A Different Kind of Festival!

Rise Lantern Festival

Rise Lantern Festival

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!!

Amy & John: We can’t thank you enough for sharing your home with us. I have stayed at many, many amazing houses but yours is by far the best. Your home is so relaxing and comfortable. It is truly an escape from reality and “the Strip.”  Your attention to details when designing your house is incredible. OMG to your oasis in the backyard. Thanks again and hope to see you soon.  

The first guest book is full.  There are pages and pages of messages like this that just bring tears to my eyes!  How lucky we are to share our home with so many and how grateful we are to have so many love our special place on this Earth.  We also look forward to having each one of you return !

Go see the Zombie show!

Go see the Zombie show!

Feeling a little addicted? Missing your favorite show ?

Well, never fear! Vegas has you covered….

Planet Hollywood has a show that takes you back to the year 1958 in a world where the undead have taken over! Our story takes place shortly after the President of The United States struck a deal with the invading Zombie hordes to allow the living and the dead to coexist (and they do behave with a bit of that  Vegas “naughtiness” that makes it a proper vegas show!)!!

Come on!! Join the fun …. Everyone we know that has seen it gives it a thumbs up!!

Why your family vacation will not crash and burn if you head to Vegas

Family vacations.
Normally this is followed by a face. You know the face. Ugh.

Sure family vacation can be great — but that takes work. And really, it is not all that often …

So, where do you go that is guaranteed fun for all?

Why you cannot crash and burn when you stay at our place!

The house will make you feel warm and loved. The kitchen will help you produce amazing meals.
The pool and spa will take the kids to a happy place and I promise, a dip in the spa (summer or winter) with a glass of wine and some good music will leave you quite happy too.

And then you read a few things on our blog (take a moment and check out Giada’s new place for a home cooked meal) giada

And you are well on your way to designing a trip for everyone. You will find things for the “older crowd” (google search Rose.Rabbit.Lie. at Caesars) as well as great kid places. Even those that are a bit on the wild side can try flying with the Combat Aces – like driving a Ferrari in the sky!

After a lovely family vacation exploring all Vegas has to offer and all the while having a beautiful villa to return to — everyone will be in shock at what a great family vacation they had and beg you to start planning the next one!!!

Let’s do it!

Too many choices!

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!
2014 Blue Man
(2) Traveling with mom?
GO to “Donny & Marie” at the Flamingo

(3) Love BROADWAY?
HEAD off to the “Million Dollar Quartet” at Harrah’s Showroom

(4) Have to see a VEGAS SHOW?
TRY Frank Marino’s “Divas Las Vegas” at the Quad.

(5) Have a weakness for reality shows?
Buy tickets to “Terry Fator” at the Mirage

(6) In town with THE BOYS?
You’ll want to take that group of crazies to “Fantasy” at the Luxor

(7) Love the Cirque Shows?
We recommenf “O” or “Le Reve” 2014 O

(8) Enjoy the music of the Beatles?
“LOVE” is a wonderful show as well!

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!
Enjoy!

FOOD !!

Lately I have been reading a lot about the new reason people come to VEGAS …

NOT to gamble, but to EAT.

I talk about food a lot, too.

I discovered Vegas had great food to offer long  before it became cool!

So – what is up and coming in our amazing town right now?

I have a few suggestions!

(1) A Social Club in the Cosmo … great food and an interesting social “experiment!” www.http://www.roserabbitlie.com

(2) One of my favorites — great food that is free from all that JUNK! And really amazing!!2014 Wild

(3) The thing about Vegas is that you can travel to many different “places” while really just going from Resort to Resort … well at Crush: Eat Drink Love, they gives it all to you at one place!! Choices from all over the world ready to melt into your mouth!

(4) Give me a burger? This place will make you crave them! 2014 Burger

and finally … I have to include the one thing I “need” on a monthly basis:

(5) Wing Lei – at the Wynn. It does not have a website, but you can look it up on the WYNN site … which describes it as” Often hailed as the finest Chinese gourmet in the city, this Michelin-rated restaurant serves fresh, authentic dishes in a sleek dining room set inside Wynn Las Vegas. The interior is adorned with classic white tablecloths, high-backed red velvet chairs, and a large Fernando Botero statue, all illuminated by dramatic lantern-like chandeliers. Seated beside expansive windows overlooking a zen-inspired garden, patrons savor house specialties crafted by executive chef Ming Yu, who incorporates Cantonese, Shanghainese, Sichuan, and even French influences into the extensive menu. Highlights include the pan-seared potstickers, shrimp toast, and Peking duck tasting menu, featuring five preparations of duck.” I know … perfection!

So please, if you are in Vegas and thinking of heading out to eat… please try at least one of these spots. They will not disappoint!

Gameworks Opens .. just down the street!

Play Time!

Too Hot? Too Cold? Kids driving you crazy?  Bored with the Casinos?

Dreaming of shopping or a quiet lunch but have a house full of kids?

We have the spot for you! Towne Square is one of our absolutely favorite places to hang out, but the kids are not always up for the trip.

The answer has arrived! Game Works … not a old run down one… but a new, clean, 8,700 SF building with awesome games! The kids will run out the door when you offer the trip and then the day is yours! Join them for some games or bowling, shop, eat, or relax with a cold drink!

We are thrilled to have such a great place so close!

Check it out!
