My brother and I are taking our Mom to Vegas for her 65th birthday. Her first time, my 10th (?) time, my brother's 2nd or 3rd time. Here's the rough plan:
Arrive Saturday, staying at Bellagio. Low key lunch at pool. Cab to Mix for sunset drinks, then Isla for dinner (I'm a little worried that Mix will be packed, but we'll be there early-ish). My Mom is from the east coast so she'll have a bit of jet lag.
Sunday: pool day, cafe breakfast/lunch. We have "O" tickets at 7pm. Thinking Carnevino pre-theater menu, or Bellagio buffet (we have to do it once, Mom has never been to Vegas...); after the show, maybe we walk down the strip for drinks somewhere...ideas?
Monday: Another low-key day at pool, maybe some shopping. Monday night I plan to get a limo for a more offbeat Vegas tour. Peppermill for cocktails, Lotus of Siam for food, Luv-it frozen custard for dessert, then downtown for the Fremont Experience and a few casinos.
Sunday (her birthday): breakfast at Bouchon, more pool or shopping. I had considered Rosemary's for dinner but feel like the last night should be more "Vegas." Thinking about Kokomo's or Onda. Farewell cocktail back at Bellagio?
Thoughts on the dinner choices, ideas for drinks, are more than welcome. We'll have four people total for all dinners. I also haven't spent much time thinking about lunches, since I figure we'll play our days by ear (and we all want to relax by the pool!). But if there's a lunch place that is a standout, I'd love to hear about it. Thanks!
