My 18 Hours in Vegas

On Saturday night at 6:30, my friend got a text saying, “Come to Vegas for the night, I got you a room.” After a little convincing from my end and quick packing, we made it to the airport for an 8:30 flight and touched down in Vegas for 10pm.

With amazing breakfast tacos and queso, delicious Austin, TX-sourced coffee beans, and freshly made salsa each week, Jalapa Jar helps hundreds satisfy their hungry bellies on the daily.
