The Buffet

The Buffet at Wynn is the only buffet in town that competes with The Buffetat Bellagio for veggie extravagance. I find both buffets almost indistinguishable in their excellence, which perhaps isn’t surprising considering the two hotels’ shared lineage.


Benihanaat the Las Vegas Hilton offers some magnificent stir-fry veggies – along with an always-entertaining cooking show. In my experience, the chefs are highly accommodating to vegans. For example, they will make sure not to cook your food in butter, if you ask. The Hilton is just a short monorail ride from the MGM Grand.

Triple 7 Restaurant and Microbrewery(Downtown Las Vegas)

Triple 7 Restaurant and Microbrewery at Main Street Station has surprisingly good veggie sandwiches and a wonderful variety of vegetarian sushi. This place is also a fun venue to watch sports.

New Year’s Eve in Las Vegas was nothing short of spectacular!

From people winning jackpots to Robbie Maddison and Evil Knieval’s son jumping over the Mirage volcano to a multitude of celebrities hosting parties at the night clubs, it was surely a night to remember and the perfect way to ring in 2009!

Of course, it wouldn’t be a party without fireworks and the ones viewed from Luxor were gorgeous!

I have a confession. One of my biggest guilty pleasures is CatHouse‘s cotton candy. I can’t figure out why, but it’s slightly different than “normal” cotton candy. It’s lighter, more magical and there’s some flavor in it that makes you feel like a kid and an “adult” at the same time.

Needless to say, I look for any excuse to visit CatHouse and eat cotton candy. Last night provided just that 🙂 Yesterday, was the soft opening for CatHouse’s newest night, Closet Sundays. Of course, I had to check it out. As a hotel (and a company) we’re big on diversity. We’re also big on providing experiences for everyone and anyone. Closet Sundays provides an upscale Fashion Boutique ultralounge for those in the LGBT community and for those who just enjoy fashion. And wow, there are fashion shows, models and clothing companies galore at this event!

If you want to learn more about the event, view the official press release. While it doesn’t mention the fabulous cotton candy, it does go into more event details.
