos; the Mandalay Bay, the Excalibur, The Luxor and the MGM Grand. We played some games in one of the arcades and “the boys” even “raced” against each other, enjoying other aspects of Vegas besides gambling. While we were at the MGM Grand we learned that Howie Mandell, from Deal or No Deal fame, was performing and there were still good seats available for tonight’s show.

And so tonight we were entertained by Howie Mandell, a fellow Canuk. We have always enjoyed Howie as a comedian and tonight he certainly didn’t let us down; keeping the capacity audience laughing the entire time. Day two in Las Vegas has been a blast so far and we even recouped some of our money lost last night from the casinos, a double bonus!
