Michelle and I decided this morning to take Cheryl out for breakfast to the Grand Buffet at MGM Grand — and yes, it was grand! — followed by surprising her with a trip to the salon at MGM Grand for a haircut. She had been hoping/trying all week to find someplace reasonable to get her hair cut and we hadn’t made it yet, so Michelle and I thought we’d treat her and just take her for her birthday. We had the good fortune to arrive at a time that Juan had open and while we drank mamosas Juan did a great job on Cheryl’s hair.
The rest of the afternoon was spent roaming New York New York, eating sushi, touring Excalibur and Luxor — Luxor is amazingly cool — and seeing the Bodies exhibit. The Bodies exhibit was really something to see and I’m glad we went to it. For those who don’t know, they used real cadavers (many of smokers) to show how the body works, head to toe, inside and outside. The very last room had a body that was literally sliced, giving the idea of how an MRI works. It was really quite amazing.
The evening we lucked out and were able to get into Bobby Flay’s Mesa at Caesar’s Palace for supper. Truly amazing meal, absolutely excellent service, but no Bobby Flay. Ah, well. Can’t have everything.
After supper was Cirque du Soleil’s The Beatle’s Love. Wow! There was so much going on at the same time throughout this show it’s hard to follow it all. I know I missed some aspects of it, but what I did catch was a lot of fun. The under the ocean scene was my favourite. And all to the sounds of the Beatles. Very cool!
A monorail ride home ended the evening for me as I had to leave early the next morning. Great day!
