A Whirlwind in Las Vegas!

My husband and I just had a blast in Las Vegas over the weekend.  We took a short trip in order to see Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds play at Planet Hollywood, but of course we had to have a little fun along the way.

We stayed at Paris Hotel, which was a spectacular site in itself.  This place was very unique, the prices were reasonable (a must with us), and the rooms were really lovely.  I couldn't resist stepping in one of the shops and checking out these cool Primal Elements soaps.  I do not do too much melt and pour soaping myself, but it doesn't mean that I am not impressed by those who do!

There were a couple places I must mention because they were spectacular in service, atmosphere, and food/drink.  First, was the bar Pour 24.  If you enjoy a good beer, this is definitely a must.  Situated inside New York, New York casino, this bar had a wide variety of beer and other drinks (you will have to excuse these terrible pictures.  The lighting was very dark in here).

The restaurant that stood out among the rest was Serendipity.  It was very cute with bright colors and decoration (which my husband pointed out was much like the inside of a teenage girl's bedroom.  Ha ha, that must be why I liked it so much!).  They had honestly the best Eggs Benedict I have ever tasted.  Not only that, but the coffee was excellent as well.  It seems that they are well known for their hot chocolate, which we did not try this time, but it looked really tasty.  I think almost everyone else in the place had ordered it.

Since our visit was extremely short, we did not spend a tremendous amount of time in the casinos.  We are not really big on gambling anyway, so we mostly just walked around and took in the sites during the day.  Of course, we finished off with our reason for this visit, a mind-blowing performance from Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds.  We had so much fun, and it was amazing, as expected. It was a whirlwind of a weekend, but I am so glad we were able to go!
