Pizza, Liberace, then Home

My favorite Las Vegas casinos have always been the ones with the fun themes, like Luxor or Venetian. Hank's favorite, the Cosmopolitan, I did not initially maybe even know existed but it's definitely growing on me. We keep coming back for more.

Their check in area is pretty cool. 

Secret Pizza has a fun gimmick: it's friggin secret. You won't find it on any of the casino's maps.

Lydia was very excited to get soft serve from Milk Bar.

The good book had an entry about a Liberace museum that I'd never gotten around to visiting. Sadly that has closed since that book was published. BUT the good news was that a lot of the artifacts are now featured at the Hollywood Cars Museum & Liberace Garage. It was a fun and silly little stop definitely not on the Vegas strip. I'm out here supporting small businesses like a hero. Out front the have the taxi from Scrooged.

I don't think I know much about his music but Liberace definitely had a style. Who else would have considered making a piano car complete with candelabra on the hood?

Lydia is a big Flintstones fan and so was excited by the more than one prehistoric vehicle on display.

We hit the airport lounge and then bounced right out of town.

I love me some Anthony Bourdain. On his show No Reservations he travels around and samples cuisine from exotic places such as Haiti, Kurdistan, the Amazon, and

Missouri, where Lydia was born and raised. There they eat local delicacies such as raccoon and squirrel.
