Quark's - Blue Monday

Joining Sally at http://smilingsally.blogspot.com/ for Blue Monday. Thank you Sally for hosting!

Today I am sharing my blue Quark's Bar and Restaurant glass with you.
I acquired this glass years ago when my sister took me to Las Vegas.



Star Trek: The Experience was a themed attraction that ran from 1998 to 2008 in the Las Vegas Hilton. Also housed in the Hilton was Quark's Bar & Restaurant which was modeled after the concourse in Deep Space Nine.


This glass held a smoothie type iced coffee beverage that was sooooo good!

We had a great time and came away with wonderful memories.

Happy Blue Monday.

Very cute! I always love blue glass, and that's a great shade. Never been to Las Vegas, but I'd love to get there someday.

Happy Blue Monday! from Joy @Joysweb

LOL - my husband works with a real Trekkie - he's been to every Star Trek event - I'm sure he visited Las Vegas for that one too!
