Viva Las Vegas! Part 1

Expedia.ca had a glitch a few weeks ago where they took $300 (more like $281 according to my credit card statement) off any vacation package to Cancun, New York or Vegas. I managed to score a vacation package to Vegas for less than $100, and from Dec.13-16 I was in “The City of Entertainment” or as others like to refer to it- “Sin City” with my best friend.

Lou Dawg’s Southern Sandwiches

I’ve literally seen it all- from people in the demographic range of 19-65, letting loose on these hot summer days with their unlimited beer, going tent-to-tent, fillin’er’up with almost any recognizable beer you can imagine (over 120 vendors)!
