We stopped by to eat at 24/Seven Cafe at the Palms Hotel on Thursday, March 22nd. We shared the Kung Pao Chicken and an Asian Chicken Salad. They both tasted really good. Next, we went to see the movie Funny Games. It’s a thriller. A family is tortured by two gentlemen who make them do disturbing things in order to stay alive. It’s a messed up movie. It was very tense throughout the movie since you weren’t sure what could happen next. If you want to see a twisted thriller.. go watch it.
On March 21st, we had two Austrian couchsurfers staying with us. We took Julie and Kathy to Dos Caminos in the Palazzo. We all shared the Guacamole. It’s certainly the best guacamole I’ve ever had. It’s has fresh ingredients and it’s just so creamy. Mmmm! Ivan and I shared the Cazuela De Queso Fundido with Roasted garlic, artichoke hearts and spinach. You just pile the fundido onto a tortilla and eat it. It’s quite good. Then we had the Roasted Plantain Empanadas. It was tasty. We had two red Sangrias. We shared the Grilled Shrimp Quesadilla. This dish had shrimp, cheese, and spices on a tortilla. It was fried.. wow, it was a delicious entree. The girls went to see La Reve. Ivan and I chilled at Blush inside the Wynn. It was an open bar event for an hour so we had a few drinks. It was nice since they weren’t being strict about people sitting at the VIP tables. We met the girls after their show. We stopped by Diablo’s Cantina at Monte Carlo. We met my cousin Charisse and her friends there. We had a Strawberry Margarita. There’s a balcony on the second floor of Diablo’s. There’s a dancing area and lots of couches to sit at. You can also sit at the bar. It’s really loud here. They play mostly r&b, rap and pop. I don’t really enjoy all the music. The margaritas are really good at Diablo’s.
We went to the pool in the afternoon on Saturday, March 22nd. We swam a bit and then laid out by the pool. It was a little chilly at times since there was a breeze. There was a lot of people at the pool. The jacuzzi was packed. There was only a few people actually in the big pool.
That night, Ivan and I went to Trattoria del Lupo at the Mandalay Bay. The appetizer dish we had was the Roasted Peppers and White Anchovies. It comes with bruschetta and you put the red and yellow peppers and anchovies on top. I don’t like anchovies.. but it’s great with only the peppers. We shared a Marinara Pizza. This had a nice marinara sauce with cheese. We also had another dish the Atlantic Salmon. The salmon was perfectly cooked. I loved it since it was crunchy on top. It was accompanied by spinach and roasted potatoes.
After dinner, we headed to the Events Center to see Fergie. She sang a few of her songs, some Black Eyed Peas songs and a bunch of covers. She sings alright.. but she still looks like a man to me. We left early to head to karaoke.
We met Michelle and Clark and their friends at Kelley’s Pub. Ivan sang “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” with Michelle and Joel. It was quite funny. My friend Alisa came too. Karaoke is always fun. We have some drinks, sing, and laugh. Ivan and I went up to sing “How Much is that Doggy” in the Window? Ivan sang while I did the barking sounds. I didn’t want to do it at first.. but it was actually fun doing the dog sounds. I like listening to people sing.. it’s always funny when they can’t sing. I hate hearing the country music. I just make funny faces during the country songs. Ivan was getting tired so we were going to leave. I told the host Lesley that we would be making an exit. She said we could sing our last song next if we wanted. So, we decided to sing. We sang Sonny and Cher’s I Got You Babe. But, Ivan did the Cher part and I did Sonny’s.
