My Friday Post: What Happens In Vegas…

It’s Friday. As CIOs clear down their inboxes and tie up loose ends before the weekend, it is time to take a break…

Last week my wife and I went to Las Vegas for a mini vacation/anniversary. It was my wife’s first time to Sin City and my second. I was there in 1999; right before the mega hotels were built. The skyline has totally changed. Unlike other cities like New York or London, Las Vegas is constantly reinventing itself. It truly is an amusement park for adults.

While there we stayed at the Bellagio Hotel. It was an amazing hotel with great food and plenty to do. There really was no reason for us to leave the hotel. I guess that is the point of these mega resorts. We caught the Cirque du Soleil ‘O’ show which merged performer with water and air.

One show that surprised us was Lance Burton’s Magic Show. I am not big fan of prestidigitation but Lance put on an amazing show for the audience. There was plenty of audience interaction and tricks that amazed everyone. The show was a throw back to the old days of Las Vegas when performers would engage with the audience.

Overall we had a great time in Vegas. We gambled a little, lost a little, ate a lot and had a true Vegas experience. It was good to get away from life even if it was for a few days. Back to life now…
