When friends are in town one of the things we do for entertainment is to attend tapings of different TV shows because it's a novel activity (for those of us new to L.A.) and well, it's free.  There are a couple of shows that host "giveaways" and a few days before Valentine's Day my friend, Eileen, and I attended a taping of The Talk.  It just so happen that they were giving away items for last minute Valentine's Day gifts and one of things we received was a two night stay at The Mirage in Las Vegas along with two tickets to The Beetles "Love" cirque du soleil show!

So on February 28th Steve and I arrived in Las Vegas after a very long drive for our free stay.  It was my first time to visit Vegas and I was quite surprised by the all the sights.

The next day we enjoyed walking around the strip where we enjoyed a wonderful lunch at a French cafe.   Afterwards, we sat out by the pool while Steve caught up on some work.

  Everything in Vegas is over the top including this mall.

These pictures were taken inside the mall.

Before and after the show we walked around the strip.  Below is a picture of our hotel.

I was glad I got to experience Vegas, but I doubt I'll be returning . . . unless I win another trip!

From Vegas we drove to Costa Mesa to see the play, Wicked, which we loved!  It was a nice change from Vegas!

We drove back to L.A. after the play in order to be back with Walter.  Our new friends, Karen and Alan, took care of him while we were away.  Walter looks like he made some new friends, too!
