The Big game in the southwest


Im not into football but when I read that in Vegas the Superbowl was like a national holiday I said why not? My boyfriend is a football fanatic anyway so it would have been a fun experience for him as well. We left February 4th and stayed for four days.

We initially ordered a 4 door sedan and we were told it would be a Prius which was fine for us since we always like to go the inexpensive route but when we got there the lady was trying to upset us. Apparently they anticipated more people coming in to rent cars since it was Super Bowl weekend. She was willing to give us a fancier newer car for a fraction of the actual rental price. For $40 more than the Prius we got a beautiful black 2016 convertable Camaro. Nothing better than riding around the west coast with your top down enjoying the warm weather!

We decided to watch the superbowl at south point hotel. It was down the street from the street and recommended by a few people. The hotels on the strip would have cost us $150+ per person but South Pointe was absolutely FREE. Not only was it free but the foot was reasonably priced!

Hot dogs $1

Wings $5

Nachos $3

Pizzza $2

They had about 3 Big Game parties going on at different locations at the hotel. There was a mixture of Falcons and Patriots fans in at the party and it was a fun crowd. The DJ had music going during certain parts of the game which made it lively.

We went to the Art District downtown to check out the cool art they had. I have an admiration for art especially graffiti wall art. They had tons of art to look at and i just had to take pics in front of some of them! I just bought a brand new Canon camera so I was on a mission to capture some cool pics while I was in Vegas.

I MISS ROSS! In Arizona where im from we had Ross everywhere and when I moved to NYC they were no where to be found so like a nice boyfriend who cares about my shopping habits (hehe) I went shopping at Ross with some of his craps winnings :) The Ross’s in Vegas are HUGE they are 2 story and you can easily spend hours in there.

I havent had good Mexican food since I left Arizona and BOY WAS I HAPPY to see real authentic mexican food! We grabbed a bite to eat for lunch at Casa Don Juan Mexican Restaurant downtown on freemont and it was so good. I ordered Enchiladas, mexican rice, with a horchata on the side! My stomach was very happy that day.

You can’t visit Vegas without running into some street performers which is always cool to see. Everyone showscases their talent (for a tip of course). This was a very enjoayable trip and im sure we will be back at some pint during the end of the year!..until we meet again Vegas!!
