Kinda creepy - that prospector

Our friend Nellie starring in "Candy and the Canes" on Fremont St. She was awesome!
Lamb Shank at Rosemary's - Sundays are half-off bottle of wine night.
A trio of creme brulees! This was another excellent meal at Rosemary's - its worth the trek off the strip.
Beef Carpaccio at Rare 120 - the steakhouse in Hard Rock Hotel - Mondays are half off all food on the menu!
Kobe meatballs - Rare 120
Enormous pork tenderloin sandwich at Hash House A Go Go. They serve "twisted farm food" as seen on Man Vs. Food. It would take Adam Richman to eat this whole thing.
Kiwi Watermelon lemonade - delightfully refreshing. Could only be improved upon with vodka ;)
Dave ordered blackberry granola pancakes - also huge and yummy
I was thrilled to finally get a chance to tour the Neon Boneyard - where old vegas signs live on
Silver slipper, and an edge of La Concha motel
The big yellow thing is a pack of M&Ms from the M&M world.

I asked the tour guide if the Vegas Tam O Shanter was connected to the LA restaurant of the same name, but he wasn't sure.
Our tour guide, Paul, was very knowledgeable. He also warned us not to lick the signs as they contain lead paint.
Two sassy ladies

Note the silver nugget - I guess it was cheaper to stay at the Silver Nugget vs The Golden Nugget
I saw Wayne Newton perform at Stardust
One time when I stayed at Stardust, there was a BBW convention going on.
Kat hails Caesar

Sadly, the Liberace museum is no more.
Big skull from Treasure Island
They call him mullet man - from a pool hall
J is for Julie
K is for Kat
I was excited to see they were preserving the La Concha motel. They painted a mural that showed the reflection of the Stardust sign, since the hotel was located across the street from Stardust, right by Riviera and Peppermill.
