Two Years: Part Two

I don't know why, but there's something magical to me about Las Vegas. I've always been a fan of anything themed: themed hotels, themed parties.. plus, Vegas is only about 4 hours away so it's a pretty easy way to get out of town but still not too far away. We left in the morning and hit zero traffic, stayed at Planet Hollywood Towers, danced. ate at Fleur by Hubert Keller and Mesa Grill. And we laughed, a lot, even though I had no voice. I'm glad that our hotel had a Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf so I could at least indulge in my favorite Vanilla Ceylon hot tea.

Mid-afternoon snack at Pink's before dinner at Fleur:

Walked around the Bellagio:

And of course, my favorite stop, the Beatles shop inside the Mirage:

Can I just say how gorgeous the Cosmopolitan hotel is?

Back at the hotel, and on our way to dinner:

Enjoying some hot sake before dinner:

I had forgotten to take the plastic off my new iphone (oops) so my flash photos came out ghostly:

What you see above is Parmesan Paprika popcorn, and behind it the onion soup "shooters". Yum.

Danced to some Beyonce at Rokvegas, where the ladies get in for free, and also get the drinks for free (poor boyfriends):

When we got back to the hotel, I had to get some tea, and came across this amazing glittery ball that changed colors every 5 seconds:

The next morning, I woke up craving this dish I saw on Food Network at Bobby Flay's restaurant Mesa Grill, located inside Caesars Palace, and yes, it was as yummy as I had hoped it would be:

Corn, shrimp, buttery white wine sauce.. I was sold.

..and a wonderful anniversary trip it was.


  1. I was thinking of you last night during Jeopardy. You would have liked the category "Restaurants in Vegas Hotels" I got all but one, stupid Excalibur.

  2. Aw, that warms my heart. I wish I had known about that. I totally would have tuned in!

  3. Oh also, those horses at the Bellagio? So great. I love their manes. Do you know what they were made out of? They look like icelandic horses.
