Brisvegas Before Las Vegas – The Weekend

Posted: March 20, 2022 in Uncategorized

Devoted followers and casual stalkers would know the plan was to slowly re enter the world of travel in baby steps before eventually travelling back to USA late October 2022. As an aside the actual accomodation in USA is already booked and no flights yet. Breathe Breathe. With Qantass charging 10 k to catch a single engine Cessna to LA at present they will be waiting a bit longer. Luckily no bad news on the horizon like exorbitant fuel prices……. I digress

So, we are off to Brisveags for a few days at our new fave , The Treasury Hotel and Gambling Den. Once our old fave The Stamford went down the Not Welcome Camp path for tourists we had to look around and very happy with this choice . First up though a day to chill at the Ponderosa Pool at Flashman Inc.

Luckily it was St Patricks Day and had the green sluggos ready

Righto its Saturday morning and time to head down to Brisvegas and a quick reconnoiter in Wilston in preparation for an upcoming house sitting gig for CLP. This of course brings Fritzenjammer Beerhall into play for lunch and the old burger and beer double play

After ingesting sufficient calories to last the next few hours it was onto RJER for a catchup and a short babysitting gig with the Terrific Twin Terrors. I need a drink. Hey , there’s one . Sadly they were out of General Shitfaced 6 packs 😏

In a sign of appropriate affluence it was then time to swim in another pool I dont have to clean 170 klm apart. Frivolity ensued and some removed their swimmers but my lips are sealed. You would think though at CLPs age……

We woke the next morning, luckily, and headed to the park for some coffee and croissants to celebrate the J of RJER fame turning 22……. Then it was off to our lodgings and see if we can snare the ” We are old, early room please” deal at 10 am. Close and we only had to wait 45 mins so quickly ducked into mall for some necessities . Our room was great as always and in case ya need some convincing

We had dinner booked at Donna Chang across the road so a light lunch was in order and of course our one tradition in Brisvegas – that first Guinness . There is a pub just across the road called Irish Murphys , as opposed to say Tokyo Joes , that we have enhanced previously. It was quite , great. It was quiet because they had run out of Guinness, bad. So, you didnt think there would be a run on this week🤦🏻‍♂️ What was your last job, the vaccine rollout ?? So, we settled for some perfectly fine Asahi and will chase down the black stuff tomorrow maybe.

Back then for a quiet afternoon before Donna Chang tonight. I assume it has an oriental flavour but have been fooled before

Dinner at Donna Chang was excellent as expected . We were sensible and didnt over indulge but tried a wide range from the Dim Sum menu washed down with a splash of the good stuff.

There were no wuffer thin chocolates available so we went with a couple of fortune cookies . Imagine my surprise when we found out they were Seinfeld fans as well

And so our first full day and a half in Brisvegas comes to an end. In fact, you could say we were shown the door …
