We are not doing a lot of thinking about restaurants. It is a little overwhelming with so many restaurants in each casino. The only night we know we want to eat at a specific casino is probably our first night when we see Penn and Teller at the Rio. Since it is off strip will will head over there early and eat then see the show.

Are there any places we should avoid?

Also, I have searched for good exotic or theme restaurants at Taylor's request and cant find any. Looks like Vegas is just not the place for that sort of thing. But on the off chance anyone has a suggestion please let me know. For themes we are not looking for places like Dick's Last Resort or Rain Forest Cafe. Sushi is no where near our exotic meter. Anywhere unique?

It's not unique, but one of the buffets at Rio, Carnival World, is really great. Tons of choices and everything I tried was really fresh. It would be a fun option for dinner before Penn & Teller.

Mon Ami Gabi at Paris may be a option for a meal. The patio is across the strip from the Bellagio fountains

Hash House A Go Go...there is one at the Imperial Palace or the day you visit downtown there is one now at the Plaza.

The day you have a car you can visit Firefly. It's a tapas restaurant not far from the Hard Rock Hotel Casino. YUMMY food and it's easier to control portions with tapas. There was one at the Plaza before the remodel.

Also downtown at Golden Nugget is an Italian place called The Grotto overlooking the pool. Yummy food. We had lunch one day, we just stumbled upon it. The strawberry cake thing was so good, we went back downtown for dinner one night just so I could order dessert!

Belagio fountains...have a meal at Mon Ami Gabi and you can see the fountains from the restaurant.

I like to eat well in Vegas!

We're leaving in the morning!
I am doing a last minute load of laundry then I will be all packed.

I have given up on my dream of hiking. I know we wont be getting up early enough to get out there before it is WAY too hot.
DH made reservations at Fiamma in the MGM Grand for just the two of us. Well be eating there before we see KA.

Wednesday is National Relaxation Day. The Flamingo is offering a discount on 50 minute massages and facials so I booked both for that morning! I cant wait!

We have been many many times. Want to try new things but still go back to old favorites. If you go to the Ice Bar at Mandalay Bay there is a great Burger Bar in the same area. Otherwise the burgers are awesome at the Burger Brasserie in the hall between Ballys and Paris.
You may want to consider the 24 hour buffet which includes 6 of Caesars properties and includes Carnival World at Rio (one of our faves). Start it for a late evening dinner, then use it for breakfast, lunch and an earlier dinner the second day. Just make sure you make it to the cash register within 24 hours of buying the pass.
Another place we never miss is Battista's Hole in the Wall. If you like the history of kitchy things in Vegas then you will have to walk around and look at all of the pictures on the wall. It is a bit of a hole-in-the-wall but the Italian food is great. Located on Audrie St right behind the Flamingo.
Too many shows to mention and last minute is a good option with so many half price ticket kiosks along the Strip. Still have to book ahead for the busier shows.
Hope you have a wonderful trip!!
