A weekend in Vegas

I was feeling the winter blues and decided to book a weekend trip to Vegas with some friends because life is too short to be sad.


You can't go wrong with any of the hotels, they are all very accommodating and accessible. My top picks to stay at and/or explore when you want something to do are as follows:

The Mirage: such a beautiful hotel with lots of natural elements, an aquarium and dolphins.
Bally's: we stayed in this hotel and we enjoyed the simplicity and the outdoor market
Bellagio: stunning fountains, and a beautiful artistic interior
Caesars Palace: I would not stay in this hotel but the built-in mall, casino and restaurants are stellar!
The Cosmopolitan: so fucking beautiful + secret bars and treats
The Venetian: a stunning, slice of Roman-inspired architecture with beautiful Renaissance-style canals and stores


Every place we went to was very accommodating to my food allergies and offered lots of menu options for almost any diet:

Americano: we went here 3 times for dinner and breakfast, epic
Margaritaville: delicious fish sandwiches and margaritas
The Pantry: French-inspired restaurant open basically 24/7 with freshly baked sweets and treats
Nobu: the sushi will melt in your mouth, this is not an exaggeration
Ramen-ya: RAMEN, HELLO!!!! Cheap, delicious and easy
Alexxa's: a giant bowl of alcohol + brunch
Fat Tuesdays: slushy alcoholic beverages in portable cups...need I say more?
Vanderpump Cocktail Garden: a boujee ass cocktail bar with dark Alice in Wonderland vibes - get the velveteen rabbit drink!


Drag Show: this is a great event to hit up with some friends for drinks, laughs and drag!
OMNIA: buy tickets ahead of time, good music and atmosphere (see Zedd if you can)
Zak Bagans' Haunted Museum: hands down the best spooky time, a great tour with lots of history and horror
Neon Museum: an interesting set up of cool exhibit spaces, best to see it at night
The Strip: just explore the north and south ends at your own leisure or with a drink
High Roller: 30 minutes on a Ferris wheel with an all-you-can-drink bar for $45
Fremont Street: a must-see at night, with lots of lights and fun!
