Great “off-strip” Breakfast
Based onÂ Yelp reviewsÂ for a great “off-strip” place for breakfast, we triedÂ Mr. Mamas. Â Wow – good call! Â We split a Cali Omelet, toast and a bowl of fruit. Â The omelet was great. Â I ordered it with the home fries. Â I’ve had better home fries. Â These were deep-fried, not pan-fried. Â I guess the omelet was the star though and it did not disappoint. Â Our waitress, Julie, was cheery and very helpful. Â We met the owner, Nick too. Â Great guy. Â We may be back tomorrow for the Chili omelet!
I had my most significant business meeting of this trip today as well. Â It was with the General Manager and the Facilities Administrator forÂ Oasis Las Vegas RV Resort. Â Wow, what I nice place this is. Â The Nevada Chapter of the Heartland Owners Club held theirÂ rally here in late September of 2008. Â I flew out for that one. Â It was hot in the day and cool in the evening. Â We had a great time! Â Anyway, I’m working out all the details now and I’m hopeful that we’ll be able to hold the 2016 North American Heartland Owners Rally here. Â More meetings and negotiations to be done – we shall see.
Based on the recommendation of a cabbie, we ventured a mile east of the strip on the north end of Vegas for lunch at a Thai restaurant called “Lotus of Siam“. Â Wow – it was worth the drive. Â Nancy had the chef’s special, a Sea Bass dish with veggies, spices and flat wide noodles. Â Oh my was that good! Â I had the Panang Curry Chicken, also with flat wide noodles. Â Very good as well. Â I wish this place was closer to the south end of the strip – we’d go back, it was THAT GOOD!
There is a HUGE indoor mall on the 3rd floor of Plant Hollywood called “Miracle Mile Shops. Â Lots of stores. Â Some regular ones we known and others quite weird, for our taste. Â We found a Garret’s Popcorn and could not leave without getting some. Â Oh man – yummy!
Australian Bee Gees Show
This evening, we stayed at our hotel and saw a performance of TheÂ Australian Bee Gees. Â What a show! Â We really enjoyed it. Â And what made it even better is that like all the shows we see, we get tickets at Tix4Tonight, at up to half-price. Â But the even, more better part is we were asked if we’d like to move from our “back of the house” table to a table near the stage. Â Sure, we’ll be seat fillers 🙂 Â Well, we were in the front row! Â Very nice.
It’s sad that with only one Bee Gee remaining alive (Barry Gibb), the music could die. Â But with acts like Australian Bee Gees, their music can live on. Â If you get a chance to see this act somewhere in the world – treat yourself if you enjoy the music of the Bee Gees.
