Vegas Baby (January – February 2023)

This was Garland’s first time in Las Vegas and I had not been since the 90s. We saw a couple of great shows, ate really good food, more food, took in the lights AND weird spectacles and a visit to Hoover Dam and Lake Mead.

Moulin Rouge was our first show – what a great musical!
But…Love, the Beatles Cirque du Soleil was one of the best shows either of us have EVER seen! Highly recommend it – the music was awesome and there are no bad seats in this theater!
I’ve seen a few Cirques before, but this was the best one yet!
Recently found out that it’s illegal to take photos of the “real” Eiffel tower lite up at night. You can, but just don’t ever try to sell that photo!
The famous fountains at the Bellagio are always fun!

Speaking of the Bellagio (my fav in Vegas) – the atrium is gorgeous and adds new themes every few months.
Pictures don’t do it justice!
And the Bellagio lobby – where I first saw Dale Chihuly’s glass work!
Just breath-taking! Such a classy resort and casino!
Love trying new things – like quail at the Bellagio buffet. G loved the oyster bar!
Yum, making you hungry?
Dinner and drinks at the Osteria Costa Italian restaurant at the Mirage –
wonderful food and you must try the Lemon!
Totally different atmosphere at Freemont Street – be prepared for the performers on the street!
The Wynn
We loved the Wynn Buffet as much as Bellagio!
Love all the good desserts you can try.
Don’t hesitate to venture off the strip for great food. Someone recommended Scrambled in Henderson, NV and it was worth the short ride there! They have “multiple” different eggs benedict –
I was in heaven choosing two 1/2 orders.
Hoover Dam
High Bridge at Hoover Dam – this was not here when I came in the 90s.
Lake Mead – way down below is the where we had dinner – cause we always eat!
Dinner at Lake Mead Marina at sunset.

Alas, we will continue working remotely as we travel…since we can’t live off Vegas winnings!
