Viva Las Vegas !

Okay, quiz time: Who sang the song, "Viva, Las Vegas"? Answer at the bottom.

We had specific goals to do and see in Vegas.  I used to work for an engineering company and they sent me there many, many times to support their local work and to win new work. So, we've been there over 50 times but not for at least 5 years.

One buffet a day !

WICKED SPOON in the Cosmopolitan

Some of the deserts

First round at the buffet

My desert choices

Kim's desert choices
BACCHANAL BUFFET at Caesar's Palace.

This one was disappointing. Too crowded. Food was average and crowd patterns were jammed.
BAYSIDE BUFFET at Mandalay Bay.
We went to see the outside gardens but wandered (?) in to get some food. This one is one of our favorites

STUDIO B BUFFET at The M Resort.

We went here as a last minute choice for our last night's dinner. Turned out to be very good.
Gotta love those deserts !

Next Goal: Eat breakfast at Trump Tower

This was the salmon breakfast plate....before.

So much to eat....after.

Breakfast restaurant


Next Goal: Take a gondola ride in Venetian.
This is something we've wanted to do for years....finally got to it. Wonderful.

Our Gondolier, Rocco. You can request a song for him to sing. We asked for "Arrivederci Roma". He was terrific and then he sang about seven more for us.

Next Goal: Go up the Eiffel Tower

View looking south

Paris hotel from the top

Arc de Triomph at the entrance to Paris hotel

Bellagio fountains in the background.

This tower is half-scale to the one in Paris, France.

Next Goal: see the Bellagio fountain show.

at 3pm during the weekdays, they start with Whitney Houston singing, "Star Spangled Banner", followed by "Time to Say Goodbye" with Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman. Here's the link. You should watch it.

This is was the infrastructure for the fountain show looks like from above.

Answer: Elvis !
