Early March I decided to take a trip to Las Vegas for the weekend. In Part 1 you saw what Vegas looked like in the day. For today’s post you get to see what the Sin City looks like during the night. Also, a little treat into the breakfast life of the city as well at the very end.
You can’t see too far out but man is that a pretty sight.
Couples dancing in the street thanks to this guy.
Dinner! Went back to Paris and had a meal in Yong Kang Street. A mixture of Chinese and Japanese cuisine.
My meal at Yong Kang Street: Stir Fry Chicken w/Udon. Pretty good although I must admit this feels more “American” Chinese food than something authentic. But I can’t complain.
I remember as a kid these religious nuts were ALL over the place. Now these were the only two I saw during my time here. Are they completely wiped out?

Ending my night
Succeeding at GamblingInside Bally’s and going to gamble the rest of my money
First half went to this piece of shit machine. I didn’t see ANYONE come close to winning.
So here’s how the night ended: I brought $100 with me and I was down to my last twenty. I put it in this touch screen Monopoly slot and boy did it made my trip. It was SUPER generous and I believe that is the machine in general. Cause I watched two, separate people come up to this afterwards and they also won a pretty decent amount.
See? I came to Vegas with $100 and I leave fifty dollars richer. Take that Italian Mafia!
Final BreakfastSo thanks to my sister, who went years ago, she recommended me a place for breakfast. Inside Harrah’s you will find a place tucked in the corner called Hash House A Go Go. Apparently they are known for their ENORMOUS portions and she wasn’t kidding. Check out the image below for what I mean.
That’s just one pancake! One! And the eggs/sausage that comes with it are hysterically small in comparison. But it was an incredibly delicious way to end my trip even if I couldn’t finish.
And thats the end of my trip! It was a wonderful, 24 hours in the city and considering how close it is to me (a five hour road trip) it certainly won’t be the last time I come back here. Who knows if I will be as successful at the slots or have a good set of meals. But one thing I do know: My feet will not go through the torture of so much walking. I know there were monorails and other services to go around the strip but I decided to walk through what I could. Let’s just say it might take a while to get used to walking normally…
