#eyeADVENTURE | Las Vegas Is For Grown A$$ Kids

No, really, there's more to do than gamble and eat at the many buffets I learned. I mean I had a feeling there was because more than 603,488 people live there and I'm sure they don't gamble daily, or maybe they do. But going back to Las Vegas I had expectations of fun and it ended up being fun on Fleek!

Besides having the best food, courtesy of Chef JKL; she made fresh Brussel sprout and meatless meat tacos when I first arrived, then we went to Sprout's aka The Club! But let's get jiggy surviving the 115 degrees weather like a real G I went to the pool tanned, attempted to hop the gate to get in the pool (shout out to D), played Heads Up at the Davis Party, it was a very LIT week. Yes, I could have done most of that in Tennessee but not really.

Next, it was adventure time. Waking up on a Saturday morning and hearing, "Yo, you want to drive to LA today," that was a dream come true, because I hadn't been to LA since I left Arizona. We ended up at a rooftop party at OHM in Hollywood celebrating a birthday then Teedra Moses performs! Just imagine if you had never been to a Teedra Moses show and you've been wanting to go, yes that feeling. Then we went to have some Italian food & next ended up at this Hipster strip club. We drove back from, well JKL did, Jamillah didn't even attempt, I tried but I started sleep talking and I knew that wasn't going to work. 

 

But back to LAS VEGAS... 

The Container Park

 Yes, that slide. 

Yes, that slide. 

 They all fall down. 

They all fall down. 

When you have the coolest friends in the world there's no telling where you will end up. In this case I ended up going down a 33 feet slide screaming at the top of my lungs, playing a life sized Connect Four (& fake winning), watching Doo Wop (That Thing) via Lauryn Hill on a huge outdoor screen and playing with Legos. Nope I didn't go to a regular park for children, but rather an adult park filled with other 21 somethings surrounded by great eats and bars. During the entire time in Las Vegas, besides watching seasons of Shameless and visiting the Seven Magic Mountains; I had the most fun there. 

 Fake, but really winning. 

Fake, but really winning. 

At night it was still 100 degrees but a nice dry heat that I could stand. I suggest if you're looking for something to do and want to use all of that good energy or you just feel like having a grown a$$ kid moment, visit The Container Park in Las Vegas, Nevada.
