Vacation Part 3
Tuesday seemed to get a bit better. Carrie and I woke up early and walked to the strip to find lunch. We ended up going into Treasure Island. Now, just to be clear, all of the hotels on the strip can be a bit confusing. Once you enter, you are basically smack dab in the casino featured inside. You have to search and scour to find your destination, like the check in desk or a restaurant. Ok, so back to Treasure Island; We walked in and saw the sign for restaurants. We followed the arrows and signs, which lead us to Kahuna ville. I presume this is suppose to be a mock of Margarita ville, but we didn't care. We decided to try this restaurant out. It seemed really nice, and not too busy. We did have to wait a few minutes, but that's with any place you go in Las Vegas. (Except for your subways or fast food places). We decided to share a chicken wrap. The description said that it came with a Guacamole and Ranch dipping sauce. I am not a fan of Guacamole, but that stuff was GOOD!!! The combination of the two together was an excellent match up. The chicken wrap was also really good, and the portion size was great! We were both filled up just from the wrap! So, Kahuna ville was the first Vegas restaurant to get our two thumbs up!
After we ate, we decided to walk around a bit. We tried to get a glimpse of the water show at Bellagio. We caught the end of the show as we were walking across the walkway over the road. The song was something by Celine Dion, So we were not really impressed. I'm not sure if it is just me, but when I think of a water show that was mixed to music, I expect something more classic.
After some more walking, we ended up going back to our room and taking a nap. Our bodies were not set to the new time zone, so we were tired. Carrie decided to remain in the room, and I set up a meeting with a local to check out some of the bars around town. We first checked out the Freakin Frog. That was a pretty nice place to go! There was live jazz, good beer, and a nice crowd. Afterwards, we set off to the Funhog, which was a nice bar as well. There was a good crowd there, but no entertainment. Although, it was Tuesday night, so entertainment may not have been happening till the weekend. All in all, Tuesday was a blast, and seeing the city away from the strip was pretty fun!
