About Me

My photo
Island girl & Vegas junkie. Sharing my obsession of Sin City. Off the strip, on the strip, dining, hotels, & fashion. No fancy schmancy camera (at least not yet) but I hope you enjoy my view of this wonderful playland in the dessert and some fillers here & there of my hermit lifestyle.

Yes, it's the same machine. Remember this post is late, so actually the one you saw previously is actually the one that hit again.

The Meridian

The Meridian Condos. A gated complex behind the strip.

Pool View

After two years of Video Poker, the Royal Flush has graced my presence at the Bellagio.

We got lake view...and what a view it is

Before the Rain

Bellagio Conservatory

The white carnations on the snowmen were changed daily when we were there.

A great way to start the day

Yes, can you believe it!! Not back to back, but a few pulls later. This is a favorite machine that one must go back to.

Cut at Palazzo Resort & Casino

This was not our first choice, but we are glad we ended up here. You see, our reservationists, Yuko at the Bellagio mentioned the restaurant Switch at the new Encore. We got there and long story short we were denied!! Proper attire required. Chino’s and a Nike colored shirt does not cut it!! So we were, well I was so sad. I mean anyone who is denied must feel a sense of unworthiness. Anyway, feeling badly rejected, we didn’t even venture to see what Enore had to offer. Back to the Palazzo and ate at Cut.

Steak lovers this is one not to miss!! The food was absolutely to die for. If you have never tasted Wagyu and are in the mood to dish a little moola, this is the place to splurge. Compliments of the chef, we were offered these cute little cheese breads, very delicious. Cheese breadsticks and a choice of pretzel, focaccia or pumpernickel bread were served before dinner. A little lesson in the cuts of meat (Morton style) helped decided what was for dinner. Passed on appetizers this was a good thing, the Waygu, although only 8 oz. was very filling. When the waiter said that the wagyu melts in your mouth, it literally does!! We ordered a sampler and an 8oz Wagyu. The sampler included an American corn fed Kobe, Japanese Kobe, and the crème de la crème of Kobe, Japanese imported Wagyu. Compared to the other two pieces, I quickly snubbed the American Kobe because of its dryness. FYI, the waiter will recommend you order your steaks medium rare, which I was hesitant to do, but it was perfect. Desert was a chocolate soufflé and cappuccino. If you are too stuffed to order desert, then worry not, you’ll actually receive a mini dish of brownies and some kind of lemon bar with your check.The brownies were yummy. Overall, this was a wonderful dinner and I think it should become a tradition.

The Bathroom

The Bathroom. I just had to take a picture.
