What’s a girl to do in Vegas
Real EstateLAS VEGAS “It’s 83 degrees in Las Vegas right now; my brother can get us a free hotel room ‘cuz he’s a big loser, and I’m feeling lucky,” our Perfect Quality Louis Vuitton Replica friend Angela said as she fake designer bags entered replica louis vuitton the bar. “You in?”There are girlfriends you call when you need a recipe for an upcoming dinner. And, then there are girlfriends you high quality replica handbags china travel to Vegas with. That’s Angela, a fiery high quality replica handbags china , fun loving, no holds barred Italian replica louis vuitton bags from china who is pretty much up for anything. It doesn’t take much to talk us into a three night, girls only weekend, leaving the polar vortex behind for hot, sunny replica louis vuitton bags weather. Yes, it’s the land of male debauchery, but this neon soaked city in the middle of the desert is also a great girlfriend getaway destination. (Half of visitors to Las Vegas in 2013 were women and 79 percent of them were married.) Within minutes, we were googling best 1:1 replica handbags restaurants, biggest pools, and top spas in Las Vegas, and planning our itinerary.”Do you know you can shoot Tommy guns and race Ferraris in Vegas?” Angela said, looking up from her smartphone with a big Cheshire cat grin.We passed on the free hotel room when we discovered we’d have to share the space with Angela’s brother and friend. Instead, we checked into the recently opened, all suite Delano Las Vegas, a nonsmoking, nongambling oasis attached to the giant Mandalay Bay complex. The suites were spacious and a promotional room price didn’t bust the budget. After checking in, we headed to the Bathhouse Spa, a peaceful sanctuary within the Delano, with trickling water, pools, steam rooms and saunas, the best way to work out the kinks from the cross country flight.All aaa replica designer handbags loosey goosey, we donned our pretty little summer dresses for dinner at Strip Steak, award winning Chef Fake Louis Vuitton Replica Bags Michael Mina’s fancy steakhouse. We shared tuna and Hamachi poppers and five spice pork belly appetizers followed by some of the best chunks of meat we’ve ever tasted, including the butter poached bone in top loin and the Japanese Waygu beef. We ended the evening at the chic miX lounge on the top floor of the Delano for late night drinks, slipping into dark brown leather, custom designed seats overlooking the Vegas skyline. Cheers, ladies life was good.”Look, they think of everything,” Angela said as we crawled into bed, under impossibly soft comforters. “Sleeping pills!” The turn down service had left a tiny bowl of little, turquoise candies on our nightstand.Rrring. Rrring. “Who sets an alarm in Vegas?” Angela moaned, early the next morning. “I’m pretty sure it’s against the law.” Of the more than 40 million people who will visit Las Vegas this year, we’re guessing that a scant percentage rise and shine to an early morning alarm. But we had signed up for Yoga Among the Dolphins in Siegfried and Roy’s Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat at The Mirage resort. A very serene, Buddha calm instructor escorted us to a small room in the underwater dolphin viewing area. For 60 minutes, we stretched, cat posed, and downward dogged as a curious pod of dolphins returned to the window again and again to watch us. “There’s something about our movements that they find very interesting,” our instructor said. We left the room, peaceful and zen like, walking through the smoke filled casino (you have to walk through casinos to get anywhere in this town) already or still filled with people at gaming tables and drinking at bars. We hiked the Strip back to the Delano dolabuy , checking out hotels and attractions along the way. We looked at but didn’t ride the Big Apple Coaster around the New York New York Hotel and Casino; we checked out the Wildlife Habitat at the Flamingo Hotel with Chilean flamingos, swans, ducks, fish, and turtles, and window shopped The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace, with the largest H store in the world, and popular boutiques, like Kate Spade, Louis Vuitton, and Escada. In truth, we had made reservations at the AAA five diamond Picasso restaurant, considered one of the finest in Las Vegas, moments after we’d booked our plane tickets. The setting was beyond elegant, overlooking the famed fountains of Bellagio, surrounded by original Pablo Picasso masterpieces, and a bevy of doting servers. Executive chef Julian Serrano’s prix fixe menus cheap louis vuitton bags from china , inspired by the regional cuisine of France and Spain where Picasso spent much of his life, included poached oysters with Osetra caviar, warm quail salad, foie gras with caramelized pineapples, Tai snapper, and sauteed deer medallions. Rrring. “You’ve got to be kidding me,” grumbled a voice coming from under a heap of white, fluffy linens. It was 7:30 the next morning and we had to get ready for the Indoor Art Hike at Aria Resort Casino. Some of us thought it would be a nice stroll through CityCenter, with an eye toward its impressive $40 million fine art collection. The guide, a personal trainer at the Spa at Aria, kicked our butts. While we ran up and down stairs and did squats, lunges, push ups, and planks, he pointed out and described sculptures, paintings, and large installations. Who could fault us for scarfing down slices of gooey, cheesy pizza at the Five50 Pizza Bar at an early lunch?We started our night out on our final evening onboard the recently opened High Roller. OK, it’s not racing a Ferrari, but at 550 feet, it’s the world’s tallest observation high quality designer replica handbags wheel, and we had great views of the Las Vegas skyline and across the desert to the mountains on the horizon. It was the “happy half hour” special, and in our spacious pod, we had our own bartender and Perfect Quality Louis Vuitton Replica unlimited drinks for the 30 minute circular ride. Angela made sure we timed it right, leaving with a full glass in hand, as we made our way to the Venetian for the Motown show. We’re suckers for anything Motown, so when we saw the advertisement (and decent reviews) for “Smokey Robinson Presents Human Nature: The Motown Show,” we immediately bought tickets. It turned out that Robinson makes only a taped video screen appearance as he introduces the Temptations impersonators, which turned out to be four white guys from Australia. Guess we should have researched it a bit more; nevertheless, the music was lively and we sang repeated verses of “My Girl” and “Baby I Need Your Lovin'” for the rest of the night.
