Vegas: Wednesday

The boys went back to the car show on Wednesday, and I shopped with Vanessa and her mom.  We knew we wanted to go to a restaurant where Eric could get a good steak for dinner, and we checked out menus as we passed the many restaurants on the strip. 

Mon Ami Gabi, a French bistro in the Paris hotel, looked like a winner: it offered several steaks and the prices were right.  And they took reservations and had one available for us.

Dinner was delicious.  I think I heard several people say the phrase “best steak ever,” and they’ve eaten a lot of them so it wasn’t uttered lightly.

From dinner, we headed out to walk the streets.  It was Halloween, after all, so the people watching was even better than usual.

And now you are expecting pictures to back up that claim, but we didn’t take any.  Sorry!

Here, have any $80 beer instead.


The McHusband played some poker and got a “free” beer served to him.  He and I both wish he’d had to pay for it.

Some random pictures from the Bellagio.





We visited the Jean Philippe Patisserie with its huge chocolate fountain, which has been certified by Guinness as the largest chocolate fountain in the world.


In honor of Halloween, two chocolatiers spent 70 hours creating this chocolate skeleton.


Why yes, I think we will help ourselves to a gulp.



Delicious!  We may be too old for trick-or-treating, but I hope I’m never too old to indulge in a chocolate fountain.
