I spent last weekend in Vegas with my best friends.
Now, I’ve been to Vegas five times. I’ve stayed and eaten all over the strip, but this time was, in a word, unforgettable. Here are a handful of photos from our stay, snapped oh-so-professionally on my iPhone.
The pastry basket we split at Bouchon, which included pain au chocolat, a pecan sticky bun, 2 raspberry beignets, and a cheese danish. Each was out of this world delicious, but those beignets? Heavens yes.
The Bellagio, where we partied at club Hyde.
Kate at the Bellagio fountains.
“Adult Tater Tots” stuffed with bacon and brie at STACK.
In our seats before the Cirque du Soleil Beatles LOVE show. Highly recommended.
Kate and I at club Chateau in the Paris Hotel and Casino.
So much iced coffee fueled this weekend.
The four of us at Ghost Bar at The Palms.
We also dined at TAO Asian Bistro in the Venetian, which was fantastic, as it always is. Everything on the menu is packed with flavor and cooked to perfection.
For brunch on Sunday we went to Serendipity 3 outside of Caesar’s Palace, where I ordered the Saints and Sinners French Toast. The food is fair and the portions are massive, but it’s the atmosphere that makes it fun and worthwhile for a visit.
A perk of staying at the Venetian is the discount offered to its world-class spa, Canyon Ranch. For $20, we bought day passes to use the complete European-inspired suite of thermal spa cabins, tubs and aquathermal bathing, aromatherapy rooms, rain showers, salt grotto and wave room. B.l.i.s.s.
Question: Have you and your friends taken a weekend away together? Where did you go?
