let me introduce you to retro bakery, an amazing little place in las vegas about 25 mins from the strip...

meet kari, one of the amazing owners. in her hands is a fresh batch of megachip cookies. the drive to vegas is worth it just to eat one of these cookies straight out of the oven. these cookies are no joke!

her cupcakes are no joke either! the cake is moist and the frosting is ridiculously good! and i'm not the biggest fan of frosting to begin with, but after trying kari's frosting i now understand why people buy frosting shots. seriously.

and as if cookies and cupcakes weren't enough for one afternoon.. just outside the bakery, las vegas' one and only food truck made an appearance! slidin' thru - a slider truck.

meet ric, the super cool guy who drives this truck all over vegas! the saddest part of my whole weekend was that i didn't get a chance to try the eggplant caprese slider. but that just means that i'll have to go back soon!

now i didn't go out to vegas just to eat delicious baked goods {even though now that i've been there i just might}. i went out to see johnny at one of his stops on his suitcase tour!
if you have no idea what i'm talking about, go here to read about it or go here to watch a video of this night.
