Vegas 2011 - Day Three

I was dying to try Simon's Pajama Brunch at The Palms.  No one recommended it to me, but I read about it online and saw it featured on an episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.  It wasn't hard to convince everyone else to go.  I had Jason at "Bloody Mary Bar" and I had the other's at "Junk Food Plate."  They even have a candy bar as you leave, but we were all too full to make a bag.

Simply Heaven and I will eat here every time I come to Vegas!

The "Junk Food Plate" at Simon

The Pigs in a Blanket off of the "White Trash" section of the Simon menu

I had to have some fruit loops and dirt cake with my bottomless mimosa!   Breakfast of champions!

Amanda ordered the banana and nutella crepe...so yummy!
The boys decided to spend Sunday betting on football games so we split up.  They headed to Caesar's and Amanda and I went shopping!  We didn't feel too guilty spending a little money since we knew the boys were spending it gambling on games.  At least we knew would be come out with something to show for it.  And boy did we...

We went to lots of stores around Palazzo, Venetian and Planet Hollywood, but spent most of our money at Tory Burch and H&M!

We didn't make it out of the Tory Burch store without buying matching bracelets and a few other goodies!

After shopping all day we needed a little treat at Sugar Factory.

Almond Joy Martini at Sweet Factory

S'mores Martini



Flamingos at Flamingo

After stomping around Vegas some more looking for those darn flamingos (at least we burned a lot of calories), we finally met back up with the boys and played some black jack...trying to win my shopping money back! 

I finished the weekend out strong at the Pussycat Lounge! 

For dinner, we went to Aureole at Mandalay Bay.  Jason has been wanting to try this place for years!  They have received lots of awards and are known for their "wine angels stewards" who ascend the four-story wine tower to retrieve the bottles of wine.  It was a beautiful restaurant, the wine tower was neat to see, but the food was sub-par, at least the night we were there compared to all of our other meals. 

Carter had could really rate the steak by then, because that is what he had all three nights! 







Aureole's electronic wine list!  You just click on what you want and they bring it out to you.

Awful picture of the four-story wine tower.  I tried!
 We finished the trip off with a visit to The Fright Dome at Circus Circus.  We did a few of the haunted houses including Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Halloween which were really good.  This was voted one the scariest haunted houses in the nation. 

Another scary thing we saw was Circus Circus itself.  Old hotel that is not very nice and in not a great part of town.  Unless you are going for Fright Dome, skip this one! 


We had a great trip and can't wait for the next one!
