Las Vegas Day 2

Las Vegas Day 2

Our second Vegas day started with us grabbing breakfast at the hotel then heading to the outlet mall.  It was Columbus Day, so there were some great sales.  I got some Vera Bradley bags and some J Crew stuff.  Tyler hit up Puma, too.

Then we had lunch at a Korean BBQ place (which was a bit odd.  No one was in the restaurant…and you cooked your own food at your table) and headed to the Eiffel Tower at Paris.

We had tickets to go up in the tower, and we got lucky because we got up there 5 minutes before the first Bellagio fountains of the day!



When we finished looking out from the Eiffel tower, we went to Hexx Chocolate also in Paris.  They had a chocolate tour and tasting.  TBH, the tour was just a walk through the tiny kitchen and wasn’t that impressive, but the chocolate tasting was great.  We bought 5 bars to take home.10954456_864779164283_7696965086248397703_o

After Paris, we went to the hotel to change and then headed for dinner at Bobby Flay’s Mesa Grill.

It was our splurge meal of the trip and it was SO good.

Even though the guys at the table next to us were obnoxious (and the tables are so close together, you are basically sitting together), the food and service were GREAT.

We ordered the smoked chicken quesadilla which was a flavor EXPLOSION.


The waiter brought me a complimentary margarita, I think mostly to make up for the annoying guys next to us. It was seriously one of the best margs I’ve ever had.


For our entree, we split this GIANT steak.  22 ounches of beef.  But it was so good.  And we got a side of poblano sweet pea risotto which I am totally going to attempt to make at home.


After dinner, we had tickets to see Penn and Teller, but they were having weird technical issues and the show was cancelled.

So instead, we headed to the High Roller Observation Wheel at the LINQ.

The views from the top were amazing.


You climb into these space pods with like 10-12 other people and ride around like a ferris wheel.  It was so neat.12095306_864782587423_6801702306591917456_o

We lucked into seeing the Bellagio fountains from up there too!


After our ride, we found dessert at the LINQ at Ghiradelli- a cookie crumble sundae that was even better than it looks. 12141048_864779348913_6836075154238921236_o

We topped off our night by watching like 3 fountain shows at the Bellagio, since we had seen them from the Eiffel Tower and the High Roller.  It’s just iconic Vegas.  Loved it.
