Last year we went to Palm Springs for the first time, for Modernism Week (my Flickr photos are here), and this year we started planning to go back but then were tempted by a promo that Thom had received from the Wynn Las Vegas, which included midweek rooms for $99 (upgradeable upon booking) and two tickets to Le Rêve. We thought, why not? And make it a Valentine’s and anniversary kind of thing? The time around Valentine’s is one of our anniversaries. In 2009 we became domestic partners on February 13, and the next day we got engaged and had our wedding later that year.
So we’re flying down to Vegas on Virgin America tomorrow, and our home for the next few days will be a resort suite at the Encore. We’ve also started filling our itinerary with more shows (Zumanity and The Beatles – LOVE) and restaurant reservations, thanks to your suggestions on Facebook and Twitter… and if you have more, please let us know.
Have a happy Valentine’s Day! And as a side note, there are several community actions taking place on Valentine’s Day at county offices across the country to advocate for marriage equality. The one in San Francisco will take place from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at City Hall on the steps and inside the county clerk’s office. If you have time, do check it out and help raise awareness for LGBT rights.
