For those of you who don't know, Jenny and I don't buy gifts for each other for Christmas, Valentine's, Easter, or any other odd reason you can think of. Instead what we do is go over-the-top for birthdays.
We feel that its the only holiday that truly matters. A holiday celebrating simply the fact that you exist. You're here, alive another year, and it's time for those around you to thank you for your precense and for all the things you do. So finally, after tossing around several ideas it seems as though Jenny and I have decided on what to do for her birthday. On what is likely to be her last birthday in Vegas we're going to go all out with a Vegas birthday.
We start the day checking into our new remodeled Widescreen View Room at the Excalibur. Hopefully we'll receive a Strip view and not the classic Vegas mountain/rooftop view. With our hotel check-in we get lots of free perks: 2 VIP Admissions to ROK Vegas AND LAX Nightclubs, 2 Free Pints at the Monte Carlo Brew Pub, a Free Appetizer at Dick's Last Resort AND Company American Bistro, 2-for-1 Breakfast at Il Fornaio, and 2-for-1 tickets to the Tournament of Kings Dinner Show. Not to mention the 25-30% off at Criss Angel's Believe, Lance Burton's Magic, and the Zumanity shows.
Then we'll gamble and drink some more before heading over to the Tropicana where a Mizuno's reservation will be waiting for us. Eating over Hibachi-style grills and classic Japanese Teppan tableside cooking we'll fill our stomachs.
Then if all that wasn't enough we're going to the Comedy Stop at the Trop to catch some up and coming comedians on the Las Vegas Strip. And I can't forget to mention the free drinks we get with our tickets there too!
Finally we'll walk back over to the Excalibur and if we still have any ounce of energy left we'll hit up ROK Vegas, LAX Nightclub or our favorite, Dick's Last Resort. A crash and rude bar, Dick's is an awesome place to grab a fun drink while hammered late night. Don't forget to ask for your paper hat, customized to each recipient, they have bold statements describing the fun faults of the wearer.
Hopefully we can make it back to the room before sun-up and bare witness to the Las Vegas Strip aglow. It looks good in the planning stage, lets see if it can all pan out!
