We didn't have breakfast at our hotel and started our day with a visit to Starbucks instead which got us up and out nice and early (American hotels don't seem to do the "tea-making facilities thing") and saved calories for a few indulgences...
I am a massive fan of Food Network UK - especially Diners, Drive-ins and Dives (as is Mummy Lipstick). We walked past Guy Fieri's Vegas Bar and Kitchen on our first day and headed back for dinner on our second. If you're a fan of the show then this place is awesome and even if you've never seen the show and love burgers, wings and big portions then you'll love it too. Quick warning - there isn't really anything vegetarian on the menu and it's not exactly "healthy" but this was such a fun meal and we even bought the book on our way out! While it's more expensive than some of the "Dives" on the show, our meal was great value and service was really good - we had a constant supply of Diet Cokes with new ones appearing even before we'd finish the first glasses.
|Turkey picnic roll and quad fries. Taking advantage of being a "sort of, kind of, flexible" type vegetarian.|
|Mummy Lipstick had a burger with bacon and mac and cheese because she'd never tried mac and cheese before (!!) and it's always a big hit on the show.|
|I don't think this picture really conveys how big everything was!|
|We obviously didn't *need* dessert but who does need a deep fried brioche s'more sandwich?|
|Froyo for lunch - there are loads of places for froyo on the strip. This was from the self service counter at Wallgreens and was $5 which makes me never want to buy London froyo again.|
|Another s'more - this time from the Hershey's Cafe at New York New York (almost feel like we spent more time at this hotel than our own!).|
|I love how everything is made fresh in Shake Shack and despite it looking fast-food-y there's none of the fast food "ugh" factor.|
|First proper burger for a LONG time.|
The Forum Shops at Caesar's Palace was our favourite shopping destination. We had dinner in Trevi, opposite a replica Roman fountain and under a sky which is permanently at that moment when day becomes night.
|Coconut mojito and pomegranite cosmo.|
|Salads, American style.|
|Perfect setting for our last supper in Vegas.|
|Salted edamame while pondering the menu. Um, can I have it all..? Wait...I'm paying.|
|The famous 'chocolate' mask dessert was *almost* too beautiful to eat. We also shared a vegan dessert - a pineapple tart (what else?!) which tasted far too creamy and decadent to be vegan.|
