Las Vegas, Part III: Here and There

After I said goodbye to Mom, I met up with my coworkers at Wolfgang Puck Postrio Bar & Grill at the Venetian for a delicious Italian dinner.  It was the best meal I ate in Las Vegas.  I had a rigatoni with fennel sausage bolognese, and I ate every bit.  Delicious.

Intense Venetian ceiling!

From there, we took a taxi to our home away from home for a few days: the J.W. Marriott Las Vegas Resort & Spa.  It was definitely not close to the strip (more Summerlin than Vegas, really) but was a peaceful retreat with mountain views.  The decor was a bit dated, but the rooms were large and the bed super-comfy.


I had a great time getting to know my coworkers.  We were working during the day, but every meal together helped me learn more about the people I work with every day.  I also got to relax myself; I made sure to get plenty of sleep, plus I had an amazing custom facial at the Aquae Sulis Spa.

On our last night in Vegas, we all headed to the strip for a Cajun/steak dinner at Voodoo Steak at the Rio.  Second favorite meal in Sin City; great steak, sides, and cocktails... I recommend the pineapple mojito and truffle mac & cheese.  The balcony also has ana amazing view of the Strip.

Afterwards, we capped off the night with a campy romp at MJ Live, a Michael Jackson tribute show.  It wasn't the most splashy Las Vegas show, but it was entertaining and memorable.

Even though Las Vegas was a blast, I think it was time for me to go home.  Nashville was calling my name!  And sure enough, even though it was snowing when I left, it was warming up when I returned. I'm happy to be back in Nashvegas.
