Vegas Day 2: more awesomeness

This is all from Monday evening, which was pretty excellent. Obviously.

But first, look at who we found in Paris:

A day on the Strip can make a couple cats hungry, and we weren't about to spend the $$ to eat in the hotel/casinos. We had been driving around trying to find a Capriotti's sandwich shop, when we finally found one, it was closed! (this happened to us the next night too) No worries, In-n-out was right next door.

I think it's just obligatory to eat at In-N-Out if you're in a town that has the restaurant. I've actually eaten there 3 times, all in Vegas, but this trip was the tastiest. I think because I wasn't concerned about comparing it with Dick's, I was mostly concerned about getting the double double cheeseburger into my belly.

Then, off to the Pinball Hall of Fame. You can guess which one of us put this spot on the itinerary. BUT... even though that wasn't me, I actually had a lot of fun. Turns out sucking at video games doesn't mean sucking at pinball.

Quarters are good for other things, too.Look at all the machines! There were 3 or 4 rows just like this with new (Batman Dark Knight) and old (those were the cheap ones = the ones I played = more quarters for m&ms) pinball games. I don't remember which one Rob is playing here. He was pretty good, not great, but good. Turns out being awesome at video games doesn't mean being awesome at pinball. I tried getting video of his really good games, but the pressure of the camera being on made him lose 100% of the time. Kind of funny.

We also found Medieval Madness - I had learned earlier in the week that Tina Fey and Scott Adsit (plays Pete Hornberger on 30 Rock) are the voices on the game. You totally can't tell, though.

We recommend you go there next time you're in Vegas. When you do, this will be waiting for you.

Correction...I am a poor poor pinball player.

They have an In-N-Out Burger in St. George. I think Steve was disappointed that we didn't find the time to eat there. We still have one more meal possibility tomorrow, but we also have Cafe Rio burritos in the fridge that need to be finished.
