Waking Up In Vegas

You gotta help me out
It's all a blur last night
We need a taxi 'cause you're hung-over
and I'm broke
I lost my fake ID
but you lost the motel key
Spare me your freakin' dirty looks
Now don't play me
You want to cash out and get the hell out of town
Don't be a baby
Remember what you told me
Shut up and put your money where your mouth is
That's what you get for waking up in Vegas
Get up and shake the glitter off your clothes, now
Why are these lights so bright
Oh, did we get hitched last night,
dressed up like Elvis,
And why, why am I wearing your class ring?
Don't call your mother'
Cause now we're partners in crime
You got me into this information overload,
situation lost control
Send out an S.O.S.
And get some cash out
We're gonna tear up the town

That's what you get
For waking up in Vegas.

Mastros' Treehouse

This treehouse is located at the east end of Crystals' Mall, near the Strip sidewalk. It's an 80 foot tall restaurant designed by David Rockwell, the designer of many of the Nobu restaurants, the Academy Award Kodak Theater and lots of other nice places.

This treehouse structure is currently the home of the Mastros' restaurant chain's Las Vegas location. Mastros has four other steak and seafood locations in Southern California and three in Arizona. The restaurant inside this particular treehouse is called Mastros Ocean Club Seafood Restaurant.

You can enter the treehouse by using the escalator seen at left, or by coming in from the mall's second floor walkway. If you need valet parking you can use Crystals' by looking for the signs in the front-entry driveway of City Center that read 'Crystals and Veer', which lead to the underground valet.
Mastros is open everyday from 11am-11pm and until Midnight on Friday and Saturday. The piano bar stays open until 2am. Their phone number is 702-798-7115.
Their menu can be seen on their website. Click Locations, chose Las Vegas, then Menu.
