VEGAS UNCORKED -Julian Serrano at Bellagio Masters’ Series Luncheon

OH MY OH MY .... one of the best meals i have had in a very long time....the company at the table of six and the vast interesting information we were giving by the host , chef , and sommelier were exceptional .... and the visuals in the restaurant were a feast to the eyes as much as the food was a feast of extraordinary tastes....  need i gush more .... i would definitely put this restaurant on my list of must do's while in las vegas 

the wine selection was amazing
and the place setting was a feast for the eyes 

                                      love the eye watching me enjoy every mouthful

                     and yes i took a bite before i took the picture.... i could not help myself

VEGAS The Peppermill Restaurant & Fireside Lounge

a few years ago my friend introduce me to the Peppermill and Fireside..... a very strange combo on Las Vegas blvd. down by the wedding chapels ... and not only is it open 24/7 the food is as good as any diner food....... even by  NJ diner standards...the diner has round booths and plastic flora everywhere .... but the gem is the fire pit is a lounge left over from the 1970's  and it is not to be missed ...including a dancing waters in 1970's fire pit ..... if you go during the daylight hours venture back to the very dark windowless lounge ( and lounge is the perfect word to describe the room ) and have one of the best and largest bloody marys i have ever seen and put your stylish feet up in the fire pit and see if you can hear Elvis singing "Viva Las Vegas"

last year this event was a mess..... hot and overcrowded... but this year was amazing ...lots of space, good weather and every kind of food and drink you could want... a few too many sliders, but no one went home hungry and if you did , shame on you..... then we settled in at the pool bar for some patron cocktails.... mine was with cucumbers and it was amazing ... each chef out did themselves this year and the presentations were beautiful with flavors to match.....a great time was had by all i spoke to ... cheers to  Patron and Uncorked

Vegas Uncorked and After Hours at Tom Colicchio's Craftsteak

what can i say the drinks were good  and service was ?? (see picture)  but the Rappahannock River Oysters were the best ( just like me the oysters were from Virginia) and just like me a little sweet and a little salty......the rest of the event i did not find very stylish but a blast just the same .... a lot of really nice people and we all enjoyed the bad piano music ... all in all a score ...


please excuse the picture focus ... i could blame it on champagne but really i am the worst photog ever.... anyway the dinner ...

Masters’ Series Dinner Payard Patisserie & Bistro... was amazing........ the meat course was paired with the perfect wine and made carnivores out of even the girly est girl.... and the presentation was a stylish as it comes .... i love a pretty plate that has flavors that far exceed the look...the dessert came with gold flake and was beautiful, flirty and fun and i ate almost every bite....for food lovers the masters dinners are amazing year think about a trip is a way to experience dining at it's best

vegas uncorked started this year out ....with a bang or should i say a POP .... champagne toast at the fountains in front of the Bellagio ... but we had our own "start your engines" poolside at Ceasar's with MOJITOS ... the sun was warm and the drinks were delicious...... and they were made with Patron tequila... giving them an extra yummy factor... now that is stylish even for me ...oops they are empty do you see our waitress????
