When my husband and I traveled to Vegas over the holidays, we stayed at the MGM grand.
- We bought tickets to KÀ by Cirque du Soleil, and the show was fantastic.
We enjoyed world-class dining, nightlife at the on-site clubs and played at the slots in ultra-modern casino. Our room was absolutely gorgeous, with tons of water pressure in the shower and an especially comfortable bed. We loved the fluffy pillows and comforter. We took pictures next to the 45-foot bronze iconic lion. We visited the MGMs non-profit sanctuary where they house 36 lions, and one of them is a descendant of the original lion featured in the movie credits. Our hotel was not all that far from a recreational cannabis dispensary. We found the dispensary in the ChinaTown area by accident. We were there for dinner one evening and just happened by the dispensary. We decided to check out their products and were amazed by the facility as well as the wide array of options. We hadn’t realized that there were so many consumption methods. While my husband and I were both familiar with smoking flower and pre-rolls from when we were in college, we had never tried vapes, tinctures, dabbing or edibles. Just their menu of edibles was incredible. Along with the classic brownies and gummies, there were every imaginable kind of chocolate bar, peanut butter cups, caramels, hard candies, toffee and even cannabis-infused beverages. We ended up buying a cannabis-infused cola and some assorted candies. The budtender cautioned us that edibles take a while for the effects to settle in and that they can be much more intense than smoking a joint.
