If you are planning a moms weekend, definitely take your sisters or friends and go to Las Vegas. If you want to get a lot done in around 36 hours, Las Vegas is the place to do it. I flew in to meet my sisters on Friday night after work at 10pm for a quick Mother’s Day getaway and we started our weekend by having dinner at the Carbone restaurant at the Aria Hotel. The food was traditional Northern Italian cuisine and I felt like I was in Italy. The service was impeccable and we ate everything from ravioli with ragu to almond marzipan cake for dessert with lots of rose wine. After that we spent the night playing a little poker, craps, and roulette.
On Saturday morning, we went to brunch at the Bardot Brasserie which was a Parisian bistro. We had crepes, eggs benedict, and brioche french toast. We then spent the day at the Aria spa and tried their sauna and salt meditation rooms before hanging out by the spa pool until dinner.
We ate dinner at Beauty and Essex that evening and had some very creative dishes that included a cool spin on avocado toast and a Thai chicken dish. I had a very green thyme lime gimlet which was different but delightful.
Next we went to the Britney Spears concert at Planet Hollywood. Britney’s show was fab with great set design and videos throughout.
The weekend was 36 hours of fun in Las Vegas and it went by fast. Las Vegas is the best place to get a lot done in a short amount of time.
