I realize that it’s Wednesday and halfway through the week, but after Black Label, pool parties, phone losses (R.I.P. Galaxy S3), and delayed flights, give me a break – Vegas happened.
Everything is a little more baller in Sin City, and that includes the food. While we munched on whatever would sustain us during the daytime (hello Earl of Sandwich, the least expensive and delicious meal in the land); the nighttime brought disco lights and dinner delights. It was also the last weekend I could effectively pull the birthday card and snag some desserts, essential before any tequila shot.
As I slowly, and I mean slowly, acclimate back to the real world, here are some photos of the yummz from the weekend. This was the first time I had the opportunity to eat out in this fashion, and I’m glad I could. While alcohol is all well and good, to me, food is ultimately worth spending money on because it’s much more delicious and it is much more innovative and creative than a $20 Red Bull-vodka (why?).
If you’ve been to Vegas before, where all have you eaten that you liked/disliked?
Purple drank at Marquee Day Club. I didn’t try this myself, but I’m sure Lil Wayne would be proud of this grape-flavored sizzurp.
Although not as good as the Earl of Sandwich (seriously, this place hits the spot, day or night), the Oscar Mayer truck tries to show Vegas who the hot dog king is.
Our final dinner out was at STK, a steakhouse in the Cosmopolitan hotel. I don’t eat steak, but there were a good amount of options for me to choose from. Also, did I mention that this steakhouse was also the restaurant equivalent of a clubhouse? Think people dancing on tables, strutting down the aisles, and spontaneous sing-a-longs to rap songs. We could have easily stayed here all night if we hadn’t make other plans. The food is delicious too – these complimentary buttery rolls with pesto were on another level.
A dramatic presentation with the seafood platter, my entree for the night. I wasn’t a fan of the lobster, as it was too fishy for me, but the oysters were unbelievable, and the marinated prawns turnt up.
The last of the birthday eats, and what a fitting one – a peanut butter, Oreo, and raspberry cheesecake. Yes, cheesecake, my all-time-favorite food ever, and a fitting ending meal to carry me through the rest of the trip.
