Last Full Day in Vegas

A week in Vegas flew by!  We had never gone to Vegas for more than four nights in the past, so we thought seven nights would be a lot ... but it really did fly by; I guess that's what happens when you're having fun. 

Christopher could not get over these cute slot machines. 
He loved 'em.
We chose to think of Encore as a resort, and basically not leave it, other than for the wedding and only two meals off of the property.  It was a great choice!  Encore is a small, less busy hotel, and it is gorgeous.  It has been awarded the AAA Five Diamond Award every year since it opened.  Also Encore, and it's sister property Wynn, collectively hold more Forbes Five-Star Awards than any other casino-resort in the world! 

Seriously, he was obsessed.  We couldn't even walk by them.
I'd say our favourite thing about this hotel was that it was not as crowded as others, and it was much smaller.  We also thought it was fancy, but not too fancy for us.  That being said, we loved our room at Cosmopolitan the best, and overall think that Palazzo is our favourite Las Vegas Hotel.

For lunch on Thursday we went back to Mizumi and shared some ramen.

In the evening we took at taxi to Bellagio to meet up with the newlyweds, Kaylee and Shane.  We visited a bit at Lily first.

Then we headed to Julian Serrano's LAGO.

When it comes to dinner views in Las Vegas, I'd venture to say we had the best.

We were on a patio, that was over the Bellagio fountain waters.  We were getting misted by the fountains.  It was insane!

And the food was incredible.  LAGO is a tapas-style Italian restaurant, with a few larger entrees.  Christopher and I definitely chose the tapas route, as that is our favourite way to dine.  We had some sashimi:

Some mini olive pizzas, which don't look like much, but were so good:

Margarita pizza:

And the best meatballs ever:

Everything was top-notch.

Christopher ordered tiramisu for dessert.

What a fantastic evening!

Another awesome thing about our trip ... we got to see one of our favourite DJs, DeadMau5, spin live in our hotel.  Wow.

Have you been to Vegas?  Where do you like to stay in Vegas?

Wow, your views at dinner were amazing and the food also looked and sounded amazing, too!

I have actually never been to Vegas!
