I realized I’ve been to Vegas more for work then for play. Which I’m ok with ’cause partying in Vegas is not really my thing. I have one solid day in me, then I’m on my old lady vibes. This time I went to Vegas to help my friend David who is a balloon artist. David and I went to grad school together and looking back I don’t think we thought either of us would be doing what we’re doing but here we are lol. I love helping him with his projects and he ended up getting an awesome gig in Vegas building a booth for the Surkus app at the Nightclub and Bar Tradeshow.
We only had a little bit of time to explore but we made the best of it. Before we went to build the installation, we woke up early to try a popular spot called SkinnyFats located off the strip. I’m not sure how David learned of it but I’m so happy he did. The menu is comprised of two sides: basically the “skinny” side and the “fat” side. One side is more health conscious and the other is more delicious conscious. Both sides look delicious though. I chose the healthy side and got tofu scrambled eggs (blame it on my vegan sister and vegetarian parents). It was really good and I also got a fresh juice, “liquid defense” which has orange, carrot, apple, lemon, lime and basil and I felt like it gave me energy for the day.
After breakfast, we spent most of the day building the balloon installation. I mean I have no idea what I’m doing with balloons but I just follow David and pretend I’m an expert. I think I’m a good helper cause this is the 2nd one I’ve helped with and we have a third one coming up in Chicago really soon! (pats self on the back)
When we were done building the installation (success) we decided to head to dinner before our flight home. We literally spent 24 hours in Vegas. We picked the worst time to go to dinner (5pm during a tradeshow) so everywhere was packed. The Venetian is my favorite place to eat in Vegas, there are so many restaurants in one strip many owned by famous chefs.
We opted for a spot called Public house and I got the tuna tar tar, endive salad, and brussel sprouts ( I know I know so healthy! lol). A lot of times I like to eat healthy when traveling because all the running around and pressure from the plane messes with my stomach so I like to keep it light a breezy. The food was delicious and before we knew it, it was time to board our flight!
Quickest Vegas Trip ever. Next stop, Chicago!
