I just had to write to tell you we just returned home to New Jersey from Vegas. We were there visiting my daughter from Dec. 20, 2010 to Jan. 4, 2011. We go every year and this year we enjoyed ourselves more then ever. My daughter and husband took us to so many places. They are performers, daughter is in American Superstars as a dancer and her husband is in Zen Magic at Planet Hollywood and Triumph at the Hilton.
Both American Superstars and Zen are great shows if you haven’t seen them. Zen was a different magic show then we have seen before since it was more of a production with dancing, acrobats, silks and the hoop. Ai and Yuki are the cutest ever. We didn’t get to see Triumph since it was dark during the holidays and will be back the middle to end of this month and we hope to see it next time. We also saw the Sinatra show and it was fantastic.
We really didn’t expect the cold that you had but when we saw what back home in Jersey was going through we figured we still came out ahead. 😉
We went to some new restaurants this year and one was really special called Panevino (246 Via Antonio Avenue, Las Vegas). We went in the evening and the view was beautiful and the service exceptional. I used to work in New York City and have been to many good restaurants but I have to tell you the food, service and atmosphere here was exceptional.
Another place we liked was Le Cave which is in the Wynn. It is like a small winery and my daughter loved it. I think it was made better for the waiter we had. I don’t know his name but he was from Poland. It did not outdo the Panevino though, I think it is going to be hard to top that place in my mind. 😉
Anyway, just thought I drop a line and tell you we love visiting Vegas and who knows maybe might end up moving there one day. It is a very nice city, from the strip to the mountains. The views you have are beautiful. The people are also very friendly.
Thank you for your newsletters, I enjoy reading them and want to wish you a very happy and prosperous new year.
Enjoy and be happy,
Wow, thanks for the detailed report! I’ve indeed dined at Panavino. In addition to the great food and service, the distant view (about 2 miles from Mandalay Bay) of The Strip is incredible, especially around the time the sun sets.
Have not been to La Cave at Wynn, but it is getting rave reviews from all who go and is on our short list to check out.
Fortunately, the unusual cold we had around the end of the year has ended. Unfortunately, not in time for your visit. But let’s hope for better weather on your next trip!
