Palace Romance

During Becky’s April Bright Square photo challenge I opened the archives to December 2019 and January 2020. Now I’m sharing more of our pre-pandemic holiday in California and Nevada with stories that just couldn’t be squared!

Postcards from America

Fun fact #1: Mr ET and I first met at Caesars Palace!

I know what you’re thinking. What are the odds of two Australians from the same city meeting in a crowded casino in Las Vegas?

Don’t get too excited – it wasn’t that Caesars Palace.

In the early 1980s there was another Caesars Palace, a fancy downtown nightclub in our Queensland city. It was the place to be on Friday and Saturday nights – and that’s where we met.

More than 40 years after that very first meeting we found ourselves in the other Caesars Palace in Las Vegas and, with just a few days to go until our 38th wedding anniversary, it was the perfect venue for a celebratory dinner.

With the Emperor and his friends looking on we dined in style in the Forum on arancini balls, pasta carbonara and a delectable chocolate cake.

It was a once in a lifetime occasion.

Fun Fact #2: A few days later on our actual anniversary in San Francisco we celebrated again. At Golden Gate Park Mr ET promised me another memorable meal and he certainly delivered – hot dogs and cans of root beer from the hot dog van.

What a guy!

  1. You had me fooled for a second, and I thought I knew you so well. First trip to LV indeed! Again your combination of pictures and words make me feel like I was right there in Las Vegas with you. It’s fun to see and hear your thoughts on your tour of the American West.
