We're back from vegas....It was OK, but lost too much money....

My Aunt, that we were going to visit, fell the day before we left. Being 82 that's not good. She hit her head and got 8 stitches, broke a rib and her shoulder. Apparently she hasn't been eating right and had virtually no sodium in her body. Consequently she was experiencing delerium for a few days before and after the fall. In the hospital they normalized that and she was coherant again by the time we left. We went to see her every day for a few minutes and spent some time with my cousins who flew in from Washington DC and California.

I took everyone out for dinner at a BBQ place, "Lucilles". That was some of the best BBQ I've ever had. Definately try it next time you go to Vegas. " 3/15/2007 - 2007 Readers Choice Awards - Las Vegas Weekly
Lucille's Smokehouse Barbecue, 2245 Village Walk Drive Henderson, NV.
Is it the sweet lemonade in the extra-large mayonnaise glasses? Is it the pillowy, you-can't-eat-just-one buttermilk biscuits? Is it hickory-smoked baby-back ribs so plentiful you can feed an offensive line? Is it the finger-licking chicken (gimme seconds!) or the justly spiced beef tri-tips (waitress, another round!)? Is it a catfish sandwich so big that the accompanying fries feel like gluttony? Is it the cobbler with what seems like an orchard full of peaches? YES!" Click here for Lucilles
It is located in a new area called "The District". It features walk thru streets, restaurants and shops with condos above them. It has a new really fancy Casino at one end,

I highly recommend this, but bring MONEY. Dinner for 5 with only 1 beer or glass of wine each, ran $208.00, $250. with tip. The hotel/casino runs minmum $139. a night, but I heard it really is pretty nice (We didn't stay there). We were at the Rio, which was pretty nice. I particularly liked the floor to ceiling Glass wall facing the strip. All in all, we had a pretty good weekend. A little less hospital drama and a bit more lovin (Ok, I butchered that song line) and our weekend would have been great. Next time I'm going to take the helicopter tour of the Hoover Dam for 25 bucks. I keep saying I'm going to, but next time for sure.

Curiouoso* getting ready to sack out, and wishing for more of the incredible dreams I've been having. No, I won't bore you with any more, but there better than dinner and a movie! P.S. I forgot to mention I bought a Simi Cabernet 2003 at Costco. It was less than $20.00 and was to die for. I used to drop by the Simi tasting room almost every day, years ago and got to know the tasting room people. They used to turn me on to tastes of special vintages and sell me wine at the winery discount (for fellow vintners) 50% off. I really liked them but haven't had a Simi Cab for years. Go buy it and try it! I also got my wine package from Van Ruiten in Lodi. I love the 2004 Old Vine Zinfandel Library Reserve! Click here to order some!
