There is something special about the first few weeks after you buy a new vehicle.
Everytime you close the doors you inhale a newness, and drive with a sense of pride in your choice.
That’s the feeling I had when I checked into the ARIA last night, or should I say this morning.
The flight departed quite late so we didn’t get in until about 1 AM Vegas time which was like 4 AM CST.
It didn’t lessen the thrill at all.
The rooms, with more technology than most cars, are really exceptionally impressive.
I have a strip side view and when the automatic currents slowly open, the sight that is revealed is a lightful sightful.
This is Las Vegas, and I may have one of the best views.
I wondered over to the Monte Carlo next door for lunch and had, what may be the best shrimp appetizer I ever ate.
Named Aucho Chile Shrimp it owns the spice without being overwhelming.
Likewise the spinach salad with dried cranberries, bacon, onion and boursin cheese was also excellent.
I think it was a rasberry type vinegrette but I can’t be sure except to say it was delicious.
I ordered French Fries and they are pre salted a bit too much for my liking but the Pub as this food outlet is called had a lot of excellent items on the menu, and the first two I ate were worth the walk.
