About Me

My photo
Island girl & Vegas junkie. Sharing my obsession of Sin City. Off the strip, on the strip, dining, hotels, & fashion. No fancy schmancy camera (at least not yet) but I hope you enjoy my view of this wonderful playland in the dessert and some fillers here & there of my hermit lifestyle.

It's snowing in Vegas

OMG I wish I was there. We always miss it. We are either a day early or a day late.

Minus 5 Ice Bar at Mandalay Bay



For $30.00 you get a coat, gloves, and shoes and a drink. That is the basic package. Everything there is made out of ice even your drinking glass, pretty cool. Sorry no pics. We were not allowed to take camera's or cell phones because of the degree of Fahrenheit. I personally think they just want you to buy their pictures. Which was not worth the money, quality wise anyway. We were allowed 30 minutes to drink two drinks. We upgraded our package. Yes, there is a time limit there. If it's slow they let you stay a bit longer.

Definitely, check this place out. It's the only one (as of this blog) of it's kind in the US. It opened September 2008 at the Mandalay Hotel

Double Down Saloon






So if you're looking for a venture at great local bar, Double Down Saloon is the place to see. Known for Ass Juice and Bacon Martini.

Ok, the Double Down Saloon entrance looks like the backside of a biker bar where trash should be dumped. With the door cracked open by a bar stool, we peeked in and found some seats at the bar. It was about 2 2:30 it was just us and three other customers and the bar staff. FYI Mr. Bartender is from Hawaii. Anyway, we tried the Ass Juice and only I, tried the Bacon Martini. It sounds horrible and it taste even worse. As you take a sip, the grease just overwhelms your smell. The smell of fermented bacon vodka and grease is not a good combo. Blahh. I think if it was taken as a shot, it would be ok. The grease from the bacon starts to film the glass as the drink sits. So if you go and try the Bacon Martini, be sure to shoot, not sip. Ass Juice is Ass Juice, sort of like a sex on the beach. It’s never made the same. It was about 3:30 and we needed to get going, by this time the bar was full with regulars and a few tourist, which included yours truly. It was a fun time and we will stop by again. Everyone is friendly and the shots keep coming.




Oh, address is 4640 Paradise Road, one block south of the Hard Rock Hotel. As we were looking for this place we circled twice before we realized where it was. The address is Paradise Road, but it is actually in the back. I’ll get back with that.

Killing time, makes a killing


Waiting for someone to use the potty was well worth it. We argued on which restroom was closer to use, but mom prevailed and we went on our way. So I owe my lucky winnings to her stubbornness. It was just a few hands in and this perfect picture came out.

It was time for bed at about 9 pm. when another 4 aces with the kicker showed up. I was back in the game and bedtime was extended to about 2pm. Tried my luck in the money pit. That was fun. Hung out for at least an hour. Got a couple spins on the Wheel of Fortune. Cherries were sleeping. Played Pinball and Take the Money.

4 of a Kind


Wow, this machine is feeling generous. A few hands after my Royal Flush.

Thanksgiving Dinner at Zeffirino in the Venetian Hotel




Perched above the shops at the Venetian is the italian restraurant Zeffirino. We were not able to get window seating, but it was still a wonderful dinner.
