I had to travel to Las Vegas for business and I had a blast. I should warn you up front that this post is going to be crazy image-heavy, and a few of them a pretty blurry but make me happy so I’m posting them anyway. Looks like WordPress is unhappy about the size of some fo the photos, so I am going to post this and add to it later when I have more time.I took off as always from PDX and had a clear lovely day and a window seat to admire all of my favorite mountains. My company put us up in the Palazzo, which I really really liked. Brian flew in and stayed the weekend so we could wander. The Palazzo is apparently the second largest building in terms of floor space in the Northern hemisphere. Explains why I was lost the first night.
We went with some friends in a stretch Hummer to see the sights on Friday night. It involved a surprising amount of drinking, and we closed down a bar at 4? 4:30? a.m.
After sleeping a bunch, we went to Gordon Ramsay’s BurGR for too much food. Brian hacked his menu as we were waiting by the hostess stand, ha! I was going to get a tshirt, but the only ones they had for women were 1) Pink and 2) Said BurGR across the butt. Nope, no thanks. Food was good, although we ended up eating at his pub that night and I much preferred the pub.
We had breakfast at the Peppermill Lounge, a diner from the 70s. Made a friend over breakfast, if we had been staying another day, I think we would have hung out all day.
By the time we made it to Bouchon on Sunday, I was so done. We found this quiet hall in the Venetian, and I have never been more pleased with peace and quiet. Bouchon was very, very good. I had a corpse reviver (a drink from the 20s), the trout (mmmmm) and some wild mushrooms. Could have eaten every meal here!
