When it came to visiting Vegas, I was most looking forward to the dining and entertainment. I started thinking about restaurant options and shows to see way back in November. It was a big decision.
I’m a sucker for a celebrity chef, so my desire to eat at a celebrity chef’s restaurant helped to narrow down the options. From there, it was finding a place that Jason would like. You see, my husband, whom I love very much, is a…particular eater. Meat and potatoes, that’s what he’s all about. So after looking over a bunch of restaurant menus online, I suggested Lagasse’s Stadium.
Lagasse’s Stadium is obviously one of Emeril Lagasse’s restaurants. It’s a sports bar and sports book located in the Palazzo. Originally, we made reservations for the dining room. But when we arrived early and found out that there was availability in the stadium seating area, we lucked out.
After a day of walking, we enjoyed a comfortable couch and stools to put our feet up on. Seriously, it was the best thing ever.
We started out with a giant pretzel and beer cheese sauce. The sauce had a little kick thanks to jalapenos. For entrees, I enjoyed buffalo wings and Jason had fried chicken. We both agreed that the food was great. We also fell in love with the atmosphere. It would be an awesome place to dine during March Madness, college football season, or any other big sporting event.
Buffalo Wings – Yum!
After dinner, we headed back to the Bellagio for a very special treat – We had tickets Cirque du Soleil’s “O”. Honestly, this was an even bigger decision than where to eat. Jason looked into tickets as a surprise for me way back in November. Then he broke to me how much the tickets cost. It seemed like too much of a splurge. We started to contemplate other options.
A week or so before our trip, we had some friends over. They had just gotten back from Vegas (and have been to Vegas many times), and they really recommended seeing a Cirque du Soleil show. Honestly, we didn’t even make a decision until we got out there. We made it an anniversary gift to ourselves and went for it. It’s all I really wanted to see.
It. Was. Awesome! Worth every single penny.
Our final night in Vegas was perfect. A great meal and an incredible show. That is my Vegas!
