    Awesome lunch at Lago. I have the minestrone soup and meatballs and mom had the seafood salad and Branzino.

    We ordered one of each of the desserts, chocolate gamache cake and lemon meringue cake.

    Great deal for $28

    That is amazing for $28! I'm going to have to make that a Must Do on my next trip out.

    Enjoying the Food Porn while the wife feeds me and the kids Hamburger Helper.....without the hamburger.....does just fine by itself according to cousin Eddie.

    Anyway, glad I can *pretend* to be eating something better while living vicariously through another of your outstanding reports.

    Best of Luck in Vegas! I hope Santa puts a big sack of cash in your stocking (as opposed to a bag of dicks).

    Merry Christmas and enjoy my friend!

    Good luck and awesome pics as always Alexanbo! The sauce on those meatballs looked like it would go really well with a bread basket (they do give you one, do they?). Stupid me for not making it to Lago a few weeks back, I even made reservation through Open Table!

    No bread, maybe because it was lunch.

    Sent mom shopping and went gambling but that didn't turn out so well.

    Watched the first fountain show of the day

    Oh I guess I hit one quad at some point

    Ended up at Cosmo again as mom wanted to play more VP.

    Had a super strong peach ciroc.

    Now at Mandarin bar having a pre dinner drink

    Went to midnight mass last night

    Slept in this morning.

    Went to Lemongrass for lunch.

    I went to the host office and I had gambled enough for a lunch comp. in some ways not getting ecs for table games has helped me a little as I'm not staying at Aria so typically wouldn't have gone and got the difference between what they gave me in ecs and any extra I may have earned. It does mean I have to plan out where to eat and I lose any comps earned the last night.

    For a nice traditional Christmas lunch we had some dim sum, stamped pork buns, fried sesame balls and pad Thai. For desert mango sticky rice.

    fried sesame balls are my favorite.
