Concerts and Cuisine in Las Vegas



In the middle of last month I spent a quick long weekend in Vegas to check out the legendary Elton John with the Million Dollar Piano show at Caesar's Palace. This was my 3rd show at the excellent Forum which somehow manages to feel intimate even when you have the lowest tier seating. Fantastic concert, very theatrical and a bucket list check item for sure. Elton John was engaging, sang beautifully and interacted with the audience warmly.






Among many other highlights, if you are lucky Winter in Vegas (especially in February) offers sunny skies with crisp air that is cool but feels great compared to dreary winter in southern Ontario.

Enjoyed trying some new places, dishes and treats during my all too short getaway, including some southwest cuisine!

A bit of a splurge was finally checking out Bobby Flay's Mesa Grill at Caesar's Palace. Wonderful and convenient choice to dine at before the Elton John show. The flavorful and tender 16 spice chicken was excellent. I would definitely come back to try other unique southwestern cuisine here.

This short post was just a taste of a great night out that I enjoyed while in one of my favorite cities to explore.
