Separate guys and girls weekends don’t go as planned for anyone involved as the ladies head off for a fun Las Vegas weekend leaving the boys distraction-free to work. Well, as it turns out, not so distraction-free. Although Bernadette (Melissa Rauch) and Amy (Mayim Bialik) have plenty of alcohol-induced fun on their own, Penny (Kaley Cuoco) isn’t so lucky staying in the hotel room the entire night boning up for a presentation.
