| Thursday, February 13: We left Indy after work and arrived in Las Vegas at 7:00 PM.
|We got our rental car and made a beeline for Winchell's Donut House. Previously thought to be extinct, Debbie had recently discovered that a few specimens still existed in the exotic land of Nevada.|
|Oh my. Look at that display of goodness, including exactly two French crullers, the ultimate donut. Back in the day, a junior high shopping trip in Minnesota wasn't complete unless it ended with a Winchell's French cruller.|
|We checked into the MGM Grand where we had a Tower Spa Suite.|
|It was a huge room with separate bedroom and living area plus windows all along one side.|
|The bathroom was enormous, ...|
|... and the garden tub put the "spa" in Tower Spa Suite.|
|Once settled in, we finally got to eat the Winchell's goodness. Yes, the cruller was just as delicious as Debbie remembered. That chocolate donut was crazy delicious too.|
|Our friends were staying in a suite on the top floor of the Signature at MGM Grand, so we headed over there to spend some time with them.|
|This is the only photo of this event. Check tomorrow's page for photos of both the friends and the suite.|
|It was about a 15-minute walk from their suite in the Signature to our suite in the Tower. We were staying at the very end of this very, very long Tower hallway.|
Here's the view of the airport from our room. Not very impressive, but very, very green.
