October 20, 2009

I went to Las Vegas last weekend for this concert!!

Justin Timberlake hosted the Shriners Open Golf Tournament all of last week and ended it with this concert with featured artists Jay Sean, Taylor Swift, Alicia Keys, Ciara, TLC, Snoop, Timbaland and himself.

Then I went to the after party at the Mandalay Bay Beach where Justin Timberlake and Timbaland showed up!

The concert was ah-ma-zing!  The after party was am-ma-zing-er!   Listen for “Carry Out” which is an awesome song.  It will be on Shock Value 2 coming out next month!

This is so unlike me but we didn’t really have time to plan any meals on this trip because we were so busy at the golf tournament, concert and after party.  Right after we dropped Julie, Justin and Kelly off at the airport and right before we returned the rental car, we saw a Sonic.

I have seen commercials for Sonic for many years now but never even knew of any remotely close to where I live.   When I saw the sign, I just knew we had to stop and try it!

It was so weird ordering from your car in the stall and having the waitress bring your food out to you.

We tried a Mocha Chip Java Chiller and a strawberry cream slush.  The mocha shake got a little too sweet for me towards the end but it was delicious and hit the spot!  The strawberry cream slush tasted like a sweeter, slushier version of Guri Guri!!

If I weren’t full from our late lunch that day, I would’ve wanted to get the chicken fingers meal.  Instead, we tried the jalepeno poppers with ranch dressing.  I had one and that was enough for me.  Next time, I’ll probably try the chicken fingers or tots… or just stick to the drinks!  All drinks and regular slushes are half off during their daily happy hour between 2 and 4 PM. : )

Viva Las Vegas: Dos Caminos!

March 24, 2009

Boyfriend and I took a quick trip to Vegas and I got to meet up with my old partner in crime Kellie and her boyfriend Biniam.  Kellie works at the Venetian so she suggested meeting at Dos Caminos in The Palazzo.  Although she had never eaten there before, a lot of her coworkers had highly recommended the place.

The shrimp quesadilla is only on the weekday lunch menu but they made it for us that Saturday since we requested it.  All of Kellie’s co-workers had recommended we try this so Biniam and I both decided to try it.  The quesadilla wasn’t exactly what I expected (I was expecting flour tortillas) but it was so good!  Boyfriend said it tasted like a better version of Taco Bell’s Mexican pizza because it was crunchy. 😛

Boyfriend went with a turkey burrito, which I thought was an interesting selection.  It looks awfully cheesy in this picture.

This dessert platter was brought out to us for free… probably because our waiter almost spilled coffee on Biniam’s lap.  Good thing he missed and it only spilled on the table and chair.

Dos Caminos is known for their guacamole.  We ordered it and gulped it down before I could get a picture of it.  It was excellent and I would definitely get it again!!  We didn’t have the best service here (it wasn’t the worst either) but the food definitely made up for it.
