Las Vegas Vacation: Shopping and Gordon Ramsey Pub & Grill
I really wanted to have lunch at the Beer Garden in Unami Burger at the SLS--it's outside, and look how cool it is! I love the antler chandeliers.
Unfortunately, it wasn't open...not sure if it opens later in the evening or if it was just too windy.
So instead, we ate inside, and it wasn't quite as cool.
Joel had the unami burger and sweet potato fries. I had the beef barbacoa nachos and a margarita.
After lunch, we walk across the street to take a look at "the world's largest souvenir shop".
It could be called the worlds most expensive junk shop. It's really not that cool, although we did purchase a bottle opener and a magnet.
The lights of the store look awesome at night though!
After that little outing, we just relaxed until our evening outing.
Ready for our night out!
We had reservations at Gordon Ramsey's Pub and Grill at Caesars Palace, so we went early and did some shopping...mostly window shopping. The displays in some of the stores are so over the top!
After years of watching Hell's Kitchen, Joel finally made it to a Gordon Ramsey restaurant.
He had chicken curry, and I had Shepard's Pie and a "God Save the Queen" cocktail.
To be honest, it wasn't really that amazing for all the hype and the price of the dishes, but we had a nice time talking and people watching as our seat looked out into the casino.
After dinner, we walked over to the Bellagio Fountains to see the show, but after waiting in the cold for 20 minutes, they announced they were cancelled because of the wind. Boo. So we walked over the the Flamingo and discovered that they actually have real Flamingos!
We wrapped up our night in the LINQ promenade area with a cupcake sundae from Sprinkles Cupcakes. Red velvet cupcake with mocha almond fudge ice cream. Yum!
