I’d been stoked to see Lady Gaga for as long as I remember…since I became a fan of her’s last year. My dream came true last week when I headed to the Palms Casino Resort to catch her concert.
I had tickets in the upper level and was a little scared we’d be too far away, but I was excited to see that no seat in the house was bad. The show was a blast, and you can read my full review here.
While in Vegas, we dined at a couple beautiful restaurants. The Society Café at the Encore at the Wynn lured us in because of a sign proclaiming the restaurant had been named one of the Best New Restaurants in America, 2009, by Esquire magazine. It’s no wonder why–the place was gorgeous and the food delicious.
The restaurant had a funky, modern decor with hot pink seats, lots of fresh plants and bright lighting.
I had a Trenne pasta ($20), with parmesan truffle cream and diced tomatoes. Just look at it–it’s beautiful and tasted wonderful, too.
My pal got the best-looking ham and cheese sandwich I’ve ever seen ($12), with a poached egg on top.
We also ate at Nobhill Tavern at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino. The dark and cozy restaurant had a huge selection of wine, with some bottles costing more than $1,000.
We had berry mojitos, truffle-infused macaroni, cream of celery soup, creme brulee, fish and more. Check out the deliciousness.
Everything was great, but what I really liked was the ambiance. We were seated in a booth that was a super-private experience, since the booths were separated by glass panels.
To make my Vegas trip even sweeter, I won $100 on my fave Vegas game, the horse racing track at MGM. Score!
