Day 2 in Vegas–MESA and BURGR

Hey! Happy Saturday! Hope you are having a great weekend. Smile Laura and I are still having a blast in Vegas. . . I thought I would just pop in and share some of our activities yesterday.

After my conference we headed to Bobby Flay’s restaurant – Mesa (in Cesar’s Palace). Started with a margarita.  . .

and the best cheese dip ever. It was the goat cheese “queso fundido.” Laura and I have already vowed to recreate this at home. . .

And we shared the 16 spice chicken salad, which was good, but after that dip, we really just wanted to eat 4 more of those. . . Winking smile

Gelato at the Venetian. . . I got the stracciatella, which is Italian cream and dark chocolate pieces.

I got the Hell’s Kitchen burger. It was one of the best burgers I have ever had. And the sweet potato fries were life changing. . . they actually came with a powdered sugar shaker.

Then, we headed downtown. Played roulette at the Golden Nugget. Laura broke even (and actually made up her $40 deficit from earlier in the day) and I won $33. . .not too shabby. So, we immediately headed to the Sugar Factory to spend our winnings. . .

And then we went back to the hotel and I think I was asleep before my head hit the pillow!!

My conference is starting in just a few minutes, and then we are headed to Mon Ami Gabi for breakfast. . . If you remember from my last trip to Las Vegas, that French toast was the highlight! And then we have tickets to see “O” tonight!!

Hope you are having a great weekend. Smile
