The first time I went to Las Vegas, my friend Mark and I spent our first few hours there walking around looking for some good food to eat. You would think that would be easy considering where we were, right? I guess that’s the irony of it, because we ended up walking MILES (or so it felt) until we came upon this restaurant/casino/karaoke bar/brewery called Ellis Island. It is located behind Bally’s; quite a little walk behind Bally’s I might add. We both ate for all of…maybe…$6.00 (!!) followed up by watching some of Vegas’ most entertaining karaoke. It was a great first induction into the ever-adventurous and always surprising itinerary that makes up Las Vegas.
During this past trip I had to make my way back to “the Island” to relive the great memory. These pictures are for you, Mark. It also just so happened that right outside there was a bumblebee that I was able to capture so vividly. Although the bee and flowers were clear signs of spring, it looks like we’re a little too late to consider the $10.99 Easter dinner. Next year, perhaps. 🙂
