The Coca Cola Store- Las Vegas

We hit the Store and hilarity ensues.

As a surprise, I turned my Bride loose in M and M World.  After that it was, “Let’s do Coke”.  I was hoping to visit the Coke museum but was informed by the manager that it had been taken down THIRTEEN YEARS AGO.  We don’t get to the strip much.  I “glamored” him with the “WE JUST GOT MARRIED” and he fessed up an order of “Tastes OF the World” on the house.

Tastes of the World

Back in the Day [ed note: Read- When the MUSEUM WAS OPEN], TOTW shot out from the wall in arcing fountains of ten and twenty feet.   All of the products that are sold around the World.  You placed your cup in the stream and took a taste.  For the feeble hearted, there were your conventional soda machines banked along the wall as well.

Nowadays, “Tastes” come on a tray.  Two trays actually.

Tray Two on the Left and Tray One on the Right.

    Oh dear. I’m having flash-forwards of her first tequila experience. Hopefully I’m there for that, and she likes it as much as I do. 🙂

    Great post. Vegas is really one of the best tourist destinations in America… Sin City has a lot to offer when it comes to entertainment. I think most people associate Las Vegas to gambling too much now. Sin City has some of the top nightlife nightclubs in the city and the nightlife will only get better!
