Las Vegas offers so many options for dining – where do you go?
We always find it fun to really enjoy the complete experience when time allows.
This means taking full advantage and stepping out for a wine pairing option… it is really over the top!
We can recommend the monthly pairing events at Giada’s place at THE CROMWELL on the Strip.

BILLY IDOL??? Steve Stevens on guitar??
Really … you know i just got your mind going and your feet dancing (Mony Mony anyone?!?!)
Take a step back a few decades and pretend you are back in high school??
Come on! Call the House of Blues and grab some friends!
Billy and his crew put on one awesome performance and will guarantee to rock the house and have you singing along.
Hurry tho — he is only scheduled for 26 dates!
See ya there 🙂
Seek out this little place, tucked back in a corner of a typical shopping plaza — you will be surprised and thrilled!
When you head to Vegas, you think of buffets and LARGE meals at a Casino.
Well, trust us… there is SO much more offered at the local level, you may find a new hang out or two!!
Yuzi Japanese Kitchen is one of those places… if you are looking for something wonderfully Japanese and delicious, PUT THIS ON YOUR LIST!
The Moapa River Indian Reservation lit up the night sky on the 10th of October with thousands of beautiful paper lantern taking off and flying into the night!
Next October, plan on staying with us and making the drive out to share in this lovely festival! There will be music, food and drinks! It was held at the Moapa Travel Plaza, just 35 miles NE of Vegas. Guests were given the chance to personalize the lanterns, with messages, a prayer, dream or resolution! What a wonderful way to spend an evening… dreaming and being thankful!!
Vegas has more to offer than just MEGABUCKS and wild nights … I keep saying that, but I do intend to prove it! I will continue to post secrets here for you to discover in between the craziness! Hope something stands out and you discover a wonderful adventure!
Secret No. 1
Did you know that Louis Vuitton has long had close ties with the art world—see?
Check out the top floor of the recently opened Fondation LVMH (in LV’s CityCenter Store).
It’s full of specially commissioned works, like an Isa Genzken rose outside one entrance.
There you will find – one of the most important single work of art in Las Vegas: light artist James Turrell’s Akhob, which means ‘pure water’ in ancient Egyptian.
This room is womb-like – bathed in shifting sorbet-colored lights that are both soothing and disconcerting; the field of vision is woozy, the horizon seeming to shift over time.
And the best part — It’s free and visits are limited to just four people, which keeps the experience intimate—just make a reservation and give your name to a floorwalker when you arrive.
Let us know if you check it out and what you thought!
So there’s shows, food, gaming, food, shopping, food, resting by the pool with few fabulous drinks…. more shows and shopping and food.
Vegas! It’ll fill you up!
So don’t let all that good food and the amazing drinks get you down!
Take a break and hit the gym. But not just any gym – do it VEGAS STYLE!
Besides running and swimming, you can play tennis, train, take group classes, enjoy LifePowerYoga, pilates, weight loss programs, complete a health check, relax at the spa and enjoy some healthy snacks at the cafe.
It is one amazing place to visit while in town and you’ll feel better for it!
Should you rent a car?
How much is a taxi?
Is there a bus?
These are questions we get a lot and it is mainly all about how to get to the Strip… well, we found a great way to travel around, see the sights and for free!
First – you just have to get yourself to Mandalay Bay (a short bus, a quick taxi or the car you rented are all good options for this) …. from there, follow our trail —>
While at your starting point, please take a moment to enjoy the beautiful Mandalay Bay, even if it is only to walk around it a bit (the new mall is wonderful!)
Then we hope on the free tram to Excalibur – which is also a crazy, fun place to stroll around!
When you have finished with the Excalibur, cross over the bridge to the NY NY (the bridge itself is a bit wild – with vendors and those with a “great CD” just published standing around trying to meet you…). Once at the NY NY, spend some cash on the rollercoaster – it is such a fun ride and a great way to see the Strip (upside down and all).
Once at the NY NY, the Strip is all around you! Walk to MGM and the “M” n “M” store, or the Coca-Cola Store. Head to Paris, the Bellagio and Caesar’s … all easy to walk to and walking is the best way to see the Strip and the people! We always find ourselves ending at Caesar’s and stopping at the mall for some food before heading back. This is a full day trip and sure to give you a wonderful experience!!
We never tire of this trip – it is the perfect way to enjoy the Strip, the people and all that Vegas has to offer (for free).
Heading to Vegas? Do a little research and you’ll soon discover, there are a lot of shows to see!
Which ones do you pick!???
We have some ideas!
(1) Family Adventure – GO to the BLUE MAN GROUP at the Monte Carlo!

Hitting the shows that appeal to you and your companions is the best way to enjoy all Vegas has to offer!
We hope this list is a good starting place for you as you plan!
We are so pleased to announce that we are working with up-and-coming artists to add a little extra flair to the house! We picked one amazing photographer as our first to feature.
Jill Sanders, who has spent many years in Lake Tahoe, Nevada, is expanding her portfolio to many new areas of the County and has lately found inspiration in our little piece of the Earth.
Las Vegas and the areas around are so unique .. such an inspiration to many!
But to Jill Sanders .. it is the light and the clouds that call her.
And those shots speak to us.
We will be featuring a few of her pieces in the house and cannot wait to hear how our guest react!
We hope our guests will love this first addition — we hope to add more!
Please take a moment and look through Jill’s amazing work!
