So This Is It? The End Of The World In Las Vegas

By December 21, 2012

Follow me on:

Welcome to Las Vegas sign

Doomsday predictions have the world ending today so I figured why not get you to Las Vegas just in case these freaks actually get something right. Don't worry, these suggestions are only for today because my kid has a water polo tournament tomorrow that I cannot miss and I told my wife that I would finally fix the faucet in the restroom. I mentioned the end of the world to her and she said she would end my world if I did not take care of my to do list.

So, the world is not ending today but we can use this as an excuse to have too much fun in Las Vegas and apologize in the morning for our bad judgement. If I was going to have one last meal on the planet I'm thinking I would have two. I would drop into L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon for a quick 6 course snack and then have a longer meal at Le Cirque at Bellagio Las Vegas. Does that seem excessive? It should, if the world was actually ending no one would care that you are being selfish.

I would have to have a few drink so I would stop into Public House at Venetian and have at least 3 beers from their massive list. I would walk into Sage at ARIA and have their "Last Word" cocktail and then walk next door to Comme Ca and have a "Thyme for Bourbon."

While a night at a Las Vegas nightclub might be a good way to end the world I think I would rather see a show or two. I would catch The Beatles LOVE because you need a little Paul, John, Ringo and the other guy if it is in fact the end. My second show would be Absinthe and I would get up and tell Penny Pibbets that I actually want to marry her right as the world ends.

As the clock ticks down on the world there really is no better place to be than the Bellagio Fountains. I might choose to see the final show from inside HYDE Bellagio but the view from the Las Vegas strip is just as good if not better.

You can come along with me for my final tour of Las Vegas as the world ends as long as you know after midnight I have to get home because our dog requires one last walk before bed time and like I said before, I have to wake up early in the morning for a water polo tournament and you don't want to be hungover with a bunch of soccer moms talking your ear off.
