Fun Times in Las Vegas
One of the greatest things about working at Hot Tub Works is that the management is understanding when opportunities for a vacation come up. They realize that when a person works hard they also have to play hard too. 🙂
Recently I went on vacation to Las Vegas and stayed at The Hotel at the Mandalay Bay. We got one of the V suites so the view was magnificent!! Especially at night when you could see the whole strip light up.
While we were there we spent time gambling (Actually made $200 one day, and lost it the next) and saw The Lion King. That concert was amazing and really brought the story to life. I especially like how the masks would stand up on their head and then cover their face when they acted like they were going to attack.
But the real reason we went was for the ACM Awards Music Fan Jam. Me and my wife are real fans of country music and one of the big names right now in country music is Sugar Land. They were actually the hosts of the event and sang a lot of their songs. The best part of their performance was when they remixed some of the more popular songs from this year.
Basically the way the concert worked is that they showed all the awards from the main ACM Awards broadcast (they were in MGM) and during the commercials they would do some performances. After the ACM awards were over a majority of the big names that were at the event came by and performed a couple of songs.
Some of the people that were there were Little Big Town, The Band Perry, Eric Church, Steel Magnolia, Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton, Casey James (From American Idol) , etc.
The best part of the night for me though was when Rihanna came and performed with Sugarland. It was cool to see country music mixed with some of Rihanna’s style. Another great part of the ACM awards was when Steven Tyler came out during Carrie Underwood’s performance and sang a couple of songs with her. Unfortunately, they were at the MGM so we didn’t actually see them live. The concert overall was one of the best I ever went to. The only down side was that my voice was gone all weekend. 🙂
Thanks Alea (You have an awesome hair style, amongst other great qualities) and everyone else who made this possible…
