i heart vegas

Have I mentioned here that I love Vegas? Maybe it's all the shiny lights and loud clunky sounds, but I think that it is just FUN to be there. Joe and I went late last week for our "honeymoon in vegas". We were not able to have a proper honeymoon when we were married ten years ago so we decided that this would be it. The official honeymoon.

We were able to hit Old Vegas this time, which we hadn't had a chance to do on prior visits. It was interesting to see the old signs (next time I would like to go at night to see them lit up), but other than that not much else to see.

However, we did get a chance to eat some of these...

Do you know what this is? Fried twinkie and fried oreos. Now, for those who know me, you know I love me some fried goodness. But I think, dear friends, that this steps over the line into sheer madness. These things actually made me sick to my stomach. Not at first, but the stomach ache lingered for several hours.

You may appreciate the casino in which we purchased said fried treats.

These women were wooing us into the place and gave us free shiny mardi gras beads and a chance to win some sort of prize in a drawing. But in the end what got us was the fried delights.

We did see Love while we were there. It was amazing as all Cirque du Soleil's tend to be. This one was very different as it was based on Beatles songs and therefore did not have the live music that they normally have, but they used the songs extremely well in telling there story.

The last evening we were there we went to a new restaurant at the Venetian called Tao. OMG!! Seriously, this was some of the best food I have ever had. For the appetizer we ordered the Satay of Chilean Sea Bass with Wok Roasted Asparagus. Long name for probably the best thing I have ever eaten in my life. I could have eaten plates and plates of this. It was outstanding! We spoke to the waiter, while looking at the desserts, and told him we were there for our belated ten year anniversary. We ordered the giant fortune cookies that was filled with chocolate mouse on one side and white chocolate mouse on the other. YUM!! When they brought it out they had written Happy 10 yr Anniversary on the plate. So nice! and delicious!
