Vacation Recap!

Warning: This will be a long post with many pictures!

Las Vegas was great - and better than last time! Michael had a good time, and we both came home with money in our pockets. Amazing, huh? I'll just hit the highlights with the photos I have.

The first (of MANY) casinos we visited was Paris. We ate brunch there and gambled for a while. Great view from the top, too!
We all went to In-and-Out burger, and all "they" say is true! I love In-and-Out.

Also, you HAVE to know that the buffets at the casinos are amazing, so we had to got to a ew of them. We went to the Main Street Station (downtown) and the Bellagio buffets. Of course you couldn't take pictures in the Bellagio's banquet room, so I took a picture of my dessert at Main Street Station. It's a lemon bar, napoleon, and a chocolate-covered confection. Yum!

Then, later on in the week, I got two 4 Aces and a three! Thanks to those winnings, I got to have a shopping spree (a small one!) when I got home.
Since I am a food-oriented person, or foodie if you will, I HAD to stop by Mario Batali and Wolfgang Puck's restaurants. I just looked into B&B (Mario's) in the Shoppes at the Venetian, and it looked very nicely decorated (http://www.bandbristorante.com/). Had I the stomach-room I would have eaten a little something. At MGM we went to Puck's Bar & Grill, which was delicious (http://www.wolfgangpuck.com/restaurants/fine-dining/3910)! We invited my parents to come with us, and we all had a wonderful time. My dad got a calzone (wood-grilled, of course), my mom got a grilled pasta dish with heaps of fresh basil and garlic-rubbed bread, Michael got the veal ravioli (no comment), and I got the prime burger. We shared a pinot noir, which was so smooth. Great dinner!
I'll post about Freed's Bakery and Bobby Flay's Mesa Grill here in a minute. Lots of picture with that too!
