I forgot to post about our amazing weekend in Las Vegas! WHAT! Unacceptable! Kara, Meradith, and I had a fantastic weekend in Vegas and I am SO happy I got to visit Kara on her birthday weekend! I had to go before I started back at Disneyland, and Gaga was in town, it was just meant to be!!
First of all: GAGAAAAAAAAA!!!! Seeing her in concert was one of my “bucket list” type of things to do, so I couldn’t wait to go with one of my best friends! 😀
Kara is also my BFF because she gets the best hookupssss as one of the best PR associates in the state!!! :p We had a beyond amazing 10 course meal at Joel Robouchon’s L’Atelier at the MGM Grand before the concert. The quail stuffed with fois gras is one of their signature dishes, as you can see on the website, and it was exquisite. I highly recommend this intriguing dining spot if you are ever in Vegas. The photo below features some of the other dishes we ate including lobster, oysters, and stuffed peppers with shaved parmesan. Oh and we also got four desserts each. YUM.
For Kara’s second evening of birthday celebrations we headed to the Gold Spike in Downtown Las Vegas which has something for everyone! Including guys who buy you drinks all night and move on to the closest flowery skirt wearing hooker he can find when he knows it’s not going to happen! BUT let’s not discuss that! 🙂 There’s a cute band, a DJ, hopscotch, inside and outside bars, pool tables, pizza, etc! The Gold Spike is also “home” to Zappos’s “Campus” or whatever Google-type community thing they’re trying to do. Overall a great night! We got our makeup done at Sephora before going out. I mean, we did ALL of my favorite things!!!!
To close out the weekend I went and saw my gorgeous friends in the new and improved Jubilee! -The Showgirl Reborn! I must say I had a great time even though some songs were just out of place and some changes were cringe worthy. I LOVED seeing everyone in the show. They are so talented and I can’t believe I am lucky enough to call the cast my friends and family forever. So lucky to have been in the show as well! Missing those glamorous showgirl days!
