Next Friday (Incredibly. Time goes by so fast.) I will be on my way to Vegas for my friend Annie's 40th birthday! I have another friend there who I'm hoping to see. Honestly, Vegas is one of those places I have been totally uninterested in until recently. Now I can't wait to go. I guess I thought you had to like gambling to want to go to Vegas, but now I see that is not the case at all. Anyway, I'm looking forward to seeing my friends from culinary school and my Vegas friend and meeting new ones coming to this birthday celebration. I expect there will be many adult beverages and lots of great conversation. Oh, and of course, food. Most everyone coming to her party is some sort of foodie. I'll be staying at the above casino/spa (the palm trees look a little sad in this picture, I have to say). The pool looks nice. Whee! I'm not sure it will be warm enough for that, though.
Monday night we are going to the Vintner Grill for her birthday, which was arranged by her husband and sister. Should be a great 40th birthday for her!
I will be sure to take lots of pictures and write it all down.
Oh, and here is a trailer for Sita Sings the Blues to at least give you an idea of part of the animation style. You don't see the modern parts of the story in the trailer.
