Jenny had to work Friday morning and then go to an interview, so I pretty much stayed at her place and relaxed. And oh, I totally forgot to mention that this is the first time I've seen her apartment/condo!!! It is so cute and so Jenny. It's just a small one bedroom, but it has wood or stone floors, a walk in closet, patio, laundry area AND the most amazing view of the mountains. Needless to say it was great to just chill there for a while and not run around. All the sightseeing and "go go go" mentality was really starting to catch up with me.
After she got back, we went to the South Point casino and hotel for some very yummy Mexican food. This place was great because you got chips with salsa, but also guacamole and bean dip. Love the guac. After that, we came home and rested (she barely got any sleep) and then got ready for the Cut Copy show at the House of Blues inside Mandalay Bay. Remember that Tim from Cut Copy put me on their guest list? Well I was hoping that he would remember! Haha.
We got ready, stopped at Bar Louie to meet some of Jenny's other friends and made it to the concert right on time. Tim did remember me plus one! Yay! How nice. I danced. And danced. And danced the concert away. The more I hear their music the more I love it. I was trying to remember what song was the last one I heard in L.A. before the fire dept shut it down. And it was just as I expected... The very last song of their set before the 3 song encore. I mean, really guys? It was that important to shut it down about 20 minutes before it was going to end anyways? I'll never forgive the L.A.F.D. or the stupid Music Box for that. No one comes between me and my music. Grrrrrr.
So after the show was over, we were still tired. But I really just wanted to thank Tim for the tickets. Seriously, how nice are these guys? We heard that at least one of them was DJing at Beauty Bar downtown... Which turned out to be perfect since I wanted to see the Vegas Beauty Bar and Neon Reverb was happening there as well. We headed down there but could only find the lead singer, Dan, at Beauty Bar. So we stopped to chat with him and asked him to give Tim my thanks. Dan didn't disappoint my impression of these Aussies because he was so so nice. He remembered me from L.A. as soon as I walked up to him and said that they were all wondering if I was going to make it there to Vegas. Haha. That just cracks me up.
After that, Jenny just had to show me the Griffin (a bar and club) next door and introduce me to even more people! I really like that club, too. And then, finally, we made it home to sleeeeeeeeep. Fun times. I just wish Cut Copy was playing again in Cleveland so that I could go again! Hehe.
