Las Vegas fini

This gives some idea of the scale of the MGM Lion at the entrance to the MGM Grand complex. Just a tad bigger than the one in the Lobby. This was taken Thursday morning when the temperature was heading towards 95 farenheidt.

The New York, New York hotel and casino is directly across The Strip from the MGM - linked by a convenient skywalk - note the roller coaster. Thursday evening we ate at Emeril's, one of approximately 17 eateries at the MGM. The food and service were both superb and Geoff even managed to find an "Emeril" necktie. This brings his collection to around 200......

A view of the bar in the center of Emeril's.

It's unfortunate this is so dark but hopefully it gives a general idea of the layout of the Hollywood Theatre at the MGM where we saw -

Yes! Tom Jones. Photographs during the show are a big non-no so I restrained myself. His voice is still in prime form and the ladies are still throwing underwear at him! This was the promo shot just outside of the theatre entrance.
The rather spectacular facade of the Excalibur at night.
Lady Liberty herself as seen on the corner of the New York, New York complex Thursday evening.

Friday morning came way too fast. A distant view of the moon from my window seat.

And a little closer view. It was a wonderful vacation and a great way to mark our Silver Wedding Anniversary.
