foood.

I think our favorite part of vegas was the food (though close call with pool lounging). I took your recommendations and went with them blindly, and they did not disappoint! Thank you for all your advice. We didn't end up seeing any shows or making it too far away from the strip, and as I look back through your comments we/I did a lot of what you recommended. (Sara, you rock. I should have took notes on your recommendations because I forgot a lot of them!) 

So this is a review of places we ate at...feel free to skip or save it away for when you go to Vegas. Otherwise it isn't really interesting (unless you go somewhere that has these same places or like reading about restaurants?)

We went to the grand lux at the Venetian (which is a part of the cheesecake factory). It was great! One of the best burgers I've ever had (I almost licked the rest of the chipotle mayo out of its bowl...) and the spinach artichoke dip was sooo good. The Venetian is also one of the 2 classier casinos on the strip so it was nice to walk around. 

We also ate at Serendipity 3 for a late dinner (I think it was 10:00?). We had to wait for a little bit and the service wasn't great (I think he was mad at us for 1. not ordering alcohol and 2. splitting an entree and 3. using a coupon for a free frozen hot chocolate. we were very low maintenance but he wasn't very nice.) However, it was some of the best mac & cheese I've ever had! The frozen hot chocolate (for which they are famous?) was like a classy frosty, but still good. Also, the menu was very large. 

I ate twice at La Creperie and it was delicious!! I first tried a sweet crepe and had to go back later in the week so I could try a savory crepe. yuuuum. 

I also got some pizza for us at Grimaldi's. This was a place we wanted to try when we went to New York city all those years ago but didn't get to. I was pleasantly surprised to learn they were in Vegas. We've had a lot of gooood pizza over the last few years, and I can't say this was the best but it was definitely delicious. 

We also walked down to the Coke store and tried their float tray. We were interested in the cokes from around the world but a lot of the reviews said that a lot of them were gross and we didn't want to pay for crappy coke (when we don't even really like coke!). We loved the fanta floats. 

I also browsed through the Sugar Factory which I guess is also famous and has expensive lolly pops (uh, $22??) (maybe I'm just super cheap?). They had delicious looking desserts as well (and a restaurant).  Dave also 

Also, it may look like we did this all in one day cause Dave has the same shirt on in all the pictures. He just wore the same non-collared shirt every day after his classes (we pack light).

So anyway, here are some pictures from our foodie adventures. I know it's kind of lame to take pictures of all your food so I just took a few :)

And ok, I need a crepe right now.
