On January 2nd, Bob and I flew to Las Vegas to meet some friends there for a quick weekend visit. We stayed at the beautiful Palaazo Hotel, Resort, Casino and had dinner at Cut -- which is Wolfgang Puck’s critically acclaimed steak house. Bob and Dan had an appetizer called "Bone Marrow Flan, Mushroom Marmalade". It was served in a bone! They said it didn't taste bad, and I even tried it. It was.....well....I couldn't get past the name or the presentation. In one word: gross.
Friday night we went and saw "O" Cirque du Soleil at the Bellagio. It was FANTASTIC! Words can't even describe it. I've never seen a show like it and would totally go again. It was a show that had "world-class acrobats, synchronized swimmers, divers and characters perform in, on, and above water to create a breathtaking experience in a magnificent theatre reminiscent of a European opera house". I couldn't have said it better myself. We had a great time!
As an added bonus, we met another set of friends who just happened to be in Vegas at the same time. We all watched our Indianapolis Colts loose to the Chargers in an NFL play off game. We were very sad to see the Colts loose, but had a great time with our friends watching the game.
Overall, we had a great weekend. It's always good to get away for a few days, just the two of us. Thank you to my mother-in-law for watching the kiddos for us!
