On the way to Vegas, I remembered to try something out that happened while I was at home and our internet connection got knocked out. You can use Picmonkey without a network, as long as the window is already open. Score!
On our drive, stopped at Fatburger, and I thought it would be fun to practice my food blogging for The Episodic Eater.
Besides, nothing beats a burger, fries, and a shake for some great roadside eats!
Once we arrived in Las Vegas, we stayed at The Palazzo, which is enormous!
This wasn't my big win, but one of our party got a little lucky!
We ate dinner at my most-visited restaurant in Las Vegas: Bouchon Bistro!
The dishes were as gorgeous as ever, including a dessert that I absolutely loved and the pasta of the day below. Mmmm! To see the whole menu from start to finish, click here for the recap on The Episodic Eater.
The next day, we wanted to catch the World Cup game with our meal, so we stopped at I ♥ Burgers. This was the one I ordered!
Someone else loved hot dogs instead, but it did look good. :) To see more, including a Korean-inspired burger with sriracha sauce and a fried egg, click here!
Dinner was at Zeffirino, and we had some delicious, authentic Italian food!
This mushroom risotto was the best I have tasted in a very long time. See the whole meal on The Episodic Eater!
Lastly, we ended the meal with gelato at Espressamente illy. There were SO many flavors to choose from. In fact, this is only 1/3 of the flavors below!
After some deliberation, I ended up choosing blood orange. Yum!
And that was our weekend in Vegas! Lots of food, fun, and hanging out in the hot, hot dessert! On the way back, I snapped this picture from the window of the car. The picture doesn't do it justice, but it was so pretty. :)
Are you road trippin' this summer?
