Another Weekend in Las Vegas

For visiting relatives from afar, Las Vegas is an easy trip from Seattle packed with gourmet eating, entertainment, and luxurious accommodations.  We stayed at the Palazzo, dined at RM Seafood and Michael Mina, saw KÀ and Celine Dion {pleasantly surprised by both}, spent a morning at Canyon Ranch spa, and shopped.  Here is a quick glimpse of the weekend.  For more on Vegas, check out posts from this past March filed under travel. Happy Monday!

Happy Friday

I hope you enjoyed the highlights of our little jaunt to Las Vegas as much as we did.  Why not hop on a plane and go before the desert heat takes over?  Have a marvelous weekend.

Las Vegas {Part II}

Spring was in the air at the Palazzo and Bellagio hotels with their overflowing waterfalls and impressive florals in full bloom.  We began our day with brunch at Thomas Keller’s Bouchon Bistro and ended it with dinner at Michael Mina and Cirque du Soleil’s “O.”Palazzo

Bouchon felt cozy despite being in an overwhelmingly large space.  Our meal was rich and tasty, and our server was genuinely lovely.  Perhaps our only regret was not trying the corned beef and cabbage special in honor of St. Patrick’s day. Keep reading below for more.

Las Vegas {Part I}

Happy first day of Spring! The proverbial Sin City was a surprisingly satisfying winter getaway for non-gamblers, with so much to see, do, and eat.  After settling into our room at Encore, we did some exploring to work up an appetite for dinner at Guy Savoy.  Keep reading below for details.

Our room was generously sized with an expansive view.  I adore the mock crocodile and houndstooth wall-coverings as well as the doors.
