“And now…. ” as the late great Frank Sinatra was oft heard to warble “….. the end is near, and we must face the final curtain” …. for tomorrow we must sadly leave Last Vegas and return happily to Wolverhampton…..
But not, before going out with a mahoooooosively mahoooosive bang in Freemont Street!! We started with a proper “last supper” at The Golden Gate as recommended by Charlene (our Valley of Fire Guide), opting for a round of their world famous 99c shrimp cocktails …… nom, nom, nom ….. followed by meat loaf, mash and really, really thick gravy, with a humongous side of mahooosive onion rings ….. nom, nom, nom, nom, but no dessert as we were stuffed to our very rafters!!!!
And then ….. we went out into Freemont Street to see and hear the live bands playing on three giant stages positioned along the street, walk amongst a multitude of Elvis’s as they went about their nightly duties, see all the dancing girls AND finally see the mahooosive light shows they have every hour on the hour on a humungous LED video screen canopy that covers the whole of the street …… something we had deliberately saved until our last night ….
OMG, OMG, OMG …….. it did not disappoint!
We just lay on the floor, legs and arms akimbo, and looked up ….. at eight o’clock we saw The Doors, at nine o’clock we saw Bon Jovi and then at ten o’clock we saw Queen, the show we that had really been waiting for …….. OMG!
America and Last Vegas we LOVE you ……
And as to what our joint fortune telling reading said about a possible return ……. well that would be telling!!!
But Viva, Viva, Viva, Viva Last Vegas !
