Mr. Mamas for Breakfast Again 🙂

Well, we tried Mr. Mamas for breakfast again.   Today we split a Chili Cheese Omelet, toast and a bowl of fruit.  The omelet was great – though we agree that yesterday’s Cali Omelet was just a little bit tastier.  We ordered the hash browns today.  Much better choice over the home fries.  Our waitress today was Claudia.  She was nearly as cheery as Julie from yesterday.  And owner Nick was just as pleasant as ever.  Nice place.

Mob Museum

Well this is something different 🙂  The Mob Museum is now open and it’s pretty cool.  It’s located in what was the Las Vegas Court House and Post Office Building.  The non-profit that owns the museum spent many years and something like 40 million dollars renovating and creating the museum and exhibits.  We spent about two hours here and I know we could have spent another hour or two.   Lot’s of artifacts, pictures, movies, stories and fun facts about early Las Vegas and organized crime, both in Las Vegas and around the country.

Amazing “BURGR”!

Our entertainment for tonight was an early show, so we decided to grab dinner early too.  We went to BURGR at Planet Hollywood.  BURGR is a Gordon Ramsay restaurant specializing in hamburgers.  And readers of this blog, I kid you not, “best burgers ever“!  In our opinion anyway.  And the fries, amazing!

Hitzville Show

Tonight for entertainment, we went to the V Theater in Planet Hollywood to see the Hitzville Show, starring Jin-Jin Reeves.   “Hitzville – The Show” is a journey through time with the music that made a city come alive. The show features hits made famous by Tina Turner, The Temptations, Gladys Knight, The Supremes, The Four Tops and more.  If you like the Motown sound and other black pop music of the 60s and 70s, you’ll love this show.  We did!
