Brisvegas Before Las Vegas – Day 4

Posted: March 21, 2022 in Uncategorized

Another quiet night had us scratching at the door at 6 am for our morning walk and coffee. Another lovely day has dawned for our last full day on our short sojourn this time round. Seemed to be an Espresso Engine now on every corner so having tried a different corner today I also went balls in and got a cappuccino instead of a flat white. No one can accuse me of being predictable eh

Speaking of being predictable , after a solid 12 hours thinking about it have booked flights to USA for October. Doubt we will ever return to the great deals prior COVID given we are still basically Mid COVID and the world needs a bex and a lie down at present. It’s an interesting trip where one heads south to Melboring before flying in the expected direction to LA. It’s all to do with what planes Qantas use where and why and Brisvegas still not what one would call a travel hub it seems. Then return to Sydney before home to Brisvegas. Of course also still have to book some internal US flights but that can wait another 12 hrs at least. Now for todays plan…

Revolves around a lunch at Alchemy with HPFA Anthony of the Della clan which just leaves morning and afternoon to fill in so to speak. Think we can lock in The Gresham again for late arvo shenanigans – did I mention they had Guinness on tap? A mid morning coffee and a mid afternoon snooze and the day virtually fills itself in eh

Tradition #2 at least survives with a coffee at the always reliable Sugar n Spice . I could barely contain my excitement

Ok , let’s head off to lunch for a couple of hours and then home for usual snooze and a bath. Yeah right . We were Drinking with Dellas. The food at Alchemy was truly excellent and we had a beer and then shared a bottle of wine . A normal lunch enjoyed and all according to plan

Then Ant suggested a second bottle of wine . The rest is a blur. We then went onto The Gresham for Tradition #2 – finally some black stuff

A perfect end to a pleasant lunch. Then Ant just naturally said “ So two more Guinesses “? Well , of course

Then Ant asked where the toilets were but collared the waiter on the way out and before you knew it

By now CLP had switched to Soda Water but I felt my inborn masculinity/stupidity had been challenged so naturally ordered two more Guinnessesssssssss while Ant was checking the Stockmarket

At last sanity prevailed as the clock struck 6 pm and CLP had been asleep for the last hour. We bid farewell to our drinking buddy at bus station and wobbled home for a night of possible sleep but certainly sweet dreams. It has been a magic few days and I bid adieu until the next breakout bonanza of booze and bon vivant escapades.
