This post brought to you by Summer of Groupon. All opinions are 100% mine.
I've made it my goal this year to get out more. We are usually big time homebodies, but I'm ready for a change. After all, we live in VEGAS where there is SO much to do.
It can be pretty overwhelming when you're trying to figure out where to go for the evening and that's one of the reasons I enjoy using Groupon. Not only can you get great deals on places you already love, but you can find new places to experience and new activities to try too.
Just this past weekend I took my husband along on a food tour at the beautiful Caesars Palace. This was something that I normally wouldn't even consider doing. But, I need to learn what's out there in this city of mine some how, so I figured this would be perfect. And it was.
The tour is done by Nosh Las Vegas. And our tour guide, Joe, taught us so much about the five restaurants we visited and shared some interesting facts about Caesars and other parts of the strip too.
Our tour started off at Beijing Noodle #9, where we got to watch noodles being made and then we got to taste some of those yummy noodles too.
The second stop on the tour was Payard Patisserie and Bistro, a candy store/cafe/restaurant where we sampled a macaron and two different chocolates. I think it's safe to say this was my favorite stop.
Stop number three was at the Old Homestead Steakhouse. I'm not a huge meat eater, but I would totally go back for the great staff (and amazing tater tots). We got to meet a couple of the gentleman that work there and I could just imagine how great they would make your dining experience.
Next up was Gordon Ramsay's Pub and Grill. Unfortunately, Gordon was not there, but we got to meet Peter, who showed us around the place, including the dining area where they filmed the finale of the first season of Hell's Kitchen. We got to sample the delicious Little Piggy Deviled Eggs (with applewood bacon) and the Potted Scottish Salmon. This would definitely be a fun place to return with a group of friends.
Our last stop was at the food court. You won't find your normal food court restaurants here though. The Cypress Street Marketplace offers several casual dining options including Slice, where we got to try a slice of their cheese and pepperoni pizza.
We had a great time on the tour and left feeling pretty full. The only problem we have now, is trying to decide which of these restaurants we're going to visit first.
When is the last time you got out and tried something new?
If it's been awhile, then it's time to check Groupon and see what fun you can have in your area.
