If you guys were following along on Instagram last week, you may have noticed a little Vegas vacay with three of my favorite girls (Jenn, Krystal, and Kathleen) taking over my feed. The four of us had the not-so-difficult task of spending two days exploring the Venetian and the Palazzo, and y’all, the trip did not disappoint. Aside from seeing Britney Spears’ “Piece of Me” show (these Southerners clearly loved it), here are a few highlights of the trip.
LOVE art installation by Laura Kimpton – 12-foot high red steel letters spelling out LOVE in the lobby of the Venetian are just begging for a little Instagram love. Pun intended.
Canyon Ranch SpaClub – What girls’ trip would be complete without a little visit to the spa? We each enjoyed the All-In Massage which combines hot stones, Shiatsu, reflexology, a salt scrub, and more. It was like a mixed bag of all of my favorite massages combined into one. We didn’t have time to stay and enjoy the other spa amenities, but they looked fab, definitely worth checking out. Hashtag, robe life.
LAVO at the Palazzo – This is just straight up delicious Italian comfort food. Get the giant meatball. Or don’t. I’m not the boss of you. But it’s so good, and so is the gnocchi. Hell, so is the straight up bread dipped in their marinara sauce. This was my third time eating at LAVO, and it’s been consistently delicious every time.
Brunch at Bouchon – You can’t go to Vegas without a little brunch action, and Bouchon is in the perfect setting. The weather in Vegas while we were there was just plain delightful, so we sat outside overlooking a beautiful garden with the sounds of a fountain in the background. It really feels like you’re somewhere else entirely. Our group pretty much never has a meal without fries, and if you add the word truffle to that? We’re sold every single time.
BAZ – Star Crossed Love show – Y’all, I’m not gonna lie. Theater and musicals have never really been my thing. It’s true, but I totally got into this one. BAZ combines Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge, and The Great Gatsby in a way that totally makes sense and keeps you interested. I walked out thinking, well that was really fun. Rare for me, seriously.
SUSHISAMBA – This. Was. So. Good. I really, really wish there was a SUSHISAMBA near us in Orange County because I’m telling you, it was one of the best sushi restaurants I’ve ever been to. The Samba Strip roll was AMAZING, and the Peruvian Corn was addictive. Also, Japanese A5 Wagyu Beef. I’ll just leave that right there.
Bottle service at TAO Nightclub – I haven’t been “clubbing” since my days living in Hollywood, and I hadn’t been to TAO in a bazillion years, but going back was like a glorious blast from the past. The DJ killed it, as Vegas DJ’s tend to do, and the all-night dance party was much needed after the SUSHISAMBA food-a-thon.
And there you have it, our two days in Vegas packed full of food, drinks, and a little exploring. What are some of your favorite places to see, do, and eat in Las Vegas?
